Mark Herzlich-LB- Player Jan. 28 - 9:53 am et www.rotoworld.com/nfl Boston College LB Mark Herzlich had a titanium rod placed in his left leg after battling Ewing's Sarcoma in 2009. This may help explain Herzlich's reduced cover skills after overcoming cancer. He deserves all the credit in the world for beating the disease, of course, and doing so could cause some teams to "fall in love" with Herzlich as the draft approaches. We aren't convinced he'll slip past the third round.

Now, he's trying to add another improbable chapter to the tale — making it in the National Football League. "It's really surreal, to be honest, to be here with all these great players," Herzlich said. "You always dream about coming to the Senior Bowl and going to the NFL. And to have that taken away from you and then get it back, you cherish it even that much more."
