Scouts Inc. ranks the top 25 players in the CFP: Deshaun Watson is No. 1

This year's College Football Playoff bracket is stacked with elite players. Among the stars on the four rosters: Heisman winner Derrick Henry, Davey O'Brien Award winner Deshaun Watson and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm winner Connor Cook, among many others.

But how do those players compare when ranked against one another? Watson went No. 1, but then things got a little tougher.

1. Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson

No player means more to his team than Watson. His 69.5 percent completion percentage ranks third in the country and he's thrown 30 touchdown passes despite losing his top receiver in Mike Williams to a season-ending neck injury during the first game of the season. At 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, his quick burst and instincts make him a threat to break long runs off options, designed keepers and scrambles.
