I cannot say that I agree here. The first time that I saw D'Andre Swift at UGA I thought that he held that title. And I've seen nothing to change my mind. Is Etienne great, yes, best in the country, I believe that belongs to Swift. Etienne lacks wiggle in my opinion. Sometimes, that is needed. But that being said, I absolutely loves Etienne's style and am glad that he is a tiger!

Here's a good article suggesting he is.

You could make an argument for others but I wouldn’t trade ETN for anyone. The way he runs hard and can break tackles along with being a threat to house it every time he touches it, I wouldn’t trade him.

No. He's maybe the best hand it off and run guy, but he does the other parts of being a RB (pass protection and pass catching) at a below average level for a P5 starter. Swift at UGA would be my guess as best RB. He's nearly as good of a runner as ETN, but a dramatically better pass catcher and is way better in pass pro.
