Johnnie Troutman’s says it best:  “Former Penn State player chasing his dream in the NFL.“ Troutman, who stands at a punishing 6’4 325, is one of those NFL hopefuls we don’t know very well but may in upcoming years.

As a 6-5, 216 pound wide receiver who clocked a 4.40 40 at the Combine, Tommy Streeter from the University of Miami is one of the most intriguing rookies in this year’s draft class. Even with that remarkable speed for a player his size, Streeter comes to the NFL with a lot of a lot of questions.  He only started last season for the ‘Canes, netting ...

Tauren Poole, the 5’10, 215 pound running back from Tennessee, enters next week’s draft with something to prove. Poole left Tennessee after enduring three coaching changes, a stat not particularly helpful for a player’s development. But he does possess NFL talent, has impressed scouts over the past few months and is considered a strong, solid all-...

Heading into the Combine in February, Miami’s Lamar Miller was already considered one of the top running backs in this year’s draft class.  But after Miller’s 4.40 forty time in Indianapolis, the fastest among running backs, even more eyes lit up.  In addition to his elite speed, Miller is an elusive, functional back who can carry the load or be...
