      Great list a few alternates for me:

      Shawn Asiata and Wolfman combo was awesome. I say Wolfman over Joe with Fua would be beastly. Also hard to leave off the Dirty Bird he did more with less.

      Paul Kruger and Reilly need to be on this list. 

      JJ is going to surpass Sean Smith by the end of his career. 

      Shaky and Clay also hurt my head a lot. I actually think Covey is just as good. 

      Wishnowsky is the better punter. Love Hackett but even he has said Wish is better.

      EDIT: Alex Smith is the best Ute QB for me. Weddle over Rojo.

        Reilly’s douchebaggery on radio shows prevents him from being on lists like these. 

        We have too many running backs to choose from. Joe Williams was the most explosive. 

        Joe Williams and Chris Fuamatu-Ma’afala stand out as freaks of nature, that shredded defenses.

          I still like Wolfman. He reminds me of the great Sanders.  Talent around him below the standard he was up against. Still rushed on all of them like a beast. Undersized for what Utah asked for him honestly. EVERY defense knew he was coming but he still did it. Abysmal passing attack hardly any threat to pass consistently yet he did it all. 

          He epitomized Utah Football in a transition stage and a f**king kicker screwed him over from a chance to play in a championship game. If he played against Colorado Utah is in the first ever PAC12 title game.

        Did you ever watch Ma’afala play?

        Did you ever watch Henry Lusk play?

        Did you ever watch Errol Tucker play?

         

        The KR/PR position is stacked, I can understand shuffling there. But TE is not stacked at all and Murphy isn’t at the top. Ma’afala is an NFL runningback, stayed in NFL for over 10 years.

          I love CF-M, but it is also hard to argue against Eddie Johnson and Jamal Anderson as our best RBs.

          Some of these were personal choices, but I strongly believe many of the players Utah has had since joining the PAC-12 are superior to those that come before. Especially when you take into account they played against superior competition.

          JWIV and Devontae Booker carried two horrible offenses in a superior football league and are #1 & #2 for single season rushing in Utah football history. For perspective, Devonatae Booker has more rushing yards in a carry (only played two Years) than Ma’afala’s three year career. John White IV is our record holder for TDs and yards in a single season.

          As for Jake Murphy, Utah’s TE’s have been lack luster and none of them have been very memorable. I think in terms of raw Talent, Jake Murphy is up there. Utah just didn’t utilize his talent, which Utah has been criticized for.

          Also, some players were purely on the list because of their NFL careers. I could have easily replaced Steve Smith, while he is a Ute/NFL legend, he was fairly pedestrian at Utah. I included Dres because he has been our only 1,000 yard receiver since joining the Pac-12 in a mediocre offense. Easily could have included David Reed.

          Erroll Tucker was incredible. In my opinion, it’s Tucker and then everyone else when it comes to KR/PR.

            Reggie broke records though.

      Kautai Olevao should be on the LB list just for his hit on Ronny Jenkins.
