Just a couple quick nuggets for your Hump Day morning.
Hageman had a really good practice and if not for Donald, probably would have had the best practice of any player. He showed good power and quickness off the snap and seemed to get better with each rep. By the end of practice he was living in the offensive backfield and absolutely impossible to block 1-on-1. On one play in the Pit drills, Hageman was going 1-on-1 with Linder from Miami, and Hageman fired off the snap, stayed low and absolutely blew up Linder. Linder was on his back and if it was a live play, the quarterback would have easily been sacked.
I have been convinced for weeks that during the offseason his stock will rise and rise. He is doing very well at the Senior Bowl and when he gets to the combine he is going to wow people with his strength and athleticism. He will go in the 1st half of the first round.
On the recruiting front, Frank Ragnow has yet to make a decision but people are more and more confident that he'll end up choosing the Gophers. This interview with KSTP is worth watching.
The general consensus is that it will be between Minnesota and Arkansas.
