I counted 6 that are pretty much guaranteed 1st rounders. Odd -- all six of the sophomores are from NC State or South Carolina (and no juniors at all from SC). I think they'll probably fall to day two.

Did you know that USC is such an elite school that there average student had a 4.0 in high school and scored in the 1500 range on their SAT's. Check out there website if you think I'm full of it. Those numbers have never applied to the athletic department and given some of the bone-headed plays I saw at the Rose Bowl those underclassmen should declare for the draft now because the diploma ole Coach Pete promised ain't going to happen.

Bone headed plays?? just reggie on the lateral man. You can't judge his 3yrs there on 1 play. "The numbers never applied to the athletic department" this is what goes down at ALL schools, to say that it doesn't at a particular school is pretty dumb. I mean when was the last time 90,000 people showed up for a science experiment or some other crap. It's all about the BENJAMINS thatch. Whether people like it or not it will always go on.

Chuy: I know it's about the money man, and Reggie's lateral brought tears to my eyesbut you have to admit that this chain reaction thing about leaving early is a stupid move for most of these guys. And you really do have to check out USC's website makes a big deal about test scores and such what they fail to mention is if Daddy is an alum and can pay full tuition your in. I just hate to see SC lose so many guys to free agency but at least Texas is as well.

Not a noteworthy link. It's simply a list you're using to start a discussion. Deleted.
