My main man blazed his 40-time today.

FITZGERALD RUNS 4.49; SPENCER DOES 4.38
Our moles in the 'Burgh tell us that Pitt receiver Larry Fitzgerald ran a faster-than-expected 4.49 in the 40-yard dash during his Pro Day workout on Monday.
The effort solidifies Fitzgerald's status, in our view, as the best receiver available in the draft -- if not the best player.
So ignore our mock draft version 3.0, which has Fitz falling to No. 11. Given his sub-4.5 time, he's back in the top five, and he likely won't last beyond the three hole.
Also raising eyebrows on Monday was Pitt corner Shawntee Spencer, who ran a blazing 4.38. Spencer has been in the first round of our mock draft from the outset, though he wasn't even invited to the scouting combine.
But with four years of covering Larry Fitzgerald and Antonio Bryant and a sub-4.4 forty, look for Spencer's name to start popping up in places where he previously has been ignored.
And when he gets lifted in round one, remember where you heard it first.
OK, not quite blazed it but an impressive effort all the same.
Fitzgeralds got everything size, hands, body control, instincts and even pretty good speed.
