A little about my top 10

Cade Klubnik is primed for a great season with a new offensive coordinator and pantry full of weapons at his disposal. I'm lower than most on Drew Allar and it's more of the system that's around him, strong defense with a great 1-2 punch in the running game, Allar won't be in position to need to do a lot, and his receiving room isn't the greatest. With 4 Freshman in the top 10, it is more aggressive than most, but this bunch has a chance to be something special. 

 

 

RISERS

My riser for this year is Senior KJ Jefferson. He has all the tools the NFL will love. Great arm, reads the field well, protects the football and is a power rusher. At 6'3" 245lbs, he's someone I expect to rise at next year's NFL draft combine. My riser for next year, that I want to mention is Garrett Nussmeier out of LSU. He will be the starter next year in a 2025 draft class that is currently lacking a standout.

 

 

FALLERS

Bo Nix, can't fault his production last year in a new offense at Oregon but, for me I would sell as a devy asset. He's in a quarterback friendly system that makes his reads easy. Great CFF production, but a sell as a Devy asset.

 

FRESHMAN

Other Freshman to make note of besides the aforementioned top 4, we have Jackson Arnold who should take over next season at Oklahoma, Aidan Chiles out of Oregon State, Austin Novosad out of Oregon should be given the keys to the car next season and one sleeper to look at, Avery Johnson out of Kansas State is their highest rated recruit in recent memory. He won't be over recruited and will have every opportunity to flourish.
