    Griff Whalen and John Flacco are Stanfords top white wide receivers this year. Whalen has been mentioned before as he is the brother of Ryan Whalen. What intrigues me is that Whalen had to walk on to Stanford like his brother despite his brothers success and eventually was given a scholarship.<div>Flacco is the brother of Baltimore QB Joe Flacco. There is some rumblings in Stanford that this kid has the talent to be a 1st team all Pac 10 down the road.</div><div>Also Whalen is Heisman future winner Andrew Lucks roomate. Expect him to eventually become Lucks favorite target as that happens a lot when receivers room with the qb. It worked for Jordy Nelson.</div>

    mattharper, Griff Whalen actually isn't related to Ryan.

    best of luck to him and John Flacco, another walk-on, this year.

    What the hell. I thought they were brothers as I could have sworn Griff was in Ryans senior Stanford bio last year. Im sorry for the mistake. I think I got the Flacco reference at least.
