Our very own Alex Boone, C.J. Spillman and Curtis Taylor played in it. Also..

RB Javarris James - Colts.

CB Glover Quin - Texans, starter

OT Ramon Foster - Steelers, starter

2006 - Colston
2005 - Jay Ratliff, Brandon Jacobs
2004 - Jared Allen, Wes Welker

And if you look up the 2008 roster.. there's a bunch more. Just too tired to write 'em all. In fact, hittin' the hay now. But there's a brief look.

Thx for the info!
Really, a pretty lean roster this year. All eyes should be on Austin and Moch. Moch could be one of the more intriguing players in the draft, as he reportedly has run under 4.40, for a LB/hybrid 3-4 player. Should be fascinating to watch.

I expect both of these players to land somewhere in that second round. Beyond these two, I see a lot of mid-late rounders, and many undrafted free agents.

Devlin and Taylor will get a good look, for different reasons. Can Devlin play with the big boys, and is Taylor willing to take some reps at another position. More than likely, Devlin will end up being a 3rd-4th rounder, and Taylor a QB/Slash/Wildcat player if drafted.

Good to know Maryland is in the West and Texas is in the East.

Doesn't make much sense, does it? Have no idea how they make the rosters, considering that fact.
The WAC is representin! GO Fresno!

That picture.. Oh, goodness..

Yes, Chris Carter could get a good look from all teams at OLB. Pretty good speed, but I want to see him shed some blocks.
I think Cliff Matthews is a major sleeper.

A lot of good guys in this game.

Is Marvin Ausitn still a 1st round prospect?

The only guy from Fresno i'd be interested in is Junior DT Logan Harrell... he's too small for a 3-4 DT but if he bulked up he could play DE in the NFL. He had 13 sacks this year. At the home opener I went to against Cincinnati he had 4 sacks.

I dont know if he's declared or not... havent heard anything so I suppose he hasnt.

His stock isn't a 1st anymore, but as far as talent, it's still there. We'll see how he plays. Since he wasn't able to play this year, scouts are going to put a lot more stock into this game and the combine. Of course you have the prior years film, too

Thanks and is he more of a 3-4 DE or NT prospect?
