Carlton Thomas: Exploding Out of Georgia's Back Field in 2009

Robert HollandCorrespondent IMarch 30, 2009

We're going to miss Knowshon Moreno—no doubt about it.

But do not think for a minute that the Georgia Bulldogs don't have running backs who are hungry, motivated, and ready to show the world exactly what they're made of.

Here's one such back that you may, or may not, be aware of...

Introducing Carlton Thomas!

Calton Thomas is one of new guys in Georgia's back field that is ready to explode through the line and dominate the opposing defense with his speed, devastating cut backs, and highly underestimated power will.

Thomas will be, in my opinion, not only a dominating running back on Georgia's offense, but I predict him to be one of the top backs in the SEC—if not the No. 1 back in the SEC!

Bold prediction?

Perhaps...but his speed, power, and ability to cut back and leave defenders paralyzed is unprecedented.

Honestly, I see a lot similarities between Reggie Bush and Carlton Thomas.

I do know that I can't wait to see this guy on opening day!

Check out this his amazing senior year highlight film.
