    Congrats to all these guys in the SoCon ! Considering those are just the seniors.. it shows that the conference as a whole probably has 25+ Pro-TYPE ( tryout / CFL / NFL ) players.. as in guys who are NFL worthy or at least close and worth a look at a Pro-day

    Y - Wofford always seems to have several Ohio and KY kids.. some of whom have been good pickups

    We've got good ones. This is as probably as deep at RB as the SoCon has been since the Kevin Richardson/Jermaine Austin/Jerome Felton days.

    The top three are largely interchangeable to me. Both Holmes and Devezin will put up a lot of volume playing in what have been primarily single back offenses. Wynn is a complete player, but gets fewer touches and shares the backfield with a similarly talented Corey Watkins.
    FU all the time.

    I expect Devin Abrams to make some noise - in Furman's scheme Abrams (6-1, 215) is a running back (h-back). I'd look for him to get carries around the goal line. With Abrams athletic ability we could see him break some big runs too.

    Darius Morehead has hung up his cleats - so I'd bet incoming freshman Wayne Anderson Jr will get some PT, Anderson is very similar to Wynn, another complete player (1,524 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns, 314 receiving yard and two touchdowns).

    The disadvantage for Wynn will be that Furman will have 15 plus players rush the ball.

    Re: SoCon 2019 Off-Season

    I don't have an issue with the WR rankings. Furman, Wofford, and the Citadel run the ball too much to really have guys vault up those rankings.

    I'm interested to see how Shelling and Durden do this season without their WR1s from last season (McKnight and Irvin) drawing a lot of fire.
