Only time will tell if the graduate transfer from Hawaii with the strong BYU football bloodlines will deserve to be higher or lower on this list but the chances are really good Dylan Collie will have a big impact on the season. He had 118 receptions for 1,300 yards and nine TDs with the Warriors and immediately forces opponents to be aware of him on the outside. 

The BYU national championship team in 1984 had talented offensive players but it was the Cougar defense that put the team in position to win it all. White was one of the most important players on that squad as a disruptive presence. He ended his career with 249 tackles, 19 pass breakups and 42 quarterback hurries.

When Van Noy was locked in, particularly late in his career, he was unbelievable. He had a knack for making the big play late in games (like at Ole Miss and against San Diego State in the Poinsettia Bowl). He could bust things up in the backfield (61.5 career tackles for a loss) but could also drop back into coverage (seven interceptions). He spearheaded some impressive BYU defenses.
