Copeland is scheduled to work out for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on April 25.

And Copeland met with the New England Patriots and the Dallas Cowboys this week.

A punishing lead blocker at 6-foot-1, 270 pounds, Copeland scored two touchdowns in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl all-star game and was named Most Valuable Player.

At the NFL scouting combine, Copeland ran the 40-yard dash in 4.95 seconds, bench pressed 225 pounds 23 times and had a 9-3 broad jump.

He came to LSU as a defensive tackle before converting to fullback.

Copeland started 22 of 42 games played and rushed for 92 career yards and seven touchdowns with seven receptions for 85 yards.

Last season, he rushed for a season-high 20 yards on five carries against Florida. He finished the season with three touchdowns as he played in 11 games with six starts.

As a junior, he started 12 of 13 games and finished third on the team with four touchdown runs.

As a senior in high school, Copeland was a SuperPrep All-American who had 27 sacks his final season. He had 12 sacks as a junior.

    The opening shot of the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine is still several days away, but the Americans and Europeans are already sparring over which team has the upper hand heading into the competition. Earlier this week, U.S. captain Davis Love III lavished praise on his squad, bragging that "this is the best golf team, maybe, ever assembled." World No. 3 Rory McIlroy, a veteran of three victorious European Ryder Cup teams, doesn't sound so impressed.

  • Report: John Farrell won’t rule out a postseason return for Pablo Sandoval

    It’s been a strange season for Red Sox’ third baseman Pablo Sandoval, who lost his starting role in spring training, went 0-for-6 in three regular season appearances, and underwent season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder in May. That was the last the Red Sox were supposed to hear about Sandoval until spring 2017, when he was expected to rejoin the team after a lengthy rehab stint in Florida. On Saturday, manager John Farrell was telling a different story. Per MLB.com’s Sam Blum, Farrell hinted that Sandoval could return to the team as soon as October, albeit in a very limited capacity. At the time of the surgery, it was all looking at the start of next Spring Training,”

  • Robin Lehner certainly has swagger

    Robin Lehner is a big goalie, and barring possible language barrier issues, sure seems to have a pretty big personality. That at least seems to be the case with the Buffalo Sabres’ top guy, who provided the Buffalo News’ John Vogl with a great quote: “There’s a lot of pressure on me, and that’s fine. … I know I’m a good goaltender,” Lehner said. Hey now. As much as the Sabres feel like a work in progress, acquiring Lehner was one of GM Tim Murray’s boldest moves. Murray was able to observe Lehner in Ottawa, and despite some struggles, the big Swede (6-foot-5, 240 lbs.) was sneaky-good in 2015-16. Twenty-one games serves as a limited sample size, yet a .924 save percentage seems quite promising.

    Here’s a homework assignment for you: praise Sidney Crosby‘s incredible work without downgrading Alex Ovechkin. Yes, it’s not easy. ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun presented an interesting column that spotlighted an admittedly “tired narrative” while still ultimately pumping up Crosby at Ovechkin’s expense. LeBrun quoted anonymous executives who, yes, trotted out tired narratives. One executive did the baseball thing in making it Crosby (“five-tool guy”) vs. Ovechkin (“home run hitter”) while another equated it to a full-court player vs. a “half-court” player. It’s all … well, tiresome. Ovechkin may not have had the greatest game of his life on Saturday, but watching that game, was the takeaway really that
