    <img width="173" height="271" align="left" alt="Marcus McNeil" title="Marcus McNeil" src="http://photos.signonsandiego.com/gallery1.5/albums/album121/2006_20060511_ASMT256723_UTI0924143.jpg" />After one of the most prestigious careers an Auburn lineman has ever had, left tackle Marcus McNeill was all but a lock for the first round of the 2006 NFL draft. McNeill went 43 straight games at Auburn without allowing a sack, and additionally led the way for two former first-round picks out of Auburn; Ronnie Brown (Miami) and Carnell Williams (Tampa Bay). Entering draft day, most scouts had him projected as the third best overall offensive tackle. Much to McNeill's disappointment he was overlooked during the first round and amazingly slipped all the way to San Diego in the second round with the 50th overall selection.

    So why did McNeill fall so far? Tons of talent, a stellar track record, and the size (6'7", 337 lbs.) to have instant success in the NFL: How could you go wrong drafting this kid?</blockquote>
