Following up -- creating LSU's all-time team for EA's NCAA football franchise: running backs


Hey guys. A while back I posted about my attempt to create an all-time LSU team. Here is that post:

http://www.andthevalleyshook.com/2011/7/21/2286804/all-time-lsu-team-for-ncaa-football-12-requesting-assistance

Well anyway, after getting quite a bit done on that team I slacked off and have not worked on it at all. I wanted to get back to work on it, and would really appreciate some help in coming up with several players AND their playing styles. But instead of asking for every player who is an all-time great I thought that I would go position-by-position where I still need to add players. I'd like to make a series of fanposts until I get this taken care of.

So I will start by asking for help with the offensive backfield. So far I have three running backs for the all-time: Kevin Faulk as a junior (90 overall), Jacob Hester as a senior (89 overall), and Bill Cannon as a senior (95 overall).

I'd love to get your feedback on who should fill out the balance of this backfield. I'd also really appreciate some thoughts on the tendencies of these players. E.g., are they tough but slow? Great catching passes out of the backfield? Excellent in pass protection? I would love opinions on not only who these players should be, but what they play like.

I need three more backs, at least one of whom should be a fullback. I am wanting the best player-year (no Billy Cannon's junior year, for example). Help is very much appreciated.
