I don't get how someone can be such an athletic freak like Marcus Davis and still give such little effort. A 4.4 at 233 lbs. is absurd.

Rip his freaking head off!

That sound you just heard

Was MD7s draft stock spiraling downward

We put the K in Kwality

Wouldn't a good combine performance make it go up?

way off

man the nfl network timing was way off, they had 4.4 for a 4.56

super duper senior status

It's a 10th of a second, and the clocks at the combine, while stopped electronically, are started manually. There's a ton of error in these numbers. Never really understood the excitement over them, myself. If a guy plays fast (and you can tell when you watch them play), then they're fast, regardless of what some guy with a stopwatch says.

It was a catch

I think to give scouts more accuracy, I think all players should do the 40 yards with pads and without pads. It is deceptive when somebody blazes through the 40 yards, and then looks to be a step slow when going up against veteran defensive backs. I think that is one way to give scouts/coaches/GM a better barometer of what to expect when they actually draft said player(s).

I support Logan Thomas and make no apologies for it.

Painter

With him doing so well in a lot of these categories, I still don't see how they have him rated so lowly. I know he will only be a 6th or 7th round pick at best, but I believe he has a lot more potential than that. Could be bias since I went to HS with him, but I hope he finds a team that can groom him to be top tackle.

I imagine he's low, because you're just drafting potential. Newsome had in no way polished him. It's a shame.

It was a catch

Same deal with Duane Brown

But look where he is now

Duane Brown was still a First Round pick...Painter will not be.

My point was that he was drafted solely on potential

He might have had slightly better measurables, but he was still only something like 2nd team all-ACC.

ratings are old

Pretty sure they were showing these same ratings numbers before the combine started. And the writeups sound like they were written before last season and then given a quick update to include the latest stats.
