1. Todd Gurley, Georgia

When it comes to SEC running backs, there are none better than Georgia's Todd Gurley.

In his freshman year, Gurley ran for 1,385 yards and 22 touchdowns, including nine 100-yard efforts.

He was amazing from Day 1, and was a huge reason the Bulldogs made it to the SEC Championship Game.

Gurley is expected to do the same this year. Fans only hope he can do a little more damage on South Carolina than he got to do last year.

He has breakaway speed and is not afraid to hit the hole. 

Come Aug. 31 against Clemson, he'll be ready to go as he makes a bid to be the best running back in the SEC. The next week, he'll get a chance to prove it against one of the best defenses in the league in South Carolina.
