Now that's an athletic mofo.

There's some talent in this draft for sure. Lot-o-freaks.

Just like your not going to like another QB not named Bridgewater.

You must not read many other posts. Broaddus top QB is Brett Smith. I can understand how this can happen with all of your Bridgewater mental masturbation.

Ryan Mallett threw at Arkansas' Pro Day


Chris Mortensen ‏@mortreport
Quote:
A handful of evaluators have greater confidence re: Buffalo LB Khalil Mack than Jadeveon Clowney. Mack's skills, consistency & versatility

Quote:
* Blake Bortles' stock has taken as wild of a swing as I've ever seen in a three-week span. Heading into the combine, Bortles was largely touted as a potential No. 1 overall pick.

Now? Team scouts aren't as in love with him after seeing him in person. Bortles could still go first overall, but that is based more on need than talent.

* The league-wide reaction to Khalil Mack's pro day was expected, but still impressive. One team scout I spoke with following Mack's 4.55-second 40-yard dash said he doesn't expect the attacking University of Buffalo edge-defender to make it out of the top five picks.

* Everyone loves sleeper quarterbacks, and one name to keep in mind is Tom Savage from Pitt. With 30 NFL teams represented at the team's pro day (many to see defensive tackle Aaron Donald), Savage wowed teams with his big arm and footwork. A late-to-middle-round project at the position, Savage's stock is on the rise.

Purdue offensive tackle Kevin Pamphile is generating buzz as an ascending draft prospect
Quote:
The athletic 6-foot-4 1/2, 311-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 4.92 and 4.94 seconds with a 10-yard split of 1.69 seconds. He had a 32-inch vertical leap and a 9-foot broad jump, also bench pressing 225 pounds 25 times.

According to one NFL scout that attended the workout, Pampile "looked very athletic and fluid in his movement skill and positional work. He had a great day and really helped himself."

Pampile has several upcoming private workouts scheduedl.

Among the teams displaying interest in Pampile: the New York Giants, Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, Houston Texans, Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs, St. Louis Rams and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Even worse.

I said before I'd get behind Blake Bortles, but I'd be incredibly disappointed with passing on TB.

Yawin Smallwood did not run but participated in position drills. Smallwood, whom I'm told has been struggling with a bad hamstring for more than a month, ran just one forty at the combine, timing an official 5.01s electronically and a hand-timed best of 4.99s.

That's why I don't really even pay attention to pro day 40's or if a guy was injured or didn't participate at the combine I'll add time to their pro day 40.

Not that the 40 is the b.a.e.a, but it's still a nice tool to use..

2014 NFL Draft: Highlighting Prospects Who Aren't Getting Enough Hype
Quote:
...highly skilled prospects seem to slip through the cracks as media and NFL personnel alike try to peg the best of the bunch.

Some prospects become household names before they even strap on an NFL helmet. Other guys manage highly successful collegiate careers, yet somehow seem to be lost in the shuffle.

It’s hard to say why certain guys get a first-class seat while others are left behind on the annual hype train headed straight for Radio City Music Hall.

Whatever the case may be, this list is a tribute to a few of those who were left scratching their head back at the train station while other names are quickly infused into our daily vernacular.

You may not be completely familiar with these prospects now, but before the sun sets on their careers years from now, you most likely will be...

Shaquil Barrett will be a steal for somebody in the 6th or 7th round. I'd move him inside and put him next to Cushing. He could really do some damage from inside.

Shaquil Barrett, OLB (6-1 3/8, 251) — Barrett — the Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year for 2013 — ran the 40 in 4.78, 4.74 and 4.73 seconds. He had a 29-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-5 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.42 seconds and the three-cone in 6.90 seconds. He performed 16 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press.

His numbers seem pretty sorry to me. Pretty weak too for a Linebacker. All good though, if you're a gamer, you're a gamer and if Bah007 thinks there is a chance he can contribute late I definitely won't dismiss him.

Gonna need to get quicker and stronger though if he wants to compete on STs until he's ready to be molded into an NFL LB.

He's not a fantastic athlete, which is why I think he would be better served to move inside in the NFL. I don't think he's an edge rusher. But he's a football player. Some guys just have it when the pads are on. I don't think he'll ever be an All Pro or anything. But he'll give you more than you expect from a 6th/7th rounder.

When I watched Colorado St to check out Bibbs, this kid just jumped out on every single defensive series.

Savage has impressed some people. Wouldn't be shocked if someone took a shot at him in the 5th or 6th round.

That's what I see. Nose for the ball, read/react, good tackler... quicker in pads than his times indicate, plays to the whistle. Nick pick up, 00.
