FBS MVP Candidates-DL Edition 2

Let's switch gears now and concentrate on the defense, which is something that we don't do enough of. From now moving forward, we'll be keeping track of the best defensive players in the game, and we start with the D linemen...

Da'Quan Bowers, Clemson
When the ball is snapped, you had better expect to see his face in the backfield fast. He has racked up 14.5 TFLs this season as the Tigers have struggled despite his efforts.

Tim Fugger, Vanderbilt
You had better hold onto the ball with both hands when running by Fugger. He is tied for the national lead with 4 forced fumbles in 2010.

Josh McNary, Army
McNary has been on the leaderboard for sacks dating back to last season. Let's say he picked up where he left off. He leads the nation with 9.5 sacks in 2010.

Ryan Kerrigan, Purdue
People are referring to him as Superman in West Lafayette these days. He is second only to Bowers in TFLs with 14.

Logan Harrell, Fresno State
Loves to get after the QB. Has 8 sacks on the season, tied for second behind McNary.

Honorable Mention
Dontay Moch, Nevada
Vinny Curry, Marshall
Nick Fairley, Auburn
Brandon Jenkins, Florida State
Kyle Wilbur, Wake Forest
