Who you guys got for User Defensive Player of the year? In my humble opinion, here are the top 4 candidates (in no particular order) - Cody Riggs - CB - Florida Why? The "do it all" defensive back accounted for 45 tackles, 7 Tackles for loss, 3 sacks and 6 interception and 5 pass deflections. He is also your 2013 Bednarik and Thorpe award winner. Undoubtedly, a fantastic season by the Junior. Chase Garnham - MLB - Vandy Why? The dude had 73 tackles to lead the nation. He is unquestionably a tackling machine. He also added 18 tackles for loss, 3 interceptions (1 returned for a TD) and 3 pass deflections. He finished 2 in the voting for best LB in the nation. Shayon Green - LE - Miami Why? The 2013 Lombardi and Nagurski winner had a mind-boggling 25 tackles for loss. He also added 16 sacks and 3 forced fumbles. Green is one of the big reasons that Miami is going to be playing for the National Championship tonight. John Fulton - CB - Bama Why? He finished 2nd in the nation behind Riggs for the Thorpe award and 3rd in the voting for the Bednarik award. Though he only had 13 tackles, he was the clear defensive back leader for the Tide. He lead the nation with 9 interceptions and returned 2 of those for a TD. He also added 7 pass deflections.
