He's not on the list but I would have to say Luis Castillo, DT Northwestern. The guy has first round talent but could slip to the third due to the fact that he's still developing and he did go to NW.

Kevin Everett, TE, Miaimi. Could be an awesome TE in the NFL and would be a great pick in the 4th.

Taylor Stubblefield would be a steal in the 6th.

Matt McCoy would be a good early third Rd pick. But we don't really need any more OLBs...unless it's DJ :D

I think Scott Young, the offensive lineman from BYU could be a real sleeper. The guy played defensive line his whole career until switching the the OL last year. He really impressed me at the combine with his speed (5.06 in the 40) and strength (43-reps in the bench press) - WOW! His combo of natural speed and strength along with his inexperience makes him an interesting prospect that most people problably haven't heard much of.

Of course, I've got a special place in my heart for Lirpa Yadsloof! :wink:

ASU QB to make draft debut... There'll be a more than intriguing workout later today when Arizona State QB Andrew Walter takes to the field. Walter has been sidelined since late last year when he underwent surgery to repair a shoulder injury. With a strong showing today, walter, who throws one of the best deep passes in all football, could firmly establish himself as one of the top second-tier QBs in this year's draft.

I would love to see him in the 4th. That shoulder of his was nasty. I think it'll make him fall past Orton, McPherson, Frye, and possibly LeFors, despite Walter's workouts. Hard to look past a massive shoulder injury when his strength is the deep ball.

Where is that Beck slated to go? Third round? He could develop into something special.

There seem to be so many interesting guys this year late in the draft. I really hope Millen trades down and stays put rather than forcing the issue. Our slots at 10 and 41 are fine relative to the candidates available and our needs and those late round picks have a chance to land us some gems.
