Dalyn Dawkins might not even be the primary back for the Rams at running back this year

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The 2016 version of the Mountain West Connection top 50 football players countdown is finally here and the 46th player is Colorado State running back Dayln Dawkins.

The Colorado State running back situation could have a pair of backs with Dawkins sharing time with Izzy Matthews. Dawkins had a decent season last year with 867 yards and a pair of touchdowns as he split time with Jasen Oden.

Phil Steele did rank Dawkns on his All-Mountain West third team.

Here are the staff picks and composite rankings.
