Which teams will have the best position units this season? Well, West Virginia loaded in the backfield. USC sports an impressive group of linebackers. Take a look below to get the breakdowns on the best position units in the nation.
Arkansas (Darren McFadden and Felix Jones) and Clemson (James Davis and C.J. Spiller) have the top running back tandems in the country, but neither made this list because of severe deficiencies at the quarterback position. West Virginia, on the other hand, boasts a premier starter at quarterback (Pat White), running back (Steve Slaton) and fullback (Owen Schmitt). The trio rushed for 3,314 yards and 41 touchdowns last season, and White threw for 1,655 more yards and 13 more scores.
Which schools boast the top units in 2007? Not surprisingly, preseason favorite USC boasts talent on both sides of the ball.
