If Barlow gets the starting job outright, he'd be a top-10 back, and the best of the bunch. The only way that's going to happen though is if Hearst gets injured. Hearst is a GREAT pass-blocking back, which is the main reason why he starts. I think he's also a better receiver than Barlow.
Amos will probably be a worthy starter next year and Hambrick could be a decent #2 back. I'm not sold on Canidate. Would anyone be THAT surprised if one of their other backs took over the starting job at some point (not even good enough to back-up Marshall).
