    1 Denzel Perryman, SR - MLB, Miami Denzel is the reigning Bednarik Award winner and is the leader of the Miami defense

    I have a question so how did you determine these rankings? I am looking at my QB ranking, did you take the average ranking of all my quarterbacks? Because some how I got a walk on that shouldn't be on my team. I tried cutting him, but it didn't work for some reason. I am curious if that ranking would improve if you didn't include him.

    For QB I only used the top two to determine the rankings. Each position was a little different, and some could have been broken out even more.

    QB - 2
    HB - 3
    WR - 4
    OL - 7
    DL - 6 (3 DT,3 DE) this is where I had most problems, and didn't want to separate
    LB - 5 I think
    CB - 4
    S - 3

    Boom29 - I'm surprised WR Malcolm Mitchell didn't get more love in your WR rankings - He had over 1,000 yards and 10 TD's last year and is rated a 95 or 96 OVR this year.

    But nice work nonetheless.

    I considered putting him up there, but I feel his stats benefits from teams trying to stop Georgia's rushing attack. I don't see him as a focal point of the offense unlike the three receivers on the list.

    For what it's worth, I took OVR into account, but didn't base my Top 3s on it. Also, I made some general assumptions considering there's only so much information out there.

    Fair point and I can't disagree with anything you said. I've done lists like this before so I totally understand that you made your judgements based on the information at hand.

    Top halfback... but no love in the top HB corps in the league?

    This shit is more rigged than the AM team draft!

    I think Enchilada fits right in with MexiRican's QB as the lowest rated of the starting QBs.

    I'm sure defenses will find your Enchiladas mighty tasty.

    Lane got the top spot because defenses are designed to stop him and he is still successful. Can't you be happy with that :p

    Jadeveon Clowney takes that #2 DE personal!

    He got 5 sacks, 1 FF, caused 3 INTs and drew 2 holding penalties in week 1. Trust me, its gonna get worse! FEAR THE SC D-LINE!

    Tell him that if he didn't underachieved the past two years he would have been #1.

    Haha, I imagine that DCD didnt control his D-line, while I do, about 90% of the time.

    I looked to see how close he is to the school record of 29 sacks and realized that coming into this game Clowney only had 13 career sacks. I was shocked.
