Injuries are costly. Nobody knows this better than Michael Bush, RB Louisville. Was once considered a 1st Round talent, now a late first day or possibly early second day pick. Bush broke his right leg halfway through the 2006 season. He had a titanium rod inserted in his leg to promote healing, which did not work and went in for a second surgery on March 20th. Needless to say he was unable to workout for scouts.
Some team will take a gamble on Bush which just may work out to be a great move. The latest mock draft courtesy of Packerchatters.com has a complete 7 round Mock draft with the Packers choosing Bush in the 4th round. I say go for it. Buffalo took a chance on Willis McGhaee after his horrific leg injury in the National Championship game.
But can Bush still be a punishing back in the NFL. He has great size at 6'2" 243lbs and is listed as running a 4.55 40. Bush could be a great goal line asset to some team if given time to rehab and recover. Will Ted Thompson roll the dice......we'll have to wait in see.
