    Just want to throw out a few guys that look interesting. Thanks for any input or other guys that should get a look.

    David Ball, WR New Hampshire. 6'3" 185
    - Holds career recieving TD record with 58. Most 100 yards recieving games. Looks like he can be a solid #3 or 4, maybe groomed to take Moulds's place.

    Justin Rascati, QB James Madison. 6'2" 220
    - Holds most school passing records. Very efficient passer. Mobile enough to make plays with his feet. Late round guy, could be good with good QB coaches.

    Aries Nelson, QB Mississippi Valley State. 6'3" 215
    - Extremely frustrating player. All the physical tools, just lacks proper mechanics, could benifit from a good quarterback coach. Played well in Magnolia Classic. Potential evident by Junior season.

    Travarous Bain, CB Hampton. 6'0" 190
    - One of, if not the best small school DB. Very athletic, should prove it at the combine or pro day. Definately warrents a look due to the Texans current DB situation.

    Oh, and Gary Russell, used to play RB for Minnesota, ruled academically ineligable this season. Ran for 1130 yards on just 186 carries, 18 TD's.

    Was 5'11" 215 last year

    I'm a big UNH fan, but I'm not sure of Ball's professional prospectus. He's a fantastic 1-AA player, in the pros, I really don't think he'd have it.

    I'll give you another name to watch....

    Smith, Jeff QB Georgetown College.....

    from what I have seen in the North-South game, he could be a good one with some experience and training. He is listed at 6'-6" and 246 lbs

    Demeeco is there. You autograph hunters missed a nice chance there. Vonta Leech gave a nice interveiw.

    Mark Jacob Ford Down. 6'5" 252 lbs. DE from Central Arkansas. Kuuan, Abdulaun RB Grambling St. 245 pound guy who's droped thirty pounds and is working his guts out to get draftED. Now I'll take that guy over all day every year and twice on leap year. He didn't get many snaps today might not even have to draft the guy.


    Eric Fowler WR/HB of
    Grand Valley State is going to be in someones camp. Saw the guy embarrase a set of DBs yesterday. Put four on the ground (do WR's get pancakes ?) and left several bewildered in his wake. Looks like a long striding H-back. But the guy is a route running deamon.

    I'd like to give the GVSU lineback #9 Micheal McFaddin http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/profile.php?pyid=61539) a sniff also. Allways looking for the next Brazille. The guy can drop and cover for sure.

    I think Jacoby Jones of Lane College will be alot like Colston from the Saints. Jones is definitely a good candidate to help the return game right away!
