Getting Draft Ready: Underclassmen Set

January 15, 2008 was the deadline for collegiate players with eligibility remaining to officially make themselves available for the NFL draft. Our friends at College Football Talk have the updated list which includes running back Jonathan Stewart of Oregon.

Being on the West Coast we get to see Mr. Stewart with a certain amount of regularity, and have always been impressed by his ability to run both inside and outside -- much like my Maurice Jones-Drew. How good is he? Well, former Dallas Cowboys general manager Gil Brandt, appearing on Sirius radio's The Red Zone predicted that Jonathan Stewart will be chosen ahead of the more heralded Darren McFadden.

For those wondering what the first round of the draft might look like, Todd McShay of Scouts Inc. has posted his predictions on -- with Darren McFadden going #4 and Jonathan Stewart going #16.
