Combine Chatter

Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
6'0" 213--4.32/40
Jackson is the player that has gained the most so far by his combine performance. Not only did he run a scorching 40 time, he looked great in drills. In this so-so WR class, Jackson made himself a lot of money this week and probably earned his way into the 1st round.

Devin Aromashodu, WR, Auburn
6'2" 195--4.35/40
This guy was a virtual unknown last month. Now after a great Senior Bowl and throwing down a 4.3 at the combine with good size, he may be one of the top 5 receivers selected in April.

D'brickashaw Furguson, OT, Virginia
6'6" 313
Furguson is doing everything right this offseason. He performed well in drills at the Senior Bowl and now shows up in Indy at 313 pounds. His knock is size/strength. The weight helps, but we'll have to see how he lifts.

Reggie Bush, RB, USC
5' 10 7/8" 201
You know Reggie has been bulking up since the Rose Bowl. If thats as much weight he can put on, he might be in trouble. I expected him to waltz in near 215. Measuring below 5'11" probably doesn't help either. Kind of weird that the day after Reggie weighs in, the Texans are rumored to want to trade down. Although, I didn't buy the Reggie at #1 hype in the first place.

Brad Smith, QB/WR, Missouri
6'2" 215--4.46
I'm pretty dissapointed with Smith--a member of my All-Underrated Team back in November. Not because of his measurables, but his unwillingness to workout as a WR. He could have been setting himself up to be a major player among this WR class.
Smith has ALL the measurables for it. He has size, speed, absurd RAC ability and big strong hands. But, he wants to be a QB and its going to hurt him. Reports are his QB workout was poor.

Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland
6'3" 254--4.38
Just to show he's not all about speed, Vernon put up 33 reps on the bench press, had a 42 inch vertical jump to go along with his rediculous 40 yard dash. All were tops for tight ends. San Francisco at #6?

Mario Williams, DE, NC State
6'7" 295--4.66
This guy is putting himself in position to potentially be the top prospect in the draft. He's been getting comparisons to Julius Pepper, but his numbers at the combine are even better. Also had a 40 inch vertical. Scary at almost 300 pounds.

Manny Lawson, OLB/DE, NC State
6'5" 240--4.41
I don't know what they were serving for breakfast Monday, but there were some insane numbers put up by some large men. Lawson is having a great postseason. Easily the best OLB prospect for the 34 defense.

Mike Kudla, DE, Ohio State
Brodrick Bunkley, DT, Florida State
These two went off in the bench press drill. Bunkley lifted the 225 pound bar 44 times. Kudla tied the combine record, held by Isaac Sopoaga, with 45 reps.

Well, the defensive backs didn't dissapoint Tuesday. They were all blazing.
Tye Hill, Clemson--4.30
Johnathan Joseph, S. Carolina--4.31
Tim Jennings, Georgia--4.32
Michael Huff, Texas--4.34
Daniel Bullocks, Nebraska--4.38
Willie Andrews, Baylor--4.38
Antonio Cromartie, Florida State--4.39
Antoine Bethea, Howard--4.39
Jason Allen, Tennessee--4.39
Kelly Jennings, Miami--4.39
Donte Whitner, Ohio State--4.40
Pat Watkins, Florida State--4.42

I hope you been watching the CBA news, it looks bad bro, and just like I told you there will be no NFL Draft in 2008.

"What does the NFL lose if it doesn't negotiate a CBA extension?"
"Labor peace. In 2008, the NFL will either be on strike or the owners will lock out the players. That's not going to play well with networks investing a total of $100 million a year in rights fees. The union will decertify and then antitrust rules will apply. The NFL draft will go away in 2008 as part of a clause inserted in the current CBA if it expires. Naturally, the NFL will try to implement a system, but the NFLPA will sue and both sides will be spending all of their time in court. To get players out of college, it could be open negotiations. Minimum salaries for all players will be eliminated in 2007, so every contract, including those for rookies coming out of college, has to be negotiated individually and those players get what they can get. Players probably can sue if their contracts are traded. Every single move of the league will be under legal scrutiny."
