    Zachary Maynard, hands down.

    He beat out four all world, Guru trained studs.

    I can't believe there is even a question that it's someone other than Aaron Rodgers.

    In order, Rodgers, Jackson, Lynch, and Follett.

    During the Marshawn Lynch era, we went 28-9 (76% winning percentage).

    We lost as many games with 3 years of Lynch as we did this past season -- and that's despite having 4 different starting QBs.

    Maybe, possibly, Lynch was the lynchpin of the Tedford era.

    Keenan will become the first Cal player drafted to not experience a Big Game victory since Scott Fujita.

    Yup....AR gets all the accolades but why I said Alex Mack is that he was a 3 time First Team All Pac 10 (2006-2008) and won the Morris Trophy (best offensive and defensive lineman) in both 2007 and 2008, something not done since Lincoln Kennedy did it for UDub in 91-92. He simply was more dominant at his position IMO then anyone else at their respective positions. When defensive lineman were polled on who was the most dominant offensive lineman, he won hands down in multiple years.

    Best players: Jahvid, Marshawn & Aaron

    Best games: Tennessee at home, aTm in the Holiday Bowl and the victory against $C.

    Best Plays: Lynch's TD run in the Big Game when he was a Freshman, Follett's hit on Ainge in the Tennessee game, Jahvid's TD run at fucla and DJax punt return against Tenn(although there are plenty of these to chose from)!
    Wasn't here for AR so would probably go with Alex Mack and maybe Marcus Ezeff forced fumble against Oregon that saved / won that game.

    My vote as well

    AR may be the best player in the NFL right now, but he didn't have the dominating career that Mack had in college.

    Gratest block I have ever seen in person

    Still recall both players lying on the ground in agony for a long time.

    MVP- Aaron Rodgers

    Offense- Marshawn Lynch

    Defense-Desmond Bishop

    Special teams- Desean Jackson

    Honorable mentions- Zack Follett, Alex Mack, Jahvid Best, Hughs, JJ Arrington, Decoud, Calvin Booth

    In terms of raw talent, DeSean Jackson was the most gifted player in the history of our program. Perhaps the greatest punt returner in the history of the NCAA.
