I actually think Illinois has several players on offense who will be in the league. We have 2-3 lineman who will be there (O'Donnell, Fulton for sure), Rejus Benn will be there, Jeff Cumberland will be there (huge WR, 6'5 4.4 40). Don't sell Illinois short guys, Ron Zook is building a powerhouse football program in Champaign, IL. Mendenhall is unreal though. He is the total package and only going to get better IMO.
