And stars have more to do with coaching. I tell you though, Ben Axon, Giles, and Hill's were guys that pissed me off bad!

Here's what I know for sure about Dukes, when asked about the depth when Kelcy and Jerideau were hurt Brad Lawing said it would be surrat, dixon and then dukes in the middle. So from that I infer he is behind dixon jr and surratt right now, which is ok given his eligibility level. DTs that can play in this league before they are RS-soph/juniors are just abnormal. Dixon Jr. is a huge upside surprise.

Default Re: Did these players live up to their rating?

I'll play... and no, I didn't read the other replies yet, so sorry if I'm repeating what others might have said:

2002:

Ricardo Hurley - 5 star No. Injuries kept him from reaching his potential.
Randy Jackson - 5 star No.
Darel Slay - 5 star Good player? Yes. All SEC? No.
Aryhel Freeman -4 star Yes, good player
Kenny Irons - 4 star No. For whatever reason had an attitude problem here, Auburn reaped the benefits.
Jabari Levy - 4 star Yes. Started on the line for us. Was he All SEC? No. Did he start? Yes.
Corey Peoples - 4 star No.
Moe Thompson - 4 star On the field, yes for a season. Off the field...NO
Troy Williamson - 4 star Yes

2003:

Demetris Summers - 5 star No. Million dollar legs, .05 mind
Marcus Lawrence - 4 star No.
Blake Mitchell - 4 star Yes. Started at QB, won quite a few games.
Syvelle Newton - 4 star Yes. Should have been a 5 star. Did everything that was asked of him, true team player. Would have made millions in the NFL had we used him as a WR earlier.

2004:

Marque Hall - 4 star No.
C.J. Barber - 4 star No.
Dorian Capers - 4 star No.

2005:

Jonathan Hannah - 4 star No. There's a reason we were able to steal him from VT.
O.J. Murdock - 4 star No.
Carlos Thomas - 4 star No.

2006:

Garrett Anderson - 4 star Yes. Injuries plagued him, but he started.
Kenrick Ellis - 4 star No. Another head case.
Hutch Eckerson - 4 star Yes. Solid linemen
Chris Smelley - 4 star No. Started, but never with confidence.
Kevin Young - 4 star Yes.

2007:

Chris Culliver - 5 star Yes. Cully had a great career here.
Cliff Matthews - 4 star Yes, should have been a 5 star.
Mark Barnes - 4 star No. Elusive as a ghost.
Stephen Garcia - 4 star Yes. Warrior-poet.
Dion Lecorn - 4 star Yes. Hear me out, moved around, did what was asked, hobbled by injury.
Quintin Richardson - 4 star No. Should have been All SEC.
Travian Robertson - 4 star Yes.
Ladi Ajiboye - 4 star Yes.
Jason Barnes - 4 star No
Clifton Geathers - 4 star Yes
Joseph Hills - 4 star No
Melvin Ingram -4 star Yes, should have been six stars
Brian Maddox - 4 star Yes
Weslye Saunders - 4 star Sorta. Huge talent, questionable character.

2008:

Eric Baker - 4 star No. Poor guy, injuries kept him from showing what he could do
CC Whitlock - 4 star Yes.
Antonio Allen -4 star Yes
Jarriel King - 4 star Yes
Akeem Auguste - 4 star Yes

2009:

Stephon Gilmore - 4 star Yes
Damario Jeffrey - 4 star Yes
Jarvis Giles - 4 star No
Alshon Jeffery - 4 star Yes
Leon Mackey - 4 star No
Tony Straughter - 4 star No
Chaz Sutton - 4 star Yes
Ben Axon - 4 star No
Ronald Byrd - 4 star No
Duane Chisolm - 4 star No...although I'm tempted to say yes.
Matt Coffee - 4 star No
Josh Dickerson - 4 star Yes
Devonte Holloman - 4 star Yes
Lamar Scruggs - 4 star No

2010:

Marcus Lattimore - 5 star Who?
Victor Hampton - 4 star Yes
A.J. Cann - 4 star Yes
Qua Gilchrist - 4 star Yes
Ace Sanders -4 star Yes

2011:

Jadeveon Clowney - 5 star Yep
Kelcy Quarles - 4 star Yep
Brandon Shell - 4 star Yes...the light seems to have come on
Damiere Byrd - 4 star Yes
Philip Dukes - 4 star No (although there is time)
Sheldon Royster - 4 star No
Brison Williams - 4 star Yes

2012:TOO EARLY TO TELL

Mike Davis - 4 star
Shaq Roland - 4 star
Jerell Adams - 4 star
Jordan Diggs - 4 star
Chaz Elder - 4 star
Jody Fuller - 4 star
Joe Harris -4 star
Brock Stadnik - 4 star

Of the ones I ranked, I think I got it to 37 - 29 in favor of yes. That's a 56% success rate in recruiting.

So...

Mike, did you see Vic last weekend? The dude was missing tackles left and right! He was out of position, wasn't wrapping up, and was getting bounced like a ping pong ball. The dude can cover, but his fundamentals are a steaming pile of ____!

Absolutely! The guy showed TREMENDOUS potential but just couldn't let himself be humbled, or get his lips off the roach.

Summers was a disappointment for me too but he had the talent it was just him being too immature to handle it. When he was out there, he produced.

Default Re: Did these players live up to their rating?

I agree with EvilChicken. A 5* should perform like Antonio Allen did last year, or how Clowney has performed this year. A 4* should perform like Ace Sanders has this year, or how Cliff Matthews performed throughout his career. Under these guidelines, Culliver did not produce at that level, and so on. A lot of those guys had solid careers, but did not live up to the rating.

Antonio Allen actually performed above his rating, as did a lot of the 3* guys.
