Jared CrickDefensive tackle | Nebraska
Two years after Ndamukong Suh became a household name, another Nebraska defensive tackle has worked his way onto the national radar. Crick is carving his own legacy in Lincoln, recording 9.5 sacks in each of the past two seasons (32 tackles for loss). A second-team All-American and a unanimous first-team All-Big 12 selection in 2010, Crick bypassed the NFL draft and returned to Nebraska, needing 10.5 sacks to become the team's all-time leader. The 6-foot-6, 285-pound Crick boasts size and quickness and will anchor a formidable defensive line in 2011.
