Re: Anyone hear we signed J.Lumsden?

Just found this link. This guy looks like a pretty good pick up. Watch his CFL highlights. I realize it's not the NFL, but just watch the power and speed this kid has. Give him some time during the mini camps and training camp I'll bet this kid makes the team. He seems to have very good hands and a quick burst. Preseason will be a good measuring stick. Just check out the link and decide for yourself.

Re: Anyone hear we signed J.Lumsden?

Also found this article

Will the NFL Give Lumsden a Chance?
He's a great package of size, speed and running ability, comparable to any running back who is trying to be drafted by the NFL this year. But, he played in Canada, and he's white, so what will become of Jesse Lumsden? Will the NFL ignore his talent, as it does all other white running backs?

A record breaker in Canada, the 6'2 1/2" 226 pound Lumsden was not invited to the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. Instead he trained very hard in Arizona and recently worked out privately for several teams, including Indianapolis, St. Louis, Carolina and Seattle. Published reports from Canada, while not divulging details of the workout, indicate that Lumsden ran in the 4.45 to 4.50 range in the 40 yard dash. If so, that would give him a combination of size and speed comparable to the best black running backs eligible for the draft this year.

But while the black running backs with such talent will go in the first round, will Lumsden be drafted at all? The unwritten rule in the racially segregated NFL is that whites are only capable of blocking, kicking and throwing, no matter how much athletic talent and ability they may have for other positions. Luke Staley, the 2001 Doak Walker Award winner as the college football's best running back, has been out of the NFL for two years as not a single team would sign him even as a backup. We'll find out soon if Lumsden is to have the same fate.

Lumsden's dad was a star back in the early 80s in the CFL. I believe he won a couple of Grey Cups with Warren Moon in Edmonton.

Jesse was offered a full scholarship to play at Wake Forest, but turned it down to stay in Canada. Maybe he'll surprise us

Re: Anyone hear we signed J.Lumsden?

I was impressed with his speed,thats about it,his tackle breaking ability was so-so,the college game wasnt impressive at all,especially considering his team was up big and they were still stopping him,I think he only had 1 td,maybe 2 in all of his highlights,and thats not good when his website would only be showing his best runs,but the skins have watched more film on him then i have and they should be a better evaluator of talent,i hope the kid makes it

Re: Anyone hear we signed J.Lumsden?

looks like he'll be returning punts and trying to fill the h-back spot that manuel white failed miserably at last offseason... he's blocking is decent, if he has hands he might be alright.

Failed miserably?

I don't think you can say Manny White failed miserably. He got hurt and placed on IR. He didn't even get a chance to show what he could do. Don't write him off yet, Lumsden will be another body to come in and compete with guys like Manny White.

Yeah, and they usually pick up some grammatical skills on the way to law school, too.

Re: Anyone hear we signed J.Lumsden?

I dont know if you guys have watched his highlights films, but he wont run away from most guys, but he has good feet and isnt afraid to block or lay a hit on would-be tacklers.

I know one thing, he will be playing his heart out every play and seems like a true Gibbs style of player.

Maybe you missed the part about him running a 4.5 40. Thats actually pretty fast for a RB. And I think he probably will run away from most defenders. I know it was just the CFL but this kind has a real burst through the hole and is a load in the open field. Other than that I agree with everything else you said. :thumb:
