25Cam NewtonCameron Jerrell Newton is an American football quarterback for the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League.

He won a national championship with very little assistance, and if you don't think the offense was all Cam I challenge you to name another offensive player from that year for Auburn. Also note: he ran the read option in the SEC West and still couldn't be stopped.

He did everything one can possibly achieve me in college football all in one year. He was the MAN.

Scam newton should not have even played at auburn should have faced a hard punishment for stealing a laptop

Just go watch his highlights, need I say more?

32Andrew LuckAndrew Austen Luck is an American football quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League.

He's got immense talent, too bad he never won Heisman. Great in the NFL too.

33Sam BradfordSamuel "Sam" Jacob Bradford is an American football quarterback of the National Football League. He was drafted by the St. Louis Rams with the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. He played college football at Oklahoma and as a redshirt sophomore Bradford became only the second sophomore to win more.

36Dave Rimington

Think of which player performed his position so much better than others... Dave Rimington stands out not just as the best Center to play college football, but far enough ahead of the next best to consider him the best player of all-time.

37Mike Singletary

He still holds numerous school records at Baylor, including the single-season mark of 232 tackles in 1978.

38Derrick Thomas

27 sacks in 1 season will never be broken, arguably the best defensive player ever
