3. TOP UMASS PLAYERS

Best UMass Offensive Player

WR Sadiq Palmer, Sr.
Someone has to rise up and become the new No. 1 receiver. There are plenty of options, and it’ll be an open casting call, but the 6-2, 190-pound Palmer has the experience and deep play ability to try taking over for Andy Isabella. He won’t make 102 catches like the former star, but after finishing second on the team with 28 grabs for 419 yards and two scores – averaging 15 yards per catch – but he needs to get the ball his way more.

2. QB Michael Curtis, Sr.
3. QB Randall West, Sr.
4. OT Ray Thomas-Ishman, Sr.
5. OT Larnel Coleman, Soph.

Best UMass Defensive Player

QB Isaiah Rodgers, Sr.
The 5-10, 170-pounder out of Tampa had a strong sophomore season with 50 stops and 14 broken up passes, and followed it up with 56 tackles with two picks and three tackles for loss. One of the team’s fastest players. he’ll be used as a return man from time to time, too.

2. LB Chinedu Ogbonna, Jr.
3. DE Jake Byczko, Jr.
4. S Joseph Norwood, Soph.
5. LB Cole McCubrey, Jr.
