Alabama has had exceptional talent at the running back position in recent years, and this year will be no different.

Junior RB T.J. Yeldon received the majority of the carries last season, but don't expect the same going forward.

Sophomore RB Derrick Henry showed signs of brilliance last year, especially in the Sugar Bowl loss to Oklahoma. Henry is a man-beast and reminds many of a young Eddie Lacy.

Bleacher Report's Michael Felder and Barrett Sallee weigh in on what to expect from the Crimson Tide backfield next season.

Watch the video to learn why Sallee predicts Henry will be the No. 1 RB to start next season and what kind of stats Henry and Yeldon will put up for Alabama next fall.
