SI.com top 10 NFL draft prospects-photos


Recommended Posts


SI.com now has their top ten prospects online with photos (see link above, I set it to start at Andre Smith)

There are 3 OT on their list, both the Smith's and Monroe. Notice how all 3 OT's have knee braces on both of their knees.

I have always liked Monroe the best out of the big 4, but seeing a guy already having to wear 2 braces makes me a little uncomfortable with drafting one of these guys at #13. Anyone else concerned about these big boy's knees?

Most college OL guys have braces on their knees. It's more preventative than any injuries.

I don't have the details on the individual linemen if they have knee problems, but just because they have them in the pictures isn't a concern.

"In 2004, 24 of the top 25 ranked NCAA Div. I football teams mandated the use of knee braces to avoid injury."

going by the other thread and news about Andre Smith's work ethic, it seems that Monroe and Jason Smith will be the first 2 to go.

Andre Smith is apparently the 2nd best athlete behind Oher of the big 4 and will probably be 3rd. I dunno, but since Monroe and Jason Smith will probably be gone, I think I'd want Oher. I think Buges will get all that he can out of him.
