As we kick off our 2016 Northwestern Football Summer Guide, we first turn our attention to the most important players heading into the season. We didn’t define “important,” but instead chose to leave it open to interpretation — every writer could define importance in their own way, be it based on offseason improvement, play-to-play importance, or need to step up for a departed starter. Here’s how our staff ranked their Top 10, as well as the overall rankings.

Zach Pereles Ben Goren Sam Brief Ian McCafferty Rob Schaefer Tristan Jung Zach Wingrove Josh Burton Martin Oppegaard Will Ragatz Overall

10 Jordan Thompson Garrett Dickerson Austin Carr Kyle Queiro Jack Mitchell Backup quarterback Jack Mitchell Jordan Thompson Jack Mitchell Jack Mitchell Blake Hance

Throughout the next two weeks, we’ll be having debates on whether the players belong where they ended up on the ladder, starting later today with No. 10, Blake Hance. Below — or throughout the series — feel free to join in on the discussion and let us know what your Top 10 is.
