    Perry, Curry just cemented himself as a 2nd round pick and definitely out of my top 5 pass rushers (4-3 DE/3-4 olbs)

    Yeah I was disappointed with Curry in the combine. He's SO good on tape though.

    Tape is all that matters, IMO. This could be a good thing for us.

    Tape shows skills but it's the combine that really helps showing peoples athletic potential. I think Curry will be a good football player but I have serious doubt's about him being a difference maker in the NFL.

    A good example is Pierre-paul vs. Morgan from two years ago. Morgan was a much better player on tape coming out of college bu anyone with half a brain could tell you that JPP had more potential.

    Same thing was said about Vernon Gholson too though.

    I really think these combine drills have way too much affect on these guys' draft stocks.

    I like what Janoris Jenkins did today. Would love to see him fall to us. Though I doubt he gets past the Cowboys..

    I doubt they take a CB in the 1st or 2nd, they're gonna sign Finnegan.

    Combines are way overrated, don't even pay attention to them.
