Bomar could be really good. I think his character issues are in the past, and if he can find an opportunity in the NFL, he could be good.

Raji was reportedly "unblockable" today at Senior Bowl practice - in both run defense and pass rush there wasn't a single offensive lineman that could block him. He displayed a great combination of size, strength, and quickness and is solidifying his status as the top defensive tackle in the draft. 8-o


I was so hoping the Bucs could get him, but he is going way before we get a shot. He is exactly the player the Bucs need on that defense. We have not been the same since Sapp left :,-(


Would ya settle for Haynesworth instead???

Free Agency

League insiders told us three teams are in the running to sign All Pro defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, who'll be a free agent in three weeks.

The Tennessee Titans will try and resign him and the Detroit Lions will also go hard after Haynesworth. And while both have legitimate chances for his services several people have told us they expect to see Haynesworth wearing a Tampa Bay Buccaneer jersey next season.

The Bucs, who are more than $40-million under the cap, have been making a push towards Haynesworth and are in the best spot to offer him the biggest contract.

Also from TFY:

One of the biggest combine snubs this year was running back Devin Moore of Wyoming. Moore was given high grades from scouts coming into the season then had his best campaign to date.

With the concern that not many scouts would make the trip to Laramie for Wyoming's pro-day to see Moore, his agent came up with an idea that could get Moore better attention then most of the running backs who'll be working out on Saturday at the combine.

Moore will have a private workout for NFL teams on Friday, February 20th, in Indianapolis at a place called the Sports Zone, after all the combine weigh-ins take place. Moore is originally from Indianapolis and NFL rules allow him to hold a private workout there. Moore is presently training in Atlanta and expects to run in the low 4.4-second range at his workout.

good for those of us that would like to draft him for fantasy purposes. Maybe this helps him fly under the radar because he won't have that blazing number like CJ424 did at the combine.

I would love the Bucs to get Haynesworth. I had heard that as well, but I also heard the Titans were close to resigning him, so I am not getting my hopes up yet.

I just saw some clips of Hakeem Nicks, WR. Great hands- reaching behind to catches passes off his cheeks. Wow. Anyone have any opinions of him?

Sure. Just go back and read the preceeding 25 pages.

Kidding.

I'd say he's the #5 wr, ranked behind Crabtree, Maclin, Harvin, and DHB. 6'1" and 210, he runs about a 4.6 in the 40. Could be the best possession wr in this draft.

The combine in starting, which means time for players to start being overinflated because they run fast or lift a lot.

So you don't value the combine much?

IMO, the combine has become a test that Agents have figured out how have their clients pass. They have these guys all train for the certain drills and they do well at them. Add to it that it seems people become so crazy because a guy runs fast or benches a certain number and you have guys that get drafted way higher than they should be. People forget what a player has done in an actual game during game conditions and focus on some guys time they ran a certain distance. I think the combine helps for guys that were unknown because of the school they played at, think DRQ, but it is given too much value overall/
