    Would love to have Ford.

    4.28 and he nailed it on the route drills and had a decent career at Clemson...so a good all around resume.

    Speaking of white... Gerhart doesn't seem to have many fans but I'm one. I thought he was probably just another good college back who had no chance in the pros until I saw him play. He looked like a better athlete than I expected.

    Not that he'd be a star, but I think he could be a good power back for a few carries a game and I bet he'd be good on special teams.

    Exactly I'd rather take someone who runs a 4.57, but is fast on film than a 4.4 guy that isn't explosive on film. That's just me though. I've seen McCluster in person (unfortunately he destroyed my OK State Cowboys) and he plays like a 4.4 player during the game.

    I also remember Hester being a 4.5 player at the Combine (going ny memory anyway).

    more like a 4.3, watch his highlight tape against Tennessee, or even that 81 yard run against ok state.

    4.45 in the 2006 NFL combine, but I think he was/is a burner in real ife.

    Yeah. I didn't really know anything about him until the Cotton Bowl. It was my first game at our new stadium and McCluster ran all over us for over 200 yards. Snead did everything he could to lose the game, but McCluster pretty much single-handedly won that game for the Rebels. That and Zac Robinson was terrible (either that or Ole Miss's defense came to play).

    I guess I remember wrong then. I thought I remembered everyone being shocked at his horrible 40 time.

    4.5 and 4.45 are not hugely different, but one sure sounds better. Anyway, we all know the guy a serious afterburners.

    Actually it's huge. Over 40 yards it's the WR getting 3 yards separation on a CB.

    Pleeeeze!

    Get outta here with that BS!

    I hate the gauntlet (and so do coaches) and Cover 2 likes it...end of story.

    I don't understand why folks don't get this. I'd much rather draft a kid like Brandon Banks for PR/KR. We don't need a progress stopper for Ogletree.

    No kidding.

    I think there was a post around Page 5 where someone specifically stated they didn't want to see a white receiver drafted.

    To carry that friendly, prosperous thought over to another position, is it time we stop drafting black OL? Like slow, un-athleic, golly-gee-whilickers white receivers, black OL all seem lazy and dumb. [/sarcasm]

    This crap has got to stop. The racial stereotyping of blacks is a hideous, ridiculous and sad thing. It's no different with other races.

    I would still love to have Shipley, He makes the big plays when his team needs them the most. The guy has been clutch in big situations

    The thing about Gerhart is he just seems like he is so tight and muscled up that he will be a perenial injury waiting to happen.

    Also i've seen him wear a brace when they play. Has he had knee problems?



    I just have a feeling Gerhart will be the type of player that if you need 1 yard he will get you 3 and if you need 5 yards he will get you 3.

    Shipleys going to be a heck of a complimentary player if he goes to the right team. Dallas being one of those teams.

    When did I say I liked the gauntlet? Someone asked what it was for and I answered. I even said game film was the best way to check out someone's hands. I do think the gauntlet shows whether someone is a hands catcher or body catcher though.

    I could have swore he ran in the 4.5's at the Combine then in the 4.3's at his Pro Day.
