We can keep observations, times, etc. in here for the duration of the Combine.

Thanks

Tell ya what, Andrew Luck, if RGIII wasn't here, would be being lauded for being an amazing athlete.

Higher vert leap than Cam. longer broad jump that RGIII.

Dude's got some explosion of his own.

Both these guys are ridiculous out here w/o event throwing.

Do they announce Wonderlic scores , or is that one of those things that gets "leaked" out every year?

What's annoying is the posting of the unofficial times then the official times being so much different. Don't post the shit til it's official.

Not that hard.

Maybe. But they're posted to NFL.com on their combine coverage. The league should make sure what they're posting is official.

I can't remember the discrepancies ever being this large. Usually, I don't think it's an issue. But 4.3s going to 4.5s and 4.4s going to 4.6s is a bit much.

Also, Mike Adams & Zebrie Sanders in the 5.4s is kind of OG-level athleticism from those two. Cordy Glenn at 5.15 is very good, though. And he was already someone I'd thought we could be looking at at 22 if we still have the pick.

Boy, I really want no part of Mike Adams at all. 19 reps of 225lbs isn't just sad and pathetic but it's also not surprising with him. I don't want a kid in the top 37 (if you even have those picks when it comes down to it) with interest and desire questions.

He's a fucking knucklehead.

If he slips to 3rd or early 4th then hell yes, take your chance on value and roll the dice that Warhop can rebuild him.

YMMV

SD:

You have to adjust those bench press marks for guys with super long arms .

Adams has length and true size and solid footwork and time to grow up from a team which lacked discipline from the Head coach to the water boy at TOSU the last two years.

That we even have the 37 may be in doubt as the RG3 sweepstakes exscalates , but if we mange to snag Griffin and Adams is there at 37 and we have the pick and haven't upgraded the position in free agency

Take him .

Adjusted bench reps for super long arms means he still should at least be around 23-27.

Do you think the discepencies are indicitive of a timing problem? I mean, I don't remember this many burner WRs (I watched a lot of Posey, he is fast) showing this slowly....

Glenn and his 35 3/4" arms did 31 reps.

Adams and his 34" arms did 19.

And your guess is as good as mine RE: some of those slow times. Maybe the DBs will all time in the 4.5s & 4.6s, and we can blame them for making some of these WRs look so fast on Saturdays.

NFLDS had him at #88 before today's 5 second 40s. Awhile back, that kind of speed dropped Dra Davis from a 2nd round prospect to a 5th rounder, and he didn't have the personality quirks of Burfict.

SD:

Its why we're talking second round or later for a kid this size , he doesn't have a pro ready body and he's not in first round shape .

25-28 reps with his size and there is no way we touch him after the first .

Wouldn't be surprised he's gotten by on his size and didn't work at it , which won't cut it at this level , but somewhere you have to be able to coach em up and get to their brains which a solid locker room with leaders can accomplish , which we're still working on

You can't however coach size ,so he definitely brings something to the table

One of the quotes under that story cracked me up.

Yeah I'd like to see him take a swing at Ray Lewis or Jerome Harrison.


Why should Burfict be afraid to throw a punch at Jerome Harrison?
