    Maurice Drew worth a look?

    Post Combine Post

    If for some reason the Vikes don't go with RB in the first round, he might be worth a look. He's raised his stock, but still not looked at as a first rounder. The guy really impressed at the scouting combine, running the 40 in 4.36 (wasn't that around what Troy W ran last year, and that was supposed to be one of the reasons we drafted him--speed?). If you've watched any of the combine, the guy looked like a beast--his legs were the size of tree trunks! He could be steal. Not to mention, his old coach at UCLA, Eric Bieniemy, is our current RBs coach. Eric could be influential in a possible pickup. Thoughts?

    I also posted that Bieniemy being the team's new RB coach could be a factor if we miss out on LenDale, DeAngelo, or Maroney. It might happen.

    Re: Maurice Drew worth a look?

    Hes gonna get snatched up quickly in the third bye someone. Hes got excellent return skills..infact hes known more for that then being a full time RB. If for some reason we dont address RB needs in FA or the first or second round of the draft...then I wouldnt mind us getting him.

    Anyone know what O. Smith, Moore, or Fason ran in the 40?--as they were all later round picks. Just curious. 4.36 is really fast for a RB. That's WR/CB speed.

    I know this doesn't seem related, but what's going on with Brian Calhoun? Has he made any waves at the Combine?

    Moore runs about a 4.6, Fason has been known to run a 4.4 and Oterrio has it all, the 4.4 speed, the vision, the exeleration, the elusiveness and size. Also a great Reciever, but he's throwing it away with drugs, sad.

    Didn't Onterrio used to call himself the SOD? Steal Of the Draft or something like that.. I think he meant it to mean that he was a steal at a fourth round pick, but it really means HE stole a fourth round pick from any franchise foolhardy enough to try and turn him around.

    Damn that ganja! I know, Onterrio has it all--it is too bad he's "pissing" it all away!! Although it's funny that marijuana is looked at as such a bad thing (obviously because of its "illegalness"). Steroids I could see, but marijuana is hardly a performance enhancing drug on the field.
