10. 2. T.J. Yeldon, Alabama
What other backup running back do you know that rushed for more than 1,000 yards last year?
T.J. Yeldon rushed for 1,108 yards backing up Eddie Lacy as the Crimson Tide won their third national title in four years.
Now, Yeldon is the feature back for the Tide, which means opposing defenses better watch out.
The Tide come out of the gate strong against Virginia Tech and Texas A&M. Yeldon's presence will be especialy important in the second game as Alabama looks to avenge last year's defeat.
