College Football's Top 50 Players and Their NFL Comparisons

I want to do something special for you—the loyal reader—for the Thanksgiving holiday. To show my appreciation, I am going to give you a 2-for-1 article (my grocery store has 2-for-1 turkeys, so I know such a promotion exists in relation to the holiday).

What two things are you getting? First…the top 50 college football players in the nation. Second, their NFL equivalent.

“Equivalents” are based on a few factors. For one, it’s a comparison of size and speed. Next, we’re going to take into account the style in which the player plays. Add in intangibles, and you get what I believe are close “equivalents” for every college player.

Keep in mind that I’m comparing all of these college players to well known current or former NFL players. Since the NFL players are well known, there’s a good chance that they’re very good as well. The purpose of this article isn’t to say that the college player will/won’t be as good as their comparison. It’s just to say that they exude the same characteristics and attributes outlined above.

What NFL player is your favorite college player comparable to? Who is this guy from the MAC most like in the NFL? Read on to find out.
