    Just finished visiting a professional drafting service sight and it had a mock draft for the first two rounds and it had us taking Bush with the first pick and Mcneil from Auburn with our second pick.

    I'll be the first to admit that I have never seen him play, but he was rated the 4th highest OT in the draft behind d'brick, winston, and scott. I also noticed this guy is 6-8 weighs in at 335 and runs his 40 in 5.1 which makes him 2-3 inches taller 30lbs heavier and 2/10ths faster than the others....does anyone have any insight on this guys abilities??? He's obviously faced good talented teams and has held his own to be ranked that high...but does anyone have in depth information on this "cat"??

    i seen him in person twice and would say that he is pretty good. in 2004 he went up against marcus spears and did very well, held spears pretty quiet the whole game. this year he had a great game. with that being said he probably went against our fourth best pass rusher in chase pittman, but he didn't need any help. he also goes against mcclover in practice and he is probably the best pass rusher in the sec, reports say he pretty much dominates him. he is a good lineman but would rather have max if he is still on the board.

    thanks for the info, but i believe that max is projected to go near the end of the 1st round...what did surprise me is that bobby carpenter's stock seems to be slipping and is projected to go mid 2nd round...anyone know why?

    I believe Carpenter was out with an injury for the Fiesta Bowl. Not sure how serious the injury is/was but that might be the reason for the drop in his stock.
