Revised top 25 countdown: No. 10

No. 10. Greg Reid, CB, Florida State

2010 numbers: He was second in the ACC in passes defended with 17, including 14 pass breakups and three interceptions. He was also fourth in the ACC in punt return average (10.1) and fifth in kick return average (23.9). He was fourth on the team with 65 tackles, including three tackles for loss. He also had three forced fumbles.

Previous ranking: No. 22

Making the case for Reid: He’s an exciting kick returner who has helped the Seminoles win the field position battle, but he was also disruptive in the passing game. His defensive MVP performance in the win over South Carolina in the Chick-fil-A Bowl was the best example of how he can seem to be everywhere on the field at once.
