Frank gore just entered the draft and i was thinking that he would be a great pick for us in the 4th or 5th and would be the brusier the dom wants.

(sorry about no like is on KFFL)

Not sure where you're getting the "round" information, but Merriman received a 1st or 2nd round recommendation from the NFL's underclassman evaluation committee. And they're usually pretty conservative with those recommendations.

The brusier that Dom wants?

Think big. Like 6'3", around 250 big. Like Eric Shelton of Louisville

Or Kay Jay on the 2nd day--a classic Casserly move to get a RB low looking for a diamond in the rough.

My only concerns with Kay Jay are his age (played minor league baseball for 4 years), his durability, and his blocking/recieving skills. The blocking and recieving isn't a huge deal since DD is an excellent reciever, and if we were to draft Kay Jay he'd likely be in on short yardage scenarios where everyone knows we'll be running for the first down or TD. Just about every RB has to work on picking up the blitz when they come to the NFL, and some pick it up quicker than others. As far as his age it is only a concern because of the relatively short careers that most RBs have. Once a RB hits 30 he is considered over the hill, and essientially done. Curtis Martin is the oldest player to lead the league in rushing, and he's 31.

I wasn't saying Brown isn't the better prospect, more of a Kay Jay looks like a possibility for a bruiser back as well and it wouldn't be surprising if they filled other spots above and then went for him in the 4th.

Kay Jay is definatly not a solution for our running game. If we draft an RB high, its going to be someone who we think could replace DD as the franchise back. Kay Jay is just too old.

Merriman could be a good choice for us if we trade down in the 1st.

I'd agree with that. RB, although a concern, isn't our most pressing need. I, too, would expect another 2nd day RB pick, but I'd prefer it not to be Kay Jay.

Gore is pretty strong but he is NOT a bruiser. in fact I think of him as a more injury prone version of Hollings. Shelton, Jacobs and Harris or the only true bruisers in this draft.

Default Kiwanuka will not enter draft

Boston College: Defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka said Friday that he will stay at the school for his final year of eligibility as the Eagles move into the Atlantic Coast Conference next season.

Kiwanuka, the Big East defensive player of the year, spent a few days discussing his options with his family and Don Horton, the assistant coach who originally recruited him, before coming to a decision.

"I felt like there's still some areas of my game that I could improve on and be 100 percent when I make the leap," Kiwanuka said in a conference call. "I was still hearing conflicting views. I was still hearing that I could still be drafted in the first round. It was just my college career and just not being satisfied with what I've done so far."

Kiwanuka, who led BC with 11 sacks and 24 tackles for losses this past season, said a big part of his decision was the chance to play in the ACC next year.

"I've enjoyed my time at Boston College," Kiwanuka said. "A part of it is college life, playing college football and now we get to go to the ACC, which I think, in my opinion, is the best conference in the country. Being in that spotlight before I take it to the NFL is important."

I think this is a good decision for him, barring injury if he can add on another 15 lbs or so and refine his game a little more he could be a top 5 pick next draft.

if gore wants to do anything is this league he has to get back down to his old playing weight. he put on a lot of lbs since his second knee and if he could lose 10 or 15 he might be able to return to his old form of 9.1 yards a carry. gore isn't the brusier that dom is looking for. is game is a cut back speed game.

ESPN has a running list up.

Wolf's post from draftshowcase...

Quote:
*Texas has already had Jonathan Scott stay, but sources close to Texas say they expect to lose at least one junior by the time this is all done. DT Rodrique Wright has made it pretty clear he's returning, so it looks as though the early defector could FS/CB Michael Huff.
Huff has announced he's staying. Texas will keep their 3 junior prospects.

*Two more names in the draft pool as Tennessee FS/CB Jason Allen has declared. I felt Allen would be at top 15 type guy in next year's draft, but he'll probably still have a shot at late 1st this year, although he'll probably end up as more of a 2nd Rounder. Missouri's RB Damien Nash, who left school about a month back has declared for the draft rather than transferring. He's a speedy back, but somewhat raw and will likely go in the 5-6 range.

ernest shazor, who was suppose to make a decision on jan 15, has been said that he might leave. i think Edwards leaked some info about the situation.

Does anyone remember or know the name of the defensive tacke from Utah? The guy was just dominating all game long against Pittsburgh. I don't know if he's sophomore or junior, but that guy was just awesome. He's from Hawaii I think..

What do guys think about Vernand Morency? He was one of the best in the nation and maybe we can pick him up in the 3rd round if he's available. Also, Fabian Washington is a very good d-back.
