Clemson
Height: 5’10” • Weight: 215
Travis Etienne was an integral part of Clemson’s offense and has the makings of a number one back in the NFL. Etienne makes smooth cuts in tight spaces, and his powerful running style paired with his slipperiness makes him a difficult tackle.

Alabama

Najee Harris is an imposing player with incredible athleticism. Most teams will see him as a bell cow back, and rightfully so. As a runner, Harris displays great vision, patience, and is quick to make his cut when an opening presents itself.


4. Michael Carter
UNC
Height: 5’8″ • Weight: 201
Michael Carter is another talented running back from North Carolina. He is a big-play threat in open space thanks to his lateral quickness and ability to avoid contact. Similar to Javonte Williams, Carter is also a capable option in the passing game.


5. Kenneth Gainwell
Memphis
Height: 5’11” • Weight: 201
Kenneth Gainwell can be a weapon for a creative offensive coordinator. Gainwell can line up anywhere on offense and thrives as a pass-catcher. As a runner, he was a threat on outside runs and was a playmaker in the open field.
