    He's not worth watching to see a future pro bowler, much less a future NFL undrafted free agent, but this kid proves to me that if you want something bad enough, you can always get it.

    One of the more interesting stories of this April's running back-rich NFL draft is that of Washington State's Chris Bruhn, who will showcase his skills at Saturday's Hula Bowl. Bruhn played two seasons fighting through a learning disability that made it tough for him to retain plays. Bruhn clenched his left or right fist coming out of the huddle to help him remember the direction of the play. He's also taking special-education classes to improve his retention.

    The Hula Bowl will be on Saturday on ESPN

    i dont know, but there isn't going to be the same sympathy in the NFL as there is in college ball and people will pick up on his cues, and destroy him.

    The NFL is an intense mental game. It is mind over matter. DRob proves that theory.

    It is the same idea for a RB. If this person is able to overcome the rentention issue. He could be better than you think, because so much of his play will be instinct. Unlike other RB's who try to read the defense too much and get caught.

    Well one thing about it though; this pick, it would give Peek a study budy. They could practice wrought memory together. Perhaps given enough time a few brain cells will awaken. Would be nice to see Peek on the feild for all three downs. Mind does matter. But you never know maybe he could make it as a special teams guy. Who you gonna cut though ? The cuts in september are going to start hurting from now on. You look at the bubble guys from last year and that's who your advocating your gonna cut this September.
    I liked the kid that broke the 59 yard run in the Hula Bowl. Also the Fla. St 260 DE Moore I think they both looked like day two prospects to me.
