Finally. After the long offseason, college football is right around the corner! With the release of the AP Top 25, we’re going to look at the top 5 team’s best and worst position groups.
Best: Offensive Line
While tight end might be the popular pick, it’s the offensive line that get’s the crown. Coming into this season, Georgia’s offensive line is looking to be amongst the best if not THE best in the country. They have a deep O-Line room that is looking to have four if not more members selected in the 2024 NFL draft, being lead by standouts Amarius Mims and Sedrick Van Pran.
Worst: Running Back
Even RBU can have their down years. Unfortunately the injury bug has caught up with Georgia as Kendall Milton and Daijun Edwards have both been dealing with some injuries. Sophomore back Branson Robinson has also been dealing with his fair share of injury. Next man up will be the tale for the Georgia running back room this upcoming season.
Best: Running Back
Oh my! What a surprise! I know, I know. You’d never expect a running back room with two 1,000 yard rushers to be a schools best position group. The thing that makes Michigan’s running back room so special is non only that they have two of the best running backs in the Big 10 in Blake Corum and Donovan Edwards, but also Tavierre Dunlap who is a 6 foot 200 pound freight train who can carry the load if (God forbid) Corum or Edwards get hurt.
Worst: Wide Receiver
This isn’t to say that Michigan has a BAD wide receiver room, but they are certainly the most unproven. Cornelius Johnson looks to have a big season this year, but only time will tell from such an inexperience Michigan wide receiver room.
3. Ohio State
Best: Wide Receiver
Even though the defensive line did have it’s case to be the best, this might be just as much of a no brained as the Michigan running back room. Not only are the Buckeyes equipped with one of the best wide receivers in CFB HISTORY in Marvin Harrison JR., but to also add guys like Emeka Egbuka and Xavier Johnson to that mix just makes this wide receiver room straight up unfair. The second unit might be the second best starting wide receiver room in the entire Big 10.
Worst: Offensive Line
Reports out of training camp have not been kind to the Buckeyes as it relates to the O-Line room. Shockingly, losing your two starting tackles to the NFL draft really does lessen the experience in the O-Line room, and that is being felt now more than ever for Ohio State. Donovan Jackson will look to step up coming into this year, but depth and health will be a huge concern for the Bucks offensive line this year as it looks to be a paper thin group.
Best: Running Back
This was a tough selection, because it sounds like Saban is also showing some confidence in the linebackers and defensive tackle rooms, but I decided to go with the running backs going into this year. It’s crazy to say that a position group that lost it’s leader to the NFL draft is looking to be as deep as it has been in years, but that’s where we are with the Bama running back room. Senior Jase McClellan is in for a BIG year, and with the kind of depth that this room has, injury shouldn’t be a concern for the Crimson Tide.
With a new offensive coordinator in Tommy Rees and unknown quarterback play from the entire room, this will be a very interesting year for Alabama football. No quarterback has seemed to separate himself in the QB room so far in camp, and with the season quickly approaching, the time is now to make that decision. Jalen Milroe and Ty Simpson are names that I would keep an eye out on as we draw closer to the end of training camp.
Though he had a up and down season last year, starting quarterback Jayden Daniels is looking like he’s taken the necessary steps to be in the Heisman conversation this year. I’m hearing very good things out of camp for Daniels and it sounds like he has put in the work throughout the summer to be ready for the challenges that SEC football brings. To round it out, they have a gem in Garrett Nussmeier that is just sitting on the bench waiting his turn. This is a position group that is amongst the best in the country.
Worst: Running Back
While QB Jayden Daniels accounts for most of LSU’s running attack, there is still some room for concern for the Tigers in the running back department. Bringing in Logan Diggs is going to be big for LSU, but they still need one man to emerge to the top of the crowded and uncertain running back room.
