I discussed every position group in a big @ss post. If you want to chime in on it go right ahead. Posted by: Dude | March 28, 2017 at 11:55 AM Liked your overall assessment of the team and agree with everything. I do have slightly higher hopes for the Canes offensive line, because they are deeper and more talented than last year. This 2017 offensive line class was the best Canes offensive line class in over a decade, so the Canes will be deeper with the freshmen pushing the starters for playing time.
I knew CMR would recruit South Florida well, but this 2018 class is ridiculous! The Canes are stacked with high-end south Florida talent. I haven't seen recruits committed like this in over a decade. CMR and his staff are amazing
Player comp: Antonio Gates Posted by: 30CINCO | March 26, 2017 at 12:38 AM I don't know about the Gates and Newton comparisons, but the analysis of Njoku as a receiver and blocker is spot on. This is exactly what I observed when I watched him play live. It will be interesting to see who drafts him. Looking for Njoku to extend the Canes first round draft pick streak to three straight years
VAC has coached and been around some really good football splayers over the years. Some of the best. It always fascinates me to see players develop from youth football to NFL player. It must be even more fascinating to coach such player and see so many grow from up close. Thanks for sharing VAC and thanks for asking the question Hassan

Great first day of spring practice. I thought Donaldson would eventually start, but didn't think he would be a Day 1 starter. I saw him a few times, and he is massive. He moves well for a big guy. Interested to see what Gus Fekder does to trim that baby fat from him. Donaldson can be a dominant lineman. The best OL at UM since Eric Flowers.

How was Amari Carter only a three star? It seems Palm Beach county is under appreciated by the rating sites. Too many great players from Palm Beach County are underrated by recruiting sites. The Canes have some great three star players. Several will be NFL on rosters some day

Per PBP, Kaaya loves the U: ESPN posted two videos with Gruden, the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach, and the former Hurricanes quarterback. First, Gruden asks Kaaya about his first college start, when Louisville smacked him around in a Sept. 1, 2014 loss. “This is a tough way to start,” he said. “But I learned a lot. I knew there would be times were I’d have to take shots and I wasn’t going to feel great. But at the end of the day, this ‘U’ means a lot more than my body, than someone else’s body, than anyone else around me.

No question Richards was the best freshman receiver in the country last year: http://philsteele.com/Blogs/2017/MAR17/DBMar13.html Posted by: Go Canes! | March 14, 2017 at 08:19 AM Boy, did a lot of prognosticators and recruiters underestimate Richards! How was he ranked #48 before the season? I watched him play in that first game against FAMU, and it was obvious that he had the talent to be the Canes #1 receiver. I bet There are a lot WRs on that list #1-48 thinking, "Man, I should have gone to Miami!" Glad we have CMR and Duggans recruiting and developing receivers in Coral Gables.

The Canes can beat Michigan State. The Canes also could shock Kansas

I have been hearing very positive things about CMR and his staff for over a year now. This staff doesn't try to sell recruits with smoke and mirrors. They are expressing interest in recruits and in their development, and they are showing recruits they know what they are doing. They are showing recruits how they can develop them as players and as productive citizens. CMR's staff have really connected with recruits and their families in a real and unique way!

Why not Miami? We have a better roster than anyone on that side. Posted by: TonyCane | May 25, 2016 at 01:36 AM And now, better coaching to go along with that better roster

Ritch has some really good players in this class. I saw many of them play in high school. They are fast and athletic - I don't care what the recruiting sites say their star ratings are, there are some future NFL draft picks in the incoming class and 2017 class.

Interesting: Denver Kirkland, a Booker T. Alumn who went with Alex Collins to Arkansas, made himself eligible after his junior year for the NFL draft, but wasn't drafted. He should have played at OL-U. He could have played closer to home and would have gotten a more realistic assessment of his skills. The U puts more OLs in the pros than Arkansas. The south Florida pipeline to Arkansas is broken

I Dallas but I still hope we get Jerry Judy... Posted by: CoCane | May 21, 2016 at 11:47 PM I agree 100%. Canes are thin at receiver. The more talented receivers the better

I am confident Artie Burns will be an NFL star. Burns made some great plays last season and showed tons of potential as well as improvement since his freshman season. Mike Tomlin is a great coach and he knows a few things about defensive backs. I like Burns future in the NFL

Rich Gannnon was selected in the fourth round and he was a super bowl quarterback

They quoted an interesting stat last weekend...since a point in the1990s, only three quarterbacks taken after the second round have had three or more strong NFL seasons...Marc Bulger, Matt Hasselbach, and Tony Romo. Posted by: TonyCane | May 07, 2016 at 12:04 AM Uh, you might want to mention THAT GUY who plays QB for the Patriots, what's his name??? Posted by: SOUP | May 07, 2016 at 12:19 AM And that guy that plays for the Seahawks.

Sports Illustrated post-spring poll ranks Miami at 24. Seems a developing consensus is that the Canes will be a top 25 team.

I hope Kaaya puts up the numbers that force him to leave as a JR. That just means we are winning games. A 10 game win season (with a marquee victory, i.e. FSU or ND and ACCCG) would solidify his entrance into the draft. Posted by: Da U N Houston | May 05, 2016 at 11:55 AM There IT is right there. Posted by: SOUP | May 05, 2016 at 01:59 PM I agree 100%. Success for Kaaya translates into success for the Canes. At least 10 wins with CMR at the helm. Kaaya will continue a long string of Canes first round picks

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000531745/article/college-programs-with-the-most-alums-on-nfl-week-1-rosters Miami was at #2 last season. This next draft should be a good one for the U with Kaaya, AQM, Grace and others coming out. With CMR at the helm, #1 will be within our grasp in 3 years.
