In recent years, the Alabama Crimson Tide has become the new USC Trojans, sending running backs to the NFL. Eddie Lacy, Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson and T.J. Yeldon are all in the league now. Derrick Henry, their 6’3″, 241-pounder is looking to build on a 990-yard season with 11 TDs in 2014 to go next year.

But Alabama has another running back that may be better than all of the aforementioned names. Kenyan Drake is a big-time talent that was injured in 2015 but could come back strong in 2015. His skill-set could make him a dynamic weapon in the NFL and that strong 2015 could make him a first-round pick.
