I love this idea.
QB: Adrian Rupp - Kamau is definitely more talented but only had one year with the team. Rupp was the QB for the two best Indiana seasons and had a spectacular senior season.
RB: Timothy Cano - All time leader in rushing yards. Honorable mentions to Michael Acevedo and Kamar Blackmon. Blackmon will almost surely take this stop by the end of the season and no chance he doesn't have it by the end of next season. Will be a 4 year starter and will probably take over Cano's record half way through this year.
FB: Julian Early - Made it to the NFL. Not much to say other than that, no other Indiana FB has done that.
WR: Douglas Chadwick - Crazy good sophomore year where he made all Big 10 with over 1200 yards. Fell off in future years almost certainly due to incredibly bad QBs.
WR: Graham James - Two really good years as WR1. A solid player who made it to the NFL and not much more.
WR: Patrick Rollins - Was WR1 for a few years which led to some good production. No Freddie Jackson, he had one year where he didn't do much. It was probably due to the QB being young and not being able to throw deep but that's all we have to go off of.
TE: Miguel Elias - Really the only decent TE Indiana has ever had. Had three years of good production.
OT: Andrew Self - Current senior and the only IU OT to have pro potential ever, except for Mike Weir's brother, Quinn, who is currently redshirting.
OG: Mike Weir - One of five players to make the all Big 10 team, his younger brother is the future IU left tackle. Best OL player for sure.
C: Finn Pratt - 4 year starter despite being a 3.5/3.5. Will lose this spot to Ayden Washburn eventually, a current sophomore who will also be a 4 year starter and also has pro potential.
OG: Hunter Parrish - Three year starter, graduated last year and now in the pros. Tobias Watkins as an honorable mention, also a 4/4 and was a two year starter.
OT: Adolfo Fine - 4 year starter despite being a 3.5/3.5, a trend for the Indiana offensive line.
DE: Vondrae Ledbetter - He's only a redshirt sophomore, which says more about the team's DE history than Ledbetter, but he had a really good freshman year, the best of any IU DE ever.
DT: Howard Foster - Not much competition here, not surprsing for IU. Was never great but but had solid stats for a couple of years. Anquan Everett, who just joined the team as a JUCO, is probably the most talented DT the team has ever had and I expect him to have this spot by the end of 2024.
DE: Ricardo Fernandez - Not a very good player, started a few meh seasons. A 3.5/3.5.
OLB: David Hernandez - A 3.5/3.5 but one of the 5 all Big 10 players for the school. Had a crazy senior season. Probably the all time leading tackler in Indiana history, I didn't do the math for everyone.
ILB: Daniel Felder - A 3/3 but was constantly made game reports, probably due to no other good defensive players.
ILB: Jaden Durant - Current senior, solid player who will be the first Indiana ILB to go pro. Has never put up a ton of stats but always solid.
OLB: Felix Hinojosa - Had three good years as a starter and left early for the pros despite not having a chance at ever playing.
CB: Orlando Archuleta - Not many corners in the history of Indiana. This guy graduated last year with two good statistical seasons under his belt. 4 INTs his senior season.
CB: Walter Askew - Had never head of this guy before I went through everyone, but he had a few good years of stats so in he goes.
FS: Elijah Faulk - Had a few years with a lot of tackles and a few INTs.
SS: Malachi Hawkins - Three year starter, current senior. No idea who else to put here. Has never put up too many stats but started this season off with an interception.
K: Zack Yarbrough - A 3/3, there's been a few 3.5/3.5 kickers at Indiana but Yarbrough is the only IU kicker to ever make a kick over 50 yards, so he gets the nod.
P: PK Crowe - No contest
