Best of the B1G, #10-6

b1g_iconWe continue our countdown of the of the best of the best of the B1G. From here on out, these are the true superstars of the B1G, those players that will have the best chance to be playing on Sundays but this year will be lighting things up on Saturday. We start with the two-headed-monster/QB tandem from Northwestern:

#10 Trevor Siemian/Kain Colter

The intangible that makes the Northwestern quarterback duo so appealing—in addition to its relative success, is that when a team has a successful dual quarterbacking approach, it has a greater degree of insulation from severe drop-off if there is an injury.

#9 James White

He led his team in rushing yards his freshman season, but has never done so again, and has never led the team in carries.

#8 Carlos Hyde

In 2012, he led the Big Ten conference in scoring and touchdown scoring and was named All-Big Ten second team. He also received honors from Ohio State by receiving the Rex Kern award for outstanding offensive player from his efforts in the Michigan, Illinois, and Nebraska games.

#7 Jake Ryan

During the 2012 season, Ryan racked up 88 tackles (21st in the league) and 16 tackles for loss. Ryan also had 5.0 sacks and 5 forced fumbles. In terms of how his stats ranked in the Big 10, he was third overall in total tackles for loss. He also led the league in fumbles forced per game.

#6 Allen Robinson

Robinson is going to be only 1 of 7 returning receivers in the NCAA with 1,000 yards catching, 10 plus touchdowns, and over 75 receptions. He is a fast wide receiver with the skills of great hands, crisp and precise route running. During the off season Allen has added 10 pounds of muscle and has worked even more on his route running.
