Note: This isn't a ranking of the top pro prospects. This is based on the seasons we think the players are going to have.

CFN 2011 FIRST TEAM PRESEASON ALL-AMERICAN

1. Cliff Harris, Jr. Oregon
Harris was unstoppable on punts in 2010, averaging 18.8 yards and taking four back for touchdowns. As good as he is as a punt returner, he’s a better defensive back, but he has to come back strong after serving a suspension for speeding.

CFN 2011 SECOND TEAM PRESEASON ALL-AMERICAN

2. Tony Logan, Sr. Maryland
Logan is back and ready to make a run at All-American honors. A dynamic playmaker who can make people miss, he earned All-ACC first team honors ranking third in the nation at 18.1 yards and taking a pair back for six.

CFN 2011 HONORABLE MENTION PRESEASON ALL-AMERICAN

3. Joe Adams, Sr. Arkansas
After finishing fourth in the nation in punt returns, the Hogs should be strong again with the return of Adams, who averaged 15.6 yards per try with a score.

BEST OF THE REST

4. Greg Reid, Jr. Florida State
Reid is once again expected to handle both kickoff and punt returns. A dangerous playmaker in the open field, he averaged 24 yards on kickoffs and ranked 28th nationally on punts, often forcing the other team to avoid him completely.

5. Damaris Johnson, Sr. Tulsa
Johnson gives Tulsa one of the most dangerous return men in the country. An All-American and the Conference USA Special Teams Player of the Year in 2010, he’s a long-ball threat every time he’s on the field, scoring at least one special teams touchdown in each of the last three years.

6. Ryan Broyles, Sr. Oklahoma
The superstar receiver averaged 7.9 yards per try, and while he wasn’t always spectacular, he was always good with the ball in his hands. He’s great at making the first man miss.

7. Josh Robinson, Jr. UCF
Robinson was ninth nationally averaging 15.2 yards on 20 attempts. He took over the job in the fifth game of the season but he didn’t hit his stride until late October, and then he was a difference maker.

8. Marquis Maze, Sr. Alabama
The return game was terrific, finishing 19th in the nation in punt returns and 16th in kickoff returns. Maze, a receiver, will handle most of the duties after averaging 12.7 yards per punt return and 23.6 yards per kickoff return.

9. Keshawn Martin, Sr. Michigan State
Martin is extremely quick and extremely dangerous, but he slipped last year as a kickoff returner after averaging 29.8 yards per try in 2009. He only averaged a mere 17.8 yards per attempt last year, but he’ll be back at the helm, while he’ll also be the main man again on punt returns after averaging a whopping 14.2 yards per return with a score.

10. Chris Potter, Jr. Boise State
Potter, a receiver, is an elite punt returner averaging 13.3 yards per pop. He dominated against Idaho taking a punt back for a score, but he was good after taking over the job in the fourth game of the year.
