“He is a HOSS” ?
Brock Bowers is just DIFFERENT ?
— The Players' Lounge (@ThPlayersLounge) October 2, 2023
Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia Bulldogs JR
Brock Bowers not only is the best TE in division one but he has a case to be one of the best overall pass catchers in the game.
Bowers was a problem all day long for Auburn on Saturday. He caught eight passes for 157 yards and a touchdown. He now has 30 catches and three touchdowns on the season.
At 6'4, 240 lbs, Bowers is a physical specimen. He knows how to get open and uses his body well to create space. He will be the top TE taken in the draft and has a good shot to be taken in the top 10.
Texas RB Jonathon Brooks has been the best running back in the nation in the last 3 weeks.
-90.5 offensive grade (leads P5 RBs)
-488 rushing yards (leads P5)
-8.1 YPC (2nd in P5)
-308 yards after contact (leads P5)

Jonathon Brooks, RB, Texas Longhorns, SO
As good as Bijan Robinson was at Texas, their backfield has not skipped a beat since he went to the NFL. Jonathon Brooks has stepping right in to be the lead back for Texas.
Brooks has three straight games of over 100 yards rushing and has four touchdowns over the course of those games. His 597 rushing yards are third most in division one.
He is coming off a dominating performance against Kansas. He tore up Kansas, running for 218 and two touchdowns. Texas has a potent offense and despite a loaded backfield, Brooks in leading the way in carries.
Missouri WR Luther Burden III deserves to be in the Heisman Conversation, he's having a phenomenal year & helped lead the Tigers to a 5-0 record. This season he's caught 43 passes for 644 yards 5 TDs averaging 15 ypc. He also has 50 Punt Return yards. pic.twitter.com/UWiBdXMTgP

Luther Burden III, WR, Missouri Tigers, SO
The Luther Burden sophomore breakout campaign is upon us!
Burden has been on an absolute tear to start the season. His 644 yards is best in county while he is tied for second in receptions with 43. He has at least seven receptions in each game, and two of those games he has topped double digits in receptions.
The former five star recruit has found his footing with in the Missouri offense. He is a naturel athlete with great acceleration. He has all the tools to be a prominent receiver in the NFL.
As far as stock down goes, some guys are struggling a bit this season. The ones that jump out to me are as follows:
Joe Milton, QB, Tennessee Volunteers, SR
Milton was suppose to step right in and take over for Hendon Hooker. He has shown some flashes this season, but with most of the offense back in Tennessee, my hopes were a bit higher for him.
Tetairoa McMillan, WR, Arizona Wildcats, SO
Part of this I think is because he is in Arizona, who as a whole is struggling this year. McMillian does lead the Wildcats in yards (386) and receiving TDs (5) so I would not cut bait on him. He was one of my favorites going into the season and I really think he could land in the transfer pool.
