The thing is, I'm not sure where he'll go. Marshall guys typically drop in the draft (and end up turning out to be steals: Moss dropped, Pennington dropped, Leftwich dropped, Bradshaw was the 5th to last pick in the draft and is now starting in his 2nd super bowl). Right now he's projected as a 1-2 rounder.
A Marshall guy, eh? I've known about Curry for a while -- mainly because I liked Mario Harvey a lot last season, but it appears he's not an NFL player. I'm a fan of Curry's game and think he's going to be a good pro. The guy from Marshall who really intrigues me, at least from the games I've been able to watch, is free safety Omar Brown. Strikes me as a big time sleeper. I don't see him on too many draft sites and he's barely even mentioned in general, but I really liked what I saw of him (great ball skills, impressive tackler for the position). What's your opinion?
