    When the defensive backs run the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, it’s an impressive display of straight-line speed. But how meaningful is it to determining whether these guys can play football?
    According to NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock, it’s actually quite meaningful — at least with this year’s class, where several of the top defensive backs have questions to answer about their speed.

    “We’ve got a big, physical corner class, but we’re not sure how fast they are right now,” Mayock says in a video at

    I hope Aaron Williams CB Texas is on the board at 40, because that would be a great value pick at 40 and provide depth and big upside development. He's raw, but his 40 may push him into round 1. If that does happen, the CB class is very deep. Curtis Marsh CB Texas and Ryan Hill CB Miami are lurking, among a long list of others. That is two players who may push themselves into round 2.

    Curtis Marsh
    Ryan Hill
    Brandon Burton
    Brandon Hogan
    Chimdi Chekwa
    Davon House
    Rashad Carmicheal
    Patrick Johny
    Ras-I Dowling
    Sharecce Wright
    Chykie Brown
    Jalil Brown
    Korey LIndsey
    Chris Rucker
