The SEC is going to be filled with great running backs in the 2014-15 college football season. Heck, one of the RBs could end up winning the Heisman. With the season right around the corner, let’s take a look at the top five runners in the SEC.

2013 Stats: 382 yards, 3 TDs

Derrick Henry didn’t have that great of overall stats, but he did average 10.6 yards per carry last season. There is one other RB in front of Henry on the depth chart, but he is still supposed to have a very productive season. For what it’s wroth, Henry rushed for 100 yards and one score against Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl. He also had 61 receiving yards and another TD.

4. Alex Collins, Arkansas

The Arkansas Razorbacks will more than likely struggle once again in 2014, but the same thing cannot be said about Alex Collins, who could be one of the best running backs in the nation.

3. Mike Davis, South Carolina

Unlike Arkansas, South Carolina will be one of the best teams in the country, and Mike Davis will be one of the best running backs. He put up great numbers last season and could see those numbers increase even more.

2. Todd Gurley, Georgia

Todd Gurley very well could be the best RB in the nation, but he comes in at No. 2 on this list. Gurley missed three games last season and he still managed to put up great numbers.

2013 Stats: 1,235 yards, 14 TDs

T.J. Yeldon has had two 1000-yard seasons for the Alabama Crimson Tide and that will not change in the upcoming season. One thing that could keep Yeldon from winning a Heisman is the simple fact that Alabama has a stacked backfield. Nonetheless, he is a terrific running back.
