    Wow,did the Georgia - Boise State game this weekend and Nate Potter is the real deal.

    Very strong at the POA and did an excellent job in Pass Protection. Georgia struggled to bull rush him and struggled to speed rush him.

    I know we do not need an OT unless we part ways with Light after the season, but this kid can play.

    Totally agree. What's the highest a Boise State player has ever been drafted?

    I know OL Daryn Colledge was taken in the mid 2nd a few years ago (because I really wanted him for the Pats). I usually like their OLinemen.

    WR Titus Young was taken mid 2nd this year.

    Although I'm not positive those guys were the highest taken ever. Next draft it won't surprise me if their QB, Kellen Moore, sneaks into the 1st round.

    I was impressed by Moore. He panicked when under pressure, but when he sets his feet and has time to read the defense, he is money.

    And I almost forgot CB Kyle Wilson, taken in the 1st by the Jets in 2010.

    Good eye, Ochmed, but unless Marcus Cannon doesn't work out, I think we'll go strictly OC. As far as C's go, everybody knows I'm a Brewster fan. Who have you got on your radar?

    Next year even if we pick up our C of the future, if Koppen decides he doesn't want to stick around as a backup, does anybody out there know of any small school C/Gs who would be an improvement over Connolly, Wendell or Ohrenberger? (Before somebody writes in and says that would be anybody, I already thought of that!) This year's crop of Cs was probably the worst I could remember. This coming year has to be better.

    Did you watch Potter at all last year? I'd love to know if you think he improved his game. I was very unimpressed last season. I thought he had a lot of work to do to become a top prospect, but I haven't had a chance to check out that last game yet.

    Clady was drafted #12 overall by Denver in 2008. He was a monster from the word Go but has regressed lately. I am not sure if it is injuries or just the overall suckage of the Broncos.

    He was an All-Pro in 2008 & 2009 and then tore his patella tendon prior to the 2010 season. I think he is also considered a better fit for a zone blocking scheme and Josh McDaniels went away from that when he became the Broncos' HC in 2009.

    I saw only one Boise State game last year and really did not watch Potter all that closely. I know he is ranked very high by most draftniks,so he must have done very well last year.

    Yeah, he was highly ranked last year too. I just didn't see it. Then again, I gave zero offensive linemen a 1st round grade last year and I think 8 went in round one lol.

    I had Costanza as a first round grade and had us taking him in the first in my mock.

    If you get a chance check out OT Martin of Stanford. He is my highest rated O lineman for this year's draft.

    What's his height and weight. Does he play LT or RT? Can he play guard?
    ..I downloaded the UGA Boise game btw.

    LOT #73 I think. Looks to be 6'4" and about 320.

    Quick feet and a knee bender.
