College Football News names its top 10 pre-season buffs

Let’s continue our 2022 Colorado Buffaloes football breakdown.

Of course, opening day is always a deal breaker, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited. Camp is underway, the roster is starting to get sorted, and sooner or later Buffs fans will be streaming in to watch their team play.

College Football News took a detailed look at the Buffs, from their five-key schedule for the season.

They also took a look at the Buffs’ top 10 players heading into the 2022 season, and it looks a lot different with all the changes. Jarek Broussard and Brenden Rice left town, as did Mekhi Blackmon, Christian Gonzalez, Mark Perry and others.

Carson Wells and Nate Landman are heading to the NFL, and there are a ton of new faces in Boulder this fall.

Nonetheless, here are the top 10 buffs, according to College Football News.

Note: Sam Houston State transfer Ramon Jefferson was originally at No. 4 on this list, but he is no longer committed to CU. We’ll look at the first nine instead:

All eyes are on Brady Russell, and he can become one of the best tight ends in the Pac-12 if he has a good season.

Transferring Baylor WR RJ Sneed II should easily be the top target for anyone playing QB for the Buffs.

Do you want more pressure on the QB? It’s time for Terrance Lang to step in.

DT JALEN SAMI

The junior defensive tackle is expected to step up, and he’s recorded two sacks and 55 tackles in his career.

ISAIAH LEWIS SECURITY

Isaiah Lewis could be the best defensive player in the peloton and the whole team if he plays as expected this season.
