Juju Smith at 62?!?
They're also saying right now that Michigan is in the running for Leonard Fournette
ESPN is all about measurables, they always seem to have the biggest/fastest kids over the 'football players'
no demarcus christmas is laughable. hes the main one that stuck out to me
also a RB at 1 is ridiculous. usually 1 is a DE because they usually are the biggest most dominating guys and have retarded sacks against 240lb high school OL. how many years now has a DE been #1? 4 by my count on ESPN. Nkendiche, mario edwards, clowney, ronald powell
FSU Ambassador to the masses
They have Moten ahead of Clark, Valentine and Christmas. crazy
Well considering he could be considered an athlete that could be a top D player also, I disagree. A freak in every sense of the word.
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Why is that I rather a offense player they have more impact.
generally in high school its a defensive guy that has the most impact. guys like clowney and nkemdiche are so much better as athletes and alot farther along physically than guys theyre going against. its easy to get sacks when you weigh more than half the OL and are faster as well.
Agree that Fournette is best player in this years class, but those rankings are horrible. ESPN rankings should be dropped from the composite rankings. ESPN never shows states west of TX any respect. If I were an SEC homer I'd probably like a lot.
Were you expecting more from him?
LF is a beast. So I'm not singling him out.
But, I just feel that stud DLmen are more valuable, and rare.
Are they though? If LF lives up to expectations he's a once every 10/15 year RB. Elite DL seem to be a lot more common than that. Will say I'd rather have a few elite DL than an elite RB.
Even if he is a once every 10/15 yr Rb, he still has to rely on the OL unit.
An elite De or Dt can cause havoc pretty much on there own.

Agree. QB, DE, LT only. Maybe a DT
Adrian Peterson, Reggie Bush, Trent Richardson, Darren McFadden and a few others disagree.
They where #1 ranked HS recruits?
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
Nope, literally none of them were
Ya, so I'm not sure what he was trying to say.
Yes at their position, except Adrian Peterson he was #1 overall.
One example, Trent Richardson was clearly the best player in his class and recruiting sites not having him #1 overall because he's a running back makes no sense. Same can be said about any poistion except kicker, punter and fullback
Really? That's laughable. Do the names AD, Trent, etc ring a bell with you at all?
I agree he was the best player in that class, but I don't really care he wasn't at the time
I looked at the 2009 nice class and outside of Trent it was pretty damn awful
