Running back Isaiah Crowell stands a good chance of immediately elevating Georgia's running game. The Bulldogs finished 73rd in the running game last season and Crowell brings the quickness, speed and power to Mark Richt's club has been lacking since the departure of Knowshon Moreno.
Crowell's low-to-the-ground running style makes him very difficult to bring down. He's excellent in traffic or in space and capable of getting what looks like impossible yards. A true playmaker who also catches well out of the backfield, Crowell has the burst to get though seams quickly and explodes out of cuts to the left or the right with equal power.
He's the rare back who combines instincts, vision and balance with amazing raw physical ability and a desire to finish off every run strong. Look for Crowell to make an immediate mark in Athens. Herschel Walker anyone? - Allen Wallace

Johnson showed how dominant he can be at the Under Armour Game and the fact that he is already enrolled at LSU combined with the Tigers' need at defensive tackle spells early playing time for the nation's top D-tackle. - Sonny Shipp

I've said it before but it's worth repeating, Thomas is a legit 5-Star talent at four positions: running back, receiver, corner, and safety. His size makes him project best as a cornerback, but with his talent, it will be nearly impossible to keep him off the field, even if it's spelling Heisman trophy contender LaMichael James at running back. He could help form the nation's best backfield with James, the best corner tandem with All-American Cliff Harris, or best return tandem with Harris. The Ducks have All-Americans at both of Thomas' best positions, but Thomas is too good to keep off the field.
