    Most of the time, a guy with his exposure would be a first round pick no matter when they came out. Might move up a round or two, but i think if the NFL thinks was a first rounder in 2010, he would be one in 2009.

    Should be working on a master's now. Actually...Texas law says classes taken after 120 hours have been completed, or 4 years, will be a lot more expensive as the class no longer falls under public education. I'm thinking he's had to take 3 hour semesters or so to retain his scholarship. Then again, I have no idea how an athletic scholarship works.

    At this point, his age is only going to hurt his draft stock. He'll be 25 I believe when he is drafted, meaning he'll be older than Mario who will have been drafted #1 overall 3 drafts prior. (Mario, Long, this draft, THEN his draft).
