    Sport Illustrated Top 100 Players for 2019

    Havenít seen this discussed here yet, but I thought this was a good series from last week. Interesting analysis on a lot of the players.

    10 of our guys on the list. Ruggs is the only one top of mind that I think definitely should have been on it. Otherwise itís a pretty solid list. Check it out:

    100-51
    https://www.si.com/college-football/...on-khalil-tate
    86- Xavier McKinney
    71 - Najee Harris
    61 - Anfernee Jennings

    50-26
    https://www.si.com/college-football/...s-dandre-swift
    39 - Jaylen Waddle
    32 - Alex Leatherwood
    (For those interested, Hurts is #28)

    25-11
    https://www.si.com/college-football/...ert-jake-fromm
    24 - Trevon Diggs
    16 - Dylan Moses

    10-1
    https://www.si.com/college-football/...tua-tagovailoa
    10 - Raekwon Davis
    4 - Jerry Jeudy
    2 - Tua
    (#1 is Trevor Lawrence, but thatís not a shock)

    If it's me, and I'm building my team from scratch -- I think I might be taking Ruggs first.....over our other WRs.... not a slight on any of them, I just think Henry is a beast who doesn't take plays off....and finds the end zone.

    There was a sport talk guy here in georgia that said he felt Ruggs was better than Jeudy.

    Not terribly surprised by the list, but a bit surprised in the order.

    Without question, Raekwon has Top-10 ability. But whether he can consistently maintain focus, effort, and assignment discipline for multiple games remains an open question. When he's on, he's a terror. Consistency has, however, been an acknowledged issue. Plus, now the NFL is watching with great interest. For our sake and that of his wallet, I'm rooting for him to address that in a positive manner.

    I agree with you 100%. And I'm not in the habit of making incendiary comments about our players. But from where I sit...top in the country??? MAYBE not even top 4 on his unit (Moses, Lewis when healthy, McKinney, Jennings).

    And even Diggs may be higher (when healthy)

    I would not take him over Jeudy, but it's pretty much a head-scratcher to me, too, that he doesn't rate in the Top 100 (per SI, anyway).

    I'm just as surprised that Wills isn't on the list either.
