    Default Best Wrestlers of the 2000s

    To carry on Jensen's topic from the other board.

    My picks:

    1. Cael Sanderson (1,1,1,1)
    2. Stephen Abas (1,1,1,4)
    3. Ben Askren (1,1,2,2)
    4. Greg Jones (1,1,1)
    5. Steve Mocco (2,1,1,2)
    6. Jake Rosholt (1,1,3,1)
    7. TJ Williams (1,3,1)
    8. Cole Konrad (1,1,2,4)
    9. Johnny Thompson (3,1,1,2)
    10. Damion Hahn (1,1,5,5)

    Reasoning: 3 x winners and 4 time finalists are in, and make up the first six placers. Close to finishing, and dominance during career make up the rest. No one wanted to wrestle Konrad the last two years. (Almost) no one could beat Williams, who lost only one match in his Div I career if I'm not mistaken. A number of wrestlers could have been #10 but I'll go with Hahn.

    I had been meaning to say, I like the pick of TJ, he had kind of slipped my mind when I'd done my picks earlier. I'd probably bump Teyon off the list in exchange for TJ.

    Yeah, I was looking at the NCAA lists, saw TJ in 2000, and thought: how could we all forget him? Eric Guerrero would have been an easy top-10'r but his senior year was 1999.

    Where will Nickerson rank when he is done? Hmmm.......

    He's gotta pick up a few titles before people start to talk about putting him on the list, BIG guy.

    Certainly Ryan Bertin deserves to be mentioned 6-1-3-1 in an absolutely loaded 157 weight. Especially the last three years.

    The knock against him being that he never won a single conference title. 2-3-2-2 for his four years.
