    Devier Posey is a first round talent that will go in the third. Hopefully we draft him because he'd be a huge steal

    posey is going to be a decent receiver and he really helped his stock today as far as the speed question with him but i think robert turbine or whatever his name is really helped his stock today though too.....rainey looks faster with pads on too

    The reason why he didn't run it I believe is if he didn't run at least a 4.5 his draft stock would have took a big drop.

    Blackmon has a hamstring injury right now

    Trent had surgery in Jan.

    One thing interesting to me is that Kendall Wright ran a 4.6 and supposedly looked pretty mediocre with his routes.

    My man A.J. Jenkins had a solid combine. Would love to take him with a 4th (our potential comp pick) or a 5th.

    6'0 190, 4.39 40, 38 1/2 Vert, 10'04 Broad Jump
    90 rec 1276 yards 8 TDs his senior year
    Runs amazing routes, and gets seperation. Plus he was a deep threat all year, seemed always to be open downfield. Would be a solid #4/#5 WR and be able to battle with Mariani & Hawkins.

    I love Jenkins. Illinois's offense was anemic for most of the year and he still found ways to contribute. Given the right opportunity, he will be a very productive player in the league.

    I was very surprised by Wright's overall performance. I was thinking he was going to be a low 4.4 guy. I was surprised that Joe Adams wasn't any faster/quicker than he tested. I thought he would really knock the socks off of the 3 cone drill. Rainey ruled the the day on quickness/change of direction drills. I think he will be that gadget sort of player that an inventive OC will know how to put to use.

    Today is the big day to see how these DL/Lbers run. Although it is always hard to get the 10sec split times which is what is most important for the edge rushers.
