SEC Football Backup Running Backs Who Would Start in Other Conferences

Published by Bleacher Report on Wed, 17 Aug 2016

As shallow as the SEC's pool of quarterbacks is this season, it's running backs well is just as deep.Blessed with a trio of running backs who should be among the nation's best in LSU's Leonard Fournette, Georgia's Nick Chubb and Tennessee's Jalen Hurd, the league has plenty of star power. Toss in unsung studs such as Vanderbilt's Ralph Webb and Kentucky's Boom Williams, and the SEC is back-loaded.That's not even mentioning some talented guys who'll shoulder the load for the first time like Alabama's Bo Scarbrough, Arkansas' Rawleigh Williams and Florida's Mark Thompson.
