In my view, Patrick Willis is hands down the best talent to come through Oxford in the last 35 years. Of course when you're mired on the bench behind Justin Wade (Justin Freaking Wade?!?) because your head coach
I also feel he is sorely underselling Deuce's value to the program, not only as an All-SEC RB, but also as an ambassador to the university. He seemed to have factored that in with Gentle Ben though.
He's also understating the shutdown ability that Kenyatta Lucas had. Sure, he played at the same time as Fred Smoot, the overrated, loquacious CB from Mississippi State, but their relative draft positions and NFL careers have seperated the two, severely in Lucas' favor.
I'm not sure that Rufus French belongs on this list at all.
My list - off the top of my head - would be:
1) Patrick Willis
2) Eli Manning
3) Deuce McAllister
4) Ben Williams
5) Kenyatta Lucas
6) Michael Oher
7) Everett Lindsay
8) Peria Jerry
9) Derrick Burgess
10) Bill Smith
