    And Hankerson is a monster because he beat the all time receiving record there...it doesn't mean anything...

    Hankerson is only in his second year. He is developing into a good WR. Normally WR's don't hit their stride until year 3 or 4.

    Still not entirely sure if Miami being the stronghold for consistently churning out pro quality RB's is in effect anymore (nothing against Johnson, just speaking more towards that fact that you could typically count on certain schools like the U, Texas, and a few others to churn out pro-ready runners), or if it was Butch Jones that was doing that (note that Giovanni Bernard, the current consensus top back in the 2013 class, is from the last recruiting class Butch had at UNC). Could be both. Just food for thought.

    Their counterparts have a guy I think will get more pub next year. James Wilder Jr looks to be a stud what I have seen of him at FSU so far

    BTW... you want a RB prospect to fall in love with, go check out Rutgers starting tailback Jawan Jamison. I don't even necessarily want to get into a ton of intangibles, but I'll say one thing to address that: The guy looks like he gets stronger as he gets deeper and deeper into a game. There are a lot of parallels that can be drawn between him and another Rutgers RB (Ray Rice). And while the kid's a redshirt sophomore, given the limited longevity of RB's it wouldn't be a total shocker to see him come out this year, and if not certainly next year.
