Welcome to The Show! On Thursday, NFL prospect and former Central Michigan offensive tackle Joe Staley will stop by to chat about the NFL draft.

ESPN.com's Scouts Inc. has evaluated every player in the draft and this is what they say about Staley: ''Staley is a converted tight end who has gained more than 70 pounds since stepping on campus at Central Michigan as a true freshman in 2003. He isn't a powerful drive blocker and he must continue to improve his overall strength. What impresses us most; however, are Staley's outstanding feet and mobility. On the flip side, it's rare to find an offensive lineman with such quick feet and 4.8-second speed in the 40-yard dash. Staley held his own early in the 2006 season against top-competition (Boston College and Michigan), which helps considering most of his playing time came against mid-major defenders. While he's far from a finished product, we think Staley has enough upside and proven skills to warrant a late-first or an early-second round selection in the 2007 draft.''
