This is the kind of parent you see attending their kid's little league games and you want to knock him out for being such a jackass. Seems like dad cares more about his son's signing bonus than his son.

Anyway...

Screw 40 times, screw 3 cone drills and screw vertical leaps. Football isn't played in a straight line with no pads. I remember watching VT games and being impressed with him IN GAMES. Maybe he is one of those guys who doesn't lose much off his normal speed when in pads during the pressure of a game.

THIS IS GREAT NEWS! I have the 3rd pick in the rookie draft and now it looks like I may get him. Sweet.

Kevin Jones is the best back in the draft and if he gets picked later because of a couple 40 times it just means that some team is going to get a steal. NE is probably jumping up and down for joy right now.

You could get Jones with a much lower pick than 3.

Strangely enough, New England was the first team I thought of too.

Doubtful until today's news. The 2 teams ahead of me in the draft need/want RBs.

I dunno about that, usually the teams at the front of the rookie draft need a RB, because usually the teams picking first are the ones that finished last, which usually don't have good RB's...

I guess I was thinking about the KKL rookie draft. For that order, we just flip-flopped the first round draft order since we haven't played a season yet.

Yea, I was thinking the same thing - he's one of the few remaining backs with as much speed as he has...Clarrett maybe...but of course you take Jackson over Clarrett

Kevin Jones' stock is falling......

.....right into NE's lap at #21 :-)

Seriously though, I think if the Pats had a chance to get Jackson over Jones I would do it, in fact I think it's possible that Jackson could fall to #21. Either way it looks like NE will get the RB they need and not have to move up.

I couldn't agree more... Take a look at this article from last year, fellas, and then tell me how important combine and pro-day stats are:
