'06 NFL Draft Watch: Tulane

Posted Sep 10, 2005

With the recent disaster that struck the Gulf Coast, the football season at Tulane does not take high priority. Yet to their credit the Greenwave will field a team in 2005. Should any player from Tulane be selected in next April's draft it will be in the late rounds.

Scouting C-USA: Tulane

On offense tight end Bobby Hoover is a nice sized player adequate as a pass catcher or blocker. Not standing out in any aspect of the game, his only chance would be as a number three tight end for an NFL team. Junior quarterback Lester Ricard is a big-armed passer who easily gets the ball downfield, putting the deep throw in front of targets and letting them run to the ball. Patient, he zips the outs with a quick release, immediately getting the ball to the intended pass catcher. Ricard does not always find the safety nor display great pocket sense. He has the physical skills to be a draft pick in 2007 yet must take his game to another level.

Linebacker Anthony Cannon is a speedy prospect, fast enough to cut off the flanks from opposing ball carriers. Getting depth on drops, he is disciplined in pass coverage and displays a good head for the ball. Undersized, Cannon is swallowed up by opponents and slow getting off blocks. He has potential on the weak side in a number of NFL defensive schemes.
