    I've heard that there is bad blood between Al & Howie. Go figure.

    I think TB goes WR - we'll see who's there at 20.

    The Texans need an OL, but will they go for Chris Williams this high? :icon_shrug:

    Atlanta goes DL first - Glenn Dorsey.

    I think the Bears snag Mendenhall & Detroit takes Stewart as Plan B.

    Pats go Branden Albert.

    Bills will either go WR or an edge pass rusher.

    He will be a great ST's player but the fact that he is slow will keep him in the 7th or undrafted.


    Running a 4.82 at both the combine and his proday sealed his fate. Too bad too because he can play. He just doesnt have the speed for the NFL in the secondary.

    That 1.53 for the 10 yards is actually pretty but after that it is downhill.


    Boston College proday results:

    The Boston College workout attracted as much buzz as any this spring with QB Matt Ryan working out. Throwing in front of reps from 23 teams including KC head coach Herm Edward and GMCarl Peterson, Ryan completed 48 of 52 passes, but generally got mixed reviews. Ryan may have been more athletic than teams were expecting and threw the ball well on the run, many of his passes fluttered and didn't always get there with authority. While QB Ryan was the star attraction at the BC workout , he wasn’t the only former Eagle pro team trooped to Boston to see as almost as many teams had reps at the BC pro day to see OT Gosder Cherilus. Indeed, Carolina GM Matt Hurney and his 4-man Panthers’ delegation were there to watch Cherilus, while the Super Bowl champion Giants sent not one, but two offensive line coaches as part of their 3-man delegation. And the 6-8.5 and 317 pound Cherilus didn‘t disappoint running a couple of 40s in just over 5.00 seconds and then reportedly looked very good in position drills. It was still a struggle, though for a couple of Boston College DBs as neither CB DeJuan Tribble nor SS Jamie Silva were able to significantly improve on what were disappointing 40 times at the combine. Tribble, in particular, was actually slower at the BC workout stopping the clock at 4.65 seconds after running in just under 4.6 seconds in Indianapolis. Meanwhile, Silva was stuck in the low 4.8 range, about the same times he had at the combine.

    They list Gosder Cherilus at 6-8.5??? :icon_eek:

    I thought he was 6-7 at best. :icon_shrug:

    Sounds like he had a better pro day than combine re: position drills. At the combine he looked pretty out of control at times.

    It seems almost humorous that a team as stacked as the Colts would heap such praise on an undrafted rookie, but team sources tell us the Colts are genuinely excited about what DT Eric Foster brings to the table. A third-team Associated Press All-American in 2006, the Rutgers product had a stellar collegiate career, but his small size (6-1, 273 pounds) scared off teams from drafting him. Quick, undersized tackles have a long history of thriving in coach Tony Dungy’s defense, which is predicated upon getting a strong pass rush from the front four, and Foster has a chance to be the next in line.

    If Foster pans out, the Colts will have five quality DTs heading into the 2008 season, and most of them young. I'm not even counting Darrell Reid, who is a decent reserve DT and excellent special teams player. DT went from a position of "Oh please oh please don't get hurt, Booger" to arguably the deepest position on the team in the span of one year.

    FU AJ!!!!!!!
