    Where will Rashard Mendenhall go in the draft?

    40 Yard Dash 4.45
    20 Yard Shuttle 4.18
    Bench Press 26
    Vertical jump 33.5

    I did not see him play this year. He seems to have a thicker lower body than RDMC. From anyone who has watched him, I would like your thoughts.
    Thanks

    He's good and he'll go in the top 20 IMO.

    So he is not just a "workout wonder" type guy? Who is better? RDMC or Mendenhall? Why?

    I would never trade up for him...RB's drop in the draft...almost always.

    All 3 of the top RB's won't be gone before #22, imo.

    However, I still think we'll be looking at CB's and WR's.

    I think he should go to the Bears, but maybe they are gun shy on rb's after firing blanks on Cedric Benson. Ultimately though I think it will be the Texans at #18 and Houston will be a better team for it.

    I think Mendenhall is the better, all round, back prospect. DMac is probably the better "wow" factor RB, but I think Mendenhall is the better back.

    I like his shuttle time, means he has good agility, I was leery of him because Drew Boylhart said that he was a straight-line guy

    now I'm starting to think about him in the 1st, this class is loaded w/ RBs

    Looks like he will go off the board at #22 to the Dallas Cowboys. :D

    Hey BDC, Hope all is well. I really like this guy. By the way, not to go off on a tangent, but why the hate for Talib. I watched him almost every game and the kid seems to be a player. I know he gave up a couple of highlight catches, but everyone does. he seems to play with good technique.

    IF Mendenhall is there at 22 Jerry Jones better make him the pick, he's a beast...

    He's on very shaky ground from what I've heard. They definitely need to address the RB position with the Caddy's questionable return.

    maybe not - who was the dude who came out of nowhere to make bennett stay seated? my guess is they'd give him another chance.

    i see tampa in qb need if some is there.

    Ernest Graham? He has 215 yards rushing in 3 years prior to 2007. Not sure he's an outstanding gamble as the load carrier. They don't have to draft a RB round 1, but round two would behoove them IMO.
