    That was a great read as was the bottom link. And validates alot of the things I was feeling about certain prospects.

    Gotta love what they said about Gronko. "Faster Jeremy Shockey"....hes going to make some team VERY happy.

    Thanks for the link Hookem-----I almost felt like I was there listening in on the conversation. Great stuff-----especially now during the dead-time waiting for the draft.

    The scout in the old article from the NFC South sounds like the same guy in the current article.That means he's a scout from NO because they are the ony NFC South team outside the top 20. Plus he said Tebow won't go later than 33. They draft 32. Who is Drew Brees's backup anyway?

    You may be on to something. He also mentions someone moving up to get McCoy with a wink and a smile.

    Mark Brunell is right behind him, but Chase Daniel (Mizzou) is the developmental guy.

    If he's really a scout, then he has little impact on the actual draft. Lombardi over at the national football post had some interesting thoughts on this a couple weeks ago.

    Two things found interesting:

    He indirectly compliments Cody there. It seems to me like just about every professional scout I've read has a better view of Cody than half of this board. Maybe he is in better shape than he looks?


    I don't think this is the Saints scout. If McCoy is going in the 20s and he is hinting that his team wants him it implies his team is drafting in the 20s. Looking at the teams in the 20s, I wonder if maybe Dallas would take him? Romo hasn't gotten it done and McCoy is a local boy after all.

    Brunell is a FA and is visiting the Jets. Just FYI

    It's unlikely Brunell stays with the Saints this year. He's a free agent right now.

    I don't know that it's so much an "indirect" compliment as it is a "relative" compliment. He's comparing fat kids to fat kids, so really, there are no winners in that statement.

    The phrase goes up and gets him means a team would trade up into the 20's so no it's not a team already with a pick in the 20's. At least that's how I read it.

    Great read indeed, HookemCards! Thanks!

    What it proves once again is that scouts have far different opinions and perspectives than draft gurus like Mel and Todd.

    This is the stuff I find fascinating, and stuff you can't get from watching the combine, or sr. bowl, etc.
