Maybe Vadal Alexnder over Herman Johnson, Mett or Flynn over Russell and Dewayne Bowe over Lafell.

mett's senior season was remarkable. I'd probably take him over jamakus. That said jamakus was an outstanding qb for lsu. I would like to have seen him go lower in the draft to a good team. He very well could be playing today.

Would rather have Chad Jones at punt returner than Skyler Green.

with that group of players around him, would rather have Flynn than Russell at QB

Helms was clearly the best center under Miles, followed by Lonergan.

Lafell really sticks out on this list. I don't think Ching looked past the career stats. Bowe, Beckham, and Randle were all better. You could probably make a case for Davis and Doucet for being at least as good as Lafell.

How do you not have Chad Jones over Reid?

Lord, Id pay a million dollars to have these guys all together on one the same team for 1 year!!! I dont think ANY team in the country would score over 17 points and they would prob beat 1-2 NFL teams!!!!!!

Why are y'all keep saying to replace Sam Montgomery? Not only did he have more sacks and TFL here, he did it in 8 less games, and was not a liability in run support.

People need to stop looking at "oh Mingo was fast" and start looking at how Montgomery crashed the pocket, and ran QBs to Mingo's side.

Mingo doesn't win in production or value (most just a speed rusher). He's faster, but that's about it.

Mett over Jamarcus every day and twice on Sunday

DBU for sure.

Jacob Hester is the most overrated player in modern SEC history.

this is a honest answer, Saban was 5 years at lsu which meant he spent 4 years with denardos players , les has been here 10 years with the last five years all his !

I agree with Dwayne Bowe over Lafell and Mingo over Montgomery. Otherwise, it's pretty much perfect.

Honest question - how many are Saban recruits?
Reply40 months
I would have Dwayne Bowe over Lafell.

Nevermind! Silly me ??

What about Trindon Holliday?

Crazy good secondary on that list.
