I think 6'3" 240lb tim tebow would stop it himself. speed doesn't run into walls, it runs around walls. speed is just one aspect that they use. they have plenty of size and power. the speed sure helps them with the intangibles, such as the best special teams in ALL of college football.
I am going to take issue with Orakpo who has 9 sacks 43 total tackles vs Johnson who has 5 sacks 39 total tackles. Orkapo has 11 QB hurries and 3 forced fumbles while Johnson has 0 QB hurries and 1 forced fumble. So in what way is Orakpo not the best, in that he has the better stats.

tim tebow had incredible stats last year. was he the best QB? no. he's barely a QB. I am basing it on mock draft position. stats really mean nothing. the experts put him as the best. do you think that colt mccoy would be the first QB taken if he was to come out? he has great stats so why wouldn't he be. stafford would still be the first QB taken.

I have saw 1 mock and it was from September 17th so very old, they had Johnson 1 -2 spots ahead of Orakpo. So if they are so close then the player who has the better stats would probably be taken higher

I am sure I could see johnson play every week if I wanted to. that's what sucks about living in ACC country. the ACC blows.

Aint that the truth, I watched ECU beat Va Tech. I remember when the ACC got Miami and FSU and everyone was saying this is going to be one of the best conferences in football. Wow were they wrong.

I honestly have no idea why they are bad. FSU and miami pick from some of the best talent in the country. tech and UVA have the va beach/norfolk/hampton roads and the DC area to pick from. all the schools in NC have plenty of metro areas to pick from. academically, the schools are great and most of them are located in great college towns. makes no sense.
