By Samuel Fuller
Nov. 16, 2019

With the college football season about three-quarters of the way through, I've decided to update my Big Board from the Way-Too-Early Board I published just over a month ago. A lot of the prospects are the same, but there are definitely significant risers (Joe Burrow & Kenneth Murray) and fallers (Jake Fromm & Bryce Hall). The third board will probably come in another month or so, but for now, here are the best 80 players to watch throughout the end of the college football regular season:
