Many thought that Jackson would make himself available for the 2017 NFL Draft. But Jackson is staying put at Northwestern, where he aims to rush for over 1,000 yards for a fourth straight season.

2. A Running Back’s Best Friend: Braden Smith

At 6-foot-6 and 300 pounds, Braden Smith is a can’t-miss force on the offensive line for the Auburn Tigers. Flourishing at both the tackle and guard spots, Smith was crucial in providing Auburn running backs with the blocks they needed to lead the SEC with an average of 271.3 rushing yards per game.
