Re: Bowl games & players to watch

I'd just like to point out that the guy I've been clamoring for the past few months, Kansas DB Aqib Talib, just returned an INT 60 yards for a TD to give John Riggins' Jayhawks a 7-0 Orange Bowl lead.

Re: Bowl games & players to watch

The Gator/Wolverine game produced a couple of fast guys and a couple of ahemmm beef-eaters and space-takers. But names escape me due to A G E!

If anyone is watching my Hokies take on Kansas tonight, there are a no. of pro prospects. VT has 10 seniors that are likely to be drafted, plus a few underclassmen that might come out. Kansas has a top corner, Talib I think is his name. He is likely a 1st round pick. Kansas throws the ball a lot but I'm not sure if any of their wr's are big prospects.

Players on VT we might be interested in are:

Chris Ellis, DE - he was on Kiper's big board last I checked. A solid pass rusher, but only 260 lbs. or so.
All 4 WR's - none of these guys is likely to go higher than 3rd round, but the guy I like is Josh Morgan, 6'1 ,220. Has great hands, size & YAC ability. Lacks deep speed.
Both cb's - Flowers & Harris. Both are juniors, yet to declare.
Xavier Adibi - OLB. He's a lot like Rocky in size and ability.
Duane Brown - LT. Could go as high as 2nd round
Both DT's - Booker & Powell. Neither will go high, would be good late round picks.
Adibi is a great player with a great attitude. He and Vince Hall both should do well at the next level.

Talib would be a nice pick, he can play man to man & can return punts (which I would like to see someone other than ARE do, let him stick to wr).

He did get beat by Josh Morgan on a fly, but Morgan dropped a perfect pass. Even then, Talib got within a hair of the ball.

I see him as the heir apparent to Shawn Springs (who I think will be here another year).

While VT TOTALLY crapped the bed, I was throughly impressed by Talib.
