BSMW SUMMARY (as of 3/31/07)
A former Heisman favorite that was felled by a broken leg during the first game of his senior season, Bush was once considered a premier prospect and a legitimate first round talent. Big, powerful and fast, the profiles say he’s a patient runner with good vision and quick feet. Wildly productive prior to his injury. Considered very smooth as route runner and pass catcher, he’ll also step in and handle blitz pickup. Thought to be an unselfish, team leader type. The profiles suspect he won’t make people miss or be as much of a breakaway threat against faster pros. Though there isn’t expected to be any long-term effects from his leg injury, he nonetheless has slipped down the board to the third round area, where he may be an intriguing pick up for the Pats. They worked out Bush on the Louisville campus in March. He sounds like a player – providing he has sufficiently recovered – that could end up outperforming his draft position.
