Ray Rice impressed some folks in his rookie season two years ago, putting up solid numbers and displaying amazing speed and quickness.
There was only one problem. Despite gaining over 700 total yards on just 140 touches, Rice failed to get into the end zone.
As he took over the feature back role in Baltimore, this problem started to go away. However, when Rice ended the season with eight scores on over 320 total touches, it left something to be desired.
Thank Willis McGahee for that. Thank Ray Rice's deceptively small frame, too.
Rice isn't a large man, weighing at just 210 lbs and generously listed at 5'8''. True, the guy is small for a running back, but he's no pushover.

In fact, many would go as far to say he's the third option behind Adrian Peterson and Chris Johnson.
