That's my point entirely. It was my understanding that he was injured early in training camp, and really didn't get a chance to show what he had. He was a projected high round draft pick after his junior year...then fell his senior year for whatever reason. If we signed Bryce as a "Camp body"... why not bring in Hawthorne?
