Selvie back in '09? 'I enjoy the college life'



Early projections for the 2009 NFL Draft continue to show USF junior defensive end George Selvie as a potential first-round pick, but Selvie said Tuesday that he's not thinking about the Bulls' next two games as possibly being his final home games at USF.

"I haven't thought about that. I'm just looking to finish up the season strong, go to a bowl game, have fun. That's what I'm thinking about," said Selvie, due to graduate in May.

Selvie said he might submit his name to the NFL's advisory board for underclassmen, which would give him a projection of where he might go -- "maybe, maybe not ... it won't hurt," he said. But even if the advisory board told him he'd be a likely first-rounder, he said he'd be fine letting a pro career wait for another year.

"I don't know how I'd respond to that. I haven't been thinking about that," Selvie said. "I enjoy college football. I enjoy the college life. I have nothing to worry about here. It's the real world out there. It's all business. I've got people that care about me here, and I've got an extra year. That's all I'm thinking about."'s Todd McShay has Selvie as the No. 26 prospect on his draft board, with 13 underclassmen projected to go ahead of him. Selvie is the fourth defensive end on his board, behind Georgia Tech's Michael Johnson, Texas' Brian Orakpo and Mississippi's Greg Hardy.
