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.
30. Damien Harris, RB Alabama Crimson Tide
Profile: Always a productive back for the Crimson Tide, Damien Harris took his game to a new level in 2017. His increased explosion was noticeable and he showed maturation as a runner, gaining tough yards as opposed to attempting to dance for a bigger gain. Harris excels as someone who can work in harmony with his blockers and explode when given a crease. For two years, I viewed Harris as somebody whose value was buoyed by the program he was a part of as well as the fact he was the top-rated running back in a watered-down class. But he has made notable gains each year. He should be in the day two mix come 2019.
2018 Outlook: Alabama is stacked at running back. Alert the media. Harris returns as Nick Saban’s lead runner, though he will have to contend with a healthier Josh Jacobs as well as an ascending Najee Harris. The elder Harris is the favorite to lead this backfield in touches but he is unlikely to have a workhorse profile in 2018.
