2015 All-Bilo FBS Defensive Lineman of the Year

Here are our finalists for 2015 All-Bilo FBS Defensive Lineman of the Year:

Carl Nassib, Penn State
Nassib, a senior, finished with 46 total tackles, recorded 19.5 TFLs, and finished with 15.5 sacks on the season for the Nittany Lions.

Ejuan Price, Pittsburgh
Price recorded 48 total tackles, returned a fumble for a touchdown, recorded 19.5 TFLs, and finished with 11.5 sacks for the Panthers.

Myles Garrett, Texas A&M
Garrett recorded 58 total tackles, 19.5 TFLs, and 12.5 sacks for the Aggies in 2015.

Shaq Lawson, Clemson
Lawson finished with 60 total tackles for the national runner up Tigers this season, and added 25.5 TFLs, and 12.5 sacks.

Bronson Kaufusi, BYU
Kaufusi finished with 63 tackles in 2015 to go with 19.5 TFLs, 10.5 sacks, and 3 forced fumbles for the Cougars.

Kevin Dodd, Clemson
Dodd finished with 62 tackles, 23.5 TFLs, and 12 sacks, and added 6 QB hurries this season for Clemson.

And the winners is...

Shaq Lawson, Clemson
Largely believed to be the best defensive lineman in college football in 2015, Lawson was a force to be reckoned with from day one in 2015, and nearly spearheaded the Clemson defense to a national title before the Tigers collapsed against Alabama in the national title game. Lawson, a junior, is likely to declare for the 2016 NFL draft, leaving a gaping hole up front for the Tigers in 2016.
