Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports
Edward Aschoff with ESPN.com selected Georgia's Nick Chubb and LSU's Leonard Fournette as his top offensive skill players at the running back position, in this "Best of the SEC" article:

Leonard Fournette, So., LSU

Fournette was supposed to make an immediate, Michael Jordan-like impact for the Tigers last season, but needed some time to feel out the college game. In a why-haven't-you-won-the-Heisman-Trophy-now college football society, Fournette was viewed by some as a bust, despite being fresh out of high school. Still, a late-season surge and his menacing physique put Fournette firmly in this position. After shedding some weight and increasing his speed this offseason, there's no doubt the sophomore-to-be will shoot past his 1,034 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns from last year. Fournette averaged 98 yards in his final five games and blossomed into a fine player who should really take off in 2015.
No Tigers were mentioned in the WR/TE/All-Purpose category, but LSU WR Travin Dural was mentioned in the "More to watch" section.
