    here is a Bleecher report, yeah I know, that highlights 15 players who should perform well @ the combine: they even have a clip on Mike Martin, NT Michigan widely disputed here in regards to draft grade, rmartin65 no relation? Has him mocked to Texans in 3rd rd. which would be nice pick, if he's still there? http://bleacherreport.com/articles/...ominate-the-40-bench-and-other-drills/page/15
    For all the rest just click on the link & make your favorite selection, Who will shine in this years, 2012 Combine? Personally I hope that Joe Adams doesn't run a sub 4.35 or something, really like Texans to have a shot @ him in 2nd. (never mind Bleecher has a 4th rd. grade).http://bleacherreport.com/articles/...ominate-the-40-bench-and-other-drills/page/14 Joe Adams is close as Texans will get to Wright in this draft.

    Nice find BL. Bleacher Report is not a terrible source, you just need to realize it is just like our board here- a bunch of guys who like the draft/NFL, but are by no means experts.

    I am not related to Mike Martin, just to clarify. But I do see him dominating the bench, and surprising at the 40. And alas, I do see him moving down into the second, just as the article states.

    This looks like it is going to be a fast combine- a lot of these receivers and DBs are in the 4.3s, and a few have been times in the 4.2s. it will be something to watch.

    Rg3 just ran 4.38 40 at 24.9 miles per hour I think they said, damn I'm not sure I can ride my bike that fast. LOL. I can't wait to see the WR's later today.

    And he's a great blocker

    Bad hands though.

    Former georgia state sprint champion, was a sleeper of mine.

    NFL evalauation is a little more complex than one forty yard dash moving a guy up or down significantly. Al Davis is no longer with us.

    He looked good in catching drills, I know it's more than the 40 but he is going to have a lot of scouts going back to his tapes after today

    They're going to see a guy who wasn't thrown to much. Why would a top WR recruit ever go to GA Tech?

    That's what I was thinking. I am looking forward to watching the Baylor kid Wright also.

    Even a white dude ran in 4,30s , This year the WR class has some speed like we have not seen in awhile, What a great year to go in the draft with WR as a top need.

    Very impressed with RGIII's interview on NFL Network right now. I've never really watched him or heard him speak and the first thing I got right away is that this guy is smart. There is a sense of calm about him and he has a presence about him. It was just one short interview but man it impressed the hell out of me.

    Consider me off the draft Sanu wagon. I know it's the 40 time isn't even that important but I figured Sanu needed to hit a 4.5 for scouts/gm's to go "I can live with that speed". He'd be a great 2nd round pick though if we get some other player in the 1st.

    Also, the best part of the combine is Rich Eisen being superimposed on the 40 times of Luck, Newton and Griffin with a 6 yard head start.

    Wow Kendal wright was not as fast as expected. Maybe he will fall to #26. The real question is whether or not smithiack would use a first round pick on a smaller WR. Especially when there should be some bigger faster guys available later in the draft.
