Chavez Grant is very underated from what i hear. they said he was probally the best CB besides Ryan Hill(Cane Commit) in Fl this year and rivals had him at 3 stars which fully proves my theory stars dont mean sh*t.

Check this out, i ain't acting like i'm all over the U's d*ck and its players but i'm gonna give it up to them boyz... Chavez Grant is not physically big but he's a playmaker. The dude also ran a 4.34 at the UM camp last year. Another player from Miami but couldn't go to UM cuz of grades was this WR Tim Brown from Northwestern. He too runs a 4.3 and right now he's smoking n*ggas in track including the DBs and the WRs from my school as well... bad thing is that they in our district.

But yeah, this is the point, the Army-All american game, Rivals, Scout.com don't portray the type of talent from the top powerhouses of football, Miami or South Florida for example.

MY Spring Game Observations

Kyle Wright barely even played today. he had 3 possesions in the first half and like 2 or 3 in the second. the rest was Kirby with a little sprinkle of fernandez and the other walkon QB.

- Charlie Jones hit the hole much harder than last year and
looked like he has improved his speed and quickness
- Our LB's are stepping up and making plays they were
everywhere.
- we will be good at MLB. both Sharpton and Bryant looked
very good out there today IMO
- Our Dline is probally the best in the nation with 2nd place
going to our second string.
- Kirby is throwing the ball like Kyle was throwing the ball last
year. no air under, overthrow on alot of deep balls.
- Kyle Wright looked pretty good when he was playing i know
he had over an 60% completion percentage.
-Derron Thomas and Charlie Jones both looked pretty
impressive. while Andrew Jones showed flashes.
- Our passing game while Vanilla still looks alot more fluent
than last year.
- we had decent pass protection and good run blocking
- Our DB's are super agressive more so Armour, R.Phillips,
B.Johnson.
- our Wr's did an alright job Leggett droped and deep pass
from Freeman. and Monroe dropped a couple. Moore pretty
much caught anything he could get his hands on that was
catchable.

- RT Byrd seemed to stuggle at the beginning with the speed of our DE's but he seemed to sure up as the game went along.

- Defense 1st team and 2nd are just dominant. they were flying everywhere. - kirby ran his usual amount of bootlegs.

-Our O-line is better at this point than last years.

Chat with Sinorice Moss


Welcome to The Show! On Thrusday, Miami wide receiver Sinorice Moss will log on to chat about how he's dealing with the draft process so far.

Moss caught 37 passes for 614 yards with six touchdown catches in his senior season at Miami. He is considered one of the fastest prospects, regardless of position in the 2006 draft. Sinorice's older brother Santana was a first round selection of the New York Jets in 2001.

Scouts, Inc. ranks Moss third among the wide receivers in the 2006 draft. In his mock draft, Mel Kiper has Moss going to Pittsburgh with the 32nd pick in the first round.

Send in your questions to Sinorice using the fields below, then join him for the answers at 4:30 p.m. ET on Thursday.

Back in November, Sinorice stopped by to chat. Check out the transcript.

SportsNation Buzzmaster: OK! We've had several current NFL stars on today but now it is time to talk to a future star! Sinorice Moss will be here shortly to take your questions about his preparation for the NFL draft!

Kobi (Cleveland, Ohio): How are you preparing for the Draft?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: Basically, I'm working out every day. I'm thinking about it every day, working out and waiting for the time to come.

Adam (Sarasota. FL): Sinorice whats good? What NFL qb right now whould you want throwing you the ball?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: Brett Favre. The PAckers are one of my favorite teams. I would love to catch one from him.

Peter, NY, NY: Kiper has you on his draft board going to the Pittsburgh Steelers. What do you think? As a Steeler fan - I'd be glad to see you wearing black & gold.

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: That would be great, man. They were teh Super Bowl champions last year. I would know that next year we would be f!ghting to win another Super Bowl.

Jeff (Okoboji, IA): Are you the fastest player in the draft?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: (laughs) I'm fast. I really can't tell by the 40 times. Anything beyond the 40, I think I'm the fastest.

billy (los angeles): hey I was wonder what you have to say to people who think your to small to play in the NFL? I think size dosent matter if ya make plays which I think you will.

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I really have nothing to say on that. I'm going to go out and play football the way I can. I'm going to play football. I catch the football and run fast. Just because I'm 5-8 doesn't mean anything.

Mike, Chicago: Sinorice, I read that you visited Hallas Hall recently how was that visit? Would you like to play for a big city and a franchise with such tradition as the Bears? Lastly, could you handle the cold wheather in Chicago?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I haven't visited the Bears yet. I would love to play for Chicago, though. Who wouldn't?

Jamie (Fort Lauderdale, FL): Sinorice, what sets you apart from the other top receivers in the draft?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I think my ability to use my speed and quickness to get by guys. My quick burst off the line gets ride of the other guys' cushion. I can get the ball and turn a small play into a big one.

Alex (Duncannon, PA): Do you think your prepared enough to make the transition from NCAA to the NFL? So many players have faultered in their rookie seasons.

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: You can never be too prepared. Right now I'm trying to get prepared as best I can. You're always going to run into problems making that transition. But I'm going to do the best I can.

Eric (Ellicott City, Maryland): Sinorice, how has Santana helped you prepare for the draft? He sure had a standout season for the skins last year.

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: My brother has helped me so much. Anytime I needed help, he's there. He talks to me about the draft and the NFL. He tells me how to train myself. He helps me so much. Having him and having him be through the process before me is a tremendous hellp.

Tim (Indy): What's the first thing you are going to buy after you get your first paycheck?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I want to buy myself a home in Miami. Actually, I want to build myself a house. I want it just the way I want it.

joseph: How well will the hurricanes be this year?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I think they should bounce back real fast. They have a lot of guys that will be good. They have to continue to work hard. I think they're going to do well.

Brent ((**** Rapids, MN)): Who's the better reciever? You or your brother?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: Wow. Nice question Brent. My brother is in the NFL. My brother has his own style and I have mine. He's done it on the NFL level and I haven't had the chance to do that yet. So right now, I'd have to say him.

Adam Seattle: has seatttle should any intrest in you at pick 30?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I talked to the Seahawks at the combine and at my pro day. They showed a little interest. Other than that, no real strong interest.

Aaron Winston Salem,NC: I am a huge Carolina Panther fan i was wondering did you watch Steve Smith at all this year and if you did do you kinda compare yourself to him

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I don't compare myself to him. I watched him and my brother. They helped me this year by watching them. They do all the things that I want to do by making plays. They show that players of their size can make an impact in the NFL.

Sean Philadelphia, PA: Yo Sinorice I have a 2 questions. 1st 1 is...how much interest have the Philadelphia Eagles shown in you? & #2 would you like to play for the Eagles??

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: The Eagles have showed great interest in me. I had a visit with them last week. I would love to play in Philadelphia. They told me that they need another receiver.

Brian (Madison, WI): What team has shown the most interest in you up to this point?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I would have to say the Eagles. They have shown the most interest.

matthew, brick, nj: because your brother is one of the best recievers in the game, how do you see yourself measuring up with the expectations that are on you?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: There's no pressure. Not at all. I just want to be the same thing that I was in college. I went through the same thing in college with the expectations. I'm not worried about any of the pressure. There won't be any on my behalf.

Ray (Florida): Which stadium do you want to play at the most?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I've never really thought about that. Probably Green Bay Packers' field. To see the atmosphere and see how it is.

Len (Coral Gables, FL): From an individual standpoint, would you say that you accomplished everything you wanted to while at Miami?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I was able to accomplish everything I wanted to. With the effort I put in, I was able to accomplish everything I wanted.

Heather (Indy): Would you want to play on the same team as your brother?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: No, I wouldn't want to be on the same team. There's already going to be enough comparisons, so I'd rather be on my own team.

David (Dallas TX): Has Dallas shown any interest in ur at all??

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: No, they haven't. I talked to their receiving coach at the combine and that's about it.

Eric (Coral Gables, FL): Yo Sinorice! I've decided I'm putting off some homework and looking for something to do tonight. Where's your favorite place to go here in Miami?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I would have to say to the Comedy Show a lot in Miami. Every Tuesday and Thursday to check out the comedy show. Go out to Wet Willie's and chill. Grab something to eat.

Bill (Miami): wouldnt you love to play for your hometown Miami Dolphins?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I would love to stay home and play in Miami. I've been here all my life. My friends wouldn't have to travel much. If the Dolphins want me, I'd love to stay home.

Chris (Trenton): How high do you think you can go in the draft?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I really don't know. I can't make that decision.

David (Dallas TX): What team do you want to be drafted to??

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I would love to play for the San Diego Chargers. I would love to be in California. I would love to be a part of their organization.

Antione (Oakland, Ca): Giving your size and exceptional speed what kind of impact do you hope to make as a rookie on the next level?

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: I'm hoping to get myself on the special teams. The return game. Then I can make some plays and get in on the offense and get to be teh No. 2 or 3 receiver and help the offense.

SportsNation Sinorice Moss: Thanks for the questions. I appreciate it.

Canes QB Freeman staying put

AL DIAZ / MIAMI HERALD FILE PHOTO

[pic - click to view]


University of Miami backup quarterback Kirby Freeman will announce Friday morning at a UM news conference that he has decided to stay a Hurricane.

Freeman, who will be a redshirt sophomore next season, said he was making a decision about whether to transfer in hope of more playing time. Freeman, 6-3 and 204 pounds, completed 15 of 31 passes last season for 183 yards and two touchdowns. He threw two interceptions.

Freeman's UM highlight: coming in for injured starter Kyle Wright with about 12 minutes left of the second quarter at No. 3 Virginia Tech, and directing the last four plays of a 17-play, 82-yard drive that ended in Charlie Jones' 1-yard touchdown. UM won that game 27-7.

Freeman is more mobile than Wright, and was coached by his father at Brownwood High in Brownwood, Texas.

Had Freeman left, UM would have no scholarship quarterbacks other than Wright and incoming freshman Daniel Stegal of Greenwood, Ark.

NFL DRAFT: DEVIN HESTER
Gamebreaker a special case
UM's Devin Hester has electrifying kick-return ability, but will he be drafted to play offense or defense? It's anybody's guess.
BY SUSAN MILLER DEGNAN


University of Miami football coach Larry Coker calls Devin Hester ``a mystery.''

His agent calls him intriguing.

His basketball-playing fiancée calls him a bit skittish about a thrilling event in his life next Saturday.

Sounds like a great novel.

''We're all nervous, because it's nerve-racking waiting for your name to be called,'' WNBA first-round draft pick Tamara James said of Hester, who is expected by some to be chosen as early as the third round of the NFL Draft.

The next chapter of Hester's memoirs will be revealed when the gifted return specialist learns where he will play next season, though it's anybody's guess -- including Hester's -- what offensive or defensive position he eventually will fill.

''He's got versatility, but is he an offensive player? Is he a defensive player?'' ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said. ``He never carved that niche completely at Miami.''

What are the prospects for a guy who can run back kicks with ease but has little body of work otherwise? A guy who had five interceptions the past two seasons, but only one start as a nickelback in 2005? A guy who played little as a wide receiver his freshman season, switched to cornerback as a sophomore while dabbling on offense, and then back to offense for the final, frustrating game of his college career?

''I'm just going to put it in God's hands,'' Hester said.

That's probably a good idea, because no one else has been able to figure out where Hester fits best -- other than running back punts with a vengeance.

''He never really established himself at a position,'' Coker said in an e-mail about Hester, whom he believes is suited more as a receiver and struggled learning cornerback. ``NFL teams are intrigued with his skills, especially as a kick returner. Somebody will take a risk, and hopefully Devin will do well, whether it be on offense or defense. That's what NFL teams are questioning.

``He certainly has an opportunity to be a great NFL player once he gets established.''

Fellow Hurricane Kelly Jennings, a cornerback projected to go in the late first or early second round, said UM defensive backs coach Tim Walton is a stickler for doing things as he instructs them.

''Coach Walton always wanted it done exactly how he coached it up,'' Jennings said. ``I guess Devin didn't always get it done that way. He had so much talent that sometimes he'd try to do what he felt would be the best thing to make the play. He's a guy who wants to make a play.''

IMMEDIATE HELP

No matter where Hester plays in the NFL, analysts believe he is good enough to succeed purely as a return specialist.

''To me, he's a good third-round pick, because you know you're going to get immediate production on special teams,'' said Kiper, whose most recent mock draft has Hester being taken by the Lions with the 10th pick in the third round.

Kiper cited, among others, Chad Morton of the Giants and B.J. Sams of the Ravens as players who have survived because of their special-teams skills. He also said former Colorado receiver Jeremy Bloom is about to be drafted for his return skills but will grow into ''a heck of a'' wide receiver.

''If you're a good return man, you can play a long time in this league,'' Kiper said.

Analyst Todd McShay of ESPN.com and Scouts, Inc., said he thinks Hester made a mistake leaving UM a year early but still believes ``he can have a great career. Look at Dante Hall of the Chiefs. He's not a good No. 3 receiver, but the reason they pay him is because of his return ability.''

PREFERS DEFENSE

Hester believes he is a cornerback, though he'll gladly play offense to get on the field. He said he interviewed with ''about 20 teams'' during the NFL combine in Indianapolis. During a workout for the Dolphins, team officials discussed his ability to play both ways. He visited at UM with representatives from the Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles and recently flew to meet with the St. Louis Rams. A visit to the Denver Broncos also had been scheduled.

''I like defense more,'' said Hester, a Parade and USA Today first-team All-American who starred at running back, receiver, cornerback and kick returner at Riviera Beach Suncoast High School. ``On defense, you don't know what to expect. I'm like a person who loves roller coasters. You do it for the thrill.''

Although he worked out for a month in Orlando to prepare for the combine, Hester trains at UM with strength and conditioning coach Andreu Swasey, who helped coach the defense last season.

''He's a very strong cat -- back squats about 435, bench presses 325, power cleans 286,'' Swasey said. ``Devin Hester is probably one of the most freakish athletes to come through here, and that's saying a lot with the type of athletes we've had. I know a team will have to find the time to learn where to play him, but they'll do it because he's a talent.

``Devin has the X-factor. He has something that will change a game in a few seconds.''

Hester's ability to start and stop as quickly as the Roadrunner on any given play can be dazzling. He's 5-11, 190 pounds of fumes -- that is, when he's not worrying about trying to be Superman.

As a sophomore in 2004, he nearly was. He led the Hurricanes with four interceptions (despite starting just one game on defense) and ran back three punts, one kickoff and one blocked field goal for touchdowns.

At times last fall, however, Hester said he felt an internal pressure to do too much. That, he said, coupled with nagging injuries, teams kicking away from him and frustration over not playing enough led to a subpar junior season: one punt return for touchdown (his 14.2-yard average was 13th-best in the nation), 12 tackles, one sack and one interception.

He was switched to offense for the Peach Bowl and immediately helped lead the Canes to a first-quarter field goal with a 9-yard run and 26-yard catch. The field goal produced UM's only points in the 40-3 loss to LSU, but Hester barely played after that.

''The whole season was kind of frustrating,'' the soft-spoken Hester said, ``but things happen for a reason. A player can't control what the coaches think and the coaches feel. I'm a team player and went with whatever the coaches thought.

``I love returning punts, no question, and wherever I get an opportunity to make a play I'll be happy with. Like I said, I'm going to put it in God's hands.''
