Tennessee Football: Butch Jones Says RB Jalen Hurd Is Up To 242 Pounds

The SEC has long been a league defined by its defenses, but over the last few seasons, the teams have had some monstrous running backs as well. Alabama's Derrick Henry is listed at 6-foot-3, 238 pounds, and runs like a freight train. Georgia sophomore Nick Chubb is a load to bring down at 5-foot-10, 220 pounds. It sounds like we can probably add Tennessee's Jalen Hurd to the list. Butch Jones discussed his tailback's size at today's SEC media day.

Hurd picked up 899 yards and five touchdowns on the ground in 2014, and added 221 yards and two touchdowns receiving out of the backfield. If Tennessee takes a leap this year, as many expect, Hurd should be a big reason why.
