...runningback Spencer Ware from LSU. At 5'10" and 228lbs, Ware is your definition of a "thumper". What he lacks in speed and quickness, he makes up in size and strength. He is different from Christine Michael and Robert Turbin in that he openly looks to make contact with defenders, racking up his yards after contact via broken arm tackles and hitting his defenders hard. It leads me to believe that he could be competing for a spot on the team as a short-yardage back or fullback. But unless he finds a way to oust Turbin, Michael, or Michael Robinson from their spots, I would expect for Ware to be at best as a practice-squad player for this team in 2013.

...cornerback Tharold Simon from LSU. Aside from helping me prove my theory that parents don't know what a real human name looks like anymore (maybe it's just because I live in Eugene, but my kids have classmates with names like Badger, Cessna, etc.), Simon is the sort of big-bodied defensive back Carroll loves to stock up on: 6'2", 202 lbs, 4.5 second forty, and...
