Where do you think Myron Rolle will go in the draft this year? He's spent a year away from the game, but I still think he's a great player. How far will he drop because he didn't play this year?

I think he would have been a 2nd round pick last year. And so he'll probably drop 1 or 2 rounds, so I say 3rd or 4th round.

But he'll play int he Senior Bowl, and presumably invited to the Combine, so he has a chance to move up.

He spent a year in England as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford studying like microbiology or something like it that requires you to push your glasses back up your nose when you say the word.

This was his plan all along. He could have skipped out the Rhodes Scholarship last year and just entered the draft. And he'd be a backup somewhere in the NFL, probably the Saints.

But I think he made the right decision and did the year in England. Yeah, it probably cost him some money (but probably not that much since he wasn't going to be a first round pick), but he'll always be able to play football. He's good.

Rolle was involved in the Rhodes Scholarship program at Oxford. His plan was to study there one year and receive his M.A. in medical anthropology. He is wrapping that up before he goes to the combines etc.
