    No particular order.

    Owen Schmitt, FB- A great future prospect for an aging Lorenzo Neal, this guy is a freakin stud.

    Jonathan Stewart, HB- Perfect replacement for Michael Turner, probably a 3rd round guy.

    Tony Hills, RT- Olivea watch your ***!

    James Laurenitis, ILB- BIG potential at ILB.

    Dan Connor, ILB- BEST LINEBACKER IN THE NCAA! TRADE UP PLEASE AJ!

    Frank Okam, NT- Jamal Williams needs a respectable back up, this guy fits a the perfect mold.

    Chevis Jackson, CB- The "It" factor.

    Malcom Jenkins, CB- Athletic freak of nature.

    Kenny Phillips, SS- If he comes out, he'll be the top saftey in the draft.

    Alexis Serna K,- I know hes a kicker, but if Kaeding doesnt get his stuff together.......

    I definetly like Laurenitis and Okam, also like Stewart! But I think a ILB that would be nice for us is Geno Hayes from FSU! That guy flys to the ball and is undersized but is solid off blocks and is great in coverage!

    Okam is J Dub clone.
    If we want to have a good replacement for the key ingredient to our entire defense its time to look now.

    I think we're good at ILB. Dont see why there are ILB's on the list. If anything, we could use OLB's to replace Polk and just for depth.

    As for a FB......i think when Neal goes, that will be it for a FB here if Turner is the HC. He indicated he would use a 1 back set.

    Deffinitely need to replace Olivea at RT and move him to OG.

    Owen Schmitt would be a nice replacement for LoNeal.
    I have no confidence that Pinnock could get the job done.

    Jonathan Stewart will be much higher than a third round pick.

    I agree after last week.
    The thing is scouts like to take points off for running backs that are successfull in an option system like they run in Oregon.

    here are some guys that i like who aren't universally known, I'll list one or two at each position:

    QB-Josh Johnson (35 TD 1 INT)
    RB-Matt Forte, Calvin Dawson (both can play in the NFL)
    FB-Jehuu Caulcrick (nice runner)
    WR-Eddie Royal (return skills)
    TE-Jacob Tamme (more of an H-back)
    OT-John Greco (Toledo has produced o-linemen)
    OG-Andrew Crummey, Ryan Poles (both injured right now)
    C-Mike Pollak, Kory Lichtensteiger (rock solid up the middle)

    DE-Titus Brown, Jeremy Thompson (both can play OLB)
    DT-Eric Foster, James McClinton, Nick Hayden, Leger Douzable
    OLB-Jeremy Jones, Jordon Dizon
    ILB-Jo-Lonn Dunbar, Beau Bell
    CB-Leodis McKelvin (dynamite return ability too)
    FS-Bobbie Williams, Ron Girault
    SS-Jamie Silva

    K-Alexis Serna
    P-Johnnie Ayers
