Presently we rank Carey as the 24th prospect in the draft, which surprises many. The fact is, based off the 2002 film when he played right tackle, Carey was first round talent. In fact we'd go as far as saying had the mammoth lineman entered the April 2003 draft he likely would've been the fourth offensive tackle selected after George Foster, and would've slipped into the late part of round one. A good week of practice at the tackle position in Mobile would vault Carey back into the first frame.
Jonathan Vilma is also seriously considering playing in the Senior Bowl. The undersized linebacker, who many project to the outside, has watched his stock soar this season. Vilma would further benefit by proving to a collective group of scouts in Mobile that handling of the outside linebacker duties would be a seamless transition for him.
Finally, cornerback Antrell Rolle is still struggling with his choice of whether or not to stay at Miami or leave for the NFL from what we were told. As reported on December 5, Rolle sought the advice of the NFL Advisory Committee on his prospects for April's draft. And while the results were good it did not guarantee what Rolle wanted to hear; definite inclusion of his name in round one. Many feel if the cover-corner has one more lights out performance in the Orange Bowl he will declare for the draft.
Ironically, Rolle's play against Florida State the past two years has been exceptional and included a shutdown performance against Anquan Boldin in the Hurricanes dramatic victory over rival Florida State in 2002.
