LSU’s Cornerback Derek Stingley Jr & Iowa State’s RB Breece Hall
The LSU Tigers had their fair share of struggle last season, but they managed to make it to the end with their talented players. Derek Stingley Jr. was one of those talented players to contribute his best for their Tigers. Stingley was noted for his 27 tackles in seven games and five break-up passes. The 19-year-old player is just starting the best of his career. Breece Hall is definitely one of those noticeable names last season for Iowa State. Hall was recognized for his performance as a freshman back in 2019. The talented player rushed for 897 yards with nine TDs in total. 2020 was an impressive season for Hall as he touched 1572 yards with 21 TDs.
Georgia’s WR George Pickens & Ohio State’s WR Garrett Wilson
Being a wide receiver is not an easy task, especially when the pressure of the game starts to build in. While some players struggle to cope, some are just amazing at what they do. George Pickens from Georgia was also recognized for his performance at freshman year. Pickens touched 727 yards and did well in the SEC Conference play. Garret Wilson was noted as one of the best wide receivers in college football. Wilson was known for his coordination with Chris Olave and the duo did cause damage to opponent teams.
Alabama’s LB Christian Harris & Oregon’s DL Kayvon Thibodeaux
Everyone knew Christian Harris for his stellar performance as a freshman. Harris had an incredible sophomore season as a linebacker after recording 79 tackles. It was the second-most recorded tackles as a Crimson Tide player. Moving onto Kayvon Thibodeaux, Oregon has been fortunate to have Thibodeaux on their team. He recorded 38 tackles with 9.5 tackles for loss and three sacks last season in the Pac-12 play. Thibodeaux has created a massive impact for his team by strengthening their defensive unit.
Texas A&M’s TE Jalen Wydermyer & RB Isaiah Spiller

Isiah Spiller took the lead for his team from the running back spot in their 2020 football season. He recorded a total of 1036 yards with nine TDs in total. From the tight end position, Jalen Wydermyer was another impressive player that helped the Aggies in some of their tough situations.
