    Mannigham will probably go late in round one or early in round two now that he had a good workout. He is a quality WR but teams will prefer the bigger WRs first IMO and DeShawn will go earlier than he should because of his return ability. Sweed, Kelly, Thomas, Hardy and DeShawn will probably go before Manningham IMO.

    It will be interesting to see which players the Titans have in for a workout.

    All these guys get paid a lot of money and talk to NFL scouts I just listed about 5 websites that don't think he is 1st round material. ESPN has Sweed as the 18 best player in the draft and Manningham as the 27th. So if you think according to ESPN that Manningham is a 1st round linebacker then you have to recognize the fact that they think Sweed is the better receiver of the two.

    As for receivers in this draft ESPN has them currently ranked like this.
    1. Malcom Kelly
    2. Limus Sweed
    3. Deshaun Jackson
    4. James Hardy
    5. Mario Manningham

    Manningham, Felix Jones, DJackson, or Groves would be fine with me.

  7. Do you watch ESPN at all? Mel Kiper has Manningham going 16th or 17th with Sweed going to the Titans at 24th. This was before he dropped Sweed and had Mayo going to the Titans at 24.

  8. Last time I checked a 40 time has absolutely nothing to do with football. Speed is important, obviously, but when it comes to running routes and the ability to catch the ball in important situations Manningham takes the top spot.

    How about running backs??
    Justin Fargas
    Derrick Blaylock
    Tatum Bell
    Michael Bennett
    Maurice Jones Drew

    1 guy in the last 7 years that turned out to be good. 40 times mean nothing.

    How many of those guys were 6'4 220 lb guys and still ran a 4.4 40.

    You left out Roy Williams who also ran a 4.3 40, How about that crappy Deon Saunders, one of the fastest to ever play the game.
