Considering its a comparison of who they remind you of, and not necesarily a guarantee on how their career will pan out, its not all that far off.

If we were only comparing rookies to people whose career they might emulate, but cannot assume the continued success they have, who can we compare them to? The average to bad players of the NFL? Becuase nothing is guaranteed, no matter who you compare them too.

Jamaal Anderson is built sort of like a smaller version of Julius Peppers. If he bulked up that's what he'd look like. Anthony Gonzalez is too fast to be Brandon Stokley, he's basically him + speed I guess you could say. Also, I see Sean Taylor in LaRon Landry and like most others find the AD/ED comparison reasonable.

Am I the only one who doesn't agree with comparing Brady Quinn to Tom Brady? Quinn has barely played in the NFL, and you're comparing him to a future HOF (maybe). IMO, a person has to actually play a down in the NFL before you can compare him to another peron. JMO though

Physically Quinn is miles ahead of Brady. Quinn is much more of an athlete than Tom ever thought to be. Im pretty sure that Quinn's 40 time was almost a seond better (im kidding). I dont think that these guys match up or compare well, athletically.

Beason is most like Peterson from the Jags. Peterson is 6-1, 235 pounds, and Beason is 6-0, 237 pounds.

Both play similar against the run, though I think Beason is going to be a lot better against the pass. He has already shown flashes against guys like Dallas Clark. Both bring the energy though, and that is a huge similarity.

I love Beason.

limited mobility? boller ran like a 4.65 at the combine champ, hes very mobile. you got the arm part right though. jamarcus, from wat i have seen, doesnt have any trouble moving around in the pocket either. If hes being compared to big ben, he must have some mobility again cause ben is very mobile. Quaterbacks with limited mobility are guys like kurt warner and drew bledsoe who couldnt avoid a sack to save their lives. but if kyle boller was 3 inches taller and 40 lbs heaver that would be a good comparison lol

I like the Russell-Culpepper one, but the other ones are so far off. Ginn is more of a Troy Williamson type of guy as Stallworth can actually run more than 4-5 routes. Randy Moss isn't nearly as big (weight wise) and not nearly as physical as Calvin Johnson is. Peterson is much bigger and runs angrier than Portis (Portis is still a great runner and runs angrily as well, but I've never seen anyone run like AD).

Charles Woodson is CB Jesus, and no one can ever compare to him. ;)
To me, Revis isn't nearly as thick as CW is though.
