Walt, did you here the Piitsburgh-Philly announces going on about how one viewer who wouldn't be turning off the game despite Pitts burgh being well behind, was Arnold Palmer. They also went on to say Palmer wasn't very well, and wished him all the best. Problem was that he died two hours previously!
Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
Despite bulking up, Eric Berry put on a show at the Combine. He ran a 4.40 at 211 pounds and notched a 43-inch vertical. He's a top-seven lock.
Chris Cook, CB, Virginia
Chris Cook had a great Combine, running a 4.43 at 6-2, 212. Al Davis will definitely be interested in Round 2.
Perrish Cox, CB, Oklahoma State
Perrish Cox struggled at the Combine with a 4.53 40. Cox is inconsistent on tape and could have used a strong performance in Indianapolis.
Brandon Ghee, CB, Wake Forest
Brandon Ghee measured in a bit taller than he was listed (6-0 instead of 5-11) and then ran a great 40 (4.37). There's a good chance he goes in Round 2.
Joe Haden, CB, Florida
A lot is being made of Joe Haden's horrific 40 time of 4.57. I personally don't think it's a big deal. The instant Haden got into his stance, Deion Sanders nearly had a seizure. Deion noted that the stance was terrible, and sure enough, Haden got off to a poor start both times. He'll likely improve his 40 at his Pro Day. Haden is still an option for the Browns at No. 7, but there's a greater chance he falls out of the top 10 now.
Kareem Jackson, CB, Alabama
Kareem Jackson really helped himself at the Combine with a 4.41 40. He's a solid second-round prospect.
A.J. Jefferson, CB, Fresno State
Mike Mayock repeatedly praised A.J. Jefferson during the Combine. Jefferson, who is 6-0 with long arms, ran a 4.43 and notched a 44-inch vertical. He's a project, but has a ton of upside.
Reshad Jones, S, Georgia
Reshad Jones ran well (4.54) and had a nice vertical (39.5) at the Combine. I also thought he looked very good in the drills.
Taylor Mays, SS, USC
Don't pay attention to that so-called "official" 40 time of 4.43. Taylor Mays ran a low 4.3 or high 4.2; in a simulcast against Trindon Holliday, Mays beat Holliday, who ran a 4.34. For the second year in a row, the official times at the Combine were screwed up. Regardless, Mays ran well and also notched a 41-inch vertical - but we all knew that would happen. His main concern remains his ability to cover. Still, as the NFL Network analysts opined, some coaches will think they can coach up Mays. The physical talent is definitely there.
Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers
Devin McCourty ran the fastest 40 of any corner at the Combine at 4.34. He also looked great in the drills. McCourty may sneak into the first round.
Jerome Murphy, CB, South Florida
Ran a slow 40 (4.52) at the Combine, and from what I'm hearing, he turned some people off during the interviews.
Myron Rolle, SS, Florida State
Myron Rolle has been out of football for a year, so he needed to test well. Unfortunately, Rolle recorded a 4.68 in his 40. He remains an early Day 3 pick.
Darrell Stuckey, S, Kansas
I thought Darrell Stuckey looked really great in the drills. He also ran an impressive 4.49 and leaped a 39.5-inch vertical.
Stephan Virgil, CB, Virginia Tech
How does a corner run a 4.73? Many of the defensive ends were faster than that.
Donovan Warren, CB, Michigan
I think Donovan Warren is a terrific player, but he really hurt himself by running a 4.59 at the Combine. He may slip on Draft Day, but whomever picks him will likely land a steal.
