No. 10 Todd Gurley

Position: Running back

School: Georgia

Height: 6-foot-1

Why he's No. 10: This big, fast tailback had a remarkable true freshman season in 2012, bursting on the scene to rush for 1,385 yards (the sixth most in school history) and 17 touchdowns. He rushed for a season-high 130 yards against both Vanderbilt and Tennessee on his way to becoming only the second true freshman in school history to rush for 1,000 yards. He was a first-team All-SEC selection who had nine 100-yard rushing games in 12 starts and averaged 6.2 yards a carry. Gurley enters his sophomore season as a preseason All-American and a Heisman candidate.
