Right where they thought LVE would run 4.66

He's also heavier now Mayock was just saying. Played at 240-ish. I say his position in the NFL is OLB.

At 256 vs the 240 he was listed in college, as well.

Excited to see the DBs on Monday. This LB class is starting to make me feel better about a 1st round DB.

Disappointing for Worley

So going just by the combine Trumaine Edmunds is the Steelers dream scenario. Height, Weight, Speed, Freakish Athleticism, Tape and 19 years old. Checks every box. :lol:

I was told a couple years ago Lorenzo Carter was a super freak

He may have the most complete tool box of any backer in this draft

Played inside and outside for an elite team in an elite conference

Looking like Carter gone before the Steelers pick. Wow today.

Interesting to see what Smith does.

I figured Baker would show better in undershorts than Worley, but yeah, he hasn't looked great.

Evens looked good in that drill

LVE looked good as well

100% agree




How do you reconcile that your man Tomlin has so much say in our grocery shopping?

I've had the same feelings of dread about the Steelers draft since at least 1996.

Tremaine Edmunds at 253lbs and those 36" arms 4.55 /40 and all of 19 yrs old. Wow

That might not be a football player, but it's a hell of an athlete. Jesus.

Gotta go back and look for the Jacobs kid from the Badgers. Can't remember many standout plays, but height/weight/speed checks out.

4.7 for Leonard.

Jacobs can play a little. Was never The Man, but he's very athletic.

Despite the overwhelming sense of dread, Sweat ticked off a few explosion boxes today.

Like B2B and 77 I too would like to take a moment to voice my displeasure with the combine coverage.

Thanks to weekend soccer commitments (effing soccer blows). I’m way behind on my combine watching but I’m already irritated by the lack of airtime for Daniel Jeremiah. I don’t always agree with his opinions but he’s solid and well connected.

I used to like mayock the first few years of the NFL network but now I just tolerate him and his surly demeanor. I’d ditch Eisen completely and let Jeremiah host it thus tripling his airtime.

Steve Smiths tough guy persona annoys me but at least he offers an opinion. The rest of the retired players just there to add credibility for the casual fan I guess.

I agree with posting all vital testing information. Again I’m trying to catch up and can’t easily find it on my phone. I know Walterfootball used to post numbers now I can barely get crappy site to open on my admittedly antiquated cell phone

Final complaint how hard would it to show some game tape of these kids? Youre the NFL. Surely they can have access to some college tape.

I do enjoy watching the drills and any football talk this time of year is appreciated but they could do soooo much better.

Sounds like the draft coverage frustrations too

I'd have to agree with Drama and others, More Daniel Jeremiah and Charles Davis, less angry Mayock and Eisen.

I was really surprised at Sam Hubbard's 3-cone drill 6.84 at 270.

Yup, compared to a top 10 draftee Davenport that tested at 7.20 at 264.... or a Chubb that tested at 7.37 at 269...

Haha awesome. I'm thinking my students might notice the distraction. Plus, I'd probably end up discussing how Fleance's three-cone agility and KEI composite allowed him to elude Macbeth's assassins in Act III, scene 3, despite his small frame and wrist circumference.

That made me laugh.... :lol:

Donte Jackson 4.32
Denzel Ward 4.32
Parry Nickerson 4.32
Tony Brown 4.37
Jaire Alexander 4.38

Other big names:

Josh Jackson 4.49
Mike Hughes 4.53
Isaiah Oliver 4.51

All unofficial at this point.

Damn, Denzel. Jackson tested out about where I thought he would, but I figured Ward for 4.40 or so. With the buildup yesterday on Hughes' speed, that 4.5 seems pretty disappointing. That could be the fault of the buildup more than the player, though.
