    Coach needs to be reminded that at BYU one says "he'll play at another level," not "he'll play on Sunday."

    From an NFL perspective Fua's size is a problem. But he has instincts like Van Noy and probably a better tackler and better speed.

    I just don't think Kaufusi has the speed needed in the NFL for an OLB/Pass Rusher. He really didn't impress on the D-line last year. Maybe he will blossom in this new position.

    Right now, I don't think anyone on the defense is a sure NFL draftee. That could certainly could change with some stand-out performances this season.

    I think Fua will be drafted around the 4th or 5th round.

    He isn't a freak of nature like Ziggy or Kyle, so I doubt he will go super high.

    But he is still very fast and athletic, and is doing a good job bulking up as well.

    I would love to see him get drafted this year and then see Bronson get drafted either this year or next year.

    And I would be shocked if Troy Hinds isn't drafted down the road.

    BYU is becoming a factory for NFL pass-rushing talent. Hopefully we can become more consistent with producing draft picks at other positions.

    You know I'm really okay if I college player excels at the college level, but doesn't have it takes to play at the NFL level.

    I cheer for BYU Thursday through Saturday, and read about former BYU pros on Monday.

    U don't watch the Seahawks on Sunday? I hope you are staying smoke free in the Tri-cities; these wild fires are horrible.

    I'm a Seahawks fan! I thought it was sacrilegious NOT to watch them.

    part of me always felt like Bronson should've started on the OL when he came to BYU if he wanted to have a sure fire NFL career.

    Nonetheless I hope he and Fua garner a lot of attention playing the OLB position and have some big games.
