DE should be a major strength this year, we all know about Vernon and his potential he showed last year and Bailey is an animal, now we can add Ojomo back to this group (this was going to be THE guy last year before the punch)... Again, I think this is an area we need to get really excited about for next season! Go Canes! See you Saturday!

Sorry, didn't realize it would ask you to registger. Here is the rest: Graham is getting a lot of study because of all he brings. This is a player with enough athleticism to be one of just five players in Hurricanes history to finish his hoops career with at least 100 blocked shots. Against North Carolina during the 2008-09 season, he had 15 rebounds and five blocked shots. That's not a guy who's shy in traffic, and he has the kind of hand-eye coordination and ball skills that could translate to an effective player in the scoring zone for a football team willing to help him learn on the job. He's smart — he's already earned a degree in a double major (marketing and management) — and had a 38-1/2-inch vertical jump at the scouting combine and ran a 4.57 (hand-timed) 40-yard dash. That's matchup potential, because there isn't a safety or linebacker in the league who would be all that excited about running down the hash against a 6-6 player who runs well. And, more important, Graham wants to play football. He turned down what he described as a "six-figure" contract to play basketball in Europe to give football a chance this past season with the Hurricanes despite the fact the last time he had played the game was as a high school freshman. Leading up to the scouting combine, he worked with Florida quarterback Tim Tebow and some other high-profile draft prospects at a training facility in Nashville, Tenn., and earned some rave reviews. And in a league that has seen Antonio Gates (who didn't play college football) and Tony Gonzalez (a two-sport star at Cal) catch so many passes for so many yards as NFL tight ends, Graham looks to have the best crossover potential in quite some time.

Some NFL scouts drooling over former Hurricanes hoopster Graham as a tight end candidate By Jeff Legwold The Denver Post ORLANDO, FLA. — The draft is a spectacular process, in part because of what happens to some of the people in it. A year ago, for example, Jimmy Graham was a basketball player at the University of Miami who had used up his eligibility on the hardwood but still had a scholarship season to do something with since he had played for the Hurricanes' hoops team as a true freshman. So, Graham, at 6-feet-6-1/4, 260 pounds, played one year at tight end for Miami's football team. He finished with 17 catches and five receiving touchdowns this past season. Those numbers, with some guys, wouldn't really draw even a second look. But for teams who like their tight ends big — as the Broncos do — ...

It's ashame that having a little herb can get you arrested, can't wait until the law catches up with society, no different than when alcohol was illegal. That said you have to be smarter them SS and realize everything you have going for you and not allow yourself to get in a position to be caught doing anything illegal... JMO and I do not partake...

3-5 sounds about right... He is a project, but if I ranked all the projects in this years draft, Jimmy would be at the very top of that list.

^ Didn't he drop 2 in a row at the start of the 2nd half? I can't remember exactly cuz I was getting pelted with cold rain and I was shivering so bad that it was hard to focus!

I think if Jimmy falls all the way to 4th round he would be a steal at that spot. He has the tools, and just needs the training. I don't think you can questions whether the kid is tough...?

UM will hold its Pro Day a week from today at Greentree Practice Field and no Hurricane will be under more pressure to perform than offensive tackle Jason Fox. ... Tight end Jimmy Graham could also boost his draft stock at Pro Day, although it’s questionable how much more he can improve over a solid performance at the NFL combine. Graham ran the second-fastest 40-yard dash (4.56 seconds) among the assembled tight ends in Indianapolis and was also second in the three-cone drill (6.90) and the broad jump (10-feet even). Finally, he was third in the vertical jump at 38-feet, 5 inches. READ THE FULL ARTICLE AT: http://blogs.palmbeachpost.com/caneswatch/2010/03/19/pro-day-critical-for-miami-hurricanes-jason-fox/

if you guys are so convinced that he is the right coach why not the 5 year extension and major pay increase? Posted by: Daytoncane | March 16, 2010 at 09:54 PM because we are only convinced he has done enough to be given another 2 + years for him to be fairly judged. For that to happen we all know he needs at least 3 years on a contract. No one thinks he needs 5+ years to ride out on 9 or 10 wins a season, but he does need a 3 year contract with decent raise to keep going in the right direction, which is where this program is headed,
Make a big % of the contract performance based, $250k bonus for ACC Champ and another $500k for National Champ!!!! PAY THE MAN!
Q: What has he done so far? A: Build the foundation for the future. Turn the entire program around from no talent depth or attitude and a 7-6 year with multiple seasons of being out of top 25 to 9-4 after 3 years with plenty of depth and a Cane attitude poised to enter next year as a top 20 team. SIGN THE MAN ALREADY MIAMI!
Which is it that the University wants? If they want the clean image and graduation rates they got it! Improve every year at the same time? They got it by 2 wins per year! Either your happy with what you got or you need more but aren't willing to fork up the $$$. Randy is the man, there is not a better option. He deserves 1 to 2 more years to let his plan play out, and in order to truely allow him that time you have to extend the man 3 years and no agent in his right mind would not get the $$$ in a buyout situation. GET IT DONE ALREADY!!! C'MON MIAMI!!!!

I think I remeber someone dating early this week that Collins leaving would not be much of a loss and he never reached his potential at Miami... Sling, where you at? How bout them Canes? 2011 & 2012 will see this Cane bball team in the top half of the ACC and in the big dance the next 2 years. Guarenteed!

Posted by: nemo2002 | March 08, 2010 at 07:40 AM I disagree. Collins never amounted to much, we lost by 1 to FSU without him, we will not miss him much next year. If you look at the team next year, you will have 1 senior on that roster, which means they all have the next 2 years to play together. They have some players on that team, coach? I'm not so sure...
