2. Vernon Hargreaves III, CB, Florida


Vernon Hargreaves III is only a sophomore, but he is easily one of the best defensive backs in the country.

The Gators' cornerback was named first-team All-SEC last year as a freshman, finishing with 38 tackles, three interceptions and 11 passes defended.

He has earned preseason honors as well from the SEC and a first-team All-American nod.

The best thing about Hargreaves is the fact that he'll be back for at least a season beyond 2014, giving Florida fans hope that the defense will continue to be strong while the offense comes around.
