NCAA | White 50-50 on turning pro
Sat, 3 Dec 2005 05:41:26 -0800

Phil Collin, of the Daily Breeze, reports USC RB LenDale White has not made up his mind if he will head to the 2006 NFL Draft. "Right now, it's 50-50,'' the junior running back said. "I feel like right now, the task at hand is to win another championship before I leave.'' While White was home in Denver, he and family members formed what he called an "advisory team'' to explore his value if he left USC. White knows, even before he hears it from head coach Pete Carroll, that the road ahead in his decision-making process is fraught with risks.

Michael Bush, Louisville (6'3" 250) Late 2nd to 3rd round.

Gerald Riggs Jr Tennessee (6'0" 220) got hurt this year so we could get him in the late 3rd.

Mike Bell Arizona (6'0" 220) Late 3rd to 4th.


Just some backs we could look at late.

Well, thats good to hear that there is more. I heard a few people saying there wasn't a lot of big backs this year. Glad to hear thats wrong.

Yes koopa they all are worth a dam after the 1st round. Bush has good foot work and has more speed then most big backs. while riggs has avg speed but can push the pile, is compared to jamel lewis (before his injury).Bell i havent watched yet but i hear he has nice speed with power and theres about 3-4 more guys we could get but thses 3 are more our style.

I saw Michael Bush play. I liked what I saw. He might be a good fit here.

cool, as much as i want lendale there might be bigger needs for a first round draft pick, so maybe it would be better to draft one of these backs in the second or third and let him learn behind duce and willie for a year and then start plugging him to get more carries the next following season.

True but what spot would go in the 1st then? for me theres only 2 spots i could see us going in the first for RB and DE. OC always go in the 2nd so a 1st rounder for a C is not even on the coachs minds. But when FA hits things may change so its a guessing game now.

hmmmmm.....i don't know, never mind what i said i kinda meant to say if lendale ain't available then just wait to the third or fourth whenever it's better to draft one of these backs. if lendale is there i think i'd be pretty pissed off if we pass up on him. i'm not to worried about a DE yet we can resign kimo and draft a decent DE late and groom him for a year. i want a back that can take over now. and lendale is that back IMO
