You have a flashy QB coming from a Texas University that has a ton of fans within the Texans fanbase (many will be clamoring for the Texans to draft him). BTW, are there any big mattress store owner/Aggie fans in Houston? If so, expect to see ads.
You have a DE that is a physical freak but his work ethic being questioned.
This draft however appears to me to be much deeper at QB. Also you don't have an over hyped "Reggie Bush" type player in the mix.
I don't think A&M fans are going to go quite as overboard on JFF as UT fans did with VY. Hell it seems like the A&M fans who get real frothy at the mouth when discussing football don't think very highly of JFF's off the field antics, warranted or not.
I think the big difference here is instead of a heisman winning RB, you've got a QB from a small school that has been pegged as "probably" the best QB in the class hanging around.
