2009 NFL Draft Prospect Talk

Just for the record, knapplc, I have absolutely nothing against Lucky. In fact, I can't say for sure if I even watched a Nebraska game this year and really don't even know much about him. All I know is the many mock draft sites I've seen, and what I've read on various sites, which include quips from actual NFL scouts about Lucky, all say that the incident will hurt his draft stock. That is really the extent of this - please don't take this as a personal attack on your favorite RB. Because that is absolutely not what is going on here.

No, of course not. I know you're not taking potshots at the guy. It's cool.

Cool. Glad we got that cleared up.

If anything, my ears are tuned to a nice sleeper RB based on your recommendation. ;-D

For all of the love that coaches like Urban Meyer and Pete Carroll get, it's nice to see a columnist stand up for a player when a coach does something wrong. Check out this opinion on Pete Carroll's response to Sanchez' decision to enter the NFL draft:

Here's an idea Pete Carroll, maybe Sanchez is pissed off that he isn't getting paid millions of dollars at USC when he could be in the NFL!

I was actually going to post something about this the day it happened, but I have been so busy with Bar work I didn't. This was ridiculous IMO. Carroll was acting like a little baby because now he is without a competent QB in his opinion and he feels it hurts his chance of a National Title. This was really bad IMO and if I am a coach recruiting against him I would show him a tape of that press conference and re-enforce the words that Carroll used. The guy will tell you what you want to hear, but when you disagree he will lash out at you. Sanchez waited for him to comeback because he wanted to tell him in person and have him there, Carroll agreed to be there and then he says those things and leaves after patting Sanchez on the shoulder before Sanchez has a chance to say anything? Classless move by Pete to a kid that came to his school, sat and waited for his time even though he could have transferred and played somewhere else, and gave his all when he was in there. Way to go Pete.

Boston College defensive tackle B.J. Raji was reportedly "unblockable" today at Senior Bowl practice - in both run defense and pass rush there wasn't a single offensive lineman that could block him. He displayed a great combination of size, strength, and quickness and is solidifying his status as the top defensive tackle in the draft. 8-o

I was so hoping the Bucs could get him, but he is going way before we get a shot. He is exactly the player the Bucs need on that defense. We have not been the same since Sapp left :,-(

Another player who reportedly stood out today at Senior Bowl was Sam Houston State QB Rhett Bomar, but he's another who won't be drafted highly due to character concerns - remember he got booted from Oklahoma after accepting extra money from his job at a car dealership.

The kid is physically talented and can be a solid QB. I really think he learned his lesson and will be ok character wise. Someone could get a bargain later in the draft

I heard about Bomar. He was supposed to be the next Josh Heupel or whatever before that episode. He's not untalented.
