every so often, there is a post about the players that we "missed" on
and some turn out to be great NCAA players, as well as NFL players

but this Pro Bowl roster proves that many just weren't highly recruited either
by us, FSU or UF
and some just left b/c they wanted to go away

does anyone remember Jason Pierre Paul's recruitment?
or dumerville, brown, marshall?

hell I remember Davin Joseph, and he just was getting away
Patrick Peterson - well we missed that one, but LSU isn't exactly a down program


amazing to see that talent from the big three here - Cali, Texas and Florida

From what I remember JPP was recruited to USF as an OT. Its save to say even their coaches didnt expect him to turn out to be an nominee of NFL DPOY

I think Pierre Paul was a juco transfer... He literally spent like a semester at USF... I think he was more of a late bloomer... He's a stud now... Just to show that talent can be found anywhere as well as players developed differently than others...
