    Obviosuly the athleticism of Luck and RG3 was just amazing. I personally knew that both would shine but I was a little surprise to see Luck be some comparable to Cam's numbers. I understand Cam is bigger but Luck put on a show and I cannot wait to see them throw at their pro days.

    Jordan Jefferson is a shorts and shirts throwing specialist, kid has a cannon and showed it. He lacks the decision making and understanding it takes to be a starter but he will either end up learning it or becoming an AFL legend.

    Fast white guys Danny Coale and the other receiver "Wiggles" from SDSU i think burned it up too. As a once fast black guy I really respect that LOL.

    Stephen HIll was phenomenal great hands and I had no clue he was 4.3 fast.

    Michael Floyd's time solidified himself as a 1st round pick.


    The Miami boys speed was fun to watch Streeter, Benjamin, and Lamar Miller all going sup 4.4 on unoffical times was sick.

    Matt Kalil solidified himself as a top5 pick great work out for him

    Cordy Glenn and the OL Gettis from Iowas really impressed me also.

    WHo do you guys think the next best back after Trent is??

    Also maybe throw out your top 5 pick Mock include any trade you think happens.

    mine

    Colts- Andrew Luck
    Redskins- RG3
    Vikings - Matt Kalil
    Browns- ??? Maybe trade down or take Blackmon or Coples
    Bucs- Claiborne

    I just keep thinking about Matt Flynn. IIRC, Flynn looked inept at running an offense at LSU and under Miles. Then he goes to the NFL and immediately beats out 2nd round pick Brian Brohm. A few years later, there are teams looking at potentially trading for him to become their starter. Then there's JaMarcus Russell. He was also pretty much inept at LSU. He had some other issues that are all on him but that doesn't deny that his skill set was wasted at LSU.

    Now you get Jordan Jefferson. He's got the skills but looked horrible running that offense. He's a different type of QB than Flynn or Russell but a big part of me is just wondering how much Les Miles and his staff suck at coaching QBs. How much better would he be had he gone to a different school? I think there's been enough consistency there that he could potentially turn into a good NFL QB. Still wouldn't take him higher than the 3rd or 4th round though if I really bought into this theory.

    QBs going to LSU are asking for a death sentence

    Truthfully i was shocked by AJ Jenkins 40 time i guess Illinois never really showed his skill set. I know the knock on him is he gets jammed quite a bit but the man was doubled and constantly had everyone watching him on the field and still had a great year. He truly has great hands and can be elusive i think he will be a great slot guy for sure in the nfl

    he like some other guys didnt play at the speed that they ran in the 40. Jenkins did impress me at Senior Bowl though. Good player for sure.

    Mychal Kendricks ILB California had a very impressive combine. He truly outclassed all the LBS that participated in the combine and is a very athletic LB

    Yep, was referring to mainly Turbin with my "huge ass arms" comment. Looks like he was taking workout tips from Thomas Jones.

    BRANDON BOLDEN. This guy will be a steal for somebody in the fourth or fifth. Has played behind weak OLs with absolutely no qb for the last two years. Excellent hands, good blocker and hits the hole with no dancing. 6 foot, 220 to 230. Think BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

    Claiborne showed off why he is the #1 rated Cb in this years draft. He uses his hips very very good when covering guys. His turns are sharp and really controls his body well. While he isnt the fastest guy out there at a 4.50 he has the pursuit angles down and closing speed. He definitely showed why he will be the #1 Cb taken in this years draft

    Janoris Jenkins while being undersized could be a very elite corner in the NFL. From North Alabama he has all the makings of a superstar but will need to go somewhere that will keep him in line. Will need a veteran to take him under his wing and show him how to conduct off the field. Watching him it was really impressive and hope he can keep his head on his shoulders.

    He will turn a 4.4 something at pro day and keep his stock very high. Plus his ability as a returner that showed some elusiveness helps. Also in a copy cat league the impact PP made makes GM's covet him coming from the same secondary a year later.

    I have not watched it yet but I'm guessing JJ diosplayed some of the best footowrk, transitions, and hip fluidity out of the Defensive backs group at the combine. He's a naturally smooth athlete who is still growing into the ins and outs and techniques of the position. He like Joe Haden played a ton of quarterback and offense in HS and played defense if they needed him too. So the sky is the limit.
