Reading the thread about that DE from Michigan being compared to Woodley got me thinking it might be fun to try and build an entire offense or defense from only one school and see which schools might have the most successful current NFL players.

Let's start with Michigan defense since I'm already talking about it. Due to an excess of linebackers and lack of DLinemen, this team will run a 3-4.

Here's a website that will help: http://espn.go.com/nfl/college/_/letter/m

DE Alan Branch
NT Gabe Watson
DE James Hall

OLB Lamarr Woodley
ILB Larry Foote
ILB David Harris
OLB Dhani Jones

CB Leon Hall
FS Marlin Jackson
SS Jamar Adams
CB Charles Woodson

Overall the guys on the Dline might be out of place/out of system, but they are big and would clog up blockers and allow a stellar group of linebackers to make plays. The DBs have two shutdown corners and a third corner being inserted at FS as a coverage guy. The SS is a backup, but the only real option. Hopefully the Coverage would be good on the back end and the linebackers would make all the necessary run stopping plays to make this a very good defense.

I've got to work on my offensive line-

but my "skill" guys have you beat:

QB: Donovan McNabb
RB: Jim Brown
RB: Larry Csonka
WR: Marvin Harrison
WR: Art Monk
TE: John Mackey

OL: we'll start with Wolfley- I've got to do some research to come up with the rest ;)

those are some nice skill players, but not exactly the current NFL players that I proposed using.

Other than RT and the third and fourth WRs, this is a darn good team.
