Football used to be a war of attrition, a 12-play-per-drive slug-fest where only the strongest could survive. It was grind-it-out or get-it-out, a sport that Charles Darwin, had he seen it, would have probably cited in The Origin of Species.

But those days are gone.

Here are the 25 most explosive players in college football, the guys who most adhere to this new-fangled methodology. Don't blink when you see them on Saturday; there's a good chance you'll miss something special.
