Jarvis JonesLinebacker | Georgia
Because of transfer rules, Jones had to sit out all of the 2010 season, but he certainly didn't come out slow during his first year back in college football. Jones went on a tear against opposing backfields, leading the SEC with 19.5 tackles for loss and 13.5 sacks. Jones grabbed 16 of those tackles in SEC play. Jones was brought in to help ease the absence of the departed Justin Houston, and the sophomore didn't disappoint. He was one of the most active linebackers in the SEC, using his speed and grit to disrupt a handful of plays each game, and led Georgia with 69 tackles.
