Devin TaylorDefensive end | South Carolina
Devin Taylor, a first-team All-SEC athlete, led South Carolina's defensive line with 46 tackles last season, and his 7.5 sacks last season were good enough to put him fourth on the SEC's sack list. Taylor returns as one of the most gifted ends in the league and, even at 6-foot-7, 248 pounds, he is quick around the edge, matching his strength with a wealth of speed. Though opposing lines will be more aware of him this fall, his power and athleticism will still make him a force to stop, and he should continue to put up impressive numbers in 2011.
