Yeah, I actually watched the surveillance video of Hydes' incident earlier today. Not surprised it was dropped. He's at a club and he says something to a girl and she hits him. He points at her and yells....and then leaves. Didn't look like he did anything wrong. However....why is a 19 year old in an Ohio club in the first place?

If he gets another shot on some other team....I'll still watch him. I really do like him as a runner. Could end up being a solid late round steal now.

Adding this kid to my watch list. Hadn't seen him before, but he looks electric in this highlight video....

Another guy id watch out for is De'Anthony Thomas (Burner speed Oregon RB)


The kid is pretty amazing to watch. I'm not a fan of tiny running backs though. I would however be down for drafting him as an OW!  ;D

A small school player I like is Terrance Cobb, the nephew of former Buc Reggie Cobb of Cumberland in the NAIA. He's 5-foot-11, 220-pounds in 34 games he has rushed for 3,921 yards on 542 carries in three seasons for an average of 7.2 yards per carry with 36 touchdowns and added 19 receptions for 207 yards and 2 TD's. He's building buzz in the scouting community and could sneak in to the late rounds or be a priority free agent.

TJ Yeldon from Bama will probably go too high for us when he comes out, but if you are looking for a back that is fun to watch this year, he's your man.

I don't really get the YEldon hype to be honest. He just doesn't look very impressive to me.

Duke Johnson looks like he could be special.

Thanks for the heads up on Cobb, Yuc. You know I love my small school guys. I'll definitely add him to my list of guys to watch.

On Yeldon, go back and watch the last drive of the Bama-LSU game last year and the SEC Championship game. The guys has amazing power and balance. He basically won the game in the 4th quarter against UGA when on a 3rd and 5 he was met at the line of scrimmage by Alec Ogletree and dragged him 5 yds for the first down.

The only RB's in the country that are on his level talent wise are Gurley and Marshall at UGA.

Jdub - I know you have Antonio Andrews listed - I really am impressed with his versatility as a runner, receiver and returner. Listed at 6-foot, he is probably closer to 5-foot-11 or 5-foot-10. He ended up becoming the second player to amass over 3,000 All-Purpose Yards (Single Season) and ranks second in FBS history behind Barry Sanders. He had 3,161 all purpose yards after exploding on the scene in 2012. A thickly built player at 220 pounds. Definitely a player to keep an eye on. Especially with the only back-up running back signed after this season is Michael Smith as both Leonard and Hills will be free agents after 2013. His ability as a returner should only increase his value. His vision is special and he understands and reads defense really well when following his fullback.

Michael Dyer has the skill set. However he has maturity issues and off the field problems that are sure to be huge red flags during the scouting process that will scare a lot of teams away and possible have him removed from their draft boards.

Lache Seastrunk is the man. reminds me a little of Lesean McCoy. And De'anthony Thomas is possibly the most explosive player Ive seen in the last 10 years. We should get that guy and use him everywhere, like Sprolles and Bush. You guys think Tavon Austin was dynamic, this kid is going to make Austin look forgettable.

Actually just read this about De'anthony, "Over his two-year career, Thomas has scored a touchdown every 8.5 times he touches the ball. "

I love this Ryan Hewitt kid out of Stanford.  He's a Mike Alstott/Toby Gerhart type.  Good review of him here.  He might project more as a fullback or tightend.  http://espn.go.com/blog/pac12/post/_/id/59209/video-under-the-radar-stanford

Anyone got any new faves after 4 games? Right now, my two favorite fits for the Bucs would be Devonta Freeman and Carlos Hyde. Both are late round picks at this point and I like both guys a lot.

I noticed Melvin Gordon has shot up the rankings, but I haven't had a chance to watch him at all. Anyone got an opinion? I'm wondering if he is really good or just a product of a dominant Wisconsin O-line. I am guessing it's the latter.
