Top Players

1. Jacquizz Rodgers, Oregon State – 5’7 190 RB – Quizz is arguably the best back in the country. Long shot for Heisman, if the Beav can win the Pac-10.
2. Noel Devine, WVU – 5’7 176 RB – Devine may share the same name as a meth addicted stripper from Morgantown, but as the WVU marketing dept. would say, it’s Devine’s time to shine…cheesy right?
3. Dion Lewis, Pitt – 5’8 190 RB – First player since Mike Vick to win Big East Rookie of the year and Offensive POY in the same season.
4. Greg Romeus, Pitt – 6’6 270 DE – Had 43 tackles, 8.5 sacks, one interception and three forced fumbles, in 09.
5. Jonathan Baldwin, Pitt – 6’5 225 WR– He’s 6-foot-5 with a 42-inch vertical and sub-4.4 speed, making him an almost impossible matchup for most opposing defensive backs. Pitt is loaded!
6. B.J. Daniels, USF – 6’1 212 QB – Up and down last season, but when he was up he was great. One of the best play makers in the Big East.
7. Randall Cobb, UK – 5’11 186 WR/QB – It was hard enough to put Cobb on the list, so I won’t be giving him any gloss.
8. Robert Sands, WVU – 6’5 190 Safety – Had 65 tackles, five interceptions, eight pass break-ups and one fumble recovery, in 09.
9. Zach Collaros, Cincy – 6’1 205 QB – Had a break out season in 09. Collaros took over when starter Tony Pike went down.
10. Lawrence Wilson, Conn. – 6’1 217 LB – The undersized LB led the Big East in tackles last season and was among the nations leaders.
11. Tom Savage, Rutgers – 6’5 230 QB – Completed 149 of 285 passes for 2,211 yards with 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions, in 09.
12. Armon Binns, Cincy – 6’0 200 WR – Binns had a remarkable breakout season in 2009, especially when you consider that he had only two career catches coming into the year.
