College Football News Preview 2020: Top Tulane Green Wave Players
Best Tulane Green Wave Offensive Player
RB Amare Jones, Jr.
There might be steadier parts to the backfield, but Jones could be the team’s most valuable playmaker. The 5-11, 190-pound junior averaged over six yards per carry with 371 yards and four scores, and he worked a bit as a slot receiver with 34 grabs for 367 yards and two touchdowns.
Also an elite kick and punt returner – averaging 24 yards per kickoff return in his first two seasons and close to ten yards per punt return – just get the ball in his hands.
2. RB Corey Dauphine, Sr.
3. OG Corey Dublin, Sr.
4. QB Keon Howard, Sr.
5. OT Joey Claybrook, Jr.
Best Tulane Green Wave Defensive Player
DE Patrick Johnson, Sr.
One of the best pass rushers in the American Athletic Conference, the 6-3, 250-pound Johnson came up with ten sacks and 14 tackles for loss in an amazing sophomore season, and followed it up with 35 tackles with four sacks and 8.5 tackles for loss.
His numbers might have been down, but he was never quite right. If he can stay healthy, expect double-digit sacks again.
2. S Chase Kuerschen, Sr.
3. CB Jaylon Monroe, Sr.
4. LB Marvin Moody, Sr.
5. DT De’Andre Williams, Sr.
