Tanner Hawkinson, OT, Kansas
Height: 6-5. Weight: 298. Arm: 33.38 40 Time: 5.07. Projected Round (2013): 5-7. 4/24/13: Hawkinson played pretty well for Kansas over his collegiate career. He looks like a developmental prospect at right tackle for the NFL. Hawkinson didn't impress at the East-West Shrine, but he performed better at the Combine. He is a candidate to move inside to guard. Hawkinson needs time to improve as a backup, but he is a sleeper who could turn into a contributor.
8/23/12: While Kansas struggled, Hawkinson played decently in 2011, but maybe not as well as his sophomore season. He has a nice skill set. Hawkinson earned the starting left tackle position before his first collegiate game, and he has started every game at left tackle for Kansas the past three seasons.
Hawkinson is quick, athletic, and matches up well with pass-rushers. He was named to the All-Big XII First-Team in 2010. It would be good to see the senior add some strength and power for the NFL.
Dayne Crist, QB, Kansas
Height: 6-4. Weight: 235. Projected 40 Time: 4.88. Projected Round (2013): FA. 4/24/13: Crist completed 48 percent of his passes for 1,272 yards, four touchdowns and eight interceptions in 2012. He did not participate in the Combine.
8/16/12: After flaming out at Notre Dame, Crist is reunited with Charlie Weis at Kansas. Perhaps the QB guru can get a good season out of Crist. Staying in the lineup will be the key. Crist blew out his knee in both 2009 and 2010. He was benched in 2011 behind Tommy Rees after initially beating out Rees to be the starter.
Crist has to stay healthy and productive in 2012 to get drafted. He completed 59 percent of his passes in 2010, for 2,033 yards and 15 touchdowns with seven interceptions. If Crist can produce, he has the size and arm to play in the NFL.
@Drunk Ass Jerry To your points.... M. Hyatt is excellent but lacks the size many feel needed for OT and see him as a OG in the NFL... Safety is still a need for the Bucs ... RB it seems like C. Sims is always hurt... D. Martin has been up and down... I like J. McNichols alot but see him as their 3rd down back of the future.. I did grab a CB in RD4 for them... and 2018`s edge rushing talent isn`t deep into the later rounds..I see them using F/A for edge help more than the 2018 draft.
Seems like a month ago that i was 8-2 in two days of MLB play, actually it was 4 days ago. Another crap result yesterday and I'm getting a little cheesed about it. If I had not used hedging techniques I would be bleeding coin by now, but since I am, it's just a stinger. For today: In an ongoing par from yesterday I'm sticking the Under 8.5 -115 in the Braves/Dodger game in the second tier spot. Start up pars with Astros: -118, Boston -123, and AZ +1.5 RL -160, all with two open. GL and hopefully the Red tide will fade.
