Thomas Weber, Fr. Arizona State
22 of 23 on field goals, 42-44 extra points

Weber missed one field goal as a vital cog for a Sun Devil offense that often struggled with its consistency. He didn't just nail a bunch of kicks from short range, he also connected all six of his field goal attempts from 40 yards and out including a 53-yarder.

Durant Brooks, Sr. Georgia Tech
61 kicks for 2,778 yards, 45.5 average, 30 inside the 20, 19 fair catches

Brooks might not have led the nation in punting average, but that's partly because he blasted 30 kicks inside the 20 and forced 19 fair catches as the nation's most consistent kicker. That's not to say he wasn't able to show off a big leg, he cranked out a 77-yard bomb.

Second Team Kevin Huber, Jr. Cincinnati
53 punts for 2,484 yards, 46.9 yards per kick, 18 inside the 20

Third Team Chris Miller, Sr. Ball State
56 kicks for 2,566 yards, 45.82 average

A.J. Jefferson, Soph. Fresno State
26 returns, 930 yards, 35.77 yards per return, 2 touchdowns

Not only was Jefferson the nation's leading kickoff returner, he led the nation by almost four yards per return. He didn't get an attempt over the first three games, and was out the last two, but in between he became college football's most dangerous playmakers with three touchdowns in WAC play.

Second Team Matt Slater, Sr. UCLA
30 returns for 928 yards, 3 TD, 30.93-yard average


Third Team Kevin Robinson, Sr. Utah State

43 returns for 1,260 yards, 29.3-yard average

10. Brandon James, Soph. Florida

Kevin Robinson, Sr. Utah State
20 returns for 378 yds, 1 TD, 18.9-yard average
The nation's best all-around kick returner was devastating on kickoff returns and was even better on punt returns with a nation-leading 18.9-yard average. As the season went on, teams stopped putting the ball in his hands, but that helped the cause giving the Aggies decent field position time and again.

Second Team Leodis McKelvin, Sr. Troy
25 returns for 436 yards, 3 TDs, 17.44
-yard average

Third Team
Deon Murphy, Jr. Kansas State
