Jonathan Wilhite: CB receiving plenty of looks | 04/23/2008 | Tigers test luck in draft: "The Tigers have three more players who will possibly have their name called out this weekend -- tackle King Dunlap, cornerback Jonathan Wilhite and fullback Carl Stewart. All three, if selected, would be chosen in the late rounds.
Dunlap, who lost his starting tackle position midway through the season, will have his work cut out for him to convince teams he's worth selecting. He's been labled an underachiever and will have to overcome that.
Stewart played behind some talented Auburn running backs, but his ability to play fullback and catch the ball out of the backfield could be his ticket to a career in the NFL.
Another player receiving plenty of looks is cornerback Jonathan Wilhite. Health issues have plagued Wilhite, so he'll have to convince teams he can stay healthy.
Auburn players who could be free agent acquisitions include tight end Cole Bennett, safety Eric Brock, receiver Prechae Rodriguez and defensive tackle Josh Thompson -- who led the Tigers with 67 tackles last year.
One name conspicuously absent from Auburn's list of possible draftees is former quarterback Brandon Cox, who didn't join his teammates for a Pro Day workout and appears content to end his career at this point"
