As we near draft weekend, USC's Winston Justice is one prospect who might be slipping. Justice's superior pro-day workout on April 2 seemingly helped him solidify a spot in the top 15, but teams are becoming increasingly weary of his somewhat laid-back demeanor and the significant character issues from his past.
The Eagles have long been rumored to covet Justice, but I'm beginning to hear otherwise. In fact, there are still reports of the Eagles, who currently own pick No. 14, moving into the top 10 (possibly in a trade with the Bills) in the hopes of landing Florida State DT Brodrick Bunkley. If the Eagles stay put, a source also tells me Florida WR Chad Jackson is high on the team's wish list.
A potential landing spot for Justice could be the Cowboys at pick No. 18, but there are rumors that head coach Bill Parcells would not sign off on another laid-back Southern California offensive tackle after the Jacob Rogers fiasco (second round, 2004). If Justice does experience a free fall, the Chargers would be delighted to address their biggest need with the in-state product.
USC's Winston Justice could experience a free fall. Plus, notes on Vernon Davis, Ernie Sims and more.
