Timmy JerniganDefensive tackle | Florida State
The defensive tackle was one of the ACC's most disruptive linemen, as he led FSU's front with 44 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, and 4.5 sacks during the regular season. He was a candidate for the Lombardi Award, the Chuck Bednarik Award and the Outland Trophy. He has been described as the heart and soul of one of the nation's top defenses, and he is constantly double-teamed and filling gaps. He started all 13 games and finished fourth on the team with 54 tackles, 1 pass breakup and 2 quarterback hurries. He has dominated opposing linemen this season and been a key cog for the defense.
