    let's look at that for a sec

    what would happen if Bush stayed in school and Young declared

    or if both stayed in school

    or (simplified) who'd be #1 if Bush didn't declare ?

    I stated the same thing, too. If Fisher wants to relive the EG days, but probably with a little more speed but similar power, White is the guy. I'm just pretty sure Pittsburgh takes him to replace Bettis, and then if they miss or Philly doesn't do it first, New England, to backup/eventually replace Corey Dillon. I'd love if we got an extra 2nd and used it on White, though.


    Speaking of DeAngelo, I can see the Jets or Green Bay taking him at 4 or 5.

    No Bush, but Young

    Hou - Ferguson; NO - Leinhart; Titans - Hawk/M.Williams/D.Williams/VYoung

    or

    Hou - Leinhart(DCarr due $8mil roster bonus)
    NO - V Young
    Titans - Ferguson/etc.

    3rd is fine but that is if Young stays in school if he comes out Young definately no question.

    Arrington was #2 and Urlacher #9 in 2000

    Keith Brooking and Takeo Spikes #12 and #13 in 1998

    Peter Boulware and James Farrior #4 and #8 in 1997

    Kevin Hardy #2 in 1996.


    It's rare, but is Hawk that special? If he's worthy of a top 10 pick then it really doesn't matter if he's taken at three. He just has to be about the best-looking prospect in the last 5 years to merit selection that high, IMO. Is he that guy?

    Wow. Troy Smith- 342 yds passing, 66 yds rushing. The last pass he completed to Gonzales was DEFINITELY McNair-esque. Spinning out of a sack to get some room to pass. Wow.
