    My mom sat next to a player on his way to see the dolphins.

    He is nobody real exciting, but his name is Vaughn Martin from a canadian college. He had a chance to go to Michigan State but declined. He said he was on his way to try out for the dolphins and had gone to see other teams to. Just thought it was cool that my mom was sitting next to a potential dolphin, she said he was a real nice guy. They talked the whole flight. Anybody ever seen this guy play or heard of him. Just thought I would repost this again. Thought it was cool he ended up here anyway.

    The Dolphins are quite serious about him as a late round pick at NT.

    I read about him.. He's originally from Jamaica and the first underclassman from a Canadian college to declare for the draft.

    He played for South HS in London Ontario, I coached against him for a few years. He was a real good player but up here that only gets you so far compared with American highschool players.

    He really improved a great deal every year in University and anchored an excellent Dline at Western. We play one yard off the ball and full motion forward before the snap which really gives the offense an advantage.

    He's a clean cut kid that will bust his nuts every play and he's a smart kid to boot (there's no basket weaving classes in our Universities). Where he may never turn into a great NFL player he certainly could end up being a solid rotation guy after a few years of experience at the NFL level. So I really would think he'd be a undrafted pick up that would go on the practice squad to develope.

    I wish him all the best and he makes it he'll be the third player from Western to play in the NFL. Tim Tindale was a 2 time Hec Crichton (National MVP) winner from Western that you all will remember busted a 44 yard TD run to seal their playoff win for Buffalo against us in 95'. Tyrone Williams won two superbowls with Dallas but did not dress for them in the early 90's aswell. He's the only North American to have a University Championship, a NFL Championship and a Grey Cup Championship.

    I just can't believe he is as heavy as he is, he doesn't look it at all.

    Hey guys. Thanks for the feedback. Maybe he'll turn out to be something. I guess alot of teams are looking at him from what he says.
