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: Newberry

he could play SS, TE (though i doubt it, blocking and hands arent his strengths) OLB, FB, or ILB (gibbs said he thought more ILB cause he's supposed to be really smart)... he played OLB in college because the personnel they had for that position sucked, but he also played FB i believe.

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

I think ALL of our day two picks are projects to play special teams while waiting to see how they do at RB/FB/H-B/TE etc... (ILB for both LBs, though one ALSO played FB in college too)

Re: ILB Robert McCune

Hell I saw that guy on Total Access, and I just want to say Hell Yeah. Im extatic about getting him in there. The military background, size and speed...who cares how old he is. He's still younger than Barrow. Football players arent ancient at 30. I think that guy was a steal and I can't believe we got him. He left an impression on me when NFLTA was showing film on him. Wow. That made my day.

Re: ILB Robert McCune

I think I will buy a McCune jersey. Hopefully he gets #54 like he was in college. Clifton Smith will just hand it over after he tells him he will snap him in half it he doesnt.

Re: ILB Robert McCune

I think we really picked up one goal line and short yardage HB in addition to one FB rather than two FB's. The kid from UCLA carried the ball quite a bit and didn't do much blocking. The kid from the Citadel seems to be a monster blocker.
