This might be a bit of a projection, but David Sims makes the cut as one of the top backs in the conference. Sims sees running lanes extremely well (he was once a quarterback for the Jackets) and often hits them with good speed. He is also in a run-first offense that will give him many opportunities to shine. 

The big question for Sims will be health, as nagging injuries seemed to hinder his ability to make an impact last year. Should he stay healthy this year, he could have a huge impact in Georgia Tech's offense.
