The best at everything in college football

Who's the best quarterback when facing a blitz? How about throwing a slant route? Who's the toughest running back to tackle in college football? On defense, who's the best run-stuffer and interior pass-rusher (hint: It's the same person, he's very large and he plays for Alabama).

Pro Football Focus has crunched all the numbers and has come up with college football's best at just about everything. You'll see a lot of familiar names in here, but also some surprising ones.

Best overall grade, offense: Kyler Murray, Oklahoma, 96.3
Murray's road to the Heisman Trophy is one revenge game against Texas away, as he's our clear-cut highest-graded offensive player, regardless of position (next closest is UMass WR Andy Isabella at 93.1). No quarterback has finished a whole season with a grade above 96.0, and the closest quarterback to do so just happened to play quarterback at Oklahoma and won the Heisman Trophy last year, as Baker Mayfield finished the 2017 campaign at 95.2 overall.
