EA Sports is getting ready to pop the latest iteration of its NCAA Football series (if they haven't already; forgive me, I'm not always hip to the gaming industry), and the folks at Operation Sports got a quick look at the top 10 players on each roster in order of overall rating. Here are Indiana's top 10 players, per EAS:
1) Greg Heban -- 89
2) Mitch Ewald -- 87
3) Chase Hoobler -- 86
4) Bernard Taylor -- 84
5) Stephen Houston -- 84
6) David Cooper -- 84
7) Kofi Hughes -- 84
8) Collin Rahrig -- 83
9) Ted Bolser -- 82
10) Antonio Marshall
Not really trying to spark all kinds of argument. There are some exceptions to take with that, like how Cody Latimer didn't make the list and how Bolser, despite being perhaps the best (or at least most potentially productive) tight end in the Big Ten ahead of this season, is so far down it.
It's not much of a surprise not to see any of the QBs on the list, mostly because all three probably still have some proving to do. And while I do think a freshman might wind up becoming one of the 10 best or most important players on roster this season, there's no way for the game to know that right now. I am curious where the 2013 guys are rated overall.
Anyway, link is below. Debate away.

Usually not a good thing when the kicker is #2
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Well Ewald might finish as one of the two or three best kickers in IU history, so I wouldn't underrate it.
Bump because this is some fun stuff!
I would have thought Houston would have been in our top 3.
Talent-wise, I think he's there. But because of the offense and his own growth as a player, I think the inconsistency is probably why he's No. 5.
Yeah I'd put Houston up there at the top.
I can understand Spriggs and Feeney not making the list because they are young and probably have a low AWR (awareness) rating, but guys like Latimer, Wynn, and Hughes should all be rated 85+. Latimer is just a freak of nature. Also, Roberson and Coffman should be higher than 82.
I'm thinking Stoyanovich would be up there. Who else would you think?

Statistically, Austin Starr has to be in the conversation as well. His last two seasons were outstanding.
There was a really good kicker after Stoyanovich too. I think his name was Scott Bonnell or something like that. If I remember correctly.
