    A closer look at '09 draft prospects

    Every draft prospect has a story. Here's an inside look at several NFL hopefuls.

    Interesting material.
    After watching most of the vids...I'm intrigued most by Michael Oher and Alphonso Smith.
    Oher due to his mental and physical toughness.
    Smith due to his seemingly magnetic personality and dynamic playmaking ability.


    Either one one look good in purple IMO.
    Like the kid from Connecticut too.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    Don't be nervous Phonso, your name will be called soon and I hope it is with the purple.

    I've never once thought "darn, Winfield is just too short," I have a feeling Alphonso Smith will be the same way.

    Although my draftboard would have Oher, Smith and maybe even Britton ahead of Alphonse, just because I think tackle is slightly more of a need.

    Nice Link, I'm really liking Alphonso Smith, he's undoubtably my #1 corner, he's flat out a football player. I would love to add him to Tyrell Johnson and Cedric Griffin, previous draft selections.

    Another guy that is growing on me is Percy Harvin. When I watched this kids highlights I was really impressed with his open field running ability. I think they used him a little different just to get the ball in his hands. As a WR I think he will be fine, he has a 4o time that easily translates to football speed, a 37' verticle and benched 225, 20 times. I'm impressed with him, from what I saw in his interview I also liked that. Because he hasn't returned punts and kicks in college does not mean he's not going to be able to do it in the pros. We need players like Harvin to add to our offense and specail teams.

    We need playmakers period. Alphonso Smith and Percy Harvin both fit the bill. Even Hey-Ward is a dangerous football player, a guy that has to be accounted for on every play. I thought it was intristing he started fooball at 16, unlike most players who begin very early. This kid has a high ceiling.
