Bruce Feldman unveiled his “Biggest freaks in college football” piece on Monday and it should be no surprise that there’s a lot of Big Ten players on it.

There are eight players in his top 25 for biggest freaks and it starts at No. 2 with Aidan Hutchinson of Michigan. He put up 15 tackles last season before he got hurt and it’s looking like he may have a big season this year, assuming he stays healthy. In 2019, he had 68 tackles and 4.5 sacks with two forced fumbles and that was when he didn’t miss a beat.

After Hutchinson, George Karlaftis of Purdue is next at No. 7 and he also looks to be in line for a strong season. He’s one of the best players on the Boilermakers defense and proved that in 2019 when he had 54 tackles (30 solo) with 7.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

Tyler Linderbaum of Iowa round out the top 10 and he’s not only one of the best offensive linemen in the conference, but in the country as well. According to Feldman, (subscription required) he only allowed three QB pressures on 280 pass-blocking snaps last year.

Here are the other five B1G players who are in the top 25:

  • No. 14: Cameron Jurgens, Nebraska, Center
  • No. 17: Boye Mafe, Minnesota, Defensive End
  • No. 19: Master Teague, Ohio State, Running Back
  • No. 22: Leo Chenal, Wisconsin, Inside Linebacker
  • No. 23: Marcelino McCrary-Ball, Indiana, Defensive Back
