Brown, Dominique

Card: Sage 2015
Acquired: 2015, Box Breaker

Dominique Brown played for the Louisville Cardinals. A short yardage back for the Cardinals, Dominique clicked in at 6’2″, 235 and reminded scouts of Toby Gerhart.   Frequently injured, Brown finished his Louisville career with 1,736 yards and 16 TDs on 399 carries (4.35 YPC), adding 47 receptions. Brown had a solid East-West Shrine performance, but then ran a flat 4.63/4.65 at his Pro Day with a brutal 9-foot-1 broad jump.  He was projected to go late in the 2015 draft, as scouts had questions about his dedication and work ethic.  He signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a free agent and later finished the season on the roster of the Pittsburgh Steelers rushing 18 times for 39 yards in 3 games. Currently Dominique is a free agent/ retired.

Davis, Andre ‘Freakshow’ (USF)

Andre Davis AKA ‘Freakshow’ piled up the numbers while at USF. While the quarterback position suffered from inconsistency, Davis took the advice of his position coaches who suggested he could take his game to the next level by watching more game film and doing the little things to tweak his game. He would go on to set the Bulls consecutive game catch record but missed 4 games in his Senior season due to a sternum injury. Still Freakshow earned team MVP honors with 36 catches for 594 yards and 7 touchdowns in 2014. He got a lot of attention at the Shrine game and coaches and players alike liked his willingness to make the play. Still Andre couldn’t shake his initial scouting report despite his productivity because his measurables weren’t eye popping. What is going for the young receiver is his intangible ability to make plays when it counts in game time situations.

In early May of 2015 the Bills signed Davis to a free agent contract, where he has made serious noise for a roster spot with Buffalo. Caught in a numbers game, Davis was one of the final cuts at the end of the preseason. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers snagged Freakshow off of the waiver wire in October, where he  found a home on their practice squad. He’d be cut in April of 2016 and is currently a free agent.

Delaire, Ryan

Acquired: 2015, Box Breaker

Ryan Delaire played at the University of Massachusetts for his first two collegiate seasons. He played in 18 games before transferring, earning 25 tackles and 2.5 sacks at defensive end.  He transferred to Towson where he posted 32 tackles for loss, 22.5 sacks and five forced fumbles.  Delaire was invited to the combine and posted decent numbers, running a 4.97 40 and bench pressing 220 23 times.  He was expected to be drafted in probably the 6th or 7th round, but instead became a high-priority free agent after the 2015 draft.  A tweener, Delaire would fit in comfortably with the right scheme as a 3-4 outside linebacker or a defensive end.

In early May 2015 he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Later he’d be signed off the Redskins practice squad and joined the Carolina Panthers that year. As a backup in 9 games he had 8 tackles and 2.5 sacks during his rookie year.  In 2016, Ryan saw spot duty in 6 games, with 6 tackles, a sack, and 1 pass defended, but a knee injury ended his season prematurely. Currently in 2017, he’s a free agent.
