Less than two months stand between now and the start of college football, and the rush of preseason watch lists is starting up.
Unsurprisingly, Myles Jack pops up more than once.
UCLA’s do-it-all linebacker and part-time running back landed on watch lists for both the Paul Horning and Bednarik Awards. Jack was one of five finalists for the former last season, given to the most versatile player in the country.
He is joined on the Bednarik watch list for top defensive player by fellow Bruin linebacker Eric Kendricks.
Quarterback Brett Hundley, whom UCLA is marketing as a Heisman candidate, is on the watch list for the Maxwell Award for player of the year.
