NFL Draft '07: Scouting Connecticut

Two seasons removed from a bowl appearance, life has not been good for Connecticut football. There is no immediate fix as the team offers minimal talent on the field and poor NFL prospects.

Terry Caulley is an undersized yet explosive back who eludes defenders handling the ball. Slippery, he possesses an excellent burst of speed and consistently runs north/south. Caulley will have an opportunity as a third-down specialist at the next level. Tight end Dan Murray is a solid short-range target who battles to make the reception. A marginal athlete, Murray offers very average size and at best, is a late round selection. Receiver Brandon Young offers the physical skills required to play at the next level and shows flashes of ability but must improve his overall consistency to get any consideration in the very late rounds.

Defensive tackle Rhema Fuller is an undersized yet explosive interior lineman who plays with good leverage. Unlikely to be drafted next year, he could find a home on a roster as a three technique lineman or rotational tackle. Danny Lansanah, is an efficient linebacker who takes good angles to the play and forces the action up the field. Best in the box, he may find a home on the inside of the 34 defense.
