    Deon Butler is a WR and Sargent is a DB, unless they position changed at the combine.

    “According to Gil Brandt of NFL.com, speedy CORNERBACK Deon Butler registered a 4.23 in the short shuttle.”
    He’s a Wide Reciever

    Deon Butler was a WR at Penn St. Is he switching to CB for the pro’s?

    Deon Butler is a WR and Lydell Sargeant is a Corner

    Butler is a WR and Sargeant is a DB. Although Butler did start his career at PSU at a walk-on DB.

    Deon Butler is a receiver, Florio.

    “speedy cornerback Deon Butler registered a 4.23″
    “Wide receiver Lydell Sargeant”
    Okay, I know what the NFL.com link says…but Deon Butler owns every major career RECEIVING record at PSU. I was at the game where he broke the career catches mark. He is clearly a Wide Receiver.
    Lydell Sargeant, on the other hand has ZERO career receptions (unless you are counting his 7 picks). He’s a CB.

    Sargeant is a cornerback. Butler is a wide receiver.

  12. lolODELLTHURMANlol says: Mar 22, 2009 12:51 PM

    Lydell Sargeant is a Cornerback.

  13. KGleits says: Mar 22, 2009 12:53 PM

    Deon Butler is a receiver and Lydell is a cornerback…nice.

  14. raheem24 says: Mar 22, 2009 12:59 PM

    Lydell is a DB, and Deon is a WR, unless they has a position change at the combine.

    The bears need butler. That guy has amazing hands. Can catch anything. Remember, Morelli was his qb for a while ha

    Butler does not hold every major receiving record at Penn State.
    He holds the record for most career catches, single-game receiving yardage, single-game catches by a sophomore, catches in a season by a freshman and yardage in a season by a freshman. He also shares a few records broken down by class.
    Most receiving records are held by Bobby Engram and O.J. McDuffie.

    @melock
    Yea, you’re right. But for his career he’s either at the top or in the top 3. Also, Sargeant had two receptions for 27 yards when he was a freshman in 05.

    wow can you people read? you are posting the same things over and over.

    When we left a comment, the other comments weren’t up yet.
    And Florio/Wilson, in case you haven’t heard (cause you haven’t updated the story), Seargent is a DB and Butler is a WR.

    I like Butler as a player the most coming out of Penn State, except for maybe AQ Shipley. He might have short arms but he’s an intelligent hard worker who will make some team happy to pick him in mid to later rounds.
    I think Maybin is juicing to get up to weight and all of his measurables are a hoax. It pains me to say it since I just graduated from there in May of ’08 and I liked his motor on the field.

    AQ Shipley with the short arms if that was confusing.
