The Associated Press' college football preseason top 25 poll was released on Monday afternoon, with Clemson coming in at No. 1 and Alabama at No. 2.

ESPN's new college football analyst, Ryan Leaf, has decided to share his own preseason top 25 poll.

Leaf has Clemson at No. 1 and Alabama at No. 2, though his poll does feature some notable differences.

Utah is inside his top 10 at No. 9 and Nebraska, a popular preseason top 25 pick, is nowhere to be found.

Here's his full top 25:

Leaf, the former NFL Draft bust, was hired as a college football analyst for ESPN earlier this summer.

"Five years ago, sitting in a prison cell, I would have never imagined that I was going to be part of ESPN and the Disney Corporation,'' Leaf said after getting hired. "If you would have told me that, I would have said you are absolutely crazy. And I can't believe it. I lay my head down every night with a ton of gratitude.''

Leaf will be calling games on ESPN2 and ESPNU this season.
