@Datbayoubengal - Calvin Ridley is overrated? What planet are you on? He was a true freshman last season and had 89 receptions for 1045 yards. That's an 11.y yard avg along with 7 td's. Yea, he's overrated.

He is not a top 2 WR in the country sorry. He is very good, but not that.

I said he was overrated. He did great as a freshman but morons already have him as an all American over the guys I listed is nonsense. Kirk had over 1000 yards and 7 TDs with 12.6 ypr as a true freshman, plus he was a monster on special teams. KD Cannon had 1030 yards and 7 TDs as a true freshman averaging 17.76 ypr as a #2 in 2014 and even this year as a #2 to Coleman and getting down to 3rd string and even RBs being his QB, he still had 868 yards and 6 TDs averaging 17.36 ypr. In 2014 Mike Williams had 1030 yards and 6 TDs averaging 18.07 ypr and was considered a 1st round prospect before a neck injury in game one took him out in 2015. He is back this year with Watson as his QB. You probably don't even realize just how good guys like Corey Davis and Gabe Marks even are. Typical Alabama fans though. Don't know or care about shite outside of their own program. Ridley Being picked as a 1st team All American is typical Bama bias.

Calvin Ridley is so overrated. No way I would put him over Christian Kirk, KD Cannon, Corey Davis, or Mike Williams.

I can't help but notice that All-American team has a distinctly southern flavor. Nice.
