You have no favorite boards.
Last week almost 300 people voted on the offensive starters.
Time to focus on defense and special teams.
The idea is: If you could make one defense from the Noles, Gators and Canes, who would be your starters. Select the player at each position that should be the starter in September.
Stopped the voting at midnight. 330 people voted. Here are the results:
74% of the vote came from Noles fans, 13% Gators, 12% Canes, 2% unknown
LDE – Brandon Jenkins - 83%
DT – Marcus Forston – 47%
NG – Anthony McCloud – 53%
RDE – Bjorn Werner – 50%
WILL – Niguel Bradham – 56%
MIKE – Jon Bostic – 62%
SAM – Christian Jones – 78%
CB – Xavier Rhodes – 93%
CB – Greg Reid – 92%
SS – Ray Ray Armstrong – 54%
FS – Vaughn Telemaue – 56%
P – Shawn Powell – 85%
K – Dustin Hopkins – 85%
PR – Greg Reid – 85%
KR – Greg Reid – 42%
Obviously, some of the closer votes would’ve went another way had there been more Gators & Canes participation. There were some position battles that all fan bases pretty much agreed on.
Thanks to all who took the time to vote.
I'm actually surpirsed and quite happy people voted for who they THOUGHT was best...Not just completely biased for their team.
I would actually agree with most of the article...But I really wish Spence was in there as the best.
Here would be my defense
LE - Ronald Powell
DT - Shariff Floyd
DT - Marcus Fortson
RE - Brandon Jenkins
OLB - Sean Spence
MLB - Nigel Bradham
OLB - Jelani Jenkins
CB - Xavier Rhodes
CB - Greg Reid ( would have been Janoris Jenkins )
FS - Ray Ray Armstrong
SS - Matt Elam
K - Dustin Hopkins
P - Sean Powell
KR - Lamar Miller/Andre Debose
PR - Greg Reid
? at 70% of Noles picking Jones over Spence, Jones might be better down the road but you don't take a first year starter over Sean Spence, you just don't do it.
You can tell that team was picked by mostly Noles, and mostly Noles who haven't a freaking clue.
It was a toss up between Vaughn and Elam.
This would be my offense for fun
QB - EJ Manuel
RB - Lamar Miller
FB - Lonnie Pryor
WR - Travis Benjamin
WR - Andre Debose
WR - Willie Haulstead ( this is the worst year for WR's at the Big 3 I can ever remember )
TE - Jordan Reed ( I guess, we all suck at TE as well it seems.... might actually take Nick O )
OT - Seantrel Henderson/Chaz Green ( hard to decide since Seantrel isn't starting as of now )
OT - Andrew Datko
OG - Brandon Linder
OG - Brandon Washington
C - Jacob Fahrenkrug
