Williams never ran close to a 4.5. More like 4.65, 4.67.

Phillip Rivers. I've heard him going as high as 11 to Pitt before today. I also heard about a trade between the Giants and SD sending Manning to NY. NY would draft Rivers and send Toomer with him to SD. Rumors are Rumors but how can this guy be a possible top 15??

Actually, he ran his forty in 4.56 with the wind and 4.62 against (not that it makes that much difference)

I gotta agree with this. I saw him play very well in some games, but he also looked completely lost in other games. Needless to say, the big show will make his ACC experience feel like jr. high. If this guy goes top 20 someone has made a mistake, IMO.

So, an average of 4.59. I was closer than you were. I was closer than you were. ;-) Seriously, I've seen some other times posted for him that weren't that good. I think that must've been one of his better runs.

Any of the top 3 RBs being considered. There is so much excitement for them here at the cafe, but none of them are being projected for the top half of the draft. No Ricky Williams or LaDainian Tomlinson in this draft.

Kevin Jones... He is an OK back, but I don't put him anywhere near a top 20 pick... He's just too damn slow...

Michael Clayton. Every mock I see has him projected 1st round, and comparing him against Michael Jenkins, I'm baffled as to why. Jenkins just looks to be the superior athlete, by far.

Not to mention that was on an extremely fast rubber track which is similar to the tracks at the olympics...

Maybe his 72% accuracy last year and his super impressive workouts have something to do with it. I agree he may be hype, but ive been hearing real good things from all of his workouts. I hope he is a good pro, i wanna see his throwing motion more and try to figure out how in hell that works.
