Joe AdamsKick returner | Arkansas
Adams entered the season as one of Arkansas' most decorated receivers, but he really made a name for himself nationally with his punt-returning skills. Adams led the country with three punt returns for touchdowns and an average of 16.19 yards per punt return. Adams had arguably the play of the year on one of his returns when he shed seven Tennessee tackles, traveling around 10 yards backward, before sprinting another 60 yards for a touchdown. Adams not only possesses the speed to frustrate kickers, but he's slippery enough and confident enough to field any sort of punt and make something happen.
