Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Redskins | Finding Nemo

Rich Campbell, of Redskins.com, reports the Washington Redskins seemed to be very pleased with seventh-round draft pick, RB Nehemiah Broughton. His nickname is "Nemo." Head coach Joe Gibbs believes the 5-11, 245-pound "Nemo" can contribute on both offense and special teams in his rookie season. Broughton compared his style of play to that of Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jerome Bettis. Broughton likes to use his size to punish defenders, but he is also agile enough to make tacklers miss. Gibbs said that Broughton will be included in the rotation of fullbacks at the team's next minicamp that will be held in June.
