Default Rashard Mendenhall to go pro

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=3182506

Illinois junior running back Rashard Mendenhall will enter the NFL draft, a source close to him said Saturday.

Mendenhall, the Big Ten Player of the Year, made his final case as a pro prospect in the Rose Bowl, where he gained 155 yards rushing and added 59 receiving yards in the Fighting Illini's loss to Southern California.

In 2007, Mendenhall rushed 262 times for 1,681 yards -- an average of 6.4 yards per attempt -- and 17 touchdowns.

Mendenhall's college coach, Ron Zook, told the Chicago Tribune that he expected he would turn pro.

"We all know he's a first-round talent," Zook said, according to the newspaper.

The Tribune also reported that his mother, Sibyl, said a news conference was planned for Thursday at Niles West High School, his alma mater.

if he's there at #18, let's do it. if not him, felix jones.

I think Mendenhall will be gone before our pick.

Talib (the CB) looks like a baller. But he might be gone, too.

I hate the No. 18 spot for us. That's muddy water, IMO, because I think there's just not much difference between the 2nd round and the late 1st round. We know we have a fairly narrow focus (RB/OL/DB) and so I think the better players at those positions will be gone when we are on the clock.

Mendenhall looks really, really good. He runs right up the middle, but can hit the edge and explode quickly, too. Seems to be legit. I like him better than J Stew.
