    He's definitely someone to consider.

    Also, if is to come to Dallas he would be a 34 OLB, which means he'd likely be required to drop 8-12 lbs. In fact, he'll likely be doing that anyways in preparation for the combine. That should only help his speed/quickness.

    I like to read http://www.drafttek.com/default.asp, just to get an idea of who some of the players are. I think they're about as accurate, in the end, as anything else. They don't have Ingram going until the 3rd. They project Dallas picking 18th at this point. Their first 3 round projection for us is:

    Rd 1 Alfonso Denard - CB, Nebraska
    Rd 2 Markelle Martin - S, OK State
    Rd 3 Kheeston Randall - 3-4 DE, Texas

    Never heard of Randall, but then again I live in Seattle.

    I'll let you a player I'm intrigued with.. Whitney Mercilus from Univ. of Illinois, he's projected to be an OLBer in the NFL. Leads the Div. 1 and the Big 10 in sacks with 14.

    He actually reminds me a lot of Greg Ellis. Very long and lanky and pretty athletic.

    That would be a solid start to the draft...

    All I can say is WOW.

    If that is not enough to disqualify 40 yard dash times from consideration (at least for certain positions), I don't know what could do the trick.

    Here are the best Shuttle times I could find for some current NFL pass-rushers:

    Alex Albright 6-5, 254, Shuttle: 4.03
    Von Miller 6-3, 246, Shuttle: 4.06
    DeMarcus Ware 6-4, 251, Shuttle: 4.07

    10-yard splits are a good indicator of a pass rushers burst too.

    yes you can look at that for pass rush burst but the shuttle gives you an idea of overall play. How they flips their hips in coverage, run support, and agility.

    Also why are we not playing Albright is those numbers are so good

    I had previously noted Albright's freaky quickness/agility/change of direction skills from the Combine. I secretly hope he might be Spencer's replacement next year. He has the frame to play OLB and he's got great quickness. I wonder what he'll be like after a year with Woicik.

    Watching him now vs. Nebraska. Not really making much of an impact yet
