    this is very positive news for NFL teams & ensures a really good player will still be available when the Texans pick. sorry to Buckeye fans, Yankee_In_Texas but y'all better win it this year :)

    After Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel encouraged any Buckeyes’ underclassman who would be eligible for the NFL draft to apply to the NFL's College Advisory Committee for an evaluation of his pro prospects, as many as 13 players took him at his word. Of course, not all 13 are ultimately going to officially apply to the league to be included in the 2008 draft; indeed, several applied to the NFL for feedback from the league’s special draft advisory committee simply or information purposes. The Buckeyes, though, could have a major impact at the 2008 draft as several juniors including CB Malcolm Jenkins, LB James Laurinaitis, DE Vernon Gholston and OT Alex Boone all have first-round potential. Underclassmen have until January 15th to apply for early entry to the 2008 draft.
