While prolific passing games are all the rage in football today, there's a renaissance brewing at the RB position in college football. In fact, this year's junior class at the position has the potential to be an all-timer.

Four of college football's six leaders in rushing yards last fall return for their junior seasons: Dalvin Cook (Florida State), Leonard Fournette (LSU), Royce Freeman (Oregon) and Christian McCaffrey (Stanford). Talented toters like Nick Chubb (Georgia), Wayne Gallman (Clemson), Elijah Hood (North Carolina), Jalen Hurd (Tennessee), Marlon Mack (USF) and Samaje Perine (Oklahoma) will also be testing defenses all over the country.

After reviewing the top running back classes in NFL draft history, it's not difficult to see this year's group of juniors one day jockeying for position in the pantheon. Here's my ranking of the top five RB draft classes of all-time.

The 5th best RB in the draft these days would be lucky to go in the 4th.

If he was projected to go in the 4th, I might tell him to declare.  

Right because for RB's it is tricky?  They have only so many years in the NFL

He'll stay all four years and enjoy every minute of the college game.  The difference between M2 and Hall is house speed.  M2 will not be caught from behind.  He's fun to watch when he's in the open field and hits the next gear.

The OL needs to step up in a BIG way or he will be just another also ran.

Go Bulls!

Hell, he's fun to watch when there's actually defenders in the neighborhood and he pulls away.
