WarGhost's CFB Players to Watch 2016-17

Here are my top 3 CFB players to watch this season.

 

1) Leonard Fournette, LSU, RB

I love Leonard. I have since I first saw his High School Highlight Reel. The kid is something special. He had an amazing year last season. I believe this year he will do even better. Yes, better. How could he be better than he is? I don't know, but watch out. Don't be surprised if he breaks Barry Sanders record of 2628 rushing yards and breaks 30 touchdowns. This kid may have a high floor, but I don't think he's even come close to his ceiling yet.

 

2) Kavontae Turpin, TCU, WR/KR/HB

Yes, I have him labelled as a HB as well. You may be thinking "He's to small", but just look at LA Rams WR/RB Tavon Austin. He's only a tad bit bigger, yet he torches defenses from the backfield. I envision Turpin as a smaller, more elusive Austin. This kid is dangerous with the ball. Now that he's out from behind the shadow of Josh Doctson. He will be a top target on the team and will end up torching everyone. EVERYONE....

 

3) Deshaun Watson, Clemson, QB

How can you create a list like this and leave out the electric Watson. He may not get better this year, but that's only because it's pretty hard to do better than he did last season. The kid can throw dots and run like a track star. He gets it done no matter how it has to happen. I'm going to put the Heisman trophy between these Fournette and Watson at the moment. It may change later in the year, but these are consistently the top two options on EVERYONE'S Heisman Watch boards. 

 

Needless to say, I'm excited to watch this season of CFB!!! Let me know who you like in the comments. Thanks for the read!!

Watson is a great kid, I realize I'm late to this but McCaffrey and Lamar Jackson look to be Heisman hopefuls as well.

    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. The number might be off 1 here or there (due to coaching changes, I might counted a game here or there played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active). That's not a bad record.   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning, then 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I wish if Pagano fails to prove himself and will be fired after 2017, then there will be at least one available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.   
    •   And, wittness such a weird offseason. Giving up a fortune for Mahomes, letting Poe (+Howard) go then sign Bennie Logan for similar cash? Let Charles, Knile Davis go then sign C.J. Spiller? And finally, let Maclin go and not even try to do something with the WR depth. (There was Decker available for example....)   These remind me a bit of what happened in Philly when Chip Kelly took full control. He let McCoy go then signed Murray and Matthews to huge contracts, etc. Weird moves.   Reid is not Kelly, the old man is proven and good. But still.... something doesn't feel right for me there.
    • Even though this is Camp weight [nothing to get riled over] there are a few players that intrigued me weight wise. Hooker, Woods(23lbs is alot of weight), just to name a few
    •   Yes,   I noticed that too.      And no, he's not.     He even a dmitted as much in a recent interview.   Says he lost 15+ and has gained back 10-12.    Thinks he'll be good to go for the start of the season,   but there are so many questions left unanswered.....
