Better 2016: Christian McCaffrey or Dalvin Cook?
Friday June 24th, 2016

Perhaps no position in college football returns more star power this season than running back. Heisman Trophy runner up Christian McCaffrey is back as are LSU sensation Leonard Fournette, Florida State speedster Dalvin Cook and many others.

Alabama’s Derrick Henry snapped the drought for running backs in the Heisman race last year, and with so much potential at the position in 2016, this year’s top back could easily win the award again. The tricky part, however, is determining who that top back is.

SI’s Colin Becht and Chris Johnson make their choices in the video above and debate who’ll will be the best this season: McCaffrey or Cook?
