First Clarett, now Fitz. Who's next?

Postby moochman » Fri Feb 06, 2004 12:22 pm

According to Alan Robinson of the AP, Larry Fitzgerald is offically eligible for the NFL draft. Which brings to mind two questions. Where will Fitz go? And will there be any others who opt for the draft?
Somebody help me out here, what is the name of the RB form K State? I thought he looked like he was ready to play in the bigs, and sould take a chance on him before Clarett. Any others you can think of?

Personally I think that any team would be crazy to take on Clarett. Although I have heard of teams that are looking to draft him as high as the 2nd round.

the RB from K State is Derran(sp?) Sproles I believe...very agile, shifty runner. Fitz is eligible because he's 3 years removed of high school...Clarret went to court over it...Sproles would have to be/do one or the other

Who's next?

Save a roster spot! There's a guy on my son's 11 and under pee wee team who plays any position on the field. Split end is his specialty, and he's a hell of a pass rusher coming off the edges. His friend's dad's friend is a lawyer, so I expect the NFL will be hearing from them any day.

Im pretty sure that there won't be anymore surprise eligible players this year. We all knew Fitzgerald was going to be eligible, but somehow Clarett convinced a jury that he needed to play to make money or somthing. Fitzgerald will likely go 2nd to the Raiders and Clarett will probably go mid to late 2nd round.

Thanks, Sproles is the name, or close to it. If the NFL can't hold up the Clarett decision, whomever else wants to apply for the draft can just declare. If a frosh had a great season and is a dunce, has no interest in going through the college moments, or simply wants to get paid he should give it a try. And the league and the NCAA should stop fooling themselves about the amature student athlete status of the product...err...I mean players and allow them to enter the draft and withdraw anytime before they are chosen without penalty. Let them find out their value and if they're falling to far in the draft, remove themselves on the spot and try to increase their value in college.

I think it's rare underclassmen would be drafted. I think o-linemen would be the most common choice to break the old rule.

I think the top 10 players that would be ready for the NFL are (in no order):

1. Larry Fitzgerald, Soph. WR
2. Maurice Clarett, Soph. RB
3. Mike Williams, Soph WR
4. Rodrique Wright, Soph. DT
5. Winston Justice, Soph. OT
6. Brad Smith, Soph. QB
7. T.A. McLendon, Soph. RB
8. Justin Blaylock, Redshirt Freshman, OG
9. Frank Gore, Soph. RB (if he was injury-free)
10. Mike Degory, Soph. C
