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.
10. Ahmmon Richards, WR Miami Hurricanes
Profile: One of the nation’s most electric receivers as a freshman, Richards had somewhat of a lost season as a sophomore. He was hampered by a hamstring injury early in the year before being lost for good with a meniscus injury late in the year.
When on the field, Richards has a toolkit tailor-made for the modern game. He thrives on creating immediate separation and excels in a timing and rhythm attack. Despite lacking elite long speed, Richards accelerates out of his breaks and gets upfield in a hurry after the catch. His catching technique can be a bit sloppy; footballs can get into his body and create issues both with securing the catch and making plays happen after. There is not a large body of work with Richards, but his plus traits are immense and his warts are skills which can be refined.
2018 Outlook: Richards was given this ranking prior to departing Miami’s opener against LSU with a mysterious knee injury. While Mark Richt has expressed optimism with regards to time missed, injuries are starting to add up for Richards and durability question marks have been added to his resume. There’s still hope for a strong return and a near full season of production, though any extended time missed and his stock could plummet.
