        I like all those except the Mays to Williams one. Mays probably compares more to some guys that played awhile back like Dennis Smith and Steve Atwater.

        • Here's some strong ones that have been tossed around over and over and over and over the past year or two

          Gerald Mccoy --> Richard Seymour
          Ndamukong Suh --> Kevin Williams
          Dez Bryant --> Andre Johnson
          CJ Spiller --> Chris Johnson
          Brandon Graham --> LaMarr Woodley
          Eric Berry --> Ed Reed

            Mays is a big safety who's a big hitter, so of course he's Roy Williams! Never mind the fact that they have completely opposite styles of play.

                  -Colt McCoy = Matt Hasselbeck
                  -Tony Pike = Erik Ainge

                    That's a pretty optimistic view for a lot of those guys especially Bryant (Andre Johnson) and Spiller (Chris Johnson)

                    Also i liken Suh to Seymour more so than McCoy.

                    • well that's who they're being compared to the most. Best case scenarios I suppose. McCoy has a better skillset to fit in the 5 technique than Suh ideally, but if you think about it Kevin Williams and Richard Seymour are fairly similar themselves. Williams is a better inside player than Seymour and Seymour a better outside player than Williams, and I think the same goes when comparing McCoy and Suh.

                        Yeah i can see the McCoy Suh debate there. The one that i didnt like was Bryant to Andre Johnson, i think that one is way off.

                          I like most of these comparisons.

                          • I do not see the Stephen Davis comparison for Toby Gerhart. He does remind me of Corey Dillon when I watched his college highlights when he played at Washington. Both ran upright and played in the pac 10 and had similar stats their last year in school. Gerhart broke his rushing td record of 24. Plus their running styles look very smiliar. Dillon was a 4 time pro bowler and had a really good career so hopefully Gerhart can do something similar in the pros.

                              i think the big difference is that Andre is super fast. Lots of people calling Dez an "andre johnson clone" though. Crabtree and Bryant are very very similar.

                                Yeah, I like the Dillon comparison. My favorite one is Eddie George, though.
