Spring ball has wrapped up, and soon enough summer practices will begin at campuses across America. College football offers us plenty of surprises, whether it is an unexpected upset, a team that comes out of nowhere to have rousing success, or a player who suddenly breaks out and turns into one of the best in the nation.
Using the preliminary S&P+ rankings from SB Nation’s Bill Connelly as a guide, I’ll be going through each FBS team and highlighting some players to watch for during the upcoming season. Some are draft eligible, while others are names for devy owners to remember.
In this edition, I’ll look at players from a few teams that fell outside the top 100, but are still worth keeping an eye on even if their teams aren’t very good.
