A convincing argument if I ever read one.

Compare that feel good story to the last two classes (2010 & 2011) of rivals 5-star DBs that have completed their college careers listed below. 4/7 were All-Americans. 4/7 were first round draft picks. 6/7 were "day one" draft picks. 6/7 were All-Conference players.

I wonder how often 4-star running backs turn into All-American or All-Conference defensive backs.

Name College Honors NFL Draft Round
Dre Kirkpatrick All-Conference (2nd) 1st
Matt Elam All-American 1st
Dee Milliner All-American 1st
Keenan Allen All-Conference 3rd
Lamarcu Joyner All-American 2nd
HaHa Clinton Dix All-American 1st
Karlos Williams None TBD
