The bowl games on New Year’s Day are what we’ve been waiting for, as the College Football Playoffs begin with two games loaded with NFL prospects and future dynasty assets.
Here’s a preview of the Rose and Sugar Bowl games featuring some top prospects.
Georgia vs. Oklahoma
This year’s Rose Bowl is loaded with NFL prospects and future dynasty assets.
Georgia is best known for their stable of running backs that includes Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, D’Andre Swift, Elijah Holyfield, and Brian Herrien. Chubb and Michel are the headliners for draft enthusiasts this year, as both seniors are declaring for the NFL Draft.
At 5’10”, 228, Nick Chubb is a powerful, downhill runner who has had to overcome a truly horrifying knee injury. Now the second all-time leading rusher in SEC history (behind Herschel Walker), Chubb is a workhorse who rushed for almost 1200 yards and 13 touchdowns this season. He doesn’t offer much in the passing game, but is an effective early-down horse that has immense upside if his athleticism returns as he progresses further from his 2015 injury. He’s my 1.04 for this year’s rookie class.
