2007 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Michael Bush, RB, Louisville

Bush is obviously a major wild card of the 2007 NFL Draft, as he missed basically the entire season with a broken leg, which he suffered in Louisville's first game. The injury derailed what could have been a 2006 campaign that featured a run for the Heisman Trophy. After all, Bush was coming off a junior season that saw him run for 1143 yards and 23 touchdowns while averaging 5.4 yards per carry. Bush is a monstrosity of a running back, and scouts could still have time to fall in love with him if he is ready to perform well at the NFL combine. If he isn't, then Bush will be a huge risk and could slip into the late-second round or even the third. The fact that Bush has never even pretended to able to block anyone will also hurt his stock. Still, his phenomenal size (to go along with solid breakaway speed and outstanding vision) should make Bush worthy of an early-to-mid second round selection.
