2018 Preseason CFN American Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year

QB McKenzie Milton, Jr. UCF
Can he keep it all going despite the coaching change? Scott Frost liked to run an up-tempo attack – Josh Heupel wants to take things to warp speed. Can Milton hit the 4,000-yard mark with 37 touchdowns again? Yeah – the stats will be there, even if this isn’t going to be another unbeaten season.

Just 5-11 and 185 pounds, Milton isn’t all that big, but he’s accurate, experience, and a baller who’ll keep all the offensive fun going.

2018 Preseason CFN American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year

DT Ed Oliver, Jr. Houston
He would’ve been a top three overall pick had he been able to come out early this year. Instead, it’s salary-drive time for the perfect defensive tackle blend of 6-3, 290-pound size and tremendous quickness and athleticism. In two years, he’s come up with 138 tackles, 10.5 sacks and 38.5 tackles for loss. And now, he might just be the best player in college football this season.
