    For those who follow college football...

    What do you know about Florida's DE Derrick Harvey. Looks like he has the size to play as a LB in BB's defense (6'5", 250). He declared for the draft (foregoing his senior year) last night and was told that he is projected as a 1st rounder.

    Harvey was a beast in last year's national championship game. This year I think he has had the bullseye on him from day 1 by opposign teams.
    Most scouts think he is a better prospect than Moss was last year and Moss went #16 or #17 in the draft.
    I watched him in the Vandy - Florida game earlier this year and he is fast. I'm thinking he runs in the mid 4.5's. On one play in particular he went up against Vandy's OT Chris Williams, I think, and Williams tooled him. But on the next play he came right back and made a play in the Vandy backfield. He shows more heart rushing the passer than playing the run. I did not see him on special teams.

    PS: Vandy OT's Williams and Stamper are both pretty good and both be in the NFL next season. Williams is the better of the two and could probably beat out O'Callaghan as the third OT for us next season.
