COVID-19 has everyone itching right now. People want to watch sports. It is definitely weird watching sporting events without fans (especially wrestling), but the NFL will be here soon. College football is already here.
Tonight, Central Arkansas will play UAB, I mean football is here! So I wanted to share the top 10 best football players in college to me. Obviously, I think I should share this because I am just like you and I am itching for the game. So let’s look at my top 10 list!
1.) Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson – You had to know that was the answer right? Good! I mean let’s face it the kid is an animal. I love Trevor Lawrence and I feel he is easily the top prospect. I would not be surprised if teams sucked on purpose in the NFL to land him in the 2021 NFL Draft.
2.) Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon – I am a huge fan of Sewell. As of right now he will not be playing this fall, but he is easily the top offensive tackle prospect in the NFL Draft. Many teams need help on their line and I feel he is a future Pro Bowler at the position.
3.) Derek Stingley Jr., CB, LSU – The sophomore is going to be the top prospect in the 2022 NFL Draft. Stingley is a beast, and he is the best cornerback on LSU’s roster and he was just a freshman last year. He ranked second in passes defended last year, you better stop throwing at him.
4.) Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State – I feel Trey Lance is a top prospect. I am not bias because I love small schoolers but I know Lance production has been impressive. He has not thrown an interception in his entire career. Now, that may just be one season, but it is freaking hard to do. He did it with easy and led his team to the Championship and won. PS, he has never lost in his career either.
5.) Gregory Rousseau, DE, Miami – Greg has opted out already this year, but he is the best pass rusher in this draft. He was the ACC Defensive rookie of the year last year and he is just a Sophomore but a redshirt so he will be able to enter the NFL Draft. He has 15.5 sacks in one year with 19.5 tackles for loss. The kid is special.
Several of my top ten have already opted out of the 2020 season
6.) Ja’Marr Chase, WR, LSU – He too recently opted out, but he is the best wide out in the country. Most star wide outs end up going in the second half of the top ten, but I would not be shocked if he ended up going in the top 5. Chase is a special talent who tore up the SEC.
7.) Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State – Parsons too opted out but he finished last year with 109 tackles. He was a five star recruit out of high school and has blossomed into one of the best linebackers in the country. He has speed and size that separate him from the rest of the linebackers in the draft.
8.) Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State – I think Wade would have been a top 10 pick in last year’s draft. Instead he decided to return to school to have the school postponed. It won’t matter because the kid has his head on his shoulders. He is a true shutdown corner and those are hard to find at the next level.
9.) Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State – Fields is a special talent with a huge arm. He loves to squeeze the ball into tight windows. I think teams are going to fall in love with him. He reminds me a lot of Josh Allen and Cam Newton. Both are bigger and physical quarterbacks. Fields will need to work on his touch but he will hear his name called early in the 2021 NFL Draft.
10.) Jaylen Twyman, DL, Pittsburgh – Many people do not have this kid in their top 20 list, but this kid is too damn talented. I know why he opted out and I am not mad at him. Many have Marvin Wilson rated higher than him, but I think Twyman the Washington D.C. native jumps him!
