Bradley RobyCornerback | Ohio State
The natural athleticism is unmistakable, and the confident sophomore is just as aware of it as everybody else. That used to be a problem when he'd evaluate his competition, compare their talents to his and occasionally allow complacency to creep in when they didn't stack up. But with the help of coach Urban Meyer and some improved focus, Roby treated every opportunity like it would be the last he'd get -- and it was a rare occasion when he didn't capitalize. Despite missing a game with a shoulder injury, he finished the season with 19 passes defended, 2 interceptions, blocked a punt and scored 3 touchdowns for the unbeaten Buckeyes.
