5 college football players to watch in Week 4

Keeping an eye on NFL Draft prospects.

Western Carolina v Oklahoma

College football is in full swing and each week a new group of NFL prospects will have a unique challenge. Here are the players to watch in Week 4.

Kyren Williams, Running Back, Notre Dame v. Wisconsin (12 PM ET on Fox)

Kyren Williams is the engine of the Notre Dame offense. He is a hard runner who gets fed the ball a ton every game. Wisconsin is not only the best opponent Notre Dame has faced this season, but fields one of the better defensive lines in college football. Williams will, once again, be relied on to carry Notre Dame to victory.

Treylon Burks, Wide Receiver, Arkansas v. Texas A&M (3:30 PM ET on ESPN)

Arkansas has been a pleasant surprise this year and their offensive resurgence is a big reason why. Treylon Burks is the Razorbacks’ top playmaker in the pass game with a great combination of size, speed and physicality. Texas A&M will be a tough test for Burks and the Arkansas offense. The Aggies have an athletic secondary that will test Burks in a new way this season.

Bo Melton, Wide Receiver, Rutgers v. Michigan (3:30 PM ET on ABC)

Rutgers?! That’s right. The Knights are back in black with a 3-0 start this season. Bo Melton has been a senior leader on their offense, getting his fair share of catches in the passing game. Melton is a tough receiver with route running savvy. If Rutgers wants to upset Michigan and continue their strong season, Melton will need a big game.

Kenneth Walker III, Running Back, Michigan State v. Nebraska (7 PM ET on FS1)

Kenneth Walker has asserted himself as a legit Heisman contender. The Spartan running back has been a consistent presence and a a playmaker in the running game. He is coming off a dominant performance against Nebraska and could follow up it up with an even bigger game against Nebraska to keep MSU rolling.

Spencer Rattler, Quarterback, Oklahoma v. West Virginia (7:30 PM ET on ABC)

The 2022 quarterback class has yet to really establish any surefire blue chip prospects. Spencer Rattler is an early favorite to be the first quarterback drafted because he is extremely talented, but he has not yet put together consistent performances to suggest he is first overall-worthy. West Virginia just upset Virginia Tech last week and will be looking to kill another giant today. Spencer Rattler has a chance to slam the door shut on the Mountaineers with a strong showing.
