It’s that time of year again. The time when we make our list of the newest crop of college football players we are excited to see take the field (and compare them to last year’s talent. No, not the potential Heisman candidates or incoming true freshmen or the junior college transfers, but the group of student-athletes with the best monikers. Some of these players may not even take the field too often, but just the sight of their names in our media guides are enough to make us fans.
