I think he's right about shorter rushers getting leverage .

Hello UDFA.
5' 9", 174#, 8 reps on the bench (worst among RBs), 4.50 40, 32 inch vertical (among the worst), 124 inch broach jump (but this is good).



I feel sorry for that kid.

Never liked De'Anthony Thomas as a pro prospect. Best case scenario he was Dante Hall or Trindon Holliday. Worst case he left school early for no reason and has played his last football.

He's a special teams weapon only. On offense, he's either a WR who can't run routes or catch, or he's a RB who can only run fly sweeps.

He got injured and had his spot taken by a better player.

He wanted to be used differently than Oregon wanted to use him. I respect his toughness and desire but the writing was on the wall and he refused to try to be anything other than an inside the tackles runner.

As far as I know, he has never been considered as anything other than a RS - return specialist. It's just that this isn't a named position, so he's listed as a RB.

I want cooks at 2.1 for the slot.

Quote:
According to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union Tribune, former San Diego State running back Adam Muema has left the NFL scouting combine on Sunday due to religious reasons.

He believes if he does what God told him to do (leave the combine) he would realize his dream of playing for the Seattle Seawawks.

“Can’t go wrong with God,” Muema said. “(He) told me to sit down, be quiet, enjoy the peace.”

Paying big bucks for advice doesn't mean you're actually getting good advice.

Not sure how not performing (TB) is worse than a poorish performance (Clowney) but there it is.

So an unofficial 4.47 for Clowney. It looked slower, I think it gets pushed back officially to around a 4.52.

EDIT- I should add it was his first run.

Alphabetical order, so Clowney up early. Mayoc just said he saw him a HS all star game few years ago and he was heavier then than now at 266.
4.47 unofficial. 4.55 ish official probably, so not bad. Clowney is smooth, like a track athlete or
basketball player, not at all chiseled.
