True SEC Tailbacks? Not many.

But we have / will have some dudes who could line up in the backfield and run the ball. Hayden Johnson isn't dynamic enough to be a tailback, but he could line up and do some short yardage work possibly. He knows protections/blocking and he knows the QB/RB exchange.

Justice Hill and Treylon Burks both played every position on the field in high school, including QB and RB so while neither is a tailback, again they could take snaps.

Depth for guys who could line up and tote the rock 20+ times in a game is not great. Really we have Rakeem and Devwah. Chase Hayden flashes some real talent from time to time, but he seems to end up with too many stuffs and negative yardage plays. IDK anything about the WR they moved to RB for the spring.

HogJowler:

I think Spivey might deem a look. 👀 At least that is the reason we recruited him.

Curtis could develop into a really good RB, he has speed and moves and can return kicks as well. Go to 2:23 of this video to see some of his offensive skills.

Yes. Of course. Should have listed him with Devwah and Rakeem as a roster tailback.

Nice. Thanks.

Looks like he is one of those with a smooth, kinda gliding stride that is deceptively fast.

Totally agree
Has tremendous potential as RB

Would have liked to see more runs with contact. OL was blasting some big holes on those runs and it looked like he wasn't touched on those TDs.

But then he outran everyone on the field, so there is that :)


plumbhog:

Malik Chavis doubled as a running back and safety.

Bacons Rebellion:

Don't forget that the main problem with getting freshmen running backs on the field is their pass blocking.

Most guys don't wanna give that any weight.  "He's fast as hell, put him in and give him the damn ball!"

Of course, about the third time he gets the QB's dickstring knocked loose, then it will be "that kid only tries when he knows he's getting the ball!"

Malik is a little light..but I do recall a guy of about the same size (Fred Talley) being an effective RB in the SEC.  Might be a guy who could get some snaps at RB, to add a little depth.

That's one thing that I noticed in Curtis' video, he isn't afraid to step up and block for his QB. I have to assume that having started out on the D side of the ball, he has no problem with contact. But I do think that they need to put about 10-15 lbs on him between now and the fall.

Superhog1959:

I know this is pointless now, but I wish we still had Malik Williams. I really thought he had potential.

I loved it every time he got the ball.

I think there is near HV universal agreement on this. Itís a head scratcher I just quit scratching my head about.

TheRazorback500:

De'vion Warren played some RB in high school if I'm not mistaken. Hayden Johnson could help in short yardage.

Yeah he needs to add a couple lbs, but I'm sure that's gonna be in the works anyway. But he does have 4.39 speed and back to back 1000 yard seasons as the #2 RB while starting as safety. The thing about Malik is he would play nose guard if that's where they wanted him.

oldfart:

i think maybe a workable grad transfer would be nice to have........

Yep, Warren is the first one I thought of, who could possibly help out.

#1 STUNNA:

have heard that Burks will have a wildcat package from people close him.
