Keith Brookings - what was the name of the other LB with KB that year? Duo was awesome
Sean jones- first time as a kid I really remember watching GT; and what stuck out was watching GT vs. Virginia.. Enough said
Ken Swilling.....to my knowledge, first DB in the game that was described as a beast!! Huge for his time
Calvin Johnson: what can you say? Best NFL player by far
Dorsey Levens: remember his NFL career, which represented us well

Doesn't anyone remember watching Lucius Sanford play?

Too little, and too slow, whatever, but on the field, pound-for-pound, Smylie Gebhart was one of the best football players I have ever seen. And what a guy, friend of mine.

RIP Smylie!

Lucius Sanford, as I recall, started at MLB as a true Freshman. At 18 years of age he was almost 30 years of age.

O- Shawn Jones, Joe Ham, Jerry Mays, CJ, BayBay
D- Pat Swilling, Ted Roof, Marco Coleman, Willie Clay, Greg Gathers (Coleman Rudolph n Keith Brooking could also easily slide into any of these slots)
Just listing those I've seen with own eyes. So many worthy that weren't listed.

Obviously it is not my place to judge other people's favorites, but I have read several Ken Swilling lovers. If you are going to put down a Swilling on your list, it ought to be Ken's older brother Pat, who was my contemporary. He was the better player. He was actually tied for sixth on my list with Ted Roof, Keith Brooking, and Marco Coleman.
Coleman Rudolf, Larry Stallings, Dave Watson, Don Toner, Mike McNames. Taz Anderson, Mike Fortier.

Ron Rogers. He used to date a girl that lived below me in Milledgeville. He was a large boy.
