When USC had a quarterback (Matt Leinart at No. 10) and running back ( Reggie Bush at No. 2) selected in the top 10, it marked the first time since 1995 when Penn State had Kerry Collins and Ki-Jana Carter picked in the top 10 that a QB and RB from one school were top-10 picks.

collings & carter ... both are locks to get into canton. :fib

Of the last 20 Super Bowl winners, only three have had a running back picked in the first half of Round 1. Jamal Lewis was taken fifth overall by Baltimore in the 2000 draft and played in Super Bowl XXXV as a rookie. Marshall Faulk played in Super Bowl XXXIV as a member of the Rams, but he was picked by the Colts with the second overall pick in 1994. And Jerome Bettis was selected 10th overall by the Los Angeles Rams in 1993 before winning the Super Bowl this past January with the Steelers.

an undrafted free agent was the starter, bettis (one of my all time favorites) was a backup.

figured this might ruffle some feathers & elicit some fun comparisons.

Can anyone see a common factor in those Super Bowl teams? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Offensive line. Plain simple facts.
