Trojans Moving on to the NFL

Congratulations to USC's two most recent Heisman Trophy winners, Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart, who were selected in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft. Bush was picked by New Orleans, while Leinart was chosen by Arizona.

In the second round, Winston Justice (Philadelphia), Deuce Lutui (Arizona) and LenDale White (Tennessee) were selected.

In the third round, Frostee Rucker (Cincinnati) and Dominique Byrd (St. Louis) were drafted.

The Oakland Raiders selected Darnell Bing in the fourth round and announced that they plan to convert him to linebacker. In the fifth round, the Seattle Seahawks picked David Kirtman.

LaJaun Ramsey was drafted by the Eagles in the sixth round and Fred Matua was selected by the Lions in the seventh.

Need to update to the correct jersey numbers: Matt Leinart will wear # 7 (his high school jersey) and Deuce Lutui will wear # 76. No word on Bush's jersey number yet but it won't be # 5. NFL Rule 5, Section 1, Article 4 states that all running backs must wear numerals between 20 and 49 (and 25 is currently taken on the Saints roster). LenDale White probably won't get to wear # 21 with the Titans either unless CB Reynaldo Hill agrees to give that number up or is cut this offseason. No current Eagle wears # 74 so Winston Justice should be good to go.

Man, that's a lot of players moving on to the NFL. USC has some fertile grounds.

Too early to judge this draft class, but it appears that it's not nearly as good as previously thought.
