PFF rates the most elusive backs in the NFL the past 3 seasons and we have 2 of the top 10 with Johnathan Stewart being #1 and Deangelo Williams at #9. Mike Tolbert also made the list at #15. The NFC South has a strong showing overall with Michael Turner at #3, Pierre Thomas at #7, and Jason Snelling at #8.

Note that elusive in their view means forcing missed tackles and getting extra yards.

Eluding being tackled is elusive.

Is their really a guy watching every game and every snap a player makes to see how many tackles he misses? if so i want to meet that guy and shake his hand for having the most boring job in the world.

ya I dont know if Id call it elusive but it is most certainly syntactically correct right? I would say he is the hardest to tackle, and if you combine that with no fumbles and good blocking, Im pretty sure you could make a case for best RB in the league.

PFF also ranks him as one of the worst blocking RB's in the league....so there's that
