- Michigan DE Brandon Graham won MVP honors with 5 tackles, 2 sacks, a TFL and a forced fumble.
- Murray State DE Austen Lane scored a touchdown on a fumble recovery
- Purdue DT Mike Neal, Troy DE Cameron Sheffield, Georgia DT Geno Atkins, Tennessee DT Dan Williams, Alabama DT Terrence Cody, and California DE Tyson Alualu all either posted a sack, a tackle for loss or both.
- The DL likely to be drafted highest from the game, Penn State's Jared Odrick, and the DL that had likely improved his stock the most this week, Arkansas State DE Alex Carrington, did not record a sack or TFL, though each played well.
The savvy draft fans out there know that the real talent in this draft, however, lies along the defensive line.
