Probably Miami based on what is listed. Auburn is very, very close though.

Auburn right now, but Miami is getting up there. T. Moss looks good, adding to the three you have listed (don't forget about Gore - could be an NFL sleeper when all is done). It's amazing the RB quality the Canes have had since the late 90s. Kinda reversed the whole "Quaterback U" thing.

Auburn, you forgot Stephen Davis. But Shaun Alexander is doing well for Bama. Overall though Auburn.

eh I live in Tampa now, but I did live in Cape Coral and went to Mariner Highschool which is close to Immokolee where Javarris plays. Javarris is Edge's cousin btw, and he is not that special. He's good, but we played him in football and he was no more than a good back. He broke his leg this year after he commited to Miami. He is definitely overshadowed here by Noel Devine, who will no doubt be in the NFL someday. I played against the kid, and let me tell you...he already has NFL speed easily. Scouts call him the next Barry Sanders.

sorry to get off subject...but if you haven't seen this kid...prepare to be amazed.


I would have to say that Auburn is leading the race right now, but dang, the U has definitely produced way more amazing players then anyone else.

I will have to go with Miami. They always had a great RB support down there and it should continue.

I really hope he comes to The U, he's expected to, but nothing is for certain these days.

Opps... about the Dominick Davis thing... :smackhead

And I forgot to include Steven Davis for Auburn...

I would have to go with Auburn with Miami at a close second...

If you are talking ALL-TIME I would have to go with USC, which has produced OJ Simpson, Marcus Allen, Mike Garrett, Anthony Davis, Ricky Bell, Charles White....I could go on and on. They also have a guy right named named Reggie Bush who probably was just as deserving as Matt Leinart for the Heisman last year, and I think Bush has a good shot this year.

I think bush is the front runner...but if Leinart keeps playing great just tossing up a bunch of tds the next couple weeks and looks dominant i dont see how you can give him his 2nd heisman ;)

bush will win the heisman, period

miami has put out great backs since the 70s, too. but it's hard to argue against o.j. and marcus allen

OU could of been on that list had our great running backs not broken there legs in the pros.


Didnt Billy Sims like rush for nearly 2000 yards in his rookie season?

Steve Owens and Billy Vessels both broke there legs in the NFL, I cant remeber bout Joe Washington, and about Adrian Peterson, he was rdy for the pros his freshman year. :D

I guess I'll be the first to say Texas. At least their percentage is good. All of their last 3 starters (Priest, Ricky, Benson, did I miss anyone?) are on a team. Plus, the vision that Priest and Ricky have is better than 95% of the backs in the league.

Miami also had Najeh Davenport and James Jackson. Not only is Miami QB U but also RB U and TE U (Franks, Shockey, Winslow, now Olsen) and LB U (Vilma and D.J. Williams are the new breed in the NFL)...it's simply amazing the kind of pro talent UM puts up every year. A lot of guys from schools like Oklahoma and Texas don't make it in the pros, but UM's guys are something special.

Miami hasnt produced a top flight qb since vinny testaverde. But i will agree they are the rb, te, and lb U

I think its too early to tell. 2 of the major guys from Auburn havent played a complete season and same with Benson.


I would say CURRENTLY in the NFL, the U, but Auburn has the most potential to jump over them with Caddy and Ronnie.

I have to say Auburn for Running backs... at least of the recent history.

The U did produce the most Pro players overall... but not the best Running backs. Sorry. But Auburn and USC have put out the BEST running backs.

Miami produces the best pro players.

But not QB's
examples: Ken Dorsey and Brock Berlin

In my opinion Miami produces the best RBs as of late, they also produce the best TEs and LBs in my opinion. the whole team is NFL worthy
