Boehringer ran the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds, posted a 39-inch vertical and posted an impressive time of 6.65 seconds in the three-cone drill.
And at 6'4" 220+; that's amazing!

Re: DAS WUNDERKIND: Are Saints Interested in German Star WR?

I always gonna root a little extra for any European players and this kid really intrigues me. That size/speed combination is extremely hard to find.

He has moved from a very low level of competition to being the best WR in the best league in Europe in a very short time. That tells med he has a pretty good football IQ.

I would love for us to take a flyer on him late. I think he is somebody that Brees could make really good.


Sow how good is the GFL? Its a little hard to give a straight answer to that. You will read some articles suggesting that the competition doesn't come up to DIII level and so on. The reality thou is that you have a ton of really really good football players over here in Europe, plenty of who could compete at the DII and DIII levels and quite a few that will do well in the FBS too. A team here is quite likely to have a uneven roster thou. Kind of like in high school where you have a couple of athletic stars that get the D1 offers than a bunch of hard working guys that get the D2 and D3 offers and then you have the rest to fill out the roster.

Most players over here are not paid but have regular jobs. Usually the only paid players are import players (usually North Americans).

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.

Well it will probably cost us a draft pick to do so.
