You could have probably just left a placeholder at #2 for the LSU RB. Every year they have some some badass back.
I actually almost just put #2 - whoever LSU ends up handing it to
I didn't know this, but LSU only signed 1 RB in the past 2 classes and that was Jeremy Hill. I know they lost Spencer Ware to the NFL, so if Hill is suspended too, they might have some depth issues.
I think you're right about Mason. I expect him to have a big season.
Aubrey, where would you rank the A&M running backs on this list and in the SEC?
I'd have Malena somewhere between about four and seven in the SEC and it's sort of TBD on the rest. Malena ran for average well a season ago, but I just don't know that he'll get enough carries to have elite status in the SEC like Gurley, Yeldon, etc.
Brandon Williams hasn't taken a snap yet and Trey wasn't really a huge factor last season in the rushing game last season. He only had 376 yards total and 109 of those were in the blowout of Auburn. I think both of those guys have the talent to be among the SEC's best, and they're certainly gamebreaker type players, but they haven't shown it game action yet so it's hard to rank them against players we have seen in games.
