As we roll along on our list of top-10 MVB's (most valuable Bears), you may have noticed that talent isn't always going to help a player's ranking. As I've said before, this list is about the irreplaceable players at critical positions for the Bears.
Also, let me reiterate that I believe everyone on the team plays an important part, and is valuable in what they contribute to the team - in many cases, you're only as good as your depth. With that said, I'll go ahead and catch those up who have missed the last five on the list.
At No. 10, Bryan Anger and his ability to change field position started the list. Cal's passing game was a problem last year, so the speed receiver needs to come up big in 2009 - which is why I selected Marvin Jones, (or whoever wins the job), at No. 9.
With special teams and offense represented early, No. 8 put the defense on the board with Tyson Alualu. With all three teams represented, I went back to special teams. The placekicker, (Giorgio Tavecchio or David Seawright), came in at No. 7 - because you need to score points every chance you get.
