How Bout Dem Cajuns and Dem Wave!

Ragin Cajuns finished up with their historic 11-3 record with a bowl win vs a good Miami OH team. The Green Wave finished 7-6 in a tough conference and capped it by beating the Hattiesburg Favres in the Armed Forces Bowl.

Hard to get any love when you're down the road from Red Stick, but I loved watching both these teams this year even if Tulane beat my mom & grandpaw's alma mater.

Good job to all the players, coaches & staff to both pretty cool small conference schools.

There are some decent pro prospects on that Ragin Cajuns roster...

He's going have to. Brees can't run and his arm strength for the deep ball isn't there.Opposing D's will eat our lunch, the dink and dunk will work to a point but our D better be top notch with a top notch run game for Brees to be effective.I get the frustation. We need a thumper and Kamara(who has a totally different skill set) ain't it. Nothing new to me I've wanted a Henry type back for years that is where Brees and Kamara could thrive. A 2 back set with Brees under C would open up play action keepin D's honest. I'm really surprized he didn't run more of a 2 back set with Murry

Trey Ragas, RB, Cajuns - 5'10" 218 lbs. 3rd-5th Rd projection. Can catch outta the backfield, too. His Combine will only make his stock go up as I dont really see him falling past the 6th regardless of a bad Combine.

Raymond Calais, RB, Cajuns - 5'9" 185 lbs. 4th-6th Rd projection. Smallish but versatile, just not as much as Ragas from what I saw. Interesting to see what his measurables will be.

Cajuns OLine was pretty good and nearly all of them showed versatility playing in different positions. 1 or 2 will be late round picks.

Thakarius Keyes, CB, Wave - 6'1" 200 lbs. 4th-6th Rd projection. Raw but good size. Good open field tackler but needs some work in technique & ball skills.

Mitchell has great size 5'11" 217 lbs and is a junior. Should come back for senior year and be a pretty good back this coming season...all he does is score TDs.

2 star recruit outta high school but I think he lost a star with missing games due to injury. He's worked his way up so he still has good upside. They will lose the senior Calais, so if Ragas (R-Jr) comes back he and Mitchell will be a great tandem.

I'd like to see a Ragas/Mitchell backfield but I dont think the Sun Belt would...2 big fast dudes behind a good line. That OLine is losing their RG & LT to graduation, so we'll see how well they do replacing them.

6' 0", 4.7 40? he knows the game, but lightening hitting twice? Brees had other measurables that offset the height...
