    Ross allayed speed concerns, but game film shows him getting torched by Figurs and Ginn (maybe the two fastest guys in football). Griffin helped himself, will continue to make plays and mistakes in the NFL. Landry looks like an absolute beast with that time, probly deserves to be considered in the Ed Reed/Polamalu echelon. Houston looks like a real physical specimen with that time and his 27 reps, there were a few speed concerns there.

    Too fast. He's wasted there if he has any cover skills at all, and I assume
    he does since he's so highly rated. This may be our corner to play across
    from Dunta.
    Leon Halls 40 isn't too shabby either.

    There's more to being a corner than being fast.

    I thought they were saying Nelson was going to be one of the fastest guys at the combine and prob convert to corner? I guess not I would much rather take Landry at 8 then now if he did run that. if he is good enough we could put him at corner but if not keep him at strong. win win situation

    I'd have no complaints if the Texans took him.

    If he can play corner, I'd have no problem taking him with the #8 pick. None whatsoever.

    I think he acknowledged that by saying, "if he has any cover skills at all"

    He might not be the best cover guy right now, but you can teach that stuff... you can't teach 4.35

    I really like Nelson but I think Landry has more potential.

    too fast? that's kind of ridiculous to be considered "too fast". In today's NFL you WANT fast FS's because they are often locked in man coverage.....corners have better hips than Landry....you have to be able to sprint backwards and have fluid hips to turn and run...just because you run fast doesn't mean you can play cornerback or we would just see every track and field guy back there.

    We know we'll be seeing Vince Young and Manning for the next decade, so Landry would be helpful.

    I totally agree with you Thunderkyss !
    This is great news for us, and for Landry. He made himself a ton of greenbacks today. And it also makes our #8 more valuable.
    And being a safety, I assume this guy can hit. I'm thinking he's also got good size ?
    I'm excited about this, because it gives us another very real option for #8 -
    not a reach.
    I sure hope that 4.35 is legitimate ?

    Landry reminds me of a faster Blaine Bishop. They were both very physical and have good instincts.
