Why he's here: Doss impacted games in multiple ways throughout his three-year career at Indiana, making contributions as a receiver, a rusher and a return man. He led the Big Ten in all-purpose yards for the second consecutive season, ranking fifth nationally at 175.8 yards per game, well ahead of his 2009 average (138.8 ypg). Despite leaving a year early for the NFL draft, Doss ranks in the top 10 in team history in receptions (fourth; 154), kick return yards (fourth; 1,549), receiving yards (seventh; 1,854) and all-purpose yards (seventh; 3,786). A candidate for both the Biletnikoff and Hornung Awards, Doss eclipsed 250 all-purpose yards in two games and 150 yards in five contests, which included a 363-yard performance (second-highest total nationally) against Michigan. He finished second in the Big Ten in receptions (5.7 rpg) behind teammate Damarlo Belcher.
