USF defensive end George Selvie still has a dent from the time a Buick rolled off a car jack and hit him in the head during his infancy.

He has spent the past two seasons causing similar dents in opposing quarterbacks.

Selvie delivered the type of results last fall that easily ranked as the best single-season performance in USF's brief football history. He led the nation with 31.5 tackles for loss and ranked second to Indiana's Greg Middleton with 14.5 sacks.

That kind of season made Selvie our choice as the No. 1 defensive lineman in the Rivals.com College Football Power Rankings, which measure the nation's top players and coaches at each position.

With two years of eligibility remaining, Selvie already has 20 career sacks to tie the school record. He recorded 3.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks last season in an overtime upset of Auburn, and continued delivering dominant performances the rest of the season.

We're introducing our preseason power rankings on a position-by-position basis. We'll continue Tuesday with the introduction of our linebacker rankings.

The rating of a player and coach can fluctuate each week during the season depending on how they fared the previous week, but the power rankings measure overall career performances as well as their most recent results.

THE DEFENSIVE LINEMEN RANKINGS

1. End George Selvie, USF, Jr.

The buzz: Selvie posted an NCAA-leading 31.5 tackles for loss – one shy of the single-season record - and ranked second in the nation with 14.5 sacks last season. He was a finalist for the Ted Hendricks Award, awarded to the best defensive end, and the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, given to the best defensive player.

me too, but if he's projected as a top pick this year, then he should leave; USF would benefit more with recruiting if he gets selected in the first round.
