In a short version of Mike’s mind, which I hope to do more often, here are some random thoughts that have recently entered my mind regarding college football including the NIL.
Class of 2023 rankings: Competitors 100
RIVALS CAMP . series: Info/coverage for the 2021 Camp Series
1. RATTLER No. 1
Let’s be clear, the number one player for name, photo, and similarity is Oklahoma QB Spencer Rattler Since he’s on a program that has produced the NFL’s #1 draft picks and Heisman Award winners in his position at Baker Mayfield And the Keeler Murray. Rattler won’t get rich from NIL because he’s just getting started but he tops my list as the most marketable player out there.
2. Skill players join the marketing world
Skill position players are all the rage in college football and beyond, so scoring goals (or defending against them) will always be appreciated. Here 2-10 guys…
3. Where are the Alabama players?
You may notice that there was no Alabama Players on my top 10 list, but we all know that’s not going to last. back Christian Harris, hasty edge Will Anderson, quarterback Bryce Young, receiver John Michi IIIrunning back Brian Robinsonoffensive lineي Evan Neal And many others should benefit in the end. In fact, I see about 20 future first-round picks on the Alabama roster from beginner to senior as usual.
4. You will not be the stars of the past
Who would be some of the most marketable players of the past 20 years or so in college football if NIL were alive at that time? Here is my list…
5. Consider the NFL draft
remember Evan Neal As a recruit? Do you remember him when he was young when he carried a lot of weight and then reduced his first season weight to around 360 pounds and ended up as the 8th National and No. 1 offensive tackle? Well, I’m here to tell you that despite his high ranking, I didn’t expect this to come: Neal is now the best potential offensive line I’ve seen in the NFL draft since Orlando Base He returned to first place overall in 1997.
Everyone likes to throw up the term generational talent and I hate that. Trevor Lawrence Generation talent. Chase Young not because we have Nick BossaAnd the Joey Bossa Others are in the same position. But Neal, he could be a talent for generations because he has the very rare sport of a 6-foot-7 and 360-pounder and is a tireless worker in the weight room. His chest and split jumps are already a legend in Alabama and he shows that strength in his lower body with impossible agility and agility.
He’s better at this point than the first-round tackles in Alabama dj flocker, Jonah Williams Jedrick Wells And the Alex Leatherwood I am in front of him Benny Sewell Which was rated as the generational talent last year. Neil has a chance, with another great season and a combined practice that would amaze everyone, to be a top five pick and could push for first place overall, a rarity for an offensive business. He is eccentric.
