New, 1 comment

It's that time of year, for us to attempt to predict who will be the best in the country at their respective positions. And like everybody else, we'll probably be wrong too.

Andy Lyons

Offense

QB: Teddy Bridgewater (Louisville)

RB: T.J. Yeldon (Alabama)

RB: Lache Seastrunk (Baylor)

TE: Austin Seferian-Jenkins

WR: Marqise Lee (USC)

WR: Sammy Watkins (Clemson)

C: B.J. Finney (Kansas State)

G: David Yankey (Stanford)

G: Cyril Richardson (Baylor)

T: Jake Mathews (Texas A&M)

T: Antonio Richardson (Tennessee)

Teddy Bridgewater is going to have a big year, as Louisville is a really good team that will play a really bad schedule. Some no brainers out of the Pac-12 in Lee and ASJ; if you don't have those guys on your first team you haven't been watching college football the past couple of years.

Defense

DE: Jadeveon Clowney (South Carolina)

DE: Jackson Jeffcoat (Texas)

DT: Will Sutton (Arizona State)

DT: Anthony Johnson (LSU)

LB: Max Bullough (Michigan State)

LB: Kyle Van Noy (BYU)

LB: C.J. Mosley (Alabama)

LB: Chris Borland (Wisconsin)

CB: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (Oregon)

CB: Bradley Roby (Ohio State)

S: Lamarcus Joyner (Florida State)

S: HaHa Clinton-Dix (Alabama)

This year is going to be a non-stop Clowney-fest, and with good reason. South Carolina will be appointment viewing. Loved watching Kyle Van Noy play last season; he anchored a really good defense and seemed to make a big play every series. I'm really glad that a guy named HaHa is a great player so we get to say his name a lot.

Special Teams

K: Chris Boswell (Rice)

P: Kyle Christy (Florida)

KR: Marcus Murphy (Missouri)

AP: DeAnthony Thomas (Oregon)

All purpose is the best sport for DAT. He won't get enough carries or catches to merit consideration at RB or WR, but between those touches and his special teams (if anyone is dumb enough to kick to him) he'll put up an impressive stat line.

Heisman

1: Teddy Bridgewater

2: Braxton Miller

3: Lache Seastrunk

When you have a guy like Bridewater who should throw for around 4000 yards and 35 TDs, and then put him on a team that should be in the hunt for the title, it's a pretty good chance that he'll at least be invited to New York. Plus he has the campaign going into the season and the personality and attitude that sportswriters gravitate toward.
