Mississippi State running back Josh Robinson may be moving into his first year as a starter for the Bulldogs, but he has done enough in his career to be placed on the Doak Walker Award watchlist, which was announced Thursday.

The award recognizes the nation's premiere running back for accomplishments on the field, achievement in the classroom, and citizenship in the community.

The 5' 9", 215 pound junior finished the 2013 season with 78 carries for 459 yards, good for an average of 5.9 yards per carry.  Robinson also found the end zone three times on the ground. He also hauled in 12 catches for 115 yards.

  • Tra Carson, Texas A&M
  • Alex Collins, Arkansas
  • Mike Davis, South Carolina
  • Todd Gurley, Georgia
  • Derrick Henry, Alabama
  • Terrence Magee, LSU
