notes on players in the draf
DL Shaun Cody, USC - After talking with NFL draft insiders and pro scouts, there is definitely a wide variety of opinions on CodyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s projected draft placement. One insider said he felt Cody has risen somewhat, while another noted he hasnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢t helped himself at all. At the end of the day, Cody figures to be worthy of no higher than a third-round pick, though he will likely be selected much higher due to the scarcity at his position.
LB Odell Thurman, Georgia - One draft insider KFFL spoke with stated he thought Thurman was the best talent at the linebacker position in this yearÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s draft class. While he is a monster on the field, Thurman has reportedly been equally as troublesome off the field; this time, the opposition is law enforcement. With his character in question, one pro scout told KFFL he feels Thurman will fall far from grace - possibly from the first round to as low as a third-round selection
DE Erasmus James, Wisconsin - Even though James has posted solid workout numbers his game film shows a slow down in the latter stage of the 2004 season, according to one NFL scout. Between the wear down and potential injury concerns, one NFL scout told KFFL he felt James is no longer a lock for the top-20 selections of the draft. LB Matt McCoy, San Diego State - After stellar workouts, McCoy may now be a lock for a first-day pick, per several draft insiders KFFL spoke with.
if thurman fell to us that would be okay with me...he's my third rated MLB...but hey.
