Default USC RB's - Who Will Have The Biggest Impact In 2013?

With 2 weeks to go until Gameday, I...like everyone on this board...are very overdue for this season of USC football to finally get here.

So to pass the time...the question I have for everyone is:

Which of our RB's will have the bigger season?

I'm looking at Rushing & Receiving yards...throw in blocking for Shaw/Thompson passing game when we keep a back in the blocking scheme.

I kinda lean towards Wilds as more of a complete running back, but Davis has nice mix of speed and power...and it sounds like Carson is making strong push in fall camp.

GO COCKS!!!

I'm anxious to see all of them in action if our O-line is as strong as they're being talked up. What's the word on David Williams? I haven't heard much mentioned about him so I assume he's headed for a redshirt barring multiple injuries. I think Davis will end up with the most yards and Wilds doing a good job too. Hopefully Carson will stay healthy and be able to do some things too.

My guess is Carson. He's going to give it 110% because of the injuries that have kept him out of the line up. Not taking away anything from the other backs, but I think Carson will emerge as go to guy in the backfield this year.

I think Davis will be in for the most plays. I don't know that he'll get the most carries, but I believe he'll be the default back (for blocking). Wilds will be right behind him in snaps, and carries.

I really think Shon Carson is going to have an impact though. His speed and shiftiness remind me of Ace. If he gets a few steps of openness, he's going to make people miss and gain yards.

I am going out on a limb here and saying we will have 3 backs with over 800 rushing yards this season.

I think it'll be pretty even to start between Brandon and Mike, but I could see Shon having a coming out party against UGA as his intro to the SEC

i doubt there will be that many carries to go around. the key for us is going to be staying balanced no matter what back is in the game. im hoping that even without a lattimore, that having the different types of backs we have will make it less likely for us to abandon the run.

i'll go with wilds, but i really expect all 3 backs to make an impact this season.

I think we end up with around 2400/2500 rushing yards.

But shaw is gonna take some of those yards away from the RB's.

Wilds/Davis around 750 yards
Carson around 500 yards
Shaw around 400 yards

If we are dominant and run a lot in the second half. I think you could see:

Wilds/Davis around 900 yards
Carson 700 yards( more action for the 3rd guy in a blowout)
Shaw still around 400 yards
-that's 3000 yards rushing, which is a lot.

Didn't want to start a new thread..but listen to Coach Elliott speak on our OL. That's the most upbeat I've heard one of our coaches talk about our OL ever. I'm excited about our running game this year

I think our offensive line will allow us to be explosive against the lower-tier defenses we face this year and effective against the rest. I believe Wilds will be our main spread guy, and if we run mostly spread, I would expect 1000 yards. If we run a good bit of pistol and 2 back (including H back) I think Davis will crack 800. I expect Carson to be in the 600-800 range, also. I think if he starts breaking some long ones in big games, he might get a lot of carries and top 900. I hope Shaw's carries are limited to 4 or 5 a game this year. If the holes are there, he won't need to keep on the read plays. Don't be surprised to see one of our backs over 500 yards receiving if teams have to pull up to stop the run. Salley should get some carries and catches as well. The RB likely to get the most snaps will likely be the one who blocks best in pass protection.

Brandon Wilds is the better blocker so I could see him getting the start, and more carries. I think he should too. But I've stated my case on that in all 15 of the RB's threads we've had.

I think Carson will make significant plays this year. Obviously we'll find out over the next couple of months. I don't have their 40 times in front of me, but from what I say at practice - Carson is faster, if only laterally than both.

I thought to myself 'we gotta him some dump off's to him with 5 yards of space in front of him, he'll be scary' - and I heard a coach echo that a few days ago, something along the lines of 'Carson's real good out of the back field, he'll get some opportunities'.

Don't get me wrong, he'll be 3rd on the depth chart - I just think he'll produce more than other 3rd on the depth chart RB's in the SEC.
