Football's Palace Guards
Football truism: Offensive linemen who are not knees benders nor do not show good contact balance have virtually any chance of being successful players at the professional level. I really like Andrew Woodruff of Boise State's versatility, experience and toughness. He's a big man with who was particularly effective in a limited area. Keep your eyes trained on C.J. Davis of the University of Pittsburgh, Dennis Conley from Hampton, Mike Huff from the Cornhuskers of Nebraska and Rice Owl David Berkin, four individuals who have a real chance. I really like their chances of developing at the very least into solid back up players at the professional level. Possible sleeper in this grouping include Mike Iupati from the University of Idaho, a player who has improved a great deal in the past couple of years. Jake Figner of the University of West Virginia is one of those players whose numbers don't come close to matching his on the field playing performance.
