10 best college football players of 2017 season's first month

There were great performances across college football in the first month-plus of the season. The 10 players listed here stood out most to me over the last five weeks.

Some were expected to be at the top of the heap before the year began, but others have surprised at their ability to rise to the forefront. If they are able to continue their strong play as conference action starts in earnest in October and continue that momentum into November, then the postseason awards will come rolling in -- as will interest from NFL scouts.
