04/12/2012 - As part of the NFL Draft process, teams are allowed to host local prospects and not have them count against the 30-visit limit. It's hard to remember a time when so many of them came from Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt tight end Brandon Barden became the most recent Commodore to visit with team officials at Baptist Sports Park. Earlier, the Titans hosted safety Sean Richardson, cornerback Casey Hayward and defensive end Tim Fugger. All four players had impressive Pro Days on the school's campus last month. That event was attended by three members of the team's staff, including General Manager Ruston Webster. Hayward is expected to go in the first three rounds of the draft, possibly in the second. Richardson's stock has also risen since the NFL Combine. He could go as early as the third round. Fugger, meanwhile, probably worked himself into being a late-round pick with his Pro Day performance. As for Barden, he'll be considered by teams as an undrafted free agent. By now, it's safe to say the Titans are familiar with all four. - Jim Wyatt, The Tennessean

03/24/2012 - NFL scouts are well aware of former Commodore defensive backs Casey Hayward and Sean Richardson, but the defensive player who helped himself the most at Vanderbilt's pro day on Friday was little known defensive end Tim Fugger. At only 248-pounds, he is considered a DE/OLB conversion player and his fast 40-yard dash times in the mid 4.5's backed up those thoughts. Fugger, who led the team in 2011 with 7.0 sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss, posted 29 reps of 225-pounds on the bench press and looked good in the agility drills, working out as both a lineman and stand-up linebacker. "I worked my tail off, so I hope some people are now thinking a little different about me than they were before," Fugger told the media after his workout. "I came out and put up the numbers I did while training, so hopefully that helped me out a bit." Hayward and Richardson stood on their numbers from the NFL Combine last month, but both participated in positional drills, receiving rave reviews. Over 20 teams were represented in Nashville for the workouts, including Titans GMRuston Webster and Bears head coach Lovie Smith. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

09/11/2011 - Carey Spear kicked a 31-yard field goal with 2:56 left, and the Vanderbilt Commodores rallied from 21-14 down in the fourth quarter and beat the Connecticut Huskies 24-21 Saturday night. The victory gives new coach James Franklin a 2-0 start and Vanderbilt's first winning streak since 2008. Tim Fugger had two of Vanderbilt's five sacks, and the Commodores forced four turnovers, all by Johnny McEntee. Senior Casey Hayward picked off a McEntee pass at midfield, then weaved his way back across the field to finish off a 50-yard return. His first career interception return for a TD tied it at 21 apiece with 6:45 left. UConn (1-1) lost its second straight road opener despite the defense sacking Larry Smith seven times and forcing two turnovers. The Huskies had one last chance to try and tie the game, but Rob Lohr sacked McEntee on third down. McEntee overthrew Isiah Moore on fourth down, giving the ball back to Vandy to run out the clock and start celebrating a rare winning start. - AP Sports
