    And while yes Luck is more athletic, I don't think you will see him scramble as much in the NFL as he has at Stanford. In the pocket he is very similar to Peyton. He has similar arm strength. And the aforementioned cerebral part.

    Robert Griffin III- Steve Young
    RG3 and Young are both finess runners with good not great arms. Both have great accuracy. Both needed/will need developing.

    Ryan Tannehill- Alex Smith
    Athletes, successful in college. Not a franchise QB.

    Trent Richardson- Rashard Mendenhall
    Mendenhall and Richardson are both power downhill runners. Neither can break off 60 yard runs, but are great pure runners. Jones-Drew is much more well rounded and much faster.

    Lamar Miller- Clinton Portis
    Super speedy, a little hesitent. Great triangle numbers.

    Montee Ball- LaDanian Tomlinson
    Touchdown monsters, well rounded, great cutting ability. Does not have Tomlinson's straight line speed.

    Chris Polk- Willis McGahee
    Workhorse with underated speed

    David Wilson- Jamaal Charles
    Great speed and cutting ability

    LaMichael James- Barry Sanders
    James is very similar to Sanders. And he runs with more power than guys like Darren Sproles. Is he Sanders caliber? No. But yes I would say he is a poor man's Sanders.

    Justin Blackmon- Dez Bryant
    Great all around receivers but have concentration laspes. Similar athletes.

    Alshon Jeffrey- Mike Williams (USC)
    Questionable work ethic, but talent is there.

    Kendall Wright- Mike Wallace
    Great speed and route runners. Can make defenses pay.

    Dwight Jones- Vincent Jackson
    Can go up and make plays with great size and speed.

    Michael Floyd- Larry Fitzgerald
    Will make the touch catches all over the field.

    Dwayne Allen- Antonio Gates
    Great blocker with great athleticism and receiving ability.

    Coby Fleener- Heath Miller
    Great blockers with subpar speed.

    Matt Kalil- Joe Thomas
    Elite blind side protector, a bit light and worse in run blocking. Definitely not bad, just they are better at pass protecting.

    David DeCastro- Logan Mankins
    Great all around man handling guard with great technique.

    Riley Reiff- Matt Light
    Great technition who comes from Iowa and has the Patriots mold.

    Johnathon Martin- Jeff Otah
    Otah and Martin both struggle with speed rushers and are both very, very good run blockers.

    Quinton Coples- Julius Peppers
    Talent is there, both have motors that run hot/cold.

    Whitney Mercilus- Osi Umenyoria
    Great speed rushers who have a knack for stripping the football.

    Andre Branch- Jason Pierre Paul
    Great all around defensive ends with similar size. Not quite the athlete that Pierre Paul is.

    Melvin Ingram- Charles Johnson
    All around defensive end with similar measureables.

    Jerel Worthey- Corey Williams
    Thick penetrators who can make plays. Questionable motor.

    Fletcher Cox- Reggie White
    Fletcher Cox 6'4 295 rumored to run a 4.6, tweener who can play defensive end or tackle. Reggie White 6'5 300 runs a 4.6, tweener who plays defensive end and tackle.

    Devon Still- Jared Odrick
    Still and Odrick are both penetrators. Colleges tend to recruit similar players to fit their scheme, and Still and Odrick are similar athletes who both are more suited as one gap penetrators.

    Brandon Thompson- Brodrick Bunkley
    Great run stoppers who have similar athleticism and potential as penetrators.

    Vontaze Burfict- Rey Maualuga
    Bone head, but definitely has tried to change. And it has made him worse.

    Luke Kuechly- Paul Posluzny
    Technition and tackle machine who lacks the elite athleicism.

    Courtney Upshaw- LaMarr Woodley
    3-4 rush backers with great pass rushing.

    Zach Brown- Patrick Willis
    Similar athletes with great potential.

    Donta Hightower- Rolando McClain
    Similar measureables and ability coming out of Bama.

    Morris Claiborne- Champ Bailey
    Great ball skills, coverage ability, and tackling.

    Janoris Jenkins- Asaunte Samuel
    Instinct players with great ball skills.

    Dre Kirkpatrick- Malcom Jenkins
    Might be better suited for safety, registered 0 picks this year.

    Johnthan Banks- Nnamdi Asomugha
    Watch him play. Always around the ball for a corner. Lots of turnovers this season.

    Mark Barron- Darren Sharper
    Great all around safety with good form and hard hitting ability.

    Fletcher Cox to Reggie White.

      So basically you came into this thread to bash people doing what the thread was talking about? Yet you couldnt come up with your own list in DETAIL about these guys. Stop trolling and contribute to the thread and stop bashing without reason!
