Post Parcells is known to find sleepers
I'd really like to see the Trifecta use a 6th or 7th rounder on a pick with real upside like this guy rather than draft another special teams linebacker for 1 season. It is one thing to value special teams, it is another to waste picks on them... it would be one thing if they stuck around, but it has been a revolving door.

Back in 2004 a college scouting service did a projected 2009 or 2008 NFL mock draft and Callahan Bright was the #1 overall pick. Things obviously did not go as planned, however, but he may still have some of what made him a 5 star recruit, though he is a risk and will be red flagged for character concerns.

In February, Andy Staples featured Callahan Bright in an article on SI.com. Bright, who played for Division II Shaw University last season, participated in North Carolina State's pro day yesterday. The 342-pound defensive tackle completed 41 reps on the bench and flashed ability during the rest of the workout. Unlikely to be selected in draft, Bright's size will attract teams and he's likely to sign a free agent contract.

Well this kid must have some real off the field issues if no D1 school would touch him. There is a list of ex D1 players that had issues and still played and even got drafted 1-2-3-4-5-6 rounds. What did he do and can anyone find any tape on this kid?

:war: I just thought about another guy we took a chance on like this guy. Does anybody remember that (rb) JJ pick up. Think he came from a JC school or something like that he had some off the field issues to. JJ said he played like E.Smith,low to the ground wont give you alot to hit on him,or something like that he said. The guys nick name was (Cecell the Deisell). He played in a few pre-season games and shinned, then he broke his leg in the Buffalo game. Was out hurt and got caught on a B&E felony or something to that affect. Does anybody remember him? Or am I just crazy.......dont answer that last part lol

Here's a guy to watch out for in the 5th or 6th round. He's got Miami Dolphins sleeper pick written all over him. He's the guy I want to see us draft at NT.
JEFF OWENS - NT - Georgia
This guy fits the Bill Parcells mold for nose tackle. Remember, Parcells has never taken a nose tackle in the first round, not once. All of his guys he has snatched up late in the draft and developed. The guys the Tuna covets are built like a refrigerator and strong like an ox. Owens was only one rep away from setting the combine record on the bench press. Apparently the guy is a beast in the weight room. He's only 6'2" and 305lbs but he's stronger than both Dan Wiliams and Terrence Cody who have 30+lbs on him. This guy just screams Ferguson 2.0 if you ask me. They are almost exactly the same height/weight and they played for the same school. You can't tell me Ferguson wouldn't be mentoring this kid all season long. This guy is my pick to replace Ferguson at the nose.

We've been discussing the possibility of Owens for a little while too. Reports a while ago were that Parcells and Ireland were real high on him.

Thanks Phins Rock,his name is Cecil Collins 5th rd 99 draft from McNeese State. Does anybody remember him now? What a bust,think Mr. Irrelevant (Bill Kenney) played more than he did. Kenney drafted 1978.

Callahan Bright was 5* prospect who signed with fsu and transferred to a D2 school, but still has alot of upside. Wouldn't mind giving him a look
