Nebraska defensive tackle Jared Crick is one of six players named to both the Outland and Nagurski Preseason Watch Lists for the upcoming season.
The Outland Trophy goes to the nation's best interior lineman, while the Nagurski Trophy is awarded annually to the nation's best defensive player.
Crick, who was a first-team All-Big 12 selection last season, is joined by DTs Sam Acho, Texas; Marvin Austin, North Carolina; Jarvis Jenkins, Clemson; Stephen Paea, Oregon State and Jerrell Powe, Ole Miss.
Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich, who missed all of 2009 battling overcoming Ewing's sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, also made the Nagurski Watch List. The former All-American looks to return to the field for his senior season.
North Carolina placed four players on the Nagurski list, including Austin, LBs Bruce Carter and Quan Sturdivant and DE Robert Quinn. Alabama has three players -- S Mark Barron, DE Marcell Dareus and LB Dont'a Hightower.
Ohio State and Oklahoma placed three players on the Outland list, the most of any school. Guards Justin Boren, Bryant Browning and center Mike Brewster represent Ohio State, while Oklahoma placed offensive tackled Cory Brandon, center Ben Habern and DT Adrian Taylor on the list.
The Nagurski Trophy will be on Dec. 6, while the Outland Trophy will be announced Dec. 9.
