Alright I was in my Polysci class today and the teacher was rambling about the importance of something or other to the house of something. Meanwhile I was having a heated discussion with my friend who said that the NFL is in danger of having a lot of its big names leave the league without anyone to fill the void. I told him he was a moron.

He challenged me to come up with a "youth roster" of good players and up and comers. Only rule was that they had to be 25 or younger at the start of the season, which he only did because LaDainian and Shawn Rogers are 26. So here's my roster of young bucks who I think will make a mark in the league. Feel free to disagree or add anyone. Or just tell me to stop wasting my time and pay attention in class.

So here it is my All-Youth Team.
