Sorry, but UGA is in a league by themselves if the RB's are healthy.

I think 3rd is about right for us.

Nothing really sticks out to me other than I would put Kelvin Taylor in my Top 5. I think he is going to be special.

Team wise:

1) Interested to see who becomes Derek Mason's workhorse at Vandy. They are shifting to that Stanford philosophy so that means someone is going to be getting a crap ton of carries.

2) Anxious to see how Jalen Hurd comes back from his knee injury but I don't think the Vols have the depth to avoid overworking him.

3) Leonard Fournette is going to be amazing. I know people like Les Miles' RB rotation but I think it hurts them sometimes. IMO, they need that 20-25 carry guy and then a change of pace instead of a 5 man committee.

4) Auburn is way too high unless Racean Thomas goes nuts. I think Mizzou is too high as well.

5) Florida has a chance to have a hellacious running game if Taylor keeps improving. I would move them up and I think Ole Miss should be higher too.

6) Little worried about aTm's backs .. Tre Williams can absolutely fly and if they can find their workhorse, look out.

Any list with Auburn that low is nuts, and any list without Corey Grant is a farce.

What exactly have they done? Artis-Payne had nice games against cream puffs. Grant didn't get over 10 carries in one game all season long.

You're nuts but we already know that.

So this Alabama team must be pretty good

Over 600 yards in a back up roll. Grant averaged 9.7 yards a carry, and runs a sub 4.2 40.

That's great and all but his best games were against Washington State (meh), Western Carolina (meh meh), and Florida Atlantic (meeeeehhhhhhhhh).

So that leaves him with 306 yards against SEC competition. Color me skeptical.

I agree. Oh, and color me skeptical about a sub 4.2 40.

Hand timed was 4.11, but the laser time was much slower, 4.18.

I did find it interesting that Wilds was not listed in the top ten, esp after they said there was not much drop off from Davis to him.

Unfortunately the 4.11/4.18 is legit.

Can someone embed? On my cell.

He's also pretty strong. He ducks his head and goes for the hit instead of stepping out of bounds.

There is no other back in the nation for whom I would trade MD28.

Has it ever been answered why you post on a USC message board so much? I would never go to say an Arkansas message board and talk constantly about USC all the time. It just doesn't make any sense. Do you even post on Auburn boards? Why post here about Auburn stuff to an audience that cares zero about Auburn? It would at least make sense if you did it at a Bama board or something or LSU (a team in your division)
