2018 Preseason CFN Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year

RB Jonathan Taylor, Soph. Wisconsin
Expected to be a nice part of the Badger running back puzzle as a true freshman, he became a Heisman-caliber star who flirted with the 2,000-yard mark in a historic first season. He finished with 1,977 yards and 13 scores, but he had a fumbling issue around the goal line – his touchdown numbers should’ve been far bigger. Now, behind an NFL-caliber offensive front, he should be every bit as strong and – as unrealistic as it might be – to potentially do even more.

2018 Preseason CFN Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year

DT Rashan Gary, Jr. Michigan
No argument if you wanted to make this Ohio State DE Nick Bosa – there’s no wrong answer here, at least in terms of NFL talent.

Gary was a former top national recruit who’s playing himself into a potential top overall NFL draft pick – or at least a part of the top five, along with Bosa – with phenomenal quickness and the ability to get into the backfield on a consistent basis. The 6-5, 281-pounder has 81 tackles and 5.5 sacks in his first two seasons – he might just hit that sack mark this season alone.
