    Great idea for a thread like this. Keep in mind these players still have the option to withdraw from the draft. I forget when the deadline is, but I think it's like 4 weeks before the draft (so long as they havn't signed an agent)?

    this is the one I've been expecting & wanting. I know the Texans are pretty set @ WR but if Nicks is available in the 2nd I can't imagine a better player available?

    Eric Norwood did declare, but changed his mind. He is going back to school.

    I like this guy's game. He's very athletic for a TE. I was unaware he is already 24 years old.

    The guy is talented. No doubts there.

    On an unrelated note, I have heard that Sam McGuffie will be transferring to Rice.

    Anyone know if there is any truth to that?

    According to Channel 13 he's already in the classroom at Rice for the current Spring semester.
    Back to "Declarations for 2009". I dunno, what's the drop-dead date for 2009 declarations ?

    I believe that's the main reason that he declared for this draft. His stock is very high after catching 111 passes and scoring 21 total TDs this year, there isn't much more for him to prove. He's like a slightly more talented Chris Cooley. I'm very high on him.

    The last day for underclassmen to declare is 1/15. The player has until 1/18 to change his mind if he doesn't sign an agent.

    Lot of people saying this will be an extraordinarily strong Draft because even more eligible underclassmen will come out than normal to avoid the threat of a new union contract with the NFL Players which would cap rookie contracts in future years.
