Gotta love the Cromartie and Sims picks as an FSU fan.
I'm biased, but I think Sims and Brooks are really close. Sims has that nasty streak to him...and is one of the fastest guys on our team...as a linebacker. Scary.
Callahan Bright might go to a prep school, by the way, because apparently he had a long way to go with academics heading into this year. He's made strides, but he was pretty far off. We'll see. Rouse has some work to do, too, but the coaches at Lincoln High are apparently pretty good with that sort of stuff.
To continue with the homerism, Xavier Lee of Florida State is a very impressive player. He has superb arm strength, although he's taking some time to develop since he played in a shotgun offense in high school. He's a dual threat quarterback with tantalizing athletic ability.
Drew Weatherford, also of FSU, is impressive, too. If the QB job is decided by work ethic, he'd take it without a doubt.
To add to your list, Kenneth Phillips of Miami is incredible. The dude can flat out hit...great size/speed...and is a superb, mature leader on the field. Hate to see him go to the dark side, but we never had much of a shot on him. I'll settle for just stealing Antone.
I think Melvin Alaeze might outgrow DE in a 4-3 defensive set. Since Maryland runs a 3-4, he should fit in fine as a 3-4 DE. He's already pushing 280, so with some additional weight (doesn't need all that much), he could legitimately move inside. He's not exactly the fast rush end featured in college. His strength and size is what makes him who he is...he pushes guys around from the end.
Maualuga might outgrow LB as well.
"The son of Bobby Bowden once again proved he's as predictable as a Julia Roberts' movie.
And upon further review, just as sappy, too."
