    Ryan Rodig @ryanrodigwfrv Follow

    Packers, Lions, Bengals, Bills, Panthers, Raiders, Chargers, Dolphins, Colts, Texans among teams represented at #Badgers Pro Day

    Have not found anything definite on Wisconsin, GB was there to see Borland, Cincinnati also sent scouts, I am many teams were there, but I know Caserio was in Mississippi on Monday to possibly see Moncrief

    Mississippi
    Two dozen teams were on hand to watch the Rebels workout today and amongst the decision makers was Nick Cesario of the New England Patriots.

    http://walterfootball.com/proday.php



    Donte Moncrief the big WR? Interesting if that's who he's watching. Esp since they talked with Coleman too, both big guys who are down field threats with deceptive speed for big guys but not much in the way of physical players for their size. Make you wonder why they doubled dipped at WR last year when this year was clearly the better WR year to go with.

    Here's a good reason for their apparent interest in a big WR, Dobson hasn't healed from his season ending injury problems.

    have you guys looked into DeRon Furr? 

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0_VlZmCSOk

    He is on radars, has done a few interviews one is online.  Believe he will be at one of the prodays later in March.

    Also, I'm a huge fan of small school guys who make it, rule for small school guys they must had dominated their oponents

    The ones I would put money on these to get their names called:

    Reggie Jordan TE 6'3" 240lbs, a flex type player runs well and has good vert to go up for the ball.  

    Zach Kerr DT/NT 6'1" 326lbs, very quick off the ball plays in backfield, can he do it with bigger stronger guys I think yes because of his quickness and movement at that weight. 

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=As0ACtkIgZc

    Walt Aikens CB 6'1" 205lbs at senior bowl he didn't have a good showing the first few days but started coming around.  Think it was big lights type thing but has all the tools and speed to develop into a #2 CB.

    Qua Cox CB 5'10" 184lbs Cox is an excellent cover CB, but he's overlooked even though I believe bold statement, he should be no lower than a 4th round pick but probably goes undrafted.  

    Have a few more but will share those later, trying to get their pro days.

     Added one more because he's a beast well as much as you can be coming from Concordia-St. Paul.

    Zack Moore 6'5" 270lbs this kid is raw but has incredible athletic ability and in Division II racked up 33 sacks in college.  High character kid who works hard to improve.  




    Furr, is new to me.  The rest have been mentioned here before. These guys have a good chance to make a roster.  Moore just had his pro day should make a roster.  Aikens to me will get drafted on day 3.

    It'll be interesting to see if they have any interest in Benjamin as that flex TE type.



    It makes sense. He's already 240. 



    The idea is really growing on me... the epitome of "matchup nightmare".

    What big (6-2+ / 200+), Rd 2/mid round WR would you want most?  I'm torn between Moncrief and Latimer... would probably give the edge to Moncrief at this point.

    Donte Moncrief

    Cody Latimer

    Jordan Matthews

    Martavis Bryant

    Brandon Coleman

    Quick question, who are the late 4-7 round safeties the pats could look into? We all know we need a tough ss in the back of our defense. 

    Below are 10 safeties that interest me in that range:

    Antone Exum- VT

    Craig Loston- LSU

    Brock Vereen- Minnesota

    Vinnie Sunseri- Alabama

    Hakeem Smith- Lousiville

    Dontae Johnson- NC State

    Isaiah Lewis- Michigan State

    Jason Hendricks- Pitt

    Dan Sorensen- BYU

    Shamiel Gary- Oklahoma St

     



    I have heard some good comments on vereen, he seems to have the right attitude and with his brother on the tthe tar transition would be easier. He had a good combine too.

    2014 Pro Day Results: Thursday, March 6, 11:45 a.m. 
    By Tony Pauline, http://draftinsider.net/ 

     Clemson 
    The early reports on Sammy Watkins from Clemson have been off the charts. Scouts are gushing how fluid and natural the receiver has been catching the ball. One source from the workout says its one of the best pro-days from a receiver he's ever witnessed. 

    Martavis Bryant, on the other hand, has looked very robotic and has not practiced to the low 4.4 speed he ran to at the combine. 

    Cornerback Bashaud Breeland timed 4.55s in the forty, an improvement from his combine performance. 

     Texas A&M 
    One name that slipped through the crack at Texas A&M pro-day yesterday was running back Ben Malena. The smallish ball carrier ran in the high 4.4s then looked terrific in drills. I am told the New England Patriots, who are very high on Malena, took him to dinner on Tuesday evening.

    None in round 2 rather a TE or DT. If Moncrief makes it to the 3rd I'd take him, my 2nd choice would be Hoffman in the 4th or mid 5th (provided they get a trade), my 3rd choice is either Coleman in the 3rd or Latimer in the 4th. I like Latimer but it's really hard to turn down Colemans size

    Pretty sure they can't take him to dinner after a pro-day. Correct me if I'm wrong but there are rules against it.

    Would be a nice UDFA option though and somewhat make up for letting Woodhead go and not backing up Vereen

    For what it's worth... McShay has NE selecting Hageman at #29 in his Mock 3.0... with Nix, Ealy and Tuitt still on the board.  He has Pryor off the board to STL at #13.

    Hageman over Ealy I can kind of see because BB loves Nink and Ealy really isn't an interior player but Ealy has more talent.

    Hageman over Nix????? McShay is smoking something.

    Hageman over Tuitt I can see. Hageman has higher talent but Tuitt is less of a boom or bust player though he needs to lose weight and I'd be concerned about him keeping it off after he ballooned post surgery. I'm also concerned about if Tuitt benefited a lot next to Nix. Think a lesser version of Brace to Raji

    I would never put Tuitt in Brace's category.  Both Nix and Tuitt are supremely athletic and talented and capable of dominating on their own.

    I can see Hageman over Ealy as well, though I think Ealy is a better player.

    I also agree that Nix > Hageman... don't see them passing on him.

    Cody Hoffman

    They are all good choices in different offenses. Martavis Bryant would be my choice but BB's will be Brandon Coleman and I think they are going to switch him to the TE position if he can handle it.

    even over Tuitt?

    please. I can see Hageman > Tuitt (barely)

    but not at all passing on Nix. if he falls to 29 thats a slam dunk

    To a much lesser degree I mean. Not nearly in the same category but more like Nix is the better of the two and Tuitt might have benefited from that, so while you see his production and I'm sure he'd still be a good player it's hard to judge how he'd handle his own without Nix next to him

    Verrett to have surgery

    5 Mar

    After a lengthy examination then re-examination process TCU cornerback Jason Verrett has decided to undergo surgery to repair his injured labrum.  Here’s why.

    Speaking with those from Verrett’s camp this evening I found out most of the news from doctors re-examining his injured labrum was positive.  Verrett was offered two options; 1) rehabilitate his injured labrum without surgery or 2) undergo surgery to repair the labrum.

    While rehabilitation without the surgery sounded comforting I’m told Verrett was informed he would be dealing with a large degree of potential pain moving forward and there was no guarantee another knock to the shoulder would not further damage the labrum at which point surgery would be a necessity.  That meant the possibility of missing a portion of the 2014 season.

    Surgery before the draft would immediately repair the injury, lessen any pain experienced from the start of camp and severely reduce the potential of further damage moving forward.

    Considering Verrett will have at least four months after the procedure to rehab his labrum, undergoing surgery was a no brainer.

    I’m told Verrett’s schedule will closely follow what I originally reported from the combine on Saturday, February 22nd, though the date of surgery has yet to be confirmed.

    Tomorrow Verrett will participate in pro-day at TCU and is expected to bench press and take part in position drills.  League franchises will also be informed of the exact date of the surgery in the next day or so.

    League sources told me tonight this will not effect Verrett’s draft stock.  Dion Jordan and Dee Milliner had similar procedures a year ago and both ended up in the top ten selections in the 2013 NFL Draft.

    WR Mike Evans met with New England March 6th, 2014 Morgan Smith Posted in Features, Main, News, Opinions

    USATSI_7425351_154511498_lowres-515x343

    The New England Patriots held a meeting with Texas A&M WR Mike Evans Tuesday.

    Mike Evans is a top 10 pick so New England isn’t getting him but wanted to meet with the talented 6’5 receiver.

    The Patriots drafted Aaron Dobson in the 2nd round last year, and Josh Boyce in the 4th round. They also signed undrafted free agent WR Kenbrell Thompkins.

    When Boyce played he impressed with his speed, but not his hands. Dobson, and Thompkins had moments but never lived up to be as good as expected.

    The Pats need another wide receiver because they can’t count on these guys again because who knows if they actually develop.

    Edelman and Brady need some help and Evans would be a mega boost, but he isn’t coming to New England so congrats to whoever lands him!
