Today, though, Vladimir Ducasse is a bona fide star at the University of Massachusetts, the starting left tackle and co-captain. He is big and strong, agile and smart, and has a ravenous hunger for hard work. Though UMass currently has three alums playing in the NFL (James Ihedigbo with the Jets, Matt Lawrence with the Ravens, and Jeremy Cain with the Jaguars), none was considered the prospect that Ducasse is.

According to UMass assistant coach Brian Crist, the staff’s pro coordinator, virtually every NFL team has sent at least two scouts to watch Ducasse in practice. He was recently scouted by Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli, who earned his stripes as perhaps the game’s foremost talent evaluator with the Patriots.

“Our assessment is that he’s a great player for us,’’ said UMass head coach Kevin Morris. “It’s up to the NFL to assess where they feel his level is. But there has been a lot of attention, projections that have been extremely high.’’
