[quote]Apparently some of you A&M folks have really bought-in to the recruiting ranking fever. Lsu and Bama laughs at you man.[/quote]
It's the truth. Most first round draft picks this year were 3 stars. And teams play above their ranking every year. It's about coaching and talent scouting.

Yeah I think the idea that a safteys and CBs roles are very different are changing. Especially in a 3-4 scheme. With 5 WR looks, Safteys have to do the work of a CB more often than in the past. I think Bailey will be rotate around the defense like Vaccaro did a lot last year. ...
