Which school?

Recommended Posts

Defensive End:

Either way you look at it, the state of Tennessee takes this cake:

Tennessee.....if you count Reggie White as a DE, he along with Doug Atkins would give the Vols the title here.

....but I don't.

So you have Tennessee State with: Richard Dent and Claude Humphrey  as the choice.

Last position....unless I decide to do kickers and punters, which I may:

Outside Linebacker 

A bit of a dilemma.  Only one school has produced two "pure"  OLBs that have made the HOF:

Penn St.  Jack Ham,  Dave Robinson

But two other schools have produced one pure OLB, and each had another listed at DE/OLB:

Pitt: Ricky Jackson and DE/LB Chris Doleman

North Carolina:  Lawrence Taylor and DE/LB Julius Peppers

So, what does one choose? The school with the two pure OLBs...or one of the schools with the hybrids?  

I think my choice is one with the hybrids....because of the quality of the players involved. The Choice:

North Carolina.
