That's what I've heard. The combine has morphed into an event primarily for the media and fans. The main thing the teams get out of it is a networking opportunity.

I love S Trevon Moehrig, but I donít think heís actually the best scheme fit if Marcus Williams leaves. We run a single-high safety scheme and the best fit at that FS position is Richie Grant or Jevon Holland.

Scheme fit is king folks. NFL front offices are not looking at some draft nerdís big board when they pick the best player available. We picked Cesar Ruiz because he is an incredibly agile center who fits into our zone blocking scheme. He was miscast as a guard this past season because he didnít have the full offseason and preseason to get down all of the protection calls.

Good range & instincts. RG had a very solid, productive senior bowl week. I think he should add more bulk at the next level.

He could be a 2nd/3rd round gem for a team. See Antoine Winfield Jr - Bucs. mid 2nd rounder and immediate impact player.

Actually, Trevon has the makeup of an outstanding Strong Safety as well - my point is he could play either, or be tremendous in a Cover-2...
