CFB Running Back Preview



By: Ryan Quigley

2022 was a great season for Running backs, we saw 2 RBs go in the top 12 of this most recent NFL draft. Not sure if that will be the case for 2024 but we still have plenty of love and great opportunities for the 2023 College Football season, here are a few running backs I am looking forward to this upcoming season:

TreVeyon Henderson, Ohio State 

The Buckeyes have had an explosive offense for many years and even with the amount of talent coming through Columbus TreVeyon found his way on the field with early playing time, patient runner with speed and a threat in the passing game. Hoping for a fully healthy season out of Henderson after being banged up last season.

Raheim Sanders, Arkansas

Size and Speed, that’s what Raheim Sanders brings to the Razorbacks. Quarterback KJ Jefferson and Sanders make for quite the dynamic, that combo with the coaching style of Sam Pittman should make for a fun fall for the Hogs.

Braelon Allen, Wisconsin

On, Wisconsin! You have to have a Badger in the RB preview, right? Adding another big body runner to the list and I love seeing a playmaker grouped together with the steady offensive line of Wisconsin. Expect a heavy workload and great opportunity to make some noise in Madison.

Audric Estime, Notre Dame

Here come the Irish! Audric has a fascinating opportunity with the addition of QB Sam Hartman and departure to the transfer portal with RB Logan Diggs. Runs violent, has had some issues with ball security in the past and hoping those days are behind him.

Will Shipley, Clemson

Fine, I will get it out of my system early. “Cerebral runner, student of the game, Christian McCaffrey type” I will say, I do like watching this former 5 Star recruit play, great instincts and great acceleration that make for a fun highlight reel. Let’s see if Shipley can get Clemson back on track to the playoff conversation they were in not long ago.

Blake Corum/Donovan Edwards, Michigan

This dynamic may be my favorite in college football, a true thunder and lightning backfield coupled with the back-to-back Joe Moore Award winners (Best Offensive Line) Blake Corum deciding to come back to Ann Arbor may have been surprising but in the world of NIL and a great opportunity of split carries it makes plenty of sense to me. This offense is who I would want to see running down the clock and protecting a 4th quarter lead, not getting ahead of the season also but could you imagine an OSU three-peat??
