Next time go ahead and answer yas, that\'s what it\'s all about. I admit I had to look it up too, but the college gave it away. I assumed there wasn\'t many Rice LBs on our roster. lol Okay, here\'s the next one:
Started 24 games for a Big 10 school...Had his best year as a senior in 2000, when he started every game at either inside or outside linebacker and finished second on the team with 87...Also had eight tackles for losses, four sacks, five quarterback pressures and two passes defensed...Split time in 1999 between inside and outside linebacker and started eight games (two at ILB and six at OLB)...Registered 63 tackles and finished third on the team with seven tackles for losses...Academic All-Big Ten selection in 1998...Started first two games of season before injuring ankle...Returned but re-injured ankle...Finished season with nine tackles in six games...Played on special teams as a true freshman in 1997

Ok. Former Saint:

High School
Big East/ACC All Northeast Team....USA Today Connecticut Player of the Year....senior year stats: 2,139 rushing yds and 25 TDs.....team captain....career totals: 4,541 yds and 53 TDs....



Academics
Majoring in Child and Family Studies at Syracuse.....



Stats ‘97 - 1 carry, 1 yd, 1.0 avg, 1 TD....’96 - 54 carries, 223 yds, 4.1 avg, 3 TDs....’95 - 62 carries, 223 yds, 3.6 avg., 5 TDs....’94 - 11 carries, 49 yds, 4.5 avg., 0 TDs....Totals: 128 carries, 496 yds, 3.9 avg, 9 TDs.



Summary
He is an outstanding prospect with a limited background at DS, but he is certainly exciting as an athlete. He only has 1 year of experience at DS, but he has made the most of it. His Indy numbers are outstanding, and although he is somewhat been perceived as a straightline speed guy, his SS of 3.94 indicates that he does have COD and the ability to adjust on the move. He is much more natural than one might think with his limited background, and he shows excellent range and cover abilities, especially in zone defenses. He is willing to come up vs. the run, and he has already developed into a good openfield hitter that will make some big plays. He flies to the football and appears to be very competitive and aggressive. He will need work in m/m cover situations, and he has not been asked to do a lot in terms of hips and turns and covering WRs. He certainly has the ability to improve in this area, and with additional experience, he will become more instinctive in the passing game, and get a better jump on the ball. He also has a excellent background as a special teams performer, which should more than take care of his paycheck on the NFL level while he is developing. This is a guy with a huge upside that could develop into an outstanding NFL DS, and at the very worst, he could be an NFL team\'s special teams captain, and a contributor in the secondary. Our guess is he will become the former and will be a steal on draft day for some lucky team.

hahahahahahaha. Took some research, but Tesucky Jones right? Where did you get all that info? That was pretty deep for a draft pick from that long ago. If I am wrong, I reserve the right to edit this. lol

No need to edit, Whodi. It is indeed T-buck. I was hoping it might take a bit longer; I\'m glad you had to do a little checking.

I don\'t remember where I found that info. I was trying to find something on Vaughn Johnson or Sam Mills, but I couldn\'t. If I find the link again, I\'ll send it to you.

T-buck doesn\'t sound that bad there, does he?
