guess Beanie and Zeke don't measure up.

I'd put Zeke, Hyde, Beanie and Eddie (if they're putting Ron Dayne on here I'm putting Eddie George) up against most of their Notable Player lists at RB.
Since 98, we really only have Beanie and Zeke. Unless I am forgetting someone.

Eddie ran for 1500+ yards....in 2000.
For the Titans
Hand up...I misunderstood the premise. I thought if they played in the NFL from 98 til now
Since 98 our Top 3 would be Zeke, Hyde and Beanie which is better than a couple groups on their list.
No love for JK huh? Considering he is on pace to rush for 1,000+ yards in his first three years on campus
uuummmmmmmmmm.....Eddie George, Carlos Hyde, Rod Smith, Mike Weber, Boom Herron, you could argue Curtis Samuel as an RB if they are using Pryor for the QBU section.
Pretty interesting to me that they don’t even mention NC State on the QB list when very recently they had the most active starting quarterbacks in the NFL...don’t think they hold that title anymore, but they have Philip Rivers and Russell Wilson

My guess is that they gave credit for Russell Wilson to Wisconsin.
Each of Oklahoma's last two starting QBs have won the Heisman and also been drafted number 1 overall. So I think it's safe to say if you're a QB you want to play for Lincoln Riley right now cause he knows what he's doing. Hopefully Day has similar levels of success at that position.

Not really. Riley is widely considered to be a QB guru and a good one at that. Two Heisman winning QBs in his first two years as HC is nothing to turn your nose up at. Why do you think Jalen Hurts is getting Heisman buzz this year despite having obvious flaws in his game? Granted if Hurts actually ends up winning the Heisman and getting drafted number 1 overall next year that will give us a sense of how good Riley really is at developing QBs.
They left Clemson off WRU? Wow, Hopkins, Watkins, Bryant and Williams is a pretty good list.
more WRs: Santonio Holmes, Michael Jenkins, Chris Carter, Joey Galloway; Anthony Gonzales. ALL first rounders!
This list only looked at 1998 to 2018, do Galloway (drafted in 95) is not eligible.
didnt read the article oops... I felt like Courage
They need a list of total players currently on NFL rosters from each university. TOSU has to be pretty far up there. Saw a list on 11W recently and was amazed at the number of Buckeyes
“Being average means you are as close to the bottom as you are to the top.” John Wooden
I think the article would be MUCH more on point if they added a couple of words to the title..
Instead of... "Which schools produce the most talent at each position"
should be.... " "Which schools produce the most TOP END talent at each position"
They've ranked these schools with the top heavy obvious picks instead of what the title suggests... most..
I really don't care to be pigeonholed in to a position specialty. I want Ohio State to be "Championship U" - and right up there at every position -
