College Football Draft Kit: Running Back
College Football Draft Kit: Running Back

This article is part of our College Football Draft Kit series.

The 2019 season is fast approaching, so we're rolling out our position-by-position previews to get you acclimated with the game's top players and help you dominate your drafts. Next up is running back, where Jonathan Taylor headlines a loaded crop. Some players, like Kylin Hill and Salvon Ahmed, have flashed immense upside and are now ready to take on starting roles for their respective teams. Others, like AJ Dillon, Spencer Brown, and Zach Moss, are established starters that offer bankable production. And then there are wildcards like LSU's John Emery, a true freshman with elite talent and a path to a featured role if things break the right way. Without further adieu, let's jump into this year's top running back landscape.

Editor's Note: The following article also appears in Rotowire's annual Fantasy Football Magazine, coming to newsstands in July of 2019.

1. Jonathan Taylor / Wisconsin / Junior

Through two seasons Taylor finds himself 103rd on the NCAA's all-time rushing list with 4,171 yards, and if he maintains his current pace, he could vault into the top five all-time by the end of this season. Taylor is the ideal fantasy asset at running back; he has the build to take on the heaviest workload in the nation and plays in an offense that is routinely among the most run-heavy. His track speed led to seven of his 16 touchdowns coming from outside the red zone, too. Taylor is the clear top fantasy running back.

2. Eno Benjamin / Arizona
