Leber, 21 Others Selected For 2nd Annual “Hollywood Bootcamp”

Posted by Mike Wobschall on February 28, 2013 – 5:28 pm

Former Vikings LB and current preseason sideline analyst Ben Leber and 21 other current and former NFL players, including 2005 NFL MVP SHAUN ALEXANDER and 4 active 1st-round draft picks – Darrius Heyward Bey (Raiders), Alex Mack (Browns), Gerald McCoy (Bucs) and Jared Odrick (Dolphins) – will take part in the second annual NFL Pro Hollywood Boot Camp at Universal Studios in Universal City, California.

The program, which runs from March 11-15, is being directed by NFL Player Engagement and Film Life Inc., the New York-based film production company, and will cover a wide range of topics in the movie industry.

The 4-day boot camp will offer a comprehensive overview of creative disciplines in the film industry including screen writing, directing, producing and film financing. Session leaders will be selected from among top industry executives and filmmakers and include Legendary Pictures partner/producer and member of the Pittsburgh Steelers ownership group Thomas Tull (The Dark Knight, Inception, We Are Marshall), director/producer Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights), and writer/actor/director Robert Townsend (The Five Heartbeats, Hollywood Shuffle).

Participants will have the opportunity to shoot and edit a short film at Universal Studios, the largest working motion picture studio in the world which offers 30 sound stages and 30 backlot movie sets where many legendary films have been shot.

“We are excited to continue providing opportunities for active and former players to explore and develop valuable professional contacts in a wide range of career fields,” said Troy Vincent, senior vice president of NFL Player Engagement.

“We are excited to work with the NFL on the second Pro Hollywood Boot Camp, which exposes players to life beyond the field, “said Jeff Friday, CEO of Film Life Inc., which created the Pro Hollywood initiative. “Pro Hollywood was designed to provide an in-depth overview of the film business as well as a mentorship program for those who come out of it serious about building a career in film.”

Player enrollment criteria include previous participation in NFL Player Engagement programs, prior media experience, essays, and NFL playing experience.

With the longer offseason, NFL Player Engagement now offers current and former players 10 training programs for post-NFL careers.

    I understand the thinking behind taking a CB early. There was a game last year, I can’t remember which one, when Cook was still on IR and Winfield hurt his wrist and had to come out. Sherels came in and it was brutal, just painful to watch.

    But I think the DT situation might be as bad, if not worse. For me it’s not even about K. Williams getting older. It’s about what if he gets injured and is out for the rest of the season? The two guys who are now in the middle of our defensive line are Letroy Guion and Fred Evans? Really? The words “Absolute Train Wreck” come to mind.

    I think they have to go WR, DT and CB in the first 3 rounds.

    I have been thinking Mathieu would be the perfect replacement for Sherels because Mathieu returns punts and will be better than JRob from Day 1 in coverage

    Cook
    Winfield
    Mathieu
    JRob
    Jefferson(drafting Mathieu might even mean we dont resign him)

    With Cook and Winfield its a necessity to have a starter in the 3rd CB spot … Leaving JRob as a good #4 and Jefferson as a good worst case scenario #5

    I still believe WR and ILB are the most important positions to fill … followed by DT / OG / CB

    We need to get at least a couple of FA`s, because we can`t fill all the holes in the draft. Even if they are good players some rookies don`t do much their 1st year.

    Ya Tomcat I like that thinking. If we could at least pick up one of the top WR free agents, it would be huge in what we could do in the draft.

  11. By Tomcat on Feb 28, 2013 | Reply

    vod- Not so much a top WR, which may be too costly, but a 2nd tier WR and a starting G. Also a big run stuffing DT, and an LB. That way we can use high draft picks on WR, CB, DT, and a backup QB. There would still be a few picks to fill in the blanks.

    Grandpa Jones would be for obtaining a top level FA QB if one were available. That would end the ridiculous favoritism towards Ponder, and eventually bring JOE into the spotlight!!!

    Freddie doesn’t see Spielman opting for a GUARD in the First Round of the draft. So GO AHEAD, get it out of your system get Matt Flynn, Kevin Kolb, or etc.

    Frederickly Alex Smith would have been a better solution…But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooo!!!

    That’s why you have to play your backups once in a while…so they don’t go in without a clue of how to react to game situations.

    Joe Webb didn’t scrimmage with the first team during playoff week???

    The Vikings met with CB Desmond Trufant at the combine.

    Before the combine Frazier was talking about how important it was to have Winfield back… after the combine he was talking cutting back on Winfield’s snaps and playing time.

    Maybe Trufant made a splash with Frazier? Maybe the Vikings have an eye on Tyann Mathieus? Drafting a CB high could mean a restructuring of Winfield’s big contract so that we could free up money for Harvin.

    The Vikings also met with CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

    I am sure the Vikings like the Honey Badger’s punt return skills and his upside to some day replace Winfield in the slot.

    I would not be shocked to see the Viking select a CB in the first 3 or 4 rounds

    Speaking of punters – Kluwe is one of the top ten highest paid punters in the NFL.
    His contract ends after this year… is he safe?

    With 2 – 7th round picks the Vikings could target a punter… this draft class has 3 good ones.

    Punter Ryan Allen from Louisiana Tech led the nation in punting this season with over a 48 yard average. 44% of his punts landed inside the 20 and 46% of his punts went over 50 yards. It is hard to get much better than that.

    I would take Ryan Allen in round 6 or 7 and cut Kluwe in a heartbeat! Save some cap money for Harvin and upgrade at the same time!

All I know is that Webb needs to go. I can’t believe they wouol dkeep him around as dead weight when they could utilize him fore trade or else give him a shot to play at some level. What a waste…

    Just wanted to float a couple of ideas. I saw that today Dunta Robinson was released by the Falcons, he could be a couple year stop gap DB and with the Smith trade it looks like Cassel’s days in KC are done.
    Anyone have any thoughts on picking these guys up if the price is right? Cassel could be that veteran #2 guy pushing Ponder and Robinson is more a cap casualty than anything (seems the Falcons might be making room for a certain Jets CB).

    DRS,

    Thank you for the article by Kevin Siefert about Joe Webb.

    It would be a shame to continue to keep Webb at QB if we were not intending to play him as a Quarterback. What Grandpa Jones understands coming from Frazier’s mouth is that the Vikings believe he can be a great NFL QB.

    In fact, he said as much.

    Perhaps you cannot compare one era to another, and Grandpa E. Jones’ effort here is futile.

    But…

    Joe K a pp vs. Joe Webb

    Both tall strong men who can/could run with the b a ll. However Webb is a much better runner, taller, and stronger even for his era.

    P@ s sing. K a pp was not a pretty p@a s s er, and had a low pct. of completions…He did have a high rate of TD p@a s s es. This is where he tops Webb. Webb throws tight spirals most of the time, and has a stronger arm. Webb still has higher potential here.

    Toughness. Kapp had that, bar none. We haven’t seen Webb enough yet, but he certainly appears to be fearless, like Kapp.

    Flacco just got a 120 million dollar contract ???…
    I think the Ravens are insane to pay Flacco that kind of money !!!…

    Here is my first BOLD prediction for this coming season…March 2nd almost two months before the draft…With having no idea who the Vikings will have at WR for this coming fall ???…

    Ponder will have a better QB rating statistically this coming season than Flacco…
    No problem…

    If the Vikings don’t want to have to pay Ponder a ton of money like the Ravens just did with Flacco…They should try and sign Ponder to a 5 year 60 million dollar contract THIS off season…Instead of trying to find a way to pay him 80-100 million after this season…

    Ponder is going to have a good year…When the Vikings get some WR help around him…But my first investment would be in Ponder…

    Mark this day down in the archives men…Because Ponder is going to have a very good season…Unless the injury bug bites the O-line or Ponder to hard…

  89. By WRHopkins2013 on Mar 2, 2013 | Reply

    If I am Spielman this spring draft…I make sure Ponder has weapons around him…Sounds foolish to think that starts…By getting rid of Harvin…But it does…

    Harvin wants big money…And is to much of a risk with his attitude and injury issues to warrant that kind of investment…Problems that gained steam while on a rookie contract…That would only get worse once paid big money..Not better…
    If he stays with the Vikings…

    Offense,offense, and more offense in this draft…And also a very good CB…

    My first 4 picks would be…

    2 WR’s to match up with Wright and Rudolf…(and hopefully Childs)..
    A totally young and talented receiver crew the Vikings could grow with…

    G…A playmaker to put along side of Kalil for the next 10 years….

    CB…Just an area of need for this fan…

    Spielman can mix and match those area of needs any way he wants…

    If Spielman grabs a quality G in free agency…Then DT goes way up that list…

    I think the Vikings get one “big ugly” in free agency…DT/G being on that list…
    But only see the Vikings investing in one big name player…

    Trade Percy…Get some solid draft picks…
    Pay Ponder at a very reasonable rate early…If possible…

    don’t think there’s any way the Jets even deal Revis to an AFC team. Forget about within the division, they don’t want to see him at all, ever, during the regular season or the playoffs. They’d have to be blown away to do that. Looking at the NFC, the Chicago Bears might have the cap space, but Revis would be a luxury, as they’re already loaded at DB. There are two teams with enough cap room who could emerge: the Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Both are close to really contending — and are conveniently pretty bad against the pass. (In fact, the Bucs fielded the worst pass defense in the league last year.) Each team has ample bargaining chips. If you’re not willing to give up a first- and second-round pick for Revis, it’s going to have to be a package of picks and a player. The Vikings could offer a second-round pick, Toby Gerhart and possibly a third- or fourth-rounder, which would give the Jets reason enough to do it. The Buccaneers have the draft picks, as well, and would also part with LeGarrette Blount. Between those two scenarios, if Minnesota picks up the phone and makes me the offer I just outlined? Revis is in purple by the end of the day.

    Fred Jones-
    Sorry, I think your question is about Joe Webb.
    I have been vocal about my support for Joe Webb as a QB. I have also expressed my disapproval of the game plan the coaches put together for the playoff game.

    Ponder was injured all week, so Joe should have had plenty of reps with the first team. Webb and AP were successful runnings against the Packers. Why didn’t we play to our strength? Instead the staff had Webb throw 31 times that game. Ponder only threw 31 times once in the final 5 games.

    The coaches must have had faith that Webb could set in the pocket and find the open guys. They were wrong.

    I am one of Webb’s biggest fans… But it is time to use him differently.

    Green Bay was not doing anything that the Vikings were unfamiliar with, and Joe should have had plenty of reps that week.

    Joe Webb’s style of play is not a got fit with Musgrave! Joe is not a west coast quick short timing type of QB.

    Musgrave is not creative enough to game plan for Webb’s strengths.

    Sorry, I am not sure if that answers the question?

    Green Bay doesn’t scare me! We could have beat them if we had a true West Coast style backup QB. Or we also could have won if the staff would have put together a full game plan of the read option to complement Webb’s strength.

    MBT is not the answer… he is a big armed gun slinger type of QB… Not a Musgrave type. Webb is not a Musgrave type… this offseason the Vikings will add a QB that fits Musgrave’s style of play.

    Shawn, I read that scenario about trading Toby–not a bad idea. We rarely use him and he would be decent trade material. On the other hand, he is a good back– and I noticed times when AP could not make any yards- and in the same game, Toby could – he is strong but deceptively different than AP– if we don’t use him more, trade him– same with Webb.

    If any of you all are interested in WR Patterson, check out on YouTube “Vanderbilt kicker Carey Spear levels Tennessee returner” the kicker is about 5’10 185 lbs and puts a hit on Patterson.
    The kicker took awhile to get up but he threw his body and hit Patterson!

    Tomcat,
    I Agree we don’t want to give AP the ball 30 times a game, BUT the good news is we have AP, ALL DAY BABY. Our play action will continue to kill it because AP is the game changer of all game changers. Ponder came on strong the last 4 games, I don’t care what anybody says. He can make all the throws. He’s progressing, this is his 3rd year and Ponder, I believe is going to have a monster year. I believe we will pick up a WR some how, some way, and Ponder is going to kill it. Ponder dosen’t have to do it all his self, he has talent all around him. And the good news is, is that Ponders is more then just a game manager, he showed promise many times on the field last year.

    I agree. Revis is a WANT more then a NEED. Our secondary is light years away from where it was. We have young talent that is ONLY going to get BETTER with each game. I hope and pray we can pick up a talented DT in the first round. A gifted DT will help out the line backing crew and give the seconday a boost as well.

    I know that Amendola of the Rams is more of a slot guy then WR, BUT that dude ALWAYS finds a way to get open and catches anything that comes his way. I have to believe we could get him at a price that would be worth every penny.

    If you think Amendola is the answer at WR, push him!

    Slot Receiver…It’s kind of like the difference between right field and left field in baseball. If he can “play the slot,” he can play the other WR positions.

    The same is true of Percy Harvin.

    If we take a WR in the first round we will get a good one. But I really really really really hope we get a DT.

    Ya Fred,
    I agree totally. You can slide a good slot WR out and get away with and get a ton of production out of him. We would just have to get a taller WR that has great skills in the red zone. And also try and find a gold nugget in the later rounds.

  219. By Frederick Jones on Mar 3, 2013 | Reply

    @Shawn,

    Jones won’t argue with LB and WR being the most important needs for the Vikings. The problem is is that we have several needs that must be met at the same time.

    When the QB looks up after his drop, it would be comforting to know someone is open. Yet, one more year with this offensive line in our division? We need a Guard or two to stop the rush.

    A Linebacker of some sort would help tighten the pass defense, but a strong DT is needed to stop all the ten yard runs up the middle!

    The vikings should consider taking Eddie Lacy in the first round 3 picks ahead of Green Bay – who will take him if we don’t. Then trade Gerhardt (or Lacy) for more picks in the second or third round. I think it’s benefial to draft strategically at times ad this is one of those times.

    I love the idea of generating more picks, BUT I like the idea more of hitting HOME RUNS with the first three picks. If we can get players with our first three picks that can contribute big time their first year, I would be estatic.

    Champ,
    Kinda like we did last year. We traded into the first rd to get Harrison Smith. So we got a All pro OT with the first pick and a kick @ss saftey with our second pick. If we can get to starters like that with our first 2 picks this year, we will have picked up 4 great players at little cost in two short years

    WR …C Patterson is only a 7 game one year wonder…Runs poor routes and drops the ball…

    WR…Hunter is just as bad…A very thin injury risk with poor hands…

    Lets just hope the Vikings use there OWN draft boards…And do not try and find out where every other teah ranks some of these players…

    Yeah, I don’t see the Vikes liking Hunter. Another knock I’ve heard on him is he is a poor to unwilling run blocker. That will be a deal breaker on a team that features Adrian Peterson.

    We may not have the most productive WR’s, at least when it comes to yards, but they are all outstanding run blockers.

    Check out the hit by Simpson at 4:32, he just levels a TB defender. And Aromashadu has a real nice hit on a GB defender at 7:49.

    Not sure if anybody noticed how much better the hand offs were this season…Ponder being back 3-5 yards very quickly handing the ball off flawlessly all season long !!…
    Not tripping over AP or getting in his way at all…Getting back there fast…
    So AP had plenty of time to read the defense to make his cuts…

    And Ponder has room for more on his learning curvr also…Having a great player like AP to hand off too…Ponder needs to learn how to sell the “fake” better…To help even confuse the defense more…

    Yeah, his production was pretty consistent throughout his collegiate career. 111 receptions in 2011, that’s impressive!

    Actually I could see them being interested in a lot of these WR’s. This draft is loaded and the drop off of talent isn’t really that big from the early rounds to the later rounds.

    This Conner Vernon kid really impressed me with the way he caught the ball at the Combine and the Senior bowl. Reminded me of how Kyle Rudolph catches the ball. He might be a good late round pick.

    And you’re so right about some of these players getting hyped up. It’s usually the WR’s and the QB’s.

    I saw one mock draft that had Blaine Gabbert going as the 1st overall pick.

    And then last year remember how high they had Stephen Hill going? Like in the top 15 or something, because he was tall and ran a fast 40 time. He shot way up in mock drafts. He eventually was drafted by the Jets 43rd overall, still pretty high.

    Meanwhile here are his stats for last year: 11 games, 22 receptions, 252 yards and 3 TD’s.

    And here are Jarius Wrights (who we took in the 4th round) stats: 7 games, 22 receptions, 310 yards and 2 TD’s.

    Alshon Jeffery had 367 yards but played in 3 more games than Wright.
    Hill had 252 yards. Randle had 298 yards in 16 games. Broyles had the exact same receptions and yards as Wright but played in 3 more games.

    And Brian Quick, the first guy taken in the 2nd round, 15 games 11 rec 156 yds.

    I think we’ll do alright at the 23rd pick.

    Here’s a list of 30 players on NFL.com with the highest draft grades.

    http://www.nfl.com/combine/participants

    Warmack, Chance
    Joeckel, Luke
    Milliner, Dee
    Mingo, Barkevious
    Lotulelei, Star
    Fisher, Eric
    Smith, Geno
    Werner, Bjoern
    Richardson, Sheldon
    Patterson, Cordarrelle
    Floyd, Sharrif
    Brown, Arthur
    Ansah, Ziggy
    Moore, Damontre
    Jones, Jarvis
    Hankins, Johnathan
    Jordan, Dion
    Hopkins, DeAndre
    Vaccaro, Kenny
    Te’o, Manti
    Reid, Eric
    Johnson, Lane
    Cooper, Jonathan
    Allen, Keenan
    Rhodes, Xavier
    Jones, Datone
    Williams, Jesse
    Fluker, D.J.
    Carradine, Cornellius
    Austin, Tavon

    The 23rd guy listed is G-Cooper.

    Now I don’t see Ogletree or Trufant, they’ll probably go in the first. There is zero RB listed, I’d say at least one RB gets taken. They have 1 QB listed, I say at least 2 get taken 1st round maybe 3. Plus there are usually a couple teams every year who reach and make dopey picks (last year Seattle and SF).

    I’d say you could move up ten spots from Cooper and any one of these guys could fall to us.

    But even if this is the way the draft went down we could take Cooper. Now he’s graded as the second best Guard in the draft but a lot of scouts would argue he’s #1.

    At the 23rd pick we could potentially get the best Guard the draft. I know you’d love that! I would too, and so would AP.

    Kluwe doesn’t have to worry about his job now .Ms Lauren Siberman tried out.

    She couldn’t kick it more then 13 yards.(She had an injured leg)

    That means Kluwe’s 20 yard kicks are still safe. Try again next year Lauren.

    @Titus,

    We are talking “Pre-season.”

    Pehaps you are too young to remember Running Back Leo Hayden. Hayden was picked in the first round out of Ohio State. He led the Vikings in rushing in the Pre-season. Hayden made spectacular runs!!!

    He was cut, and spent that season in lowly St. Louis where he had a few carries. Then he was done.

    Pre-season means very little.

    @BlueBird7,

    Jones thought Kluwe was one of the Vikings top performers in 2012.

    @Dr. Remulak,

    Good analysis, and jones would have to agree that Cooper may be available at #23. The question would then be if Spielman and co. would take a guard that high.

    @Titus,

    Leo Hayden was picked 24th in the first round, but failed to carry the ball until the next season for the lowly St. Louis Cardinals.
