#9, jordan Jefferson
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
How about character? Claiming retirement when you quit? Also was a non-factor in the title game vs Miami.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
I have to disagree.
Not only was Brooks an intrical piece on several great D's for us, but he remains one of our largest boosters, best representitives of our university, active supporters, and currently sits on our BOT.
I'd argue that, as a whole, Brooks was 10x more valuable to FSU than Young was to Texas.
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
Brooks was a favorite linebacker for me to watch play. Loved his game at FSU, and loved his game in Tampa Bay.
That being said, FSU is still a great team without him, while Texas without VY would not have been close to what they were.
Inherently QB is so much more important in the game of football. Like losing your Ace who was scheduled to pitch in game 7.

#28 Troy Davis, Iowa State
Only player in D1A history to rush for 2000+ yards twice. He was the 1996 Heisman runner-up despite winning three of the six regions. The major draw back is that his team went 5-17 in his two seasons as a starter.
Agreed and good call jdcanes
Taylor is #26
I think Woodson at #2 is debatable, but definitely:
#21- Desmond Howard
#77- Jake Long
#98- Tom Harmon
98--Harmon's a good pick, but Lawrence Taylor is close.
Pat Tillman #40
#92 - Reggie White and I don't think this one is even debatable.
Barry Sanders for #21
I'll throw in #17-Charlie Ward, #55-Marvin Jones, not sure who else wore these #'s in College.
#55 Junior Seau
#42 Ronnie Lott
In college i think Jones was better and more feared
NFL was all seau for Jones got hurt up
Homer I am, I agree.
Jones was the most vicious hitter at LB I ever saw. Had 110 tackles as a true-freshman!
Wish he and Sam Cowart had been healthy during their NFL careers.
Yeah its not homer imo
Jones was the ray lewis of college football imo
He might have been the best MLB ever in terms of college
He was just insane for 2 years
Roger Staubach #12
Archie Manning #18
Jim Plunkett #16
Eddie George #27
you are being very homer
You are too young to remember but marvin jones was incredible in college
Not many MLB's go top 5 in the NFL draft
Seau went #5 fwiw, jones went #4
