    If you have the NFL Network and Video on Demand with your cable or sattelite company, Comcast Cable for sure, then you can access about 50+ videos of the players entered in the draft. These are videos put together by NFL Network and are very non-biased and good to watch. Blackstock from UVA and Spears from LSU are the two that stood out to me the most. Living in VA and being a NC STATE fan I get to see alot of Blackstock on the field. He will be a very good LB in the NFL. He's one of those guys you can get to run all the shuttle drills and 40's you want, but you'll never get a true indication of his game speed. He looks like a Taylor/McGinnest type LB that bill loves and is only a JR. Spears on the other hand is a pure beast. Has been a TE most of his football days and can dominate the Line of Scrimmage as well as has very quick feet and hands. I hope we get both of these guys. Blackstock looks to be a 2-3 round pick by most peoples mocks, but there always a couple players that slide and rise on draft day. Check out those videos if you get a chance.

    [font=Arial, Helvetica]n: 27 sacks in 3 years at the college level, 10 as a freshman and never played LB until his college days
    LB
    [/font]


    WORTH NOTING: Dynamic pass rusher who excelled in Virginia's 3-4 defensive scheme as an outside linebacker and rusher off the edge ... very fast for a player his size ... gives opposing linemen fits with his speed off the edge ... played with his hand on the ground until he came to Virginia in 2002 ... prior to his freshman season at UVa in 2002 he had always been a rush end, but he quickly made the adjustment to outside linebacker ... was assigned #56 as a freshman by head coach Al Groh, who coached Lawrence Taylor at North Carolina and in the NFL with the New York Giants ... Groh says linebackers don't wear #11, Blackstock's old number ... changed his number to 1 for his final collegiate game against Fresno State in the 2004 MPC Computers Bowl ... finished his collegiate career second in school history with 27 quarterback sacks and third with 45 tackles for loss ... finished second in ACC history in career sacks by a linebacker, half a sack behind former Georgia Tech star Marco Coleman who had 27.5 sacks from 1989-91 ... nearly 20 percent of his career tackles have occurred behind the line (.190) ...started the final 38 games of his career, the longest streak by a UVa linebacker since Byron Thweatt (47 straight) who played from 1997-2000 ... was named National Defensive Freshman of the Year in 2002 after leading all freshmen in sacks (10) and tackles for loss (14) ... his 10 sacks are an ACC record for a freshman ... his 107 tackles in 2002 were second-most by a rookie in school history ... one of the few players to leave school early for the NFL.
