Caught the tail end of a comment at the end of College Football Live where the commentator said there is breaking news that WR Dez Bryant has been ruled ineligible to play for OSU. :-S

Edit: I found a link.

Watch QB Tony Pike of Cincinnati tonight against South Florida. He's tall and athletic with a rocket arm and has the talent to be a late first rounder. WR Mardy Gilyard could also find himself drafted in the late second round come next year.

could someone tell me who is the favorite for the heisman so far, and what would be the top 5 offensive player drafted ? QB, WR and RB ...

I'm about to deal for the first overall pick next year and that would help me alot...

Check out the Heisman talk here.

FYI, typically the Heisman winner is no guarantee to be fantasy relevant. Here are the winners from the past 10 years:

1999 Ron Dayne Wisconsin RB
2000 Chris Weinke Florida State QB
2001 Eric Crouch Nebraska QB
2002 Carson Palmer USC QB
2003 Jason White Oklahoma QB
2004 Matt Leinart USC QB
2005 Reggie Bush USC RB
2006 Troy Smith Ohio State QB
2007 Tim Tebow Florida QB
2008 Sam Bradford Oklahoma QB

Not really a lot of fantasy studs in there.

As for top fantasy rookies for next year, right now it looks like the following:

Quarterback
Jake Locker, Jr. Washington (6'3", 226)
Sam Bradford, Jr. Oklahoma (6'4", 219)
Jimmy Clausen, Jr. Notre Dame (6'3", 217)
Colt McCoy, Sr. Texas (6'3", 214)


Running Back
C.J. Spiller, Sr. Clemson (5'11", 198)
Jahvid Best, Jr. California (5'10", 198)
Jonathan Dwyer, Jr. Georgia Tech (5'11", 235)
Ryan Matthews, Jr. Fresno State (5'11", 220)
Toby Gerhart, Sr. Stanford (6'1", 235)


Wide Receiver
Dez Bryant, Jr. Oklahoma State (6'2", 215)
Brandon LaFell, Sr. LSU (6'3", 209)
Damian Williams, Jr. Southern California (6'1", 192)

I don't have ESPN insider, but Todd McShay put out his 2010 Mock Draft.

A SD forum quotes him saying this-

"29th San Diego Chargers Record: 10-3

Jonathan Dwyer*, RB, Georgia Tech
Darren Sproles is an excellent change-of-pace back but he's too small to be the primary ball carrier, and 30-year-old LaDainian Tomlinson hasn't looked the same the past two years. Taking Dwyer here would give the Chargers a physical between-the-tackles runner capable of carrying the ball 20-plus times and setting up the play-action package."

The Seahawks have 2 1st rounders. A blogger comments on the two players McShay has Seattle taking.

Oh, and McShay's actual mock- "The top 10 features four defensive linemen and two defensive backs".

I'm hearing mumblings that Locker will stay in Washington for his senior season. If he does UW fans will be elated, however I think it would be a very big mistake on Lockers part. Remember Matt Leinart Jake? To be fair Locker is head and shoulders a better QB than Leinart, but I still don't think you can turn your back on probably being the #1 pick and earning #1 money. How bout Sam Bradford? There's always the injury risk, and the risk of having a down year. Be smart Jake, take the money and run.

Also I don't want my Ducks to have to face a senior Jake Locker next season. :-B

EDIT: I guess it's official now that Locker will indeed stay for his senior season. I wish you nothing but luck Jake...except against my Ducks. :-B

Locker staying in school is further proof that 'student athlete' is a farce. If he can't learn in three years that the risk of staying in school outwieghs any benefit then those schools aren't doing their job.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
