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.
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.
35. Hakeem Butler, WR Iowa State Cyclones
Profile: The departed Allen Lazard currently stands as the best receiver in Iowa State history. His standing may not last long with Hakeem Butler moving into a larger role this year. Both are giants on the perimeter, yet Butler is the far superior athlete with velvet smooth movements and sticky hands. Player development has been a strong suit of Matt Campbell during his time in Ames and Butler’s improvement has been rapid. Iowa State games are all of a sudden must-see television for devy fans.
2018 Outlook: Butler will need to prove he can handle the additional defensive attention. Lazard drew a lot of attention and allowed Butler to operate with a lot of freedom on the other side. Given his skill-set, odds are with Butler continuing to thrive even with coverage draped all over him.
