    Kyle Wilson runs 40-yard dash in 4.42 seconds; 'I know I'm as fast as they come'

    Former Boise State cornerback Kyle Wilson ran the 40-yard dash in 4.42 seconds Friday at the Broncos' pro day.

    That's slightly slower than Wilson expected, but plenty fast enough to keep him in line for a first-round selection in the NFL Draft. He also posted a 38-inch vertical jump, a personal best.

    The scouts do their own timing, so there is some variety in the numbers. Wilson's two 40-yard-dash attempts were timed in as fast as 4.39 seconds and as slow as 4.47 seconds, according to different scouts and reports.

    Wilson ran the 40 in 4.36 and 4.39 seconds last spring.

    "I was happy how everything went," said Wilson, who is expected to land in the second half of the first round of the NFL Draft. "... I know I'm as fast as they come, so hey, I'll trust my speed vs. anybody."

    The top 40-yard dash by a cornerback at the NFL Scouting Combine was 4.45 seconds. Six players had vertical jumps better than 38 inches, topped by a 44-inch leap by Fresno State's A.J. Jefferson.

    Wilson said the hamstring injury that prevented him from running and jumping at the combine was not an issue Friday.

    "I don't have any excuses," he said. "I trained hard, I was ready to go and I came out here and did my best."

    Wilson's other results included 10 feet, 2 inches in the broad jump, 6.74 seconds in the three-cone drill, 4.02 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle and 11.4 seconds in the 60-yard shuttle. The best of those numbers is in the 20-yard shuttle, where Wilson would have ranked second at the combine. He would have tied for sixth in the three-cone drill.

    The usual collection of NFL scouts was augmented by at least a handful of NFL defensive coordinators. Forty-four scouts and coaches attended the event, representing 28 teams. Seven to 10 coaches were in attendance, including the Philadelphia Eagles' defensive coordinator.

    Wilson said he already has visits lined up to at least six NFL teams - Jacksonville (pick No. 10), Dallas (No. 27), Cleveland (Nos. 7 and 38), Pittsburgh (No. 18), Tennessee (No. 16) and St. Louis (Nos. 1 and 33).•••

    Fullback Richie Brockel (6-foot-1, 251 pounds), considered a likely free-agent signing, also worked out for the scouts. Brockel had been running for just two weeks after a four-month rehab on his injured foot. He had surgery to repair damaged ligaments.

    Brockel impressed scouts with his change of direction.

    "I had no pain today - it felt awesome," he said. "I was really happy about that because I thought I might have to battle through some stuff, but I didn't."


    Defensive end Mike T. Williams, whose career ended with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee late in the 2008 season, worked out, too.

    He spent more than a year getting ready for his chance. He said he was close to quitting football when the Broncos' Fiesta Bowl appearance in January "lit a fire in me."

    "It's been a long, hard wait," he said, "but it's well worth it. I came out here and performed like I wanted to perform."

    Have you looked at their secondary? Nobody can cover back there.

    I want this guy as our first pick. A lot of problems would be fixed (return game, CB depth, future replacement for TNew).

    But yeah, unfortunately he might be gone at 27.

    Bummer, this was closed to the public so I couldn't go watch.

    And we had mid-Winter like conditions on the local ski hill so that had all my attention, hehe.

    Nothing beats being able to ski primo powder and then drive a half-hour back to town and go golfing if you want.

    I made a thread about this guy while watching a Boise State game a long time ago last year. If we were able to get him at #27 it would give us CB depth to groom plus an immediate player as a KR/PR.

    Let's hope he's there. The CB from Rutgers could do it too.

    If not earlier, he goes to Pitt at 18 or Houston at 20.

    I can't see him getting past Houston, or philly. I would grab him at #27 unless Thomas is available.

    He can replace T New right now IMO.

    I doubt a rookie is going to come in and outperform T-New.

    If we draft him it is because we think he can play FS and then move to CB later when TNew moves on. This would be a solid move for us if he drops to us but I don't think he will.

    Even if he does outplayed Tnew he isn't going to play ahead of him. Do you guys not know how our coaches operate? But No, he won't outperform Tnew anyways.
