17 for '17: Offensive players who will be NFL stars
In the latest installment of College Football 24/7's 17 for '17 series, we look at 17 offensive players who are on their way to becoming stars in the NFL. With an emphasis on prospects who play the skill positions that are the breeding ground for star-quality players, we compiled a look at some of the most prolific talents in the college game in consultation with scouts and NFL.com analysts. As such, only one offensive lineman made the list, along with five quarterbacks, five receivers, five running backs and a tight end. On the heels of an NFL draft that included two running backs picked in the top 10 for the first time since 2005, this year's crop of offensive stars includes two more dynamic rushers at the top of the list.
