    I was trying to watch Texas Left Tackle. Huff did not impress me as much as I have been hyping him.

    Ive bee a fan of Lendale White for a long time and R Bush downright did nothing to show me he is all that and a bag of popcorn.

    Not sure who the Texas TE was but that guy was impressive!

    Dwayne Jarrett is a sophomore, I think, but I liked what I saw from him. David Thomas had a great game - that is what I'd like to see from a TE here in Houston. LenDale White did what he's done all year and looked great doing it. His running style is going to translate to the NFL much better than Bush's - no dancing or trying to get a corner. The LBs and DBs in the NFL are too fast for that. Jonathan Scott looked pretty good too.

    Texas' whole offensive line and Lutui looked very good. Michael Griffin had a great interception.

    Lutui would look good in a Texans Uni!

    Trade down, get Da Brick or a OT

    in the 2nd if Lutui is there, grab him

    Lutui is a huge RG and he should last till the 3rd or 4th round. As will David Thomas who reminded me alot of Chris Cooley. Huff and the Griffins looked very solid and would all be nice pickups. Hopefully this game hurt a little of Huff's status and he will fall to the second, but I doubt it. There has been several people on this board who have long been stating that L. White was the real RB at USC and that cat just pumped his draft status to the middle of the first round. Jon Scott and Winston Justice looked solid, but they are definately the second tier of linemen. Scott needed a decent amount of help with Frostee Rucker on several ocassions, but that is not really an issue. Blaylock was solid, but would benefit from another year. Selvin Young is a scat back that I could see someone picking up in the later rounds if he comes out. Steve Smith should go to the draft, he might have made himself a nice pick if he runs well he becomes the second highest rated WR in the draft. These are the guys I watched and it was a very good game, definately one of the top 5 college games I have seen.

    David Thomas looked like an all pro last night. Ill take him rd 3.
    D Byrd looked good as well. 4th round.
    Scott and Blaylock both look like 2nd rounders.
    Winston Justice looked like a 2nd rounder.
    Huff did great. besides the one stuff arm, great tackling. late first to early 2nd.
    Casey Studdard, 3-4 round. Solid.
    Rod Wright, mid 2nd round. Not impressive last night.
    Lutui, 2nd-3rd round. Beast.
    Dwayne Jarrett - 2-3 round. Great leaping catch.
    And of course, Young, Bush, Lienart, White. First round.

    other than that, these guys need to go back for another year.

    Dwayne Jarrett is a sophomore and can't enter the draft. Watch out for that kid next year, though. He was money last night.

    Vince Young if he comes out will be the #1 pick. he has convinced me that he is ready now to play QB @ the next level. what the heck the Texans will do with Carr is anybodys guess :confused: several teams will offer substantial packages to aquire that 1st pick now thats for sure :)

    Reggie Bush is still a great player, but as you could see does not touch the ball enough. he will be motivated even more to work harder & should come into the draft in tip top injury free shape.

    Michael Huff increased his stock dramaticly (for those who had not paid attention to UT) I would say he is a top 15 pick. Can cover, support the run, is a big hitter with speed & can play a number of db positions.

    LenDale White was the best RB in the game (Chalres looks good for the future). powerful & explosive knows how to find & hit the hole, money in the Red Zone. have not heard yet if he is coming out or not?

    Jonathan Scott only helped himself as well. looks to me like he would be a excellent run blocking guard at the next level, like a Davin Joseph, but has the size & height that should grade him out higher.

    Winston Justice will be a 1st rd pick if he comes out. he handled his buisness against a top rated D-L. should be a franchise RT in the NFL.

    David Thomas is undersized (unlike Byrd) but no doubt had a great game. I see him more of a value pick in the 4th or 5th rd. solid, smart player.
