Re: Round 7: Nehemiah Broughton, Jr., FB Citadel

I think White will be a HB and a short yardage RB. This could be the end of Ladell Betts.

ILB Robert McCune

Did anyone else see this monster on the NFL network's coverage of the combine? WOW! He ran a 4.50, weighs in at nearly 250 lbs., and looks like the biggest, baddest, and most cut monster I've ever seen. The downside is he is 26 years old (he served in the Army before college) and a little raw.

With his size and speed, he could be a terror is coached up. I honestly think this guy is the best pick we made (in terms of value and risk v. reward).

What do others think?

Re: ILB Robert McCune

I'm just glad we kind of have an answer to middle linebacker... at least more so then before.

Re: Newberry

Former basketball player. Has the size of a TE @ 6-1 and 234. Runs in the 4.75 range and is considered to be very athletic.

I'm thinking there is our TE project pick. I wonder how his hands are?

Re: ILB Robert McCune

I saw it Ramseyfan. He was HUGE. And he was the fastest LB at the combine. I think that his military history is a major plus. This just proves that he is a hard worker and he has that mentality and high motor.

Cant wait to see him replace in the middle killing Cowboys.

Re: ILB Robert McCune

I'm glad we took a MLB incase things fall through with Lemar Marshall; and just to have anohter guy to sub in and out of there. Outside of Carlos Rogers, this is the pick that made the most sense to me as well.

Re: ILB Robert McCune

I don't have a link to any article, but here's a bit more information.

McCune served three years in the Army; serving in Korea and Kuwait. He's knicknamed "The Hammer" because he delivered so many punishing hits in college. He ran track in college (explaining his extremely fast 40-time). He was his school's (Louisville) powerlifting champion two years in a row. He is a VERY old junior in college and due to his age, he came out of college "early." Many scouts feel he has all the tools to be a monster, but he's raw. If he's coached up right, we're talking about a stud interior linebacker. If he doesn't develop, he'll fall flat on his face.

My guess is the guy will make the team, contribute on special teams and pass-rushing downs, and become a more regular contributor within two years (when he's 28).

Dude is sick, sick, sick looking....he was probably the most cut guy I saw at the combine. Also, I knew he was one of the fastest linebackers, but I didn't know he was the fastest! At 4.5, he's almost as fast as Carlos Rodgers (4.45), but weighs 50 pounds more!

Re: ILB Robert McCune

I'm really liking this pick. Sounds like a replacement for Barrow / Pierce. Gregg Williams should be able to mold/groom him.

Re: ILB Robert McCune

comments from Gibbs:

On selecting Louisville linebacker Robert McCune:

“We went down to Louisville to work everybody out down there and Robert is a little bit different in that he has served overseas. He is a service guy. He is older because of that, he is 26 years old. We really like him from the standpoint that obviously a spot on our football team where somebody could make our team is middle linebacker. When you talk to him this guy is all service, it is yes sir and no sir. It is impressive from that stand point. He has also been as a sophomore the special teams play of the year at Louisville. He led the team in tackles last year. We think we have someone there that is a real candidate to make our football teams in a lot of ways.”

On what position he would play:

“For us and our football team middle linebacker is where we are going to start him. He is extremely fast and really well built. He is 6-0 and 245 lbs and is a 4.5 guy. He is probably the most impressive person I may have ever seen just standing there.”

On if age was a factor at all in so many teams passing on him:

“I think a lot of people probably backed off of him because of age. He is starting his career off at 26. He is somebody we felt that is really a value. I really trust Dale’s (Lindsey) judgment on linebackers. He had him much higher in the draft and we thought he was going to go much higher. I feel real good about that.”

On when they made the trade for the 5th round pick if this is who was on their radar:

“We actually had four guys there that we were thinking in this round.”

And he did the second most reps of 225. He had 34 and Tyjuan Hagler from Cincinnati had one more. By the way the Colts drafted him.

Re: Round 7: Nehemiah Broughton, Jr., FB Citadel

I think we're gearing up for some serious heavy jumbo around the goal line
