I had lunch last March with a very knowledagble football guy. His career is football. At that time we both predicted that McCall would fall out of the draft. Yeah, his combine was bad and I guess he got jittered up and just did not perform well at all.
But this same guy said McCall is a ridiculously smart football player and he expected him to get a shot by somebody. He predicted he would play a 5th season for Huskies and the Riderds would likely sign him because they followed him closely.
He's a step too slow at safety? Unless he teaches his body to move faster? He's a bigger and heavier guy to be a DB. But he could enjoy quite a career on ST. His smarts and aggression will likely be very useful to him.
Perhaps he has a nose for offensive side of ball as fullback? Hughes and Bell are 1-2 years away from retirement. He's got the build to play fullback? If he wants to play in the pro's this is something the riders and McCall should think about. Can he long snap? This is another skill that few can master. His speed, agility and tackling would make him a demon long snapping for punt team.
I know nothing about Soloman and Wellman.
And finally...........two non-imports re-signed, Neufeld and McHenry. Good work Taman and Jeremy and Coaches!
Get Shomari signed. He's getting better. We've invested 3 seasons into him and we can't afford to let somebody else to grab him.
We're on the board with a few signings and that is welcome welcome.
