Okay, just perusing some early college fantasy football rankings, and let's see....
Trey Johnson is listed as a freshman wide receiver at Oklahoma State. This seems weird, but at 5'8" and 167 pounds, maybe the Cowboys are hoping for some Flutie-esque moxie to compensate for the lack of field vision. He's also listed as nine of the top 20 quarterbacks in the nation. This has to be right, because Tajh Boyd is pretty dang good, and there are seven Trey Johnsons ahead of just him! A stunning accomplishment for someone who doesn't even play the position, but Mike Gundy's just that good at his job.
Now, to running backs.
The only running back better than Trey Johnson is...Trey Johnson. I can't figure out if this means that two Trey Johnsons are better than one Ka'Deem Carey, or if Ka'Deem Carey is worth 31 Trey Johnsons stacked atop each other. Either way it's a compliment, because Trey Johnson is 33 out of the 65 best running backs in the nation. Convenient in case of injuries: multiple Trey Johnsons allow you to replace his production with another, identical Trey Johnson.
You only compete against yourself on the depth chart, Trey Johnson. Now, to a position at which Trey Johnson is shockingly not the best in class:
Johnson only securing eight out of the top 10 slots -- and not the No. 1 ranking -- at his native position might be a sign of character issues. Why not all top 10 slots? What's he doing off the field to stunt the potential of an all-Trey Johnson offense?
Johnson is also only the second best tight end, per rankings, and only five of the top 10 elite tight ends in college football.
If only there were some way he could redeem himself after failing as a tight end in the projections ...
TREY JOHNSON IS THE GREATEST FIFTEEN-TOOL FOOTBALL PLAYER OF OUR TIME. He makes Hines Ward and Kordell Stewart look like dilettante long-snappers playing flag football on a rec field in comparison.
Not bad for a guy who doesn't even have a scouting report on Rivals, but scouts don't ever measure heart, and that's how you get to be 129 of the 240 best players in college football all by yourself.
