Combine thread

Draft him and move him to TE.

oh, well maybe not.

Waiting for a webzoner to read what he ran and start a thread saying we should draft him just based on his 40. I'll be surprised if it doesn't happen.

Dtg, they break it down into 10 yd, 20 yd, and 40 yd splits. If you were watching the Combine, you would see most of the coaches seated with their stopwatches at the 10 yd mark. That first split is the most important time for lineman.

I think its all pretty irrelevant since they tape shows if you are explosive or not. The drills are important. Warmack had terrible times but was a technician with his footwork and his pulls were a thing of a beauty

It's funny how analysts tell people that u have to be a certain weight to play a position in nfl. I haven't been over 300 lbs in two years

Yes, but they also do cone drills and other drills that are more important for OLinemen. My comment was in reply to those citing the 40 times as an important measure...for linemen no, for WRs yes. Nice to have speed but quickness and agility, along with explosiveness are more important.

Lane Johnson had the best split after the first 10 yards supposedly.

Tyler Eifert, Chris Gragg, and Vance McDonald were all impressive to me athletically. Dion Sims is also very athletic for his size

Dion Sims did very well for himself with his size, great leaper too. Chris Gragg of Arkansas is the athletic freak of this draft at TE. Both of those guys made money today.

He may not test well but phillip lutzenkirchen of aubrun impressed me with every game i saw auburn play--he gets open and knows how to uncover in the red zone

He is one of the guys I have to go back and watch film on, it's always hard to evaluate him and players like him from bad teams with bad QB situations but from my notes he needs to work on his separation and route running; all teachable
