    Im doing this on another site, figured I might as well move it over here. If possible, can I get it stickied to as it can be put to good use? Anyways, post any links to players returning or declaring and we'll get the list going (the links are to keep everything posted proven so Im not basing anything on wild rumors). BTW, the deadline to declare for the draft is January 15th, so we should see some big decisions coming up soon. And for those wondering, the lists are organized by position then alphabetically.

    Chris Henry, RB, Arizona
    Marshawn Lynch, RB, Cal

    Limas Sweed, WR, Texas
    Mario Urrutia, WR, Louisville*
    Martin Rucker, TE, Missouri
    Sam Baker, OT, USC

    If Revis and Cason declare, would Hall still most likely get drafted before them? If both declare I think a trading down would be a smart decision, get a quality cb, which is needed, an extra pick, and not such a big hit on our salary cap.

    I'd be happy with Landry/Nelson/Cason/or Revis.

    Id be a toss up depending on workouts, but They could all go around picks 10 - 20. It should come down to if the team is drafting more for potential or immediate impact. Hall has been productive and could probably help out right away while Cason and Revis would need abit of time to develop.

    I presume you mean Ray Rice since Sidney is elidgable . . . ?

    Sidney's already elidgable, he's a RS Sophmore. He's already said he was returning, I have his name and the link in the Return section if you want to read it. It is possible he's leaving for the draft, but as of now he said he's returning.

    I checked out the link and noticed it was dated in Novemer. The guys calling the game were talking about how Spurrier would promise certain numbers and somehow Mike Williams' name was mentioned.

    nice post Lork 88 :)

    good crop of tackles next draft, unless the Texans totally suck & have a shot @ Brohm I'll bet the house they use their 1st pick on a OT :bowser:

    I think he is petitioning to see where people rank him for the draft before he says whether he is staying or going officially.

    Brohm acted like he wasn't totally sold on staying last night after the Orange Bowl. JMO.

    Timmons has signed with Drew Rosenhaus, so you can put him under the declaring for draft column.

    The 08 draft is shaping up to be pretty stout all the way around.

    He's there already. Ive got a buddy on another site named NinersLacking who somehow finds articles and stuff out right away, so he's helping me with it.

    He isnt completely sold, but last I heard he said he's staying for now. It should be interesting how some draft grades will effect their decisions (ie Sidney Rice). For those unfamiliar with it, theirs a draft committee where players can submit their name to them and they'll say where they think the player will go. Most times, their pretty harsh about it but for good reason.

    Yea the '08 draft is looking real solid in QB, RB, and LT. Should be really interesting and i would expect some good people to fall to the 2nd round with so many quality 1st-2nd rounders. I'd imagine we spend next years first day on offense and this years on defense. You have to take what the draft gives you and that's kind of how the stars are aligning.

    Agreed Old Miss. I believe we're going to see a lot of hooting and hollaring from the All Day and Troy Smith crowds the end of April. Going to be Ko Simpson squared.

    Lawrence Timmons is pretty talented if he is going to play in college and the nfl next year. He already declared.:)
