Who would y'all put? I'm younger, so my knowledge of the older players isn't as well-rounded, but I'd have (no order):
Johnny Manziel (Heisman)
John David Crow (Heisman)
Luke Joeckel (Freshman AA, 2 time AA, Outland)
Ryan Swope (best statistical WR in A&M's history)
Von Miller (2 time AA, #2 pick)
Dat Nguyen (Bednarik, Lombardi, AA, most tackles in A&M history)
Shane Lechler (Freshman AA, 2 time AA, in contention for best punter ever)
Sam Adams (Freshman AA, AA, defensive player of the year by SI, #8 pick)
Darren Lewis (5000+ rushing yards - Ag record, AA)
Kevin Smith (20 INT - Ag record, AA, #17 pick)
Need 80-90s Ags-
Lester the Molester
Gary Oliver (YEAH RIGHT)
Tons of others
Rocky Bernard and Ty Warren were great
My favorite was Jason Glenn when I went. Before him my favorite was Dat.
Quentin Coryatt Won an ESPY I believe for THE HIT Hardest heat Ive ever seen or heard!! Kyle McPherson of TCU Knocked him out and broke his jaw in 2 places!!

Because of Manziel, I'm not sure Bucky would be in the top 10. I mean, most of the top 10 should be defensive players anyway, so you're limited on how many offensive spots you're giving out to begin with.
Have to be on it: (in no particular order, just keeping track of numbers)
1 - John Kimbrough
2 - Dat Nguyen
3 - John David Crow
4 - Johnny Manziel
5 - Von Miller
I think those five should be on everyone's list right?
Should be on it:
6 - Ray Childress
7 - Sam Adams
8 - Aaron Glenn
9 - Jacob Green
Those four are probably in my next group, but there's some room for debate, and then trom there you have lots of room for debate.
Lechler might be the best punter in NFL history, but is he one of A&M's best ten players? Ryan Swope is statistically the best receiver of all time, but is he an "all time great" like a Johnny Holland or a Lester Hayes? What about a guy like Darren Lewis?

Aubs - you don't have Dat in your top 9? Hard to believe.
he's there bro
Wow completely whiffed on that.
I still think Joeckel has to be top 10. What other Olineman what we had that has been this decorated and highly thought of?
Yale Lary is the only former A&M player that is currently in the pro football hall of fame.
The next 5 after my list above would consist of:
He's not top 10 worthy but Tank Marshall was a key part of some damn good defenses in the late 70's.... Most humble man I know.
Darren Lewis (best back ever that did not win a heisman)
In no particular order
Love swope but i do not think any wr qualifies for this list since we just learned about the forward pass around 2000. Though we flirted with it during Murray's time here.
Crow (never seen him play but obligatory Heisman)
(not including the old guys like pardee and kimbrough cuz I've never seen them play)
JFF - I know he won the Heisman but hes only played one year, if things go according to plan he'll be top 3, Murray, Lewis, Smith, Adams, McElroy, Coryatt, Evans (after everything?), Murphy, Ferguson, Warren
"I make Blake Munroe carry my bags wherever I go." - Taylor Hamm
In all honesty, had we been a good football team while Jorvorskie were here he'd probably be on the list.

Doh...replace Bernstine with Miller. Sorry Rod
Loved Aaron Wallace back in late 80's. the start of the WRECKING CREW!
Under the radar favorite was fullback Chris Alexander
Adrian Peterson says hello.
In honor of March Madness I say we make a bracket of all time A&M greats, former and current, and have a daily vote to work our way through the bracket and see who comes out the fan favorite.
Your will to win will define you tomorrow.
I'm all for it if you want to put it together.
