Best College DB of the last decade
I would also say Berry. If this is a draft and Berry's off the table, I'd pick Sean Taylor
Yeahh Sean Taylor was really good but I would probably take his former teammate at "the U" Ed Reed over him.
Patrick Peterson's pretty nifty.
I know I'm breaking the rules of the question but I choose Woodson anyway.
His greatness transcends decades.
To answer the actual question, Eric Berry.
I'd have to say Dave Brandon
DB tends to break late on the ball, according to his own damn timeline
I would advise him to go to the draft early....oh wait
Too soon, too soon.
We need a Free Safety, someone who reads the game and has that ballhawking ability, no one does that better than Ed Reed.
I think its taylor mays, he had a less than stellar senior season but was lights out till then
man could he lay the lumber on someone
Reggie Nelson was pretty good.
because he's the closest thing to charles woodson
He put his heart in that shit man
I love the video of that speech, can anyone post it?
Gosh dang it OMG Shirtless!
Yes thats the one. We could really use someone like Ed Reed, IMO thats the best team of all time and he was the complete leader.
That is some passion! We def need someone like that to be a leader on our defense. Not trying to change the subject, but who was the closest thing to our vocal leader like that this year?
My vote would be Mike Martin and David Molk
I'll go a different way:
and if I can't have him, Roy Williams (Oklahoma).
There is a saying around Pittsburgh:
75% of the earth is covered by water. The rest of covered by Troy Polamalu.
Leon Hall... I remember him as a freshman beating Purdue WR Kyle Ingraham (the stork) at a jump ball in the endzone. The dude was 6'9" and little Leon beat him out...HOLY PANTS!
Leon Hall was the best Michigan DB we've had all decade. Easy.
Is right with Hall as far as Michigan DBs go.
this guy that told me Rich Rod had a stacked team in 2008 used him since he's now tearing it up at the Bengals.
He's been halfway decent for Cinci (at best), not really anything amazing, yes he's fast, but he can't cover or tackle for shit
this is a great example of a post where you should either use /s or get neg-bombed to oblivion.
it really happened though, so I don't know if that is sarcasm or not....?
I think you may have Morgan Trent confused with Leon Hall, Hall is definitely "tearing it up" Trent has glaring weaknesses and is currently stuck behind Hall, Joseph, Jones, and Jones... and for good reason. If he works really hard he'll be a serviceable Corner, but he'll never hold a candle to #29
Justin Boren. Oh wait I thought the question was "who was the biggest college DB of the last decade?" Nevermind, carry on.
Joe Haden was a complete cover corner. Darrelle Revis diddn't really blossom till he made the NFL...
I know he was only lights out for 1 season, but I'd take Earl Thomas. Texas has had some great safeties in the Griffin, Huff, Jammer. Thomas was better than all of them and that's why he left to the pros after his r-soph season.
Not only are you apparently from georgia, but you play SC2? Epic. win. Do you 1v1 much? Haha would be great to have a practice partner who appreciate the finer things in life, e.g. Michigan Football.
I mainly 2v2, but would dig a practice partner to get my 1v1 game up or play some 2v2s with you. My account is PlusFour and my character code is 390; hit me up if your interested.
Ed Reed, 'nuff said. Every time I watch that speech, I get goosebumps.
What are you talking about?
lol did you just skip right down to this part of the thread without bothering to look at 2 videos and a shit ton of comments above? im not mad that's amazing... an entire wheel of cheese?
The one about 10 posts above mine
If I had to go with one, I'd probably say Sean Taylor. However, a name I think deserves mentioning is Terrence Newman. He was lights out at KSU.
I seem to remember Antonio Cromartie being pretty damn good at FSU as well.
I played against Marlin Jackson in high school...so Im picking him. He was a complete beast.
Other than Marlin, I would have to say Ed Reed.
Roy Williams at Oklahoma was really good also.
Anthony Carter. He's timeless and thus isn't required to technically fall into the past ten years. And although he played WR, he could've played any position he chose. Thus I'm going with AC.
