I had to post this because he is a friend of mine... prolly more of a friend of a friend, we have many common friends. I've partied with him in Miamisburg and at Ohio University over the years. I've talked with him about football and the draft many times.

At Miamisburg High School where we both graduated from he is the best runningback in school history. He was recruited by some top programs to play safety or linebacker, but he chose OU where he was told he would have a chance to compete at runningback. He was eventually moved to linebacker where he put on 30 pounds and started a few games as a freshman... he became one of the best defensive players in the MAC.

I've seen him play at OU on TV and in person, and the guy is everywhere on the field. He put up some sick numbers in his time at OU and was named MAC Defensive Player of the Week multiple times, and he also earned All MAC honors as a junior and as a senior. He is projected to go in the 6th or 7th round.

I don't think the Steelers will look at him, but he would be a beast on special teams.

I was suprised to see that scouting report question his athletisism... it is usually one of his strengths in most scouting reports and is obvious on TV or in person. Although it was in the MAC and many of his best games came against teams like Buffalo.

Muncy was singed as a UDFA by the BUNGLES!!!

It's cool for him... he gets to say he played for his favorite team and he is very close to home.

There was an article in the Dayton Daily News about him and he said... "What I bring to the football team is I'm a relentless football player who will do whatever it takes to make the team, and make an impact." I love it!... except for he's a BUNG!!!

The article talked about how he met with the Bengals on April 18th... and is expected to compete for a spot on kick coverage.

The dude is a beast with a motor that won't quit!... I'm pulling for him even though he's a Bengal. Friends over foes.

hes living a dream, cant hate on someone for thatThanks for being positive... I feel the same way.

I just talked to a friend who talked to him on Monday and Muncy said he can't wait to run around at hit some people at this level. He said he's leaving it all on the field... I hate to say it, but I love it.

I'm not gonna miss a Bengals pre-season game this year... they are all telivised in this area.

There is hope that he will play for the bungles and make a name for himself and then leave as a FA and sign with a decent team

After a pretty impressive preseason he was cut by the Bungs, but will likely be signed to the practice squad.
