Yeah, they're ready... to make some money

The article focuses on some football players who have decided to leave college early to join the NFL. LenDale White from Southern California is the best player in the draft. He usually carried some extra weight at USC, but think of the payoff if a team can get him in optimum shape. Mario Williams intrigues scouts because he has the size to hold up against the run and is a force off the edge in passing situations. Antonio Cromartie from Florida is the classic case of a player who no longer wanted to be in school. Cromartie has potential, but he missed this season rehabilitation after reconstructive knee surgery.
