A Couple Winners

If someone bet you in January that defensive end Frostee Rucker and tight end Dominique Byrd would be drafted ahead of safety Darnell Bing, would you have taken it?
Rucker and Byrd were the big winners Saturday, selected in the third round by the Bengals and Rams, respectively. Byrd overcame the fact he was almost a forgotten part of USC’s offense last season and had a history of injuries.
The big question today is where Bing will get drafted? Today reminded me that when Bing was a senior in high school, USC coach Pete Carroll thought he was perhaps the best NFL prospect of his recruiting class. Maybe the NFL needs to adopt the NBA’s policy of allowing players to turn pro without signing with an agent.
Also don’t forget offensive lineman Fred Matua. Personally, I’m rooting for a team to take a chance on cornerback Justin Wyatt, one of the nicest guys on the team.
