Non-BCS Conferences' Top 10 Players
Quintin Demps, FS, Sr.
The finest ball hawk you've never heard of recorded seven interceptions and broke up five passes last season. Demps and strong safety Braxton Amy make for an impressive tandem.
Dan LeFevour, QB, So.
As a redshirt freshman last season LeFevour led the Chippewas to the MAC title and set Central Michigan records for touchdown passes (26), passing yards (3,031) and total offense (3,552). Even though he's just a sophomore, LeFevour enters this season as the MAC's biggest star.
Damion Fletcher, RB, So.
Fletcher enjoyed the best rushing season for a freshman in Conference USA history, rushing for 1,388 yards and 11 touchdowns. He torched North Carolina State for 177 yards and three touchdowns.
Ryan Clady, LT, Jr.
The 6-foot-6, 317-pounder is the most dominant force on a talented Broncos offensive line. Clady starred in the Fiesta Bowl against an imposing Oklahoma defense.
Chase Holbrook, QB, Jr.
Holbrook ran Hal Mumme's "Air Raid" offense to perfection as a sophomore, throwing for 4,619 yards and 34 touchdowns to just nine interceptions. He posted eight games of more than 350 yards and three of more than 500.
Tommy Blake, DE, Sr.
Blake is the most talented player on an imposing TCU defense. Blake led the Mountain West with 16.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks, while recording an impressive 54 tackles from the defensive end spot. He missed five practices earlier in camp, citing personal reasons, but he has returned to action.
Jarett Dillard, WR, Jr.
A finalist for last year's Biletnikoff Award, Dillard broke an NCAA record for consecutive games in a season with a touchdown catch (13) and shattered Rice's record for most touchdown grabs in a season (21). He enters 2007 with a streak of 15 consecutive games with a touchdown reception, three short of Larry Fitzgerald's all-time record.
Dwight Lowery, DB, Sr.
Lowery finished second nationally with nine interceptions -- a San Jose State record. He has made multiple preseason All-America lists and was tabbed as preseason WAC Defensive Player of the Year.
Ian Johnson, RB, Jr.
As the centerpiece of undefeated, Fiesta Bowl champion Boise State, Johnson led the nation with 25 rushing touchdowns. He averaged 6.2 yards per carry en route to 1,714 yards on the ground.
Colt Brennan, QB, Sr.
Last season, Brennan enjoyed one of the most prolific offensive seasons ever. He threw for 5,559 yards, had nine games with more than 400 yards and set the Division I-A record with 58 touchdowns. The Warriors QB posted a 72.6 completion percentage to boot.<br><br>Send comments to email@example.com.
