We are so about to get jobbed in this draft. With Laurinitis and Jenkins probably not declaring the defensive talent will shift upward. Phillips or Ellis may be pipedreams now. Whats worse is the BPA could very well be an offensive player now at the 10 spot. I hope the combine shakes things up alot (we know it will of course).

Like Bonchie said, it looks like Laurinitis is gonna return, but he hasn't made an official decision yet.

http://blog.dispatch.com/buckeyesblog/

"It certainly sounds more and more like James Laurinaitis will come back for his senior season. The fact that Alex Boone -- who has a class with Laurinaitis and talked to him Friday -- said he thinks he will return is the best evidence yet. We'll know in the next 24 hours or so."

If Laurinitis and Jenkins go back to OSU, it's probably because they found out that they would not be picked in the first 15 picks. These guys get information from the NFL about when they will likely be drafted before they make their decisions.

Laurinitis is no A.J. Hawk, Poslunzsky or Patrick Willis. He would be a nice MLB, but not worth a top 10 pick. I think the same is true of Jenkins.

Hopefully a great defensive player falls to us. If not, maybe a great offensive player does or we trade down.

I don't understand that. The guy would be a top 15 pick. This probably will change our off-season strategy.
See Glenn Dorsey. Some people actually want to enjoy college and to win a national championship. It's not always all about the Benjamins. I completely respect that.:worthy:

So, tomorrow's the deadline for underclassmen to declare for the '08 draft?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That's what I thought I read in the article about the Ohio St. players on the SR news page. Maybe there will be a rush of players declaring at the last minute, but if not, there's not a whole lot of big-time Jrs that have already declared. I don't even think McFadden has declared yet... I saw that Felix Jones declared last night.

I bet Laurinaitis decides to stay in school. I'm not sure why he would, but Malcolm Jenkins did and a few other OSU underclassmen, so I think JL will follow suit.

IIRC, McD has declared. I have to wonder about Laurinatis. He might be able to go too high for him to pass up the position or the money.

GBN has a pretty well updated list, though it does lack McFadden since no one in his camp has come out and said anything yet. Jones entering should tell you everything you need to know. The only remote chance of Jones coming back was if DMac went back to school, despite Petrino's efforts.

Here's my top 10 if JL stays in school.

1. Miami – Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College
2. St. Louis – Jake Long, OT, Michigan
3. Atlanta – Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas
4. Oakland - Chris Long, DE, Virginia
5. Kansas City - Ryan Clady, OT, Boise State
6. New York Jets – Vernon Gholston, DE/OLB, Ohio St.
7. New England – Keith Rivers, OLB, USC
8. Baltimore - Glen Dorsey, DT, LSU
9. Cincinnati – Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC
10. New Orleans – A choice between: Kenny Phillips, FS, Miami… or a CB like Aqib Talib or Mike Jenkins.

If Laurinitis and Jenkins go back to OSU, it's probably because they found out that they would not be picked in the first 15 picks. These guys get information from the NFL about when they will likely be drafted before they make their decisions.

Laurinitis is no A.J. Hawk, Poslunzsky or Patrick Willis. He would be a nice MLB, but not worth a top 10 pick. I think the same is true of Jenkins.

Hopefully a great defensive player falls to us. If not, maybe a great offensive player does or we trade down.
I disagree. Both were already tapped to be top 15, possibly top 10 picks. I think the reason is these guys were left with a sour taste in their mouths after losing to LSU and want one more shot at winning a National Championship.

Baltimore will not take Dorsey. They have no need for him. They are more likely to take a QB or trade down and take a cornerback.

Also, Aqib Talib and Mike Jenkins would both be reaches at this point. Jenkins is a top 20 pick, but not a top 10. Talib, to me, is a late first rounder. That's speaking value, not necessarily where they will go.

It looks like getting up to the #8 pick might be wise for the Saints. The best case scenario is if we stay at #10 and a guy like Ellis or Phillips is still there.

I agree and you can't blame them for that. It's good to see some of these guys are sticking around and enjoying college.

I don't know about anyone else, but it wouldn't hurt my feelings if a guy like Golston fell to us at #10. We could use someone who can get after the QB off the edge.
Of course, I would be more than happy if Dorsey fell to #10.

I'm not all that high on Phillips at #10, nor the CB from Kan.
