    I haven't seen anything posted about him except is 4.3 ish forty

    http://uclabruins.collegesports.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/drew_maurice00.html

    from what I read on this, he has some breakaway speed also..

    how do you College football junkies feel about him as a later pick and how does he compare to what we have now? (I haven't seen any highlights of him and I don't follow Pac -10)

    Smaller than RB, and played in the same weak conference as him too. He is unlikely to make a team as anything more than a #3 for a while.

    We don't need another RB with Davis, Morency, and Wells. If we did need a RB, then Reggie Bush would easily be our pick in the draft. But Drew is a nice player, very short but strong and shifty.

    He's a short but very thick, explosive back with massive thighs and will be very Warrick Dunn-like in the NFL. He's going to be a top 3rd down back at worst and a dynamite special teamer. He has incredible return skills. I see him as a first day pick.

    I have Maurice Jones-Drew slated to go to the Falcons in the 2nd...I think he can step in and fill Warrick Dunn's shoes nicely if Dunn were to get cut...

    This kid is a freak for his size. He posted a 36" vertical at 5'8! UNREAL.

    At 5'6 1/2 actually...He was generously listed at 5'8" by UCLA.
