Baylor's WR Terrance Williams 6'2" 205 4.49 & IIRC 43 inch vert.
NC State's CB David Amerson 6'2" 194 4.50 36" vert

You can have big and fast in Jacoby Jones and still have little to boast on. With size usually the hip swivle and balance suffer. I agree with most of your thread but not RB. I argued for years that smaller backs not as good as bigger back in our system. Along comes Foster and Tate....I like a Forsett on roster for 8-10 carries but give me the 215+ guy that can bust 4.50.
I would wait for their respective combine numbers to confirm. School measurements are not always accurate or trustworthy.
