Yea, I think LLT or Gonzo usually keeps up on that.

To me Navorro Bowman is an interesting name.

Call me a Penn State homer, but those visits excite me. The Blount visit is kind of interesting to me as well.

Is Blount the one that the Steel City Insider is saying going to visit Pittsburgh it is a pay site so I am not sure this is all it said.

The Daily Buzz II

In startling move, Steelers schedule draft visit with notorious RB.

It's interesting to me in that I would never expect it. Thought Bowman was a 4-3 will only. I guess they'd consider him at mack same as Weatherspoon. He is very good at reading the play and reacting quickly.

He's listed as a 7th/ FA guard by most sites.

http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/...og&startrow=30

Quote:

Chris DeGeare OG, Wake Forest
NFP Grade: 5.4
Scouting Report:
Chris DeGeare: No. 70, OG/OT, 6-4, 335

DeGeare is a thickly built offensive line product with a barrel chest and massive lower body. He was asked to play out of position at left tackle last season and doesn't have the physical or athletic skill set to hold up on the blind side at the next level. He isn't a gifted athlete off the edge, is raw with his initial footwork and displays no real kick-step off the snap. He jumps out of his stance and consistently is asked to open up his hips and lunge into blocks. He's not athletic enough to be a left tackle, but he does exhibit impressive anchor strength when asked to sit into his stance and take on the bull-rush.

He's consistently able to extend his arms and stonewall defenders on contact. He exhibits average short-area quickness and body control in the run game and can create an initial jolt on contact. But he plays heavy-legged and struggles to stay on blocks. He lacks range when asked to reach defenders off his frame and isn't overly explosive off the snap. He needs to be evaluated as a guard prospect only and possesses the size and overall power to warrant a spot in an NFL training camp as a developmental body.

Grade: 5.4

thanks steeley. sounds like a solid replacement for our jason capizzi project/experiment.

these are the types of guys a diligent team takes a gamble on each year with hopes of striking bronze. still seams a bit strange to use one of our 30 alotted visits on such a low ranked prospect though.

Remember that any prospect from around roughly 100 miles counts as a local visit and not an official visit.

Bowman and Lee wont count against the 30. Any guys from Penn, Pitt and West Virginia dont count but many will be brought in for a free look.

THis is where I usually head to for a running list
