Big Ten players on Outland, Nagurski lists

Have you caught preseason watch list fever yet? If so, please see a doctor. If not, well, be careful because we've got two more coming at you.

The most recent watch lists involve two big awards: the Outland and the Bronco Nagurski trophies. The Outland honors the top interior lineman on either side of the ball, and the Nagurski goes to the best defender.

The Big Ten has good representation on both lists, with 10 Outland honorees and 13 on the Nagurski scroll . Take a look:



As I said, good representation here. The Big Ten would normally have more on the Outland side, but the league lacks proven defensive tackles going into the season. Lewan should be a threat to win the Outland, and Long was an All-American last year. You can never count out Wisconsin linemen when it comes to awards, so watch out for Groy. Tons of great players and potential All-Americans on the Nagurski list. Can any of them beat out Jadeveon Clowney?
