    What he said.

    Maybe Tupou if he comes back and has a great year.

    Bisharat after winning the Heisman.

    (Yeah, yeah. You have to be 3 years removed from high school to declare. Don't ruin my post by pointing that out.)

    He's definitely a possibility if he plays well and stays out of trouble.

    The only other one I can see is Davis Webb, but I don't really know what to make of him yet. NFL doesn't like TTech QBs and I don't catch many Tech games. Then again Goff just went first overall and basically ran a system similar to Tech's..

    Chido is an absolute lock, Ted is likely.

    Tupou is one of those guys who doesn't do enough spectacular stuff to go in the first 4-5 rounds but if he can prove to be a solid run stuffer and take up blockers he not only should be drafted but also make a roster.

    If Sean Irwin has another solid year I wonder if a team would take a flyer on him with the intent of moving him to OT like Denver did with Lepsis years ago.

    Ted, Chido, Tupou, Webb and I think J. Irwin has a huge year and leaves.

    Awuzie in first two days. Thomson in 5th. Others are UFAs unless Tupou comes back possessed. Then he could go anywhere after Day 1.

    Tupou and Awuzie. Anybody know what type of 40 time Awuzie runs?

    Chido is the only one who is pretty much a guarantee at this point. Thompson and Tupou I think make their way in the draft with solid seasons.

    I think Awuzie is a lock and Webb would be highly likely. Ted & Tupou possibly.

    I think Thompson will be one of the first five safties started. Awuzie the same for corners, plus he's great covering slot guys and has size and mean streak to play safety.

    Tupou and a motivated Samson could be drafted too.

    What about Carrell? Is he a guy that has NFL potential?

    Well somebody will for sure, I'd say Awuzie is the best bet. Tupou probably will if he balls. He has size you can't teach. Maybe a few others in late rounds. Then again, I thought Spruce would get drafted.

    This is a fun game. Its like trying to pick lottery numbers. You know which number gets picked the most on the list but you just cant be sure when you put your money on the line...
