Exclamation Watch Virginia v. Fresno State Today

This game has some intriguing prospects. Fresno State LT Logan Mankins all-american 6-4 320
Fresno State DE Claude Sanders 6-3 240
Fresno State DE Brian Morris 6-2 250
Virginia LB ahmad brooks 6-4 249 (award watch list),*soph, but draft elgible,
Virginia Elton Brown gaurd 6-5 338 (award watch list),
Virginia OT D'Brickashaw Ferguson 6-5 295 *junior possibly coming out,
Virginia RB alvin pearman 5'9 205
Virginia C Zac Yarborough 6-4 276 (award watch list)
Virginia DE Chris Canty 6-7 290 (all-american candidate)
This game features lots of good draft elgible players who could fill some of our most glaring holes on D and on the o-line. With all of Virginia's prospects they should win, but don't count out the Dogs. Go Dogs
The game is on @ 2eastern, 11 pacific on ESPN

this from gbnreport.com 12/27

"Cav junior OT says no to draft; others waffling... Virginia junior OT D'Brickshaw Ferguson, one of college football's rising stars on the offensive line, is being quoted as saying that he will definitely be back at school next fall. The 6-5, 295-pound Ferguson is also a very good student and plans to graduate; indeed, Ferguson reportedly has some thoughts about ultimately attending law school some time down the road. It appears that junior OLB Daryl Blackstock will also be staying in school. Blackstock, a big-play outside backer, changed his number for today's MPC Computer Bowl in Boise against Fresno State (see above) from #56 to #1 and says that he did not plan on wearing the new number for only one game. Meanwhile, the father of sophomore MLB Ahmad Brooks is being quoted as saying his son will likely return to school, however, "anything could change. On the other hand, TE Heath Miller, who is expected to be the first TE off the board if he enters the draft, hasn't stated publicly whether he'll be staying the scholl or entering the draft; Miller, though, is widely believed to be strongly leaning toward turning pro"

If TE Heath Miller comes out we gotta look at this guy he's a stud and our D @ Fresno State is no slouch also the gaurd Elton Brown is pretty darn good. LT Logan Mankins is handling their great outside rushers very well.

Heath Miller was pretty good today. He has really good hands, doesnt seem real athletic though. Pretty good blocker too.

Ahmad Brooks was terrible. He couldn't get off a block to save his life. Saw him miss some tackles and kinda loaf around out there. Very unimpressed.

Congrats to Fresno State.

Thanks Wags we played our a@@ off. What a great game. What did you think of our LT Mankings he played well against good comp this year and played great against the best comp he has ever faced. Brooks was bad he made one good play on our last drive that we scored on that was it. Elton Brown looked pretty good as well. Your right Miller didn't seem real fast and looked like he never got real low when blocking I would't pick him in the 1rst round, would in the 2nd maybe and definatelt the 3rd

Great coaching both sides, really impressed with Fresno St. & that gives me alot more confidence about Carr, looks like he came from a great system, no wonder the Texans were impressed.

Brooks looked good but would greatly benifit from another year in College, since Virginia utilizes the 3-4 it would behoove the Texans to revisit him next year along with the other underclassman.

I expect Heath Miller to be a perfect fit for Pittsburgh late 1st round, the offensive line is set which will allow him to catch more Roethlisberger underneath outlets.

Mankings I thought was very impressive LT, I would not be upset at all if the Texans took him in the 3rd round (if he lasts), again a team like Carolina or Cleveland may jump all over him.

I also liked the RB Mathis from Fresno St. and the WR Fernandez.

Again great game, congratulations
