2. Running Back

DeAndre Washington was easily Tech’s best weapon on offense and I personally believe he was underutilized all season. When he carried the ball 20 or more times he topped 100 yards, and when that happened Tech either won or lost on a last-second field goal. That only happened four times all year, and Washington ended up averaging 18 total touches per game.

True freshman Justin Stockton was a very pleasant surprise, but when he wasn’t ripping off 75-yard touchdowns he was either fumbling the ball or being tackled for a loss.

The one-two punch of Washington and Stockton could turn into the league’s best tandem if the later continues to work on pass protection, the offensive line continues to improve and if Kingsbury determines to run the ball.
