Wedge Scouting Report: Paul Dawson

PaulDawson1Wedge ID

     Before I became an Intergalactic Agent, I had to pass my PP140s.  I studied and studied  and studied.  On the big day of the test I was so nervous – but I sat down and took the test.  Weeks later I received my results.  And guess what?  I failed!  So I took the test the next year.  And I failed.  And the year after.  And I failed.  Anyway the saying in some corners of the universe is that the eighth time is a charm and that holds true in my case.  Now I have obliterated over 23 planets, not including moons with lifeforms and completely wiped out over 146 species of lifeforms.  Ahhhh, the pride I take in being an Intergalactic Alien!  If not for that stupid test I could have destroyed another dozen planets by now.

PaulDawson2

     There is nothing like preparing your whole life to take a test and then tanking on the test.  So when I heard about Paul Dawson’s combine I understood.  Paul Dawson ran the 40 in a sluggish 4.93.  He was measured a little shorter than expected at 6’0.  But maybe more disappointing than anything was his 28″ vertical leap which was the worst among linebackers and a full 2.5 inches worse than 300 + pound Danny Shelton’s jump.  Ouch!  But don’t worry Dawson.  There is redemption for everyone and the tape don’t lie!

PaulDawson6

     How productive was Dawson at TCU?  Well before I mention individual stats, lets not forget that TCU is one of the best defenses in the country and has been for years.  in 2014 Paul Dawson helped make that happen.  Despite his 40 time, Dawson is quite agile moving from sideline to sideline: blowing up the run or the pass.

PaulDawson3

     Dawson excels in pass coverage.  He allowed just 35.7 of the passes against him to be completed.  He intercepted four passes in 2014 as well.  But it wasn’t just pass coverage, Dawson collected 6 sacks in 2014.  In his time at TCU the JUCO transfer had 241 tackles at TCU, collecting 136 in 2014.  But I guess to some his 40 time is going to negate that production.

PaulDawson4

     Paul Dawson’s combine performance paired with rumors of character issues and poor film room habits probably killed his chances to get selected before the 2nd round is through.  But in the 3rd round or even the 4th room, some one is going to get a very productive linebacker.

PaulDawson5

     If I was going to compare Dawson to an Alien Weapon of Destruction I would compare him to the Planetary Wrecking Ball.  Our wrecking balls are different than the wrecking balls of Earth.  First, there is no whore on our wrecking balls.  Second, we don’t smash the ball into the planet.  We tie the planet to a rope and smash the planet into a star.

    Paul Dawson? Pass! His higlights look pretty good, but those combine times are atrocious.

  2. dbolt48 says:

    If he interviews well & the “bad teammate” thing is bogus…..Id have no hesitation taking him. This is a player to which I say screw the combine numbers great angles and instincts take him to the play and he is great in zone coverage.

  3. dbolt48 says:

    Id compare Dawson’s free fall to the Bengals Burfict.

  4. D says:

    I don’t think Dawson will transition to MLB like some of the others will. I think he plays best at wlb and would be pretty good from that spot though may have some issues covering receiving backs in his done. I’m not so worried about his lack of good combine numbers as what I saw on film. Natural olb poor/limited potential at ilb. May could play slb as well but generally in films he was at wlb or ilb. Since I feel we need ilb this draft he wouldn’t be enticing to me until 3rd where Hus talent I think would make him hard to pass on

    • dbolt48 says:

      I think he has the instincts for MLB, the big question is can he be kept clean???? I’m still on the Mike Hull train though….LOL

  5. dcoralsprings says:

    And then there is Dion Jordan
    3rd overall, 1st def player taken
    Again we are talking about shoving him
    Deep into rotation at DE

    Can he really be that bad at LB ?

    • The Flying Pig says:

      After we signed Suh I gave up the idea of Jordan at LB
      Mostly bc I want to see Jordan play DE on the same line a Suh and Wake
      He might get a lot of opoorunities
      There have been flashes from Jordan
      He needs to take up his play significanl;ty this year

  6. Rhino says:

    Been reading different mocks (they all are based on “need” rather than BPA… which our front office seems determined to position themselves for)…

    one had RB Langford (Mich St) to us in 4th round… hadn’t seen that before, but…

    I think Phins are still waiting for a veteran guard to get released … THEN I think BPA is a real shot. I know we have lots of spots that need upgrades but so do lots of teams.

    Phins really have 3 “starting” priorities: G, WR, LB… can’t fill all three in draft (unless we get real lucky in middle rounds).

  7. Mike E. says:

    The kid has excellent instincts, and that means a lot. Being in the right place sometimes is better than having blazing speed, but being out of position. It’s funny how almost all the hood prospcets at MLB are all about the same size, and yet some are considered too small.

    Kendricks – 6’0″ 232
    Dawson 6’0″ 235
    Perryman 5’11” 235

    Now some of the other guys are bigger, like McKinney 6’4″246, and Anthony 6’3″ 243, but the 3 that are talked about most (except for D-Bolts love child Mike Hull), are all smaller guys almost identical size and weight.

    • dbolt48 says:

      What do you mean by “Hood prospects”???? Mike going w/ stereotypes now 😜😜😜😜

    • The Flying Pig says:

      instncts are everything
      Thos 3 guys you meantioned have great instincts

      Honestly I really don;t want Dawson as our pick unless he really drops

  8. Mike E. says:

    DCoral

    I doubt that Dion Jordan would be so bad at LB, but I think what they want to do is have him become good at something he’s familiar with, before they confuse him and have him learn other positions. It’s disappointing at this point, but the kid has to start making an impact besides ST’s.

  9. The Flying Pig says:

    • dbolt48 says:

      That speed with his size explains why guys look like they got ran over by a car when they try to grab his legs when he’s full speed.

  10. The Flying Pig says:

  11. Mike E. says:

    Piggy – Nice job on all these reports. Thanks for doing all that hard work, and giving us fresh material every day, much appreciated!

    BTW – Every time I look at Wedge’s badge I see Parcells instead of Parcels. lol

  12. wyoming85 says:

    I would take Dawson in the second!
    Unless of course we take Kendrick’s in the first!

    As of now I would go

    RD1 OT/OG – WR – LB
    RD2 WR – LB – FS
    RD4 LB – FS – CB
    RD5 FS – C – CB
    RD5 C – CB – WR
    RD6 CB – RB – WR – QB

    • The Flying Pig says:

      You don’t get 3 players per round…lol

    • wyoming85 says:

      14: R1P14 OT BRANDON SCHERFF IOWA
      47: R2P15 ILB PAUL DAWSON TCU
      114: R4P15 WR PHILLIP DORSETT MIAMI (FL)
      149: R5P13 CB DORAN GRANT OHIO STATE
      150: R5P14 S JAQUISKI TARTT SAMFORD
      190: R6P15 QB JERRY LOVELOCKE PRAIRIE VIEW A&M (don’t know him! But what a name!)

  13. The Flying Pig says:

    Still made about the patriots getting an inexplicable 3rd round comp pick

  14. The Flying Pig says:

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000480988/article/chiefs-seahawks-broncos-lead-2015-compensatory-draft-picks

    Here is a list of all the comp picks
    Seems like a lot of 3rd and 4ths flying around

  15. dbolt48 says:

    @nfldraftscout: Good Rd3 sleeper WR RT @BlackBlueReview: Unofficial 4.4 for Justin Hardy at ECU’s Pro Day this AM. Improvement from 4.56 at combine.

  16. The Flying Pig says:

    This explains his stock dropping

  17. Mike E. says:

    Does anyone have a list of players that the Patriots both lost and added in FA last year. I think it’s bullshit how they got picks.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      They lost spikes and Talib

      They signed revis

      • Mike E. says:

        I found this, but can’t verify the accuracy

        LOST: L. Blount, A. Carter, A. Talib, D. Fletcher, B. Spikes, M. Mulligan

        SIGNED: B. Browner, P. Chung, C. Hughlett, J. Hull, B. Lafell, D.Revis, W. Smith

        It seems as if they lost 6 and signed 7, and the quality of the players they signed compared to the quality of players they let go seems in favor of the ones they brought in. Makes no sense to me why they got picks, especially a fucking 3rd RD pick!

  18. Mike E. says:

    Wyo

    That’s a good draft, but I think we both know Dorsett will be gone in the 3rd, and Tartt as well. Still, I like it.

  19. BoulderPhinfan says:

    wow just listened to philbin’s interview at the owner meeting. never seen him so scared. He just doesn’t look like he’s having fun.

    I can easily foresee a season like Sparanos last season here.

    • New Age says:

      You misinterpreted him. The cleaning staff had been sub-par and he had seen gum wrappers everywhere and well as other trash. It was a disaster!!

      • BoulderPhinfan says:

        LOL. His response to why we kept coyle after allowing over 30 points the last 3 games was hilarious. basically blamed the players.

        I hope he didn’t sell his house in GB. He’ll be moving back in there jan 2016

      • New Age says:

        Yeah, says it’s the players fault but we are going to simplify the defense. Double talk expert here.

  21. New Age says:

    Piggy,
    I much prefer our wrecking balls that have whores attached to them. They help keep our politicians busy and motivated(and their sons).

    He has enough red flags that he should move down pretty far which could be a good thing.

  22. stangerx says:

    “Now I have obliterated over 23 planets, not including moons with lifeforms and completely wiped out over 146 species of lifeforms”

    LMAO Pig — ahh what we all did back in the day.

    Dawson sounds interesting……..unless we get the trade down sounds like we’d have to hope he falls to the 4th though.

  23. Mike E. says:

    Stanger

    Dawson is a good football player. He may not be an elite athlete, but he’s an instinctive, solid player.

    • stangerx says:

      Is he a guy we could draft and pop right into the starting line up?

      • Mike E. says:

        I think so. Some feel like he might have to start at OLB, but I think he has the instincts to play MLB.

      • stangerx says:

        Getting that in the 3rd or 4th would be a blessing, but then we wouldn’t be sure we had him till we did, and if we didn’t………

  24. jetsssuck says:

    Who’s this JD Walton center they signed? I understand he played in all 16 games with Giants and before that he played with Denver before hurting his fibula and ankle.
    Here’s a question for you guys . Didn’t the dolphins and Browns swap cap specialists and we got dawn and they got our guy?

    • The Flying Pig says:

      He was one of the worst Rated centers on the NFL last season

      But he did play all 16 games

      He is purely backup material

  25. Mike E. says:

    jetssuck

    Walton is strictly backup material. The Giants drafted Weston Richburg last year, and now Richburg is ready to roll, so out goes Walton. He’s not a starter.

  26. The Flying Pig says:

    Mike E

    I agree about the cheats
    The 3rd round comp pick is outrageous

  27. Mike E. says:

    Stanger

    As of now we don’t have a 3rd. He might be around in the 4th, his combine didn’t help him any, that’s for sure. I think at one time he was considered a a borderline 1st RD pick, and if he ran a 4.5 or 4.6, he still might be.

  28. New Age says:

    I like how the trick the Pats used against the Ravens is now illegal. Just keep it legal long enough for one more SB is what Kraft demanded of his minion Goodell.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      It was legal at the time
      But it was deception
      Some people call Belicheat a genius for that
      But it just was not good football

      They lose that game if that drive doesn’t rely on that and score

      • New Age says:

        Yeah, it wasnt the most egregious call to go their way but the deflated balls really emphasize how cheating is rewarded by the NFL.

  29. Mike E. says:

    Shelby will be back another season with the Dolphins

    http://touch.sun-sentinel.com/#section/-1/article/p2p-83152869/

  30. Mike E. says:

    New Age

    My best friend Scott is so pissed the Steelers let Legarrette Blount go, without having a suitable backup for Bell. So not only does Bell get hurt, and the Steelers are screwed, but then he goes on to help the Patriots win the Superbowl. SUCKS!

    • New Age says:

      Yeah, I totally understand why they did it but the foreshadowing of what would happen was sickening to see actually happen.

  31. Al in MIA says:

    This was written a few days ago …

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2406361-nfl-compensatory-picks-2015-rules-formula-explanation-and-latest-projections

    OverTheCap predicted correctly the 3rd RD pick for NE this year (based largely on Talib it seems):

    “Sitting atop the compensatory projections is the Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots, who should land a third-round pick for cornerback Aqib Talib. The Broncos gave Talib a six-year, $57 million contract last offseason and watched on as he earned a Pro Bowl berth. ”

    From the article regarding compensatory formula …

    “Compensatory Picks Are Based on Players Lost/Gained in Free Agency: In most cases, a team needs to have lost more players who qualify for compensatory status than gained over the last league year. The NFL determines which players qualify for said status. ”

    “All Free Agents Are Not Considered Equal: The NFL makes its determination on what round compensatory players correlate to via a combination of factors: “salary, playing time and postseason honors,” per a 2012 press release. The exact formula, again, is not public; however, it’s a pretty good bet that the more money a player makes, the higher his compensatory value. In essence: Look for the Detroit Lions to land squarely in the third round next year after losing Ndamukong Suh to the Miami Dolphins.”

  32. The Flying Pig says:

  33. Mike E. says:

    Shelby did more than Odrick last season. 26 tackles and 3 1/2 sacks. See ya Jared!

  34. Mike E. says:

    Going by that formula, we should get something for Odrick and Clay next year.

  35. wyoming85 says:

    Happy now?

    • Mike E. says:

      Except Talib, and Blount, who they freaking got back, there’s a lot of chafe on their lost list.

      • New Age says:

        Mike E,
        I agree. I recognize most of the players they picked up but not most of the ones they lost. Any system that isn’t transparent is liable for abuse which is what we are seeing. The NFL should make their system public.

      Lol, seriously. I guess Goodell thinks the issue goes away if they wait long enough. Not enough Pat band-wagoners for that.

  39. Al in MIA says:

    Wyo,
    The joke is that the NFL deems which player count as ‘compensatory’ eligible (eligible to count as worthy of being part of the formula).
    Anyway, by your list, the Patriots lost 20 players and gained only 11.
    Talib & Revis were both Pro Bowlers so not sure how the rest of the players involved in the gain/loss list played into it.

  41. stangerx says:

    Good news — I guess — from the Hernandez trial is that his calls to Pouncey from jail can not be used as evidence. So we won’t be hearing more about them.

    Does make me wonder about our center though, especially since he was the VP of bullygate and the dude’s house in the Wells Report that Richie told Martin he was glad he didn’t do late night to. Best light I can put on it is he is the life of the party and loyal.

    • jahndoh says:

      Not a big fan of guilt by association. He’s his friend. I maybe didn’t see transcripts of every call, but I don’t think Pouncey had anything to do with the murder, or any murders Hernandez is accused of committing, and therefore for me it begins and ends with that. I don’t know about “VP of Bullygate” but anyway….Molly is the same drug Welker tested positive for, so it’s recreational.

      • jahndoh says:

        JMHO of course Stanger, I can understand why you “wonder” about him though….

      • stangerx says:

        Of course just your opinion. But when you have to reel out a bunch of excuses for what you do know about a person there is at least a red flag. I did read some of this texts and e-mails though. Unless you want to claim they were faked, that was original source. Best I can put on some of them is “boys being boys.”

  42. stangerx says:

    Matt Moore on how hard he checked other teams in free agency:

    ““Seriously. It’s funny. Everybody talks about, ‘Oh, so and so can go and start here’ or ‘So and so can go and start there,’ which is hardly the case. There are opportunities everywhere. … I never thought about going in banking on being the starter.”

    Unless Tanny goes down and Moore comes on and shows a bunch, think he’s our back-up for years to come.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I wouldn;t mind developing a young guy in a few years
      but its nice to have Moore now

      • stangerx says:

        He is still young. Wouldn’t mind us drafting a real project (say 4th or 5th) to develop and see what happens from there.

      • D says:

        I dont think we have the number of picks now to justify using one on a developmental QB. If we trade back and get extra picks i could see it, but even back before we traded our third away i was thinking of QB as a luxury pick we would have to trade back to get extra picks to make it worth using one on a QB. We probably find a decent project guy in UDFA period. I like Shane Carden a lot, not quite the best deep passer, but he very reliable, makes smart decisions and has a very good short to intermediate game. Ideal backup, imo.

  43. Mike E. says:

    I agree with D. This draft we really don’t have the luxury of taking a QB. We have so many needs as it is, I kinda wish we had another 2 picks.

  44. dcoralsprings says:

    Just a quick stop

    Mike E you are probably right about Jordan, just funny that by the end of last season he was doing LB work.
    That said Piggy does bring up a good point that he may work well into this “new line”
    lots of things to cover w/ or w/o Jordan on the line.

    I had said awhile back I would really like to see us back at a 3/4
    set the d backs into more of a triangle and allow
    Jordan to play almost a monster free roaming type roll
    (think what Saban tried to do w/ JT a few years ago)

    I do believe that Suh has the ability to change everything
    excited to see what this will look like !!!

    gotta go, later

    • The Flying Pig says:

      He’s gonna eat Tom Brady’s liver

      Imagine a scene from the Walking Dead
      then add an image of Bleicheat crying
      And that is what Suh will look like!

  45. Mike E. says:

    DCoral

    I definitely think we have the personnel to play a 3-4. With todays offenses though, you spend so much time in the nickel and dime, that the base defense doesn’t really matter that much. Still, I could see
    MITCHELL – SUH – SHELBY/FEDE
    WAKE – MISI – ? – JORDAN

  46. stangerx says:

    Man — lesson learned. Take a bribe from a drug lord or go pay for play and you are taking a risk, but at least don’t go for the double whammy.
    —————————
    “WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents in an unnamed country had alleged “sex parties” with prostitutes funded by local drug cartels over several years.”

    “The 10 agents – an assistant regional director and nine special agents – had the alleged parties “at government-leased headquarters,” and three of the special agents “were provided money, expensive gifts, and weapons from drug cartel members.”

  47. getterdone says:

    I’ve mentioned this before with the thought that Matt Moore would restructure here.
    I think Connor Halliday might go undrafted due to his season ending compound leg fracture.
    He’s raw, but worth developing. He was setting records in passing yards in the pass heavy offense of Mike Leach @ Wash St. Kid is tall 6’5 with a good accurate arm. I hope no one takes him and he slips thru the cracks….but that’s why I hate that we don’t get any comp picks, not even a 7th. Some other team will likely snag him with a comp pick.

    Also Hutson Mason who played started 1 year in Georgia’s pro style zone read.
    Shane Carden & Taylor Kelly as well could go undrafted.

  48. drg says:

    Piggy, Mike,

    There are some players that don’t qualify to be included in the formula that determines compensatory picks. Not positive, but I don’t think players who are cut count as well as trades. It’s why teams like Baltimore went so hard after a guy like Dumervil because they knew he won’t count. Belicheat is a big believer in high quantity of draft picks to offset the inevitable busts.

    As I remember it, Revis was cut by TB so he would not have counted against the patsies. I think Lafell was also? Kind of a stupid rule if you ask me, but smart teams are taking advantage of it.

    • Mike E. says:

      I think that’s ridiculous. Once they’re cut, they’re free agents, so it really shouldn’t matter.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      That just makes me angry
      But I think you might be right
      Lafell may not count)
      and revis

      but Like Mike said they were free agents

  49. getterdone says:

    Wyoming, yeah I read where Lovelocke was shockingly invited to the combine and turned some heads in the throwing drills next to Winston & Mariota throws. Not sure what that says about Winston & MAriota or maybe Lovelocke has a good arm…lol

    #49ers announce they waived OT Jonathan Martin. Probably didn’t have much support inside the organization without Harbaugh

    Wouldn’t it be awesome if Rex Ryan added Jonathan Martin to Buffalo’s roster? Sorry….I couldn’t help myself.

    Stop fart shaming me!

    lol

  58. stangerx says:

    Very surprised that Martin got cut. At his age and talent level based on where he was drafted, seems he should at least be a solid #3 T.

    Maybe it is like the old saying, “You can move, but you can’t move away from your problems.”

    • getterdone says:

      I think he’s just a horribly scouted prospect by Jeffro once again…Martin has the size, some skill set, but I don’t believe he has the drive to be an NFL player.

  59. getterdone says:

    Goodell can’t stop F’kin with the product!

    NFL.com reports the league could play regular-season games in Germany and Mexico by 2017.
    Albert Breer reports the league is also “starting to look at options to bring some form of preseason football to Mexico,” perhaps even hosting part of a training camp south of the border.

    Philbin: Jonathan, hi its Joe, now that Richie is gone ya think you could handled our locker room environment? We have really worked to change some thing, top to bottom.

    Martin: Yeah coach that sounds great, i think now that Richie’s gone most of those issues might be behind me.

    Philbin: Jon, that’s great, so let me let you talk to Dennis here and he will work out the details.

    Hickey: Hi Jon, so as for what we are offering, we are offering you vet minimum, but you can earn incintives if you let Suh fuck your sister.

    Martin: Excuse me?!

    Hickey: Yeah so, yeah i mean we are talking abotu a million dollar bonus. Great earning potential. Suh heard that you were available and he said he would be willing to give up a little of his bonus to rail your sister. He said he hears she is a squirter and he wanst to “make it rain”.

    Martin: Mommy!!!

    Hickey: Oh nice transition, how did you he rest of your incentive package included your mom. So yeah, an additional million will be available if you let Pouncey and Suh go beginning to end on your mom. You know a little im coming from this direction, he’s coming from the other….So what ya say…

    Martin: *Uncontrollable sobbing*

    Hickey: *talking off receiver* Yeah Steve we got that fat little bitch crying…..So Jon hate to cut it short but….Yeah that’s what we thought you would say you big pussy…..*click*

  62. Mike E. says:

    Cool Try

    We won the offseason, but can we win the regular season?

  63. Jonathan Martin was just another blown draft pick by Jeffy Boy.

    • stangerx says:

      Easy to say now though. He looked pretty good if not great before the blow up and school/family/character-wise had a nice pedigree.

      • He NEVER looked good or great IMO – he was a fat weak guy both physically and mentally. I used to tease Mike E about him cause he was high on him but he got beat a lot.

      • stangerx says:

        I think he did an OK job, especially when Jake went down. Never said he was a world-beater though……just not a bust……until the tray did.

  64. Mike E. says:

    Martin turned out to be a big disappointment, but some other team was going to take him either in the 2nd or 3rd RD.

    • stangerx says:

      We rook him top third of the 2nd round……..he seemed a value pick at that. If there was a Q in my mind it was “why did he fall.” Maybe we learned.

  65. Mike E. says:

    I think the Dion Jordan trade up bothers me the most. We were in a great situation with one 1st RD, two 2nd RD, 2nd two 3rd RD picks, and then it seemed like that draft just unravelled. It was a huge disappointment, with only the hope that Jordan would be a monster, but he’s been monster bust so far.

  66. The Flying Pig says:

    Prior to the draft Martin had a first round ground

    He fell to the 2nd round probably bc most of the NFL did it’s due diligence
    Except our guy
    😦

    But I do recall thinking he was a steal after the draft

  67. Mike E. says:

    Ever notice the Stay-puft man and the Michelin man look eerily similar? I can’t post links on my work PC

  68. Mike E. says:

    This was Martin’s write up on NFL.com before the combine

    Overview

    Jonathan is one of two tackle prospects in this year’s class that could be considered elite, and given the value of the position will be a likely first-round pick because of it. He embodied all that Stanford football was throughout his time there, as he is an aggressive, smart, technically sound prospect who will enter the league at a stage in his development where he should be able to contribute immediately.

    Analysis

    Strengths
    Martin has prototypical starting skills for the tackle position. He missed just two games in his career and is extremely tough. He carries his weight well and is one of the most technically sound prospects in the draft. He has a smooth, efficient pass set that allows him to get a solid base and work from a balanced state. He is powerful and aggressive against the run and a very good foot athlete at his size. Martin was the anchor of a very polished offensive line and is simply an NFL-ready tackle who possesses all the traits.
    Weaknesses
    Martin has a tendency to pop upright on contact and get slightly off balance, usually when slanting in the run game. He isn’t a real powerful or violent puncher, and at times his punches will slow his feet and he can get caught off guard. He isn’t a quick-twitched mover off the snap and could have some issues against the league’s best speed rushers.

      The Jackson is going to be a disappointment at the next level. He looked great in 2013 but he hasn’t looked good since and one scout at senior bowl said in practices he was getting pushed around “like he was on roller skates”

    Of course, but he’s the commish…grow a set of balls and a leader of men, not a follower. Great commissioners are hard to find.

    ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports free agent LB Brandon Copeland has drawn interest from 11 teams since last week’s Veteran Combine, and has four visits scheduled.
    Schefter didn’t report which teams Copeland is visiting. A 2013 undrafted free agent out of Ivy League Penn, Copeland has had stints with the Titans and Ravens, but never appeared in a regular-season game. NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah reports Copeland showed “good speed” at last weekend’s event.
    ____________________________
    Hmm, 11 teams interested. I wonder if Miami is one. Well he’s still only 23, nice size, 6’3 260 which is a lil big, but said to have speed. Maybe someone coaches the light on in his 3rd year. 😉

    how ’bout that dickhead from WVU that said Kentucky was going to be 36-1 after tonight 🙂
    KU 44-18 at the half.

    • New Age says:

      Complete mismatch. WVU is a really bad team if they can’t press you into mistakes and the refs were having none of that tonight. Kentucky is just too good for WVU to even be in their league. It was an awful game to watch so I turned it off at halftime lol.
