Not a lot being said about this kid. I think he has tayvon austin like ability all though I can see issues with him making the due to injuries. He could easily see time on the field on special teams. I like the idea of bring him into camp.

Was just talking to a friend about Devine. Think his best shot is to impress on special teams

Its just a tryout for now.  But if he makes it to TC he will be battling Barner for a Position.

Might want to look again at the tape in canada. he was catching alot of passes some of them down the field deep. I think he's a utility type player. where ever u can get him on the field at.

Ah was just going off what he did at WVU.  If that is the case it only increases his value.

Hopefully he will remember quickly that fields here in Merica aren't quite as wide as those up there.

He seemed to get by using the entire width of the field on the majority of those clips. Won't work here.

I remember hearing about him in 05/06 when he was ridiculously hyped up coming out of high school. Funny how some guys never pan out.  

 

Anyway. Is he better than Barner though?

I remember seeing his high school tape back in the day and thinking that he was going to be a future stud.  This is really the first time I've watched his tape since that point, and frankly, I'm not that impressed.

 

The highlights from the CFL show me a player that has speed and a little bit of vision, but neither are anything that puts him above any number of scrubs all over the NFL.  In particular, he was getting chased down nearly every time he managed to break through a hole...many times when he had open field ahead.  Considering this was against CFL level players, he should be dominating if he has any chance to make it in the NFL.  If anything, he just looks like an average CFL guy, and nothing better than what we could pick up from random Arena Football teams.

Is that a Harriet Tubman reference?
