    Just reading through profiles and this seems like a great fit for the Titans in the 3rd round. Anyone have any first hand info on this guy? Apparently he ran a 4.43 at the combine on a slightly tweaked hammy. However, he decided to sit on those numbers at his pro day which at least raises some questions (since most expected that he had 4.3 speed). Maybe the hammy was still bothering him, though. In any case, 4.43 is a pretty solid time even if that is his true top speed. Regardless, he has some return skills, great speed and decent size. Just a pinch under 6 feet and 190. I'll also add that 16 reps at 225 is pretty impressive for someone his size. Of course, he put up some pretty good numbers at Houston (pass-happy offense).

    4.4 (at least) speed at 6-0 190 that averaged over 110 yards per game this past season doesn't sound like a project to me. And then he excelled at punt/kickoff returns as well. He may be flying under the radar because he played in Conference USA for a pass happy team.
