    If the reports are true, im guessing Calvin Johnson will have the highest leap...

    Peterson can leap too.

    He can jump a 36" box with a 45lb free weight in each hand. That is impressive.

    Amobi Okoye is just ridiculous....i found this article i remember reading a long time ago. I don't know if he will break 50....but when you can

    at the age of 16....I'd say you've got a fair shot. Lord knows what he would be able to do at 22. I mean think about it....a lot of blue chip prospects haven't even played their first college game at 19 (redshirts) and yet this kid is about to be drafted. He still has potential for more natural growth and ability.

    He was from Africa. When he came to America, he took a test to see what grade level he would be best in, and he tested out to be a 9th grader at age 12.

    Same could be said about Ginn becuase: 1) he hasn't even declared yet 2) the injury might keep him from running for a bit or being ready 3) top prospects never really do much at the combine and keep preparing for their respective pro day (which is usually in late March as apposed to February).

    the difference is that ginn's position in the draft is pretty much based solely on his speed. if he declares, he better attend the combine if he wants to rid of any question marks.

    I think everyone knows Ginn can fly and will be able to fly when healthy. Whats really going to effect his draft stock is his actual ability to run routes and create separation with something other than just speed. Because in my opinion....thats the only way he got his catches this year...blowing by others. He needs to show he can do it in other ways because in the NFL....those CB's are just as fast as you....as well as bigger than you average college DB.

    PS - his run blocking has got to be just abysmal too....i'd imagine....i don't know though i've never paid attention.
