1st Team
QB Geno Smith WVU Jr. 2010: 241 of 372, 2763 yards, 24 TDs and 7 INTs. He might be the best pro of any WVU QB since Bulger or Hostetler. In the final victory at Rutgers, he completed 23 of 29 passes for a career-high 352 yards, the highest total since Marc Bulger threw for 429 in the 1998 Carquest Bowl. Against Connecticut Smith carried the ball 15 times for 64 yards, he's now Pat White but that showed he's not Oliver Luck either. In Dana Holgerson's offense he's likely to blossom; Holgerson was the OC at OK St. most recently and guided Houston's potent offense prior to that, after leaving 'The Dread Pirate Leach' at TTU, where he spent 8 years. Holgorsen came to Texas Tech from Wingate University in North Carolina, where he served as recruiting coordinator, quarterbacks and receivers coach and passing game coordinator. During his one season at Wingate in 1999, the school set numerous records and led the South Atlantic Conference in many offensive categories, while averaging 409 yards of total offense per game and 304.1 passing yards per game. The Wingate quarterback was an all-conference selection and a Harlan Hill semifinalist. One wide receiver was named freshman of the year, while another earned all-conference honors. Holgorsen was the quarterbacks and receivers coach at Mississippi College in Jackson, Miss., from 1996-98. MC won the 1997 American Southwest Conference in its first season in the league and averaged 432 yards per game. Holgorsen's offense will likely make Smith into a dark horse Heisman candidate.

RB Lance Dunbar, North Texas Sr. 274 carries 1553 yards, 13 TDs, 28 catches 332 yards 3 TDs. Durable and decisive he gets all the yards here and a few extra. He’s a versatile runner, who can pound out yards between the tackles, get to edge in a blink, catch the ball out of the backfield, and pick up the blitz to protect the quarterback. Although 17 pounds thicker than when he arrived, he still possesses the giddy-up of a former track star. Finally, Dunbar runs with tremendous vision, finding a hole before it closes and darting past the first line of defense. Solid in the classroom, he’s a complete student-athlete.

RB Doug Martin, Boise St. 201 carries 1260 yards, 28 catches 338 yards and 2 TDs. The 5'8 <sup>3/4</sup>" 213 human pinball is called the 'Muscle Hamster, tough, well-balanced and he plays fast. He hits the hole with real purpose and ferocity, and he’s a mace coming through the line. His quickness and agility are what you’d expect from a smaller back, but his power is like a 230 pound back, he's like a faster version of Larry Brown of Kansas State and Washington in the NFL.

WR T.Y Hilton FIU-A former Freshman All-American, Hilton is already FIU's all-time leader in all-purpose yards with 5,602. This season, Hilton led the Panthers with 59 catches for 848 yards and five touchdowns. He also ran for 282 yards and four scores. Perhaps the biggest game of his career came against ULM on Nov. 6, when he amassed 291 all-purpose yards and scored four touchdowns, two on receptions, one rushing and one on a kick return.

TE Ladarius Green ULL was one of eight Semifinalists for the John Mackey Award. He led all Mackey semifinalists in receiving yards-per-game (79.4), receiving yards-per-catch (18.0) and touchdowns (7). Green missed two games due to injury, but still led all tight ends nationally in total receiving yards (794) and games with 80 yards or more receiving (7). He made a catch of 20 yards or longer in all but one game he played this season. The junior tight end was double-teamed on over 90% of his routes and endured three different starting quarterbacks this season, but caught at least one touchdown pass from each. He led the Sun Belt with four 100-yard receiving games and in yards-per-reception (18.0).

OT Mitchell Schwartz, Sr., California, was selected All Pac-10 Second Team for the 2010 college football season as selected by the Pac-10 head football coaches. Schwartz started all 12 games in his first full season at left tackle and has now started all 38 contests possible over the first three seasons of his collegiate career.

OT David Pickard, SIU He is a good athlete and may be able to play multiple line positions. Pickard had a breakout season in 2009 and clearly put a stamp on the fact he is one of the best in the nation. He has the feet, technique, and strength of a potential NFL player. Keep an eye on this returning first-team All-Missouri Valley selection as he could be one the best offensive line prospect since David Arkin of Missouri State.

OG Lonnie Edwards, TTU, Sr. Edwards has been named: All-Big 12 second team (Coaches), All-Big 12 second team (Phil Steele), All-Big 12 second team (Rivals.com), All-Big 12 second team (San Antonio Express-News), All-Big 12 second team (Dallas Morning News) and has played in 13 games (13 starts) all at left guard on the offensive line. He's so strong he once squatted 600 lbs., while a HS senior.

OG Garth Heikkinen has solidified himself at left guard for the UMD football team. Like most offensive lineman he loves to run block, but is also a fine pass blocker. He's probably weighing about 305 or 300 and is very athletic and is a a leader on a very good line unit.

KR Jeremy Caldwell, Eastern Kentucky, KR/PR, Sr.A two-time All-Ohio Valley Conference first-team cornerback who had seven interceptions as a sophomore in 2009, Caldwell also is lights out on kickoff and punt returns. Last season, Caldwell was second to Delaware State's Larrone Moore with a 33.7-yard kickoff return average, including two returns for touchdowns, and averaged 15 yards on 13 punt returns (which would have ranked fifth nationally if he had one more return), with one touchdown. He is explosive once he gets the ball in his hands.

Zach Brown, Portland State, PK, Jr., An excellent athlete, Brown is kicking his way toward a possible NFL future. On field goals, he is an impressive 15 of 18 from 40-49 yards through two seasons. His career long is a 53-yard field goal. He was 18 of 26 overall last season - matching his school record for field goals in a season - and was perfect on extra points, which lifted him to 44-for-44 through two seasons. Brown kicked field goals of 42, 53 and 47 yards at Arizona State, providing the only Viking points in a 54-9 loss. His 53-yarder tied for the second-longest in Portland State history. He also had three kickoffs that averaged 64.8 yards in length.

Defense
DE Grant Hunter Sr. Butler, At only 6'2 <sup>1/4 </sup>" 239 he will likely be an OLB at the next level, but he has 25.5 sacks in 29 career games he is a bit like former CDS prospect poster Wyatt Gayer.

At 6'1 <sup>1/2</sup>" 223 he is most likely a 4-3 WLB at the next level.

DE Julian Miller WVU Miller played in 13 games and started 12, he was named first team all-BIG EAST by ESPN.com and second team by rivals.com and Phil Steele and was tied for No. 4 in BIG EAST in tackles for loss and sacks, earning WVU defensive player of the game honors against USF and Louisville, was the sixth-leading tackler with 54 tackles, including 28 solo stops, nine sacks, a team-leading 14 tackles for loss, one forced fumble and three pass breakups

LB Brandon Linsey Pitt He led the league in tackles for loss and finished second in sacks in 2010. Will get a chance to make all kinds of plays from new hybrid "Panther" linebacker position.

LB Miles Burris, Sr., San Diego State, has been selected All-Mountain West First Team for the 2010 college football season as selected by the nine league head coaches and select media panel. Burris ranks first in the MWC by a wide margin in both sacks (9.5) and tackles for loss (19.0), which are both career bests. The 6-3 linebacker has a team-high 74 tackles with 49 solo efforts and forced four fumbles, which ties for fourth in school single-season history.

FS Eddie Whitley, VPI Has started at free safety can play free safety, rover, either cornerback spot or in the nickel package if needed, he started 12 games, recording 73 tackles, including four for loss, also has six pass breakups, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.

SS Matt Johnson EWU, Johnson can play in the box and he's 3rd in school history in interceptions with 15. He's entering his fourth season as a starter, having earned All-Big Sky first-team and The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-America third-team honors for the FCS champion Eagles last season. In 15 games, he totaled 105 tackles with five interceptions and eight other pass breakups, adding two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He is a physical presence who is instinctive.

2nd Team
QB Casey Therriault, Jackson State, Therriault, led Grand Rapids CC to the National Junior College Athletic Association championship game in 2009 and a 9-1 record; in fall 2007, he played for College of the Sequoias, a two-year community college in California's San Joaquin Valley, where he backed up Arcelona Hall, who attended Memphis University. In 2010 he was 255 of 437, a 58.4%, 3436yards, 31TDs-8 INTS. After his involvement, along with four others, in the beating death of Jonathan "Jono" Krystiniak outside a downtown Grand Rapids bar; Therriault pleaded guilty to manslaughter and spent six months in Kent County Jail, since then he has been a changed young man.

WR/WCQB Mike Brown Libery The Armanti Edwards? 346.36 Yards per game of total offense, he could likely play 3 or 4 positions well.

WR Jarius Wright, Arkansas 38 catches for 718 yards with four touchdowns and the debate is if he's the 2nd or 3rd best WR on the team.

Nate Eachus, Colgate RB SR Eachus, the 2010 Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year, had one of the best seasons for a running back in school history: 11 games 317 carries, 1871 yards, 5.9 ypc. and 21 TDs.

HB Tauren Poole, Tennessee- Senior who rushed for over 1100 yards last year in his first year as a starter behind an extremely young and inexperienced offensive line.

TE - David Duran, Coastal Carolina, Sr., was selected Preseason All-Big South Conference for the 2010 college football season as selected by the League's head football coaches and media panel. Duran makes the preseason All-Big South team after earning first team all-league honors in 2009. The junior led the conference tight ends in both receptions (19) and receiving yards (273), while ranking second on the team in both.

OT Mickey Okafor, TTU, Sr. He bounced around to every offensive line position except center without ever seeming to settle into a comfort zone. Of course, it’s hard to get comfortable when you never get a chance to put down roots. Okafor’s days as the tumbleweed of the offensive line, however, are definitively over as he made All-Big 12 second team (AP), All-Big 12 second team (San Antonio Express-News) and first team All-Big 12 Academic, while playing in 11 games (11 starts) all at right tackle on the offensive line.

OT/OG Evan Conrad, Southeast Missouri, JR Graded out at 91%, 77 knockdowns.

OG/C Chandler Rearden, Lenoir-Rhyne, Sr. Last season, Rearden became the first-ever player for Lenoir-Rhyne to win the Jacobs Blocking Trophy. The trophy is given annually to the top offensive lineman in the South Atlantic Conference. Rearden,a transfer from Liberty, is also a two-time First-Team All-SAC honoree (2008 and 2010) and was named to the All-Southeast Region First Team last year after helping the Bears lead NCAA Division II in rushing (319.5 ypg) en route to the team's first winning season in 16 years. He'll likely need to add 20+ lbs. and show he can play center to have a chance at the NFL.

Carlos Anderson, Northern Iowa, KR, Jr., He was the Missouri Valley Conference's 60-meter indoor champion in 2011. He puts his speed to good use all over the field - as a rusher, pass catcher and kickoff returner. Last season, he averaged 27.2 yards per return, including a pair of returns for touchdowns. He was named the All-Missouri Valley Football Conference first-team return specialist.

PK Matt Bevins, Liberty, The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-America first-team kicker in each of the past two seasons and Bevins has been consistent throughout his career, making 54-of-69 field-goal attempts (78.3 percent) and 106-of-109 extra-point attempts (97.2 percent).

DE/DT Ethan Johnson, Notre Dame Is almost the prototypical 5 Tech with great size (6'3 <sup>1/2</sup>" 303) good quickness and strength.

FS Kejuan Riley, Alabama St. Jr. In 2010 He made 63 tackles (32 solo), with one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and 13 passes defensed and has been named to the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) 2011 defensive back watch list. Riley was a first-team All-Southwestern Athletic Conference selection and a second team FCS All-America honoree in 2010 after tying for second in the nation with seven interceptions.

SS Janzen Jackson, Tennessee - A versatile junior DB that could probably play any position in the secondary. He took ta semester off to take care of some "personal problems." He and coaches believe he'll be back for the fall. A bit of an iffy in terms of msturity but if he can stay clean he has the ability to be the best safety in this class.

PR Dontrell Johnson, Murray State, Sr. A defensive back, Johnson averaged more on punt returns than kickoff returns last season - a scintillating 22.8 yards to lead the FCS. He returned a punt for a touchdown in back-to-back games against UT Martin and Jacksonville State. He has terrific instincts and is fearless against the approaching coverage. He was named to The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-America second team.

FS Ray Ray Armstrong Miami FL. Jr. - Of all the Cane prospects who are on the 2012 NFL Draft radar, Armstrong has the highest ceiling to become a lock for the 1st Round. He may be a very rangy player with a size and number reminiscent of the late GREAT Sean Taylor, but don’t be confused at all, because no one compares to Taylor. He is somewhat of a ball hawk, but the only knock on him is, that he does not dominate a game or change it from the secondary like he should.

SS Janzen Jackson, Tennessee - A versatile junior DB that could probably play any position in the secondary. He took ta semester off to take care of some "personal problems." He and coaches believe he'll be back for the fall. A bit of an iffy in terms of msturity but if he can stay clean he has the ability to be the best safety in this class.

PR Dontrell Johnson, Murray State, Sr. A defensive back, Johnson averaged more on punt returns than kickoff returns last season - a scintillating 22.8 yards to lead the FCS. He returned a punt for a touchdown in back-to-back games against UT Martin and Jacksonville State. He has terrific instincts and is fearless against the approaching coverage. He was named to The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-America second team.

3rd Team
Sr TB Lennon Creer 1,181 yards on 5.6 yards per carry, he's a north/south runner with some wiggle, think of Cadillac Williams in that he has speed and power.

RB Isaiah Pead, Cincinnati, Sr., In 2010 was selected All-BIG EAST Second Team by a vote of the league’s eight head football coaches. Pead rushed for 1,029 yards and six touchdowns on 157 attempts, despite missing almost two full games due to injury. He ranked third in the league in rushing, but led the conference for the second-straight year with his 6.6 yards per carry average. That average ranked him in the top-10 of all running backs nationally.

WR Damarlo Belcher, Indiana started all 12 games and led the Hoosiers with 78 receptions and 832 yards and 4 TDs. He received honorable mention All-Big Ten from the league's coaches and media, also a second team All-Big Ten selection by Phil Steele's magazine. Last year he was a bit in the shadow of Tandon Doss but has a similar potential to former Hoosier James Hardy or Plaxico Burress.

WR Orlandus Harris, EKU, Jr. 56 catches, 940 yards (16.8 ypc), 7 TD’s, also16 kicks returned for 331 yards, for good measure.

DE Monte Lewis, Jacksonville State, Sr. 29 tackles, 6.5 TFL, 3.0 sacks, 1 QBH, 1 FR

CB Logan Kerr Ashland In 32 games he has played in 32 games, he has 8 INTs, with 1 returned for a TD and 20 PBUs.

CB All-Great West football First Team for the 2008 college football season as voted on by the league head coaches. Jackson, a true freshman, is fourth on the Mustang defense in total tackles this season with 39 and also has intercepted a pair of passes along with nine pass breakups and two forced fumbles

FS Tylor Brock, Southeast Missouri, Jr. A Second-Team Sports Network and Phil Steele All-American, Brock tied a Southeast single-season record with six interceptions and ranked sixth on the team with 56 tackles. He returned two of his interceptions for touchdowns, one of which secured the Redhawks win at Eastern Illinois.

SS Brian Lindsay, AFA, JR

P David Harrington, ID St. Jr. 2010-44.35 yards per punt, his longest punt was 60 yards and he had 20 of 50 yards or longer while pinning opponents inside the 20 13 times. Harrington earned first-team All-Big Sky honors, he was named to the Walter Camp All-American team, also he was named to the first-team AP All-American team

Honorable Mention
RB Eric Breitenstein, Wofford, SR 11 games, 216 carries 1359 yards, 6.29 ypc., 20 TDs

Mike Harris, Murray State RB 5-11 200 Jr. Tulsa, Okla. 904 yards (6.5 ypc), 10 TD’s, 100.4 yds/game

RB Sam McGuffie, Rice 197 carries 883 yards, 4.5 ypc, 6 TDs

RB Cory McCaffrey, Portland State, Sr. 231 carries, 1287 yards, 10 TDs, 17 catches, 136 yards and 1 TD. At Sisters High, McCaffrey was the most prolific runner in Oregon high school history. Over three seasons, he rushed for 8,460 yards. The total broke the state record by more than 3,000 yards. His senior year, McCaffrey rushed for a single-season state record 2,925 yards and 46 six touchdowns. Once he got to PSU, McCaffrey was promptly moved to slot receiver in the run-and-shoot offense. As a true freshman in 2008, he played in five games, catching two passes. As a sophomore, he again played in only five games. That season he caught one pass.

DT Jamison Wadley, Jacksonville State Sr. Wadley finished the regular-season with 38 tackles from his position, 7.5 TFL, 2.0 sacks, 1 FR. The team co-captain was second on the squad with a pair of sacks and also returned a fumble 15 yards to score JSU’s first touchdown in the Gamecocks’ thrilling 49-48 double-overtime road win at Ole Miss to open the season.

CB Jeremy Caldwell, Eastern Kentucky, Sr. 32 tackles, 3 INT’s, 1 TD, 4 PBU, 7 PD, 1 FF

SS Patrick McClellan, Eastern Kentucky, Sr. 68 tackles, 2.0 TFL, 1 INT, 5 PBU, 6 PD

This is a great start to the list, Bill. One thing to consider is that we typically try to feature players in their final year of eligibility on the UA list, rather than players who are not likely to declare for the 2012 draft.

Some thoughts:
1) Ray Ray Armstrong might be more Overrated than Underappreciated in my mind. I see him on nearly every pre-season AA list, but, like you intimated, he's not the gamechanger that he should be.

2) Todd McShay has developed a bit of a man-crush on Ladarius Green lately, so I doubt he'll be very underappreciated this season.


Some players to consider for the list:

QB: Ryan Tannehill (TAMU), Dan Persa (Northwestern)
RB: Lennon Creer (La Tech), Isaiah Pead (Cincy)
FB: Ben Jorden (App St)
TE: Kavario Middleton (Montana), Shadrae King (Robt Morris)
WR: Damarlo Belcher (Indiana), Donovan Varner (Duke), Keshawn Martin (Michigan State)
OT: Markus Zusevics (Iowa), Mike VanDerMeulen (Toledo)
OG: Wayne Tribue (Temple)
OC: Scott Wedige (No. Illinois)
DE: Ryan Van Bergen (Michigan)
DT: Mike Daniels (Iowa)
OLB: Tyler Nielsen (Iowa), Danny Trevathan (Kentucky), Marcus McGraw (Houston)
MLB: Chris Marve (Vandy), Carmen Messina (New Mexico)
CB: Tashaun Gipson (Wyoming), Shaun Abuhoff (Dartmouth)
SS: Jose Gumbs (Monmouth), Sean Cattouse (Cal), Tavon Wilson (Illinois)
PK: Danny Hrapmann (So. Miss)
P: Brian Stahovich (SDSU)
ATH: Marquis Maze (Bama), Damaris Johnson (Tulsa)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Scouting the prospects in the Big 10, Ivy, and Northeast Leagues.

Tulsa's Johnson and Stohovich, Isiah Pead are all either 2nd team or HM in my mind, Persa will be HM, Varner might be 2nd team or HM, Messina is 1st team! Marve and McGraw are likely 2nd team. Gipson might be 2nd team or HM as is Kavario Middleton, the others I'd need to more of. Thanks for the imput!! ;)

Is the UA list a small-school (D-II and below?) sorry but I've been out of the loop a bit - I'll try to be more involved!

I'm not sure Jake Soy of NWMS is that underappreciated - has been touted since mid-way through his soph year as a NFL probable and he's a fixture on the post season All-Am lists.

Kerr is an excellent choice from Ashland. He is a FIERCE hitter and he has superior instincts on when to 'jump' a route and get a pick. Last year was a break-out for him.

QB Geno Smith WVU Jr. 2010: 241 of 372, 2763 yards, 24 TDs and 7 INTs. He might be the best pro of any WVU QB since Bulger or Hostetler. In the final victory at Rutgers, he completed 23 of 29 passes for a career-high 352 yards, the highest total since Marc Bulger threw for 429 in the 1998 Carquest Bowl. Against Connecticut Smith carried the ball 15 times for 64 yards, he's now Pat White but that showed he's not Oliver Luck either. In Dana Holgerson's offense he's likely to blossom; Holgerson was the OC at OK St. most recently and guided Houston's potent offense prior to that, after leaving 'The Dread Pirate Leach' at TTU, where he spent 8 years. Holgorsen came to Texas Tech from Wingate University in North Carolina, where he served as recruiting coordinator, quarterbacks and receivers coach and passing game coordinator. During his one season at Wingate in 1999, the school set numerous records and led the South Atlantic Conference in many offensive categories, while averaging 409 yards of total offense per game and 304.1 passing yards per game. The Wingate quarterback was an all-conference selection and a Harlan Hill semifinalist. One wide receiver was named freshman of the year, while another earned all-conference honors. Holgorsen was the quarterbacks and receivers coach at Mississippi College in Jackson, Miss., from 1996-98. MC won the 1997 American Southwest Conference in its first season in the league and averaged 432 yards per game. Holgorsen's offense will likely make Smith into a dark horse Heisman candidate.

RB Lance Dunbar, North Texas Sr. 274 carries 1553 yards, 13 TDs, 28 catches 332 yards 3 TDs. Durable and dcisive he gets all the yards here and a few extra. He’s a versatile runner, who can pound out yards between the tackles, get to edgein a blink, catch the ball out of the backfield, and pick up the blitz to protect the quarterback. Although 17 pounds thicker than when he arrived, he still possesses the giddy-up of a former track star. Finally, Dunbar runs with tremendous vision, finding a hole before it closes and darting past the first line of defense. Solid in the classroom, he’s a complete student-athlete.

RB Doug Martin, Boise St. 201 carries 1260 yards, 28 catches 338 yards and 2 TDs. The 5'8 <sup>3/4</sup>" 213 human pinball is called the 'Muscle Hamster, tough, well-balanced and he plays fast. He hits the hole with real purpose and ferocity, and he’s a mace coming through the line. His quickness and agility are what you’d expect from a smaller back, but his power is like a 230 pound back, he's like a faster version of Larry Brown of Kansas State and Washington in the NFL.

WR T.Y Hilton FIU-A former Freshman All-American, Hilton is already FIU's all-time leader in all-purpose yards with 5,602. This season, Hilton led the Panthers with 59 catches for 848 yards and five touchdowns. He also ran for 282 yards and four scores. Perhaps the biggest game of his career came against ULM on Nov. 6, when he amassed 291 all-purpose yards and scored four touchdowns, two on receptions, one rushing and one on a kick return.

TE Ladarius Green ULL was one of eight Semifinalists for the John Mackey Award. He led all Mackey semifinalists in receiving yards-per-game (79.4), receiving yards-per-catch (18.0) and touchdowns (7). Green missed two games due to injury, but still led all tight ends nationally in total receiving yards (794) and games with 80 yards or more receiving (7). He made a catch of 20 yards or longer in all but one game he played this season. The junior tight end was double-teamed on over 90% of his routes and endured three different starting quarterbacks this season, but caught at least one touchdown pass from each. He led the Sun Belt with four 100-yard receiving games and in yards-per-reception (18.0).

OT Mitchell Schwartz, Sr., California, was selected All Pac-10 Second Team for the 2010 college football season as selected by the Pac-10 head football coaches. Schwartz started all 12 games in his first full season at left tackle and has now started all 38 contests possible over the first three seasons of his collegiate career.

OT David Pickard, SIU He is a good athlete and may be able to play multiple line positions.

OG Lonnie Edwards, TTU, Sr. All-Big 12 second team (Coaches)... All-Big 12 second team (Phil Steele)... All-Big 12 second team (Rivals.com)... All-Big 12 second team (San Antonio Express-News)... All-Big 12 second team (Dallas Morning News), played in 13 games (13 starts) all at left guard on the offensive line. He's so strong he once squatted 600 lbs., while a HS senior.

OG Slade Adams, Tennessee Tech Adams has a large frame, is outstanding at both pass protection and run blocking, Adams returns in 2011 for his third season in the lineup.

C Chris Powers is undersized at 272 but preseason second team All-Big Sky selection by the Phil
Steele College Football Preview Magazine and was All-Big Sky Football First Team for the 2010 college football season. Powers despite his lack of size has good leg-drive, technique and a high football IQ.

KR Jeremy Caldwell, Eastern Kentucky, KR/PR, Sr.A two-time All-Ohio Valley Conference first-team cornerback who had seven interceptions as a sophomore in 2009, Caldwell also is lights out on kickoff and punt returns. Last season, Caldwell was second to Delaware State's Larrone Moore with a 33.7-yard kickoff return average, including two returns for touchdowns, and averaged 15 yards on 13 punt returns (which would have ranked fifth nationally if he had one more return), with one touchdown. He is explosive once he gets the ball in his hands.

PK Zach Brown, Portland State, Jr., An excellent athlete, Brown is kicking his way toward a possible NFL future. On field goals, he is an impressive 15 of 18 from 40-49 yards through two seasons. His career long is a 53-yard field goal. He was 18 of 26 overall last season - matching his school record for field goals in a season - and was perfect on extra points, which lifted him to 44-for-44 through two seasons. Brown kicked field goals of 42, 53 and 47 yards at Arizona State, providing the only Viking points in a 54-9 loss. His 53-yarder tied for the second-longest in Portland State history. He also had three kickoffs that averaged 64.8 yards in length.

Defense
DE Grant Hunter Sr. Butler, At only 6'2 <sup>1/4 </sup>" 239 he will likely be an OLB at the next level, but he has 25.5 sacks in 29 career games he is a bit like former CDS prospect poster Wyatt Gayer.

DE/OLB Mario Kurn, USD is the top FCS player in quarterback sacks this season (17 for -118 yards) and ranks second in tackles for loss (27 for -141 yards). Through 11 games he totaled a team-best 66 tackles (38 solo), along with chipping in 2 forced fumbles, 7 quarterback hurries, 5 pass break-ups and 5 pass deflections. At 6'1 <sup>1/2</sup>" 223 he is most likely a 4-3 WLB at the next level.

DE Julian Miller WVU Miller played in 13 games and started 12, he was named first team all-BIG EAST by ESPN.com and second team by rivals.com and Phil Steele and was tied for No. 4 in BIG EAST in tackles for loss and sacks, earning WVU defensive player of the game honors against USF and Louisville, was the sixth-leading tackler with 54 tackles, including 28 solo stops, nine sacks, a team-leading 14 tackles for loss, one forced fumble and three pass breakups

LB Audie Cole, NC State 2010: Cole tied for the team lead in tackles with 97, his 10.5 tackles for loss ranked third among Wolfpack players playing the SAM linebacker spot, he moved to middle linebacker in the spring and will start there in 2011. Cole was a quarterback and defensive back during his high school career at Monroe. He was productive, passing for 3,285 yards and 35 touchdowns and running for 21 TDs in his career. But he also was an excellent defensive player. In fact, he is one of those fantastic maniacs who enjoy hitting people more than playing quarterback.
He may have had the skills to be a QB in college, but Cole relished contact. He wanted to play a position where he could deliver punishing hits.

LB Brandon Linsey Pitt He led the league in tackles for loss and finished second in sacks in 2010. Will get a chance to make all kinds of plays from new hybrid "Panther" linebacker position.

FS Eddie Whitley, VPI Has started at free safety can play free safety, rover, either cornerback spot or in the nickel package if needed, he started 12 games, recording 73 tackles, including four for loss, also has six pass breakups, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.

SS Matt Johnson EWU, Johnson can play in the box and he's 3rd in school history in interceptions with 15. He's entering his fourth season as a starter, having earned All-Big Sky first-team and The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-America third-team honors for the FCS champion Eagles last season. In 15 games, he totaled 105 tackles with five interceptions and eight other pass breakups, adding two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He is a physical presence who is instinctive.

2nd Team
QB Casey Therriault, Jackson State, Therriault, led Grand Rapids CC to the National Junior College Athletic Association championship game in 2009 and a 9-1 record; in fall 2007, he played for College of the Sequoias, a two-year community college in California's San Joaquin Valley, where he backed up Arcelona Hall, who attended Memphis University. In 2010 he was 255 of 437, a 58.4%, 3436yards, 31TDs-8 INTS. After his involvement, along with four others, in the beating death of Jonathan "Jono" Krystiniak outside a downtown Grand Rapids bar; Therriault pleaded guilty to manslaughter and spent six months in Kent County Jail, since then he has been a changed young man.

WR/WCQB Mike Brown Libery The Armanti Edwards? 346.36 Yards per game of total offense, he could likely play 3 or 4 positions well.

WR Brian Quick

Nate Eachus, Colgate RB SR Eachus, the 2010 Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year, had one of the best seasons for a running back in school history: 11 games 317 carries, 1871 yards, 5.9 ypc. and 21 TDs. Eachus' 21 rushing and 22 total touchdowns also led the nation as he topped the FCS with 12.0 points per game. He reminds me of former Yale and Dolphins RB Rich Diana.

HB Tauren Poole, Tennessee- Senior who rushed for over 1100 yards last year in his first year as a starter behind an extremely young and inexperienced offensive line.

TE - David Duran, Coastal Carolina, Sr., was selected Preseason All-Big South Conference for the 2010 college football season as selected by the League's head football coaches and media panel. Duran makes the preseason All-Big South team after earning first team all-league honors in 2009. The junior led the conference tight ends in both receptions (19) and receiving yards (273), while ranking second on the team in both.

OT Mickey Okafor, TTU, Sr. He bounced around to every offensive line position except center without ever seeming to settle into a comfort zone. Of course, it’s hard to get comfortable when you never get a chance to put down roots. Okafor’s days as the tumbleweed of the offensive line, however, are definitively over as he made All-Big 12 second team (AP), All-Big 12 second team (San Antonio Express-News) and first team All-Big 12 Academic, while playing in 11 games (11 starts) all at right tackle on the offensive line.

OT/OG Evan Conrad, Southeast Missouri, JR Graded out at 91%, 77 knockdowns, Conrad is Southeast's lone returning starter on the offensive line this season. Conrad started all 12 games at left tackle and earned First-Team All-OVC honors as a sophomore last year. He has made 21-consecutive starts between the tackle spots.

Carlos Anderson, Northern Iowa, KR, Jr., He was the Missouri Valley Conference's 60-meter indoor champion in 2011. He puts his speed to good use all over the field - as a rusher, pass catcher and kickoff returner. Last season, he averaged 27.2 yards per return, including a pair of returns for touchdowns. He was named the All-Missouri Valley Football Conference first-team return specialist.

PK Matt Bevins, Liberty, The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-America first-team kicker in each of the past two seasons and Bevins has been consistent throughout his career, making 54-of-69 field-goal attempts (78.3 percent) and 106-of-109 extra-point attempts (97.2 percent).

DE/DT Ethan Johnson, Notre Dame Is almost the prototypical 5 Tech with great size (6'3 <sup>1/2</sup>" 303) good quickness and strength. Requires a double team systematically but double teams do tend to take him out of the play. 4 year started on the Irish and totaled 34 tackles on the season, including six tackles for loss (21 yards), five of which were for sacks (19 yards), was second on the team in sacks and fourth in tackles for loss.

FS Ray Ray Armstrong Miami FL. Jr. - Of all the Cane prospects who are on the 2012 NFL Draft radar, Armstrong has the highest ceiling to become a lock for the 1st Round. He may be a very rangy player with a size and number reminiscent of the late GREAT Sean Taylor, but don’t be confused at all, because no one compares to Taylor. He is somewhat of a ballhawk, but the only knock I have on him is, that he does not dominate a game or change it from the secondary like he should.

SS Janzen Jackson, Tennessee - A versatile junior DB that could probably play any position in the secondary. He took ta semester off to take care of some "personal problems." He and coaches believe he'll be back for the fall. A bit of an iffy in terms of msturity but if he can stay clean he has the ability to be the best safety in this class.

PR Dontrell Johnson, Murray State, Sr. A defensive back, Johnson averaged more on punt returns than kickoff returns last season - a scintillating 22.8 yards to lead the FCS. He returned a punt for a touchdown in back-to-back games against UT Martin and Jacksonville State. He has terrific instincts and is fearless against the approaching coverage. He was named to The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-America second team.

Honorable Mention
QB Thomas DeMarco started all 11 games in 2010 and 22 consecutive games dating to the 2009 season at quarterback as a co-Captain was on the Walter Payton Watch List, ranked seventh nationally in total offense averaging 289.00 yards per game.

He is explosive once he gets the ball in his hands.

Defense
DE Grant Hunter Sr. Butler, At only 6'2 <sup>1/4 </sup>" 239 he will likely be an OLB at the next level, but he has 25.5 sacks in 29 career games he is a bit like former CDS prospect poster Wyatt Gayer.

DE/DT Ethan Johnson, Notre Dame Is almost the prototypical 5 Tech with great size (6'3 <sup>1/2</sup>" 303) good quickness and strength.

DT Alameda Ta'amu, Washington Listed at 348 pounds when he signed with UW, he was more like 380.Despite his less-than-optimum shape, he was a regular on the line as a true freshman in 2008, after which Tyrone Willingham was fired and Steve Sarkisian hired. Getting Ta'amu in condition was among the first goals for Sarkisian and staff, he started all 13 games at one defensive tackle position and earned honorable mention All-Pac-10. He announced what he could be in a terrific game in the Holiday Bowl, when he had a 10-yard sack and also a 14-yard fumble return early in the game; he was at 337 for the Holiday Bowl, when he turned in the play that may have most defined UW's upset, blasting through the Nebraska offensive line to force a holding penalty in the end zone and won the L. Wait Rising Lineman of the Year Award at the team's postseason awards banquet.

DT Emory Attig, was named to the 13th annual Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association (FCS ADA) Academic All-Star Team on Tuesday.

LB Rocco DeLorenzo In 10 games he had 22 solo tackles 77 assists, 6 TFL, 1 sack, 2 INTS, 2 PBU 1 FR, he is one of the better MLB prospects in D II.

LB Cliff Exama, Grambling, Sr. With his impressive 106 total tackles (61 solos) and 2.5 sacks last season, opponents have to know where Exama is on the field. He is a play-making linebacker who knows how to come up and stop the run very quickly.

CB Travaun Nixon, UTEP led the Miners in interceptions with four for 140 yards ... third on the team, and second among DBs, with 75 tackles ... also registered four tackles for losses and eight pass break-ups.

FS Ray Ray Armstrong Miami FL. Jr. - Of all the Cane prospects who are on the 2012 NFL Draft radar, Armstrong has the highest ceiling to become a lock for the 1st Round. He may be a very rangy player with a size and number reminiscent of the late GREAT Sean Taylor, but don’t be confused at all, because no one compares to Taylor. He is somewhat of a ball hawk, but the only knock on him is, that he does not dominate a game or change it from the secondary like he should.

SS Janzen Jackson, Tennessee - A versatile junior DB that could probably play any position in the secondary. He took ta semester off to take care of some "personal problems." He and coaches believe he'll be back for the fall. A bit of an iffy in terms of msturity but if he can stay clean he has the ability to be the best safety in this class.

PR Dontrell Johnson, Murray State, Sr. A defensive back, Johnson averaged more on punt returns than kickoff returns last season - a scintillating 22.8 yards to lead the FCS. He returned a punt for a touchdown in back-to-back games against UT Martin and Jacksonville State. He has terrific instincts and is fearless against the approaching coverage. He was named to The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-America second team.

3rd Team

Sr TB Lennon Creer 1,181 yards on 5.6 yards per carry, he's a north/south runner with some wiggle, think of Cadillac Williams in that he has speed and power.

RB Isaiah Pead, Cincinnati, Sr., In 2010 was selected All-BIG EAST Second Team by a vote of the league’s eight head football coaches. Pead rushed for 1,029 yards and six touchdowns on 157 attempts, despite missing almost two full games due to injury. He ranked third in the league in rushing, but led the conference for the second-straight year with his 6.6 yards per carry average. That average ranked him in the top-10 of all running backs nationally.

WR Damarlo Belcher, Indiana started all 12 games and led the Hoosiers with 78 receptions and 832 yards and 4 TDs. He received honorable mention All-Big Ten from the league's coaches and media, also a second team All-Big Ten selection by Phil Steele's magazine. Last year he was a bit in the shadow of Tandon Doss but has a similar potential to former Hoosier James Hardy or Plaxico Burress.

WR Chris Summers, Liberty The lanky and sure-handed target had 76 snags for 1081 yards and 15 TDS.

DE Monte Lewis, Jacksonville State, Sr. 29 tackles, 6.5 TFL, 3.0 sacks, 1 QBH, 1 FR

P David Harrington, ID St. Jr. 2010-44.35 yards per punt, his longest punt was 60 yards and he had 20 of 50 yards or longer while pinning opponents inside the 20 13 times. Harrington earned first-team All-Big Sky honors, he was named to the Walter Camp All-American team, also he was named to the first-team AP All-American team

Honorable Mention
QB Austin Davis Earned second team All-Conference USA honors and was a C-USA All-Academic Team, the numbers Davis has compiled in his Southern Miss football career are also quite impressive, including 7,191 passing yards and 51 touchdown passes in 30 games. In 2010 he led the Golden Eagles to an 8-4 regular-season record after missing most of the 2009 campaign with a foot injury. He needs just two touchdown passes to become the school’s all-time leader in that category. He's Posted an 18-12 record as a starter, was 278-442, with 3103 yards, (63.2%) 20 TD’s and 6 INT’s. He also was the team’s third leading rusher. A walk-on to the program, Davis redshirted the 2007 season and became the starter a year later. He ended the year with a combined total of 15 school records for both game and single-season marks and led the Golden Eagles to a bowl game victory in the 2008 New Orleans Bowl. He was selected to the Freshman All-Conference USA team and earned a Freshman All-American honorable mention by CollegeFootballNews.com for 2008. He reminds me of former Boise QB Jared Zabransky.

RB Cory McCaffrey, Portland State, Sr. 231 carries, 1287 yards, 10 TDs, 17 catches, 136 yards and 1 TD. At Sisters High, McCaffrey was the most prolific runner in Oregon high school history. Over three seasons, he rushed for 8,460 yards. The total broke the state record by more than 3,000 yards. His senior year, McCaffrey rushed for a single-season state record 2,925 yards and 46 six touchdowns. Once he got to PSU, McCaffrey was promptly moved to slot receiver in the run-and-shoot offense. As a true freshman in 2008, he played in five games, catching two passes. As a sophomore, he again played in only five games. That season he caught one pass.

Orlandus Harris, EKU, Jr. 56 catches, 940 yards (16.8 ypc), 7 TD’s, also16 kicks returned for 331 yards, for good measure.

WR Kelvin Bolden, USM, Bolden senior took advantage in his first year out of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. Using tremendous speed to offset a wispy frame, he caught 46 passes for a team-high 722 yards and six touchdowns.

WR Jarius Wright, Arkansas 38 catches for 718 yards with four touchdowns and the debate is if he's the 2nd or 3rd best WR on the team.

DT Jamison Wadley, Jacksonville State Sr. Wadley finished the regular-season with 38 tackles from his position, 7.5 TFL, 2.0 sacks, 1 FR. The team co-captain was second on the squad with a pair of sacks and also returned a fumble 15 yards to score JSU’s first touchdown in the Gamecocks’ thrilling 49-48 double-overtime road win at Ole Miss to open the season.

<p class="ecxMsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif';">QB Geno Smith WVU Jr. 2010: 241 of 372, 2763 yards, 24 TDs and 7 INTs. He might be the best pro of any WVU QB since Bulger or Hostetler. In the final victory at Rutgers, he completed 23 of 29 passes for a career-high 352 yards, the highest total since Marc Bulger threw for 429 in the 1998 Carquest Bowl. Against Connecticut Smith carried the ball 15 times for 64 yards, he's no Pat White but that showed he's not Oliver Luck either. In Dana Holgerson's offense he's likely to blossom; Holgerson was the OC at OK St. most recently and guided Houston's potent offense prior to that, after leaving 'The Dread Pirate Leach' at TTU, where he spent 8 years. Holgorsen came to Texas Tech from Wingate University in North Carolina, where he served as recruiting coordinator, quarterbacks and receivers coach and passing game coordinator. During his one season at Wingate in 1999, the school set numerous records and led the South Atlantic Conference in many offensive categories, while averaging 409 yards of total offense per game and 304.1 passing yards per game. The Wingate quarterback was an all-conference selection and a Harlan Hill semifinalist. One wide receiver was named freshman of the year, while another earned all-conference honors. Holgorsen was the quarterbacks and receivers coach at Mississippi College in Jackson, Miss., from 1996-98. MC won the 1997 American Southwest Conference in its first season in the league and averaged 432 yards per game. Holgorsen's offense will likely make Smith into a dark horse Heisman candidate. </span></p>

Durable and decisive he gets all the yards here and a few extra. He’s a versatile runner, who can pound out yards between the tackles, get to edge in a blink, catch the ball out of the backfield, and pick up the blitz to protect the quarterback. Although 17 pounds thicker than when he arrived, he still possesses the giddy-up of a former track star. Finally, Dunbar runs with tremendous vision, finding a hole before it closes and darting past the first line of defense. Solid in the classroom, he’s a complete student-athlete.</span></p>

He squats 295 pounds and held the team high in the hang clean at 360 before teammate B.J. Hayes beat him by five pounds. Summers is now a slender but solid target who can haul in a short pass, shake off defenders and rack or RAC. He refuses to be denied on jump balls. Summers must still work on staying low in and out of his breaks, but he is likely at least a mid-round prospect and he should be in discussion for the Payton Award before the season is over if he keeps up this pace.</span></p>

He might be the best pro of any WVU QB since Bulger or Hostetler. In the final victory at Rutgers, he completed 23 of 29 passes for a career-high 352 yards, the highest total since Marc Bulger threw for 429 in the 1998 Carquest Bowl. Against Connecticut Smith carried the ball 15 times for 64 yards, he's now Pat White but that showed he's not Oliver Luck either. In Dana Holgerson's offense he's likely to blossom; Holgerson was the OC at OK St. most recently and guided Houston's potent offense prior to that, after leaving 'The Dread Pirate Leach' at TTU, where he spent 8 years. Holgorsen came to Texas Tech from Wingate University in North Carolina, where he served as recruiting coordinator, quarterbacks and receivers coach and passing game coordinator. During his one season at Wingate in 1999, the school set numerous records and led the South Atlantic Conference in many offensive categories, while averaging 409 yards of total offense per game and 304.1 passing yards per game. The Wingate quarterback was an all-conference selection and a Harlan Hill semifinalist. One wide receiver was named freshman of the year, while another earned all-conference honors. Holgorsen was the quarterbacks and receivers coach at Mississippi College in Jackson, Miss., from 1996-98. MC won the 1997 American Southwest Conference in its first season in the league and averaged 432 yards per game. Holgorsen's offense will likely make Smith into a dark horse Heisman candidate. </span></p>

<p class="ecxMsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif';">QB Geno Smith WVU Jr. 2010: 241 of 372, 2763 yards, 24 TDs and 7 INTs. He might be the best pro of any WVU QB since Bulger or Hostetler. In the final victory at Rutgers, he completed 23 of 29 passes for a career-high 352 yards, the highest total since Marc Bulger threw for 429 in the 1998 Carquest Bowl. Against Connecticut Smith carried the ball 15 times for 64 yards, he's now Pat White but that showed he's not Oliver Luck either. In Dana Holgerson's offense he's likely to blossom; Holgerson was the OC at OK St. most recently and guided Houston's potent offense prior to that, after leaving 'The Dread Pirate Leach' at TTU, where he spent 8 years. Holgorsen came to Texas Tech from Wingate University in North Carolina, where he served as recruiting coordinator, quarterbacks and receivers coach and passing game coordinator. During his one season at Wingate in 1999, the school set numerous records and led the South Atlantic Conference in many offensive categories, while averaging 409 yards of total offense per game and 304.1 passing yards per game. The Wingate quarterback was an all-conference selection and a Harlan Hill semifinalist. One wide receiver was named freshman of the year, while another earned all-conference honors. Holgorsen was the quarterbacks and receivers coach at Mississippi College in Jackson, Miss., from 1996-98. MC won the 1997 American Southwest Conference in its first season in the league and averaged 432 yards per game. Holgorsen's offense will likely make Smith into a dark horse Heisman candidate. </span></p>

Durable and decisive he gets all the yards here and a few extra. He’s a versatile runner, who can pound out yards between the tackles, get to edge in a blink, catch the ball out of the backfield, and pick up the blitz to protect the quarterback. Although 17 pounds thicker than when he arrived, he still possesses the giddy-up of a former track star. Finally, Dunbar runs with tremendous vision, finding a hole before it closes and darting past the first line of defense. Solid in the classroom, he’s a complete student-athlete.</span></p>

The 5'8 3/4&quot; 213 human pinball is called the 'Muscle Hamster, tough, well-balanced and he plays fast. He hits the hole with real purpose and ferocity, and he’s a mace coming through the line. His quickness and agility are what you’d expect from a smaller back, but his power is like a 230 pound back, he's like a faster version of Larry Brown of Kansas State and Washington in the NFL.</span></p>

Green missed two games due to injury, but still led all tight ends nationally in total receiving yards (794) and games with 80 yards or more receiving (7). He made a catch of 20 yards or longer in all but one game he played this season. The junior tight end was double-teamed on over 90% of his routes and endured three different starting quarterbacks this season, but caught at least one touchdown pass from each. He led the Sun Belt with four 100-yard receiving games and in yards-per-reception (18.0). </span></p>

Acknowledging the fact that a Ranger is a more elite soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country expects me to move farther, faster and fight harder than any other soldier.
Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be. One hundred percent and then some.
Gallantly will I show the world that I am a specially selected and well trained soldier. My courtesy to superior officers, my neatness of dress and care for equipment shall set the example for others to follow.
Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.
Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the Ranger objective and complete the mission, though I be the lone survivor.

OK... I'm completely lost on this one now. Bill, can you post the draft UA teams with just the positions and players (without the additional prose)? I can't keep track of who your nominees are at this point.

The long awaited Final Draft is Finished!

1st Team

QB Geno Smith WVU Jr. 2010: 241 of 372, 2763 yards, 24 TDs and 7 INTs. He might be the best pro of any WVU QB since Bulger or Hostetler.  In the final victory at Rutgers, he completed 23 of 29 passes for a career-high 352 yards, the highest total since  Marc Bulger threw for 429 in the 1998 Carquest Bowl.  Against Connecticut Smith carried the ball 15 times for 64 yards, he's no Pat White but that showed he's not Oliver Luck either.  In Dana Holgerson's offense he's likely to blossom; Holgerson was the OC at OK St. most recently and guided Houston's potent offense prior to that, after leaving 'The Dread Pirate Leach' at TTU, where he spent 8 years. Holgorsen came to Texas Tech from Wingate University in North Carolina, where he served as recruiting coordinator, quarterbacks and receivers coach and passing game coordinator. During his one season at Wingate in 1999, the school set numerous records and led the South Atlantic Conference in many offensive categories, while averaging 409 yards of total offense per game and 304.1 passing yards per game. The Wingate quarterback was an all-conference selection and a Harlan Hill semifinalist. One wide receiver was named freshman of the year, while another earned all-conference honors.  Holgorsen was the quarterbacks and receivers coach at Mississippi College in Jackson, Miss., from 1996-98. MC won the 1997 American Southwest Conference in its first season in the league and averaged 432 yards per game. Holgorsen's offense will likely make Smith into a dark horse Heisman candidate.
 
RB Lance Dunbar, North Texas Sr. 274 carries 1553 yards, 13 TDs, 28 catches 332 yards 3 TDs.  Durable and decisive he gets all the yards here and a few extra. He’s a versatile runner, who can pound out yards between the tackles, get to edge in a blink, catch the ball out of the backfield, and pick up the blitz to protect the quarterback. Although 17 pounds thicker than when he arrived, he still possesses the giddy-up of a former track star. Finally, Dunbar runs with tremendous vision, finding a hole before it closes and darting past the first line of defense. Solid in the classroom, he’s a complete student-athlete.
 
RB Doug Martin, Boise St. 201 carries 1260 yards, 28 catches 338 yards and 2 TDs. The 5'8 ¾” 213 human pinball is called the 'Muscle Hamster, tough, well-balanced and he plays fast. He hits the hole with real purpose and ferocity, and he’s a mace coming through the line.  His quickness and agility are what you’d expect from a smaller back, but his power is like a 230 pound back, he's like a faster version of Larry Brown of Kansas State and Washington in the NFL.
 
WR T.Y Hilton FIU-A former Freshman All-American, Hilton is already FIU's all-time leader in all-purpose yards with 5,602. This season, Hilton led the Panthers with 59 catches for 848 yards and five touchdowns. He also ran for 282 yards and four scores. Perhaps the biggest game of his career came against ULM on Nov. 6, when he amassed 291 all-purpose yards and scored four touchdowns, two on receptions, one rushing and one on a kick return.
 
WR Joel Bradford, Chattanooga, Sr. After catching 81 passes for 1,284 yards and eight touchdowns last season, he returns as one top WRs in the nation. He has thrived since moving to wide receiver from free safety. Bradford was a backup at the position and a special teams performer during the first half of the season, then played extensively over the final six games, in 2010 he returned to wide receiver for his junior season, and set the Mocs' single-season record for receiving yards as well as the single- game record with 254 receiving yards against Eastern Kentucky, before breaking it again with 274 yards against Furman. They were the two highest single-game totals in the FCS last season. He is a Johnny Morton-type physically who has reportedly timed as fast as 4.45 in the 40.

TE Brandon Barden, Vanderbilt Sr. Barden is one of 34 players named to the 2011 Mackey Award preseason watch list, Barden is the conference's active leader among tight ends in receptions and receiving yards. He enters his final season as a Commodore with 91 career catches, good for 991 yards and eight touchdowns. As a junior, Barden earned second team All-SEC honors from the Associated Press by pacing the Commodores with 34 receptions and 425 receiving yards in 2010. the senior has been a big target over the middle  and a capable blocker at his position. He's Vanderbilt's most reliable option down field and a steadying force on an often scattered squad. He'll be the team's primary option at TE as long as he can stay healthy.

OT Mitchell Schwartz, Sr., California, was selected All Pac-10 Second Team for the 2010 college football season as selected by the Pac-10 head football coaches. Schwartz started all 12 games in his first full season at left tackle and has now started all 38 contests possible over the first three seasons of his collegiate career. He is a blue-collar type of tough, RT who plays until the echo of the whistle and finishes his blocks. He is a work-in-progress as a pass blocker, but it's unlikely he'll ever be able to mirror elite edge rushers; however he has many other strengths in his game.

OT David Pickard, SIU He is a good athlete and may be able to play multiple line positions, as a bonus he's a crime-stopper, he and a teammate foiled a crime on the EL Train, before the thief could make it to the exit, but however, Pickard pancaked him in a manner befitting his status as an All-American left tackle. What stands out to Southern Illinois’ coaches about Pickard is his technical ability. Because he didn’t begin playing competitive football until he was a freshman in high school, he never had time to pick up bad habits. He was taught the right way from the start. 2010: Pickard was named Second Team ESPN Academic All-American, to the FCS Athletics Directors Association Academic All-Star Team and was one of eight finalists for its $5,000 postgraduate scholarship, as well as named Second Team All-MVFC, MVFC All-Academic First Team and received the MVFC Commissioner's Academic Excellence Award, which requires a minimum GPA of 3.2 for the previous two semesters.

OG Lonnie Edwards, TTU, Sr. An All-Big XII Second Team member, Lonnie Edwards is entering his third season as a starter he has made: All-Big 12 second team (Coaches), All-Big 12 second team (Phil Steele), All-Big 12 second team (Rivals.com), All-Big 12 second team (San Antonio Express-News), All-Big 12 second team (Dallas Morning News), he's played in 13 games (13 starts) all at left guard on the offensive line.  He's so strong he once squatted 600 lbs., while a HS senior!
OG Amini Silatolu, Midwestern State, Sr. In 2010 he was an AP Little, AFCA All-American who anchored MSU's front unit which paved the way for the Lone Star Conference's best rushing attack which ranked 16th in all of NCAA Division II with 213.5 yards per game. Silatolu was also an LSC South Division Co-Offensive Lineman of the Year and a first-team all-division pick after helping the Mustangs to an 8-4 finish this season including an appearance in the 2010 Kanza Bowl. JUCO: Started 10 games at left tackle for San Joaquin Delta College. Silatolu earned California Community College Coaches' Association first-team All-America honors and named to Region II All-California first-team offense. Tabbed top lineman and was a 2008 first-team All-Valley Conference selection and 2008 JC Grid-Wire Preseason All American, he started for SJC as a freshman in 2007.
C Chris Powers, Eastern Washington, Sr., Powers is undersized at 289 but is a preseason second team All-Big Sky selection by the Phil Steele College Football Preview Magazine and was All-Big Sky Football First Team for the 2010 college football season. Powers despite his lack of size has good leg-drive, technique and a high football IQ.
KR Jeremy Caldwell, Eastern Kentucky, KR/PR, Sr. A two-time All-Ohio Valley Conference first-team corner back who had seven interceptions as a sophomore in 2009, Caldwell also is lights out on kickoff and punt returns. Last season, Caldwell was second to Delaware State's Larrone Moore with a 33.7-yard kickoff return average, including two returns for touchdowns, and averaged 15 yards on 13 punt returns (which would have ranked fifth nationally if he had one more return), with one touchdown. He is explosive once he gets the ball in his hands.
PK Zach Brown, Portland State, Jr., An excellent athlete, Brown is kicking his way toward a possible NFL future. On field goals, he is an impressive 15 of 18 from 40-49 yards through two seasons. His career long is a 53-yard field goal. He was 18 of 26 overall last season, which matched his school record for field goals in a season - and was perfect on extra points, which lifted him to 44-for-44 through two seasons. Brown kicked field goals of 42, 53 and 47 yards at Arizona State, providing the only Viking points in a 54-9 loss. His 53-yarder tied for the second-longest in Portland State history. He also had three kickoffs that averaged 64.8 yards in length.
Defense
DE Grant Hunter Sr. Butler, At only 6'2 ¼ " 239 DE Grant Hunter Sr. Butler, At his size he will likely be an OLB at the next level, but he has 25.5 sacks in 29 career games he is a bit like former CDS prospect poster Wyatt Gayer. He excels in the classroom as well as and is a Sociology & Criminology, major with a 3.39 GPA.
DE/OLB Mario Kurn, USD is the top FCS player in quarterback sacks this season (17 for -118 yards) and ranks second in tackles for loss (27 for -141 yards). Through 11 games he totaled a team-best 66 tackles (38 solo), along with chipping in 2 forced fumbles, 7 quarterback hurries, 5 pass break-ups and 5 pass deflections. At 6'1 ½ " 223 he is most likely a 4-3 WLB at the next level.
DT, Asa Chapman, Liberty, Sr. A highly sought recruit he had been attached to UVA and WVU prior to going to Fork Union and eventually ending up at Liberty. Chapman has impressive athletic ability and can do amazing things for a man his size, about 377 pounds, last year he was: a Phil Steele Postseason fourth-team All-America selection, Big South first-team all-conference honoree, VaSID all-state first-team selection. He started all 11 games, helped the Flames finish the season ranked No. 20 nationally in rushing defense which led the Big South and ranked No. 17 in the country in total defense (309.18 yards allowed per game) and No. 24 in scoring defense (20.81 points per game), he was third on the team in total tackles, posting a career-high 41 tackles which led all defensive linemen in tackles and ranked sixth in the Big South in tackles per game by defensive linemen. Chapman doubled his career tackle for a loss total, finishing the year with 3.5 tackles for a loss of eight yards during the season.

DT Alameda Ta'amu, Washington Listed at 348 pounds when he signed with UW, he was more like 380.Despite his less-than-optimum shape, he was a regular on the line as a true freshman in 2008, after which Tyrone Willingham was fired and Steve Sarkisian hired. Getting Ta'amu in condition was among the first goals for Sarkisian and staff; he started all 13 games at one defensive tackle position and earned honorable mention All-Pac-10. He announced what he could be in a terrific game in the Holiday Bowl, when he had a 10-yard sack and also a 14-yard fumble return early in the game; he was at 337 for the Holiday Bowl, when he turned in the play that may have most defined UW's upset, blasting through the Nebraska offensive line to force a holding penalty in the end zone and won the L. Wait Rising Lineman of the Year Award at the team's postseason awards banquet.
LB Audie Cole, NC State, Sr. 2010: Cole tied for the team lead in tackles with 97, his 10.5 tackles for loss ranked third among Wolfpack players playing the SAM linebacker spot, he moved to middle linebacker in the spring and will start there in 2011. Cole was a quarterback and defensive back during his high school career at Monroe. He was productive, passing for 3,285 yards and 35 touchdowns and running for 21 TDs in his career. But he also was an excellent defensive player. In fact, he is one of those fantastic maniacs who enjoy hitting people more than playing quarterback. He may have had the skills to be a QB in college, but Cole relished contact. He wanted to play a position where he could deliver punishing hits.
LB Cort Dennison, Washington, Sr. The senior projects as one of the leaders, the engine of the 2011 defense. The middle linebacker holds particular importance since the MLB usually calls the plays. In Dennison's case, he's also the only returning linebacker with much experience and will be called on to add a steadying influence to the one area of the defense. He was elected by teammates as one of four captains for this season, Dennison started 12 games last season, missing the first contest against Nebraska with a concussion, and ranked fourth in the Pac-10 in tackles last year with 92, including 8.5 for a loss. He also won the team's defensive weightlifting award at the end of the season. Dennison isn't the flashy of player, and does not project heading into his senior season to be as prized an NFL prospect as Mason Foster and Donald Butler the last two years, but he is very reliable and smart.

LB Brandon Lindsey Pitt, Sr. He led the league in tackles for loss and finished second in sacks in 2010. He will get a chance to make plenty of plays from new hybrid "Panther" linebacker position. Brandon Lindsey. Lindsey, now entering his senior year, broke out last season after he stepped in for the injured Greg Romeus. Lindsey had 51 tackles and 10 sacks last year on the opposite end of the line from Big East Defensive Player of the Year, Jabaal Sheard. With new Coach Todd Graham now in charge and a new system installed, Lindsey is looking to make 2011 an even bigger year.

CB Josh Robinson UCF, Jr., As a sophomore he was selected All-Conference USA First Team; Robinson was named to the Sporting News’ Freshman All-America team in 2009. Robinson was the nation’s leader in both interceptions (six) and passes defended (14) by a true freshman. He was the only true freshman ranked in the Top 100 nationally in passes defended. Robinson’s six interceptions, is a UCF freshman record.
CB Keon Robinson, Shepherd, Jr. Robinson had 46 TT and 8 INT in 2010, helped lead Shepherd to a WVIAC-record 12 victories and a spot in the national semifinals. He recorded a Division II-leading 10 interceptions and returned two for scores. Robinson also added 65 tackles and 11 pass breakups for a defense that topped the division in turnovers forced and interceptions.

FS Eddie Whitley, VPI Has started at free safety can play free safety, rover, either cornerback spot or in the nickel package if needed, he started 12 games, recording 73 tackles, including four for loss, also has six pass breakups, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.
SS Matt Johnson EWU, Johnson can play in the box and he's 3rd in school history in interceptions with 15. He's entering his fourth season as a starter, having earned All-Big Sky first-team and The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-America third-team honors for the FCS champion Eagles last season. In 15 games, he totaled 105 tackles with five interceptions and eight other pass breakups, adding two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He is a physical presence who is instinctive.
2nd Team
QB Dan Persa Northwestern, Called by one coach, "pound-for-pound is NU's most dynamic athlete" he is also one of the hardest-working players in the weight room, he was named NU's "Top Cat" two straight years, this honor is given to NU's most productive player in the weight room. Persa brings versatility to the quarterback position and Persa has an above average arm to go along with underrated running abilities, he has 684 net running yards in 31 games at NU. Last year Persa suffered a ruptured Achilles after throwing the game-winning touchdown pass to Demetrius Fields with 1:22 remaining. The junior completed 32 of 43 passes for 318 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Persa performed well enough in 2010, his first year as a college starter, to earn first-team All-Big Ten honors from the league’s coaches.
WR/WCQB Mike Brown Liberty The next Armanti Edwards? 346.36 Yards per game of total offense, he could likely play 3 or 4 positions well. He racked up 3,810 total offensive yards, setting a new program standard and posting the second-best single-season mark in Big South history. Brown also ranked No. 5 nationally in points responsible for (17.45 average per game). The quarterback factored into 32 of the team's 48 total touchdowns, as he threw 23 touchdowns and rushed for nine more. Brown repeated as Big South Offensive Player of the Year, becoming the second player in League history to garner the honor in consecutive seasons. Brown also ranked No. 8 nationally in passing efficiency (149.63) and No. 9 in passing yards per game (268.73). He finished the year with three 300-yard games and four games with three or more touchdown passes.
WR Brian Quick, Appalachian State, SR. With his size and athleticism, Quick compares quite well to 'Mr. Do Everything' Mike Brown. Impressively he only played one year of high school football (he played basketball) so he is still quite new to the game. Relative inexperience aside, Quick had a monster season for The Mountaineers; during which he averaged more than 18 yards per catch (by comparison, Brian Finneran averaged 14.5 yards per catch in his Walter Payton Award winning senior year at VU) and has scored 8 touchdowns
RB Nate Eachus, Colgate, Sr., Eachus, the 2010 Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year, had one of the best seasons for a running back in school history: 11 games 317 carries, 1871 yards, 5.9 ypc., and 21 TDs. Eachus' 21 rushing and 22 total touchdowns also led the nation as he topped the FCS with 12.0 points per game. He reminds me of former Yale and Dolphins RB Rich Diana.
HB Tauren Poole, Tennessee, Sr. Poole rushed for over 1100 yards last year in his first year as a starter behind an extremely young and inexperienced offensive line he added 31 catches 241 Yards, 4 TDs in the passing game. Frankly, it doesn't make sense why the Volunteers did not use him more often. Poole is 211 lbs., plays fast and has good leg drive.
TE David Duran, Coastal Carolina, Sr., Duran was selected Preseason All-Big South Conference for the 2010 college football season as selected by the League's head football coaches and media panel. Duran makes the preseason All-Big South team after earning first team all-league honors in 2009. The junior led the conference tight ends in both receptions (19) and receiving yards (273), while ranking second on the team in both.
OT Evan Conrad, Southeast Missouri, JR Graded out at 91%, 77 knockdowns, Conrad was a first-team all-OVC selection last season, the lone non-senior on an offensive line that helped Southeast rank among the nation's leaders in rushing yards and sacks allowed. Conrad was responsible for only two sacks from his left tackle spot. His height and length will likely necessitate a move to OG at the next level.
OT Terren Jones, Alabama State, Jr. Jones is a large player with big potential but he has not always maximized his talent, however if he improves his strength and footwork he could turn himself into a pro prospect. Despite his size he has good agility and natural movement skills.

OG Slade Adams, Tennessee, Tech, RS Jr. Adams has a large frame, is outstanding at both pass protection and run blocking, Adams returns in 2011 for his third season in the lineup. Adams might be the best offensive line prospect in the OVC. He was an All-OVC selection as a freshman, he will anchor a veteran offensive line in 2011, a weight-room warrior, Adams is one of the strongest players on the roster and he returns to the starting spot at right guard.

OG Matt Ruff, Appalachian State, Sr. Ruff in 2010 started every game at right guard for the second-straight year, he graded at 76 percent or higher in 10-of-12 graded performances and received 80+percent grades six times, finishing third on the team behind only all-conference tackles Daniel Kilgore (a fifth-round selection of the San Francisco 49ers in the 2011 NFL Draft) and Orry Frye with 32 knockdowns on the season. Ruff is very tenacious and has talent.

C Natiel Curry, Bethune-Cookman, Sr. A smart and athletic pivot man Curry helped lead a Wildcats offensive line that enabled Bethune-Cookman 426 yards of total offense per game, which was 12th in the nation and 38 points per game (2nd in the nation).

KR Carlos Anderson, Northern Iowa, Jr., He was the Missouri Valley Conference's 60-meter indoor champion in 2011. He puts his speed to good use all over the field - as a rusher, pass catcher and kickoff returner. Last season, he averaged 27.2 yards per return, including a pair of returns for touchdowns. He was named the All-Missouri Valley Football Conference first-team return specialist.
PK Matt Bevins, Liberty, The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-America first-team kicker in each of the past two seasons and Bevins has been consistent throughout his career, making 54-of-69 field-goal attempts (78.3 percent) and 106-of-109 extra-point attempts (97.2 percent).

He has now amassed 157 total tackles, including 40 TFLs in the last 2 seasons.

LB Joe Holland, Purdue, Sr. Holland likely has the most experience of any player on the defense with 36 career games, 35 of them as a starter. He was originally recruited as a safety, but moved to weak side linebacker where he has amassed 230 tackles, four sacks, and an interception. His versatility is evident in that he can get into the backfield as well as defend the pass. Also in 2010 he was a second team Academic All-American with a 3.99 grade-point average. He finished fourth last year on the Boilermakers with 73 tackles, including 7.5 for losses and 1.5 sacks.

CB Logan Kerr Ashland, Sr. In 32 games he has played in 32 games, he has 8 INTs, with 1 returned for a TD and 20 PBUs. Kerr is a very strong tackler for his size and plays faster than he runs. Kerr also possess very dependable instincts and is a leader on defense.

Boyett has been named to the 2011 Jim Thorpe Award Preseason Watch List.

SS Janzen Jackson, Tennessee, Sr. Jackson is a versatile junior DB that could probably play any position in the secondary. He posses vision, good speed, is a heavy hitter, and can play well enough man in coverage to fool somebody into thinking that he's actually a cornerback. He took a semester off to take care of some "personal problems." He and coaches believe he'll be back for the fall. A bit of an iffy in terms of maturity but if he can stay clean he has the ability to be the best safety in this class.
PR Dontrell Johnson, Murray State, Sr. A defensive back, Johnson averaged more on punt returns than kickoff returns last season, a scintillating 22.8 yards to lead the FCS. He returned a punt for a touchdown in back-to-back games against UT Martin and Jacksonville State. He has terrific instincts and is fearless against the approaching coverage.

3rd Team

QB Austin Davis Earned second team All-Conference USA honors and was a C-USA All-Academic Team, the numbers Davis has compiled in his Southern Miss football career are also quite impressive, including 7,191 passing yards and 51 touchdown passes in 30 games. In 2010 he led the Golden Eagles to an 8-4 regular-season record after missing most of the 2009 campaign with a foot injury. He needs just two touchdown passes to become the school’s all-time leader in that category. He's Posted an 18-12 record as a starter, was 278-442, with 3103 yards, (63.2%) 20 TDs and 6 INTs. He also was the team’s third leading rusher. A walk-on to the program, Davis red-shirted the 2007 season and became the starter a year later. He ended the year with a combined total of 15 school records for both game and single-season marks and led the Golden Eagles to a bowl game victory in the 2008 New Orleans Bowl. He was selected to the Freshman All-Conference USA team and earned a Freshman All-American honorable mention by CollegeFootballNews.com for 2008.  He reminds me of former Boise QB Jared Zabransky.

RB Isaiah Pead, Cincinnati, Sr., In 2010 was selected All-BIG EAST Second Team by a vote of the leagues eight head football coaches. Pead rushed for 1,029 yards and six touchdowns on 157 attempts, despite missing almost two full games due to injury. He ranked third in the league in rushing, but led the conference for the second-straight year with his 6.6 yards per carry average. That average ranked him in the top-10 of all running backs nationally.
TB Robbie Rouse, Fresno State, Jr. Rouse has proven ability to make defenders miss and enough speed to turn the corner. He averaged 5.5 yards per carry last season for the usually run-heavy Bulldogs. The durable sparkplug tailback Robbie Rouse with his 1,129 rushing yards and eight touchdowns last year, he might just be good enough to hold off highly recruited UCLA transfer Milton Knox.

WR Tim Benford, Tennessee Tech Sr. Benford Is a three-time first-team all-OVC pass catcher for the Golden Eagles, and has been named among the Top 10 receivers in the nation by The Sports Network. Heading into the 2011 season, Benford has numerous school records within his grasp and should once again be among the premier receivers in the Ohio Valley Conference. Benford received the prestigious Robert Hill Johnson award for the second time in his decorated career following the 2010 season. A three-year starter for the Golden Eagles and a three-time all-OVC selection, Benford also received the Robert Hill Johnson Award following his freshman season in 2008. Last year Benford led the team and ranked among OVC leaders with 50 catches for 812 yards and tied the school record with 10 touchdowns. His 812 yards ranks as the fourth-highest season in school history and his 50 receptions is the sixth-best season total.
WR Chris Summers, Liberty The lanky and sure-handed target had 76 snags for 1081 yards and 15 TDS. Summers is the type of player who can catch the ball at its highest point. He has come a long way since his freshman year when he could barely bench 135 pounds and struggled to maintain possession after contact. He now maxes out at 265. He squats 295 pounds and held the team high in the hang clean at 360 before teammate B.J. Hayes beat him by five pounds. Summers is still a slender target, but is now a solid target that can haul in a short pass, shake off defenders and rack or RAC. He refuses to be denied on jump balls. Summers must still work on staying low in and out of his breaks, but he is likely at least a mid-round prospect and he should be in discussion for the Payton Award before the season is over if he keeps up this pace.
TE Brian Riley, Northern Arizona, Sr. Riley has size, he is above average as a route runner and made all-conference two years ago; hopes to rebound. Riley had a good 2009 season, but only played in three games last year. With his hands and frame he should be a force this season.

OT Tom Compton, South Dakota, Sr. Compton has emerged as an NFL prospect during the USD’s last pro timing day. The 6-foot-6 lineman, a PhilSteele.com All-American and a 2010 All-Great West first-team selection, weighed in at 309 pounds and ran a strong 5.08 time in the 40-yard dash. Compton earned first team all-conference honors as a junior for the Coyotes. He also was named to the GWC Media First Team. He helped lead the Coyotes to average 150.9 rushing yards, 207.1 passing yards and 23.4 points per game a year ago. He has shown a real knack for hitting moving targets and is just growing into his frame; there is still room for him to fill out.

Lee’s numbers; runs a 4.9 forty, bench presses 360, power clean 370 and 560 squat. Lee is also an excellent baseball pitcher. An all-state performer, Lee has recorded nine wins in 2005 and 2006. Also broke the Georgia state power clean record in 2006 with a lift of 370 pounds. He also was a DH/1B on the Paladin baseball team. There is a small red flag, Lee ran out of the Travelers Rest Wal-Mart with a case of beer he allegedly didn't pay for.

OG Rodney Austin, Elon, Sr., Austin has next level talent, is tough but must become more fluid to become a hot prospect like D.J Hall. Austin has some of the same qualities that made Ben Grubbs so good, but not as polished or flexible.

OG Tim Franklin, Coastal Carolina, Sr. He was second team All-Big South by Phil Steele's Magazine, in 2010. Franklin is able to play OG as well as OT; Franklin truly excels as a drive blocker and pulls fairly well. He is likely an OG prospect at the next level, but he could perhaps play ORT as well.

C Bryan Boemer, SIU, Sr. Boemer is a rare college center who excels at blocking a one-on-one nose tackle and just pushing him back. Then getting down field and making another block on the same play. The powerful and aggressive All-Missouri Valley Football Conference first-team standout frees up the two guards next to him to block other defenders.

KR : Tyler Smith, Bucknell, Jr. Smith was named the league's opening week Special Team Player of the Week and was the team’s primary starter at running back and started final 10 games, he was also top kick returner.

Russell helped Georgia Southern reach the FCS semifinals last season, while totaling 71 tackles, including 18.5 for loss and eight sacks, with five quarterback hurries.

WR Thomas Mayo Concord, Sr. The website d2football.com has named Mayo to its All-American 2nd Team. After a season in which Mayo also earned 1st-Team All-American and 1st-Team All-Super Region 1 honors from Don Hansen's Football Gazette and a spot on the All-West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference 1st Team. Last fall, Mayo caught 74 passes for 1315 yards and 14 touchdowns. That's an average 17.8 yards per reception and 119.5 receiving yards per game – the 5th-best ypg in the nation and set a Concord record with 258 yards receiving in the Mountain Lions' 41-17 win over Fairmont State in the “Rotary Bowl” on November 6. Mayo caught nine passes that day, three of them for touchdowns. Over his last two seasons, Mayo has 146 receptions for 2683 yards and 25 touchdowns, which averages out to 122 receiving yards per game, 18.4 yards per catch and 1.1 touchdowns per game.
WR Jermaine Kearse, Sr. Kearse can be one of the nation’s best. He is on occasion, at least, he has the physical skills to dominate most Pac-12 cornerbacks, but he does struggle at times with consistency, not just individual drops but game-long absences, such as we saw a few times in 2010. Washington needs a full season from Kearse, who made 63 grabs for 1,005 yards and 12 scores last fall. He’s good enough to be an all-American when he plays his best.
WR Trevor Kennedy, Mercyhurst Sr. Kennedy in 2010 had 75 catches, 924 yards, 11 TDs, All-PSAC West First Team honors at both wide receiver and punt return specialist, he was named Daktronics Super Region 1 First Team honoree also at wide receiver and punt return specialist and finished as the Laker leader in several single-season categories, including receptions (75), receiving touchdowns (11), punt returns (29), punt return yards (501) and tied the punt return touchdown record (2) He had three games with 100 or more receiving yards, a receiving touchdown in all but five games and posted a catch or 20 or more yards in nine games.

As a sophomore, Wilson was named to the All-MEAC First Team and led the MEAC in receptions per game and reception yards per game. He also tied at fourth in scoring and finished fifth in all-purpose yards, 90.8 ypg.

WR Damarlo Belcher, Indiana started all 12 games and led the Hoosiers with 78 receptions and 832 yards and 4 TDs.  He received honorable mention All-Big Ten from the league's coaches and media, also a second team All-Big Ten selection by Phil Steele's magazine.  Last year he was a bit in the shadow of Tandon Doss but has a similar potential to former Hoosier James Hardy or Plaxico Burress.
WR Jarius Wright, Arkansas 38 catches for 718 yards with four touchdowns and the debate is if he's the 2nd or 3rd best WR on the team. Though he had an unimpressive first half of 2010, really came along after Greg Childs went down. He caught TD passes against Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, UTEP and Ohio State. He has room to improve. This senior is yet another threat for QB Tyler Wilson.
WR James Perry III, Gardner-Webb, Sr. Perry is a three-time All-Big South selection at wide receiver and became just the second receiver in League history to record at least 50 catches in a third consecutive season. Perry is currently on pace to shatter the Big South record for career receptions, with a full season remaining in 2011. He has hauled in 181 career passes for 2,082 yards, which ranks third in League history and fourth in GWU history.
TE Renty Collins Jackson State, Sr. Collins had 30 catches for 336 yards and 6 TDs, additionally he is a solid blocker and good after the catch. The JC transfer is still rough around the edges but his talent is apparent.
TE Tony Davis FVSU, Sr. Davis truly established himself as a force last year he recorded 50 receptions for 611 yards and two touchdowns. Davis is in the modern ‘seam-stretcher’ mold of the down the field TE. He will need to put on about 15 lbs. , he might be an H-back prospect at the next level.

OT Larry Wreidt West Liberty, Sr. In 2010 he earned second-team NCAA Division II All-America honors from the Don Hansen Football Gazette, was First-team All-Super Region One and first-team All-WVIAC offensive lineman, he started all 10 games at right tackle in his first season at West Liberty and was pivotal on offensive line which paved the way for a Hilltopper attack which led the nation in scoring and total offense for the second consecutive year. Wreidt is very large and powerful, with long levers, he’ll need to work on his feet and in the weight room, but he has all the building blocks.

C Seth Oxner, Arkansas-Monticello, Sr. Oxner is a Transfer from Arkansas and he showed his football IQ as the Hogs don't designate "left" and "right" tackles and instead flip them depending on the formation and play call, Oxner started all 13 games for Arkansas in 2009.

KR Laron Scott, GA Southern, Sr. Scott is a very fine CB and is his school’s record holder for kickoff returns in a season (44) and return yards (1,161) Scott shows real open-field skills and a burst.

Defense
DE Monte Lewis, Jacksonville State, Sr. 29 tackles, 6.5 TFL, 3.0 sacks, 1 QBH, 1 FR, Lewis should be one of the top defensive players in the OVC.
DE Chandler Jones Syracuse Sr. was Second Team All Big East in the 2010 college football season as selected by a vote of the league’s eight head football coaches. Jones started all 12 games for the Orange at defensive end, tying for 32nd nationally and fourth in the BIG EAST with 0.25 forced fumbles per game. Jones led the defensive line with 53 tackles, including 8.5 tackles for loss and team-best 4.0 sacks.

DT Andrew Iupati, Humboldt St. transferred to Division II Humboldt State after beginning his career at Golden West Community College Iupati, who did not play in any games last in 2009 as a redshirt after transferring, he then transferred to Humboldt State University (Arcata, CA), where he is had two seasons of eligibility remaining for the NCAA Division II Lumberjacks., with the name and the frame Iupati has gotten attention. This year he’ll have to prove that he can be as dominant as he was at times in high school.

DT, Nicolas Jean-Baptiste, Baylor, Sr. A former walk-on, Jean-Baptiste earned a starting job at defensive tackle during junior season in 2010 and has played 37 of 38 career games (missed 2010 Texas Bowl to injury), a raw but powerful player he has squatted 600 pounds. A starter from the fourth game at Rice he started nine straight games before sitting out Texas Bowl and totaled 31 tackles (20 solo), two QB hurries, an assisted sack, fumble forced and pass breakup. He is not as polished or as NFL ready as former line mate Phil Taylor; still his potential could get him drafted, especially if he has a big closing stanza.
LB Adam Deese, UNCP, Sr. A regular starter in the linebacker corps for the Braves Deese led with 86 tackles (39 solo), including 61/2 tackles for loss (-13 yards). In addition to his tackle numbers, he also forced three fumbles, recovered two others and turned in an interception as well.

LB Antwan Pratt, Central State, Jr. 2010: In the truncated Central State 7 game schedule Pratt compiled 17 solos, 33 total tackles 6.5 TFLs and 2 sacks. He has impressive size and is an above average athlete. Pratt’s frame suggests he could be able to play in a 3-4 as an OLB.

LB/FS Shaquille Shedd, Southwest Baptist Jr. Shedd is a S/LB ‘tweener’ a Spur/Monster-type who was a Dual-threat quarterback in high school, at only about 193 pounds he’ll likely be moved to the secondary exclusively at the next level. In 11 games he had 52 solos, 53 assists 105

CB Ryan Steed, Furman, Steed is one of the best in the conference at getting his hands on the ball. He finished last season tied for fourth in the conference in interceptions (four) and tied for third in forced fumbles (three).

He finished tied for 11th in Conference USA with 0.85 pass breakups per game and topped the squad in tackles on passing plays with 32. Unfortunately Davis and Wide Receiver Michael Bowman were kicked out of The Other Place night club and were reportedly in the street cursing and yelling when the police came.

CB Laron Scott, Georgia Southern, Sr. He’s the GSU record holder for kickoff returns in a season (44) and return yards (1,161), and he tied the record for interceptions in a season (6). Scott is a playmaker on defense.
