Default 2010 Top power rushing teams in college football

These are the top power rushing teams I have for the up coming college football season. It is based on their returning talent of last year and is a combination of offensive line talent, tight end blockers, full backs and number of talented running backs. And by power I mean teams with talented offensive line blockers that are good groups in general and talented weapons to run the ball with who are aggressive runners.





1)
Easily at the top, have talent at all positions and their running back core is as good as any. The offensive line always plays well as a group. The likes of Carpenter, Vlachos and Jones should be even better than last year and if Fluker plays up to his potential they could be dominating, much less Williams being a monster blocker at tight end.
RB Ingram, Richardson, Goode
FB Dial
OT Carpenter
OG
C Vlachos
OG B. Jones
OT Fluker
TE M. Williams







2)
Pryor makes them an elite running team, Saine has good ability and so does Herron but at this time they do not have an elite back, possibly a freshman or newcomer will come in and take over that role. Until then Pryor is their best back and is a a major weapon, plus they have two outstanding full backs and a punishing line with the lines or Boren and Brewster.
QB Pryor
RB Saine, Herron
FB Boren, Martin
OT Adams
OG Boren
C Brewster
OG Browning
OT Shugarts







3)
Probably the best offensive line in the nation, very deep, very big and very strong. Can just run over people with their power. Harris is a fine running back that is very consistent and McCluskey is a fine blocker, look for them to be a very powerful running team come this fall. If they had better running back weapons they would be higher on the list though.
RB M. Harris, Haden
FB McCluskey
OT Castonzo
OG Cleary
C Richman
OG Claiborne
OT Lapham, Goodman







4)
Should be a great running team, Newton will be a star, big huge quarterback that has wheels. He will make Fannin and McCalebb even better backs, and they are already both pretty good. The offensive line is very experienced and has stars with Ziemba and Pugh.
QB C. Newton
RB Fannin, McCalebb
OT Ziemba
OG
C Pugh
OG Isom
OT V. Smith






5)
Fine running team, have some question marks on that offensive line and major question marks at tight end, such a key position for them last year. But still have great running backs, the star being Lewis and a wonderful full back with Hynoski plus and elite blocker in Pinkston.
RB Lewis, Graham
FB Hynoski
OT Pinkston
OG Jacobson
C
OG
OT Nix









6)
Could be higher on the list but they underachieve. If Bradford gets a lot of carries though, they could be a force because he is a beast of a back, plus they have great depth behind him. Havili is a fine full back and O'Dowd is one of the best centers around, if Smith, Kalil and Lewis play up to their potential they could be a great power football team.
RB Bradford, Tyler, Gable
FB Havili
OT M. Kalil
OG Heberer
C O'Dowd
OG B. Lewis
OT T.Smith, Henderson*
TE R. Ellison








7)
They would be much higher but the running backs are not elite, solid but not elite, if they find a more skilled back watch out. That offensive line is elite however, have tons of great talent and depth on that line. The very talented Glenn can play multiple positions, and they have fine tackles with Boling and J. Davis much less depth with Sturdivant behind them.
RB Ealey, King
FB Chapas
OT Boling, Sturdivant
OG Glenn, T. Strickland
C B. Jones
OG C. Davis
OT J. Davis








8
Would be far higher if they had more elite running backs, regardless they have one of the best offensive lines in the nation by far. Have star players with Martin, Beeler and DeCastro. Plus the best blocking full back around with Marecic. And Luck provides a little running ability as well at quarterback, but do not be surprised to see them do what they did last year even without Gerhart.
QB Luck
RB S. Taylor
FB Marecic
OT Martin
OG Phillips
C Beeler
OG DeCastro
OT
TE Fleener








9)
Ridley can be a beast at running back, very big kid and the key point for them is Parsons, a big huge player that is a very interesting blocker because he is the size of an offensive lineman. He could really create some matchup problems. Jefferson's mobility will help as well, plus the fact they have anchors on that line with Barksdale and Hebert.
QB Jefferson
RB Ridley
FB T. Parsons
OT Barksdale
OG
C T. Hebert
OG Hurst
OT








10)
A very solid rushing team but big question is can they do it without Dwyer. Jones is a decent talent and Allen has a lot of ability as well, plus Nesbitt who is an elite rushing quarterback with a lot of toughness and strength. On the line they are strong with Claytor and Gilbert run blocking.
QB Nesbitt
RB R. Jones
RB A. Allen
OT Claytor
OG Gilbert
C
OG
OT Smith







11)
The obvious choice with Clay being one of the most powerful running backs in the nation, big kid that is hard to bring down. Has a decent back with Ball behind him as well. The offensive line is solid with stars in Carimi and Moffitt. However they need a lot out of Oglesby and need to find good players in the middle if they want to be an elite rushing team.
RB Clay, Ball
OT Carimi
OG Moffitt
C
OG
OT Oglesby
TE Kendricks







12)
The running backs make this team, elite rushers with Williams and Evans, very solid and very consistent. Plus Taylor provides them a little mobility as well at quarterback. The offensive line is not all that powerful however, have decent players but not standout stars, if they did they would be a lot higher.
QB T. Taylor
RB Ryan Williams, D. Evans
FB Oglesby
OT DeChristopher
OG
C Warren
OG
OT









Note: Florida would have made the list easily, but I question who will get their tough yards. They are by far one of the best offensive lines in the nation but with speed backs in Demps and Rainey I question who will get the tough power yards Tebow got last year, thus I left them off this list.

RB Moody, Demps, Rainey
OT Gilbert
OG C. Johnson
C Pouncey
OG Hurt
OT X. Nixon




Florida State has tons of potential and one of the most experienced offensive lines in college football, but do not have real powerful rushers and are not committed to the run even though Ponder has some good wheels and they have such a talented offensive line. Possibly they could develop into a good running team but their toughness and consistency as an offense would have to really improve for that, plus find some better overall ball carries that can break tackles.

QB Ponder
RB J. Thomas
OT Datko
OG Hudson
C McMahon
OG Spurlock
OT Sanders

None of our running backs are all that good... I know keylime will probably come talk about Saine and whomever else, but they are average... the Buckeyes don't have a go-to-guy that has seperated themselves yet.

I would have Virginia Tech ahead of us.

I am aware of that, but like I said Pryor makes them a good rushing team because of his ability, Herron and Saine are solid and I am sure an new comer or underclassmen will step right in and contribute as well. More importantly that offensive line is rock solid so no matter who runs the ball they will more often than not be successful because of the guys blocking for them. Sure Va Tech has better running backs but the offensive lines are not even comparable what so ever.

Who is that? Richard Murphy? Anyway I would be shocked if Ridley is not the man for LSU this year running the football.

I'm still not sure how Pryor makes Ohio State a good power rushing team, considering he's not a power runner. Plus, OSU's offensive line, while talented, has not lived up to its press clippings. The interior is very good, led by Boren, but the outside guys haven't proven themselves yet.

Also, Wisconsin is too low.

I agree, but will see if those guys can live up to the hype this year, but yes jury on Adams is still out. As for Pryor, it gives them options running the football, just like Cam Newton gives Auburn options running the ball and ultimately makes them a much better rusher team. Sure he is not Tebow like in terms of power but he gets yards rushing, power no, but still effective.

Wisconsin, I have to see more form their inside lineman, have a few good players but not like lines they had in years past which are far better than this years one hypothetically. Clay is fun to watch though but that is because very few big backs are even around now a days it seems.

RB Lewis, Graham

OT Nix
Likely starters at positions unnamed...

QB - Tino Sunseri - 6'2" - 210lb - RS Soph
RB3 - Chris Burns - 5'11" - 200lb - RS Soph
C - Alex Karabin - 6'1" - 290lb - RS Sr | Jack Lippert - 6'4" - 285lb - RS Fr
RG - Greg Gaskins - 6'4" - 285lb - RS Jr (May swap positions with Lucas Nix at RT)
TE - Mike Cruz - 6'5" - 270lb - RS Soph (Look for former QB Greg Cross to perhaps play the Dorin Dickerson WR/TE combo)


With a young QB, you'd think the Panthers may take the "safe" route and run the ball every snap with Lewis and Graham.

What I believe that will happen is that instead of relying heavily on the likes of Dorin Dickerson, expect to see alot of great WR play. With Jonathan Baldwin and Mike Shanahan already established, watch for the emergence of 6'3" 180lb RS Frosh Devin Street who has already been compared to Baldwin in terms of upside.

I like lots from this list the only main thing I would change is Wisconsin should be wayyy higher probably #2 behind Bama. The list is missing RG Peter Konz who is a very good RG who started as a freshman last year.

Just a few small things are Eddie Lacy should probably be included as Bama's 3rd back and Jamall Berry who should be right in the rotation at RB for Ohio St behind Saine and Boom Herron and I'm pretty sure Haden transfered out of Boston College, and Jon Michael Boswell should be the starting LG for Bama.

Also to the poster above if LSU running games working this year it should be behind Michael Ford along with Ridley.

Also to the list Florida RG James Wilson should be included and with that dominate of an interior OL I wouldnt worry bout tough yards just because those backs are small doesnt mean they wont get those tough first downs. and Rainey is a Slot Back now not RB.
