Running Backs

  1. Carlos Hyde
  2. Ka’Deem Carry
  3. Jeremy Hill
  4. a. Tre Mason  4b. Bishop Sankey
  5. Storm Johnson

Updating the rakings Carlos Hyde still tops the rankings and Ka’Deem Carry is right behind him. Both to me are franchise backs that can be the focal point of there prospective offenses. Jeremy Hill is similar to Hyde in that he is a bigger back but he still has some wiggle to him. He is another guy that if he can keep his head on straight he could be a real asset.  I have to include Tre Mason because you don’t rush for 1800 yards and 23 touchdowns in the SEC without having some skill. Mason isn’t going to block real well but he does offer instant impact on special teams and as a powerful slashing runner. Bishop Sankey was a ultra productive this year, running for 1870 yards and 20 touchdowns, but I don’t see him being a feature back. Some have compared him to Giovani Bennard, I don’t see it, Sankey doesn’t have playmaking ability that Gio has.  Storm Johnson is a guy that a team can get in the mid rounds and see instant return on their investment. When watching tape of Johnson you see power, vision, burst, and good hands catching the ball. He could be this years Zac Stacy.
