Wow...how does Clay Matthews get left of this team?

Great squad! I wonder how many other schools could even field a team. That said, how can any squad leave off Clay Matthews? He would start over either DE listed.

What a great team for Pete Carroll and his mostly TROJAN coaching staff to work to acquire. A future super bowel could then showcase the great USChawkes How about a three deep chart of NFL TROJANS for Pete?

Fargas was much better than LenDale this year

How many of these guys were recruited by Coach O? Good to have him back doing his thing in the land of Troy

Honorable mention to Kaluka Maiava as well.. had some quality starts for the Browns this year

Where is C. Matthews? should be there instead of Rivers for damn sure

I think Clay Matthews should be on this list somewhere. Perhaps in Keith Rivers' spot?

Mark Sanchez should be on this list before Palmer. Mark--rookie--has 2 Playoff victories to Palmer's--7 year Veteran--zero.

I'd take Sanchez over Palmer any day!

Maualuga? 2nd round pick and no love on the All-Trojan Squad. What, is he going to be calling the game with Erin Andrews?

No onw would be able to run up the midle with Patterson and Ellis there!!!

How does Marcus Allen and Taylor Mays among others get left off this list?

You realize it says Trojans "currently in the league" right?

I realized it right after sending it. Oh well...

I think I'd go with Clay in the Elephant role instead of Frostee as a DE.
