Kapanui is so overmatched in this TE group, it is painful to watch. 5.04 forty. WOW!

I have to admit: the more I watch Donald Thomas of Connecticut, the more I like. He's a bit top heavy in weight, but the guy can flat out run. He ran a 5.01 forty, and was one of the best looking guys in the pulling drill. He's got to be flirting with the top 100 picks. Maybe the third or fourth guard off the board.

So MadDog how is you board starting to change up?

It's is changing. I'll probably put up the changes as early as this evening on my pre-combine Big Board, and then create a post-combine board after it is finished.
One of my favorite OT's in this draft, Virginia Tech's Duane Brown, had a solid day today: 5.11, and looked smooth in drills. Impressive stuff. I like this guy more and more as our 4th round pick in the draft. He can play the RT spot, and do just fine.
Frank Okam at 347 pounds... With size like that, do we take him with the first round pick because there are so few who can play NT? He would require two blockers being that big and that is just what we need. How many reps at 225 did he have?
In his press conference today, Harvey stated he wants to run linebacker drills, and is looking for the coaches to give him the green light.

I think someone got the middle digit wrong in his weight, and he's at 271 instead of 291. It wouldn't make sense for him to even attempt to do LB drills at 291.

First.......no, not even close. Just being heavy doesn't warrant a 1st rnd pick.

UPDATE:

For those trying to pick up measurements for Adarius Bowman- 6'2 7/8", 223 pounds. He is imposing. His body is very similar to Terrell Owens.

Jordy Nelson- 6'2 1/2", 217. Another big kid.

For those looking at slot receivers, here are some key guys:
Dexter Jackson- 5'9 1/2", 182 pounds. Says he is going to hopefully run a 4.28.
Lavelle Hawkins- 5'11", 187.
Eddie Royal-5'9 1/2", 184
Davone Bess- 5'9 3/4", 194
Darius Reynaud- 5'9", 200


I think we should take Bowman with our 2nd if possible...

that would be good if teams start to see a comparison wit terrell owens. but i wanna see how he does with catching the football.

Just weighed in, I didn't see his height but he weighed 276....right where I thought he would be I'm excited!
Sedrick Ellis measured in at 6', 309. Fire hydrant.
Second source has Harvey at 271, not 291.

Erin Henderson at 6'2, 244. I love this kid. Will be a terrific cover LB, like Manny Lawson.
