It is time for the annual installment of the Devy 100, the third-most ballyhooed set of devy rankings completed within the greater Southwest Minneapolis area. As always, whittling this down to a mere one hundred was no simple task. If there is anybody you believe was omitted erroneously, feel free to pop in the comments and express your displeasure. If you missed any of the previous versions, just click on them below. The Devy 100 is designed for the community of DLF to be as informed as possible about all the college prospects and future dynasty stars whether they play in devy leagues or not. Remember, all this information becomes archived in our library of content and goes into our annual Rookie Draft Guide for you to review when each of these players becomes eligible for traditional rookie drafts.
Now it’s time for 75-71.
- Tyrell Shavers, WR Alabama Crimson Tide
Profile: Alabama had three true freshman receivers make notable contributions during the 2017 season, yet there are many who feel the best of the Tide’s loaded 2017 recruiting receiver class has yet to record a catch. A receiver who stands six and a half feet tall and blazes a 4.38 forty is bound to get his own hype train, though the train was temporarily stationed after a redshirt season in Tuscaloosa. Upside oozes from Shaver’s pores and he provides a much different dynamic from his fellow receiving brethren for Nick Saban’s bunch. Already possessing tools for physical dominance, Shavers deserves attention despite a potentially delayed payoff.
2018 Outlook: Gone is alpha dog Calvin Ridley, yet the aforementioned depth of the 2017 class leaves the receiver room well-stocked with talent. If the Tide turn to Tua Tagovailoa, the passing game may open up. If it is Jalen Hurts, is likely the same limited passing offense with a committee replacing the numbers of Ridley. Perhaps most importantly, we will get a glimpse of the strides Shavers has made both in regards to his physical composition as well as his route running.
