Bucs Draft A Big Ten TackleMay 10th, 2014
The Bucs dipped deep into the offensive line pool today and pulled up an offensive tackle from the football factory known as Purdue.
This young man’s name is Kevin Pamphile, another big dude at 6-5, 310.
Here is a synopsis of Pamphile from NationalFootballPost.com.
At his campus Pro Day workout, Pamphile posted outstanding workout numbers to rival the top performers at the NFL scouting combine.
The athletic 6-foot-4 1/2, 311-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 4.92 and 4.94 seconds with a 10-yard split of 1.69 seconds. He had a 32-inch vertical leap and a 9-foot broad jump, also bench pressing 225 pounds 25 times.
According to one NFL scout that attended the workout, Pampile “looked very athletic and fluid in his movement skill and positional work. He had a great day and really helped himself.”
Almost sounds like a workout warrior if he was a riser from the NFL Scouting Combine.
In years past, Joe would be geeked about a Big Ten offensive lineman. In recent years, the MAC plays better football than the Big Ten.
To move up in the fifth round, the Bucs coughed up their seventh round pick today and one of the team’s fifth round picks next year to Buffalo.
