    Let's see:

    • Lassiter: first or second round
    • Bullard: second or third
    • Smith: third or fourth

    .. and I used to envy all the dangerous DBs that LSU and FSU produced.

    Combine the last three drafts with the upcoming one, and we'll be DBU.

    Sorry @MikeGriffith im in a contrarian mood this morning. The headline leads me to believe the article will be about their combine exploits. But outside of Nagy briefly mentioning their 40 times, the article is primarily focused on how well they did at the senior bowl week.

    The 40 times were the key --- both sub 4.5 .... it built on what they did at Senior Bowl, which was also big, especially for Tykee who got to play the high safety spot after playing mostly star at UGA

    The NFL Draft evaluation process is made up of more than one thing .... but those 40 times were clutch

    Honest question. With game tape and GPS technology to determine “game speed”, do the franchises still use one event (combine) to see how fast a player is.

    it seems that they would be more interested in what happens on the field rather than a controlled environment when it comes to speed (not quickness)

    I know many of the other drills show comparisons to other players and there is also the eye test.
