The eventual successor to T-Rich's throne...

Will be sitting there for us late on Day 2. DO IT, CARL!

Quote:
So Thursday's NFL Pro Day at the UofM was a chance for unheralded Tiger fullback Robert Douglas to bust through his relative anonymity.

Douglas, to borrow a football phrase, didn't drop the ball.

Making, perhaps, the strongest impression before a dozen NFL scouts assembled for workouts held at the Murphy Athletic Complex turf room, Douglas likely moved from being a free-agent signee next month to a late-round pick in the April 23-24 NFL Draft.

Douglas, 6-3 and 232 pounds, had a remarkable afternoon.

He ran a 4.63 40-yard dash, only .02 off the best by a fullback at the NFL Scouting Combine.

His broad jump of 10 feet, 41/2 inches was nearly a foot farther than the top fullback distance at the combine.

And his vertical leap of 39 inches was six inches higher than the best leap at the combine and nearly nine inches higher than the average for fullbacks participating in the combine.

He also turned in significantly better times than combine fullbacks in on-field agility drills.

"I had the (fullback) numbers (from the combine) as soon as they came out," Douglas said. "I had to have the numbers. I had 'em sitting next to my bed ... every event for every fullback at the combine.

"When I woke up and when I went to sleep the numbers were right there. I scoped them out this morning, too. I looked at them, put them down, then I threw them away and went out and did what I had to do."

Douglas, who switched to fullback early in his junior season, rushed for 62 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries last fall. He also had seven catches for 113 yards and two TDs.

His strength was as a blocker, clearing numerous paths to the end zone for all-America running back DeAngelo Williams.

Those attributes had scouts considering Douglas as a free-agent signee, but Thursday may have altered that projection. Douglas stood out among the nearly 40 players who participated.

"You want to (have a workout) like a Robert Douglas," said Tennessee Titans scout Blake Beddingfield. "You saw him on film, you saw him play and then he comes out here and does a really good job today."

Douglas, a former linebacker, caught passes from Wimprine in a workout before scouts after the pro day drills.

"He's in great shape. He did all the athletic things (vertical jump, broad jump, 40-yard dash) really well," Beddingfield said. "He's a kid that probably helped himself today.

"I think most of (the NFL scouts) walked away impressed with him. We feel a little better about him than we did in the fall."
I was skeptical when he switched to FB from LB in 2003, but the fact of the matter is, Robo can play. He blocks, runs, and catches very well, especially considering he's only got about a season and a half of real fullback game experience under him.

He sounds great. Just don't ever call him Robo again. Sounds too much like Romo. I would never be able to not think of Romonowski.
