Chase Beeler was part of an offensive line that surrendered just six sacks last season.
2010 numbers: Beeler earned first-team All-Pac-10 honors. Oh, and he was a consensus All-American.
Preseason ranking: No. 19
Making the case for Beeler: Beeler was the quarterback of perhaps the best line in the nation. Stanford ranked 17th in the nation in rushing -- 213.8 yards per game -- and allowed just six sacks, the second fewest in the nation. The Cardinal ranked 14th in the nation in total offense (472.5) and ninth in scoring offense with 40.3 ppg. While Beeler isn't widely seen as an elite NFL prospect, this ranking is about what he accomplished on the field in 2010, and that was quite a lot. And that's why he was a first-team All-American for the Associated Press, Football Writers Association of America and American Football Coaches Association and earned second-team honors with Walter Camp.
