10. QB Charlie Brewer, Utah from Baylor
The Utes have the lines, they have the defense, and they should have the running game with a little bit of work. What they need is a veteran quarterback who has been through it all – or almost everything – and that’s Brewer. They’re getting a four-year starter who can push the passing attack.

9. RB Keontay Ingram, USC from Texas
USC has a whole slew of interesting and dangerous transfers – Colorado WR KD Nixon will be a playmaker, and Alabama DT Ishmael Sopsher is a desperately needed interior presence – but after losing Stephen Carr (Indiana) and Markese Stepp (Nebraska), landing an 1,800-yard big back who can catch is a big deal.

8. RB Ty Chandler, North Carolina from Tennessee
Who wants to be the next home-run hitting back for the Tar Heels? The offense lost Michael Carter and Javonte Williams, and in comes Chandler after spending the last four years trying to plow away for the Vols. He ran for over 2,000 yards and has the receiving skills to add a little of everything to the UNC attack.

7. DE Jordan Strachan, South Carolina from Georgia State
South Carolina might be in rebuild mode, but it has the defensive line in place to be a factor. It was already going to be good, but getting a 6-4, 220-pound pass rusher will make the transition to the Shane Beamer era a bit easier. Strachan didn’t do much in his first two years at Georgia State, but last season he blew up with 9.5 sacks, 14 tackles for loss and 41 tackles.

6. OT Wanya Morris, Oklahoma from Tennessee
The Sooners have enough talent to put together the best team in the Lincoln Riley era, but the one thing that might have been missing was an NFL-caliber offensive tackle. The 6-5, 313-pound Morris can work just about anywhere on the line, but if he works out at left tackle, that opens up a slew of options to put together the best possible front five.
