Around this time next year, EA Sports plans to re-release its popular NCAA Football game, so there’s no better time than heading into the season to rank the top 10 most valuable players in the game. each congress, according to Rivals’ national recruiting director. Adam G palmwith Madden-like scores.
This is not an overall rating of the top 10 players but the top scorers in video games.
We move on to the Big Ten.
99 – Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Ohio State
In a team with two NFL Draft picks in the first round in wide receivers in Garrett Wilson and Chris OlaveSmith-Njigba was arguably the best dribbler on the team and finished with 95 catches from 1,606 yards and nine touchdowns last season. Is it possible to plan a defense to force others Ohio State recipients to beat them this year but the former five-star is expected to put up huge numbers once again.
99 – CJ Stroud, Ohio State
And pitching for Smith-Njigba and the rest of the Buckeyes’ fully loaded receiving corps is Stroud, who will almost certainly end up as the first quarterback of 2020 to be drafted and possibly the lead. head for the Heisman Trophy this season. Stroud completely outdid his Big Ten rivals with 4,435 passing yards and 44 touchdowns last year. The closest of touchdowns is Purdue‘S Aidan O’Connell with 28.
95 – Paris Johnson, Ohio State
And stopping Stroud is an impressive strike group but none better than Johnson, another five-star who is third in the offensive tackle standings behind Georgia‘S Broderick Jones and Tate Ratledge in 2020. With another impressive season, Johnson could easily be the NFL Draft pick in the first round, and his attacking play is virtually guaranteed to move the ball up and down the court at will. .
94 – Jack Campbell, Iowa
Iowa played 14 games last season. Campbell finished with the highest 143 tackles of the conference. The former triple star was only recruited by Iowa, State of Iowa, Minnesota and Northern Iowa from Cedar Falls, Iowa, average more than 10 tackles per game and could have an even more productive season. Whatever the case, Campbell still has to be considered one of the best defenders not only in the Big Ten but nationally.
93 – Braelon Allen, Wisconsin
The only backrunners who had more dashes last season in the Big Ten than Allen were the state of Michigan‘S Kenneth Walker and Michigan‘S Hassan Haskins and they were second- and fourth-round NFL Draft picks, respectively. Allen, the former four-star Fond du Lac, Wisc., State’s Top Player in 2021, had 1,268 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. We know Wisconsin will keep running the ball and the stats will come in Allen’s way.
92 – TreVeyon Henderson, Ohio State
If there’s one player on this list who can have an even bigger breakout season as multiple teams try to plot their way past Ohio State, it’s Henderson, who excelled last season with 1,255 yards and 15 touchdowns in just 184 attempts. Meanwhile, Walker carried it 263 times and Haskins carried it 270 times.
90 – Taulia Tagovailoa, Maryland
Maryland there will be big timers and Tagovailoa, who really doesn’t look like a stellar high school quarterback but has transformed his game at Maryland, should come up with the big numbers. Last year, it was unlucky that the former four-star outside Rivals250 threw further than any quarterback in the conference other than Stroud. He also has more TD passes than every Big Ten QB except for three others – Stroud, O’Connell and Michigan State Payton Thorne.
88 – Blake Corum, Michigan
Last season, Corum ran for 952 yards and 11 touchdowns, and that’s when Haskins took on a wide range of loads. Donovan Edwards This season, Corum should have had a more prominent role, but Corum still dribbles very often and he has the speed and ability to play the ball in the open.
Henderson could have a monster season at Ohio State and the same could happen with Corum in Ann Arbor.
84 – Peter Skoronski, Northwest
Skoronski was very talented in high school but there are also some questions about whether he can play ball at his caliber or whether he will move inside. It doesn’t matter now because Northwest attacking striker who ended up being four stars at the end of the Rivals250 is one of the best in his position in college football and his outstanding physical presence and footwork can help him get to the first round.
82 – Ji’Ayir Brown, Penn State
Iowa fans might want to see Riley Moss in this position but Brown had six interceptions last season and returned once for touchdown to lead the Big Ten. The most picks in Penn State since 2006 and his 87-yard interception for the score is the sixth longest in school history. Brown is a backline player and with another season under him could have a huge impact on the Nittany Lions.
