8. Patrick Willis (LB, Ole Miss)

Willis not only had a great NFL career with the San Fransisco 49ers, but a great college career as well at Ole Miss where he is revered and one of the greatest to ever put on a uniform on either side of the ball.

Willis played in Oxford on some subpar teams from 2004-2006 but was a standout regardless. In just two seasons, he would total 265 tackles and 21 sacks. Willis would lead the SEC in tackles both years.

In 2006, Willis was also a Consensus All-American, Dick Butkus Award winner, and SEC Defensive Player of the Year.

7. Reggie White (DL, Tennessee)

The late Reggie White was too much to handle from the defensive tackle position. He accumulated 293 tackles during his time with the Volunteers, which is a great stat for any position, let alone defensive line where it is unheard of.

White had the ability to shed blockers like they were 100 pounds lighter than he was, and his 32 sacks and 19 tackles-for-loss showed it. He would go on to be a consensus All-American, SEC Player of the Year and Lombardi Award finalist.
