'06 NFL Draft Watch: Tulane

With the recent disaster that struck the Gulf Coast, the football season at Tulane does not take high priority. Yet to their credit the Greenwave will field a team in 2005. Should any player from Tulane be selected in next April's draft it will be in the late rounds.

Scouting C-USA: Tulane

On offense tight end Bobby Hoover is a nice sized player adequate as a pass catcher or blocker. Not standing out in any aspect of the game, his only chance would be as a number three tight end for an NFL team. Junior quarterback Lester Ricard is a big-armed passer who easily gets the ball downfield, putting the deep throw in front of targets and letting them run to the ball. Patient, he zips the outs with a quick release, immediately getting the ball to the intended pass catcher. Ricard does not always find the safety nor display great pocket sense. He has the physical skills to be a draft pick in 2007 yet must take his game to another level.

Linebacker Anthony Cannon is a speedy prospect, fast enough to cut off the flanks from opposing ball carriers. Getting depth on drops, he is disciplined in pass coverage and displays a good head for the ball. Undersized, Cannon is swallowed up by opponents and slow getting off blocks. He has potential on the weak side in a number of NFL defensive schemes.
