The Los Angeles Rams have been lucky to have a number of excellent running backs suit up for them throughout their history as an organization, including during their time in St. Louis and Cleveland.

The Los Angeles Rams are the only National Football League team to win three NFL championships in three different cities—Cleveland (1945), Los Angeles (1951), and St. Louis (1999), and such success necessitates the presence of some of the league’s top running backs.

Here is a list of the top 5 Los Angeles Rams Best Running Backs Of All-Time

1. Marshall Faulk

In the history of the team, Marshall Faulk is the greatest running back. With the Colts in the mid- to late-1990s, Faulk established himself as a superstar, and he improved even further with the Rams.

He is the only player in NFL history to have accumulated 12,000 rushing yards and 6,000 receiving yards in a career, and his stint with the Rams surely made that possible. During his final season with the Indianapolis Colts, Faulk rushed for 2,227 yards and scored 10 total touchdowns.

2. Eric Dickerson

Dickerson ran for 1,808 yards as a rookie with the Rams in 1983, setting a new NFL record. Dickerson then ran for 2,105 yards in a season in 1984, setting an NFL record for rushing yards.

He gained 7,245 rushing yards and scored 56 touchdowns during his five seasons with the Los Angeles Rams. Dickerson is widely regarded as one of the best running backs in the history of the Rams and the NFL as a whole.

3. Steven Jackson

Running for 3,625 and 39 touchdowns, not counting the 680 gained while receiving 65 passes and 240 on seven kickoff returns with one touchdown, Steven Jackson had a great college career.

It should be noted that Jackson’s total all-purpose yards are a school record for the Beavers. Jackson was the top running back in St. Louis, and he had a career-high 2,334 offensive yards in 2006, when he led the NFL.

4. Todd Gurley

In 2012, Gurley rushed for 1,385 yards and 17 touchdowns; in 2013, he rushed for 989 yards and 10 touchdowns. Even though he only started 12 games as a rookie, he put together an impressive campaign. For the first time since his rookie season in 2016, he was the NFL’s leading touchdown scorer in both 2017 and 2018.

5. Dick Bass

Dick Bass had a stellar college career as a running back for the University of the Pacific Tigers in 1958, when he carried for 1,361 yards and was named an All-American.

Bass, who is known for his speed, started the first two seasons of his career exclusively in the return game. With an average return rate of 30.3 yards on kick returns and a 90-yard punt return for score, he was the league’s most productive kick returner in 1961.
