    Re: Who Will Be A Better Pro

    Depends on who I have to pick from. If you are talking about Cyclones who are going to be rookies in the NFL in 2008 then there is a lot to consider.

    Alvin Bowen is with the Bills as a LB but will make his living as a special teams guy for a while before he gets a crack at LB. Injuries to the starters could play a role inthat but at his size I don't see him holding up as a starter at the NFL level.

    Rubin was drafted by the Browns and could find himself in the DT rotation in 2008. I think he has a shot to be a good run stopper and make a solid contribution early.

    Blythe has been in camps with the Saints but reports I have read in the papers do not give him much of a chance at making the team. Possible practice squadder or might hook on with a different team. I like the guy and think he will find a spot due to his size and red zone potential.

    Right now I would have to say that Rubin has the best shot at a lenghty pro career because he has the measureables for his position at the NFL level. He showed dramatic improvement at ISU which should continue under Romeo Crannel's coaching staff. That and big DTs are getting harder and harder to find since colleges are using smaller faster guys to defend the spread option attacks that the college games is seemingly favoring these days.

    I will pick any of the above except for Kevin Love just so that McHale loses his job and Freddy takes over

    Re: Who Will Be A Better Pro

    It's Beasley with Russell Westbrook being second. Mayo third. Love and Rose will be average players in their careers IMO

    Re: Who Will Be A Better Pro

    I think Love will be a solid, not great player with a long career. Westbrook could be a good running mate for Durant, and at the very least he'll have a decent career because of his defense, I would think.

    I think Beasley, Rose, and Mayo are all potential All Stars.

    Re: Who Will Be A Better Pro

    I'm biased because I'm a Bulls fan but I say Rose. He has the potential to be a game changer which is something the Bulls need badly right now. I hope Beasley does well but for some reason I see a lot of Derrick Coleman in him when it comes to work ethic and especially how he plays defense.

    I'm inclined to give the nod to Blythe. The Knicks are so pathetic that he probably could get some playing time with them right now!

    I don't know, white receivers in the NBA usually don't pan out.

    However the Knicks do have experience with Charlie Ward in bringing college gridiron stars onto the hardwood.
