MATT BOWEN IS TALKING MEMORIES. Okay, maybe he's breaking down Marvin McNutt and his infamous 7-got-6 against Michigan State in 2009. Bowen breaks down the coverage and McNutt's duties as a wide receiver against Michigan State's defense. There's also some links to previous Bowen articles on McNutt as an NFL prospect.

"To me, he's a little bit overvalued right now. You keep seeing him in the top 10 in a lot of mocks. I don't see that. I feel much more comfortable taking him somewhere in the 20s."
