It is "Humphrey" not Humphries.
As has been stated, we see this every cycle with a fan of some fanbase claiming their DB commit is better than a Bama DB commit. Thus far, Bama's DB commits that have been the subject of these arguments have outperformed their counterparts in college and have gotten drafted higher. Will that happen in this case? Who knows. Hump, Brown, and Peppers are all elite talents. I feel comfortable in saying that Hump will have a distinguished college career and will be a 1-2 round pick.
Are you seriously trying to bring in 400m times to compare football speed?
You get out of it what you put into it!
I think we should take their best 5K times personally..
Saw that. Typo on that 110m time in 17.20.
However, high school 110m hurdle height is 39 inches......college and pro is 42 inches. It's possible that the 17.20 was his 1st/only attempt at the 42 inch height.
Brown didn't make it as he didn't compete at US Youth Nationals to qualify. He most likely would have made the team if he participated in the meet.
I advise you to research and find some of Peppers' workout videos. His hips are better than you guys make it out to be. He's sick on the ladder......hard to do that without being fluid in the hips with great footwork.
There are a myriad of drills that can be done on the ladder. Best way to enhance hips and footwork.
Peppers doesn't hurdle...... Heck, I can NOT think of many elite hurdles that are 210 pounds. The only big/ muscular world class hurdler is David Oliver and he's 6'2", 205. Most hurdlers are 160-185 pounds. The fastest ever guys in the NFL didn't hurdle.....Bullet Bob Hayes and Darrell Green. Cause you can run hurdles fast (ie. Rod Woodson) doesn't mean you have more speed on the football field that Deion Sanders, Hayes, and Green.
Both are great prospects, but just because Humphrey is committed to Bama does not prove that he is better than Peppers.

This is Michigan, fergodsakes.
Re-read my post. I didn't say that it did. I said all 3 are elite talents..but I also said, based on Alabama's recent track record with DBs, that I felt comfortable stating that Hump will have a distinguished career and be a high draft pick. The others may as well.
I just get sick of these arguments EVERY STINKING YEAR with some fan comparing their player/commit to ours and how they are "better", when it rarely turns out to be true.
He hasn't committed to Alabama. It's just the favorite to land him at this point.
Both guys are solid prospects. I don't believe it's even worth arguing over to be honest.

The real question... can Humphrey cover Freddy Canteen?
lol @ this homer shit
Now that's some serious hair splitting right there
903 wins, 11 MNC/42 Big Ten titles, 3 Heisman's, Largest Stadium, Winged Helmets, The Game, Touch the Banner, The Victors @gfraley05
Our DBs suck in the NFL, our LBs suck in the NFL, our RBs suck, our QBs suck, out linemen suck, they all suck. Somehow Saban was able to coach those scrubs up to win 3 national championships. That's amazing; the guy does so much more with less than any coach in America. Proof he's the GOAT IMO.
Much like Saban is a great CFB Coach but he sucked in the Pros...
I wouldn't say he sucked. I'd just say he was average. Kiffen, Petrino, and Petrino were worse than him.
In terms of CBs being more valuable than safeties (still don't understand how everyone has "assumed" Peppers is a safety and not a CB..... But OK)..... Over the past 10 drafts a safety was the 1st DB drafted in 5 of the 10 years......CB 5 out of 10 years.
Could be 6 CB to 4 safety if you consider Malcolm Jenkins a CB. He played the position in college and for 1 year in the NFL due to injury but has played safety for 3 of his 4 NFL seasons.
Thus, it appears to me that the 1st DB selected is a combo of:
Given this, I don't understand why a CB is ranked higher due to position importance as a preliminary review of the 10 most recent NFL Drafts discredits this theory.

AJ/Julio- still debatable IMO but AJ was ranked higher by his peers in the NFL Top 100 players that recently was presented on NFL Network
Gurley/Yeldon- TBD in my opinion
They are all pretty close....but my point was that most are too close to even argue. Alabama takes their guys and wins games, I just get tired of the "player comparisons". Football is a team game.
I can't believe there are 5 pages over one spot in the rankings. I doubt that either team is too upset with who will be joining their team a year from now.
Just stating facts, unlike you trollzilla
I don't think the word fact means what you think it means
Because Peppers plays in the North. When it comes to rankings re: Peppers it doesn't matter: he's the best player in the country. Period.
Oh darn, I hate when I make people cry.
I have never actually cried over losing a football game. And to be fair, it isnt every November. In 2011 it wasn't at all. Just...most of the November's. Recently anyways. I could have said the same thing about y'all just before that. Now that you're done repaying our destruction of you guys from the decade before this past one, I suspect we will both settle back into a nice heated battle.
