The 2019 college football season should be a lot of fun for a lot of reasons. One big aspect of that is because of the number of talented guys returning to the field this fall.
Monday morning, ESPN released a list of the 10 best returning players in college football for the upcoming season, and two B1G names were included. Ohio State defensive lineman Chase Young and Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor both cracked the list.
Young came in at No. 9 while Taylor was three spots ahead at No. 6. Both are two of the more intriguing players returning to the field for the B1G this fall.
Below is the full top 10 list, posted by ESPN on Twitter:

With Nick Bosa and Dre’Mont Jones gone, Young is expected to be the playmaker for the Buckeyes along the defensive front this season. Last fall, Young tallied 14.5 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks.
Taylor is considered one of the B1G’s best chances to win the Heisman Trophy. A year ago, the Wisconsin back led the nation in rushing yardage with 2,194 yards. He also scored 16 touchdowns for the year.
Both players will be a lot of fun to watch all season long.
