4. Aidan Hutchinson

Aidan Hutchinson had one of the most memorable seasons we have seen in a long time in 2021. In his career, he totaled 153 tackles, 25 tackles for loss, 15.5 sacks, and 4 forced fumbles.

In 2021 alone, he had 55 tackles, 11 sacks and two forced fumbles. This season was cemented with a 3 sack performance against the Buckeyes to send Michigan football to the Big Ten Championship.

Hutch was the ultimate team player who was willing to do whatever it took to help the team win. He was the undeniable leader of the 2021 team and went on to finish 2nd in Heisman Trophy voting. Hutch brought the juice every single week and he landed at the #4 spot on the list.
