As someone said earlier...It would be great if they drafted Minter to fill Ray Lewis's spot.
He's one thats on their draft board, but there are a couple more. Best of luck to all the Tigers in the draft.
A little more on Cam...
four hours ago, Jeremy Hill posted this picture and wrote "Gotta Learn Coach Cam's New Schemes it all starts in the film room"
yes Yes YES!!!!!!!! I bet there is even a page for the TE in there.
What's a "TE"?
My God....the super secret playbook DOES exist. It's like finding Bigfoot evidence.
Bigfoot is seen waaaay more often than an LSU TE catching the football.
I've looked at what Cam has done with his offense, the number of players used. If just a fraction of this is used at LSU next year, this would be a major change.
On Cams offense, a few things to look at. Cams scheme mixes zone-rushing and vertical passing game, everyone gets involved. Remember Joe Flacco isn't a running threat, kind of like Mett now. Two of the TE's hes had this year Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson finished with a total of 82 receptions, at LSU we'd like to see a TE get 82 yds. in receptions for the season. His 2 TE's finished with almost 900 yds. this season. In his scheme both TE's are sent out like WR's, this gives a little more flexibility, it also makes a defense see them as receiving threats and creates a mismatch problems. In 2010, the Ravens drafted two TE's and moved them into the Cam scheme quickly. LSU's Dickson, Smith, Gordon and Stokes have to be thinking about this. More and more teams are using TE's for more than just blocking, look at the Saints with Graham.
As for FB's. in the Cam offense, the FB with the Ravens had 27 receptions this year.
Another tidbit, guess the OC for the Chargers when they drafted Darren Sproles in the 4th round?
