Running Backs

T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry are one of the best running back duos in college football, but their rushing totals are perhaps a little lower this season than expected.

Yeldon raced to more than 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons on campus, and became the first Alabama player ever to do so. The junior currently leads the squad with 758 rushing yards in ten games and with 242 yards before the end of the 2014 season Yeldon would become the first Crimson Tide player to break the 1,000-yard mark three times in his career. Also, Yeldon now has 32 career rushing touchdowns, which puts him sixth on the Alabama career leaderboard. Yeldon needs ten more TDs to tie Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram’s school record of 52.

He’s a receiving threat out of the backfield as well, and ranks fourth on the team with 14 catches.

Henry is second on the squad with 682 rushing yards on 134 carries and leads the Tide with seven rushing touchdowns. He has a unique combination of speed and power that forces Kiffin to get him the ball. Not many players would take carries away from T.J. Yeldon, but Henry has.

Jalston Fowler is the fullback, though he is athletic enough to play tailback. At 6-foot-1, 248 pounds, Fowler hasn’t been used much as a ball carrier this season, but has two TD catches.

Tyren Jones and Altee Tenpenny have provided depth following Kenyan Drake’s injury.
