LSU 2022 Position Preview: Running Backs

For the first time in what I can remember the Fightin’ Tigers of LSU were pretty underwhelming running the football in 2021.

Now to be fair Ty Davis-Price did cross the 1,000 yard mark and set the LSU/SEC single game rushing record with 287 against Florida; that game alone vaulted TDP into a third round, top-100 overall selection by the 49ers in this past NFL Draft.

But take away Davis-Price’s historical game and his season is far less impressive. Nearly 30 percent of his rushing yards came in that one afternoon against the Gators, and if you exclude the Florida game you’re looking at 11 games for 717 yards which comes out to a mere 65 yards a game.
