  • Who is the best D2 player to ever play in the NFL?

    Adam Thielen had a huge performance that helped the Vikings get a big upset win in New Orleans. Thielen currently is the best D2 player in the NFL. When it’s all set and done, he will be up there in the conversation of best D2 players to ever play in the NFL.

    Who in your mind is the best D2 player to ever play in the NFL?

        John Mobley, Gene Upshaw, Darrell Green (as mentioned)....a guy named Walter Payton. Thielen is good but he's not close to being in the conversation for best D2 player ever.

          I believe Jackson State was already FCS/1-AA when Payton was there, no?

            Payton played there from 1971-1974 and Jackson State was D2 through 1976.

            Not that he can hold up to guys that have awards named after them, but Jahri Evans was pretty good.

              Hmm. I just saw he was named an All-American in 1974 and it was an All-American team with all other D-I players. Thanks!

                Totally forgot that Jackson St. was D2 way back in the day... Walter gets my vote.

                    He is in the initial class in the D2 HOF.

                      ROd Smith is not Walter Payton, but should be really high on the list.

                      James Thrash had a really good NFL career too.

                      I feel dirty having written that

                          John Brown is doing pretty well, too. Especially when you consider the QB's he has worked with.

                            I have to add Brandon Carr... hasn't missed in a game in forever. I suspect my bias might be showing.
