Discussion in 'College Football & the NFL Draft' started by threetoedpete, Jan 12, 2008.
Several interesting players to watch for day two canidates.
I am going to predict right here and now that on the list of two teams worth of all stars you will find the Texans 7th round draft pick.
My early favorite is Bryan Kehl Lb from BYU. Subject to change.
Matt Flynn (LSU) is going to play in this?
Where is he projected to be picked?
I will be meeting all the players today. They have to spend some time with the Shriner patients. I will try to take some pictures and post them. I will report back later.
If you can, try to meet Curtis Johnson, LB, from Clark Atlanta. His stock has gone up alot.
Well let us know bout the light wieght lineman....whether they have the personlity and they can move.
Couple of QBs we can stash away on the PS for rainy day...'09. Project guys just in case. I watched the Delaware guy, Palko one afternoon. He's a good project player. I wouldn't mind a FA contrct or late day two pick on Dennis Dixon. Let the staff work with him for a couple of off seasons. See if the arm and mind develope.
I can't wait to see these guys preform and see some new prospects for the 2008 NFL draft.
Thanks. You are lucky to go. Have fun.
The Delaware guy is Flacco. Palko played for Pitt last year. Flacco is huge, and has a cannon. He has a shot to go in the second, but more than likely he will go in the 3rd.
Same guy. He transferred to Delaware from Pitt.
I like Dennis Dixon as well. His injury might cause him to fall to where he might be had for a late rounder
Right. But he said the guy from Deleware was Palko, not Flacco. I was trying to clear things up.
I had a great time with the players yesterday at the Shrine Hospital. I have some good pics but I am trying to figure out how to get them on the board(that should take me about two years)Dick Vermeil and Mike White came over to talk with me. I spoke with Matt Flynn and he was very nice but seemed quiet. JD from Clark,Atlanta was also very nice. Actually,they were all great. Sam Keller,the QB from Nebraska was a riot. His dad lives in my mom's hometown so they spent a lot of time talking about where they went when they were younger. He stayed with me for a few hours. The defensive coordinator from the Bills was there. I told him that the Texans need Marshawn Lynch. He laughed and told me that if I liked Marshawn(sp) I should become a Bills fan. I told him no. All the guys but the one from Texas said they don't care what team from the NFL would pick them. One said any team but the Cowboys while the player from UT wants to be a Cowboy and beat the Steelers a--.
Vermiel just said that he has a hurt shoulder and is being replced by the Marshal QB.
Pedro Sosa, LT from Rutgers, about 6'4-6'5, 290-295 lbs
I'm still not sure whether he can handle the really quick guys in the NFL.
The nfldraftscouts.com reports that he did well in practice today:
"Sosa rarely got beat today, using his nice footwork and extending his long arms to keep (defensive) ends at bay. His anchor is pretty solid as well. "
ESPiN the Rag showed him undrafted or maybe 7th round.
I threw away the issue already, otherwise I'd confirm.
Michael Grant, FS, ARK
More reports from Shrine game:
Alvin Bowen, LB, SS (Iowa St.)
Ryan Wendell, C, Fresno St.
Kevin O'Connell, QB, SD St.
Flacco looked good in the playoffs for 1-AA but had a bad game against app state and I do like Wendell also
