Revised top 25 player countdown: No. 23

No. 23. Brandon Washington, OG, Miami

2010 numbers: He was second on the team with 56 pancake blocks and 11 lumberjack blocks. He graded out above 90 percent in all but one of Miami’s games, including 95 percent against ACC champ Virginia Tech.

Previous ranking: Not ranked.

Making the case for Washington: Washington had a break-out year as Miami's primary right guard, winning ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week twice in 2010. As a sophomore, Washington evolved into a leader on the line, and was one of three linemen who started all 13 games.
