Shoelace will be hard to tie up, small but sturdy running backs join rangy receivers, and (as usual) the linemen will play very big
QB DENARD ROBINSON MICHIGAN JUNIOR
In 2010 "Shoelace" became the first player in NCAA history to rush for 1,500 yards and pass for 2,500 in a season. Robinson may be fresher in '11 as the Wolverines go from a spread to a tight formation.

RB MONTEE BALL WISCONSIN JUNIOR
The 5' 11", 214-pound Ball averaged 155.4 yards over the Badgers' last five games of 2010, including 132 against TCU in the Rose Bowl.
SECOND TEAM REX BURKHEAD NEBRASKA JUNIOR
RB EDWIN BAKER MICHIGAN STATE JUNIOR
Possessing strength and breakaway speed, the 5' 9", 208-pound Baker is the Spartans' steadiest back. He gained at least 90 yards in seven games last season, finishing with 1,201 (a 5.8 average per carry).
