    He will still get drafted but now I think teams will wait until 3rd round or the 4th.

    I would take a gamble on him mid 3rd and on.

    Well, after appearing to be on track to by ready for an NFL camp, he will not be. He was a 2nd rounder at that point, and after this second surgery, he is now a second day guy. I don't think many teams will take him before the 5th now, but he could really make a GM look smart in about a year.

    He could be a steal on Day 2 of a team is willing to let him sit for a year.

    Am I the onoly one who is afraid that we might hear the same thing about Spencer in a couple of weeks?

    wow this really sucks for bush. he was considered a finalist for the heisman before the season and a sure 1st round pick. i feel bad for the kid.

    is there any chance he sit out this year? it seems like a really bad decision now to forego his final year at louisville. i would think if he had another year to heal and work out he'd be better than a 2nd day pick.

    Agreed: If he has already filed his papers, he's in the pool. He'll get drafted. The only question is who'll spend what when. So who would you rather have on the second day the QB prospect or the gamble on the leg guy ? Does everyone agree that a day one pick is a bit of a reach ?

    Spencer's problem is the blood flow to the cartledge. This is just a "simple"
    break. We haven't seen the charts on either guy. Your guess is as good as mine. I believe you are correct. The injuries are different. They won't know on Spencer's injury untill he tries to go.

    I wouldn't spend more than a 5th round pick on him now. In part because of the likelihood that he'll be on the shelf to start the season, and also because with the addition of Green & re-signing Dayne drafting a RB isn't nearly as big of a need as it was previously. If the Texans do not end up taking a RB this year they would most certainly take on next year with the RB class that is set to come out.

    3rd & 4th round picks still present a lot of value. You could find some real steals in those rounds.

    He'll go late i bet...sit most of the year and then could have a McGahee type rise. Agreed YTF could make some GM look really smart in a year.

    Eric Shelton is another big Louisville big back with no wiggle or elusiveness. If I had to peg his running style it would be like TJ Duckett and Stacey Mack. If he makes the Panthers next season I'd be shocked. He was a 2nd roung pick and a bit overhyped when he came out....kinda like Bush. I like Bush better as a prospect though.

    Definately a second day qb prospect. All of our qb's have not done much in the pros. Some of our runningbacks have shown that they can play, at least for a while.

    Bush as a 5th rounder would likely be a good bargin. Higher.....not.

    Bush and Shelton really aren't that similar. Shelton is a straight power back. Bush is just a giant athlete. Kind of like Jamarcus Russell.

    According to doctors, Bush's leg injury will eventually fully heal. I think he will be a very successful back for whatever organization has the balls to take him.

    He scores touchdowns, has great hands, amazing hips, and finds a way to break big plays.

    Wouldn't be suprised to see Petrino grab him in the 4th if he's still available.
