Scouting Combine

I think the combine is a good tool to measure work ethic. You can tell who prepared and who showed up unprepared.

i was the first one to mention goodwin but to fair he is a OLYMPIAN,,,,lol

so im not surprised he ran a 4.27.....i believe he could do better than that too.

heard a few comparisons to mike wallace.......dont know about that because dude has terrible ball tracking skills but if he can get that fixed...the sky is the limit for goodwin.

Mentioned Vernon in the Draft sub forum as a underrated/surprise guy. Wouldn't mind grabbing him at all.

Would all depend on whether or not he is good in between the tackles and doesn't rely on speed alone. IIRC he was strictly a shotgun outside runner at Auburn.

I really dislike the combine. This is when guys in shirts and shorts get rated over proven players with lots of potential.

I stand by my words when I say Robert Woods is nothing more than a slot receiver.

I'm going to say right now that we really want Vernon, he's a guy I can definitely seeing us drafting one way or another.

You could very well be right. The proven and consistent types can be shoved aside attention wise by the athletic/high-measurable types.

Was Woods on pace for a strong season prior to Barkley being injured? That's where I'm curious to see how he did.

I'm gonna again give a shout out to Wheaton. Really solid prospect imo.

He has absolutely zero between the tackles ability. But, he's a great returner and is very good in ST coverage. Great for speed sweeps and other outside runs. Very good pass catcher that could be used in screens and even placed in the slot.
