Full RideB/R VideoOctober 20, 2016

It's all about speed, size and power for the top running backs in the Class of 2013. And with that unique combination, these five men are likely to make a big impact come day one on campus.

Headlining the class is Kelvin Taylor, son of former NFL running back Fred Taylor. The 5'10", 210-pound tailback is already built to handle the pounding of the SEC, but hear what 247 Sports' National Scouting Director J.C. Shurburtt says makes him the top back in the 2013 class.

The runner-up in the class is Thomas Tyner, an Oregon state track and football star who will stay at home to play for the Ducks next year.

So who rounds out the top five? Watch to see J.C. break down Oklahoma verbal commit Keith Ford, Alabama pledge Altee Tenpenny and hear what intrigues college coaches most about top all-purpose back Alvin Kamara, who is said to be heavily considering Alabama and Georgia (via ESPN's TideNation).
