T.J. Yeldon: Heisman Odds and Season Outlook for Alabama's Star RB
Crystal Logiudice-USA TODAY Sports

T.J. Yeldon burst onto the scene during his freshman year in 2012, putting together one of the best seasons in Alabama history for a freshman running back.

The Daphne, Ala., native rushed for 1,108 yards—the first Alabama true freshman to crack the 1,000-yard mark—and 12 touchdowns, spelling starter Eddie Lacy for the season.

This year, however, Yeldon will be the feature back. There is no solid No. 2 back like Alabama has had in years past, meaning Yeldon won't be splitting as many carries as previous starting backs have.

Given his success as a true freshman, and a featured role in the offense, Yeldon certainly has a chance to become Alabama's second ever Heisman Trophy winner.
