Most Exciting Players of 2022 College Football

Most Exciting Players of 2022 College Football  
Football fans always root for their favorite teams, especially if they've already placed their bets and bought the swag. But above all, entertainment is what keeps people glued to their TVs and inspires pilgrimages to stadiums every season.  
Whether the favored teams win or lose, the individual players that make the big plays are what makes football so addictive to watch. Keep a close eye on these exciting players and you might get a glimpse of future NFL stars.  
Will Anderson Jr., OLB, Alabama  
It certainly helps that this fierce outside linebacker is on top ranked Alabama, a powerhouse team known for exciting football and athletic excellence, but Will Anderson Jr is a singular talent. The leading college football player in sacks (17.5) and tackles (101) last year, he is an defensive beast on the field. Consequently, there has been plenty of buzz that he’ll be the top NFL draft pick next year.  
Deuce Vaughn, RB, Kansas State 
Compared to other running backs from top-tiered teams, Vaughn doesn’t often land the spotlight since Kansas State isn't as prestigious as programs like Ohio State or Alabama. But when you look at his performance in 2021, he has certainly earned some recognition. With a total of 1,872 yards, 49 receptions, and 22 scores, this first-team AP All-American could be the hidden gem that outruns a seemingly unstoppable defensive line.  
Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas 
With stats that easily put him as a frontrunner for the Heisman trophy, all eyes are on Robinson, who is set to have a big year. Even with an elbow injury that kept him out of two games, his tenacity is a testament to his total of 1,127 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2021.  
Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia 
An exciting defensive tackle to watch, Carter made some big plays last year, causing head scratching moments for teams with a seemingly unstoppable offense. With impressive stats like 11.7% tackle averages on snaps, ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. has him ranked as the #4 prospect in the 2023 NFL draft.  
TreyVeyon Henderson, RB, Ohio State  
With impressive stats, including 1, 272 yards and 15 touchdowns, Henderson was one of the most impressive freshman players in 2021. This year, when he's on the field playing offense or Ohio State, you can expect some exciting plays with even better performance.  
Malik Cunningham, QB, Louisville 
As a team, Louisville has a long list of challenges this season, but the best tool in their offensive arsenal is Malik Cunningham. The epitome of excitement in college football, he's made history as one of two quarterbacks in the program's history to pass for 300 yards and run for 200 in a game. He was also the only quarterback last season to surpass 1000 rushing yards, making him a dynamic player to watch this year.  
Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU  
A season ending injury last October would have slowed down some players, but not Boutte, who racked up 13 touchdowns in nine games as a freshman. Going into the 2022 season, he's considered one of the most talented players on the roster.  
Bryan Bresee, DT, Clemson 
Even though his time on the field was cut short due to a torn ACLU in his fourth game last year, we got a glimpse of this force of talent on Clemson’s defense. With impressive stats in such a short amount of time, he was awarded the third team all ACC honors in 2021. Fully recovered from his injuries, he is back and expected to play better than ever.  
Sean Tucker, RB, Syracuse 
Syracuse is known for its strong running back tradition, so it's no surprise that Sean Tucker has found a sweet spot on last year’s offensive. He made history when he broke the single-season school rushing record with 1, 496 yards, securing his spot as a serious Heisman trophy contender.  
Devin Leary, QB, NC State  
As a quarterback that made history last year for NC State, you can expect some big plays from Devin Leary, the most talented player on the team. Based on last year's performance and his entire career at NC State, he is arguably one of the best quarterbacks in the country. Setting the single season school touchdown record last year with 35 touchdowns, you can expect epic, NFL level plays during his final season.
