Best Vanderbilt Offensive Player

RB Ke’Shawn Vaughn, Sr. 
The 5-10, 215-pounder was exactly what the offense needed to take some of the pressure off Kyle Shurmur and the passing game, cranking out 1,244 yards and 12 scores – and catching two touchdown passes – averaging close to eight yards per run.

The Illinois transfer sat out a year, and he looked and played like a fresh back over the second half of the season, running for four 100-yard games in the final five, highlighted by his 243-yard, two-score day in the bowl win over Baylor.

2. TE Jared Pinkney, Sr.
3. WR Kalija Lipscomb, Sr.
4. QB Riley Neal, Sr.
5. WR CJ Bolar, Jr.

Best Vanderbilt Defensive Player

LB Dimitri Moore, Soph.
The 6-3, 225-pound guided missile has the speed and athleticism to work on the outside, but he’s a tough guy on the inside of the 3-4, finishing second on the team with 84 tackles with a sack and 3.5 tackles for loss. There’s a chance he could be turned loose a bit more into the backfield, but he’s at his best when he’s able to chase down ball-carriers. Expect a 100-stop season – at least.
