The Jaguars have a running back ranked among the top players in the NFL. God bless America.

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Ivory has earned a spot on the NFL Top 100 list. Ivory signed with the Jaguars last month on a five-year, $32.5 million contract.

Ivory, 27, is coming off the best year of his career rushing for 1,070 yards, which was the sixth most in the NFL, and finding the end zone on the ground seven times. That latter part is something that should help the Jaguars and likely a large part of why they went after Ivory so aggressively. He should be the perfect compliment to T.J. Yeldon for a nice 1-2 combination in the running game.
