The 2010 college football season will open with the classic “changing of the guard” storyline. Gone are some of the top prospects that have ever graced a college campus, such as Tim Tebow, Sam Bradford and Colt McCoy. However, with the beginning of every football season, another opportunity exists for college football's next stars to emerge and enter the limelight. In the first of a series of fantasy teams, SEC Sportsfan.com has created our 2010 college football dream team. These would be our top picks for our NCAA fantasy football team.
QB: Ryan Mallett, Arkansas. Mallett lead the Razorbacks to an 8-5 record in 2009, while completing 55.8% of his passes for an impressive 3,627 yards and 30 TDs. Mallett is widely considered a prototypical NFL prospect, which includes an imposing frame (6-7, 238lbs.).
RB: Mark Ingram, Alabama. Ingram won the Heisman Trophy in 2009, rushing for 1,658 yards and 17 touchdowns. The powerful, yet agile Ingram will look to win a national title in 2010 for the top-ranked Crimson Tide.
FB: Stanley Havili, Southern California. Havili has been mainly utilized as a blocker, but his breakout game in the 2009 Emerald Bowl was an early glimpse of the future.
WR: A.J. Green, Georgia. Green is arguably entering the 2010 season as the nations top WR. After compiling 58 receptions for 808 yards and 6 TDs, Green is considered a nightmare to deal with by every NCAA defensive coordinator and a dream for NFL scouts. Oh, did I mention that Green stands 6’4’’ and weighs in at 207lbs?
WR: Julio Jones, Alabama. Jones’ 2009 campaign was nearly identical to A.J. Green. Jones amassed 43 receptions for 596 yards and 4 TDs. If Jones played for a pass-first offense, his production would be off the charts.
TE: Kyle Rudolph, Notre Dame. Standing 6’-6’’ and weighing 265lbs, Rudolph is an imposing figure on the field and a punishing blocker. Most surprising of all, the junior TE posses excellent hands and can even be flexed out at WR.
OT - Gabe Carimi, Wisconsin
G - Rodney Hudson, Florida State
C - Mike Pouncey, Florida
G - Benjamin Ijalana, Villanova
OT - Nate Solder, Colorado
CB: Prince Amukamara, Nebraska. Amukamara is a big, physical corner that excels in press coverage. Last season was a breakout one for Amukamara, as he compiled 64 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, 5 INTs, 11 pass breakups
CB: Ras-I Dowling, Virginia. Dowling has all the tools to be a top NFL corner. He is still a bit unpolished, but his physical attributes and talent allows him to dominate at the college level.
FS: Rahim Moore, UCLA. Has 10 interceptions as a sophomore, enough said!
SS: DeAndre McDaniel, Clemson. McDaniel is a very physical and productive safety. After having 98 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, 8 INT, and 1 forced fumble in 2009, it is easy to see why NFL scouts have a first round grade on McDaniel.
LB: Ronell Lewis, Oklahoma. Look for Lewis to grow into his large frame this season and dominate the line of scrimmage.
ILB: Greg Jones, Michigan State. Production, Production, Production. As a sophomore, Jones registered an impressive 127 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, and 3 passes broken up in coverage. He improved upon that as a junior with 154 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, 9 sacks, and a forced fumble. Jones has averaged 9.2 tackles per game from his middle linebacker spot for his career.
LB: Bruce Carter, North Carolina. Carter was recently ranked the No. 1 workout warrior by ESPN.com's Bruce Feldman. What more could you want from a LB?
DE - Greg Romeus, Pittsburgh
DT - Marvin Austin, North Carolina
DT - Cam Heyward, Ohio State
DE - Marcell Dareus, Alabama
