I think the earliest team in the draft that would be a fit for CJ2 would be Tampa Bay, and that's where I'll probably pen him in if I get bored and do a mock draft.


The problem is no one can block for the QB so he has no time to throw a pass.

Is there any chance Matt Millen isn't going to pass on this guy? One reason I'm going to watch the draft is simply for the comedic possibilty of seeing him draft another first round WR. I'm sorry Lions fans, but that would be absolutely hilarious.

The Lions have two very good receivers in Roy Williams and Mike Furrey. If they didn't have a solid number two, I wouldn't put it past Millen to take CJ, but with Furrey as a very good number two, they probably won't take him.

Just found out Troy Williamson (who is known exclusively for his speed) ran a 4.38 in the combine in 2005.

That should at least give you some idea of how good Calvin's 4.33 time is.

I know these are old, but they are the first I found.

Wisconsin's Michael Bennett (4.31), Stephen F. Austin's Derrick Blaylock (4.33) and Ohio State's Derek Combs (4.37) all came in with 40 times of under 4.40.

The following running backs also impressed with their straight-line 40 speed:
Dan Alexander, Nebraska -- 4.41
Correll Buckhalter, Nebraska -- 4.50
Travis Minor, Florida State -- 4.44
Anthony Thomas, Michigan -- 4.54
LaDainian Tomlinson, TCU -- 4.42
Reggie White, Oklahoma St. -- 4.53
