Cowher Spotted at Dayne�s Private Workout
I find it a bit strange that Cowhead would be at Dayne's workout, when presumably we have Bus and Hunt. Cowhead has shown a propensity for loving big RBs (Foster, Bam, Bus).....perhaps he's looking at dealing Bettis and drafting Dayne?? This could be a liveable draft pick, depending on how other players' workout go, etc. My fear with Dayne, is that he will bloat and get tubb-itis, just like Bettis and Ironhead Heyward, and soon he'll be 280 or 290.
It�s plausible that Cowhead also wanted to visit with hefty Wisconsin OT McIntosh, thought the lard-boy is hardly worth the #8 pick. However, perhaps Cowhead is looking at trading down to say, the #15th pick, and selecting McIntosh while allowing some other team to select Dayne with the #8 pick.
Here is the story from Rivls.com:
"More than 30 representatives from about 20 National Football League teams came to see the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and the NCAA's all-time leading rusher during his private workout. He had his weight down to 250 on Wednesday and ran two 40-yard dashes. His times ranged from 4.53 to 4.56 seconds. He spent the last three weeks in Gainseville, Fla., working out with Olympic sprinter Dennis Mitchell.
He lifted 225 pounds 14 times. At the NFL Combine, 18 of 23 running backs exceeded his lift total. The scouts weren't just impressed with Dayne's so-called "measurables."
Kansas City general manager Carl Peterson and Chiefs director of player personnel Terry Bradway were on hand. Pittsburgh head coach Bill Cowher, New England assistant director of pro scouting Andre Tippett and Atlanta scout Dick Corrick also came to see Dayne. Other teams represented included the Baltimore Ravens, Phoenix Cardinals, Chicago Bears, Denver Broncos, New York Giants, New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills."
