Leonard Fournette. Nick Chubb. Jalen Hurd.
The list could go on and on. The SEC is littered with talented running backs every season and 2016 will be no different. That was evident from the 13 SEC running backs featured on the Doak Walker Award watch list on Wednesday.
Alabama’s Derrick Henry won the award last season, which is presented annually to the nation’s top running back.

Let’s take a look at the candidates:
- Nick Chubb, Georgia
