What do you guys think of Brian Cushing as a prospect? Coming out of High School, he put up some ridiculous numbers with a 4.51 40, 38 Bench Reps and a 40" vertical. Has played SLB and stand-up DE for USC, but seems versatile enough to play any LB spot in a 4-3 or 3-4. Injuries seem to be the only thing holding him back as he's had knee surgery and sat out some of 2007 with an ankle injury that hasn't quite gone away. Still won Rose Bowl D-MVP after the ankle. But with a solid Senior season and a great Combine, I could see him going in the top 10. If things play out, USC's defense could potentially have 3 Top 10 picks in Cushing, Maualuga, and Mays.
