We continue to roll out, update, tweak, edit and revisit ourprojections and previews prior to your fantasy draft. And while doing so we're going to occasionally take a more-detailed look at some of the nation's more intriguing stars for 2012.
The players featured over the next month or so may not be the top player at their respective positions, but they'll be ones that caused the most discussion around our roundtable or appear poised for a breakout or letdown campaign.
Breakdowns of college football's top offensive stars can of course be found in the CFFInsider.com 2012 Draft Kit.
2012 Position Rank: Is Seastrunk the top ranked Baylor RB?
2012 Draft Kit Preview:
Lache Seastrunk's time is now, and we'll soon be able to tell if we're looking at one of the nation's most explosive transfers or another Darrell Scott. For now we only have the word "potential" to base any judgment on the former Oregon Duck. He can certainly fly and there is optimism about what he can do in Waco. However he'll have to pass Jarred Salubi and maybe even Glasco Martin on the depth chart first. He's worth a look as a late-round flyer. Keep in mind that Terrance Ganaway did lead the conference in rushing a season ago. A good spring game points to Seastrunk being ready to roll. However, there is a lot of sorting out to do in the Baylor backfield and the odds for split carries is high.
There is plenty of speculation as to why Seastrunk left Oregon. Everything ranging from distancing himself from the Willie Lyles scandal, to being closer to his grandmother to having a case of Bryce Brown Syndrome.
Whatever the reason, it didn't work at Oregon and we are conditioned to believe it will at Baylor simply because he was a highly-rated recruit coming out of high school. Call me not sold on this one. Salubi and Martin are no slouches either;the've both averaged over 6 yards per carry when called upon.
Still, I'm not naive. Seastrunk is a burner and he's the type of running back that can excel in the Bears' offense. All reports coming out of the Bears' camp have been positive, especially this spring. So he could still deliver.
Seastrunk is not someone I'm personally going to target on draft day. I like taking risks, but this one has too many red flags for my tastes. I wouldn't be shocked if he emerged as the Bears' leading rusher and one of the top playmakers in the Big XII. Just as I wouldn't be shocked if he was the third RB off the bench. I'll let someone else take him, especially someone willing to reach early in the draft.
