CFB 24 43 Top SEC running backs 11398202 FOX Sports South rates SEC running backs FOX+Sports+South+rates+SEC+running+backs CFB

SEC traditionalists will be heartened in 2010. After spending several years watching their rough-and-tumble league dominated by, of all things, quarterbacks, the ball carriers are set to regain their rightful place atop the pecking order. FOX Sports South's Josh Kendall identifies the top 10 in the conference.

CFB 24 43 Top SEC running backs 11398099 Mark Ingram, Alabama Mark+Ingram%2C+Alabama+ CFB

The reigning Heisman Trophy winner does everything well. He's a powerful slasher who averaged at least 5.3 yards per carry in all but three games a year ago. Las Vegas has made Ingram the preseason favorite to win another Heisman, and the only reason he's not a heavier favorite is the No. 2 name on this list.

CFB 24 43 Top SEC running backs 11398221 Trent Richardson, Alabama Trent+Richardson%2C+Alabama CFB

Imagine if Mark Ingram were an inch taller and a step faster. Crimson Tide fans don't have to imagine it. All they have to do is look at the No. 2 back on the depth chart. It's not likely Richardson will replace Ingram as the starter this year, but it's not impossible either.

CFB 24 43 Top SEC running backs 11398201 Warren Norman, Vanderbilt Warren+Norman%2C+Vanderbilt CFB

Haven't heard of Norman? Shame on you. The third-leading returning rusher in the SEC was the league's freshman of the year last season after breaking Herschel Walker's record for all-purpose yards by a freshman in a season with 1,941. He was the first freshman to lead the SEC in all-purpose yardage (161.8 yards per game) since Walker did it in 1980.

CFB 24 43 Top SEC running backs 11398181 Washaun Ealey, Georgia Washaun+Ealey%2C+Georgia+ CFB

It may be a stretch to put Ealey this high on the list. Is he the back who didn't get a single carry in the first four games of the year? Or is he the back who gained 183 yards on 20 carries in the regular-season finale against Georgia Tech? If he runs with the same passion he had against the Yellow Jackets, he will be a star for the Bulldogs.

CFB 24 43 Top SEC running backs 11398182 Derrick Locke, Kentucky Derrick+Locke%2C+Kentucky CFB

Among returning backs in the SEC, only Alabama's Mark Ingram rushed for more yards than Locke, who averaged 75.6 yards per game in his first season coming back from a season-ending knee injury in 2008. His speed had not fully returned last year. If it does this season, he’ll be even more dangerous.

CFB 24 43 Top SEC running backs 11398185 Caleb King, Georgia Caleb+King%2C+Georgia CFB

What to make of King? Often-injured and occasionally unmotivated, he still finished ninth in the SEC in rushing last year. The good news for Bulldog fans is he may have discovered a nose for the end zone late last year. King rushed for six touchdowns in the final four games.

CFB 24 43 Top SEC running backs 11398183 Jeff Demps, Florida Jeff+Demps%2C+Florida+ CFB

Yes, Florida has running backs. It has been easy to forget that with Tim Tebow doing most everything the last three seasons. In Demps, the Gators have a runner who posted a sub-10.0 in the 100-meter dash this track season. He's coming back from a broken arm suffered in the bowl game, but there's nothing wrong with his legs.

CFB 24 43 Top SEC running backs 11398203 Onterio McCalebb, Auburn Onterio+McCalebb%2C+Auburn CFB

This is where the list gets more speculative. McCalebb, one of the nation's top recruits two years ago, gained more than 100 yards in each of the Tigers' first two games before hitting a string of injuries. By the time McCalebb regained his strength, Ben Tate had taken hold of the starting job.

CFB 24 43 Top SEC running backs 11398222 Broderick Green, Arkansas Broderick+Green%2C+Arkansas CFB

Green was a Parade All-American coming out of Pulaski High School in Arkansas when he signed with USC. After a homesick first season in L.A., he came back home. Green is an NFL-type back with his size and pass protection skills, and Bobby Petrino runs a pro-style offense that's a perfect fit.

CFB 24 43 Top SEC running backs 11398184 Marcus Lattimore, South Carolina Marcus+Lattimore%2C+South+Carolina CFB

Nothing to base this one on but hope, but Gamecock fans have tons of hope where Lattimore is concerned. He was Scout.com's No. 1 running back in the country last year and spurned dozens of other top schools to stay at home and play. He could be a star under Steve Spurrier, who will use him to carry the ball and catch it out of the backfield.
