Cincinnati Bearcats Wrap Up NFL Combine

Overall, the player who most improved his draft stock was Isaiah Pead. He’s been gaining more and more attention from NFL scouts since his performance in the Senior Bowl and his numbers this weekend could push him into the 2nd round of the NFL Draft.

Wake-up: Bengals eyeing RB-by-committee - AFC North Blog - ESPN

The team's website speculated that Cincinnati could split carries between a big-back rookie -- a 205-pounder like Virginia Tech's David Wilson, a 215-pounder like Boise State's Doug Martin and a 200-pounder like Cincinnati's Isaiah Pead -- and returning backup Bernard Scott.

Unlike most of you guys I wouldn't be all that thrilled with Pead on the Bengals being a Browns fan and all.

"It means play every snap like it’s your last snap. You don’t give up on any play. If you want to be great, this is what you do," said Wolfe, who credits the coaching staff at Cincinnati for helping him see the light.

NFL combine: 5 questions for John Hughes, a Cincinnati DT and Gahanna graduate | The Columbus Dispatch

Q: What’s interesting about your background? A: I was raised by my grandmother, Esther Hughes. My mom and dad divorced when I was little. My dad went overseas; he’s a sergeant in the Army. My grandmother kept me busy when I was younger so I’d stay out of trouble. Growing up, I took violin lessons.

Bet you didn't know that.


Bearcats still have a shot at double-bye | UC Athletics Blog

UC also holds head-to-head tiebreakers with Georgetown, Notre Dame and Louisville and would come out on top of any two- or multiple-team ties with that group. They obviously lose a tiebreaker with USF, so it’s in their best interest to see the Bulls lose the next two at Louisville and at home vs. West Virginia. They’re also rooting for Notre Dame to beat Georgetown tonight.
