Minnesota Golden Gophers College Football Preview 2021: Top Players

Best Minnesota Golden Gophers Offensive Player

RB Mohamed Ibrahim, Sr.
The 5-10, 210-pounder went from being a great part of a rotation to one of the toughest workhorse runners around. He won’t do much for the passing game, but he’ll averaged well over five yards per carry and will handle it 20 times or more per game. He hit the 100-yard mark in each of the seven games – and is on a run of eight straight getting to 100 – with 15 scores.

2. WR Chris Autman-Bell, Sr.
3. QB Tanner Morgan, Sr.
4. OG Conner Olson, Sr.
5. OG/OT Blaise Andries, Sr,

Best Minnesota Golden Gophers Defensive Player

CB Coney Durr, Sr.
Able to play anywhere in the secondary, the 5-10, 200-pounder overcame a knee injury to be a big part of the fun over the last three years with close to 100 tackles with four picks and 20 broken up passes.

All-Big Ten on the field and in the classroom, he’s a strong veteran who’ll lock down one outside spot – even though he might be stronger as a free safety – and be one of the team’s top tacklers.

2. DE Boye Mafe, Sr.
3. S Tyler Nubin, Jr.
4. S Jordan Howden, Sr.
5. DT DeAngelo Carter, Soph.

Top Incoming Minnesota Golden Gophers Transfer

DT Nyles Pinckney, Sr.
Minnesota is already solid at tackle, and it’s about to get even better.

Pinckney’s a former super-recruit for Clemson who wasn’t bad for the perennial national championship contender. He’s got 6-1, 290-pound size, quickness, and a whole lot of experience at the highest of levels with 98 career tackles with three sacks and 13 tackles for loss.
