Before Big Ten media days kick off in a couple of hours in Chicago, the conference released its official Big Ten Players to Watch early Wednesday morning. The list includes 10 players – five from both divisions – and Michigan (Devin Gardner & Taylor Lewan) and Ohio State (Braxton Miller, Bradley Roby and Ryan Shazier) account for half of the representatives. See the full list in this post.

No real surprises with these names. All are deserving, and all figure to have very big 2013 seasons. Some may argue the Nebraska offense deserved another representative – either Ameer Abdullah, Kenny Bell or Spencer Long – but it's impossible to please everyone with these kind of things.
