Good list. Hard topic.

Tebow, Harvin, Peter Warrick are hard to leave off that list.

This is damn good list. Totally agree with RB, TE, WR. Hard to leave Deion off.

the original question says "you've ever seen" aware of Deion in the league but I can't remember him at FSU. or Barry at Okla state. i was alive but not following College at that time.

Sick is the word for Barry at that time. Woodson and Desmond Howard were pretty great.

and Bo. I was almost a little too young to truly appreciate Herschel and Bo but they're both in my top 5 at RB.

I'd probably say

1. Sanders

2. Faulk

3. Bo

4. Walker

5. Reggie Bush

All better than AP IMO.

Barry Sanders was unstoppable even more so at the college level where not only did he have the moves but his speed at that level was a major factor. He would actually be my #1 overall especially given that OSU wasn't an elite program as far a talent around him.

Also, thx for playing right. You are correct, this is about players you've actually seen/watched live.

Eric Bieniemy and Ricky Williams would also get consideration from me at RB too.

Return man? How about former Jets draft pick Anthony Davis from Southern Cal?

his name came up a couple times, the Jets passing on Orlando Pace was an epic draft disaster. Historically bad draft by the Jets. Pace in college was the definition of a road grader. He just plowed through defenses. He got Heisman votes. His first few years were like that and he won a ring with the Kurt Warner/Marshall Faulk era Rams before he got all dinged up.

Parcells traded past Pace and walter jones (2 trades) and took James Farrior... (who they misused and let go after 4 years winning rings with Pittsburgh).

We talk about the Jets draft mistakes. On my list, this was a really huge one. Blair Thomas is on that list (Emmitt smith was in that draft). Taking Kyle Brady instead of Warren Sapp was regrettable and even Kenny Obrien over Dan Marino. The Orlando Pace draft, is in that league of disaster. If memory serves, Parcells got a ton of picks and the best ones were Dedric Ward and Jason Ferguson (round 7?)

People say Bryan Thomas instead of Ed Reed was a bad mistake, that's not fair for a 10 year starter. (and they could have picked Mike Rumph). Honestly, I don't consider Drob or even Gholston to be _as_ big mistakes, because there was not an easy opportunity to take better players in those years. The Pace draft was a huge missed opportunity.

QB - Tommie Frazier, (no question IMO the best college player I ever saw), Tebow, Peyton, Vick

RB - Reggie Bush, McFadden, Eddie George

WR - Keyshawn, Mike Williams, Crabtree

OL - Pace, Ogden, Boselli, Aaron Taylor

DL - Suh, Grant Wistrom, Peppers, Suggs, Wilkinson, Sapp

LB - Poz, Pat Fitzgerald, Maualuga, Te'o, Hawk

DB - Charles Woodson, Deion, Antonio Langham, Terry Fair was really underrated too.

Good call. I was going to mention Billy Simms. I remember Ricky Bell being pretty great too, but I liked all those USC guys back then. I know OJ was a monster, but I have no actual recollection of watching him before the Bills.

USC was fun to watch in those days with student body right, Keith Jackson commentating on the game and the cheerleaders with the tight sweaters.
