Jets sign WR Vidal Hazelton (Cincinnati) 6-2, 210, 4.57, 40yd dash

Report back from 2011 on him:

Projection: 7-UDFA Description: A New York native, has a private workout scheduled with the Jets. Hazelton originally went to USC where he was one of Mark Sanchez’s favorite targets, but transferred to Cincinnati after Sanchez jumped to the NFL. Hazelton is somewhat of a mystery. He had to sit out of football for the 2009 season because of his transfer and then suffered a season ending knee injury in the opening game of the 2010 season. Thus, he hasn’t played much football for three years which is a major concern to scouts. However, when healthy Hazelton has tremendous potential. He is an unbelievable athlete who will likely be a possession receiver at the next level. He did not receive an invite to the NFL combine.

Over on a Knicks board there's a discussion on the fact that it was Incarcerated Bob that was apparently responsible for the whole "Honey Nut cheerio" rumor with Melo, but he also revealed other stuff like:

Quote:
“I was getting information from everywhere once my name started getting out there, I would have to let some information not even be posted until I knew they were a real source.” he told me. “And I’ve met probably over four or five guys that are involved as scouts in the NHL. I’ve got one guy who was a defensive coordinator. He was my source for an NFL team. He just took a job in Buffalo so you probably know who it is. I just probably broke some news on your site, right now.” If former Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, who was recently hired by the Bills, is indeed a Bob-source, then we probably did. (We've asked Buffalo for comment on this, and will update if and when they respond.)

“He was the one…they thought they had Nnamdi.” Bob said, in the sort of shorthand that assumes I know (as I do) that Bob stated with characteristic certainty that Nnamdi Asomugha, then a free agent and now as then a cornerback, would be signing with the Jets. “Everyone gets on me—oh, you missed the Nnamdi thing. Well, you know what? Every media guy missed it as well. The source at the Jets said, ‘He’s not signing with the Cowboys. So if it’s not the Cowboys, it’s us.’ Nobody had Philly. I’m in the rumor business. Of course you’re going to miss some. Some other guys don’t do it because they’re affiliated with big stations. They can’t put their stuff out on the line. I can because I don’t give a crap."

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?
