RUNNING BACKS
Saquan Barkley of Penn State is the all-around back all teams crave.  He has NFL teams drooling for 2018. I also believe that Derrius Guice of LSU  is almost as good as Leonard Fournette, he may have a better all-around game. Royce Freeman comes back to Oregon to show his skills at RB. Bo Scarborough is a big back with loads of talent at Alabama, but he is coming off a broken leg in the National Championship game. Nick Chubb is another Georgia RB that is also coming off some injuries. Watch for Ronald Jones II from USC, with Sam Darnold getting all he attention this guy can run.  The BIG 10 is loaded with quality RB and has Northwestern's Justin Jackson and Iowa's Akrum Wadley both back to wreak havoc o the field.  Wadley is more of a scat back and can be a satellite player.

The 2018 Draft Season is not far off, but you need to start now to get ready for that 2018 College Football Season.  Here is a preliminary look at the talent.  Much will change until the Draft in 2018. 
QUARTERBACKS
This QB Class looks loaded going into the 2018 Collegiate season.  With 7-8 QB all possible 1st Round picks, some will fall and others will rise.  The pack is lead by Sam Darnold of USC.  Who needs to just prove hat 2016 was no fluke and he may just go #1 in April.  Josh Allen of Wyoming is the QB with the most potential upside.  He just needs to get more accurate to get into the top 5. At 6'5" and 230 lbs, he is a prototype NFL QB, but his compl % is at 56%. Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph gets critizized as a spread system QB.  I think he is better prepared than most spread QB's. UCLA's Josh Rosen is coming off shoulder surgery and has some gunslinger in him and feels because he is the QB he has some entitlement.  But Josh Rosen has all he tools for the NFL.  Luke Falk of Washington State is the QB with the most experience the dude has thrown the pigskin 1530 times in college already!  Quinton Flowers is electrifying and can carry South Florida to a ball with his legs and arm.  Lamar Jackson from Louiville is he Heisman Trophy winner and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield has issues.
