Nice list. As a Buckeye, I'd like to see Orlando Pace on there, but to each his own.
he wouldn't let his players pose in the Playboy All-American magazine edition, he said, "Cause you can't play football with an erection."
I would say Bronko Nagurski at fullback. I'll let others take you to task on the rest of your post.
Or maybe Jerome Bettis.
He's definitely interchangeable with Ogden. There is definitely reason to put Pace there. I tried to be as non-bias as possible lol.
Alright, I'll edit him in there.
Nice list, I would have to seriously consider adding David Palmer at PR/ATH. Mad skillz

I think one of the WR's should be Larry Fitzgerald
I would take Emmit Smith over Hershel but there's a number of RB's you could put there.
You don't have a tight end listed.

I would have put Warrick, Megatron, Braylon Edwards, Charles Rogers, and many others before him. Don't really understand the Broyles selection.
Replace Tommie Frazier with David Klingler.
Replace Ryan Broyles with Randy Moss.
Id take Percy Harvin over Ryan Broyles.
Harvin was so much more dynamic than Broyles, if there was just a ATH spot id put Harvin or Reggie Bush.
Id also take Tebow at QB over Tommy Frazier.
Broyles is the all-time leader in career receptions. That definitely counts for something, but I (and I think most) would argue that his numbers are as much a product of his system as his talent.
I agree. Give me college Randy Moss all day.
After thinking about it, if I was going to put together an all-time WR corps, my 3 wide set would have Moss on one side, Larry Fitzgerald on the other and Peter Warrick in the slot. I'm sure there are deserving WRs from earlier eras, but those guys put up such amazing numbers and highlight reels that they are tough to beat.
I could easily name a half dozen wide receivers over those named.
You'll never get a consensus at qb, so your pick there is really not worth arguing over...
Very respectable list overall though
Randy Moss could not be covered by anyone on the planet.
The only time in his life Bobby drew a hard line with a player and it cost him at least two national titles.
Im thinking that you have to have Bruce Smith on there.
Can you imagine Randy Moss and Peter Warrick on the same college team?! Shame of shames that that didn't happen.
Need to go at least two deep at every position to keep your head from exploding and even then it's not a certain.
The number two RB alone would keep me up at night. Trent Richardson, Ron Dayne, Barry Sanders, Bo Jackson, Ricky Williams, Reggie Bush? I mean where does the madness end?
P-Brad Wing. Will be the highest punter to ever be taken. Will leave as a redshirt sophomore. Half of his punts were downed inside the 20
If anyone thinks Jerry Rice doesn't get one of the wr slots, you should probably follow something other than CFB
I would also have Barry Sanders as RB but thats just me. Also you tell Mean Joe Green hes didnt make the cut.
Jerry made his name in the NFL, not the college ranks.
I expected to take heat for picking Broyles. But stats don't lie:
Leader in all time recs
Leader in all time rec yards
3rd in all time TD's for a WR
Can you guys at least agree with me for Broyles as the slot WR?

You might want to consider adding a TE to your list as well (Ozzie Newsome) maybe?
