After exploding onto the scene in 2015, RB Justin Stockton took a HUGE step back after a disappointing 2016 campaign. He began the year as the obvious starter but quickly faded down the stretch. Then came Demarcus Felton and Da’Leon Ward, who both had their chance to shine but neither really separated themselves from the bunch. Ward finished the season as the leading rusher for this group but that’s not saying a whole lot considering the lack of production from all three guys. Justin Stockton has been running with the first team all throughout spring practice and unless Ward or Felton turn some heads, it is Stockton’s job to lose. Much of the lack of productivity could be pointed at the offensive line but someone in this group will have to rely on their hands to get more involved in the offense.
