From the Observer (link)

The Winners:

- CB David Amerson, NC State (showed good athleticism)
- DT Sharif Floyd, Florida (most athletic DT)
- OL Jonathan Cooper, UNC (good stats and interviews)
- CB Dee Milliner, Alabama (solidified status as a top ten pick)
- CB Tyrann Mathieu, LSU (showed good physical skills)


The Losers:

- LB Manti Te'o, Notre Dame (lousy 40 and an image - courtesy of John Harbaugh - that'll stick in memory)
- OG Chance Warmack, Alabama (bad 40, skipped bench press, scouts said he looked "soft")
- QB Mike Glennon, NC State (inconsistent/nothing special in throwing drills)
- CB Johnthan Banks, Mississippi State (average 40 time and looked bad in drills)
- DE Damontre Moore, Texas A&M (slow 40, only 11 reps on the bench)


Mind you, this is not written by a scout, but the notes included are fairly valid. I'm guessing Person discussed this with someone in the know and/or picked up on the scouts' chatter. Take it for what it's worth.

That was such a pedestrian performance by the top rated linebacker....and I'm not even a big Combine fan.

Te'o blamed it on pressure.

Not necessarily a good option given that "pressure" in the NFL is an everyday thing.

Certainly wouldn't mind seeing Warmack fall, but I'm not betting on it.

T'eo better run like the wind at his pro day, or he's dropping like a rock come April.

Mattheiu only benched 225 4 times... Pretty weak, but I'm still a fan.

Mathieu strikes me as Patrick Peterson 2.0, i.e. better as a return man than a cover guy.

One "winner" was the little running back from Auburn, Onterio McCalleb, who they thought for a short time had broken Chris Johnson's record. He still ran a 4.34, fastest RB in the combine.

Somebody will take a shot on that speed around the 4th-6th round and stick him in to return kicks and play 3rd down back.

Person's take in full...

Milliner did nothing to hurt his standing as the top corner in the draft. Milliner blazed through the 40 in 4.37 seconds and dazzled in defensive back drills. If the Panthers want him, they'll have to trade up from 14. Way up.


Granted, dropping passes doesn't hurt a corner as much as it would a receiver. Still, if he showed poor hands, that may indeed turn some teams off.

Poor hands would fit right in with our secondary.

Could this combine flop make Warmack slide to 14? I'd be happy with that.

Damn man Teo must be writing a book on how to obliterate your draft stock, for dummies.

What round is Mathieu projected in?

I like things that are a little less obvious. Guys who actually helped themselves should include Hunter, Marquess Wilson, Honey Badger, Slay, Armstead, Lane Johnson, Shmarko Thomas, Earl Wolff, and Josh Boyd's 1.67 split that beat Floyd and the fat linebacker(Richardson)
