2010’s CFB All-Decade Team

Entering the final year of the teens, our All-22, so far

As we patiently await the start of the 2019 college football season, we wanted to look back at the last decade and compile a listing of the best college football players we’ve seen since 2010. Three Point Stance Magazine Managing Editor Brandon Rush, site Co-Creator Jeff Lyons, and Director of Scouting Justin Day submitted their lists, amazingly though, no current CFB made the list.

Justin Day – Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M
Jeff Lyons – Cam Newton, Auburn “He wants the ball”
Brandon Rush – Cam Newton, Auburn “His size and ability was something a lot of defenses in the SEC hadn’t seen in a long time”

Running Back:
JD – Leonard Fournette, LSU
JL – Montee Ball, Wisconsin; Leonard Fournette, LSU
BR – Trent Richardson, Alabama “Say what you want about his pro career, that dude was an animal at ‘Bama”

Wide Receiver:
JD – Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State; Julio Jones, Alabama; Kevin White, West Virginia
JL – Mike Evans, Texas A&M “Johnny Football doesn’t exist without him”
Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State “Might be the greatest “what could have been” player in my time
Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma

Tight End:
JD – Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame
JL – Jace Sternberger, Texas A&M
BR – Zach Ertz, Stanford “Literally the only pass catcher to come out of the Harbaugh/Shaw era”

BR – Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina; Ed Oliver, Houston; Aaron Donald, Pittsburgh; Vic Beasley, Clemson

JD – Von Miller, Texas A&M; Khalil Mack, Buffalo; Devin White, LSU
JL – Luke Kuechley, Boston College; Von Miller, Texas A&M “Destroyer of QBs”; CJ Mosley, Alabama
BR – Luke Kuechley, Boston College “Dude was born to play linebacker”; Reuben Foster, Alabama; Zach Cunningham, Vanderbilt “pure football player, a bit undersized and unheralded, but watch the tape”

Defensive Backs:
JD – Patrick Peterson, LSU; Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State; Tyrann Mathieu, LSU; Landon Collins, Alabama
JL – Patrick Peterson, LSU “pure lockdown”; Tyrann Mathieu, LSU “was like watching the second coming of Prime Time”; Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Alabama; Landon Collins, Alabama
BR – Patrick Peterson, LSU “Coverage, returns, physicality. The total package”; Tyrann Mathieu, LSU “Honey Badger don’t give a shit”, Malik Hooker, Ohio State; Minkah Fitzpatrick, Alabama

Justin Day – “I think the offense is dynamic. I know some players on that side of the ball haven’t made their impact on the NFL but were legitimate players makes in college. The defense is stout up front a no fly zone in the back. I think this is a completely overpowering squad.”

Jeff Lyons – “Try scoring on or stopping this team.”

Brandon Rush – “I don’t think anyone currently playing in college football can crack this list”
