Greg Amsler over Eric Berry? I dont even think Amsler would say that...

I loved Amsler but we might have had 8 better players on the roster during his tenure..

No real argument with your list. Will just point out that as far as pure, athletic ability and electricity is concerned, Cordarelle Patterson is right up there with anybody.

I know, his stay was short, but man did the guy have skills.

Yep. I was going to say that he left off maybe the best of the 3 linebackers from the 1969 U.T. team in Steve Kiner. All 3 were drafted, with Reynolds 1st round, Kiner 3rd round and Walker 6th round. Spiva may still hold the record for tackles.
Of all the great Steve Kiner stories that I have heard throughout my life & from meeting him once and seeing him interviewed he always seemed like he might have been a little bit โ€œoffโ€. He had that twinkle in his eye that portrayed a guy that may have had some extra layers in his mind that not everybody possesses ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Until I read his CFB hall of fame bio I never realized that Steve later became a psychologist. In light of all the stories about his colorful nature to find out that he later became a psychologist is some funny shiz.
