    Thumbs up Good article onTommy Bohanon

    This dude is strong as an ox, 36 BP reps! Also is an above average pass catcher at his position and good pass blocker/picks up blitz well, not to mention devastating lead blocker in the run game.

    WFUís Bohanon, two from ASU picked in NFL Draft


    Fullback Tommy Bohanon from Wake Forest, and former Appalachian State teammates Sam Martin and Demetrius McCray were among area college players selected Saturday in the final rounds of the NFL Draft.

    Martin, a punter, was the first of the three selected, going to the Detroit Lions in the fifth round. Bohannon (New York Jets) and McCray (Jacksonville Jaguars) were selected in the seventh round.

    Bohanon was known as a punishing lead blocker who was skilled at picking up the blitz in pass protection, but he played in more of an H-back role last season. He also played was a teammate of wide receiver Brad Idzik, the son of Jets general manager John Idzik, for two years.

    Bohanon (6-0, 245) caught a career-high 32 passes for 208 yards and five touchdowns last season and was invited to the Senior Bowl. He bench-pressed 225 pounds 36 times, the best mark at the NFL combine among running backs and fullbacks.

    He is the first Wake Forest fullback drafted since Ovie Mughelli went to the Baltimore Ravens in the fourth round in 2003 and only the third Wake Forest fullback picked in the draft.

    Bohanon had 50 career carries for 160 yards and three Touchdowns and 51 receptions for 405 yards and seven touchdowns.

    Martin, who led the Southern Conference in punting with a 45.9-yard average last season, also could handle kickoffs for the Lions, whose veteran kicker Jason Hanson announced his retirement last week. The Lions ranked last in the NFL in punting average in 2012.

    Martinís 45.9-yard average last season was the second-best single season mark at ASU behind that of former NFL punter Harold Alexander. Martin also was the second punter selected in this draft, just behind Jeff Locke from UCLA, a fifth-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings.

    McCray (6-1, 187) led the Southern Conference in interceptions the last two seasons from his cornerback position, tying for the SoCon lead with four last season and leading the league with five interceptions in 2011. He finished his ASU career with 10 interceptions.

    McCray could have the chance to make an impact early. Jacksonville is trying to replace most of its secondary. The team parted ways with its top four cornerbacks ó Derek Cox, Rashean Mathis, Aaron Ross and Will Middleton ó and with strong safety Dawan Landry, leaving Dwight Lowery as the only returning starter.

    Other players from North Carolina colleges selected Saturday were: defensive back Earl Wolff (Philadelphia, Round 5) from N.C. State; guard Travis Bond (Minnesota, Round 7) from North Carolina; wide receiver Aaron Mellett (Baltimore, Round 7) from Elon; and quarterback Sean Renfree (Atlanta, Round 7) from Duke.

    Cheers mate I have a feeling this kid is on another level from the disappointing Terminator, who had a lot of fanfare then fizzled out.
