No. 24. George Bryan, TE, NC State

2010 numbers: He was third on the team in receptions with 35 catches for 369 yards and three touchdowns.

Previous ranking: Not ranked.

Making the case for Bryan: He was a complete player, but also a major factor in NC State’s passing game, as he is tied for ninth in school history with 13 career touchdown receptions. He was a first-team all-conference selection for the second straight year, and a semifinalist for the 2010 Mackey Award.
