All-Time Rivals100: Nos. 11-20

VOTE: Who was the best player ever ranked 11-20 in the Rivals100?
Rivals.com's analysts recently got together and picked an all-time Rivals100 consisting of what we thought was the best player ever ranked at each spot in the ranking.
We took into consideration players that have at least one year out of high school, so each spot on the all-time list will be one of the seven players ever ranked at that position from 2002 to 2008. For example, the group in the running for No. 1 consists of Vince Young (No. 1 overall in 2002), Ernie Sims (2003), Adrian Peterson (2004), Derrick Williams (2005), Percy Harvin (2006), Jimmy Clausen (2007) and Terrelle Pryor (2008).
Today we take a look at the best from Nos. 11 to 20. The all-time top 10 will be released on Monday.
