    Is Rocket Ismael crazy? He jumped over Allen immediately after the bench press. It was really funny, but kind of dangerous.

    Did you see Allen say "I want a copy of that" ? The most I've ever heard him say.:)

    I read somewhere Larry Allen had the best 40 time for a OL ever. He ran a 4.75 or something similiar. That is just incredible.

    Tony Mandarich ran a 4.69 at the combine and 4.65 at this pro day.

    I <believe> up that point in 1989, Mandarich had the highest scouting grade ever assigned to ANY college player coming in the NFL.

    Of course, we know today that Mandarich was a roid monster.

    if ever there was a player that deserved to be a first ballot HOFer, it is this guy.......it would be grand larceny if the voters don't get him in.

    plus I also would like to hear his HOF speech....may be the shortest in NFL history...."THANK YOU VERY MUCH..." :D

    LA walks up

    His presenter (wonder if that might be Haley?) hands him the Bust.

    LA takes Bust.

    "Thank You."

    Walks away.

    Larry Allen looked like a refrigerator running at full speed on that pick 6th.

    What a monster! It would be nice to have 1/2 of Larry Allen on our current team.

    Anthony Munoz possibly right there with LA. I don't think Munoz ever allowed a sack....

    Also seems to me after LA did the 700 pounds, later in the year he had a shoulder injury, and never seemed the same since that. I often wondered if he did some damage, and considered that somewhat of a risk to take.

    Now LA at 90% was still better than everyone else.
