surprised me. this is a wild pick from what I have read. they must know something about him.
Usama Young - 5111, 196, 4.39, Kent St.
All Mac second team, Young's Pro Day:
40 in 4.39 and 4.40 seconds. He also notched a 43-inch vertical, a 10-foot-11 broad, a 4.31 short shuttle, a 6.65 three-cone drill and 15 bench presses.

the nfl site has a good write up on him. okay time to scratch our heads again like last year

I love how espn has done a video rundown on every player drafted in the 3rd eound EXCEPT the Saints player. All we get is a 30 second discussion.

One thing I liked in his write up is special teams wedge buster maybe a gunner some day. Some wieghts, good southern eating and coaching he could be a nice addition. But here we go again like last year. who? now? what? lol

Coach P likes "character guys", so he must fit the mold. Too bad Cincy can't figure out what "character" is.

Like you guys said, Payton knows what he is doing. It's weird thinking that we have so much faith in the FO and CS.
