****

Former Notre Dame football star Jeff Samardzija struggles to catch on as minor league baseball pitcher.

DD.comment: The Cubs "brain trust" was just plain stupid for handing Samardzija that much guaranteed money. But the Cubs have so much money to burn, we doubt they really care. Again, Samardzija was a "good college pitcher" (4.35 ERA in final season at N.D.) in a very medicore Big East Conference. We said this 6 months ago and we'll say it again: The Cubs overpaid because he was a local football icon, with a decent arm, and they wanted to show their fans they could steal a likely first round pick away from the N.F.L.

How tough is it to make the jump from Notre Dame's baseball team to the Majors?

Current Major League pitcher Aaron Heilman was a very high impact college pitcher -- 15-0 in 15 starts, with a 1.74 ERA in his final season at Notre Dame -- and he's nothing more than a glorified National League "mop up" reliever going into his 7th pro season! Good luck to the Shark (who goes for his first win of the season tonight), he'll need it in baseball.

Very Early Top Sophomore Offensive Tackles Watch List [Loosely Ranked]:

Eben Britton ~ Arizona

Ciron Black ~ Louisiana State

Andre Smith ~ Alabama

Sam Young ~ Notre Dame

Adam Ulatoski ~ Texas

Jason Fox ~ Miami-Florida

Aleksey Lanis ~ U.C.L.A.

Trent Williams ~ Oklahoma

Russell Okung ~ Oklahoma State

Rocco Cironi ~ Michigan State

Devin Tyler ~ Temple

DD.comment: Obviously it's very early in the evaluation process and a lot can change going forward. Take this list for what it is -- a very early watch list for the top sophomore offensive tackles. Also, we seriously considered pro potential (size, strength and athletic ability) in the above rankings, in addition to 2006 on-field production as freshmen, so some of the players on the list did not do huge things as freshman, but are seen as fine future prospects. On more point: It's way early, but this looks like it can be a very strong class of offensive tackles.

DD.comment: Here's how one of our inside sources described Armstrong's N.F.L. workout yesterday: "Well the [pro-day] went okay. 27 on the bench press, 7' 11" on broad jump and 24" vertical leap. But here's the problem: The scouts brought him out in 90 degree weather, with 100% humidity, and ran him into the ground with 40's and then 20 minutes non-stop in position drills first. Then they said bench press. That's real tough, because he's a 320 pound nose tackle. They could see he was tired. There were scouts arguing about how many reps to give him on the bench, because they told him to lock out at the end when he couldn't go anymore".

****

N.B.A. teams have only 12 man rosters, and with a growing pool of foreign born talent coming into the league each season, it's reasonable to expect that the vast majority of undrafted prospects will have a very hard time carving out solid N.B.A. careers. But while being snubbed on draft night is clearly a major road block for players that desire N.B.A. fame and fortune, it doesn't automatically mean their fantasy of making an impact in the league has been dashed for good.

Actually, to be more specific, most of the receivers in the Top 20 on the list above made a tangible impact for their teams as freshman in 2006 (Collie in 2004).

LB Xavier Adibi ~ Virginia Tech

RB Tashard Choice ~ Georgia Tech

OL Gosder Cherilus ~ Boston College

DT Andre Fluellen ~ Florida State

OL Barry Richardson ~ Clemson

LB Vince Hall ~ Virginia Tech

LB Phillip Wheeler ~ Georgia Tech


Nine Juniors to Watch Closely [Not Ranked]:

RB Bandon Ore ~ Virginia Tech -- Very powerful running back, who rushed for over 1,100 yards and scored 16 rushing TD's in '06. Has excellent hands coming out of the backfield and is a hard worker.

RB James Davis ~ Clemson -- Has rushed for over 2,000 yards and scored 26 TD's in his short career. Teams with super sophomore C.J. Spiller to form, perhaps, the nation's top running back tandem.

OT Andrew Gardner ~ Georgia Tech -- Very agile and powerful left tackle prospect, who has been a steady force for the Jackets since his freshman season in 2005. Excellent athlete, who has added 50 pounds to his 6' 6" frame since arriving at G.Tech (is now 300 pounds).

DE Calais Campbell ~ Miami-Florida -- Some think this 6' 7", 280 pound edge rushing terror might be the best defensive player in America. Most insiders feel he's a future top 5 pick (ala Gaines Adams)?

LB Geno Hayes ~ Florida State -- At only 6' 2' and about 220 pounds, Hayes could use a little more bulk, but he's got good speed and should be a big time playmaker for F.S.U., if he stays healthy.

LB Erin Henderson ~ Maryland -- This speedy weakside linebacker came back from a devastating knee injury in 2005 and led the A.C.C. in tackles last season (114). Brother of Minnesota Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson.

CB Tony Carter ~ Florida State -- Not the biggest prospect around at only 5' 9" and about 175 pounds, but he's very athletic and extremely fast -- clocked at 4.35 coming out of high school.

CB Brandon Flowers ~ Virginia Tech -- Part of a potentially dynamic cornerback duo with fellow Hokies junior Macho Harris. Both have excellent speed and play with a lot of confidence, which is needed "on the island".

FS Kenny Phillips ~ Miami-Florida -- Has been a high impact defender, with a nose for the football since his freshman season. Great combination of size, speed and toughness. Is he Miami's next great safety?

I have been continuously looking but I have yet to find out what ever happened to former Texas Christian quarterback Tye Gunn. Did he just retire from his injuries after college or is he still playing?

We don't think he ever signed a contract to play pro football at any level, so coaching would be a way for him to stay in the game. Thanks, we hope this helps.

DD.com Reply: Paul, thanks for the nice words. Much appreciated. We were actually talking about Catanese's plight the other day with a noted football person. He was not aware of Zach's current status and we have not seen or heard anything about him since the week after the draft. We will post any news on Catanese, as soon as we get it.

By the way, another quality defensive back that remains unsigned is former Iowa State Cyclones cornerback DeAndre Jackson, who also saw his quest to be drafted dashed by a very untimely injury as a senior.

DD.com Mailbag [Matt]:

I know the rankings are early for the top sophomore running backs but with such a large list I was surprised to not find James Aldridge of Notre Dame up there. This kid runs real hard and that should help his chances of being successful at the next level. I was wondering what you guys think of him.

DD.com Reply: Thanks for the input, Matt. As you sagely noted, it is very early in process and we are just doing the best we can to try to rank these players based on what we saw in 2006 and their potential going forward. So it's tough. Truth is, Matt, after the top 15, or so, running backs on the list that put up strong numbers as freshman, we could've choosen about 30 different backs with "potential" to fill the last 10 spots. Alridge would be included in that group. By the way, here is a link that states James Aldridge looked strong in spring workouts.

It's official, Jared Gaither, a starting offensive lineman on Maryland's football team the last two years, has been declared academically ineligible for this fall's season.

DD.comment: As we wrote in yesterday's blog, Gaither's strong prefence was to stay in school and improve his draft stock. Now that he's lost all hope of playing this season that "might" change and he could declare for the upcoming Supplemental draft. We'll keep a close eye on this situation and report any news as soon as we get it.

Quick glance at some teams (including Baltimore) that are looking at Supplemental draft prospect Chris Patrick.

DD.comment: By the way, the link above states Patrick ran a 5.3 forty at his pro day. Soon after he ran a inside source told us he ran a 5.1 flat. No big deal, either way, because he's a 305 pound guard. But keep in mind he was hand timed, so times will vary from one stopwatch holder (scout) to another.

Very Early Top Sophomore Quarterbacks Watch List:

Matt Stafford ~ Georgia

Colt McCoy ~ Texas

Tim Tebow ~ Florida (RB)

Josh Freeman ~ Kansas State

Kerry Meir ~ Kansas

Dan Lefevour ~ Central Michigan

Jake Locker ~ Washington

Nate Davis ~ Ball State

Pat Devlin ~ Penn State

Jonathan Crompton ~ Tennessee

Matt Grothe ~ South Florida

Justin Willis ~ Southern Methodist

Kellen Lewis ~ Indiana

Isaiah Williams ~ Illinois

Sean Canfield ~ Oregon State

Mark Sanchez ~ Southern Cal

DD.comment: Obviously it's very early in the evaluation process and a lot can change going forward. Take this list for what it is -- a very early watch list for top sophomore quarterbacks. Also, we seriously considered pro potential (size, athletic ability and arm strength) in the above rankings, in addition to 2006 on-field production as freshmen. Therefore, some of the players on the list did not post great numbers as freshman, or are not expected to start this upcoming season, but are, nonetheless, seen as fine future prospects going forward.

DD.com Mailbag [Ace]:

I have been going crazy trying to find out if Maryland offensive tackle Jared Gaither is going to enter the Supplemental draft. His potential is off the charts and I believe the Atlanta Falcons would spend a 3rd rounder on him. Also, do you think Atlanta would go after Georgia cornerback Paul Oliver in the Supplemental draft?

DD.com Reply: Thanks for the questions, Ace. We reported about two weeks ago that Gaither is having a hard time deciding whether or not he will enter the Supplemental draft, but he recently told one of our sources that he's strongly leaning towards staying in school. The source informed us that Gaither, who would probably project as a 3rd or 4th round pick in the Supplemental draft, told Maryland coaches that he intended to remain in school. We have every reason to believe Gaither wants to leave school early, but he's not real thrilled about the possibility of being drafted in the 3rd or 4th round, as he thinks he could improve his stock significantly by staying in school. Thing is, he's had some academic problems and it's not a 100 percent certain he'll be eligible to play this upcoming season. Academic issues are the only reason he's even considering the Supplemental draft at all.

Ace, we think all 32 N.F.L. teams should be interested in Paul Oliver. He's a cornerback with excellent size and speed and his coverage skills improved rapidly in 2006. We also like the fact that he's a cornerback that isn't scared to mix it up physically as a run defender. The Falcons would be foolish not to consider Oliver, but they recently drafted Chris Houston from Arkansas and the question is how much would they be willing to invest in Oliver? He works out today, so we should soon have a better idea what round he'll likely fall into. Early word is Oliver projects as a 2nd or 3rd round pick (unless he fares poorly in workouts) and we know Tennessee is looking at him real closely thanks to the whole Pacman Jones situation.

DD.com Mailbag [Charles]:

I Think you should have included Wisconsin's Travis Beckum in your junior rankings for the Big Ten. Pretty sure he's their best receiving threat right now and possibly the best tight end in the Big ten.

DD.com Reply: Thank you for the input Charles, it's much appreciated. Obviously, Beckum (a junior) did not qualify for our list of top Big Ten seniors. We mentioned nine juniors to "watch closely", but that group is not ranked from one to nine. It's just a random look at nine players that we are expecting big things from. While we readily acknowledge that Beckum is very worthy of being on a list like that, we must point out that in a talent laden conference like the Big 10 there are so many great prospects in each class and you have to cut the list off somewhere.

Other Big Ten juniors that would be very worthy of being on that list would include:

William VanDeSteeg, DE, Minnesota

Vernon Gholston, DE, Ohio State

Sean Lee, LB, Penn State

Tyrell Sutton, RB, Northwesten

Derrick Williams, WR, Penn State

Mitch King, DL, Iowa

By the way, the two toughest prospects for us to leave off the senior list, where Michigan State OLB/S Sir Darean Adams and Wisconsin wide receiver Luke Swan. Adams is a bit of a linebacker/outside linebacker "tweener", but if the hard-hitting athlete has a strong senior season and fares well in workouts, he could follow former Spartan play-alike Eric Smith into the N.F.L.

Swan is widely regarded by members of the media as an overachieving, former walk-on with limited athletic ability and great hands. But the reality is he was a big time playmaker for Badgers in 2006 (averaged 17 ypc) and he is athletic enough to have broken current N.F.L. star Lee Evans' school record for the fastest time ever in the pro-agility drill. So he has great sideline to sideline quickness (ala Wayne Chrebet) and, at the very least, he is a prospect to keep a close eye on as a senior.

About 30 minutes ago we wrote that we would put forth any additional info we got on Supplemental draft prospect Robert Armstrong. Again, while we don't know if he will be drafted or not, a reliable source of ours just sent us the following info:

Robert Armstrong is a prospect that might surprise people. He is represented by respected Bay Area based agent Angelo Wright, who already represents four true N.F.L. nose tackles -- Pat Williams, Grady Jackson, Sam Adams, and Ted Washington. Wright definitely has an eye for talent at that position and has said this Armstrong kid has been looking good in workouts.

****

List of 12 prospects -- including former West Virginia wide receiver Brandon Myles -- that will be trying out for the Atlanta Falcons soon.

Dan Leberfeld of Jets Confidential is reporting the following:

The New York Jets are in dire need of a backup nose tackle and Morgan State's Robert Armstrong has entered the Supplemental Draft. Armstrong transferred to Morgan State from Maryland. He is 6-4, 307 pounds, so he might have the requisite size.

DD.com Comment: We are not sure if Robert Armstrong is a draftable prospect, as we don't know a real lot about him. We will put forth any information we get on him as soon as it becomes available. We do remember him a bit from his days at Maryland, when he was valuble backup type.

Early Peek at the Big Ten Conference

Top Big Ten Seniors:

QB Chad Henne ~ Michigan

RB Mike Hart ~ Michigan

FB Jehuu Caulcrick ~ Michigan State

WR Dorien Bryant ~ Purdue

WR Paul Hubbard ~ Wisconsin

TE Dustin Keller ~ Purdue

OL Jake Long ~ Michigan

OL Kirk Barton ~ Ohio State

OL Jordan Grimes ~ Purdue

OL Adam Krause ~ Michigan

OL Akim Millington ~ Illinois

DE Bryan Mattison ~ Iowa

LB Dan Connor ~ Penn State

LB J Leman ~ Illinios

LB Mike Klinkenborg ~ Iowa

LB Shawn Crable ~ Michigan

CB Tracey Porter ~ Indiana

CB Adam Shada ~ Iowa

S Jamar Adams ~ Michigan


Nine Juniors to Watch Closely [Not Ranked]:

WR Mario Manningham ~ Michigan -- Not real tall, but he's a big time playmaker for the Wolverines. Has averaged almost 18 yards per catch and scored 15 TD's during his young career.

WR James Hardy ~ Indiana -- At 6' 7" and 220 pounds, with speed, hands and athletic ability, Hardy is the type of player defenders fear in the red-zone. Played for the Hoosiers' hoops team as a freshman.

WR Andy Brodell ~ Iowa -- N.F.L. scouts publicly praised his speed and athletic ability after a simply amazing Alamo Bowl, where he smoked Texas' vaunted secondary for 159 yards and 2 TD's.

DT Terrance Taylor ~ Michigan -- Not real tall at, perhaps, a shade over 5' 11", but he's a very stout 315 pound run stuffer, with enough agility and motor skills to improve as an inside rusher.

LB James Laurinaitis ~ Ohio State -- This former high school hockey star looks like a future N.F.L. first round pick. Has all the skills needed to excel in the N.F.L., but needs to add some bulk before he makes the jump.

CB Justin King ~ Penn State -- Great all-around athlete, who is the closest thing to Ted Ginn Jr. in college football. Reportedly runs a 4.35 and can excel at wide receiver or cornerback and can be an absolute terror returning kicks!

CB Malcolm Jenkins ~ Ohio State -- An elite, shut-down cornerback, who could have N.F.L. scouts in a frenzy when he's done at Ohio State. At this point, he's more polished than King at cornerback, because he's got more experience at the spot.

CB Jack Ikegwuonu ~ Wisconsin -- Another very highly regarded Big 10 corner, who has the type of size (6' 1", 200) and speed pro scouts look for. Is very tough in coverage and is not scared to mix it up pysically against the run.

FS Anthony Scirrotto ~ Penn State -- This former pro baseball prospect showed he was an elite Big Ten safety in 2006. Unfortunately, he ran into trouble recently, because 3 men allegedly attacked him on the street because a "girl" was arguing with them. The courageous trio then ran away and hid behind closed doors when Scirotto got some friends to even up the sides.

We just got word from one of our inside draft sources that Nebraska offensive lineman/Supplemental draft prospect Chris Patrick put on a pretty good display in front of N.F.L. scouts at his personal workout today: Patrick ran the 40 yard dash in 5.1 seconds, did 31 bench reps of 225 pounds and posted a 28" vertical leap....Our source did not give us Patrick's exact height and weight measurement today, but he's usually listed at 6' 4" and between 290 and 300 pounds. Again, those are very solid numbers for the former Cornhusker defensive end/offensive tackle, who will likely project as a guard/center in the N.F.L. We will post more info on Patrick when we get it.

TE Darius Hill ~ Ball State -- This 6' 5" receiver, with solid hands, proved to be an absolute red-zone terror last season, hauling in 10 TD's.

OL Andrew Hartline ~ Central Michigan -- The Chippewas' recent tradition of churning out top lineman continues with this agile 6' 5", 300 pound offensive tackle.

DE Larry English ~ Northern Illinois -- Talented and hard working edge rusher had 12 sacks last season for the Huskies. All-American candidate?

DE Jameson Hartke ~ Ohio -- The M.A.C.'s version of Grant Wistrom -- an athletic end, who won't wow you with his stats, but does everything right on the field.

LB Joey Hudson ~ Miami (Ohio) -- After a fantastic 2006 season (97 tackles, 10 TFL's and 5 Int's), some are comparing this versatile all-around athlete to Chad Greenway.

CB Londen Fryar ~ Western Michigan -- Son of former N.F.L. star Irving Fryar, Londen led the M.A.C. with 6 Int's last season. It was his first year as a starter.

Seven Juniors to Watch Closely [Not Ranked]:

RB Kevin Smith ~ Central Florida -- Only a bum shoulder kept him from another 1,000 yard season in '06. Runs with great speed, power and balance. Has the look of an elite C-USA tailback.

WR Jarrett Dillard ~ Rice -- Not real big and might not be real fast, but his 91 receptions and 21 TD's in 2006 show this heady Owl is a great college wide receiver!

TE Shawn Nelson ~ Southern Miss. -- 6' 5", 245 pound athlete is a great receiving tight end, averaging almost 15 yards per catch during his career.

DE Albert McClellan ~ Marshall -- His 19 TFL's and 11 sacks paced C-USA last season. But at 6' 2" and only 225 pounds, he might be best suited as a 3-4 edge rusher in the pros.

DE Ell Ash ~ Houston -- At 6' 5" and almost 300 pounds, this agile former Tennessee Vol just looks like an N.F.L. prospect. Now he needs to post bigger numbers on the field. Can play offensive tackle in a pinch.

LB Cody Lubojasky ~ Houston -- Super productive linebacker with excellent size (6' 2", 235) and athletic ability. Can play inside or outside. Is the grandson of former N.F.L. All-Pro Bobby Maples.

CB Joe Burnett ~ Central Florida -- Very athletic corner, with reported 4.45 speed, was great in '05, but struggled a bit last season due to injuries. Excellent potential as a kick returner.

RB Kyle Bell ~ Colorado State -- When healthy, he's a great powerback. Shattered most of LenDale White's prep rushing records in Colorado.

RB Rodney Ferguson ~ New Mexico -- Another power back. He can run with the ball, but also has the blocking skills and size to thrive at fullback.

OL Ray Feinga ~ Brigham Young -- 6' 5", 325 pound guard was recruited by almost every Top 25 school in the nation, including U.S.C. and Notre Dame.

LB Jason Phillips ~ Texas Christian -- Has become, perhaps, the M.W.C.'s best all-around linebacker. Great instincts and is a tackling machine.

CB DeAndre Wright ~ New Mexico -- Some M.W.C. insiders think the speedy Wright could eventually play in the N.F.L. Solid return specialist.

DD.com Mailbag [Scout]:

Cornerback Paul Oliver from Georgia is an interesting player that will be available in the Supplemental draft. But there is another player who is drawing much interest also. He is offensive tackle Chris Patrick from Nebraska. Patrick is a 6' 4.5", 305 pound offensive lineman that can possibly project as an offensive guard or even move to Center. He is a powerful player with good technique and body control. Several teams have a need for offensive linemen and Chris Patrick is sitting there for some team to take. Patrick, who is a converted defensive end, played extremely well in the Bowl Game vs. Auburn.

DD.comment: Scout, who has been involved in college and pro football for over 30 years, is what we would consider an N.F.L. draft insider and we are happy he sends us draft information from time to time. Joe did not send us a round projection for Oliver and Patrick, but the vibe we are getting is Oliver projects as a 2nd or 3rd rounder, pending workouts. Patrick should get serious draft consideration between rounds 4 and 6.

****

While we are on the subject of the Supplemental draft, we'd like to mention another source of ours, told us he recently talked to University of Maryland offensive tackle Jared Gaither, who is considering applying for the Supplemental draft. Per the source, Gaither is now leaning towards staying in school.

While there is no doubt Gaither, who has had some recent academic struggles, is intrigued with the possibility of testing his skills at the next level, he fully realizes that he's only played two years of college football and it might be in his best interest to stay put for at least another season. The source also told us Gaither would likely project as a 3rd or 4th rounder in Supplemental draft, but really believes he's a potential first round prospect down the line.

DD.com Mailbag [Jake]: Great site! I noticed that you posted your top players from the Sun-Belt conference, but left off some key notables and I was curious what you thought of the following players since you hadn't considered them as pro prospects: Cornerback Kyle Ward of Louisiana-Lafayette, safety Lamar Morgan of Louisiana-Lafayette and running back Jamario Thomas of North Texas.

DD.com Reply:

Thank you Jake. All the players you mentioned we seriously considered adding to our list of Sun Belt Prospects. And, clearly, all the players you mentioned will be on the radar of N.F.L. scouts this upcoming season. But, unfortunately, when you are only picking 22 seniors some talented prospects get left out.

Running back Jamario Thomas was the toughest player to ommit, but his production has steadily declined since he was a 1,000 yard rusher as a freshman and he clearly needs to bounce back as a senior. Safety Aaron Weathers from North Texas is another very good football player that barely missed the cut.

Kyle Ward is a very fast cornerback. He has some upside potential and we like him a lot, but Lionel Singleton and Leodis McKelvin were no-brainers for us, as both had great 2006 seasons and have value as kick-returners. Lamar Morgan is an excellent safety/linebacker hybrid, but he'll need to show clear cut defensive back speed to get significant N.F.L. attention.

Jake, the truth is, only time will tell how this plays out for all the players we listed. In 2006, for example, we ranked Troy State's Brannon Condren as the top safety in the Sun Belt, but who knew the hard-hitting Florida native could run as fast as he did for scouts (4.45) and would be a borderline Day 1 possibility? With a good senior season and great workouts, we can see Ward and several other Sun Belt prospects getting significant attention from N.F.L. scouts.

WR Frantz Simeon ~ Florida Atlantic -- Only 5' 10" and 185 pounds, but he's probably the Sun Belt's most feared deep threat.

WR LaGregory Sapp ~ Louisiana-Monroe -- 6' 3" receiver with terrific speed and improving hands averaged 18.5 ypc in 2006.

OT Franklin Dunbar ~ Middle Tennessee -- 6' 5", 320 pound left tackle, who might be the best lineman in the conference, already.

DT Jervante Jackson ~ Florida Atlantic -- 6' 3", 280-pound defensive tackle with athletic ability is improving against the run.

DT Trevor Jenkins ~ Middle Tennessee -- At 290 pounds he is one of biggest and strongest defensive anchors in the conference.

CB Trevor Ford ~ Troy State -- Florida State transfer with great speed. Could make a fantastic duo with McKelvin at cornerback.

Most draft followers know about the terrific running backs that have come through Rutgers the last few seasons (Justice Hairston, Brian Leanard and Ray Rice), but little is known about the big men up front that pave the way. Therefore, we recently asked our friend Art C. -- who's been a R.U. football season ticket holder for 35 years -- to break down some of their unsung heros on the offensive line. He was nice enough, as always, to help us out:

Pedro Sosa - He has the most upside, as he's a legitimate 6'5" and reportedly has an 83" wingspan. In many ways I think he's comparable Tony Ugoh of Arkansas. Sosa looks solid in all aspects - run blocking and pass blocking - but is not a blue chip, sure thing type of prospect. With a strong season and workouts I could see him going as high as the second round. He was a top recruit with many offers.

Jeremy Zuttah - He is the best and most polished of RU's lineman and has been a regular since his true freshman season. Zuttah is also versatile having started at both guard and tackle, and there was talk of him moving to center if R.U. couldn't get someone to step forward. Zuttah is very mobile and can pull and get out on screens well. To me he's an NFL guard prospect that can play tackle in a pinch. He's an ideal fit for a Denver Bronco type offense. Zuttah is also an excellent student. He presently looks like a 4th or 5th round prospect. Zuttah was another top recruit and he turned down Ohio State and other powers to stay in Jersey

Mike Fladell - This guy is one of the biggest humans I have seen. He's at least 6'7" and about 320 pounds. He's lost about 50 pounds since he enrolled. He's a masher and big reason (along with Cameron Stephenson) that R.U. ran inside so well last season - they simply moved the line of scrimmage. He's not the niftiest guy, but he can pull and get out in the open on screen passes. Fladell looks like a 6th rounder now, although he's comparable in ability to Stephenson so he could move up a round or two with a strong season.

A couple other points: R.U. linemen tend to be on light side, with most of players coming in and dropping weight (Sosa is 290-295 with a frame to carry more weight). Also, the offensive line coach - brought in 3 years ago - is nothing short of superb.

Some N.F.L. scouts comment on talented Virginia defensive end Chris Long.

DD.Comment: We know Long is getting a lot praise from scouts for his "technique" and "motor", but let's not forget this kid is an elite athlete for his size. It's well known that he was an absolute dunking machine when he played basketball as a teen. Also, if you watch him on tape, you see excellent sideline to sideline quickness, as well as the strong vertical leap.

DD.Comment: Like the safeties, this is a tough group to rank, as we could've easily added another 20 cornerbacks to the bottom part of the list. But, reality is, these players' will eventually be ranked mostly by their 40 times and workout results. Cornerback is a pure speed position....Also, Georgia's Paul Oliver would've ranked very high on this list, but he opted to enter the upcoming Supplemental draft.

Random N.F.L. Draft Notes:

The most underrated defender in college football could be Texas' "smallish" (6' 2", 280) defensive tackle Derek Lokey, who looks like a taller version of vastly underrated N.F.L. nose tackle Kelly Gregg -- both are very strong and play with great leverage....While fellow Longhorns defensive tackle Frank Okam receives most of the accolades from the media and draft followers, we've been told over and over again by those that follow the Horns' that Lokey was Texas' best defensive lineman before he went down with a leg injury last season. Lokey was so good last season, that he kept former all-world recruit/N.F.L. prospect Roy Miller glued to the bench when he was healthy....We aren't sure how the nimble Lokey, who also played fullback for UT, will project in the draft process, because he doesn't have ideal measurables. But we do know he has a chance to have a great senior season and should be squarely on the N.F.L. radar once he's done

****

While we like South Carolina linebacker Jasper Brinkley skills and think he's got a chance to be a solid pro, we just want to point out he received a Day 2 projection from the N.F.L.'s Draft advisory panel in January, so he may not be as highly regarded by N.F.L. scouts as many college football watchers believe. At the very least, he got a ways to go before he's considered a first round prospect.

****

With Marshawn Lynch and Adrian Peterson jumping to the N.F.L. early, whowill wind up as the top tailback in the senior class?

One player getting a lot love on the Net is A.D.'s replacement at Oklahoma Allen Patrick. While his running skills are very solid, some insiders feel he needs to show a lot more as a receiver next season -- he has only four career receptions and zero receptions in 2006 for the Sooners.

In 2006 we went out on a limb by ranking talented, but largely unsung, Arizona State star Ryan Torain among the top tailbacks in his class. It looks like we've got some company now, as Mel Kiper recently ranked Torain the 2nd best running back in his class.

****

Stanford wide receiver Mark Bradford and Notre Dame safety Tommy Zbikowski are "certified N.F.L. prospects". Both players received invites to last February's N.F.L. Combine. However, neither took the offer, as they both decided to return to school for a 5th season.

DD.comment: We've been predicting in our N.B.A. mock draft (which we need to update soon) that the Knicks would go for very talented, but deeply troubled Boston College center Sean Williams in round one. Isiah Thomas sort of reminds us of Dennis Green, when he was with the Vikings. The more the fans and the media push that they don't want troubled players around (i.e. Demetrius Underwood), the harder they pushed to draft these players. Williams, who can't seem to kick drug his habit, is a perfect fit for a Knicks team that appears to be going nowhere.

Because of that we are bit surprised that Carolina did not, at the very least, attempt to salvage their investment in LeFors (a 4th round pick) by trying him at wide receiver or letting him return a few kicks in pre-season games.

NBA Draft News:

The New York Post takes a quick look at Maryland guard Darryl Strawberry Jr, then takes a peek at who the Knicks and Nets are looking at in round one.

DD.comment: By the way, we are well are aware that Strawberry answers to the name D.J., but we just want to make sure the non-N.B.A. fans surfing for football news know who he is, because he's a fascinating prospect.

He is the son of former Major League Baseball star Darryl Stawberry, who was the #1 overall pick in baseball's draft back in 1980. Unlike Darryl Sr. -- who was an extremely physically gifted player, but perceived by many as a slacker (underachiever) with a ton of off-field issues, D.J. is the ultimate blue-collar hoopster. That's not to say he's not a solid athlete, because he is. But he's more of a defensive scrapper, who gives 100 percent effort all the time and is a great "team player". The potential 2nd round pick is sort of in the mold of Bruce Bowen of the Spurs.

The same source that told us two weeks ago that Maryland offensive tackle Jared Gaither was seriously considering entering the N.F.L.'s Supplemental draft, informed us today that Gaither met with University of Maryland officials this week and he will make a final decision in a few days. According to the source, Gaither projects as a potential 3rd to 4th round pick, at this point, if does enter the Supplemental draft.

DD.comment: In case anyone is wondering, we've been hearing University of Georgia cornerback Paul Oliver is being projected as a potential 2nd to 3rd round pick in the upcoming Supplemental draft. How high he goes will depend on how fast he runs in workouts. Oliver, who was very highly regarded coming out of high school, had a breakout season in 2006 and possesses excellent size and speed for a cornerback.

Also, University of Nebraska offensive tackle Chris Patrick hopes to be part of the Supplemental draft (application hasn't been accepted yet) and word is he will likely project as a guard in the N.F.L.. He could be selected anywhere between the 4th and 7th rounds, pending workouts.

Contra Costa Times: The fledgling United Football League can stand where others fell.

DD.comment: You can forget about any kind of major league pro sports franchise being viable in Mexico. Pure fantasy, pushed by the liberal U.S. media -- the exchange rate situation is so bad, it would be insurmountable. Their financial problems would be much worse than those experienced by the Montreal Expos until 2004 and, currently, the Toronto Blue Jays and Toronto Raptors.

Suppose Mexico City got a pro team and had to bid for talent against U.S. based teams. With an almost 11 pesos to $1 exchange rate, a $64,000 N.F.L. practice squad player would cost the Mexican owner $700,000 pesos. Imagine trying to sign Peyton Manning, Michael Vick or Reggie Bush with that disadvantage!
