Corn Flakes: Recruiting Maddness

Well it's getting to be recruiting madness. Look for players to switch, commit, de-commit, and rumors about it all! So what says you Reader of the Corn? Who's N, and who's not?

Mock Draft version 1 - NFL News - FOX Sports on MSN

1. St. Louis Rams -- Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska: Hey, no one was exactly blown away by the start of the Keith Null Era in St. Louis. The sixth-round rookie gunslinger out of West Texas A&M (college quarterbacks coach? Ryan Leaf. I wish I was kidding.) did little to inspire the masses in his four starts at quarterback for the Rams at the end of St. Louis's abysmal 1-15 2009 campaign. But I just don't see GM Billy Devaney and coach Steve Spagnuolo letting "The Boy Named Suh" slide by them. For as bad as the Rams offense was in '09, the defense was probably worse. Suh has been compared favorably to just about every great DT in the past 20 years, most commonly Warren Sapp and Haloti Ngata. For as tempting as Jimmy Clausen or Sam Bradford might be for the quarterback-starved Rams, Suh's the pick. They'll get their quarterback later on. More on that in a bit.

Well it's getting to be NFL draft season as well. Watch what happens when teams have too much time from the end of the college season until the draft to second, and third, and fourth guess themselves.

I know this guy, who, for an otherwise responsible adult, spends too much time analyzing the impulses of 18-year-old football players. I know several people like him. You may, too. But for the sake of this discussion, let's call him Chad.

Chad needs to settle the heck down. Or have a talk with Husker Mike about recruiting. You don't see him freaking out do you?
