15 for '15: Best players outside the Power 5 conferences

» Complete 15 for '15 series

CFB 24/7's "15 for '15" series rolls on with a look at the 15 best players outside the Power 5 conferences. While fans usually focus on the top leagues, there are many big-time players who play outside the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC. Current NFL stars who are from non-Power 5 schools include Philadelphia Eagles LB/DE Connor Barwin (Cincinnati), Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (Central Michigan), Green Bay Packers OG Josh Sitton (UCF), Detroit Lions S Glover Quin (New Mexico) and Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner (Utah State).

Note: We are not including Notre Dame. While the Irish aren't in a Power 5 conference, they're a Power 5 team.
