McShay's 2018 NFL draft Top 10 RBs: Ronald Jones

Although not an overpowering back, Jones breaks a lot of attempted arm tackles and is a willing blocker in pass protection. A sprinter on the USC track team, he also has great top-end speed.

McShay's 2018 NFL draft Top 10 QBs: Sam Darnold

Is Darnold or Wyoming's Josh Allen the top-rated passer headed into the 2017 season? McShay grades both similarly, but sees one as more complete than the other.

Undrafted rookie RB Justin Davis, a USC alum, was back playing at the Coliseum. It was weird for him to see everything covered in blue instead of red, "But at the end of the day, it's home for me. When I got on the grass, all the memories started to come back." Davis broke off several long runs, but also fumbled twice. "It's definitely still in my mind," he said. "The runs make it a little better, but there's still things I just can't afford to do."

Backing into Troy. The reality, though, is there won't be any backing into the season for Trojans, who don't have any byes and play 12 straight weeks.
