2007 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

JaMarcus Russell, QB, LSU

Nobody should have been surprised when Russell declared he was foregoing his senior season at LSU to enter the 2007 NFL Draft. It was quite clear in the Sugar Bowl that the 6'6" quarterback is ready for the next level. In fact, no player helped his professional stock more than Russell during the bowl season. Russell most likely soared from a mid-first round pick to an almost guaranteed top 5 selection. With two teams (Oakland and Detroit) who need a QB picking at the top of the draft, it would not come as a shock if Russell is either the #1 or #2 overall pick. He could be a few years away from the Pro Bowl, but Russell's upside is off the charts. His arm strength is tantalizing, and his entire physical presence will surely make Al Davis think long and hard about making this freak of nature the top overall pick.
