Tommy Breaux, WR Towson (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=237189)

03/12/09 - Towson Pro day: Six different Towson seniors got a chance to show NFL scouts, first hand, what they could do Tuesday morning for Towson's fourth annual Pro Day event. Scouts from the Jets, Patriots, Saints, Eagles, and Falcons descended on Johnny Unitas Stadium looking to see which Towson football players could help their teams. The main attraction for the event was senior wide receiver Tommy Breaux, who had one of the most impressive workouts of the day. The 6-foot-8-inch wide-out recorded a 35.5 inch vertical leap and soared 11.5 feet on his broad jump which was better than anyone else's numbers on the day. But perhaps his most important recording was his time in the 40-yard dash, which he ran in 4.49 seconds. "The scouts were very impressed with Tommy," wide receivers coach Guilian Gary said. "They know he's a raw talent. He's only played in a passing system for eight or nine games in his entire career but the fact that he's come so far in such a short time since being here is pretty remarkable. The scouts saw his potential and upside and were pleasantly surprised by a lot of things." "He's been running track since he was 14 or 15 years old," Tommy Breaux Sr. said of his son. "He's always trained hard. He wasn't as gifted athletically as he is now; he's had to work harder to get better." But Breaux isn't done working out for scouts just yet; he has an individual workout with the Ravens, Panthers, and again with the Patriots later this month. - Pete Lorenz, Towerlight

6'7 and 200 lbs. A strong safety with a full head of steam would snap him in half.

Exactly, big red zone target. Played basketball at Towson as well.

can't play him at WR, too tall...His best utilization would be as a TE, if he can catch and run routes...and gain 60 pounds of muscle

Still obviously an intriguing guy, though I agree he's got a good shot of getting snapped in half if he doesn't add some serious weight.

Who knows what could happen with the guy once he gets in an NFL training program... Could beef up and be the next Antonio Gates... He obviously has the frame...

No he doesn't have the frame to put on the necessary weight.....50-70 pounds of muscle necessary for him to play TE won't be easy to put on...

Antonio Gates had a good frame (not too tall) and already had NFL weight

7th rounder to UDFA to training camp cut list to practice squad player. He might have the numbers but he probably is extremely raw if he has only played for 2 years. And at his height I doubt that he runs good routes and gets low (sinks his hips).

Someone will draft him. A 7th round pick is worth a guy who has a chance to be a huge threat in the red zone.

Dudley Guice Jr, not many people know about him but you should, he's going to fly under the radar and be a find for somebody.

He's not going to be a find for anyone..chances are a guy who has 17 ckatches and 327 yards at Northwestern State is not going to do jack diddly squat against NFL players.

The thread is called SLEEPER ALERT, how often can you classify someone as a sleeper that has stats that jump off the page at you? It's a good thing scouts actually watch players instead of just looking at their stats to figure out how good they are.



WR Dudley Guice, Northwestern State- Guice opened some eyes at the Texas vs. the Nation game with his size, hands, and route running. Don’t be surprised if his physical tools translate to an impressive pro day. He is one to watch when the workout results are turned in who could get a late round look as well.

Dudley Guice, WR, NW Louisiana State, 6'3", 210, 4.40 Projected: FA
03/08/2009 - NW Louisiana State Pro day: The official Northwestern Louisiana State Pro Day is on March 19, but one scout showed up on Tuesday, so the school held an impromptu workout. Wide receiver Dudley Guice put up some impressive numbers on the outdoor FieldTurf track. He checked in at 6-foot-2 1/2, 209 pounds and ran a 4.40- and a 4.43-second 40-yard dash. That time would have ranked him among the fastest participants at last month's combine. He also had a 39-inch vertical jump, 10-foot, 5-inch broad jump, a 4.01-second short shuttle, a 6.61-second three-cone drill and 12 bench-press reps. It is also noteworthy that he has 34-inch arms, a good measurement for a wideout. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com





Fayette — Former Trinity Episcopal and Northwestern State wide receiver Dudley Guice Jr. may have drastically improved his status in the NFL Draft this past weekend.

Guice had a standout performance in the Texas vs. The Nation game in El Paso, Texas, Saturday, in which he had a game-record five receptions.

He caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Tulsa quarterback David Johnson, and he was two yards away from breaking the game’s receiving yards record.

Guice’s agent, Shane Williams with 3SG Sports Management, said the 6-foot-2.5-inch, 215-pound receiver has already garnered interest from Atlanta, Cleveland, St. Louis, Oakland and Baltimore just from the week of practice before the game.

“Before he went to that game he probably wasn’t on a lot of watch lists,” Williams said. “But by the end of the week he was on just about everybody’s list. He made a big impact with his play in practice, and he continued that with his play in the game.”


Cecil Lammey, a writer for www.draftguys.com wrote of Guice before the game, “Guice is winning us over… He extends to catch the ball outside of his frame like a natural, and his body control to get both feet in on a fade astounded us when we watched the play on tape, just as it did in real time at the stadium… We think he’s got to be shooting up the draft boards now.”

But yea, your right, nobody is paying any attention to him, they just saw his stats and crossed him off the board for the guys at the big school with all the numbers...Do some real research on guys instead of just looking to see how many receptions he had, Guice Jr is the DEFINITION of sleeper and again, will be a find for somebody.


He may not even be drafted, but neither was Miles Austin.

Watch out for Jason Chery. Mostly a Return Specialist but, he did return 7-12 kicks for TD's last year IIRC
