Georgia football: 10 Bulldogs who defined Running Back U

Georgia isn't the only college football program that has a case to be RBU, but these 10 Bulldogs might be better than any 10 at any other school.

RBU. 527. NFL: 2015-2020. Todd Gurley. 2. player. . . Todd Gurley. Georgia: 2012-14

Georgia rushing yards: Georgia rushing touchdowns: 36

NFL rushing yards: 6,082 NFL rushing touchdowns: 67

Speaking of bad knees, Todd Gurley checks in at No. 2 on the RBU list. Gurley is fourth all-time in rushing yards behind Walker and Chubb, but his ridiculous NFL career earned him the No. 2 spot.

Gurley was solid at Georgia, but only cracked 1,000 yards once, as a freshman in 2012. For his career, he averaged 6.4 yards per carry, which is better than Chubb's 6.3, but with 248 fewer carries.

Gurley was the No. 10 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft after only playing six games in his final year in college. The Rams were certainly happy with the pick because Gurley won the 2015 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

His career reached another stratosphere when Sean McVay arrived in 2017. Gurley racked up 2,093 scrimmage yards that season and was the league's Offensive Player of the Year. The Rams lost in the Super Bowl the next season and Gurley was an All-Pro for the second time in 2018.

For a short stretch in LA, Gurley was the most feared offensive player in the entire NFL. It didn't last long because of his knees, but he may be the most memorable Georgia running back in the NFL for those not old enough to have seen Herschel Walker play for the Cowboys.
