Default Rey Rey gets hurt at combine!!!

http://blogs.nfl.com/2009/02/23/maua...-at-end-of-40/

USC LB Rey Maualuga’s scouting combine workouts were cut short by a leg injury near the end of Monday’s 40-yard dash.

Maualuga came up limping on his right leg at the end of his first attempt at the 40 when he took an awkward step after the finish line. He suffered the injury after his run — as he was deaccelerating — and immediately took weight off the leg before kneeling down on the turf. Maualuga was able to gingerly walk off the field with a trainer.

“I could feel it for the past two weeks,” Mauluga told the NFL Network’s Scott Hanson in an on-field interview during NFL.com/Live. “I just wanted to come out here and compete with the very best. I wanted to show the coaches and scouts I could do everything. Now I’m just going to go to the trainer and get right and hopefully be able to do the Pro Day (April 1).

“I didn’t want to come out here and use my hamstring as an excuse. Unfortunately, it’s been bothering me, but I felt I could go. I wasn’t pressured to do it. I thought I could go out and do the 40 and do it in a good time.”

All the mocks I've seen have him dropping to us at the 12 spot, I just don't believe it. Maybe the injury betters our odds?!?

Hes had the nagging injury for a while now. He still went to the combine hoping he could just work through it. the injury didnt occur during th combine. just wanna get that straight.
I suppose he could have let everyone know about it before the combine so he could use it as an excuse if he wanted to, but instead he kept it to himself and he ended up reinjuring it. No biggie.

I wouldn't. He can't cover and is nicked up. Also if you're looking for the definition of "popcorn muscles", this guy is it.

This guy isn't the second coming of Polamalu.

funny because I remember me arguing with you over Boss and Niko last offseason. You seemed to think they could play I was like these dudes have never played well. Maualuga is going to be a great pro. You are totally wrong about him.

I'd take Maualuga in the first round. He will start inside for a good number of yrs in the NFL. Will he be Ray Lewis? that's a tough order for any linebacker to live up to. I do think he will be a good physical player.

That's a total lie. I will now destroy you with the search function.

I was practically the only one on this board who was against Boss being a Bronco.

Here's my post when we signed him
http://www.orangemane.com/BB/showpos...1&postcount=79
That's not an endorsement by any means.

Here is my opinion of him as the year went on.

By the way, CTD, there was never a case of me arguing with you defending Boss. That was a lie too. In fact you were all for signing him here:

http://www.orangemane.com/BB/showpos...&postcount=171

Strange how you like to accuse me of being wrong and you can't even remember a year ago accurately.

I will say I was wrong on Boss' play. He played better than I thought he would. My concerns over his health proved true.

And just for accuracy here's my post on Niko:

Quote:
I have a good feeling about Niko. I would say I'm more optimistic about him than I am pessimistic about Boss - and I'm not excited about Boss at all.
First of all that's hardly saying he's going to lite it up. I felt good about Niko because the Bucs went after him pretty hard and also because he made plays on special teams. He played behind a pro-bowl middle linebacker, so the thought was he just never got the chance. I admit that I was wrong to be optimistic about him, but I wasn't the only one who felt that way.

Once again, there is no thread with you and me debating about how Niko does or does not suck.

Owned.

Wow. Question: Have you no life?

PS. Can you find all my posts about Boss too? Seriously, I can't remember what I said about signing the guy...

I'm not expecting much from the LB corp next year if we don't get a solid DL in here. In fact it's possible this Defense could be worse next year. Safety is a looming problem if not already, DL is already a problem. A new Defensive Cordinator. We haven't exactly improved the defense thus far.

Incredible!

Kaylore has a photographic memory!

Either that, or he's a peerless scholar.

Too bad his skills are wasted on recreational trivia.

If we could harness his talent and direct it at a REAL issue -- heck -- we could fix the economy and bring peace to the Mideast.

I would like to say that I publicly and privately hated the idea of signing Boss Bailey and I stand by my convictions. I will also say that I liked Niko Koutouvides and argued that he should start over Webster, and I was wrong.

Is it too late to call 55 post rule on this thread? By the time it was posted it was old news and frankly it belongs in the draft forum or a forum for completely irrelevant things.

I submit that Rey wasn't an All American because he looks mean. He is a leader on the field, he is better than the #10 pick last year. People will say all kinds of things to get him to drop to them. Cushing is more of a injury risk than Rey is. Will we draft Rey? IDK. If we draft him I will be happy, because than means Nolan likes him. We will see.
