Diamond in the rough.

Not much news out there so I thought I'd post a fun question.

Did Gibbs and company find a draft day diamond in the rough this year and if so, who will it be?

Last year I think that clearly it was Cooley. Taylor doesn't count cause we all expected him to be good as the first rounder.

So, who could it be?

Re: Diamond in the rough.

I know that we traded alot to draft him. But Mr. Gibbs seems to think highly of Campbell. After that, I would like to carbon copy another post, and point out that Nemo was predicted to be 3-4 rounds. The only down side to the 250 lb full back, is that he is not incredibly elusive. WHO THE HELL WANTS A FULLBACK TO BE ELUSIVE?


Think Mike Alstott, with a stiffer neck.

Re: Diamond in the rough.

I don't consider Cooley exactly a diamond in a rough. Didn't he lead all TE's in receiving yards as a senior in college?

Re: Diamond in the rough.

5tds from a 3rd rounder when you've got the 30th passing game in the league is still a great find...

mccune this year hopefully, maybe nemo too. campbell is another candidate but he went high and i doubt he'll play for a few years at least, so i'm discounting him.

Re: Diamond in the rough.

Cooley did an amazing job without doubt, however, everyone knew he was a talent coming out of school just scared to take a guy from Utah State I suppose.

Wasn't it 6TDs? Which is even more impressive. He lead the team as a rookie.

Your right. Maybe I should have said something like "Better than expected". Anyway, I think that Cooley was the diamond. A third round pickup delivered 6 TDs as a rookie. Even more impressive is that Gibbs didn't realize what he had in Cooley until 3/4 of the way through the season, and still the Gibbs game plan did not stress getting passes to the H-Back.

You never know, they may have a need for an arm chair QB (or is that Brunnel's new position?).

Re: Diamond in the rough.

Everyone is getting me pumped up about Nehemiah Broughton (sp?). I haven't seen any game film of him, but everyone's getting me to believe that he could become the breakout rookie.

Think Mike Alstott, with a stiffer neck.
remember, jerome bettis wasnt elusive as he is now when he came into the league at 250+ either. and broughton played HB college not FB. the NFL scouts put broughton in the class of FB because of his weight, (same with manuel white). NEMO could be another BUS because of his height (5'11") which i love for RB's. I dont like white as a short yardage back because of his height at 6'4", that means his knees are very high off the ground. NEMO at 5'11" is short and at 250lbs is BIG, and i hope hope hope we use him alot more than expected. even though he "looks stiff", you cant argue at 5'11" 250 he cant be a force to reckon with

Re: Diamond in the rough.

and when i said bettis wasnt elusive, i didnt mean he couldnt run, he just couldnt "dodge tackles". but he would smash your ass to get where he wanted. i just know this because im huge ND fan and especially the reggie brooks and jerome bettis days. whata hell of a 1 2 punch. to bad brooks didnt do squat for us, i was so pumped when we got him too. but in college brooks was a beast. i remember one play that will never be topped in nfl or college; brooks ran agaisnt michigan one game back in '91 or '92, and on one play brooks broke like 6 tackles, BUT... he broke six smashing tackles and the last one right before the goaline he got hit so hard he passed out right after staying on his feet and crossing the goaline. he was knocked out in the endzone literally for about a minute or so, it was the best play and wish i had some kind of film to show you guys. anyway, it was great and it turned out to be poop for us.

Re: Diamond in the rough.

I am not sure on the drafting, but in the offseason aquisitions, I like Prileau (sp) and Holdman.

When I heard of the Holdman aquisition, I had the same grin and feeling from last offseason with the pick up of Washington.
