BYU O-lineman led Cougars at No. 3

No. 3: Matt Reynolds, OL, BYU

2009 numbers: Helped BYU rank 21st nationally in total offense with 427.15 yards per game and 11th in scoring offense with 35.46 points per game.

Making the case for Reynolds: Reynolds might be the most important man on the BYU offense this year as the Cougars break in a new starting quarterback and running back. Reynolds, a left tackle, spent his first two seasons protecting former quarterback Max Hall and will spend at least this year either protecting Jake Heaps or Riley Nelson. Reynolds has had some injury issues in the past, but when healthy is considered one of the best offensive lineman in the country.
