I'd like to throw Barry Sanders into the discussion.

Nope. But he definitely had the potential to be in the discussion 

the ultimate proof of his ability is after sitting out for 5 years after the injury and getting up to over 300lbs. He decides to give football another try and loses all the weight and makes an roster and managed to hand around the nfl for a couple of years. 

No telling what a healthy Dupree could have accomplished

I think Jim Brown was the best but I also think that if you aren't looking at career longevity I'd take Terrell Davis.  The guy was unstoppable and the whole league knew it.

Davis has to be one of the best big game play off backs ever. 8 playoff games. Only one under a 100 yards. 91 in that game. 4 play off games over 150. He carried Denver to those two rings. He showed up huge in every play off game during that 2 year run

Interesting quote about him on his Wiki page:

“For every Marcus Allen, Barry Sanders or Emmitt Smith, there's an Anthony Thompson, a Paul Palmer and a LeShon Johnson, guys who never matched their college success in the NFL. Some of the unfortunate ones were too small. Others were just a step too slow. But you'll also find a select few individuals who had all the tools. They're the ones who didn't achieve NFL success for reasons of circumstance. Such was the case with Marcus Dupree, a star running back who lit the college football scene on fire as a freshman in 1982. ”
—?Marc Connolly, ABC Sports Online

Seems like he had all the tools but couldn't keep his shit together mentally.

Depends on how you define goat. Eric Dickerson and Ladamian Tomlinson should be in the running along with Brown , Sanders , and Payton

Gale Sayers had a great yet injury shortened career.

Jim Brown - he didn’t run from tacklers he ran over them. There were no PEDs back then, no personal trainers, no indoor practice facilities, etc. Watch him in old films - he was a b-a-d man.
