The only reason Woods, a sophomore, doesn't sit higher on this list is because we don't know if he'll share downs with running mate Terron Ward, a sophomore. In 2012, Woods racked up 1,253 yards of total offense compared to Ward's 494.

However, the lopsided numbers don't tell the whole story, as Woods struggled getting through games due to a lack of physical stamina. Many times, Ward would finish out fourth-quarter possessions.

Bottom line: If Woods receives more carries, and can stay strong through entire games, he'll find himself ranked higher on this list by season's end.
