    VY the greatest college football player ever (that you've seen)? Please tell me your reason for this is that you never saw Tommie Frazier dominate, leading his teams to back to back National Championships in the mid 90's. Best college football player ever. (IMO) Tommie Frazier. VY was nice though.

    Dont mean to be a dik but Ant is one of the worst talent evaluators here and has horrible ideas ( like saying Wayne Hunter is his #1 prospect on his FA radar) and his "sources" seem to be in his own head.

    Nice guy and hope he does well in law school because he has no future in sports :no:
    Cant have a career in sports when yur favorite leadoff line is : "I must admit" which usually follows with him admiting he was wrong...but at least he is man enough to admit it.

    I gotta give you props, MTL. I made fun of your Raptors many times, but they have proven me wrong. And I also apologize to my beloved Chippie for not supporting her Raptors bets. :eek:

    I didn't even realize that there were sides.

    We have a deal. I would only suggest you think about that whole do unto others thing. You would have been angry if someone wrote that post about you.

    That's all I'm saying

    There a lot of players I wish the Chargers could draft. However because we are so late I have to contain myself watching the Combine. I can only hope one of the great players gets evaluated inncorrectly so AJ and the Chargers can pick him up.

    Then again since so many players now pratice and prepare for the combine I believe that the Combine might not be as accurate as it was before in being an equal judge of talent. Those players that can perform better however were unable to get the high quality trainers will not do as well in the combine compared to those who praticed a lot and had the top trainers.

    Suffice to say there should be some questions raised, although I have not seen anyone really ask that, on whether these players who try and train so hard during the combine can equate that to the real NFL. What I forsee is that some players will get overpayed while others overlooked.

    Never fear people. AJ has a plan. It's a good plan. It's a plan that we will all be happy with once he executes it. It's also a plan that is better than any of us would be able to build and execute.

    Are we sure these are the actual "official" electronic times? NFL network or whoever usually flashes up a hand clocked time to begin with and later reports the actual electronic time. I remember a couple of years ago Ronnie Brown had everyone swinging from his nuts when he ran a 4.32 or something.....then later the actual time was more like 4.42 and it turned out JJ Arrington was actually faster than him by quite a bit when his initial time looked slow.

    I'm always a skeptic of 40 time BS anyway...but the only time I will pay attention is the somewhat legit electronic time. 4.32 for Jason Hill sounds like BS to me....but impressive if it's truly the electronic time at the combine.

    Official times have not come out but They arent usually that far off. Ronnie Brown ran a 4.38 then it was 4.42. And they arent always higher either.

    Hill looked fast running that 40 so even if he comes out officially at 4.39 or 4.4.....so what? I was expecting 4.5 to 4.55 and imo he helped himself the most today. I dont think anybody expected Hill to run near that fast.

    As expected. The non-official times are really no more accurate than a pro-day time. They can actually be off by more than a little bit. I'd expect his run to be in the 4.4's electronically....still not bad.

    Yes but at prodays..they do things like run with the wind and such. Maybe thats why they do this indoors at the combine.

    Very possible. He is a tweener and has good hands and speed so he could easily be a HB.

    He ran the same time as Marshawn Lynch

    If I remember correctly it was in the 4.6 - 4.7 range. Nothing special.
