Marks was effective last season as a defensive end, but defensive tackle figures to be more of a natural fit. Although he wasn't highly recruited coming out of high school, Marks has developed into a potential top-10 pick in next year's NFL draft.

Dannell Ellerbe, MLB
Ellerbe boasts next-level athleticism in the middle of Georgia's defense. Last season the 6-foot-1, 232-pound linebacker led the Dogs with 93 tackles, including 12 tackles for loss.

Jonathan Luigs, C
He contributed greatly to the success of former Razorback running backs Darren McFadden and Felix Jones. He won the Rimington Trophy as the nation's top center last season.

Matthew Stafford, QB
There is good reason to believe Stafford will really take off in his third season as Georgia's No. 1 quarterback. Given Stafford's cannon arm, NFL scouts project him as a future top-10 pick.

Eric Berry, SS
As a true freshman in 2007, Berry quickly established himself as one of the top safeties in the country. With Berry's supreme play-making ability -- he had five interceptions for a school-record 222 return yards in '07 -- coach Phillip Fulmer has experimented with him on offense side in practice.

Michael Oher, LT
Oher was the focus of Michael Smith's 2006 book, <i>The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game</i>. He declared for the draft in January, but returned for one last season in Oxford.
7 of 10Bill Frakes/SI
Percy Harvin, WR
He bulked up in the offseason. If he can stay healthy, he can earn serious Heisman consideration.

Andre Smith, LT
The massive (6-foot-5, 340 pounds) left tackle has lived up to his enormous hype coming out of high school. Many folks believe Smith is the best left tackle in college football.

Knowshon Moreno, RB
Moreno's emergence was probably the key reason Georgia finished last season with seven consecutive wins. He ran for 188 yards and three touchdowns in his first Georgia-Florida game.
10 of 10David Bergman/SI
Tim Tebow, QB
Tebow is looking to become the second two-time Heisman winner in history. With more talent in the backfield, Tebow will not receive as much of the running workload, but he'll look to show off his underrated arm.
