Default How would you rank these RB's?

I was watching some college football before these guys were drafted and I remember thinking Felix Jones looked like a better back than McFadden. I posted my opinion over at the Planet, made a lot of sarcastic remarks about McF's lack of vision, said that I would rather have Jones. Of course several people called me and idiot and whatnot. I was just thinking about this while watching them again tonight. Now that I've seen Hillis, Jones and McF play- I'd pick them in that order. What say you, denizens of the Mane?

McFadden is the best back by leaps and bounds. He just plays for a ****ty team.

Is this to take into account salary/draft position (ie bang for the buck)?

When I posted it I was thinking along the lines of best at performing their individual jobs/roles and how much of an effect those roles had on their respective teams. I love what Hillis brings to our team and I'm impressed with Jones' vision and body control. McF didn't impress me. Seems raw and runs blind/dumb.

Take it however you want it though if you want to make a different point. I was hoping to stir discussion more than anything else. I figured a poll would let the more casual people chime in and anybody that wanted to could make a comment as to why they picked the way they did.
