Ranking college football's top 10 RBs for 2020

As a part of our partnership with ESPN, this story was originally published on ESPN+ and can be viewed in its entirety here with your ESPN+ subscription – Ranking college football's top 10 RBs for 2020

We recently ranked college football's top 10 returning quarterbacks for 2020, and now it's time to turn our attention to the backfield.

A handful of running backs recently surprised us by announcing their intent to return to college football as opposed to declaring for the 2020 NFL draft, but that, in turn, has formed a loaded group at the position as we look toward the upcoming college season. Using a combination of PFF grades and PFF's wins above average (WAA) metric, we present to you the top 10 running backs returning to college football in 2020, as well as a sleeper to watch out for.
