Week 4 - Which College Players Are Future Vikings 2022

Toledo v Ohio State Photo by Ben Jackson/Getty Images

Week 3 did not provide any suspense for the top 9 teams in the rankings. Clemson handled South Carolina, Alabama took care of Louisiana-Monroe, Ohio State crushed Toledo, Michigan stomped UConn, Clemson beat down Louisiana Tech, Oklahoma spanked Nebraska, the USC Trojans beat up Freson State, and Kentucky whupped Youngstown State. After the top 9 there were a couple of upsets. Washington beat Michigan State and Texas A&M beat Miami.

The top teams, Georgia, Alabama, Ohio State, and Michigan are starting to stand out with 12 other top 25 teams undefeated at 3-0. The games are going to get more and more intriguing with the consequences getting higher and higher.

I’m still looking for the next Center and a solid Quarterback prospect to develop. Beyond that, I have my eyes on Cornerbacks, Edge Rushers, a handful of Receivers, and some Tight ends.

If you do not see a player that you think is worth checking out, please feel free to loist them because I am sure I missed some.

I have no clue why fanspeak moved the Vikings up to #12 this week. Tankathon has the Vikings at #22 even after their loss against the Eagles. What can you do? I can work with #12.

Trading up to get Stroud is bold but is it worth it? I’d have to say yes. The future draft picks could be later in the first (hopefully). It may not be enough to move up though.

I’m still thinking about the defense early it seems.

Well, enjoy the games!
