    Here's the stats I like, 68% completions, 43 TDs/1 INT!!
    Now that's a nice ratio!
    I like that site. Great stuff on there.

    Your right, Johnson continues to climb the boards were guys like Booty seem to be dropping.
    That Ainge kid is also a intriguing possibility as well.

    I hate Eric Ainge, i think he has no upside at all..

    Josh Johnson has dominated the "minor leagues".. But he plays very low level football against teams like UC Davis and Valpo... However in 41 games, 113 TDs and 15 interceptions in a pretty nice ratio.. He also has 19 running TDs

    What don't you like about Ainge?
    I like his size, stats and the fact that he played hurt.
    Seems to be a perfect fit (with some coaching) for the offense we run.

    I dont like his release of the ball.. He gets an amazing amount of balls tipped because he throws the ball too low, i also think that if he had any upside, he would have developed much more under Coach Fulmer at TENN.

    For me he is nothing spectacular.. But a so-so kind of quarterback.. He projects to me as a backup quarterback in the NFL, not a starter that have the chance to take you to the next level.

    With that said, he will proberly turn into Tom Brady like and win 3 superbowls or something like that.

    I've never seen him play so I didn't know about the release issue and we all know what the Chiller thinks of releases like that.

    Re: 2008 NFL Draft Sleepers

    I know no onw cares but I say take a chance on Tommy Blake
    http://gofrogs.cstv.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/blake_tommy01.html

    Was thought to be the next coming on Dwight Freeny but also played the run.
    Had a mental break down which has moved him from a top 5 pick to a 5th rounder.
    WHy not take the gamble if he is there around round 5 for a chance to get the # 1 rated pass rusher at the begining of the season.

    He Pro Day and Combine results aren't that great looking because he is fighting o get down to his playing weight of 255 - 265. By training camp
    he will be back to tip top form.

    In 3 weeks he went from 287 to 278

    You got a kid or found a link that you think has some interesting prospects that guys like me have never heard of.

    Here are a few links I frequent as I mine for the nuggets of this draft (Marrdro waits for Z's obvious post that has no football value at all
    ;D)

    http://www.nfldraftdog.com/2008_nfl_..._nfl_draft.htm

    http://www.draftseason.com/Underrated

    Tony Brinkhaus : Center : Minnesota : Ht: 6'3 Weight: 295 lbs.
    Brinkhaus is the anchor on the Gophers offensive line. Will be very attractive to NFL scouts as a athletic center. Is able to play any position on the offensive line. Plays with a lot of aggression and has quite the mean streak. One of the best offensive lineman in the Big Ten.
    This is funny Marrdro, because a draft nut buddy of mine at work was just talking about Brinkhaus the other day and saying that he could be a very good NFL lineman at Center or elsewhere. I would love to see us look to upgrade our line in rounds 2-5 so that we can get some quality there to help with pass protection.

    Re: 2008 NFL Draft Sleepers

    Here is another big QB with decent mobility from a small college, Ryan O'Hara:

    http://walterfootball.com/draft2008QB.php

    Ryan O'Hara, Central Oklahoma
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 235.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.69.
    Projected Round: 5-6.
    Ryan O'Hara is one of the true sleepers in this draft. He has the prototypical size of an NFL quarterback and great mobility to complement his build. Unlike Colt Brennan, he can make all of the throws. Level of competition is obviously an issue, but keep in mind that Arizona recruited him, so obviously someone saw him as a Division I-caliber talent.

    Very interesting.
    I kindof discounted him (you know I am looking at LDE's) cause my book has him at 252lbs and it said he was in the hospital most of last year with some unknown illness.

    You know anything about that?
