How is fellow Combine-Warrior Vernan Davis doing so far?
Mario had the stats to go with him as well though. They were a bit one-sided, but he had them to go along with his combine results...

The big knock was that he made his stats against crappy teams and scrub O-Linemen, where he got destroyed by real college lines (even with them doubeling Lawson all game).

Peppers did the same thing however.

He was at the top of the Board of no less an authority on football talent than one Bill Parsells.
And I'm not necessarily saying I agreed with Parsells, but who am I (or you for that matter) to say if Parsells ranked him as the top prospect ?

Yep, but Tuna said he based it on combine stats alone, and in that reguard, he was a pure freak, which is true. The kid is a freak.

I saw Parsells on an ESPN pre-game show last month say Mario was on the top of his Draft Board, his/the Dallas Cowboys Board where he was the HC at the time of the 2006 Draft. He said, and I'm paraphrasing, but "you don't pass up that kind of a prospect because they don't come along very often".
You can say he reached that conclusion more on the basis of the Indy combine/Pro Day results, whatever, I really don't care but he was Parsells top-rated player coming out of college in 2006. End of story.
