    I don't think he's an Ozzie kind of player. I do think he's going to be a very good NFL player. Some team is going to get him in the 4th round and end up with a playmaking starter. I kind of hope it's the Cardinals because Mathieu and Patrick Peterson are a great combination.

    31 inch arms seem pretty long for that height though. Maybe I am wrong.

    It's clear though that he's been working out. Fast, agile, great center of gravity and passes the eye test too.

    I would hope if he's available in the 4th we jump all over him... but you may be right. I do think he will be a starter in the NFL for sure.

    He does have long arms. I have 30 inch arms @ 5'10".

    He clearly showed he is a much better athlete than so many people were making him out to be.

    I've been a fan for the last 2 years, but I recognize the off field issues. It wouldn't surprise me if he isn't even on our board at all...in fact, I'd expect us to have took him off....that's usually how Ozzie and John roll with not wanting knuckleheads. He seems contrite and sounds like he realizes how much he has thrown away...but it has been a short period of time. I liked how he said he would be proactive and hire someone to help chaperone him for a while.

    But I think if he stays off the weed, and goes to a team with a DC who uses him as a "roving" CB/S, I think he will be a very, very good player.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Eric Reid with a 4.53, good time for a guy about 213 at 6'1"

    Yeah, that's a good time.

    Great time for Xavier Rhodes.

    Apparently this Shamarko Thomas dude is going to be the gym rat/freak of the DB class.

    Put up 28 reps and everyone says he is going to have a really fast 40.

    Compares to Bob Sanders.

    I guess he isn't as highly thought of as a ball player though because he has a low round projection.

    Wow, 4.41 for Rhodes. That's going to put him in the mid 1st round. A 6'2" 210lb corner that can run AND has decent hips?

    He could be a top 15 pick with numbers like that.

    Swearing with a 4.62, not sure how much that will affect his position

    Eric Reid also a 1.50 split

    Yup.

    Banks dropped, Rhodes rose.

    Not a big fan of Swearinger's 40. 4.62. Still would take him late 2nd/3rd.

    Yea, I was hoping for at least a low 4.5.

    Maybe he didn't sleep well either? (/Te'o)

    Jamar Taylor with a 4.37.

    I like this kid. I think he could be a good pro. He's physical.
