Click here for Nos. 22-30. Preseason rankings are here.

20. Nick Foles, QB, Arizona (NR): Foles didn't make his first career start until the fourth game of the season, but he still passed for 2,466 yards with 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He completed 63 percent of his passes. It's also important to note what the sophomore didn't have -- tight end Rob Gronkowski and a consistently healthy stable of running backs, which often hamstrung the Wildcats' ground attack and forced Foles to carry the offense.

21. Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, DE, Washington (23): Te'o-Nesheim finished ranked second in the Pac-10 with 11 sacks and earned second-team All-Pac-10 honors. He also ranked second in the conference by forcing five fumbles. He led all Huskies defensive linemen with 37 total tackles.

22. Mike Mohamed, LB, California (NR)

23. Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford (NR)
