    You ask most Nebraska fans, and the vast majority of them will tell you Fonzie was MUCH better than Prince was last year. I even said months ago that Alfonzo was really the star of the secondary last season at Nebraska.

    But he won't go that high in the draft though because of his height. He's only about 5'10.

    So you are right in the fact of who will be looked at more favorably by NFL scouts. But just by judging by what they do on the field, I'll take Dennard every single time. That kid is a freakin' warrior. He wants to play press coverage every down, and even with his size he's very, very good in press. Also not afraid at all in the run game.

    If we are already starting 'pet cats' for next year, then I call dibs on Alfonzo.
