We all know how important a running back can be to a team. Ask Reggie Bush or Mark Ingram how running the ball well can be beneficial. 

Most of the following backs may not be ready to take their team to a title just yet. But they are the ones we will want to keep our eyes on in the coming year. 

Though this year’s draft was not particularly filled with running backs, that does not mean that there won’t be many starting roles in backfields around the country that need to be filled.

I have never heard of a team wanting to lose a running back or wanting to lose that continuity, but every team has to go through it at some point. Replacing a starter and beginning a new era (at any position, for that matter) is a tall task for any coaching staff.

The following are the running backs I am most interested in. I want to see if they can establish themselves in their first year as (in some cases, simply full-time) number one on the depth chart.
