Kevin MinterLinebacker | LSU
Tigers fans can't blame Minter for their collapse against Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Minter, a junior from Suwanee, Ga., had 19 tackles, 1½ tackles for loss, and one sack in LSU's 25-24 loss. His tackle total was one shy of his career-high, which he set against Florida earlier this season. Minter finished the season with 130 tackles, fourth-most by an LSU player in a season, and the most since Bradie James had 154 in 2002.
