DD.comment: A lot of people are mentioning the excellent Combine showing by U.S.C. kicker David Buehler -- comparing him to the position players. As we've reported before, he also ran a 4.49 on U.S.C.'s track at Pro Day last spring, so he's a very good all-around athlete. Keep in mind, he came to U.S.C. as a safety/fullback/kick-off specialist, but was pressed into action full time as a kicker when tragedy struck a few years ago and the Trojan's lost their primary kicker. David is the nephew of George Buehler, who was a stalwart guard for the Oakland Raiders throughout the 1970's.
