Met UCF CB Josh Robinson and had the opportunity to get to know the young man a little. Very impressive. Grounded, respectful, humble, and has made it known that God is always first in his life. He'll be at the combine and I for one am pulling for this young man.

Many of the draft boards have him rated around 100 so there is a good chance he will go in the 3rd or 4th round. Very good chance to play at the next level.

It will be fun to watch him. Any other specifics from your conversation that you'd like to share?

I'm also looking forward to watching the other Josh, Josh Norman of Coastal Carolina. Norman has the size, athleticism, and ball skills to be a good CB or convert to FS.

Nothing but good things said about him locally here in Orlando. Class act.

Built like a rock. Great shape. Mostly we talked about God.

Did you get a chance to work him out? In your opinion, what are his chances to be good in the NFL?

No this meeting was not on the field. If you go back to his freshman year he was dynamite. Had 6 picks, then the past two years teams went away from him some. I haven't seen a whole lot of him playing maybe a handful of games but he's pretty fluid in and out of his breaks. Can stop and go pretty well. And knows how to break on the ball. It will all depend on how well he does at the combine. A great performance could get him middle to end of 3rd round. I think if that happens his chances are good.

Cool DeeDub. I've never seen him before but I think I'll go research him, see if I can find some video on him. I like the fact he's a humble young man.

I see what you mean DeeDub. My only question about him is how good he is against the run. Steeler CB's have to be good against the run. Just could not tell that from the video, unfortunately. Looks to be a solid prospect!

Do we really care about a player's potential relationship with God? I've always found that a weird thing to rely on.

We all have personal reasons we like to root for certain players to make it or do well.

For me, I care most about a guy's relationship with the Lombardi.

How bad does he want it? That's the guy I want.

I don't care if he chops chicken heads off and prays to JoBu...as long as he does his job in the best manner possible and contributes to the team to the best of his abilities.

With how far off some of the later "official" times have been from the immediate "hand" times, we may need to wait a bit to see if he didn't actually run a 4.6 instead. :lol:

The kid is worth a look but he just jumped about a round and a half with those times.

..and 10 picks in 3 years and the fact he started all 3 years (including as a true freshman)...yep!

If genuine, then he should have high points for character. That can make a big difference in this league. Compare Troy P. with Packman Jones. Who would you rather have in your backfield?

Religion and character do not necessarily go hand-in-hand. The Vatican simply reassigning numerous Catholic priests who have molested countless alter boys to new parrishes makes the Jerry Sandusky trial look like small potatoes.

Those aren't good examples Ruthless. That (the Catholic Church), is a man made religion ( see the Nicene Creed 325 A.D.). That inst what Christ established as His Church (Matthew 28:16-20 and Acts 2:38-41) :wink:
