QB Kellen Moore, Boise State (4)
Playing as if he was built exclusively for the Bronco offense, Moore has had one of the best first three years ever for a starting quarterback. Not only has he led the program to a 38-2 mark and vied for the Heisman Trophy, but he’s also thrown for 99 touchdowns and more than 10,000 yards while getting picked just 19 times.
RB Kendall Hunter, Oklahoma State (3)
A two-time All-American, Hunter might have made it three had it not been for nagging injuries throughout his junior year. The dynamic force on the ground in the Cowboy offense, he ran for more than 1,500 yards in 2008 and 2010, nearly winning the Doak Walker Award a year ago.

RB Noel Devine, West Virginia (5)
An injury-filled finale can’t detract from all that Devine meant to the Mountaineers over the last four seasons. During his Morgantown stay, he was one of the nation’s most electrifying backs, using his blazing speed and diminutive frame to zip through holes and bust into secondaries. No. 2 among active rushers, he finished with 4,317 yards rushing, 98 receptions, and 31 scores.

WR Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma (4)
Already the most prolific receiver in Sooner history, he’s back for one more season to further enhance his legacy. Through three seasons, he’s caught 266 balls for 3,429 yards and 35 touchdowns, leading the country in catches and getting an All-American nod a year ago.

WR Dez Bryant, Oklahoma State (4)
It was a fleeting career, but Bryant certainly made it memorable. The only thing that stopped him at the previous level was a suspension that limited him to three games in 2009. In his only full season as a starter in 2008, he tore through the Big 12 for 87 catches, 1,480 yards, 19 touchdowns, and two punt returns for six. The first round pick of the Dallas Cowboys averaged more than a touchdown a game in Stillwater.

TE Aaron Hernandez, Florida (5)
A hybrid between a tight end and an H-back, Hernandez was a great fit for the Gators and a favorite target of Tim Tebow. Peaking with 68 grabs in his third and final season in Gainesville, his resume was highlighted by 111 receptions for 1,382 yards, and 12 touchdowns. An All-American and the first SEC tight end to win the Mackey Award, he delivered a solid debut with the New England Patriots.

OL Rodney Hudson, Florida State (3)
The most decorated offensive lineman to ever play in Tallahassee, Hudson was a four-year starter and a perennial all-star. While not very big, he’s an outstanding technician, with the versatility to play guard and center. Named the ACC’s premier blocker in 2009, he was an All-American and Outland Trophy finalist a year ago.

OL Stefen Wisniewski, Penn State (4)
At a school that’s produced a ton of notable student-athletes, Wisniewski is the first Penn State player to be named Academic All-American three times. A three-year starter and long-time rock at the pivot in Happy Valley, he was first team All-Big Ten in back-to-back years and an All-American in 2010.

OL Maurkice Pouncey, Florida (4)
A good player coming out of high school, ouncey has quickly evolved into a brilliant center. A three-year starter in Gainesville, he was an All-American and the Rimington Trophy winner in 2009 as a junior. After being taken in the first round of the 2010 draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers, he not only started all 16 games, but has already made his first Pro Bowl team.

OL Clint Boling, Georgia (3)
On a unit that too often was crippled by injuries over the past few seasons, Boling was a shining exception. A four-year starter, playing guard and both tackle spots, he’s been first or second team All-SEC since his sophomore season and was recently named to the program’s Team of the Decade.

OL Lee Ziemba, Auburn (4)
Ziemba started every game of his Tiger career, establishing a new record for the program. Sure, he got schooled early on, but he kept improving and adapting to changes in Auburn’s offensive system. After receiving honorable mention All-SEC as a junior, he was named the league’s top blocker during last year’s national championship run.
