Another Hybrid To Visit

According to the National Football Post, the Vikings are planning to bring in a small school cornerback with the abilities and size to also play safety.

Akwasi Owusu-Ansah out of Indiana of Pennsylvania is 6 foot 1 inch and about 207 pounds. 

In his college career he has intercepted 10 passes, returned one interception for a touchdown, returned a fumble for a touchdown, and scored seven more times as a return man on special teams.  His 4.33 speed, 10 foot broad jump, 35 1/2 inch vertical, and the fact that he recently completed 21 reps on the bench press despite a bad shoulder has caused him to fly up draft boards.

His shoulder injury is not thought to be serious, but it did cause him to miss the East-West Shrine Game which would have given this small school prospect a lot more exposure.

One of the biggest questions about me is being able to play against better talent,” Owusu-Ansah said during the NFL scouting combine. “Playing in an all-star game definitely would have helped that cause.”

I for one hope the Vikings do not draft this guy.  Sure, he seems like he could be very talented and eventually be a superstar in the NFL… but i seriously never want to have to type that name out again.

    This guy could probably cover Billy McMuffin if he wasn’t now making McMuffins for a living, but Hank Baskett would probably get 200 yards and 4 TDs against this guy! A horrible trade that was also terrible! More horrible than HOPPY and his stupid rail cars and more terrible than Bones and his broke down Gleaner combine! HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE!!!
