"Texas FS Kenny Vaccaro ran forty times of 4.59 and 4.63 at the NFL Scouting Combine.
They're not sensational times at first glance, but Vaccaro weighs 214 pounds and is very light on his feet even if his straight-line speed isn't sensational. In last year's West Virginia-Texas game, Vaccaro gave Tavon Austin all kinds of problems in the slot; Austin was only able to get open against Texas' other DBs. Vaccaro remains a strong candidate to be drafted in the top 25."
"Washington CB Desmond Trufant ran forty times of 4.31 and 4.38 at the NFL Scouting Combine.
The forty times are nothing short of outstanding for a 6-foot, 190-pound corner. Trufant has good-not-great game tape, but he'll move up draft boards because his offseason has been spectacular. By all accounts, Trufant looked every bit a first-rounder at the Senior Bowl, and his Combine has obviously opened more eyes. We could see him drafted in the top 20, perhaps even higher."
"Florida State CB Xavier Rhodes ran forty times of 4.41 and 4.41 at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Rhodes is a bit of a size-speed athletic freak at 6-foot-2, 210 with low 4.4 wheels. Although there has been some discussion of Rhodes moving to safety, he's more likely to be drafted as a cornerback in a press-man coverage scheme. Rhodes has shown playmaking ability on the ball and possesses physical traits to develop into a legit No. 1 NFL corner. He's a surefire top-20 overall pick."
"Oregon State CB Jordan Poyer ran forty times of 4.46 and 4.50 at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Poyer stands 6-foot, 191 and intercepted seven passes as a college senior before showing well in practices and the Senior Bowl game at Mobile. Most draftniks did not expect Poyer to run this well. Poyer's combination of size and speed may lead NFL teams to project him as a future No. 2-caliber corner starter."
Geez, is everyone projected to go in the top 20? I swear I have read at least 40 players that are projected to go in the top 20
