    2007 CFN Preseason First Team All-Americans
    Mike Hart, Sr. Michigan
    If it's possible to run for 3,967 career yards, 27 touchdowns, and catch 59 passes for 516 yards and two scores for Michigan and still be underrated, Hart has done it. Coming off a sensational 1,562-yard, 14 touchdown season as the steady, consistent force in a BCS run, he tore off nine 100-yard games, with three more with 91 yards or more, before getting shut down by USC. Even though he only ran for 47 yards against the Trojans, he scored twice. Not a home run hitter, the 5-9, 196-pound veteran is a tough between-the-tackles runner who always cranks out positive yards. With 19 career games with 100 yards or more, he's been one of the nation's best running backs, when healthy. No national title caliber team will rely more on one running back than Michigan will, and Hart needs to stay in one piece.

    Darren McFadden, Jr. Arkansas
    McFadden is one of the nation's best players and a near-certain top 15 draft pick when, not if, he leaves after this year. He has the power at 6-2 and 215 pounds, and he's a bolt of lightning when he gets into the open field with 1,647 yards and 14 touchdowns while catching 11 passes for 149 yards and a score. In the "Wildcat" package, he'll even spend time lined up at quarterback, where he completed seven of nine passes for 69 yards and three touchdowns with an interception. One of the leading Heisman candidates will be used in every way possible to get the ball in his hands

    2007 CFN Preseason Second Team All-Americans

    P.J. Hill, Soph. Wisconsin
    The only question mark with Hill will be whether or not he can stay healthy. He missed all of 2005 with a broken leg, struggled through neck injury last year, and missed all of spring ball getting his shoulder right. While he's not gong to bust off many huge runs, he'll use his 222 pounds to power over and through everyone. He was a load last year rushing for 1,569 yards and 15 touchdowns, and he even was a decent receiver finishing fifth on the team with 18 catches for 197 yards and a touchdown, but he wasn't the same over the second half of the season after getting dinged up, and he was effectively shut down by Michigan and Arkansas.

    Steve Slaton, Jr. West Virginia
    Coupled with QB Pat White, Slaton gives West Virginia the most dynamic backfield tandem in America. A consensus All-American and Heisman finalist a year ago, he’s a scoring machine with the jets to go the distance whenever he gets into space. Slaton was second nationally with 162 all-purpose yards a game in 2006 and added pass-catcher to his repertoire, pulling in 27 receptions for 360 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He had off-season surgery on his right wrist, but will be fine by the start of the season.

    I'm sorry but Mike Hart is so overrated. I can't wait till he gets in the NFL and everyone is bigger and faster. He won't be able to hide behind that Michigan offensive line anymore...

    Yeah now that I think about it he is. It's not that he's a bad running back... he's pretty good... but when he gets to the NFL he'll just be an "ok" guy.
