    Some highlights:
    • OL was the first group he looked at when he sat down to evaluate players
    • Cannot talk to players about anything football related until April
    • Wiz is sitting in on scouts on pre-draft meeting with scouts
    • Later they will all get together and assign "grades" to each player in the draft
    • Coaches will have input on what types of players they need
    • Will not know complete draft needs until after mini-camps when he gets to see guys who did not play much in the season
    • Non-committal on :cj:
    • He will listen to what returning coaches think when deciding which players to cut
    He is certainly good at coach-speak. The interview goes on for over a half hour and he does not say too much.

    Munchy was fantastic at the coach-speak. The fans may have been annoyed by it, but the professionals were probably satisfied by it.

    If he weighs input from coaches about what players to keep then I would think that Croom would probably vouch for CJ.

    If the people here who say CJ is a terrible teammate and doesn't put any effort in practice, I highly doubt Croom vouchers for him.

    But if they're wrong, then I also think he will.

    But just cause one coach vouchers for a player, doesn't exactly mean Ken and the front office will want to keep him.
