    4.07 short shuttle is pretty amazing for being 250

    I don't think any of the top RBs this year got near that

    As I recall, it was his 3-Cone that really caused mouths to drop

    I don't follow the combine as much as you do.

    But I suspect that the 3 cone drill is disgusting.

    What position does a 6.8 second 3 cone drill compare too? As in, is that what you'd expect from a WR (for example)?

    "Coming out of college where he played defensive end, Ware measured 6 feet 4 inches and weighed 251 pounds. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 seconds. His time in the three-cone agility drill (6.85 seconds) was two-hundredths of a second faster than any other linebacker in the 2005 draft."

    Anything sub 7 seconds in the 3-core is jaw dropping.

    Of course 10'7 broad jump is nothing to sneeze at either.

    4.56 at 250+lbs is pretty damn good too. Hell, the fastest I ever ran was 4.62 in high school and I was only 155lbs!

    It is certainly applicable to rushing the passer.

    Its a drill that shows how well you play in a deep knee bend.

    They have to get in and out of low stances quickly and that is a great indicator of football quickness.

    Ware is a monster for a reason.

    He is just more explosive then almost anyone and as quick as anyone perhaps ever to play that DE/OLB hybrid.

    IT was the combine that shot Ware way up the boards. Till then he was a middle 1st rd pick to late 1st rd rd pick. After the combine- where he really impressed people with his interviews as well- he became in many people's eyes the equal of the much more heralded Merriman.

    I think Barwin prefers TE correct? Not that it matters much. It appears he is the second coming of Vrabel.

    He said last night he thought his best position might be OLB in a 34, which is strange because it's the only one he hasn't played yet.

    But he said that would put together playing in space and playing on defense, both of which he prefers.
