    No "Eli's" in this year's draft

    I'm glad to see that none of the top college players in this year's draft have outright refused to play for any particular team if drafted by them (like Eli Manning did with SD). I would imagine that this could be a temptation for Bush, since he is so highly sought after, and Houston is so lowly. Glad to see that the best players in the Class of 2005 are not Class-less.

    Don't be so quick....they may not have said so early like Eli, but it could happen.

    It could happen, but it doesn't look like there are any indications it will. Nothing worse than some cry baby stomping his feet and disrupting the draft by making demands. Luckily, it's a rare occurance.

    I read somewhere that Mario Williams actually seemed to be more interested in playing for New Orleans than working out contract negotiations with the Texans. I thought it was really nice to see someone showing enthusiasm about going to Louisiana under the circumstances.

    Maybe he wants to be the face of a rebuilding New Orleans.
