hi, UT

Coach needs to be reminded that at BYU one says "he'll play at another level," not "he'll play on Sunday."

From an NFL perspective Fua's size is a problem. But he has instincts like Van Noy and probably a better tackler and better speed.

I just don't think Kaufusi has the speed needed in the NFL for an OLB/Pass Rusher. He really didn't impress on the D-line last year. Maybe he will blossom in this new position.

Right now, I don't think anyone on the defense is a sure NFL draftee. That could certainly could change with some stand-out performances this season.

I think Fua will be drafted around the 4th or 5th round.

He isn't a freak of nature like Ziggy or Kyle, so I doubt he will go super high.

But he is still very fast and athletic, and is doing a good job bulking up as well.

I would love to see him get drafted this year and then see Bronson get drafted either this year or next year.

And I would be shocked if Troy Hinds isn't drafted down the road.

BYU is becoming a factory for NFL pass-rushing talent. Hopefully we can become more consistent with producing draft picks at other positions.

You know I'm really okay if I college player excels at the college level, but doesn't have it takes to play at the NFL level.

I cheer for BYU Thursday through Saturday, and read about former BYU pros on Monday.

U don't watch the Seahawks on Sunday? I hope you are staying smoke free in the Tri-cities; these wild fires are horrible.

I'm a Seahawks fan! I thought it was sacrilegious NOT to watch them.

Go Hawks!

part of me always felt like Bronson should've started on the OL when he came to BYU if he wanted to have a sure fire NFL career.

Nonetheless I hope he and Fua garner a lot of attention playing the OLB position and have some big games.

Duck outta water, Spokane Ute, that IS why the Lord invented DVR!

At least we are united behind one team. GO HAWKS!
