2011 CFN Preseason Offensive Player of the Year

RB Marcus Lattimore, Soph. South Carolina
The 6-0, 231-pound true sophomore was brilliant rushing for 1,197 yards and 17 scores averaging 4.8 yards per carry, and he also showed off nice hands out of the backfield with 29 catches – third most on the team – for 412 yards and two scores. He announced his arrival into the SEC world with 182 yards and two scores on 34 carries in the win over Georgia, and while he was slowed down in the loss to Auburn and was held under 100 yards in six of the first seven games, he still scored 12 touchdowns in the first six games and became a weapon for the rest of the attack to work around. His already good season took on another level with 40 carries for 215 yards and three scores in the SEC East-clinching win over Florida.

2011 CFN Preseason Defensive Player of the Year

LB Dont'a Hightower, Jr. Alabama
At 6-4 and 260 pounds he's huge, fast, and tough in the middle of the linebacking corps with phenomenal range and peerless leadership ability. He could've taken off early for the NFL and he has top ten-overall potential in next year's draft, if he chooses to forgo his senior year, but for now he'll be on the short list for the Butkus Award and should be a lock for All-America honors. It would be nice if he was more of a pass rusher, but that's nitpicking; he's as steady as they come.
