Top Collection of Skill Players, Same Year, Same Team

Al Messerschmidt

So @smartfootball mentioned that Alabama's top five skill position players may be the best combined he's ever seen.

Which got me thinking: What's the best collection of five skill players the B1G has seen in the last ten years?

Here are the nominees from your esteemed staff. (Remember: this is some combination of QB/RB/WR/TE, your team gets five players, and the cutoff is 2004).
