Six players left in green room should go quickly

By Derek Harper | The Sports Xchange/CBSSports.com
Of the 26 players who accepted invitations to attend the NFL Draft at Radio City Music Hall, six remain entering Friday night.

Stanford tight end Coby Fleener, Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn, Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill, LSU wide receiver Rueben Randle, Penn State defenive tackle Devon Still and Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw went to bed Thursday night still not knowing where their first NFL destination will be.

Good thing the NFL gave them two-night reservations.

All were among Dane Brugler's best available remaining prospects, and should go off the board fairly quickly tonight.

Upshaw, at No. 18, was the highest-rated among the group by NFLDraftScout.com entering the draft. Hill and Randle were hurt by a deep group of wide receivers bunched in the late-first and second round picture. It didn't help that the 49ers reached for NFLDraftScout.com's No. 7-rated wide receiver, A.J. Jenkins, with the No. 30 overall pick.

St. Louis kicks off the action tonight with the 33rd overall pick - unless the trade winds kick up in full force again.
