Not an impressive combine from Michael Sam from a numbers standpoint. Only 4.8 40, 25 1/2" vert, 9.06" broad, and 17 reps.

Here's a guy who was supposed to be an absolute physical freak. Then he comes to the combine lighter and weaker than expected. That shows a lack of dedication to the weight room.

His most recent tape shows him as a guy who's absolutely happy playing patty-cake with tackles and who stops running when the play is past him or away from him. And that's NOT the guy from his previous season(s) who was willing and able to run down running backs all the way down the field.

This guy has risk written all over him.
I think (& I don't want Clowney) once a big guy gets the "lacks motivation" tag, it's hard to shake. No matter who it is, once he gets that tag, there will be no shortage of "evidence" to support it. Nothing the guy can say, his coach, his teammates, his strength & conditioning coach, no one can say anything to shake it. The only thing he could have done, was go out & get more sacks. Didn't happen.

But I watched the guy & I saw a fast twitch, explosive mofo who everyone else said was taken plays off. I saw a guy who worked his tail off to drop 10 pounds & turn in an impressive combine... so far.

Guys talked about Mario taking plays off... but he still delivered (when he was healthy).

If I've got any issues with Clowney, it would be health related. How bad did those bone spurs lead to his lack of production in 2013 & is that what we have to look forward to in the NFL... ala Mario (who is still one of my favorite players).

Very impressive no doubt but why are people shocked? This guy was absolutely dominant in college. Of course he's going to test well.

I just didn't expect under 4.7. Somewhere in the 4.8s would have been good, but under 4.7? No, I didn't expect that.

Mayock -- There isn't any team that didn't pay Clowney special attention this year, be it double team/chps/TEs on his head/trying to extend him out further, They did everything they could, so he affected the game even though the statistics don't show it.

WR Brandon Cooks' time of 10.72 in the 60 yard shuttle is the fastest time ever in the NFL.com database.

Its a luxury pick, but I'm very tempted if this guy or OBJ fall to us in the 2nd round.

As I had not heard that Nix would attend I was surprised to see him doing his thing at combine. Looked good on his knee but I still am hesitant to mock him if we get a trade with Browns.

UCLA LB prospect Anthony Barr just ran a 4.66 unofficial 40, basically 2 full tenths of a second slower than Clowneys performance. And Barr is considered one of the top 3-4 edge rushers in this years Draft, double digit sacks in 2013.

I don't think there is such a thing as a luxury pick. Anything we can do to make this team better should be done. If that means we take a WR in the second round because they think he'll make our team better than any other player on the board..... you do it.


Not that you are, but we can't be thinking "We're set at WR" or TE, or OT or C or DE or LB..... We need to get the best talent available to us in the draft & fill holes with FA. If there aren't any good ILBs in this draft, we shouldn't take one because we need one. Take the best talent you can find in the draft & the hungriest, young ILB you can find in FA.

I have to admit, I am getting kind of tired of them talking about Michael Sam.

You've got LBers running 40s and they go to a panel to talk about Michael Sam, who they have been talking about all day. He didn't even have a good day. It's making this a lot less interesting to watch.
