            The championship comes from adding linebackers AFTER the draft. That is where you find your starters at one of your weakest positions.

            We don't need LBs or DBs. We'll put our kick returners and extra WRs there!

            1) UM WR Rashawn Scott (can confirm this). 52 catches, 695 yards, 5 TDs last season.
            2) Boise State LB Tyler Gray. 51 tackles, 3 sacks, 8 tackles for loss, 2 forced fumbles, one blocked punt last season.
            3) Iowa kicker Marshall Koehn. 47 for 53 on extra points last season (after going 38 for 38 the year before) and 16 for 20 on field goals last season.
            4) Florida Tech tight end Gabe Hughes. 32 catches, 566 yards, 3 TDs last season.
            5) FAMU LB Akil Blount. 75 tackles, two INTs (both returned for TDs) last season. Son of Hall of Famer Mel Blount.
            6) Kentucky DE Farrington Huguenin. 52 tackles, 1.5 sacks last season.
            7) Temple WR Brandon Shippen. 20 catches for 288 yards and 1 TD last season. He's 5-11.
            8) San Jose State long snapper Ryan DiSalvo.
            9) Louisville MLB and former Homestead High standout James Burgess, according to Steve Jones of the Louisville Courier Journal. Burgess had 90 tackles, 9 TFL, one INT, 4 passes defensed last season. Has 260 tackles in his career, plus four sacks, three fumble recoveries and seven picks. Had 43 career starts and was third team All-ACC last season.
            Burgess, 6 feet and 236 pounds, told the Courier-Journal that he was shocked not to be invited to the Combine. His height likely contributed heavily to him being undrafted. But he has good mobility was highly productive in college. He will be reunited with former college teammate DeVante Parker.
            10) Toledo center Ruben Carter.
            11) Pittsburgh cornerback Lafayette Pitts. A four-year starter who had 30 tackles, 1 sack and one INT last season. He had four career picks and 25 passes defended. His agent told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette that 16 teams called and he had four offers.

            In the words of Alpha........................."Championship!"

              How many damn WR's did we take?? We have a glut at that position now.

                Not for nothing, before the draft outside of Landry and Parker who else got you excited? Stills is better in the #4 spot than the #3. Miami didn't have a #3 on the roster. Day one the starting receivers will be Landry, Parker, and Carroo. I know you don't like it now, but you will like Carroo.

              James Burgess is a guy I like... He will lay a lick on ball carriers. He's a bit under sized and a tad slow footed, but game. He is not a MLB nor good against the run though.

              Don't let Burgess' size fool you -- he drills ball carriers into the ground. The Miami native is explosive to the play and brings bad intentions, especially when he has someone lined up in the backfield (10 tackles for loss in 2014, 9.5 in 2015). But the 2015 third-team All-ACC honoree also shows a knack for reading quarterbacks and making plays on the ball, with seven career interceptions and 13 pass breakups. Burgess also has NFL genes, with his father, James, Sr. a Miami alum and two-year player for the San Diego Chargers. His uncle, Willie Middlebrooks, was a first-round pick for the Broncos and also played in the CFL.

              PRO DAY RESULTS

              40-yard dash: 4.61 and 4.65 seconds
              Vertical: 32 1/2 inches
              Broad jump: 10 feet, 1 inch
              Short shuttle: 4.47 seconds
              3-cone drill: 7.06 seconds
              Bench: 21 reps of 225 pounds


              STRENGTHS Good acceleration from a standstill. Reads quarterback’s eyes and accelerates into the passing lane to defend the pass. Batted down two Jameis Winston throws and intercepted another in 2014. Has 19 passes defensed over last three years. Fast flow to the football and able to outrace linemen looking to cut him off. Can make himself skinny and shoot downhill making tackles for losses. Has athleticism to change direction quickly and re­ignite his pursuit. Talented in man coverage with ability to run downfield with running backs. Made one-­handed snag of a Deshaun Watson pass this year.

              WEAKNESSES Small for the position with questionable play toughness. Lack of physicality against the run showed up with 12 broken tackles and 32 missed tackles during three years as starter. Lacks decisiveness and play strength in attacking runs between the tackles. Run around linebacker losing gap leverage because of it. Too easily engulfed by linemen. Able to flow quickly to the ball when he diagnoses it, but his instincts are marginal at best. Will go under blocks and lose pursuit angles. Average awareness in space as zone defender.

              DRAFT PROJECTION Undrafted free agent

              BOTTOM LINE Three-year starter lacking the size and toughness to win against the run, but above average production and man cover talent against the pass. The tape shows a player who is too often confused and out of position to be relied upon as a starter, but his pursuit speed and ability in the passing game gives him a shot at making a roster as an outside linebacker if he can prove to be a special teams winner.

              Like Doughty, another local kid they are tossing a bone to.

                Nole, any thoughts on G/C Ruben Carter?


                • #11
                  What about LB Eric Striker who went undrafted?

                    I did like him.....picked him late in a couple of those mock drafts I did. Not surprised to see him end up in Buffalo.

                • #12
                  Nevermind, he signed with the Bills.


                  • #13
                    LB's Terrence Smith and Kris Frost are still unsigned.
