Thursday

#22 Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech, the lower ranked team in this battle, actually may have more first day prospects. Safety James Butler is a good prospect who might go in the first three rounds, along with running back PJ Daniels, although Daniels has another year of eligibility left. Junior defensive end Eric Henderson has a lot of talent and could be a first or second round prospect if he leaves school early. Offensive guard Leon Robinson and tackle Kyle Wallace are second day prospects.

Virginia Tech has a lot of second day prospects, but only corner Jimmy Williams, a junior, is considered to be a first day prospect at this time. On offense, quarterback Bryan Randall could get drafted, along with OT Jon Dunn. Defensively the Hokies have some fair prospects in defensive end Jim Davis, linebacker Brandon Manning, tackle Kevin Lewis, and safety James Griffin. Punter Vinnie Burns also has an outside shot at being drafted late.

Friday

Hawaii at #15 Boise State

Hawaii is one of those teams tough to figure because of the run and shoot offense. QB Timmy Chang puts up big numbers, but is probably more of a second day pick, as is WR Chad Owens and OG Uriah Moenoa. Defensively, cornerback Abraham Elimimian and defensive tackle Lui Fuga could be drafted in the mid to late rounds.

Boise State, ranked #15 based on their undefeated record and solid team play has no great prospects for the draft. Linebacker Andy Avalos, cornerback Gabe Franklin and defensive end Julius Roberts are all potential draftees, but not special players. K Tyler Jones has some talent and may find his way into a training camp next fall.
