In my opinion, they both need another year of experience especially Harris. Flowers is a pretty good cover corner and he's physical. He's made second team All American, and All ACC first team awards which were deserving, but he skill need to work on his all around game more. I honestly feel that he's not a top five corner in this year's draft and if he goes back to Tech he'll definately be a top ten 2009 draft pick. However....Harris is alittle bit different. He has great size at 6'1 195, and he has excellent speed at a legit 4.39, 44.0. But he's cover skills are bad. He gives his defender way too much space like he doesn't has the speed to defend. His tackling ability is terrible. Too much ankle raps, that's little league tackling. I need to see more solid tackling from him. I feel that's the difference between him and Flowers. Flowers will come up and hit, unlike Harris. They both ended the season with five interceptions but like I said they both still need more work. I honestly feel that one more year will give both corners a higher draft look. My prediction for the two. Flowers: top ten pick and Harris somewhere late second round. Im just tired of seeing undeveloped players going to the league.

Whaaaaa? With all the important stuff going on is anybody really interested if any of Beamers gang of thugs and misfits will go to the NFL? Good God where are our priorities? I watched a program the other day on the decline of the Roman Empire. At the end the people became obsessed with sports and packed the stadiums. Sounds like Americans now. How about doing something positive for your fellow man.

Hey, what the heck happened last night in the Orange Bowl? Some good "Beamer Ball" was played by......KANSAS! And Hokie Nation laughed at UVA. What a debacle. An offensive nightmare.
