    Re: Tuba mentioned AGAIN

    I wish the Bears would draft him to play Quarterback.

    Re: Tuba mentioned AGAIN

    Could the Bears take him as the updated version of "The Fridge"? I'd like that.

    Re: Tuba mentioned AGAIN

    "they are not confident that they could get rubin in the draft" that sounds really good as far as tuba concerns. What is he ranked as far as DTs in the draft? I know Dorsey is pry 1 and the guy from USC is 2, but does rubin fall into 3rd or where is he ranked at this point?

    Re: Tuba mentioned AGAIN

    Scott Wright (does a great mock draft on nfldraftcountdown.com) has tuba ranked at like 6 or 7? something like that, but thinks he is a first dayer (pry 3rd round)

    NFL Draft 2008 Defensive Tackle Rankings

    This is the first ranking that I found when I searched and it was done on February 11th, so you have to know that Tuba has moved up from 10th since then. I wouldn't say he's moved past Red Bryant, Balmer or Sims, but I'd say Tuba is probably somewhere around the 6th or 7th defensive tackle off the board. We'll see I guess!

    Re: Tuba mentioned AGAIN

    That's great news for Tuba! How much do you think his improvement on his speed, footwork, his showing during the bench press and weigh in was helped by our new strength and conditioning coach Ken Shepherd (spelling?)?

    Re: Tuba mentioned AGAIN

    33 said that our coaching did make a huge improvement in his skills, but even more of it was due to Tuba's work ethic after the season to improve him self!

    Re: Tuba mentioned AGAIN

    When I saw him mving down the line jumping over sprawled blockers and doing somersaults, I knew that he was a very agile 320. Hope he goes to a decent team. No Davis Raiders need apply.
