    I was gonna ask you how it started. I knew of him being a fan of the Big Ten, but he never really stood out until I re-watched the Penn State/Purdue game from this past season. I watched Spencer every snap and he was impressive.

    I live in Big 10 country. So I was able to watch alot of Purdue games. I just like the fact that it seemed he was always doing something positive. Dude I swear everytime I watched he seemed like he made a play. Plus I havn't heard of any character flaws. So thats key also.

    I was impressed most with his ability to chase down run plays to the opposite side of the field, and in short yardage. He makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage.

    I would rather have Spencer over Okoye right now the way it is going.

    I remember the last time we drafted a star from Purdue!

    Some guy by the name of Rod Woodson! Things turned out pretty well for us with that pick!

    How would this be for day 1?

    Round 1 - Anthony Spencer/DE-OLB/Purdue/6'3 261/s.c rank 30
    Round 2 - Justin Blalock/OT/Texas/6'4 329/s.c rank 47
    Round 3 - Michael Bush/RB/Louisville/6'2 250/s.c rank 63

    The only guy that is a stretch out of these 3 is Bush. Our picks in those rounds without moving up or down would be 15/47/79

    Bush missed nearly all of the 2006, suffering a season-ending leg injury in the first game at Kentucky after rushing for 128 yards and three touchdowns in the first half against the Wildcats. During his three plus seasons, Bush has rushed for more than 2,300 yards and 39 touchdowns, averaging 5.7 yards per carry. His 39 career touchdowns rank second in school history!
    Coincidentally the player sitting at the 79th spot is Brian Leonard. I don't know if Leonard is as good a pick anymore because he has lost a lot of weight to show his worth as a tailback and improve his speed. Can't get smaller without a compromise.........power?

    I would be toasting a beer to that lineup. Man, that would be our best draft picks in years since the 70s Dynasty.

    that would be one hell of a day one, but yeah, bush will be long gone by the time we pick in the third........
