College Football News Preview 2020: Top Missouri Tigers Players
Best Missouri Tigers Offensive Player
WR Damon Hazelton, Sr.
No pressure, new guy. Just be the team’s most dangerous offensive weapon right out of the box. The 6-3, 215-pound Hazelton started his career off at Ball State and went off, catching 51 passes for 505 yards and four scores for an offense that struggled a bit too much.
He sat out a year to be ready to shine at Virginia Tech, and he blew up in two seasons with 82 catches for 1,329 yards and 16 touchdowns. Even as a two-time transfer, he’s fine after getting his degree. He’s big, fast, and experienced – he’s exactly what the Tiger offense needs.

3. RB Larry Rountree, Sr.
4. OT Larry Borom, Jr.
5. RB Tyler Badie, Jr.
Best Missouri Tigers Defensive Player
LB Nick Bolton, Jr.
The 6-0, 230-pounder made a few plays as a promising freshman in the linebacker rotation, and last year he rose up and rocked into an All-SEC star when he got his shot to shine.
A big all-around playmaker, he led the team with 107 stops with 7.5 tackles for loss, eight broken up passes, and two interceptions, taking one for a score against West Virginia. He’s a smart, tough defender who’s always seemingly in the right position – he can work at any linebacking spot.
