College Football News Preview 2020: Top Eastern Michigan Eagles Players
Best Eastern Michigan Eagles Offensive Player
WR Dylan Drummond. Jr.
Quian Williams is the more explosive playmaker for the receiving corp. The junior averaged 13 yards per catch with six scores, but the 6-0, 181-pound Drummond is the one who keeps things moving.
Quick enough to be used as a return man – and potentially more as a runner – he came up with a team-high 55 tackles. He only scored three times – two of them in the opener against Coastal Carolina – and he didn’t get more than 72 yards in any game, but he’s good for at least four grabs every time out.

Best Eastern Michigan Eagles Defensive Player
DE Turan Rush, Sr.
The defense doesn’t have a whole slew of sure-thing All-MAC stars, but it also doesn’t have a whole slew of sure-thing pass rushers, either.
The Eagles only came up with 22 sacks last season, but the 6-2, 246-pound Rush led the way with five of them, to go along with six tackles for loss and 39 sacks. He also did a decent job of generating pressure on the quarterback, and now it’s up to him to do even more.
