Source: Sam Houston State RB Timothy Flanders to visit Saints

National Football Post*By*Aaron Wilson1 hour ago

Sam Houston*State All-American running backTimothy Flanders*is going to visit the*New Orleans Saints, according to a league source.

Flanders rushed for 1,430 yards and 14 touchdowns last season.

He fnished his career with 5,664 rushing yards and 420 points scored with 66 rushing touchdowns.

Flanders is the all-time leading rusher in Southland Conference history.

He began his career at Kansas State where he redshirted before transferring to Sam Houston State.

He rushed for 2,135 yards and 34 touchdowns as a high school senior at Midwest City High in Oklahoma.

The 5-foot-9, 210-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout, improving upon his 4.75 clocking at the NFL scouting combine.

At the combine, he bench pressed 225 pounds 20 times and had a 32-inch vertical leap and a 9-5 broad jump.

pro day
4.56 in the 40
1.55 in 10? not bad at all

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

I had posted this in response to Oak's thread on WR's & thought I would drop it on here to get my thoughts out there. I like the input from Hagan714, Danno, and jeanpierre as well and for the most part the feeling is mutual. But my post is more offensive(WR) focused. Here it is......


"Agreed. I know some people here are high on Jordan Matthews & others in the 2nd-3rd Rd, but i feel like Allen Robinson(6'3, 215lb) out of Penn St is someone we should really be targeting in the 2nd. He may not be the biggest name but the kid is my favorite player in this years draft. Reminds me of a combination of Josh Gordon & Jordy Nelson ...little slower than Gordon but has big game speed and similar in the aspect of Size/Big play making ability & that he will be a 21 year old rookie. Allen is a true # 1 wr and can go up and make the big catch(see michigan game, etc.) something we really struggled with in the playoffs and season outside of Jimmy. someone who can step in right away year one and contribute, then be our #1 the following year. I honestly believe he can be a pro bowler and top wr in this league and wouldnt mind if he was selected with our # 27 overall pick just to make sure we grab him although id much rather go CB/LB 1st rd and get him in the 2nd.

Watch the kids tape....in the last 2 years he was consecutively honored as Big Ten receiver of the year while putting up a total of:

174 rec, 2,450 yds, 17 TD

This was also accomplished in a pro style offense with Mcgloin throwing to him, would love to see what Brees and Sean can do with him.

Other WR guys id like to see in the black & gold AFTER the 1st Rd would include:

Cody Latimer - Indiana
Jordan Matthews - Vanderbilt
Jarvis Landry - LSU
Martavis Bryant - Clemson
Brandon Coleman - Rutgers
Jeff Janis - Saginaw Valley St.
Jared Abbrederis - Wisconsin
Ryan Grant - Tulane
Donte Moncrief - Ole Miss.
Chris Boyd - Vandy
L'Damien Washington - Mizzou

And of course i'd be thrilled wit ODB, Davante, Cooks, Watkins, Evans, Benjamin but they're more likely to go round 1 & My post is targeting guys we could grab round 2 & so on.

Thoughts? Would like to hear some of yalls favorite WR's are and where you would like to draft them."

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

I'd post my top 140 prospects if anyone would be interested? Like to make my own draft board to see value that falls into later rds(rd 5 or later) Im big on the draft and keep track of each player to mark off my board and where they land

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

I'm starting to really warm up to Ryan Shazier, but as an ILB not OLB.

+1. agreed, I'd be absolutely good with that. Me & my brother were saying the same thing. Id like him a whole lot more as an ILB in a 3-4. We're definitely lacking a whole lot more in that area more so than OLB like the media thinks, especially athleticism wise
