    Either this is just "talk" or teams could be really turned off by S Reggie Nelson. They seem to really be concerned over his "intelligence" and ability to digest the playbook. Take Chad Jackson last year, he was a projected to be picked in the first round, yet was taken in the early second. Maybe the Pats won't draft Nelson after all. We will only find out next Saturday. Anyways, check out the article.

    I'm not sure that BB and SP take this stuff overly seriously when it comes to certain schools. They have coaches whom they trust at Fresno, Florida, ND, and Alabama (next year).

    If BB likes a kid from UF, I'm sure he and the staff will look beyond the history of the school's drafted players and use their eyes and ears to determine if the player fits the system.

    Rather remarkable that Florida's defense was as good as it was considering Nelson's an imbicile, Siler's stiff, Smith and Lewis are slow, Moss can't play the run, and Earl Everett just stinks.
