  • Woodson - Who skipped UK pro day?

    From Rotoworld: "The Bears were one of seven teams to skip Andre Woodson's pro-day workout. This could be the ultimate indicator of how far Woodson's stock has dropped this offseason, as the Bears are hardly in a position to stop scouting quarterbacks that could go on the first day of the draft. Still, they could just be disguising interest. They did make it out to Joe Flacco's pro-day, however."

    Anyone know who else skipped? I could understand lots of other teams skipping b/c no need for Woodson or anyone else at UK, but it would be interesting to know whether other teams with real QB needs also skipped.

    The Bears don't need a qb! They have Grossman and the next Kurt Warner in Orton!

      Woodson is doing individual workouts for a few teams. I know the Falcons are one of the teams that didn't come to pro day but Woodson is doing an individual workout for them. It may be the same for the Bears

        Because we all know how great the Bears have drafted lately. Michael Haynes, Rex Grossman, Cedric Benson, Terry Johnson, Mark Bradley, Kyle Orton, Dan Bazuin, Garrett Wolfe, and Michael Okwo are all fantasy football studs.

        It's pretty dumb to miss out on any individual workout. I don't care who the prospect is. I don't care if you are the Browns and don't have a pick in the first 3 rounds, they should be at Chris Long's pro day. Every team needs to make every player's pro day. What happens when you are underprepared and you don't do any studying on a player?

        Lions never had Mike Williams falling in any of their mocks and they paniced and drafted him. Rich McKay pulled the trigger on Chris Simms despite not doing any homework on the kid (Gruden wanted Domanick Davis in the third round of the 2003 draft).

          I agree. Anyone could fall. Hell they could go to look at Woodson and find a kid that has a sh*tload of untapped potential, draft the kid late, get a steal in the end. Many stars (None immediatly jump out.) were guys that no one else heard of and one team saw a workout and took a chance. Missing a pro day for any reason is not smart.

            Oh i think it is a huge mistake for teams not tosend at least one of there front office scouts to a proday but I think having that player do an individual workout may be just as good if not better

              That could actually mean that they like him and they don't want anyone to find out. You know how paranoid these GMs are.

                Since when do teams draft a player hoping to get a fantasy football stud. You could show everyteams worst draft picks and make the same case.

                  Atlanta skipped both Flacco and Woodsons pro day but are bringing them in for personal visits. it's more of an indication of the fact they don'[t view other prospects from the school to be worth scouting then the individual Quarterbacks themselves.

                    Very true great point. I remember hearing on the radio the 49ers didn't bring in Patrick Willis for a last minute interview. I immediately called my friend and told him barring Joe Thomas or Calvin Johnson falling in the draft, that Willis was a lock to the 49ers.

                      @scar: True you make a good point. Maybe going to a QBs pro day could cause you to overanalyze.

                      Maybe the Falcons are targeting Woodson and Flacco ... time will tell.

                        Warpig the Bears DO need a QB. We will probably do the usual and draft one in the 4th or 5th rd and hope for a sleeper that won't pan out

                          I was making the point that they haven't been productive at all. Being productive means you are a good fantasy football prospects. No **** teams don't draft players for fantasy football I was just saying it in a comical way.
