1
Jake Renfro, C Jr.

Call this a placeholder spot for the No. 1 with just about everyone on this Top 10 list – and a few who aren’t – potentially good enough to be here.

It’s also debatable whether or not Renfro is even the team’s best blocker with other all-stars on the line, but the 6-3, 310 veteran is the key quarterback up front. The First Team All-AAC performer has been the starting center over the last two seasons and he’s getting stronger – he’s a true junior.

2
Deshawn Pace, LB Jr.

6-2, 218. 95 tackles, 9.5 TFL, 4 INT, 2 broken up passes last season

3
Lorenz Metz, OG Sr.

6-9, 326. The massive First Team All-ACC blocker can work at tackle or guard and will move around where needed. The Germany native has the size and versatility to grow into even more of a pro prospect.

4
Dylan O’Quinn, OT Sr.

6-4. 305. Former guard who took over at right tackle last season and earned First Team All-AAC honors.

5
Ja’von Hicks, S Sr.

6-2, 205. 130 career tackles, 3.5 TFL, 7 INT, 7 broken up passes, 6 fumble recoveries in four years

6
Arquon Bush, CB Sr.

6-0, 190. 79 tackles, 1 sack, 5 TFL, 7 INT, 16 broken up passes

7
Josh Whyle, TE Jr. 

6-6, 245. 56 career catches for 736 yards (12.1 ypc), 12 TD in three years

8
Ty Van Fossen, LB Sr.

6-2, 220. 111 career tackles, 3 sacks, 12 TFL, 3 broken up passes in four years

9
Corey Kiner, RB Soph.

5-10, 213. 79 carries, 324 yards (4.1 ypc), 2 TD, 2 catches for 10 yards last year for LSU

10
Tyler Scott, WR Jr.

5-11, 177. 30 catches, 520 yards (17.3 ypc), 5 TD last year
