Top 50 NFL Prospects of the 2017 NCAA Season

web1 TSRPOY1211416 560x373Winning a Heisman Trophy is very prestigious. It is the highest honor any college football athlete can win because it honors his excellence in college football and labels him the greatest athlete in the country that season. He becomes a part of a very exclusive club of former college football athletes that is only 80 members (Archie Griffin won the award twice).

There are many other awards in college football too. Besides the Heisman Trophy, they also have the Maxwell Award, William V. Campbell Trophy, Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award, Broyles Award, and Walter Camp Award. On the offensive side of the ball, they have the Biletnikoff Award, John Mackey Award, Davey O’Brien Award, Outland Trophy, Dave Rimington Trophy, and Doak Walker Award. The National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA) has been around for 20 years and is responsible for protecting the integrity of these awards.

But even winning all of the trophies, and being named to all of the All-American teams, both conference and nationally, does not guarantee success in the NFL. Danny Wuerffel, Eric Crouch, Jason White, Matt Leinart, Ty Detmer, Ricky Williams, and Rashaan Salaam are just a few names from the past 30 years that come to mind. The difference between college football and the NFL is so tremendous that scouts look for talent, not stats. They look for the size and strengths of players rather than being awed by how many touchdowns they scored.

So with the season beginning, we wanted to take a look at the NCAA college football players who are going to be the biggest and the best NFL stars for the next several years instead of simply listing out a bunch of college football players that are going to dominate the 2017 season. Enjoy.
