In this article series, I will provide game films and analysis of Devy players.
Overall and positional rankings can be seen in the rankings tab Here.
Master Teague, RB Ohio State
5’-11” 220 lbs | 4-Star 2021 Draft Class (So)
Sophomore running back Master Teague has received limited touches behind J.K. Dobbins this season, but when given the opportunity he has taken advantage. Averaging 7.0 yards a carry on the season, he runs with power, has excellent contact balance, and always gains extra yardage when being tackled. He’s patient at the line of scrimmage, has good cutback ability, and shows decent burst when hitting the second level. The 2021 running back class is not expected to be very good, butTeague could be a bright spot and is worth monitoring throughout the season.
Zach Charbonnet, RB Michigan
6’-1” 220 lbs | 4-Star 2022 Draft Class (So)
Zach Charbonnet is one of many impressive freshman 2022 running backs making an impact in their first season. When you watch Charbonnet’s film, the one thing that stands out is his lower body strength and power. He’s a big back at 6’-1” and 220 pounds and uses that frame to punish defenders and is a handful to tackle. He will not beat the opposition with burst and short speed, but he’s a shifty one-cut runner who will use his leg drive to carry defenders and move the chains. Last week, Michigan leaned on Charbonnet to get back in the game against Penn State where he averaged over five yards a carry and scored two touchdowns. Charbonnet is a quality deep devy target if you are rebuilding your current dynasty roster.
KJ Hamler, WR Penn State
5’-9” 176 lbs | 4-Star 2021 Draft Class (So)
Justin Shorter was supposed to be the breakout wide receiver in Happy Valley this year, but it’s been sophomore K.J. Hamler who has emerged as the team’s top receiving threat. Hamler has 4.28 speed allowing him to beat defenders deep on vertical post patterns and the agility to win on short slant and curl routes in the middle of the field. The video below exhibits his quick footwork at the line of scrimmage easily creating separation. He’s also an excellent kickoff return specialist that will be attractive to NFL scouts. Hamler is another rising wide receiver in a deep 2021 class that needs to be on your watch list.
Sage Surratt, WR Wake Forest
6’-3” 215 lbs | 2-Star 2020 Draft Prospect (rSo)
Sometimes it takes a couple of years for collegiate players to break out and that’s certainly the case with Wake Forest wide receiver Sage Surratt. As a redshirt sophomore, he’s exploded on the scene this year as Wake Forest’s go-to playmaker. Through Week 8, he has 53 receptions for 881 yards and 9 touchdowns. According to expandtheboxscore.com, he has a 42% dominator rating and a 72% catch rate on the season. As the film shows below, he’s physical at the catch point, has strong hands and outstanding body control when catching the back shoulder fade patterns. Surratt is a very intriguing prospect and it should be interesting to see if he returns for his junior year. Either way, Surratt is making a name for himself this season.
George Pickens, WR Georgia
6’-3” 193 lbs | 5-Star 2022 Draft Prospect (Fr)
Georgia freshman wide receiver George Pickens is already the alpha dog on the Bulldogs. He plays with confidence and tenacity not typically seen in a first-year player. Pickens is an extremely physical player who dominates at the catch point with strong hands and is tough to bring down. He won’t beat you with speed but is a footwork tactician always seemingly finding a way to get open. Pickens is my second ranked 2022 wide receiver only behind Ohio State’s Garrett Wilson. That may change if he continues to dominate on the field.
