    A couple of more "mock drafts" for those interested

    http://www.fanball.com/fb/article.cfm/ID.5922

    1. Houston Texans
    Reggie Bush, RB, USC
    Our Last Mock: Bush
    What's Changed: The Texans have worked out Mario Williams and Vince Young; can you say, "smokescreen?" Expect Houston's front office to open York Jenegotiations with Bush soon, if they haven't done so already.
    Also Considered: Mario Williams, Vince Young
    Trade Possibilities: Unless Mike Ditka takes over a team and makes another Ricky Williams type of offer, Houston is holding onto this pick.

    2. New Orleans Saints
    D'Brickashaw Ferguson, T, Virginia
    Our Last Mock: Mario Williams
    What's Changed: The Saints traded starting offensive tackle Wayne Gandy to the Falcons last week, which seems to open the door for Ferguson. Keep in mind the Saints lost starting center LeCharles Bentley and cut a starting guard during the offseason. In other words, they have major offensive line needs.
    Also Considered: Williams
    Trade Possibilities: Trading down to a team that covets Matt Leinart is always a possibility. Swapping with the Jets would make the most sense, as they could still get Ferguson with the fourth pick.

    3. Tennessee Titans
    Matt Leinart, QB, USC
    Our Last Mock: Vince Young
    What's Changed: The Titans are split between Leinart and Young; OC Norm Chow prefers the former Trojan, while Bud Adams would love to relocate yet another football icon from Houston. If both are on the board, it comes down to whether or not Adams can be overruled by his football people. Right now we're projecting GM Floyd Reese and head coach Jeff Fisher cast their votes for Leinart—and that Adams doesn't wield veto power.
    Also Considered: Young
    Trade Possibilities: The Titans could conceivably move down a spot or two, especially if both quarterbacks they like are still on the board or if they're comfortable with Jay Cutler.

    4. New York Jets
    Mario Williams, DE, North Carolina State
    Our Last Mock: Matt Leinart
    What's Changed: If the Jets can't swing a deal with the Titans to move up and grab Leinart, they'll settle for the most impressive defensive prospect in the draft. The Julius Peppers clone will provide them with the pass-rushing force they lost when John Abraham left town.
    Also Considered: A.J. Hawk, Vince Young
    Trade Possibilities: The Jets may ship this pick and another to the Titans in order to move up to the second slot and get Leinart.

    5. Green Bay Packers
    A.J. Hawk, LB, Ohio State
    Our Last Mock: Hawk
    What's Changed: Hawk has remained a fixture at this spot because he fills a great need for the Packers and is clearly the best defensive player remaining. He and Nick Barnett could quickly turn into one of the best young linebacking tandems in the league.
    Also Considered: Michael Huff, Brodrick Bunkley
    Trade Possibilities: The Packers are always open to the possibility of moving around and acquiring additional picks.

    6. San Francisco 49ers
    Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland
    Our Last Mock: Davis
    What's Changed: Not much, although there are rumors that the Broncos are interested in trading up to acquire Davis. A team such as the Vikings might also be interested in trading up to acquire one of the big three quarterbacks.
    Also Considered: Michael Huff, Jimmy Williams
    Trade Possibilities: See above.

    7. Oakland Raiders
    Brodrick Bunkley, DT, Florida State
    Our Last Mock: Bunkley
    What's Changed: Nothing. Vince Young is a candidate with this pick, but team officials are said to be high on second-year signal caller Andrew Walter.
    Also Considered: Haloti Ngata, Michael Huff, Vince Young
    Trade Possibilities: None

    8. Buffalo Bills
    Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
    Our Last Mock: Ferguson
    What's Changed: Ferguson failed to fall far in this mock, leaving the Bills with Ngata. That's not a bad thing, however, because the big fella is the best fit at nose tackle for Buffalo's 3-4 defensive scheme.
    Also Considered: Michael Huff
    Trade Possibilities: None

    9. Detroit Lions
    Michael Huff, S, Texas
    Our Last Mock: Huff
    What's Changed: Nothing at all. Huff is the premier defensive back on the board and would immediately upgrade the Lions defense.
    Also Considered: Vince Young, Jimmy Williams
    Trade Possibilities: None

    10. Arizona Cardinals
    Vince Young, QB, Texas
    Our Last Mock: Winston Justice
    What's Changed: Young dropped, causing the Cards to ignore their offensive line needs. Vince's rushing ability has drawn comparisons to Daunte Culpepper, whom head coach Denny Green is quite familiar with.
    Also Considered: Justice, Ernie Sims, Jay Cutler
    Trade Possibilities: There is speculation that Green doesn't plan on coaching long enough to develop a young quarterback, so he might trade this pick to a team that covets Young.

    11. St. Louis Rams
    Jimmy Williams, CB, Virginia Tech
    Our Last Mock: Jay Cutler
    What's Changed: Only two teams surrendered more passing scores than the Rams last year. Cutler might be tempting, but it will be hard for new head coach Scott Linehan to justify such a pick if he has any faith in Marc Bulger.
    Also Considered: Ashton Youboty, Jimmy Williams
    Trade Possibilities: Williams might be available later, so the Rams could trade this pick to a team that wants Cutler.

    12. Cleveland Browns
    Kamerion Wimbley, DE, Florida State
    Our Last Mock: Wimbley
    What's Changed: Not much. The Browns will go defense, and if one of the big tackles (Bunkley or Ngata) slide this far they'll certainly give them consideration. However, Wimbley is a perfect fit for their 3-4, and his Cleveland visit went well.
    Also Considered: Ernie Sims, Donte Whitner
    Trade Possibilities: None

    13. Baltimore Ravens
    Winston Justice, T, USC
    Our Last Mock: Ngata
    What's Changed: Ngata moved up and Bunkley didn't fall, leaving the Ravens to address needs on their offensive rather than defensive line. Justice has climbed in the rankings thanks to his stellar Pro Day workout, and he can play the right side until Jonathan Ogden calls it quits.
    Also Considered: Whitner, Jay Cutler
    Trade Possibilities: The Ravens could still be in the market for a quarterback and could trade up or down depending on where Cutler falls.

    14. Philadelphia Eagles
    Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
    Our Last Mock: Ernie Sims
    What's Changed: Trying to get inside Andy Reid's head is tougher than reading the expression on Paul Walker's face, but he does lean towards the offensive side of the football. The Eagles need receiving help, and with Jackson still sitting here it may be tough for Philly to go defense.
    Also Considered: Sims, LenDale White
    Trade Possibilities: If the Broncos get aggressive about grabbing Jackson and the Eagles feel they can wait on a receiver, there may be some play at this spot. They could also trade down and capitalize on White's sliding stock.

    15. Denver Broncos (from Atlanta Falcons)
    Donte Whitner, S, Ohio State
    Our Last Mock: Jackson
    What's Changed: Jackson got nabbed by Eagles one pick before the Broncos could get him, so they went with Whitner, who has seen his stock rise in recent weeks. He's now considered one of the best defensive backs in this year's draft class and will play safety for the Broncos.
    Also Considered: Jay Cutler, Santonio Holmes, Jason Allen
    Trade Possibilities: The Broncos have a pair of first-rounders and are rumored to be considering a trade with the 49ers so they can be in position to acquire Vernon Davis.

    16. Miami Dolphins
    Ernie Sims, LB, Florida State
    Our Last Mock: Donte Whitner
    What's Changed: Whitner didn't make it to No. 16 in this mock, forcing the Dolphins to address a different defensive need. The Fins could use some talented youth at outside linebacker and Sims will be able to effectively rush the quarterback if called upon to do so.
    Also Considered: Chad Greenway
    Trade Possibilities: None

    17. Minnesota Vikings
    Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
    Our Last Mock: Chad Greenway
    What's Changed: Brad Johnson is a year older than Brett Favre. Granted, B.J. has indicated that he wants to play at least three more seasons whereas old age has apparently destroyed Brett's decision making ability, but there's no telling how effective Johnson will be at his age.
    Also Considered: Greenway, Tye Hill
    Trade Possibilities: The Vikings have talked with the Falcons about a trade for backup quarterback Matt Schaub. The Falcons are seeking a first-round pick in return, but the Purple apparently feel that the No. 17 pick is too much to part with.

    18. Dallas Cowboys
    Chad Greenway, LB, Iowa
    Our Last Mock: Bobby Carpenter
    What's Changed: Same position, same conference, but rather than reach a bit for Carpenter the Cowboys capitalize on Greenway's fluctuating stock.
    Also Considered: Carpenter, Jason Allen
    Trade Possibilities: None

    19. San Diego Chargers
    Santonio Holmes, WR, Ohio State
    Our Last Mock: Jimmy Williams
    What's Changed: Keenan McCardell isn't getting any younger and Reche Caldwell left town, so Holmes would fill a glaring need.
    Also Considered: Jason Allen
    Trade Possibilities: None

    20. Kansas City Chiefs
    Jason Allen, CB, Tennessee
    Our Last Mock: Ashton Youboty
    What's Changed: The Chiefs are still in the market for a cornerback. Allen's stock appears to be on the rise. If nothing else, he's passed Youboty.
    Trade Possibilities: None

    21. New England Patriots
    Tye Hill, CB, Clemson
    Our Last Mock: DeAngelo Williams
    What's Changed: Both running backs and cornerbacks will be available in bulk during the first round this year, so the Patriots will have their choice at either position. Hill is a speedster who can also return kicks, so he is a better fit right for the Pats right now than Williams.
    Also Considered: DeAngelo Williams, Antonio Cromartie,
    Trade Possibilities: The Patriots aren't afraid to travel around the draft board if someone they like is available, so there may be some movement with this pick.

    22. Denver Broncos (from Washington Redskins)
    Laurence Maroney, RB, Minnesota
    Our Last Mock: Tamba Hali
    What's Changed: The Broncos went defense with the first pick this round, so it is time to get some offensive help. The Broncos don't think Tatum Bell can handle a full load in the backfield and Ron Dayne has proven he can't, making Maroney, who thrived in a zone-blocking system during college, a good fit.
    Also Considered: Hali, D'Angelo Williams
    Trade Possibilities: This pick may be involved in a deal to move up to the top of the round and select Vernon Davis.

    23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Marcus McNeill, T, Auburn
    Our Last Mock: McNeill
    What's Changed: Nothing. The Bucs still have major offensive line issues and will likely take the best lineman available. They also had offensive tackle Winston Justice at team headquarters earlier this week, so they might be interested in trading up.
    Also Considered: Nick Mangold
    Trade Possibilities: The Bucs could also trade down if they buy into the rumors that McNeill's stock is falling.

    24. Cincinnati Bengals
    Marcedes Lewis, TE, UCLA
    Our Last Mock: Leonard Pope
    What's Changed: The Bengals could still very well go with defensive help here, especially if they're comfortable with one of the tight ends that might still be on the board in the second round. Lewis and Pope both offer upside, but Marcedes seems to be a better fit with the Bengals' offense.
    Also Considered: Pope, Antonio Cromartie
    Trade Possibilities: None

    25. New York Giants
    Antonio Cromartie, CB, Florida State
    Our Last Mock: Holmes
    What's Changed: Holmes isn't available, and the next best receiver on the board doesn't warrant a pick here. The Giants need secondary help as well, and after Cromartie proved he's healthy and still really fast the G-Men will be lucky if he slips this far.
    Also Considered: Ashton Youboty, Bobby Carpenter
    Trade Possibilities: None

    26. Chicago Bears
    Ashton Youboty, CB, Ohio State
    Our Last Mock: Cromartie
    What's Changed: The name is different because the Giants grabbed Cromartie with the previous pick, but the Bears are still looking to add some depth at cornerback. They'll address their issue at tight end later in the draft.
    Also Considered: Leonard Pope
    Trade Possibilities: None

    27. Carolina Panthers
    LenDale White, USC, RB
    Our Last Mock: DeMeco Ryans
    What's Changed: White's stock has dropped due to his lousy attitude at USC's pro day. However, the Panthers were among the teams that managed to sneak in a visit in between LenDale's multiple visits to Old Country Buffet. Remember, Stephen Davis won't be back in Carolina, and the team needs a durable short-yardage option.
    Also Considered: Nick Mangold
    Trade Possibilities: None.

    28. Jacksonville Jaguars
    Bobby Carpenter, LB, Ohio State
    Our Last Mock: Thomas Howard
    What's Changed: Carpenter has a clean bill of health, but he could still be hanging around at the end of the first round when the Jags go on the clock. And we hear Jack Del Rio likes linebackers. There's also a chance the Jags try to get younger at the skill positions by tabbing D'Angelo Williams to replace Fred Taylor, who isn't making friends by opting to skip voluntary offseason workouts.
    Also Considered: Williams
    Trade Possibilities: None

    29. New York Jets (from Denver Broncos via Atlanta Falcons)
    D'Angelo Williams, RB, Memphis
    Our Last Mock: Nick Mangold
    What's Changed: The Jets selected Williams to be the heir apparent to the aging Curtis Martin because neither Cedric Houston nor Derrick Blaylock has his tantalizing upside. They'll look to upgrade their offensive line in later rounds.
    Also Considered: Joseph Addai, Nick Mangold
    Trade Possibilities: The Jets may move either (or both) of their first-round picks to the Titans so they can grab Matt Leinart.

    30. Indianapolis Colts
    Joseph Addai, RB, LSU
    Our Last Mock: Maroney
    What's Changed: This mock saw the top backs go off the board prior to Indy's pick, leaving them to go to Plan B—the underappreciated Addai.
    Also Considered: Richard Marshall
    Trade Possibilities: If Indy thinks they can get their back lower, they aren't averse to trading down and out of the first round.

    31. Seattle Seahawks
    Richard Marshall, CB, Fresno State
    Our Last Mock: Tye Hill
    What's Changed: Not much. The Seahawks still need a quality No. 2 cornerback or a nickelback to push Kelly Herndon. Hill went earlier, so the Seahawks settle for Marshall, whose stock is on the rise.
    Trade Possibilities: None.

    32. Pittsburgh Steelers
    Nick Mangold, C, Ohio State
    Our Last Mock: Sinorice Moss
    What's Changed: Mangold's on the board this time, and he's a Bill Cowher kind of guy. The Steelers have few, if any, immediate needs so they can invest in a pick that will solidify their line for a decade down the road.
    Also Considered: Moss
    Trade Possibilities: None

    And then this one from Sporting News...


    1 (1) Texans Reggie Bush* RB USC
    GM Charley Casserly says he is open for trade business, but it is unlikely that any team will offer the booty required to get this valuable pick. So, that will leave the Texans to select the most versatile offensive threat in the draft and team him with Domanick Davis.
    2 (2) Saints D'Brickashaw Ferguson T Va.
    The Saints have plenty of options. The most likely would be to trade the pick to a team (Jets and Titans are the most likely) looking to snare Southern Cal quarterback Matt Leinart. If GM Mickey Loomis doesn't make a deal, he will not take NC State DE Mario Williams because he already has two solid pass rushers in Will Smith and Charles Grant. The Saints could, however, solidify an offensive line that has lost center LeCharles Bentley and guard Kendyl Jacox this offseason. New Orleans could pair Ferguson with last year's first-rounder, RT Jamaal Brown, to protect their investment in Drew Brees.
    3 (3) Titans Matt Leinart QB USC
    If Leinart somehow falls to No. 3, don't blink because the Titans' draft card with his name on it already will be at the podium of Radio City Music Hall. There is a rumor that the Titans like Vince Young. Don't believe it. It's just a smokescreen.
    4 (4) Jets Updated Mario Williams* DE NC State
    Williams has the size to play the end in new coach Eric Mangini's 3-4 scheme. Like Belichick, expect Mangini to stockpile ends with the versatility to dominate as a pass rusher and stuff the run.
    5 (5) Packers Haloti Ngata* DT Oregon
    If the Packers can add Ngata to go along with ends Aaron Kampman and Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila and new defensive tackle Ryan Pickett, the team would have the beginnings of a formidable front. Ngata is extremely quick and will create havoc inside.
    6 (6) 49ers A.J. Hawk OLB Ohio St.
    The Niners need to fill the hole left by free-agent defectors Julian Peterson and Andre Carter. Hawk is intense, can rush the passer and has the speed to make plays sideline to sideline. He would be an immediate starter.
    7 (7) Raiders Vince Young* QB Texas
    Everyone in the organization likes OT Winston Justice -- except owner/GM Al Davis. Davis wants Young, and Davis always gets his way. New quarterback Aaron Brooks is signed to a two-year deal, which would give Young time to develop.
    8 (8) Bills Brodrick Bunkley DT Florida St.
    New defensive coordinator Perry Fewell trained under Lovie Smith in St. Louis and Chicago. Fewell is installing the Tampa-2 defense and needs a Warren Sapp-type player for his 4-3 front. Bunkley is quick and athletic and can collapse the pocket.
    9 (9) Lions Michael Huff S Texas
    The Lions need a safety, and Huff is a versatile player who is physical against the run and can cover a lot of ground in deep middle of the secondary.
    10 (10) Cardinals Jay Cutler QB Vandy
    Maryland TE Vernon Davis would be tough to pass up, but our sources say coach Dennis Green is looking for a blocker, not a vertical threat. QB Kurt Warner soon turns 35 and hasn't been healthy enough to play a full season since 2001. Backup Josh McCown left via free agency, and Green needs a strong arm to get the ball to his playmaking wide receivers. Cutler isn't technically sound and isn't the most accurate passer, but he has a big arm and a gunslinger mentality.
    11 (11) Rams Updated Vernon Davis* TE Maryland
    The Rams, unlike the Cardinals, definitely are looking for a two-way tight end with the size and strength to be an in-line blocker and the speed and receiving skills to create matchup problems in the middle of the field. Davis also is the best pure pass catcher in this draft -- better than any wide receiver.
    12 (12) Browns Updated Manny Lawson OLB NC State
    Every NFL team using a 3-4 defensive scheme projects Lawson as a standup outside linebacker, a la Lawrence Taylor. Lawson has outstanding size and speed and can rush the passer; he had 17 sacks the past two seasons. Although Lawson played end in college, he also can drop into coverage. A rare athlete, Lawson is flying up draft boards and could be a key to the Browns' defensive success.
    13 (13) Ravens Winston Justice* T USC
    LT Jonathan Ogden is entering his 11th season. Justice has great size and is very athletic. The Ravens could play him elsewhere in '06 and then plug him at left tackle thereafter.
    14 (14) Eagles Chad Jackson* WR Florida
    WR Reggie Brown, a second-round pick last year, played well down the stretch but lacks Jackson's big-play ability.
    15 (15) Broncos Updated Mathias Kiwanuka DE Boston Coll.
    (from Atlanta) The Broncos' failings in the AFC Championship Game came from their inability to pressure the quarterback. Despite their collection of former Browns along the defensive line, the Broncos lack a dominant pass rusher. Kiwanuka would contribute right away as a wave rusher and eventually displace Courtney Brown or Kenard Lang.
    16 (16) Dolphins Jimmy Williams CB Va. Tech
    Williams is no workout warrior, but he is big and physical. Coach Nick Saban lacks a shutdown cornerback and would love to add Williams' attitude to his improving defense.
    17 (17) Vikings Updated DeMeco Ryans OLB Alabama
    The Vikings signed OLB Ben Leber from the Chargers to play the strong side and need a versatile weakside linebacker to complement him. Ryans is strong against the run, can play in coverage and rush the passer.
    18 (18) Cowboys Updated Kamerion Wimbley OLB Florida St.
    When Bill Parcells coached the Giants, he drafted LB Carl Banks a year after taking Lawrence Taylor. Parcells could repeat the exercise by drafting Wimbley a year after Demarcus Ware. Wimbley is moving up many teams' draft boards, and his speed and versatility would create opportunities for Ware.
    19 (19) Chargers Santonio Holmes* WR Ohio St.
    Keenan McCardell, 36, is the team’s best wide receiver, and Eric Parker is a distant second. Holmes has speed to burn and plenty of big-play ability. He would add a dimension to an already loaded offense. Holmes also is a dangerous return man.
    20 (20) Chiefs Tye Hill CB Clemson
    Most scouts consider Hill to be the best bump-and-run cornerback in the draft. He has good speed and change-of-direction skills and will make plays on the ball.
    21 (21) Patriots Updated Chad Greenway OLB Iowa
    The Patriots need an outside linebacker with speed to rush off the edge and the toughness to make plays against the run. Greenway didn't perform particularly well in pre-draft workouts, but he always is around the ball. He never stops hustling, a key trait for coach Bill Belichick.
    22 (22) Broncos Updated DeAngelo Williams RB Memphis
    (from Washington) People tend to forget that Terrell Davis was 5-10. Williams has a similar build and running style and recently ran the 40-yard dash in 4.44 seconds. Minnesota's Laurence Maroney, who could be considered here, struggled in his pre-draft workout. By drafting Williams, coach Mike Shanahan no longer would be forced to use Ron Dayne as his feature back.
    23 (23) Buccaneers Updated Ernie Sims* OLB Florida St.
    Bucs coaches love Sims' speed and playmaking ability and see him as the next Derrick Brooks. Defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin's scheme doesn't require much size at middle linebacker, so Sims could start there in '06 and slide to the weak side when Brooks, who is entering his 12th season, moves on.
    24 (24) Bengals Nick Mangold C Ohio St.
    Rich Braham, 35, is nearing the end of his career. Mangold could take over quickly as the line-caller to help protect QB Carson Palmer as he returns from a knee injury.
    25 (25) Giants Updated Bobby Carpenter OLB Ohio St.
    The Giants were decimated by injuries at linebacker in '05, exposing their lack of depth. Carpenter is the son of former Giants RB Rob Carpenter and is a smart, instinctive player. He is fully recovered from November’s broken leg. He is tough and loves football -- coach Tom Coughlin's kind of guy.
    26 (26) Bears Antonio Cromartie* CB Florida St.
    With CB Charles Tillman expected to move to safety and CB Jerry Azumah announcing his retirement, the Bears need help. Cromartie is healthy after missing the '05 season with a knee injury, and he has great hands and excellent speed.
    27 (27) Panthers Updated Laurence Maroney* RB Minnesota
    RB DeShaun Foster re-signed but has a long history of injuries, so Maroney would bring needed depth.
    28 (28) Jaguars Updated Thomas Howard OLB UTEP
    Howard is smart, fast and physical, and he would fill a need because Jacksonville lost Akin Ayodele in free agency.
    29 (29) Jets Marcus McNeill T Auburn
    (from Denver) The Jets' offensive line situation is in disarray, and it won't matter who is playing quarterback if they don't fix it. Current starters Adrian Jones and Marko Cavka are undersized and have combined for 16 NFL starts. McNeill is a mountain of a man, and left tackle is his natural position.
    30 (30) Colts Updated LenDale White* RB USC
    White has had a disastrous winter and spring and could fall deep into the second round if the Colts don't take him here. But White is a big, physical runner who also is a viable receiver. Coach Tony Dungy and GM Bill Polian have a good track record of getting solid production from guys with questionable character.
    31 (31) Seahawks Johnathan Joseph* CB S. Carolina
    The Seahawks' one glaring hole is at cornerback opposite Marcus Trufant. Joseph has decent size and blazing speed and makes plays on the ball. He also returns punts and kicks.
    32 (32) Steelers Rodrique Wright DT Texas
    Wright could play end or nose tackle in the Steelers’ 3-4 scheme. The team certainly could use an infusion of youth along its defensive line.

    Re: A couple of more "mock drafts" for those interested

    Vikings brought in Charlie Whitehurst to Winter Park. Anyone know anything about him? From ESPN:

    "EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings had another college quarterback in for a predraft visit. They met with Clemson's Charlie Whitehurst at their Winter Park facility on Wednesday.

    Whitehurst holds 40 school records, including yards passing, completions and touchdown passes. The son of former Green Bay Packers quarterback David Whitehurst, he had minor arthroscopic shoulder surgery about 3½ weeks before the Tigers' win in the Champs Sports Bowl over Colorado.

    The Vikings had Vanderbilt's Jay Cutler, a projected first-round pick, in for a visit Tuesday. Whitehurst is projected by most draft analysts to go in the third round. Coach Brad Childress has said the team is interested in drafting a young quarterback and developing him behind veteran Brad Johnson."

    Interesting statistic but, name one other quarterback playing in the NFL out of Clemson, or one other one that was succesful in the NFL at any time

    Vikings brought in Charlie Whitehurst to Winter Park. Anyone know anything about him? From ESPN:

    "EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings had another college quarterback in for a predraft visit. They met with Clemson's Charlie Whitehurst at their Winter Park facility on Wednesday.

    Whitehurst holds 40 school records, including yards passing, completions and touchdown passes. The son of former Green Bay Packers quarterback David Whitehurst, he had minor arthroscopic shoulder surgery about 3½ weeks before the Tigers' win in the Champs Sports Bowl over Colorado.

    The Vikings had Vanderbilt's Jay Cutler, a projected first-round pick, in for a visit Tuesday. Whitehurst is projected by most draft analysts to go in the third round. Coach Brad Childress has said the team is interested in drafting a young quarterback and developing him behind veteran Brad Johnson."
    Interesting statistic but, name one other quarterback playing in the NFL out of Clemson, or one other one that was succesful in the NFL at any time
    ~ True, thats why I was asking if anyone knew much about him
