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

A little small for TE I would think?

Re: ILB Robert McCune

Saw a pic of him on Skins.com and he is a total monster. I can't believe he's that fast!!! With his military background, he'll take to coaching very well. He'll scare the hell out of opponents for sure!!! Looks like a great pick and with his age he should be beyond the kiddy immature faze and ready to go!!

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

It cant hurt the special teams.

I still think some of these picks might be projects for HB or TE.

Re: ILB Robert McCune

McCune and Broughton were GREAT late round picks. I can see both of them contributing big time.

From what I have seen of him he is a punishing guy between the tackles. He should be a great compliment to Portis as long as he stays healthy. He also has great hands out of the backfield. He is a huge guy. I was completely blown away when I saw him run at the combine were he timed at 4.55.

Re: ILB Robert McCune

I don't know anything about this guy, but I like the pick from what I've read. Luckily he'll be coming into the league with plenty of maturity, he could be a great team leader eventually, and he seems to have the raw talent.

The only thing that kind of concerns me is he's already 26. Typically, how do older players coming in do? How is their longevity? Normally longer/the same than a player that comes in at 21/22?

Re: ILB Robert McCune

Broughton played HB in college but will more then likely be a FB short yardage back

Re: ILB Robert McCune

At 26 years old... this guy better not take too long to develop. Otherwise he may not have much of a career.

Re: ILB Robert McCune

The thing I like (and I'm sure Gibbs does as well) is that with a military background, McCune is used to following instruction explicitly, every time. I expect him to push for serious minutes, and perhaps get some starts. Gibbs loves a player who practices well, and this guy's background suggests he'll do just that.

Re: ILB Robert McCune

I'm excited about McCune and to a lesser extent White. Question is, why make an offer to re-sign Cartwright when we're tageting FBs?
