01/26/2012 - 2012 SENIOR BOWL THURSDAY: Small school cornerback Ryan Steed out of Furman has shown he belongs here this week, competing at a high level in every drill. His inexperience will show at times as he still needs to develop his instincts and read/react ability, but he has shown the smooth athleticism to play the position in the NFL. Steed looked natural in his transition, turning and running with receivers downfield with smooth flexibility. He needs some work before he's ready to cover pro receivers, but he has looked promising this week. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

11/07/2011 - After securing their biggest victories of the season, Furman and Eastern Kentucky have vaulted into The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS Top 25. On Monday, the poll's national panel of sports information and media relations directors, broadcasters, writers and other dignitaries installed Furman at No. 17 and Eastern Kentucky at No. 25. It was Furman's first appearance in the rankings since Oct. 18, 2010, and Eastern Kentucky's first since Oct. 19, 2009. North Dakota State (9-0) remained a prohibitive No. 1 for the second straight week after booting Indiana State out of the rankings with a 27-16 road win in the Missouri Valley Football Conference. The Bison received 143 of the 161 first-place votes and 4,004 points. Big Sky Conference leader Montana State (9-1) remained at No. 2 with 16 first- place votes and Sam Houston State (9-0), which is the only unbeaten FCS team besides North Dakota State, moved up one spot to No. 3. The Bearkats, who received one first-place vote, have clinched at least a share of the Southland Conference title and its automatic bid to the FCS playoffs. Furman (6-3) sat in the shadows of the Southern Conference leaders for much of the season only to rise up and beat both Wofford and Appalachian State in the last three weeks, including Saturday's 20-10 victory over App State. The Paladins feature highly efficient quarterback Chris Forcier on offense and linebacker Kadarron Anderson and cornerback Ryan Steed on defense. - The Sports Network
