    Our annual exercise is over and the result is a Top Five that was as close to consensus as possible. On a roster with unproven talent and unprecedented depth, part of what makes this list interesting and fun is that I put zero qualifications on the logic used to rank players. Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.

    Florida v South Carolina

    Outside of digging up some old game tape from Florida, it’s tough to know what to expect from Cody Riggs. On paper, his 26 starts at Florida — on one of the SEC’s best defenses — validate his reputation, part of the reason why our panel judged him the 14th best player on the Irish roster.

    Notre Dame v Air Force

    As we roll out this year’s rankings, it’s worth putting up a special post just for the players who just missed being ranked in our final composite ranking. With depth on this roster significant, and several unknown quantities expected to play big roles, quite a few players left off the Top 25 list will likely be a big contributor this season.
