HoosierCat Posted March 17, 2007 Report Share Posted March 17, 2007 From PFT...KRUMRIE BEATS UP BRANCHWord trickling out of the Michigan Pro Day is that Chiefs defensive line coach Tim Krumrie roughed up defensive tackle Alan Branch in one of Krumrie's one-on-one slap fights.Per a league source, Branch looked winded before he even got to the patented Krumrie spanking machine. At one point during his session with Krumrie, Branch appeared to be ready to quit.Gil Brandt of NFL.com corroborates this in his Pro Day updates: "Tim Krumrie worked Branch hard during the position drills, and the scouts there said Branch did not look like he was in very good shape."Krumrie, better known to most fans as the guy who got Theismanned during Super Bowl XXIII, is a legend in league circles for the no-pads hand-fighting test, to which he subjects many of the linemen he is scouting."It's Gladiator stuff," said one league source.For Branch, who is projected by many as a top-ten pick, the end result apparently was thumbs down. Thanks, Tim! Maybe he will fall to us now... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
