2013 Mountain West player rankings, No. 39: Colorado State RB Chris Nwoke

Ethan Miller

The 50 player countdown to the start of the 2013 college football season continues with No. 39.

The countdown of the 50 best Mountain West players continues with the No. 39 spot which belongs to Colorado St. Rams running back Chris Nwoke. Nwoke struggled last year with injuries and had a dip in production where he rushed for 570 yards and had two scores.

In 2011, Nwoke had 1,130 yards and nine scores, so if he can get back to that production he will be one of the better running backs in the league. Add in some help with Donnell Alexander to shoulder some of the carries and possibly help keep Nwoke from getting injured with a few less carries. Placing Nwoke at this position might just be based more on potential.
