Highest-graded players at every position through Week 10 of the 2021 college football season

The top of the college football highest-graded player rankings underwent a ton of change this week. The Group of Five spots feature new names at safety, offensive tackle and interior defensive lineman, among other positions, while the Power Five saw plenty of switch-ups, too. 

Here are the highest-graded college football players through Week 10.

Quarterback 

Power Five: Caleb Williams, Oklahoma Sooners | 95.1

The Sooners were off this week, but we are going to find out exactly what this team is made of going forward. They play Baylor, Iowa State and Oklahoma State to finish out the season. Luckily for them, it seems like they’ve found their next great quarterback. Williams remains on top of the rankings for another week and is one of four quarterbacks with a yards-per-attempt figure above 10.0 — his 10.8 mark ranks third-highest in the country. 

Group of Five: Malik Willis, Liberty Flames | 91.8

It was a rough afternoon for Liberty and Willis, as they didn’t stand a chance against Ole Miss. Still, Willis retains his top spot. The Flames’ pass protection has been below average all season — they sit at 83rd in the country in PFF's pass-blocking efficiency metric — and it was at its worst against the Rebels. They ranked 113th in the same metric in Week 10, which explains Willis’ poor showing to a degree. For Willis to still be topping the charts while playing behind this offensive line is a testament to his ability.  

Running Back

Power Five: Hassan Haskins, Michigan Wolverines | 90.9

In a race that once looked like Blake Corum’s to lose, it’s his teammate who leads the way after Week 10. Haskins is gaining extra points on his rivals in the pass-blocking department. His 73.5 grade there is far and away better than any of the players chasing him. Michigan State’s Kenneth Walker III is at 35.5, Kansas State’s Deuce Vaughn is at 16.3 and Corum is at 35.3.

Group of Five: Ulysses Bentley IV, SMU Mustangs | 89.0

Bentley missed SMU’s upset loss to Memphis but retained his spot atop the rankings. The Mustangs' season has gone off the rails in the past two weeks with losses to Houston and the Tigers. Bentley still possesses the highest pure rushing grade in the entire country (92.4), and his 79.1 pass-blocking grade means he’s not losing points there, either.

Wide Receiver

Power Five: Drake London, USC Trojans | 91.3

London will be playing the waiting game for the rest of the year to see if any Power Five receiver catches him as he sits out due to injury. For London’s sake, he had built such a lead that it seems unlikely he will fall from this throne. The next highest-graded Power Five receiver is Virginia’s Keytaon Thompson at 86.6. It would take a  big leap for anyone to catch London.  

Group of Five: Demario Douglas, Liberty Flames | 91.0

Douglas ranks seventh among Group of Five receivers in yards per route run (3.60). He has been battling Coastal Carolina’s Jaivon Heiligh the whole season, but the Chanticleer receiver falls all the way to fourth this week.
