    I thought this was a gross mis-spelling of Nnamdi Asomugha.

    So... where does he go? 2nd? 3rd? 4th?

    Seems like a mid 3rd guy to me.

    late second/early third....slim pickings at the guard spot...dismissing Iupati it is Asamoah and Petrus....Newhouse, Johnson, Lauvao, Smith are good prospects a year or so down the road...aftet that it's very much hit or miss.....

    Asomuchas I would like some OL depth, I just can't see us using our 2nd rounder on it this year. Definitely in the 4-5 range, but not 2nd unless he is the screaming BAP on the board.

    This could be our pick today, if all the rumors are true that Faneca will be traded or cut.

    #61 pick??

    Sporting News' Pro Football -
    Here is a capsule look at prospect Jon Asamoah.

    NFL position: G
    Height: 6-4
    Weight: 305
    40 time: 5.08
    Current projection: Second-round pick
    Run blocking: Is strong, and blocks with good leverage at the point of attack. Can chip nose tackle, and then release and still reach middle linebacker with ease. Sustains blocks well on the second level and in the open field. Keeps hands inside defenders' frames. Works to the whistle. Shows the strength and drive to move the pile at the point of attack.
    Pass blocking: Shows the strength to hold his ground against bull rushers and the quickness to kick outside to block defensive ends. Shows a strong hand punch. Slides well to mirror pass rushers' moves. When left uncovered, can dominate defensive linemen on side blocks. At times, is late to pick up stunts and delayed blitzes.
    Initial quickness: Explodes from his stance at the snap. Rolls hips and uncoils upon contact with defender. When caught off-balance, shows the ability to recover quickly.
    Strength: Has outstanding strength. Shows a violent hand punch to jolt defenders. Drop hips to hold his ground against bull rushers. Shows equal strength in upper and lower body.
    Mobility: Shows outstanding mobility to pull and lead perimeter runs, although hasn't been asked to do it often in Illinois' spread offense. Gets out of stance quickly at the snap. Shows good balance, quickness and lower-body flexibility to make open-field blocks. At times, gets straight-legged and lazy with footwork.
    Bottom line: Asamoah has outstanding size, athletic ability and strength, and he could become an NFL starter as a rookie. He doesn't really have a major weakness and is equally adept as a run blocker and pass protector.
