    Not a very smart move IMHO.
    He broke his leg this year and didn't play very much.
    If he gets drafted this year, it will be very late in the draft because teams aren't going to take a risk on someone who is still rehabbing his broken leg.

    He should have played one more season in college, and then entered the draft healthy.

    Which is why we scoop him up in the third or fourth round...Bush is gonna be a stud eventually...and a broken leg is a much less serious injury than knee trouble.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    I say he gets picked late 2nd early 3rd round or maybe even 4th round

    theres no way this guy is taken "very late in the draft". if willis mcgahee was taken in the FIRST ROUND after a very serious knee injury, then bush (a player regarded by many as one of the best RB's in college football at the start of the year and a potential heisman winner) will absolutely be taken in the 2nd-3rd rounds at the absolute latest.

    just to serve as comparison, antonio cromartie was taken 19th overall last year by san diego and basically was just drafted b/c of his potential, speed, and size w/ little attention paid to coverage ability or talent as a cornerback. the comparison may be a stretch b/c cromartie wasn't injured, but a guy taken that high based on potential alone means a guy like bush, who plays an even more important position and has even more upside will certainly be highly regarded in this spring's draft. i wouldn't be shocked at all if someone took a shot at him in the first round.

    How do ya like them apples?!

    Bush is no McGahee though, and even McGahee was was a HUGE risk in the draft.
    Bush will be a good RB, but he is still showing effects from a broken leg 4 months ago.

    Bush told reporters last month that his rehabilitation was going well, though he continues to walk with a slight limp and has yet to begin running
    While "very late in the draft" may be a bit pessimistic, I would be surprised if he going before the late third.
    I think if he finished his senior season he would be a first rounder without question.

    The Vikings will draft him in the second round after trading their 2nd and 5th round pick to move up to get him. ;D

    Re: Louisville RB Michael Bush goes Pro

    Does anyone know if this has to do with the fact that Bush applied for a medical redshirt this season and didn't get it? I can see him being drafted.. But I have no clue as to when. If he rehabs well and puts up good numbers at the Combine he will rocket up draft boards.
