    I never got a chance to see the guy play. Anyone who did... Do you think he'll be a good pass rusher in the Pros?

    I'm a Notre Dame fan and even I'm not impressed with him. He fights hard, but he's not Dwight Freeney.

    I love this guy. I'm also a Notre Dame fan and he is better player than the scrub down their in Georgia name Pollack. I put him in the mold of Bertrand Berry but more upside.

    He looked really good against the Vols (my fav ncaa team), but the Vols' o-line was beat up. Really not enough to go by. I think he hold's the ND sack record.

    This guy will be a stud in the NFL...can play SAM in the 3-4 or put on enough pounds to play end in the 4-3.

    As a Notre Dame fan I've seen him play a lot. I went to two games this year,so I've seen him play in person as well. I was at the Purdue game and I made the trip to Tennessee to see him break ND's sack record. He's talented. I wish he'd stay another year,but you can't look at this guy lightly since he is ND's career leader in sacks. Especially when you go through the list of who's played at ND ahead of him. I know sacks haven't had their own category for a long time,but he is a stud. It's not like he's done this against week opponents.

    Why would you compare him to Freeney. If you're gonna hold prospects up to those standards then you probably wont like anyone.

    With the #20 pick I wouldnt mind Tags calling out Tucks name. D needs people who can consistently get to the QB. Tuck being ND all time sack leader (after his Junior year) looks like he has that skill.

    Because, Genius, Freeney was drafted with the 11th pick, we hold the 11th pick. If we're gonna get a DE at the 11th pick, I'd like him to be as good as Dwight Freeney.

    Now, at #20, that's a different story. ALthough I think there would be better value at CB at that spot (there's a lot of good CBs this year, too bad they aren't allowed to cover in the NFL anymore).

    People doubted Julius and look at what he did. So let's see what happens when they doubt Justin as well. Go get em Tuck!!! I was pumped after the Cowboys drafted JJ seeing how I'm a huge ND fan,so getting Tuck would be awesome as well. Just have to wait and see what happens. I would have liked him to stay at ND because there are a good bit of DE's that may go before him.

    i'd rather grab DE Howard from the Saints in FA.

    Tuck doesn't strike me as a first round pick, he also has had tendinitis in his knee which sat him out of the oregon st game...not good

    Good point about his health. Maybe thats why he's afraid to come back to ND. I hope he does well wherever he goes.
