DT/DE Victor Filipe is booming all over the place! Houston could really use this guy. Take a look:

This guy's gonna be a big deal come the draft.

Look at the current top DT stats:

#1: Glenn Dorsey (LSU): Height: 6'2" / Weight: 297 / 40 yrd - 5.12 sec / Vertical: 25.5 inches / Bench Reps:

#2: Sedrick Ellis (USC): Height: 6'1" / Weight: 309 / 40 yrd - 5.26 sec / Vertical: 26.5 inches / Bench Reps: 34

#3: Kentwan Balmer (North Carolina): Height: 6'5" / Weight: 308 / 40 yrd - 5.29 sec / Vertical: 29 inches / Bench Reps: 33

Now check this out: Oregon Pro Day stats:

Victor Filipe (Oregon): Height: 6'2" / Weight: 319 / 40 yrd - 4.9 sec / Vertical: 30 inches / Bench Reps: 33

This guy is heavier than than the top DTs, but he's faster than them and is just as strong with a great vertical. Keep an eye out for this guy, he's a brick house. He's bulked up quite a bit since playing for Oregon and is in great shape. His agent has been contacted by quite a few teams showing good interest:

* Cleveland Browns
* SF 49ers
* Oakland Raiders
* NY Jets
* Buffalo Bills
* Chicago Bears
* Minnesota Vikings
* Jacksonville Jaguars
* Seattle Seahawks
* Tennesee Titans

definitely his agent. good idea but he should probably talk to the front office not the fans.
this dude does look pretty nice though. i havent ever even heard of him. maybe a 6th or 7th round pick on him

The 3rd, 4th and 6th links are busted.

Sounds like the 49ers and Vikings may give him a shot as an UDFA.

I'd prefer Tommy Blake in the 7th.

Actually, I'd rather give this kid a shot in the 7th. I just don't trust Blake to stay out of trouble. As long as Blake is on his meds he's ok, but if he gets off of them, he is just too unpredictable.

Why would a "sleeping dt/de" become such a big deal???

I'd be impressed if he was sleeping and playing football at the same time.

And I would take Studebaker over this guy.

The difference is Blake is at least twice the football player this guy is.

Maybe, maybe not. I would still rather have the guy that won't end up suspended or retired (ala Ricky Williams) because his head just isn't in it.

sadly the 32 teams in the NFL haven't gotten the memo.

Nah I bet theres a bidding war going on behind the scenes.

yeah my sources say his agent has a contract offer from each team, but the guaranteed money (~15 mill) isn't meeting Victor "The Big Deal" Filipe's standards

the Bengals managed to sign The Big Deal. already penciling them in the Super Bowl.
