    As you would guess I don't particularly agree that we have less talent than SJSU but..

    This is the one area where I think Embree improved the team. He definitely pursued athletes and got them in the door and on the field. I think MM came into the best possible situation with our talent and youth as one could possibly hope for.

    Yeah except that whole list was recruited by Hawkins.

    That's what I get for responding before reading.

    Parker Orms? Has the guy even played a full season for CU.

    Been injured off and on his whole career. But the kid can play when he stays healthy. But I would think an NFL team would be skeptical. I would assume even with a great year he wouldn't get drafted and have to work his way onto a team.

    So we have 60% of an NFL offensive line. 1,000 yards for Powell should be no problem.

    When Gus Handler is listed as your 3rd best prospect on a team, I'd say that indicates a talent problem. I guess others see it a little differently..

    This.

    And while I love Orms as a Buff, the fact he's mentioned as potentially being an NFL guy is quite a stretch IMO.

    I'd say Uzo is the most likely candidate. To me Richardson is unproven...he had a career game against Cal, then a few poor games then injured. If you could sell potential, he'd be a millionaire, but potential and the amount in savings account will get you a bus ticket across town. The rest of them...who knows? Very unlikely 7 of our guys end up on an NFL roster...

    How many of those names are truly going to drafted?
    the first 2 only IMO.

    I wonder if Orms will get more playing time this upcoming season thanks to that 4-2-5 defense?

    Jack Harris has a good shot if he shows anything at LT.
