More Trojans to the Rescue?

I don't buy the garbage that Dez Bryant is going to fall all the way to Slot #21.  I think some team will grab him in the Top 15.  A failed drug test didn't keep the Vikings from drafting Percy Harvin last year, and there certainly won't be a team afraid of this "agent contact" issue (the Bengals weren't - Andre Smith).


And then there's this:

 04/16/2010 - As the 2010 NFL draft inches closer, the Falcons could be preparing to pull off a major shocker. While most of the buildup to the draft has centered on improving the defense, it might be wise to think out of that defensive box. The Falcons have thoroughly scouted the linebacker and center positions. A lot of mock drafters have the Falcons taking either Missouri linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, Florida center Maurkice Pouncey or Michigan defensive end Brandon Graham. But a shocker pick could be Oklahoma tight end Jermaine Gresham, who was in Flowery Branch on April 8 for a private workout and a meet and greet with the offensive coaches. He did not play last season after having knee surgery, but flashed enough over his career to be compared to Kellen Winslow Sr. by Gil Brandt, the legendary former personnel man of the Dallas Cowboys who's an analyst for NFL.com and Sirius radio. Most of the mock drafts have Gresham going to the Cincinnati Bengals, who have the 21st pick in the draft, two slots behind the Falcons. Last season, the Falcons were frothing over Oklahoma State's tight end Brandon Pettigrew before they made the trade for Tony Gonzalez, who has two years remaining on his contract. If greatness is projected for Gresham, it would make sense for the Falcons to snap him up and let him learn under Gonzalez for a year or two. The draft is deep in defensive talent, and the team could address those concerns later. - D. Orlando Ledbetter, Atlanta Journal Constitution

SO much for Gresham, right?  Not a problem, a few weeks back our boy firstPick put together a TE Prospect Watch which seemed to drum up more interest in Anthony McCoy. 

And then there's this:

Multiple sources are reporting that USC tight end Anthony McCoy tested positive for marijuana at the NFL scouting combine in February.

Can you say............. REDEEMER? Plus, he looks a helluvalot better than the current #86, don't you think?

Many a Bengal fan believe a receiver should be drafted this year....the earlier the better.  While I won't disagree with Mardy Gilyard or Dez Bryant, another USC Trojan with big game experience at wideout is Damian Williams.  He's flashy at both Receiver and Punt Returner.

Joe Reedy, Mr. Speculation, believes that the Bengals will look at the Safety position with their #21 Overall Pick, and I'll have to agree here.  Taylor Mays only smashes a lot of faces in..... which is perfectly okay with me.

I'm all for USC players, hell, the more the merrier.  That system Pete Carroll put together was a draft pick factory for a while there.   For their sake I hope Lane Kiffin keeps things going strong.... we'd like to draft more of their players in the future, of course.

They say you should stick to your initial instinct (well, at least i think i so, yet i still find myself erasing the hell out of scantron forms).

So I'm going back to my original wishlist:

Taylor Mays, Damian Williams and Anthony McCoy.  "Upon further review" (Czeben), The Bengals we're only a couple more USC players away from being a contender last year.  Here they are....
