    i believe he's Boomer Grigsby...supposed to be an amazing athlete that could play linebacker or safety. not sure what college though.

    That tends to happen when you post about a player on a MB. People read about him, and look around the net for more information. I can gurantee you I didn't know about Illinois State before you mentioned Boomer, but I don't consider myself a draftnik either. I knew a little about most of the big name guys since I watch college football, but I wouldn't have known many of the "sleepers".

    even if you did tell us about him all I heard was Captain America, not his name or the school he attended, just Captain America, I just wanted to know his name and where he was from.

    Pat yourself on your back in your posts anymore than you do and you will have carpel tunnel syndrome by 18 yrs old.

    If you share knowledge that is useful, people will laud you without you having to do it yourself.

    lol the only reason I posted this is b/c of a conversation i had with Powda on the phone the other day about Boomer and how the fans have created a secret plan where we nickname him Captain America so no one will find out that he is a real prospect...jeebus lighten up dog

    All I hope is that the Titans don't draft him...the possibility of DJ, Boomer and Bulluck in the same linebacking corp makes me really really scared

    Exactly. I know you think you are the draft guru and all, but like infantrycak said, "If you share knowledge that is useful, people will laud you without you having to do it yourself."

    That's nothing. I've had him on my draft board ever since I saw him tackle his teddy bear in his crib back when he was an infant. It's a shame that the NFL has that age limit or Boomer would've been making plays for one lucky team 20 years ago. :thumbup

    I knew he was special when he beat out millions of other gametes to fertilize the oocyte. That's so way before any of you guys.
