on a side note from 2001

11. Roscoe Crosby, WR-OF, Union, S.C.: He's 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds, runs a 4.35 40, is rated the nation's No. 2 wide receiver prospect and is a top-half first-round outfield prospect in baseball. How good is he? Florida State football coach Bobby Bowden has said if Crosby signs with the 'Noles he will allow him to play pro baseball in the summer and wideout for the 'Noles during the academic season. If Crosby were to go to South Carolina, one of his quarterbacks would be the No. 1 rated JUCO QB prospect in the land, Corey Jenkins of Garden City, Kan., who was a first-round pick of the Red Sox in 1995. Jenkins played four pro baseball seasons, went back to school and now, at 24, is set to be Chris Weinke II. While Jenkins was a No. 1 selection, Weinke was a No. 3.

Former CLEMSON wide receiver ROSCOE CROSBY (#25) worked out for scouts at Spring Valley High School in Columbia, South Carolina on Friday morning, July 1st, as between 18-20 teams were in attendance for his "Pro Day"... weighed in at 6013, 218 pounds... he was 6016, 204 pounds at Clemson's Pro Day in early March... ran between 4.45 and 4.52 in the 40... fastest watch read 4.43 and slowest was 4.57... 18 reps of 225 pounds... 35-36" vertical, as he jumped against the side of the wall in the weight room, so various team's added roughly 2" to his jump... 10 1/4" broad jump... agility drills were done on the same grass field, as his 40-times, which was soft and created some slipping and plenty of divots, so a consensus of his times were not immediately made available... free agent NFL quarterback SHAUN KING was in attendance to throw passes to Crosby, but tightness in his (Iliotibial "IT" Band) right leg along with some cramping forced them to complete just 3-5 reps before an on-site rehab physician, Stephan Parker, recommended that he take a break... the physician took members of all 18-20 NFL teams aside to explain the tightness and potential to cause an injury by pushing it on the field... "That is not actually considered an injury, the tightness can occur in the leg from the stress of a workout... it usually just takes a few days of good rehab, which includes rest, ice, compression and elevation, so there should be no lingering ill effects for the athlete", explained a physician we spoke with... it was roughly 90-95 degrees and there was still a lot of humidity left from previous days, so the field was somewhat soft and created a lot of divots... “It was so unfortunate that he wasn’t completely healthy because his biggest strength is his route-running and the ability to catch,” (Shaun) King said in an interview with "The State" on Friday... Carolina, New Orleans, NY Giants, Chicago, Miami and Kansas City seemed to spend more time evaluating him during Friday's workout... Crosby intends to perform for scouts again, a few days before the Supplemental Draft, so that they can see him do positional drills, catch passes and possibly run the 40-yard dash again... this would mirror when running back Tony Hollings (Houston) performed a second workout the day before the 2003 NFL Supplemental Draft... his second workout will be held at the PLEX (741 Fashion Drive, Columbia, SC (803) 360-7300) on July 12th, with a start time of 11AM, this is an indoor complex to protect against possible weather conditions... please contact his agent for any/all additional information, directions or to receive a video copy of last Friday's workout.

Receiver Had Been Away From Game for Three Years
By John Clayton

The Indianapolis Colts didn't have to use a draft choice, but they made a move from Thursday's supplemental draft by reaching an agreement with former Clemson wide receiver Roscoe Crosby.

Crosby wasn't selected during the seven-round draft, but was being pursued by four teams who wanted to sign him to a rookie contract. The Colts made the most convincing pitch and reached an agreement by late Thursday afternoon.

Terms of the deal weren't known, except that it will probably be for three years.

So what has he been doing the past 3 years, playing baseball?

That and a rehab from Tommy John surgery.

on nfl.com it said his baseball career was over because of an injury he had in a car accident.
