    Can we get Cordarrelle Patterson as honorable mention for returner? He might have been my favorite part of the Dooley era.

    Sutton over Wade. Coleman over Sears. Haralson, Mahelona, and Meachem are kind of iffy, too.

    Barnett is better than Haralson imo.

    I would put Dan Williams over Mahelona.

    At receiver, there hasn't been guys that had multiple good years.

    Jesse Mahelona over John Henderson?

    RB has been sad until Hurd.

    I was always a big Cedric Houston fan.

    RockyHill Loves Auburn more than Tennessee.

    Me too. It was a beautiful thing him shooting like a rocket through big holes.

    Are we talking peak value or career value?

    I'd put JRM into the LB discussion, at least. Especially if he winds up staying. Bobby Meacham is definitely the WR if we're talking peak value.

    Cosey Coleman was 90's so he's not in the OL discussion. Am I missing a Coleman?

    Whoever took down all the historical stats at UTsports.com inj favor of year by yer reviews since 2003 should be took out and stoned.

    Worst vision of any RB who has ever played the game. I think dude ran with his eyes closed.

    Maybe he meant Reggie? Anyways I'd take Fred Weary as the best olineman in the past 15 years.

    If we can have two safeties, I want Gibril Wilson on the other side.

    That Hardesty spin-move, though.

    Mo Hard was great his senior year.

    Barnett at DE and Henderson at DT.

    Will Bartholomew at FB.

    Was thinking Cosey was here in 2000, but it looks like 99 was his last season.

    Should have used him more like Andy Reid used Brian Westbrook. He was great in the open field. Riggs should have been our between the tackles guy.

    Stephens and Henry are within the past 15. Outside them, Foster has been a productive pro, Hardesty likely would have been if not for 500 injuries, and Riggs and Coker were decent college backs. Neal wasn't horrible, but really, really needed a RB coach. Ultimately, I don't think RB talent has been the issue, it's been a problem of misusing the talent. And that's an ongoing problem.
