    Great post singer.

    If you get a chance, SI has a great article on him as well.

    Plays hard, Plays hurt, Plays for the team.

    Most impressive attribute was when he was advised not to come back and play the bowl game as it might risk his NLF career but he came back anyway.

    Great kid.

    Man I like this pick.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Wow.
    Definitely says a lot about his character when he can deal with those kinds of obstacles and still come out a good person.
    Glad he is in purple!
