David James Rankin (born 12 July 1960) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with Fitzroy in the Victorian Football League (VFL) and East Fremantle in the West Australian Football League (WAFL).

Rankin came to Fitzroy from Colac and made six appearances for Fitzroy in the 1980 VFL season.[2] One of his most productive games came against South Melbourne when he had 20 disposals and kicked a goal.[2] He didn't participate in a single win that year but Fitzroy won all three games that he played in 1981, final final season.[2]

For the rest of the 1980s, Rankin played at East Fremantle, mostly in defense or on the wing.[3] He was a member of East Fremantle's 1985 premiership team, playing as a wingmman in their five point grand final win over Subiaco.[3]
