c - Mark Thompson looking good for Mid Tenn
Brohm looking good
They have a 6-6 WR Urutia that had a few nice posession catches last drive
Urrutia is a top receiver in all of NCAA, along with Harry Douglas.
I actually really like Urrutia. Runs hard after the catch and is big.

Draft Scout Player News
09/06/07 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Mario Urrutia - The 6-foot-6 junior burned Middle Tennessee State last year for 134 yards and two touchdowns. He had a lackluster first week, grabbing only two catches against Murray State, and might be ready to respond.
09/06/07 - Junior WR Mario Urrutia scored on a 71-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter against MTSU. It's the third touchdown reception of 70 or more yards in his career. Urrutia (7 catches, 142 yards) produced his eighth 100-yard receiving game of his career and matched his career high in receptions and TDs (2). Urrutia and senior WR Harry Douglas (8 catches, 100 yards) both extended their consecutive reception streaks to 17 games. TE Gary Barnidge recorded a career high 126 yards on four receptions and matched his career best with two TDs.
09/04/07 - STILL NEEDS WORK: WR Mario Urrutia was left out of the offensive explosion for the most part. He had only two catches for 55 yards and dropped an easy screen pass.
08/30/07 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Mario Urrutia is promising big things this season. The 6-6 junior hauled in 973 yards and six touchdowns receiving a year ago, but he revealed this month that he played the final nine games of 2006 with a stress fracture in his right foot and painful shin splints. He is injury-free to start this season.
12/13/06 - University of Louisville wide receiver Mario Urrutia said he is leaning toward returning to school next year rather than entering the National Football League draft. Urrutia is eligible for the draft as a redshirt sophomore. He has caught 53 passes this season for 929 yards and six touchdowns. “I think I’ve got a lot more to work on,” he said after Wednesday’s practice. “So more than likely, I’ll be coming back.” Yahoo! Sports reported earlier this month that Urrutia was one of several underclassmen who have requested evaluations from the NFL draft advisory board. The NFL has not made that list public. Urrutia said he hasn’t taken that step yet. “I was thinking about it, but I’m not sure right now,” he said. - Brian Bennett, The Courier-Journal
