Running Back: Brandon Jacobs
At 6'4" and 264 lbs., Brandon Jacobs is not only the tallest running backs, he is easily one of the biggest in NFL history too. In fact, he is larger than most linebackers in the NFL.
Jacobs only carried the ball 38 times for 99 yards during his rookie season, but seven of those 38 carries resulted in touchdowns. It was at this point that I truly believe he was among the top five halfbacks in the league, as he finished the season with 1,089 yards (five per carry) and 15 touchdowns in 13 games.
The 6-foot-4, 250-pound back carried for a total of 5,094 yards and 60 touchdowns. With such massive proportions at just 14 years old, Jacobs' son certainly has the potential to follow in his NFL footsteps.
Jacobs retired after nine NFL seasons. He spent eight years with the New York Giants and won Super Bowls in 2007 and 2011. He spent one season in San Francisco in 2012 before a final year back with the Giants. He finished with 5,094 rushing yards and 60 touchdowns in 109 games.
