Default NFL Combine

The OL and TE measurements are in.

Man, some of these TEs are just big and long.
I haven't watched them all yet, but Fauria and Toilolo are definitely sleepers.
They will probably climb up the boards soon.

Barkley is unimpressive in interview to me. I have big concerns about his shoulder after the way he answered those questions. (Too much CourtTV)

I wouldn't touch him.

Funny, there's an O-Lineman with a 30" arm length.

QB Mike Glennon is 6'7".

Default Re: NFL Combine

I actually think it's best to trade away our first rounder for future draft choice; draft a receiver in the second or take a flyer with a guy like Marcus Davis later on. There are 3 guys in the next draft that I think highly of: Marquise Lee USC, Sammy Watkins Clemson, and the big dude from Rutgers that I forgot the name (he's at least 6'5 and is pretty fast and quick for that size.)

That is unless we don't have to sell out the farm to get Patterson or Allen.

~24% of all Combine participants this year are from the SEC.

Terron Armstead 6'5" 306 lbs ran an unofficial 4.65 40 yard dash --- fastest ever for an O-Lineman.

How fast is 4.65???

2012 -- Juron Criner, Jeff Fuller, Darius Hanks, Jerrell Jackson, Gerell Robinson all ran in the 4.6s
... and they're all Wide Receivers!

Disagree. This is one of the deepest drafts in years at many positions. I'd be stocking up on players.

If they have reservations, I think we could actually see them using their top pick for a Lane Johnson IF he was still on their Board at 27 ?

Looks like my dark horse is no longer in obscurity.

I think the Texans will draft an OT and let Newton be the swing tackle.

I know how I feel about Newton. He's not the long term (or short term) answer at RT. I do think he can be a decent guard, however.

The TE Vance McDonald had great form through out the bench press. Looks like an intriguing prospect.

Looks like people doubt his blocking though.

I like this guy. He looked pretty good at the Senior Bowl & has had decent combine. His blocking is supposedly good & he can catch. The Texans need a blocking TE who can catch when it's all said & done & I think McDonld could fit the bill later in the draft.

Deandre Hopkins, Cobi Hamilton, and Goard to a lesser extent popped out of that first group for me.

A smart GM would use him like Randall Cobb. Play him at RB, in the slot, return kicks, and try to groom him into a WR.

He's just as big and athletic as guys like Bernard and Randle but is getting no mention as a RB. It's astounding to me.

Default WR T.Austin & WR M.Goodwin run 4.25 forty times

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ring-40-times/

Quote:
Austin ran a 40-yard dash in an unofficial time of 4.25 seconds. If that holds up when all of the official times come in, it will be the second-fastest in the history of the NFL Scouting Combine, second only to Chris Johnson’s 4.24.

Except that just a couple minutes after Austin turned in his 40 time, Texas receiver Marquise Goodwin equaled it with a 4.25-second 40-yard dash of his own. Goodwin, who was in the Olympics last year as a long jumper, said before the Combine that he thought he could break Johnson’s record.
This has to be one of the faster WR groups this year. These are "unofficial first attempts on 40 times below.
