Against Rutgers in the ’10 season he had 2.5 sacks. Over his career, he’s Army’s leader in sacks with 27.5 and tackles for loss with 48.5.

Best underclassmen prospect: #7 FB Jared Hassin, 6-2 ¼, 235 pounds, Redshirt-Sophomore – A transfer from the Air Force Academy became the biggest offensive force for Navy as the ’10 season went along.

Best prospect: #24 WR Aldrick Robinson, 5-9 ½, 178 pounds, 4.42 seconds, Senior – A member of the first-team Conference USA offense. Out of Waxahachie, Texas (home of Brian Waters), he caught 1,225 yards with 13 TD passes, becoming the first Mustangs receiver to have a pair of 1,000-yard seasons in his career. He caught 59 passes for 1,047 yards and 11 TDs in ’08, his sophomore season.

Best underclassmen prospect: #48 FB Zach Line, 6-0 ½, 235 pounds, Redshirt-Sophomore – He was selected for the first-team Conference USA offense thanks to his 1,391 yards, the third best season by a running back in SMU history. Only Eric Dickerson in 1981-82 topped Line’s season. He ran for 202 yards against Marshall.

Player that might interest Chiefs: #92 DE Margus Hunt, 6-7, 272 pounds, 4.89 seconds, Redshirt-Sophomore – Here’s a story and it’s a good one: Hunt is not related to the other Hunts of Dallas. He was born in Estonia, a country that was once part of the Soviet Union. He showed up in the sports world first as one of the finest junior athletes in the shot put, discus and hammer throw. He’s played football for the last two years for the Mustangs and has contributed 52 tackles, 4.5 sacks and a remarkable nine blocked kicks and punts in 26 games. Last year, he blocked seven kicks over the season. Obviously, he’s a raw product but the explosiveness that he needs in throwing the discus or shot put will also make him a good defensive end in the NFL.
