    No. 1 QB Vince Young (Texas) Vitals: Ht: 6-4 Wt: 230 40: 4.4

    Pos: Athletic quarterback with immense physical ability. Possesses a live arm, zips the ball into targets or easily gets passes downfield. Quick release and immediately gets the ball out of his hand. Devastating ball carrier who displays outstanding vision and the ability to create.

    Neg: Must improve his overall accuracy and pass placement.

    No. 2 RB Reggie Bush (USC) Vitals: Ht: 5-11.5 Wt: 200 40: 4.45

    Pos: Explosive back and game impacting skill player dangerous whenever handling the ball. Patient runner who waits for blocks to develop then displays outstanding footwork everywhere on the field.

    Neg: Not a heavy duty ball carrier who takes a consistent pounding on the inside.

    [IMG]

    No. 3 QB Matt Leinart (USC) Vitals: Ht: 6-4 Wt: 224 40: 4.91

    Pos: Productive left handed passer with outstanding field awareness. Patient in the pocket, buys time for receivers and quickly finds the open wide out. Does a terrific job selling ball fakes, looks off opposing safeties and consistently goes to secondary targets.

    Neg: Immobile and cannot escape the rush. Does not drive the ball downfield.

    [IMG]

    No. 4 OT D'Brickashaw Ferguson (Virginia) Vitals: Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 290 40: 5.31

    Pos: Athletic blocker who stands out in pass protection. Fluid moving about the field, plays with forward lean and easily anchors at the point of attack. Slides his feet in space, adjusts to oncoming defenders and displays great punch with his hands.

    Neg: Not overly instinctive. Lunges into blocks which adversely effects his balance.

    [IMG]

    No. 5 OLB A.J. Hawk (Ohio State) Vitals: Ht: 6-1 Wt: 243 40: 4.51

    Pos: Explosive linebacker who plays with the a great degree of suddenness. Aggressive, always working to get involved in the action and goes for the knockout blow. Creates havoc firing up the field on the blitz.

    Neg: Lacks great body control and does not immediately alter his angle of attack. Marginal height, which may pose a problem at the next level.

    [IMG]
    No. 6 DE Mario Williams (N.C. State) Vitals: Ht: 6-6 Wt: 285 40: 4.75

    Pos: Tremendous athlete who displays continued progress on the football field. Quick off the snap, moves well laterally and collapses from the outside to make plays.

    Neg: Not the most instinctive. Does not consistently use his size as an advantage. Must improve his playing balance.

    [IMG]

    No. 7 DB Jimmy Williams (Virginia Tech) Vitals: Ht: 6-2 Wt: 209 40: 4.47

    Pos: Big, physical defensive back who can be lined up at cornerback or safety. Strong, jams receivers at the line and slows their release from the snap of the ball.

    Neg: Prefers to side shuffle in reverse. Does not quickly plant or break to the throw and has difficulty staying with receivers out of routes.

    [IMG]

    No. 8 WR Santonio Holmes (Ohio State) Vitals: Ht: 5-10.5 Wt: 185 40: 4.52

    Pos: Consistent wide receiver with a well-rounded game. Fluid releasing off the line, quick to top speed and displays sharpness running routes. Averaged 18 yards/catch last year with the Buckeyes.

    Neg: Doesn't have great size and is not what you'd typically expect in terms of speed from one of the top two or three wide receivers available this year.

    I would pay much attention to what ole Roy has to say on his site.

    He gives fans more of what they want to hear, rather than the truth. Take last season for instance. If our fans couped up a rumor, normally his site ran something about that player.

    He'll do anything for a dollar, basically. His opinions are really no better than anyone else.

    If what woodysgirl posted is right then he sure went out on a limb!

    How much did he charge for that?

    WOW.

    All he did was post the top 8 prospects on anyone's board.

    And being that we don't pick until 18, none of those guys are on our radar anyway.

    What a joke.

    Not for sure, but I'm thinking it's going to be in a series. Don't know why he'd do that, but that's just my guess.
