As the start of spring practice for Alabama approaches, we'll continue to breakdown each position. Today, we take a look at the Crimson Tide's stable of running backs.

Departed: Alvin Kamara (transfer), Dee Hart

Ready for spring: T.J. Yeldon, rising junior; Kenyan Drake, junior; Derrick Henry, sophomore; Altee Tenpenny, sophomore; Tyren Jones, redshirt freshman.

Coming in the fall: Bo Scarbrough

Outlook: Once again, Alabama is loaded at running back. A serious argument could be made that the Crimson Tide has one of the best backfields heading into the 2014 season.

In his first two seasons, Yeldon did something that Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson and Eddie Lacy didn't: rush for 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons.

Yeldon has amassed 2,343 yards and 26 touchdowns. He'll enter spring practice as the No. 1 back with many expecting him to be a three-and-done player if he posts more strong numbers.

When healthy, Yeldon is one of the best backs in the SEC and the country. But he has had his issues with the biggest knock being ball security. In 2013, his fumble to carry ratio (one fumble to every 41 touches) was the worst of any starting running back during Nick Saban's tenure.

Properly carrying the ball will likely be his biggest focus during offseason workouts.

If Yeldon isn't able to fix his fumbling problem, there's more than enough capable talent behind him as both Henry and Drake are chomping at his heels.

After not playing much early during his freshman campaign due to lack of knowledge of the blocking schemes, Henry exploded onto the scene during bowl practice. He surpassed Drake on the depth chart and had a dominant performance in the Sugar Bowl, racking up 161 total yards and two touchdowns on just nine touches in the Tide's loss to Oklahoma. If Henry continues to improve like he did during postseason practice, he could provide the Tide with the power rushing attack it lacked last season.
