Editor's note: ESPN.com's Mel Kiper Jr. continues his look at the most important players on each Division I-A team with his lists of the five most important players on each team in the Sun Belt Conference (schools listed in alphabetical order).

Arkansas State Indians
1. Nick Noce, QB, sr. -- Struggled with interceptions last year but has a strong arm and a take-charge approach that will serve him well if he can cut down the mistakes.
2. Antonio Warren, RB, sr. -- Showed improved speed in the spring and will be more involved in he passing game this season.
3. Oren O'Neal, FB, sr. -- An outstanding lead blocker who is at his best leading Warren through the hole.
4. Levi Dejohnette, WR, so. -- An angular athlete with soft hands.
5. Tyrell Johnson, SS, so. -- Had an impressive freshman year and will be a key as the team switches from a 4-2-5 defense to a more traditional 4-3.
