Tennessee football offensive lineman Jashon Robertson is the third Vols player on an official preseason watch list for a postseason award. Past winners include all-time greats like defensive tackle Warren Sapp (Miami, Fla.), cornerback Charles Woodson (Michigan), cornerback Champ Bailey (Georgia), defensive end Terrell Suggs (Arizona State), defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (Nebraska), linebacker Luke Kuechley (Boston College) and defensive tackle Aaron Donald (Pittsburgh).

It marks the second-straight year at least three Wildcat defenders are candidates for the Nagurski Trophy, while Geary is a candidate for the Outland Trophy for a second-straight season.

Reed, a six-foot-one, 245-pound returning starter, is one of 103 defensive players from around the nation to be named to the Bronko Nagurski Trophy watch list.

The list will be trimmed to six or seven semifinalists on Wed, Nov. 15.

Players may be added or removed from the watch list during the course of the season. On Nov. 16, 2017, the FWAA and the Charlotte Touchdown Club will select five finalists for the 2017 Nagurski Trophy. Senior linebacker Nyles Morgan was chosen to the 2017 Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List.

Wazzu Cougar offensive guard Cody O'Connell leads a 5-pack of players from the state of Washington on the 2017 Outland Trophy Watch List.

OU's last Nagurski Trophy victor was Derrick Strait in 2003 and Roy Williams in 2001. The award has gone to many offensive linemen but isn't reserved just for the OL. Members of the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) vote for the annual award. The Bronko Nagurski Trophy victor will be selected by the FWAA All-America Committee after All-America teams are announced. As a redshirt freshman, Gates started all 10 games he played in 2015, earning a spot on BTN's All-Bowl Team for his effort against UCLA.

The Football Writers Association of America will announce the Outland Trophy victor on December 7.
