start with alex smith:

seems like a great guy:

What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?

Smith: I like to be with my family and friends. I'm also a competitive guy, so I like skiing, snowboarding, bowling and golf. I like going to movies, too. I just saw Million Dollar Baby, which was good but depressing.

8. Finish this sentence: The first thing I will buy after signing an NFL contract will be ...

Smith: I will pay off my family's debt. My brother's student loans, my parents' debt, everything.
I'd do the same..but is he really that smart?

What was the turning point of the Revolutionary War?

Smith: (laughs) I would have to say ... hmm, that was obviously ... uh, I have no idea.
Now Terry is pretty smart:
Explain the Pythagorean Theorem.

Terry: Oh, my high school teacher is going to kill me. The only thing I'm gathering is A-squared plus B-squared equals C-squared. (Editor's note: Terry is correct!)
that brings something to our team (I really like this guy)...

It's 100 years from now. How are people going to remember you?

Terry: They'll know me on the field, but off the field I want to bring a lot to the community and be a household name in that regard. I know I'll be able to influence more than one kid's life, but to have them be successful would make my day. I think I'm doing that for a lot of people where I'm from due to the fact that we haven't really produced a lot of NFL players.
If he could live up to this-he'd be great

Whose throwback jersey do you most want (or already have) in your closet?

Terry: I'm not a jersey kind of guy, I usually wear button-down shirts and khakis, but if I had to wear one I'd get a USC Tony Boselli jersey. I don't think they make those, so it would have to be a special order.
we have an opening, adam;

What other position do you wish you could play?

Terry: Tight end. You still have the offensive lineman mentality but you also get to catch the ball and have a little glory behind you
now moving on:

the man we think the saints will pick:
thomas davis:
If you live up to this you'd be great:
Who were your idols as a child?

Davis: I used to look up to guys like Deion Sanders, Ronnie Lott and Lawrence Taylor. In basketball, it was Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.
good learner-
Name the most important thing you learned in college.

Davis: Never take a play off.
this is kinda weird though:
Do you have any superstitions?

Davis: I never wore any lotion, because it seemed like I played better without it.
what's up with that?
It's 100 years from now. How are people going to remember you?

Davis: As a guy that almost didn't get the opportunity, but definitely made the most of the opportunity when it was presented to him.
I like that-but davis-it's not all about you:
Name a question that you think would stump a fellow 2005 draft prospect.

Davis: How many Division I offers do you think Georgia safety Thomas Davis had coming out of high school?
hmm-thinking about a coernerback heres three-start with a first round contender:
Carlos rogers

If he could live up
Who were your idols as a child?

Rogers: Deion Sanders.
well-he's got the greed thing down:
Finish this sentence: The first thing I will buy after signing an NFL contract will be ...

Rogers: A nice house. And the bigger my signing bonus is, the bigger my house will be.
Pick one: Fame or fortune.

Rogers: Fortune
but oh well..does money make the man? or is he just being honest...moving along he contradicts himself:
It's 100 years from now. How are people going to remember you?

Rogers: As a fine young gentleman, a hard worker and someone who put his team before himself.
or does he-you decide, but while your deciding:

rolle is up and he's alittle more practical;
Finish this sentence: The first thing I will buy after signing an NFL contract will be ...


Antrel Rolle's first purchase will likely involve a realtor.
Rolle: A comfortable place to live in the city where I am drafted.
but definitly not lost the confidence
Finish this sentence: The first thing I will buy after signing an NFL contract will be ...


Antrel Rolle's first purchase will likely involve a realtor.
Rolle: A comfortable place to live in the city where I am drafted.
and to the second round:

marlin jackson
fiesty isn't he
What other position do you wish you could play?

Jackson: I wish I could play linebacker. They're so close to the line and hitting. They're up close and personal, meeting the running backs right when they hit the hole.
now thisis a good answer
It's 100 years from now. How are people going to remember you?

Jackson: As a geniune guy, a guy that got his job done and cared about other people.
based on the above--i'd pick

1. thomas davis
2. marlin jackson
3. adam terry

but I'd pick them there anyway so have fun.
