Yesterday, we looked at the quarterback board in regards to the top 10 prospects in the country at that position. We examined and predicted what they could do in their first year in college, with some being candidates to redshirt while others were deemed contenders for playing time.
Today we'll move over to the running backs and do the same thing. I've always maintained that it is easiest to impact as a running back in college and the NFL. It's an instinctive position, and if a back can get the run schemes down quickly, then he can play free and let his natural ability take over.
Some of the running backs in this year's class have a chance to see immediate time, while a few may be in store for red-shirt years.
