College football Future Power Rankings: Offenses

Spring practice is over and many of the key transfer portal decisions have been made, making it the perfect time to bring back Future Power Rankings -- a personnel-based look at the next three seasons around college football.

After examining quarterbacks and defenses, the offenses are in the spotlight, and the landscape is always evolving. Last year's FPR offense piece opened with a scene from Washington's practice, noting standouts like quarterback Michael Penix Jr., wide receivers Rome Odunze and Jalen McMillan, and tackle Roger Rosengarten. All of them are gone, selected in the top 100 picks of last month's NFL draft. Washington also has a new coach (Jedd Fisch) and an entirely new offensive depth chart. Given all the uncertainty, Washington barely made the top 25 offenses through the 2026 season.

There are changes elsewhere, even since the quarterback FPR list back in March. Georgia enhanced its future quarterback outlook with transfer Jaden Rashada, while Miami added to its offensive backfield with running back Damien Martinez. Colorado has reshaped its running back room with Ohio State's Dallan Hayden and Miami (Ohio)'s Rashad Amos, while losing Dylan Edwards to Kansas State and Alton McCaskill to Arizona State.

Given all the roster fluctuation, the rankings lean more on coaching. Those who have overseen perennially elite offenses -- USC's Lincoln Riley, Ohio State's Ryan Day, Ole Miss' Lane Kiffin, Alabama's Kalen DeBoer, FSU's Mike Norvell, Tennessee's Josh Heupel and Texas' Steve Sarkisian -- will continue to be represented here. Coaches taking new jobs -- Fisch at Washington, Jeff Lebby at Mississippi State -- also will gain consideration.

As always, the offense rankings will largely mirror the quarterback ones, although there are some key differences, especially for teams that have fortified areas such as the offensive line.

Let's get started.
