Why he’s on the list: Maurice Jones-Drew is an explosive, pint-sized, 5 feet, 7 inches tall, with all the moves to dodge the behemoths. He carried the Jaguars in 2011 with his league-leading 1,606 yards, accounting for 39 percent of the total offensive yards for the team. He remains popular off the field with his own fantasy football radio show on SiriusXM.
