Not many Div II guys get drafted and gven his size, I guess they figured no one else was gonna take a chance on him so there was no need to draft him if they can grab him as a FA - they gambled and won. I agree with knap that the kid has a shot at making the team at least as a a special teamer given his work ethic and skill set.

21 tds last year. Short yardage back and not a whole lot of movement but huge legs and powerful.

As for where he was from, I knew he was from Liberia...I didn't know he spent time in or around Buffalo.

Basically my point. I mean, it would be great if this guy comes into the league and does great things, but the chances are very small considering the fact that nobody drafted the guy. My point was basically that there was a reason he wasn't drafted (yeah, I was being sarcastic...) :-b

I can't believe the idiotic Lions didn't sign the hometown boy Caulcrick. They need a FB badly and this guy has better size and speed than the dude they drafted in the 5th rnd. Jehuu is a bruiser who has a fair shot to be a servicable FB.

Agreed the odds are against him, but not being drafted doesn't mean you're not good enough to play in the NFL - just ask Kurt Warner, Antonio Gates, Priest Holmes, Willie Parker, Wes Welker, London Fletcher, Jake Delhomme, Rod Smith, Adewale Ogunleye, etc, etc....
