Athlon's back with another list - this time they ranked the top 50 Big East players. Ray Graham is, of course, high on the list. But it was a bit of a surprise that he wasn't the highest rated Panther.

That honor went to defensive standout, Aaron Donald. Hard to dispute that too much since Donald was one of the best defensive players in the league this season. But if Graham is healthy, I'd expect him to have the bigger season by comparison. It will be interesting to see if Donald is able to replicate his big 2011 with teams preparing a bit more for him.

Pitt also had plenty of other representation - here's the full list:

No. 2 - Aaron Donald

No. 3 - Ray Graham

No. 12 - Jarred Holley

No. 27 - Devin Street

No. 37 - Chris Jacobson

No. 39 - K'Waun Williams

No. 49 - Ryan Turnley

For the record, Rutgers linebacker Khaseem Greene was No. 1. Pitt's seven players tied them for third in the Big East.
