If 2013 was the year of the quarterback in the Southeastern Conference, 2014 is shaping up to be the year of the running back.
Some all-star backs return to the SEC and will be joined by a wealth of lightning-fast ball-carriers. With half of the conference's quarterbacks lost to graduation or the NFL, these running backs will be relied on heavily to bang in big yards and big scores.
