Tough to go against Hilliard, but Ben Wilkerson came in as a true freshman and started at center for the 2003 team. He would have been a certain first-rounder had he not torn his patella tendon in a blowout win against Vandy with only seconds left on the clock.
Wilkerson was a junior in 2003.
My vote goes to the three main ones mentions before- Kevin Faulk, Dalton Hilliard, TM7. Hard to distinguish between those three.
Honorable mentions go to Michael Clayton and Laron Landry.
