"All Future" Memphis Tiger? 

Few writers know the game of football better than Sports Illustrated's Peter King. And King has taken it upon himself to name his own all-time team, as well as a collection of players that will be making headlines in 2012. A former Memphis Tiger happens to be on King's All-Future team.

King writes: "The rules for a team of tomorrow are so vague. Should you pick the greatest high school senior in the land? The greatest college sophomore? I refuse to put Matt Simms on the team, even though -- who knows? -- Phil's youngest son might turn out to be a heck of an NFL player when his career at Louisville (where he's enrolling this year) ends. I ended up deciding to pick a player or two from college football, but only the ones who look like true can't-missers."

Tiger fans won't kick about one of King's picks. Check out King's article.
