The 2016 college football season is less than two months away, and the anticipation is building for what should be a fun year highlighted by very talented draft-eligible players.
Pro Football Focus published their list of the nation’s top 101 players, and while they conditioned the ranking as not being an NFL draft projection, the names that appear at the top of the list are some of the 2017 NFL draft’s top prospects.
Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey earned PFF’s top billing and is their favorite to win the Heisman Trophy. It’s not all that shocking considering the astonishing performances he put on display almost every week in 2015. McCaffrey isn’t the top running back prospect for the NFL draft at this point in early stages of draft season, but that could change with another astronomical season and strong scouting combine performance.
