Auburn named sophomore Roc Thomas the school's starting RB.
The position has recently produced huge rushing totals, with Tre Mason and Cameron Artis-Payne shining under Gus Malzahn. Quarterback Nick Marshall is gone, but there seems to be plenty of optimism around Jeremy Johnson. In limited action, Thomas rushed for 214 yards and two touchdowns on 43 carries last year. Auburn utilizes plenty of motion and misdirection, which plays in the runners' favor. Sep 2 - 9:38 AM

Racean Thomas, the No. 34 overall player in the 2014 recruiting class according to the ESPN 300, committed to Auburn earlier this month.

The running back nicknamed "Roc" chose the Tigers over a host of suitors that included Florida, Alabama, Florida State, LSU, Georgia and Clemson. "I feel like I can come out of the backfield and do a lot of great things in this offense," Thomas said. "I have good hands, good speed and good balance. They can send me on routes and I can catch the ball." Thomas rushed for 1,768 yards and 24 touchdowns last season as a high school junior in Oxford, Ala. Thomas is an explosive power back with polished receiving skills. He doesn't possess blazing speed or great elusiveness, but profiles as an every-down back in the SEC.
