Yeldon could top loaded RB class
Big weekend matchups loom for Yeldon, Gordon and Gurley
A lot will change between now and next spring, but the 2015 running back class could be the most talented and deep we've seen in the past five years, led by a very strong trio at the top: Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon, Georgia's Todd Gurley and Alabama's T.J. Yeldon.
Yeldon currently ranks as our No. 3 RB behind Gordon and Gurley. He might not have Gordon's home run-hitting ability or Gurley's power, but he may have the least amount of question marks -- which is why he has the potential to emerge as the top back in the class.
Let's examine how he can become the first running back off the board in next year's draft, Alabama's loaded RB corps and also what we'll be watching for from all three in their opening-week matchups this Saturday.
