    October Big Board (10/26/15)

    Last Updated: 5/1/2016 1:00 PM ET
    2015 October Big Board.



    We have reached the halfway point of the 2015-2016 college football season, we have a lot of movement on the Big Board this month. A number of players have started to show a consistent ability to make plays for their respective teams, week in and week out.

    There are a number of players who fell off the Big Board due to injuries or lack of production. Injuries have dropped Scooby Wright (ILB, Arizona) and Max Tuerk (OC, USC) from the list. Shawn Oakman, the man who has more internet memes than just about anyone else, has yet to prove he is worth a first round grade. He currently ranks 68th in total sacks this season.

    At the quarterback position, leading the way is Connor Cook (Michigan State). His overall numbers might not amaze you, it's his efficiency and ability to lead his team to victory each and every week which separate Cook from the rest of the quarterbacks. Michigan State wide receivers drop a high number of passes so Cook's numbers should be better than what they are. He is reliable, consistent and a leader for the Spartans offense.

    We have a new top rated player on our board this month, Ezekiel Elliott (RB, Ohio State). He is an impressive player who has performed at a high level the past couple of seasons and is capable of being a three down back. One of the most underrated aspects of Elliott game is his skill set in pass protection. Just an all-around great player who should be a highly sought after player come draft time.

    Leading the way on the defensive side of the ball is Joey Bosa (Ohio State), one of the most dominating defensive ends college football has seen in a long time. His production in two and a half seasons is nothing short of outstanding. In 36 career games, Bosa has recorded 24.5 sacks, 44.5 TFL, and four forced fumbles.

    There are a lot of new faces on the Board this month, including Corey Coleman (WR, Baylor) who now holds down the 20th overall spot. Some other new faces on the defensive side of the ball are Adolphus Washington (DT, Ohio State) and Carl Nassib (DE, Penn State). Both players have showed a tremendous ability to dominate and disrupt opposing quarterbacks.

    On offense, making the jump onto the Board are Paxton Lynch (QB, Memphis) and Laremy Tunsil (OT, Mississippi). Lynch has played at a remarkably high level this season for the Tigers. He has completed 66.7 percent of his passes on third down. Tunsil played in his first game against Texas A&M last week and was able to shut down Aggies star defensive end Myles Garrett. Showing quick feet and a strong punch it is no wonder why most scouts believe Tunsil will be in discussion for the first offensive lineman off the board.

    A lot will change between now and the first pick of the draft. As it stands now, this is my Top-35 Big Board. We will update the board at the end of every month throughout the college football season.
