No. 20. Jarvis Jenkins, DT, Clemson
2010 numbers: He finished ninth on the team in tackles with 53, including nine tackles for loss. He also had 16 quarterback pressures. He tied a school record with two blocked kicks.
Previous ranking: Not ranked.
Making the case for Jenkins: Only defensive end Da’Quan Bowers had more quarterback pressures for the Tigers, and he was a big reason why Clemson finished No. 13 in the nation in scoring defense. He also made game-changing plays on special teams. Jenkins finished his career with a school-record four blocked placekicks in 1,607 snaps over 49 games (38 starts) in his career. He started each of the final 35 games he played in.
