Bruce Feldman’s Top 20 College Football ‘Freaks’ For 2014

It’s time to unleash the “Freaks.” In anticipation of the fast-approaching 2014 college football season, FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman has compiled his annual list of the top 20 players in the country “who can wow his coaches and teammates.” The ranking is reserved for the players who were simply born with an otherworldly set of athletic ability, such as former Gamecock Jadeveon Clowney.

This year Auburn wide receiver Sammie Coates, who has knack for scoring big-time touchdowns, has been chosen by Feldman as the No. 1 Freak.
