    My friend who goes to WVU sent me the article, and I was impressed, so I posted it.

    525 power clean is ridiculous, the olympic record is 580.

    So i don't care who we have already, I'd rather have this guy.
    Just because a guy can lift 525 pounds doesn't mean he'll be a great football player. It just means he can lift 525 pounds.

    Does Brock Lesnar ring a bell?

    Yeah, but

    That's at the college level, what about what hre can do at the pro level?

    Is Reggie Bush getting the kind of yards he did in college?

    Is McKinnie still not allowing sacks?

    Not being stopped for a loss simply means he an gain a yard consitantly. Although his college stats look decent. But then again, it's college, not pro ball.

    He's not gonna be carrying the ball. I included the "never stopped for a loss" to show his power. He obviously loves contact(broken facemasks), blocks for the nation's best rushing attack, he's extremely powerful, and he plays top level college football, something Lesnar never did. He's a fullback, he won't handle the ball much, and there's no doubt in my mind he's going to be an amazing blocking fullback. Nothing says otherwise, or am I missing something?

    We could get Jacob Hester of LSU much cheaper...and he can run the ball with authority to boot!
    Besides, he already looks good in purple and gold!

    Schmitt also has 4.5 speed.
    He is what a fullback is supposed to be.

    Re: Our Next Fullback: Owen Schmitt

    No doubt Schmitt a beast and a great blocking fullback. And he will go high in the draft. But is that what this team needs right now?
    RIGHT NOW, out biggest need is a couple of offensive linemen on the right side to protect our passer IMHO. After that possibly a QB depending on how TJ comes on. So I would guess that Schmitt will be long gone by the time the Vikes would be interested in drafing him.
