The problem with all of things you mention about what make him a top TE in the draft are being measured, and some of them don't appear to be putting him on top. 40 time, weight drills, etc all speak to his athleticism. He has never been a very good blocker for his size. I saw some comment in here about him being "ok" in passing drills. What is he really doing to distinguish himself this weekend?
And this is all speculation until the draft actually happens.
The Dude abides. I don't know about you but I take comfort in that. It's good knowin' he's out there. The Dude.
MarQueis Gray from Minnesota (who killed us in 2011) just ran a 4.69 at 240lbs, not too bad.
T Austin (WVU) - 4.25
M Goodwin (Texas) - 4.25
WR unofficials. Wow.
Impressive. I'm a big fan of Tavon Austin. The shit he did at WVU is insane.
Goodwin's a top track and field star so that number doesn't surprise me. Anyone who watched WVU play last year would believe that number from Austin. He was frighteningly fast at times.
He will have a return TD in 2013 if given the job by a team.
Watching Tavon Austin highlights on youtube is what gets Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz aroused..
I know Tavon is a WR but he could be the spark plug the Lions need, kinda like Best was for them. I think he also can play some RB.
gonna get killed in tNFL
perfect for the lions

Wow 2 guys already sub 4.3....4.4 is the new normal seems like.
Those are unofficial remember. And keep in mind they're both like 5'9 174 and 5'9 183.
Watching the wideouts running these 9 routes on NFL.com , couple of guys I hope the lions look at are Hopkins from Clemson and Harrison from Rutgers, please no more 5'7 slot guys that are minimal threats...
so mattyfresh and so clean
They're both 4.4-4.5 guys, 6'3 220's with big hands
I think he's a fairly good color guy (which is what he's done for the last 25+ years), but I've never found his draft analysis to be very good. For example, he said Sims value is in his inline blocking. Sims has become a better blocker but was still more of a liability than an asset in run-blocking. He seems to make shortcut judgments based on minimal analysis. He has never had an actual scouting job or a job with an NFL team. He's a Pre-Lions Matt Millen without the Super Bowl rings.
Johnny Adams apparently weighed in at 185lbs today. Should help his stock if he can keep his speed.
The forty times at the combine have improved over the last couple of years since the players now run the forty on a laid out track strip instead of on the regular field turf.
Denarded ran a 4.34.
No surprise there. Should help his stock.
Adams at 5'10 185lbs.
Pretty fast track.
So far we have 8 WRs who have ran sub-4.4 speeds.
Wtf is Denard doing? Not ragging on him, I just don't know what he's doing.
Glad to not have to worry about chasing after him anymore. UM has no speed on offense this year that comes close to Denard.
4.45 this time for the Detard, what happened to 4.34?
I thought he could beat Usain Bolt though?
Him and Gholston both. One of my friends thought that the athletic department should either make all athletes go through a mandatory sex-ed class or just include condoms in their package of MSU stuff
Coaches who can outline plays on a black board are a dime a dozen. The ones who win get inside their player and motivate.
