    Overrated/Underrated

    I'm pretty sure this was posted a while back, but I think it has more relevance now that the Senior Bowl is over. Who do you think is overrated and underrated among the draft prospects? My picks:
    Underrated
    Jerome Harrison, RB Washington State- At first I thought he was too small, but Harrison really good in the Senior Bowl
    Charles Spencer, OL Pitt- Succeeded against many of the nation's premier lineman in the Senior Bowl

    Overrated
    Elvis Dumervil, DE Louisville- This guy lead the NCAA in sacks?
    Derek Hagan, WR Arizona State- Dropped too many balls in the Senior Bowl

    NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY

    They were overrated. They've since dropped down the charts.

    Overrated

    Vince Young
    Haloti Ngata
    Barrick Nealy - he absolutely sucks, not a "sleeper"
    Derek Hagan - was overrated, now falling into place
    Eric Winston - see above
    Andrew Whitworth
    Greg Eslinger - those that think he can play in any system
    DeAngelo Williams - somewhat overrated
    Jay Cutler - see above


    My underrated list is shorter, I'll do it later.

    Man do I agree with you on Whitworth, he is horrible...when not jumping offsides or holding he is chasing the guy that just whipped his butt....

    All a matter of opinion. Top 10 as an athlete? No doubt. But as a QB, no way imo.

    I don't think you watched much Vince Young last year.

    Vince Young's passing numbers...

    Comp % - 65.2 Yards - 3036 YPA - 9.3(!) TDs - 26 INTs - 10 Rating - 163.9

    The 1000 yards rushing and 12 rushing TDs are just a bonus.

    For comparison:

    Cutler:

    Comp % - 59.1 Yards - 3073 YPA - 6.65 TDs 21 INTs 9 Rating - 126.07

    Every thread where there is someone who mistakenly states that Vince Young is a runner, not a passer.

    So, if leading the nation in passing wasn't good enough for you, what is? Being an moderately accurate white guy from a terrible football school?

    Here we go with the Vince bashing again. On a 'completely unrelated topic' did anyone see Donovan McNabb talking today about the poor conception of black quarterbacks? Hmm.

    Is it 3am yet?
