Former Morgan TE Bryant Hopes to Join Shiancoe at NFL Level

Posted on 24 April 2012 by WNST Staff

BALTIMORE, Md. — Keep an eye out for a Bear this week in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Former Morgan State Bear Lamont Bryant is ranked among the top prospected tight ends in the 2012 NFL Draft.
For Bryant, it is one more step after completing a solid collegiate career.
The Newport News, Va., native was moved from quarterback to tight end in ’08 and saw action in five games on special teams, where he blocked two punts. In ’09, he caught 18 passes for 251 yards (13.9-yard average) and two touchdowns on his way to first-team all-conference honors in 10
games.
In 2010, Bryant recorded five catches for 55 yards (11.0 avg) in eight games. He then led the Bears with 21 catches for 371 yards (17.7 avg) and two touchdowns and was selected to the First-Team All-MEAC Team last season.
Bryant’s stock rose on draft boards with a standout performance at the Morgan State Pro Day held in March. Bryant measured in at 6’5, 225, had an 80 1/4″ wingspan, ran the 40 in 4.45 and put up 19 reps on bench. He also registered a 10’3″ broad jump, a ridiculous 43″ vertical jump, and ran the short shuttle in 4.38.
Bryant is expected to be a late-round to priority free agent prospect, but that’s only a prediction. He most recently had workouts for the Oakland Raiders and the Seattle Seahawks.
The first round of the draft is Thursday, April 26.
*The last MSU tight end to enter the NFL was Visanthe Shiancoe who was drafted in the third round (91st overall) in the 2003 NFL Draft by the New York Giants and currently plays for the Minnesota Vikings.

Ravens working out former starting quarterback Kyle Boller on Thursday

Ravens working out former starting quarterback Kyle Boller on Thursday

Posted on 18 April 2012 by Luke Jones

Yes, you read that headline correctly.

Former starting quarterback and 2003 first-round pick Kyle Boller will be back in town and working out for the Ravens on Thursday, according to NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora, who said former Steelers backup Dennis Dixon will also be working out for Baltimore. Former Indianapolis quarterback Curtis Painter will join them, per Albert Breer.

Dixon had been linked to the Ravens as a potential target last weekend by a report from St. Louis.

Boller was the starting quarterback in Baltimore from 2003 to 2005 and was most recently the backup quarterback of the Oakland Raiders the last two seasons. Replacing the injured Jason Campbell last year, Boller started in Week 7 but threw three interceptions in the first half before being benched in favor of Carson Palmer, who had only been acquired earlier in the week leading up to the game.

Entering his ninth year, Boller suffered a shoulder injury and missed the entire 2008 season, his last year with the Ravens.

The Ravens’ brass recently expressed their confidence in second-year backup Tyrod Taylor, so it is surprising for the team to have such interest in veteran options after carrying only two quarterbacks on the 53-man roster during the 2011 season. However, Taylor’s athleticism could lead to offensive coordinator Cam Cameron wanting to use him in more gimmick plays as he did with former backup Troy Smith a few years ago — a luxury you don’t really have with only one reserve quarterback available.

A potential return by Boller would undoubtedly spark controversy and discussion from a significant portion of the fan base that made no secret of its disdain for him, with some at M&T Bank Stadium even cheering when Boller was injured in the 2005 season opener against the Indianapolis Colts.

Boller has thrown for 8,931 yards in his career with 48 touchdowns and 54 interceptions.

“Our Super Bowl odds have been down for a couple weeks until we knew where Peyton would go since this signing would have such a huge impact on every team’s odds.  Denver who we had at 50-1 before we closed the odds have dropped to 12-1 and as I expected the public is taking them regardless as soon as we opened this morning.  We were a bit lucky that Denver came out of nowhere in the Manning Sweepstakes so not too many people bet them at 50-1.”
