    Where was your DT rated Mutt?

    Did the awr rating make a huge difference in what the overall is?

    AWR was 61

    He was the #1 overall recruit, and he was added in the late recruiting period in the offseason.

    Surprise: Hamby a 3 star WR comes rated as a 80 overall

    Biggest: Hamby is the highest rated at 80, but Luke Nelson will be the best recruit out of the class........

    i'm not sure about bust, but I'm pretty happy with this 1 star FB I got, he was a 67 overall i think. not bad at all considering a walk-on I got at the position was a 44.

    most excited about Chris McCoy the 5-star QB added in the off-season. 95 break tackle. I'll be running some wild turkey formations with him at WR. I red-shirted him this season though. Still not sure if I made the right decision or not.

    Biggest Bust - Allan Brown, 4 star DE that came in at a 73 OVR, while two 3 stars came in well over him at him 78 and 75 respectively.

    Biggest Surprise - 3 star QB, that came in as a 79 OVR, as well as the 9 rated HB that came in as an 83 OVR recruit.

    Overall, I thought last night was fun, and I think the new recruits made that happen.

    i may be in the minority, but i enjoy how some 3 stars are better than 4 stars. happens in real life.

    yeah the new recruits last night really made it fun.

    plus it seems like you cannot get a top recruit without having 3+ users already after him. makes it even more fun.

    then hearing Drifter after Matthews decided on Mutt was hilarious.

    Biggest Bust: :4stars: CB(JUCO) Ryan Shaw

    Coming at 4.48 speed I thought he be high 70s overall, but he comes in at 75 overall.


    Biggest Surprise: :2stars: G Nick Douglas

    Only a 2 star, but came in at 70 overall & 78 strength.


    Recruit to watch: :3stars: TE Christian Brown

    At 6'7" & 262 lbs with 74 catching, he will be a definate threat in the red zone.
