A Big Year For Micanor Regis

If there's one position on the roster where young players desperately need to step up, it would be defensive tackle.

You could make a solid case for a half a dozen others, of course. The Falcons could use youth at defensive end, cornerback and along the offensive line. As I noted yesterday, Jonathan Babineaux, Corey Peters and Peria Jerry are all free agents a year from now. Getting young, cheap players to at least provide depth is critically important.

That's why this could be a big season for Micanor Regis, Travian Robertson and Adam Replogle. The three young defensive tackles come into the 2013 season with a real opportunity to carve our major roles this year and in 2014. Robertson in particular can actually push to start next year, given the free agency situation and his intriguing upside.

You'll want to watch all three players closely to see what becomes of them. Regis and Replogle will have to push hard to make the roster, or in Replogle's case, the practice squad. If they can prove themselves, the Falcons won't be feeling such a pinch at the position this time next year.

proCanes Represent More Than Any Other School on NFL Championship Weekend

In all, as many as 212 players will participate in the AFC and NFC championship games on Sunday – four teams, 53 players per team. When including players not on the active rosters of the four teams playing for a shot at the Super Bowl, however, the total jumps to more than 250.

The schools represented on the Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens range from college football's elite (Alabama, Ohio State, Texas and Florida) to those situated far outside the national picture (Hillsdale, Bellhaven, Lane and Indiana).

Here are the eight schools most represented by the four teams playing Sunday for a trip to the Super Bowl:

1. Miami (Fla.): 12. P Matt Bosher, OL Harland Gunn, DL Micanor Regis (Atlanta); LB Tavares Gooden, RB Frank Gore (San Francisco); DL Vince Wilfork, DL Marcus Forston (New England); LB Ray Lewis, OL Bryant McKinnie, RB Damien Berry, WR Tommy Streeter, S Ed Reed (Baltimore).

2. (tie) Oregon: 7. WR Drew Davis (Atlanta); RB LaMichael James, FB Will Tukuafu (San Francisco); TE Ed Dickson, DL Haloti Ngata, QB Dennis Dixon (Baltimore).

2. (tie) Florida: 7. LB Mike Peterson (Atlanta); DL Ray McDonald (San Francisco); DL Jermaine Cunningham, RB Jeff Demps, TE Aaron Hernandez, LB Brandon Spikes (New England); WR Deonte Thompson (Baltimore).

4. (tie) Alabama: 6. OL Mike Johnson, WR Julio Jones (Atlanta); DL Brandon Deaderick, LB Dont'a Hightower (New England); DL Terrence Cody, LB Courtney Upshaw (Baltimore).

4. (tie) Iowa: 6. DL Jonathan Babineaux (Atlanta); LB Jeff Tarpinian, TE Brad Herman, OL Markus Zusevics (New England); S Sean Considine, OL Marshal Yanda (Baltimore).

4. (tie) Texas: 6. OL Justin Blalock (Atlanta); CB Tarell Brown, OL Leonard Davis (San Francisco); OL Kyle Hix (New England); CB Chykie Brown, K Justin Tucker (Baltimore).

4. (tie) South Carolina: 6. DL John Abraham, DL Cliff Matthews, DL Travian Robertson, CB Dunta Robinson (Atlanta); S Emanuel Cook, CB Chris Culliver (Baltimore).

4. (tie) Ohio State: 6. OL Alex Boone, WR Ted Ginn Jr., LB Larry Grant, S Donte Whitner (San Francisco); TE Jake Ballard, S Nate Ebner (New England).
Another eight schools have five players on the rosters: Arizona State, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, UCF, Rutgers, Syracuse and Illinois.

Teams with four players: Oklahoma State, Marshall, Michigan, Fresno State, Utah, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Missouri, Louisville, LSU and Georgia Tech.

Three players: Auburn, Wisconsin, Maryland, California, Wake Forest, Florida State, Penn State, Kansas, Purdue, Northwestern, Texas Tech and Arkansas.

Two players: Baylor, Michigan State, Stanford, Boston College, Clemson, Connecticut, ECU, Oregon State, Richmond, San Jose State, Kentucky, Montana, North Carolina, Northern Illinois, TCU, UCLA, Notre Dame, Central Michigan, Delaware, Iowa State, Colorado, Tennessee State, Nebraska, Buffalo, Arizona and Washburn.

Luck of the draw plays a role, of course, but it's a bit surprising to see that schools like Virginia Tech, USC, Oklahoma and Texas A&M only have one player each on the four rosters. Not surprising? That one player represents schools like Prairie View A&M, Lane, Harvard, Weber State, Chadron State (Danny Woodhead), Hillsdale and Hofstra (which no longer has a football program).

Micanor Regis Involved in Fight in Falcons Camp

FLOWERY BRANCH — There were two fights during practice on Monday after the team went all of training camp with only one minor scuffle.

On consecutive plays wide receiver Tim Toone and cornerback Peyton Thompson came to blows followed by a fight between offensive tackle Tyson Clabo and defensive tackle Micanor Regis. Toone lost his helmet in the tussle.

“We broke camp yesterday and I don’t know but everyone went home and came back in a bad mood,” Smith joked about the incidents.

Todd McShay: As many as nine Miami Hurricanes could get drafted

CORAL GABLES – ESPN NFL Draft analyst Todd McShay said he wouldn't be shocked to see as many as nine former Miami Hurricanes players selected next week, but "a safe bet" is seven.

McShay said on a conference call Tuesday he expects running back Lamar Miller, receivers Tommy Streeter and Travis Benjamin, linebacker Sean Spence, offensive lineman Brandon Washington, defensive tackle Marcus Forston and defensive end Olivier Vernon to be drafted.

He described defensive end Adewale Ojomo and defensive tackle Micanor Regis as "on the fringe," and listed receiver LaRon Byrd and tight end Chase Ford as "sleepers" late in the seven-round draft.

Miller is projected to be the first 'Canes player taken. McShay said on-air Tuesday that Miller would be a "steal" for the Denver Broncos at No. 57. Later, on the conference call, he noted, "Olivier Vernon of all those guys after Miller is most intriguing to me. … I think he's a better player than maybe the perception [of him]."

McShay said the 6-foot-2, 262-pound Vernon can play both end and outside linebacker in the NFL.

"He has some stiffness, there's no question," McShay noted. "He's not a great athlete and his production didn't always match up [to his talent]. And I've heard some things. Is he mature enough?

"But if he his focused and doing all the right things and working and 100 percent dedicated to football, he's well-built, solid, strong, shows some quickness off the line and he has a chance to make an impact as a pass rusher at the next level."

McShay said "there's a strong chance" Streeter will be drafted in the third or fourth round, but he personally would have a hard time drafting him in the first four rounds.

"There's a lot of interest because of his height, weight and speed and certainly he's a great athlete. He has more potential than we've seen him do at Miami," McShay said. "But the tape just doesn't match up with what I see."

McShay said he doubts quarterback Jacory Harris will be drafted at all.

"He showed some flashes this past year. I thought he would be better this past year, but the inconsistency jumps out," McShay said, citing turnovers. He added that there are concerns from NFL teams about Harris' durability because of his relatively thin frame.

"But he has enough arm talent, so it's not to say he won't one day land on a roster if he's able to continue to develop somehow. It's just tough to develop as a quarterback. There's nowhere to really go and get good from this point on."

Micanor Regis Tries To Change Perception

When he steps on the field for the East-West Shrine Game on Saturday, January 21 in St. Petersburg, Florida, Miami Hurricanes defensive lineman Micanor Regis will be playing to impress NFL scouts, as well as show them that he's more than the ugly incident they probably know him for.

Back in October, Regis was suspended for one game after he punched a North Carolina player in the groin. The incident was caught on video and spread like wildfire on the Internet, branding Regis with the dreaded thug label.

It's a label that is front and center for Regis now.

"It's the first thing that comes up," the Pahokee native said Wednesday after practicing with the East team in preparation for Saturday's East-West Shrine Game. "I didn't have an interception or a touchdown or anything (this season), so that's the only thing that comes up. It's on the third and fourth page too."

Regis can do a lot to shake loose the label by performing well in the Shrine game and NFL Combine. At the end of the day, there are players with reputations at lot worse than him currently in the NFL.

Micanor Regis Performing Very Well in East-West Shrine Game Practices

Eye-opening moment: Micanor Regis (6-3, 324), DT, Miami (Fla.)

Regis jolted Mississippi center Quentin Saulsberry backward, drove into the backfield and hit Southern Miss quarterback Austin Davis as the pass was thrown, which led to an interception by linebacker Josh Linam.
