Vanderbilt DE Fugger visited Raiders

Tim Fugger #42 of the Vanderbilt Commodores pressures quarterback Zack Stoudt #8 of the Ole Miss Rebels

Vanderbilt defensive end prospect Tim Fugger visited the Oakland Raiders recently, according to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com. The 6-3, 248-pound defensive end, is seen as a 3-4 outside linebacker at the NFL level.

Fugger raised his draft stock considerably at his Pro Day last month. Most scouts came to see his teammates defensive backs Casey Hayward and Sean Richardson. But their attention quickly shifted to Fugger. The little known prospect ran a 40 yard dash in the 4.5 range and benched 225 pounds an impressive 29 times.

"I worked my tail off, so I hope some people are now thinking a little different about me than they were before," Fugger said following his workout. "I came out and put up the numbers I did while training, so hopefully that helped me out a bit."

For not being considered very draftable prior to the workout, Fugger did lead the Commodores in sacks (7.0) and tackles for loss (13.5) so he has the tape to prove he is not just a workout warrior.

The workout caught the Raiders attention and they invited him for a private workout. Fugger's stock is rising and his current projections have him in round six which is the round the Raiders have their final pick in the 2012 draft.
