8. Thomas Tyner, Oregon Ducks
Avinash Kunnath: Tyner has become the best receiving running back on the Ducks squad, and he helped keep Oregon's offense going when other receivers went down during the season. Tyner has also proven he can be more than capable of being an everydown back as well, and is definitely one of the most versatile options who can take a leap next season.
Jack Follman: We got to see what Tyner looks like when healthy for seemingly the first time in ages in the Playoff games and it was impressive. He is going to lose a lot of carries to Freeman, but he is just as good as any other back on this list when he is healthy and getting a steady stream of carries.
7. Storm Woods, Oregon St. Beavers
Avinash Kunnath: He didn't get the football much with Sean Mannion under center, but expect it to tilt the other way this season. Woods averaged a pretty awesome 6 yards a carry last season and could be an underrated weapon this season.
6. Daniel Lasco, California Golden Bears
Jack Follman: Lasco had about the quietest 1,100 yard, 12 touchdown season in the history of the Pac-12. Seriously, has a Pac-12 guy ever put up numbers like that and still never been heard of by about 95 percent of casual Pac-12 fans. Regardless, He is another in the mold of those big, strong NFL style backs that always gets the most out of every carry, chips away yards and scores in the red zone.
5. D.J. Foster, Arizona St. Sun Devils
Avinash Kunnath: Foster struggled to be as dynamic as last season, but he will be the key leader for the Sun Devils having a good 2015 campaign. Foster is the best pass catcher out of this list too, making him a very versatile option for Todd Graham to dissect defenses.
