If we were a super bowl contender and only missing piece was CB, then I would draft Haden in 1st round but we many other needs.
Scouts usually add 0.06 sec to the players on a 40-yard during pro-day; however, I have read reports saying due to the rainy conditions, and the fact that the track was not in ideal condition due to the weather and lacked some of the proper traction, etc. they would subtract 0.05 sec from the Florida pro-day run. Therefore, Haden's pro day was a pretty accurate measure of how fast he is.
I'm still not sold on his abilities as a corner, but at the same point, I won't deny him something that he did legitimately.
