Cameron Artis-Payne - Senior - Big, powerful back that can make vertical cuts on a dime and accelerate faster than any linebacker. Saw flashes of brilliance against Arkansas State, LSU, WCU and Missouri. Ran for over 2,000 yards his last year of JUCO.

Peyton Barber - RS Freshman - Was redshirted because of our depth at RB this year and has taken great advantage of working out and getting ready for next year. He's bulked up to 230 and is running even faster than he was when he arrived at 217. From player's and coach's accounts he is a total monster and dominated on scout team this year. Ran for 1,700 yards as a senior in HS.

Roc Thomas - Freshman - The big time, blue chip recruit. Shifty with elite acceleration and vision. Is more muscular than he seems and can break tackles. Great receiver out of the backfield and can play in the slot if needed. Ran for 2,000 yards in high school this year despite nagging ankle injuries.

I'd go with Roc Thomas just on name alone.

But srsly, he sounds like the most versatile, which would make him more valuable in that offense. That's assuming that he can block of course.

Thomas needs to put on some weight to take the carries in the backfield like Mason, either way he's a dangerous threat in the sweep role.

Artis-Payne should get a shot.

CAP didn't impress me this year, but a change of roles and another offseason could make him one of the best in the SEC. He has all the attributes.

IMO CAP and Grant will be used about like they were this year... I think we should either redshirt Roc Thomas or just give him a few carries a game... Let him bulk up, learn the system, and get comfortable. I really think Peyton Barber could be a monster in this offense... I'm excited to see what he can do because I could see him going for 1,000+ yards as a freshman in this offense if he gets the carries.

CAP's got the physical skills, but I think he had to have done something to piss coaches off... He only had 5 carries in the last 4 games total. Makes me wonder if something happened in practice.

I am interested to see the three of them battle for the starting job - should result in one or two top RBs on the field for us.

I really hope that we can move Johnathan Ford back to TB. He looks to have really good speed with some shake and bake to go with it.

ROC is a real beast; possibly the best naturally talented RB we've seen yet. And Malzahn ain't afraid to play freshmen. Dyer?
