    So, saw this topic on another board and thought I bring it up for fun. Who are going to be the top prospects for next years draft?

    Matt Lienhart (who would have guessed)
    dont know some of the names but the T from Virgnia, DE from BC, Rod Wright UT, QB from Bowling Green and I don't really know beyond that.

    What about Reggie McNeil? He showed great improment last year and if he can do the same this year with his new toys (6'7"' bennet) I think he could be like the years Jason Cambell. Where do you think he is going to go?

    I'm not even a USC fan, but this list is impressive:

    QB Matt Leinart
    RB Reggie Bush
    RB LenDale White
    WR Steve Smith
    TE Dominique Byrd
    OT Winston Justice
    OG Deuce Lutui
    DT Manny Wright
    DE Frostee Rucker
    CB Justin Wyatt
    SS Darnell Bing

    All of them are eligible for the draft next year...They've gotta be the favorites to win it all...

    the 06 draft is shaping up to be real deep...you also have to add the name of ahmad brooks...probably the most gifted linebacker since ray lewis...he almost came out this year and will most definetly come out next year

    I doubt that we will get him next year though, cause it seems like CC comes on these boards and then picks players the fans don't really want. :thumbdown

    just an update on Martin Nance, I talk to him every day about his knee condition...as some of you know, he tore his ACL in the marshall game last year, which probably prevented him from coming out early. He has started running and will be ready to go for the season opener, so hopefully he can have a great season under his belt again just like he had soph. year with Ben Roethlisberger

    The reason Mathias Kiwanuka didn't come out this season is b/c he received a mid to late 1st round grade from the NFL pettition committee made up of Personnel directors. If he would have been top 15, he would have left.

    Deangelo Williams didn't leave b/c of a leg injury he sustained in the bowl game. He was really considering it but will be a top 10 pick this upcoming year as he is the most well rounded back in the class.

    Terna Nande is another Miami (OH) guy i'm high on. very talented and very strong. May end up being the top of his class at his position when all is said and done

    Thanks for the update on Nance...Before he tore his ACL, I was dreaming of an AJ and Nance duo here...I think they'd compliment each other nicely...Hopefully he can bounce back from his injury and have a good showing next year...

    Barring injury, Kiwi should easily be a top 15 pick next year...He needs to show he can stop the run a little better, but he has a lot of Freeney in him...I would love to have a player with his size and speed coming off the edge...

    I wonder if Reggie McNeal will play something besides quarterback in the NFL?

    I think he has the ability to play QB in the NFL. I don't really see him playing as a WR or any position like that, but you never know.

    That was a good pick, but can any of you say that you wanted the texans to pick him?
