  1. Malcolm Jenkins, Ohio State
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 204.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.40.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.55.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.53.
    Benchx225: 15. Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2009): Top 14-25 Pick.

    2/25/09: One of a few cornerbacks criticized by Deion Sanders. Malcolm Jenkins' poor 40 only strengthens the speculation that he'll have to play free safety.

    1/13/09: Thanks to outstanding play, three picks and 4.5 TFL, Malcolm Jenkins made the AP All-America First Team, and currently is the favorite to be the first corner taken off the board.

    12/13/08: I'll be shocked if Malcolm Jenkins doesn't get drafted in the top 10, barring a poor combine. Jenkins has 54 tackles, 3.5 TFL and two blocked kicks.

  2. Darius Butler, Connecticut
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 183.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.36.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.53.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.38.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: 43.
    Projected Round (2009): 1.

    2/25/09: Though everyone ran slowly at the 2009 NFL Combine once again, Darius Butler's 40 was especially disappointing. Some speculated that he would be in the high 4.2-low 4.3 range. At least his 43-inch vertical and broad jumps (11-2) were impressive.

    12/13/08: Though he missed all of November with a knee injury, Darius Butler still made the All-Big East First Team. Butler had 37 tackles and four passes broken up.

    7/22/08: Darius Butler will make some noise with an excellent 40 at the combine. But he's more than just an athlete; Butler had four interceptions as a sophomore. Oh, and he's a solid kick-returner to boot.

  3. Vontae Davis, Illinois
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 201.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.39.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.49.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.40.
    Benchx225: 25. Vertical: 37.5.
    Projected Round (2009): 1-2.

    3/22/09: Vontae Davis improved upon his mediocre Combine 40, running a 4.40 at his Pro Day. Davis is a candidate to go No. 8 to the Jaguars.

    2/25/09: The only "top" corner to run faster than 4.5. Still, a 4.49 was a disappointment.

    1/13/09: An AP All-America Third Team and a projected top-20 prospect, Vontae Davis declared a year early. With an outstanding combine, he could leap Malcolm Jenkins in these rankings.

    12/13/08: Though Vonte Davis was benched this season, he still qualified for the All-Big Ten First Team. Davis finished the year with 78 tackles, seven TFL and eight passes broken up.

    5/17/08: There's a chance Vontae Davis could surpass Malcolm Jenkins. In his two seasons at Illinois, Davis has registered 128 tackles, five picks and 14 passes broken up.

    2007: One of the top players at his position in the 2010 class, Vonate Davis has incredible size for a big corner. He made an immediate contribution as a true freshman. Through four games in 2007, Davis has two blocked punts.

  4. Alphonso Smith, Wake Forest
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 193.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.41.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.56.
    Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: 32.
    Projected Round (2009): 1-2.

    1/13/09: Alphonso Smith qualified for the AP All-America First Team. That's not surprising, as he tied the ACC career record for interceptions (Dre Bly, 20).

    12/13/08: Thanks to a whopping 13 passes broken up, six picks and a blocked kick, Alphonso Smith qualified for the All-ACC First Team.

    5/17/08: All Alphonso Smith did in 2007 was lead the country in picks with eight.

    2007: Alphonso Smith started three games as a sophomore, registering four sacks and three picks.

  5. D.J. Moore, Vanderbilt
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 184.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.41.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.58.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.57.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: 39.5.
    Projected Round (2009): 2.

    2/25/09: That 4.58 needed to be better. D.J. Moore is only 5-9, 192, after all. At least he had a 39.5-inch vertical.

    1/13/09: D.J. Moore, likely the third corner off the board, was an AP All-America second-teamer. Though he didn't take any returns back to the house, he maintained an impressive punt return average of 14.

    12/13/08: Thanks to his five picks, 4.5 TFL and six passes broken up, D.J. Moore has qualified for the All-SEC First Team.

    5/17/08: A member of the All-SEC team as a mere sophomore, D.J. Moore had six picks in 2007. He's also a dynamic kick returner.

  6. Kevin Barnes, Maryland
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 187.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.43.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.52.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.45.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: 41.
    Projected Round (2009): 2-3.

    1/13/09: Now two months removed from shoulder surgery. Pretty bad timing for an injury.

    12/13/08: Kevin Barnes missed the second half of the season with a shoulder injury. Barnes finished with two picks, five passes broken up and a blocked kick.

    5/17/08: Kevin Barnes had four picks in 2007. One of the tallest corners (6-1) in this class.

  7. Victor Harris, Virginia Tech
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 197.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.61.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.46.
    Benchx225: 13. Vertical: 34.
    Projected Round (2009): 2-3.

    3/22/09: Victor Harris did exactly what he needed to do. Improving upon his awful Combine 40, Harris ran a 4.46 at his Pro Day.

    1/13/09: It's a shame Macho Harris' 40 is going to hurt his draft stock a bit. He's very talented, as indicated by his AP All-America Second Team standing.

    12/13/08: Macho Harris returned two interceptions for touchdowns this year. He had six picks total, along with seven passes broken up. An All-ACC First Teamer.

    5/17/08: A play-maker who has seen time at receiver and kick returner. Like Brandon Flowers, Victory Harris would operate best in the cover-2.

    2007: Macho Harris, who had five interceptions as a junior, has decided to stay for his senior season after declaring for the draft.

    Harris, who doubles as a kick returner, started all 13 games as a sophomore.



  8. Keenan Lewis, Oregon State
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 208.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.46.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.54.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.49.
    Benchx225: 20. Vertical: 38.5.
    Projected Round (2009): 2-3.

    12/13/08: Keenan Lewis registered three picks (one for a touchdown) and six passes broken up. Just an All-Pac 10 honorable mention.

    5/17/08: Keenan Lewis has started 34 of 37 games at Oregon State going into his senior year. He picked off three passes in 2007.

  9. Jairus Byrd, Oregon
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 207.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.53.
    Combine 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2009): 3.

    2/23/09: Jairus Byrd measured two inches shorter than Oregon listed him.

    12/13/08: As a junior, Jairus Byrd registered 74 tackles, four picks and an amazing 14 passes broken up. Made the All-Pac 10 First Team.

    8/5/08: Another outstanding Oregon corner, Jairus Byrd, who has started 24-of-26 possible games as a Duck, recorded seven interceptions and 15 pass break-ups in 2007. He's definitely made for the cover-2.

  10. Mike Mickens, Cincinnati
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 186.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
    Combine 40 Time: DNP.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.57.
    Benchx225: DNP. Vertical: 35.5.
    Projected Round (2009): 3-4.

    12/13/08: An All-America third-teamer, Mike Mickens had 66 tackles, nine passes broken up, four interceptions and a pick-six.

    7/22/08: Mike Mickens has done a good job putting on some much-needed weight, gaining about 15 pounds in less than a year.

    5/17/08: Mickens had six picks and six pass breakups in 2007. A solid kick-returner, Mickens took two interceptions back to the house in his career. I still have concerns about his lacking size.

    2007: Named to the All-Big East second team twice in his collegiate career. Mike Mickens has recorded three picks in the first three weeks of the 2007 season. He desperately needs to put on some muscle.

  11. Captain Munnerlyn, South Carolina
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 186.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.35.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.53.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.41.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: 36.5.
    Projected Round (2009): 3-4.

    12/13/08: Captain Munnerlyn's stock has slipped, as his play has regressed amid speculation that he's not trying hard. I'm not sure if that's true or not, but it's pretty much a lock that Munnerlyn will declare early. He has 40 tackles, two TFL, two sacks and five passes broken up.

    A great combine could boost Munnerlyn's stock again.

    5/17/08: A member of the All-SEC First Team, Captain Munnerlyn recorded 47 tackles and three interceptions as a mere sophomore. He has an excellent 40, and like Trevard Lindley, he could move himself into first-round consideration with another solid season.

  12. Asher Allen, Georgia
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 194.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.53.
    Benchx225: 22. Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2009): 3-4.

    12/13/08: Asher Allen had 44 tackles, 3.5 TFL, and seven passes broken up as a junior.

    8/5/08: In addition to being a decent return specialist, Asher Allen, who started 11 games, notched 64 tackles and three interceptions as a true sophomore.

  13. Donald Washington, Ohio State
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 197.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.46.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.55.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.52.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: 45.
    Projected Round (2009): 4-5.

    2/25/09: Donald Washington's 40 time is a bit surprising, based on his 45-inch vertical and 11-3 broad jump. Then again, no one ran well.

    1/16/09: Declaring into a top-heavy class when you're a Day 2 prospect off a mediocre year isn't too smart. Donald Washington had just 22 tackles and a pick in 2008.

    5/17/08: Primarily a nickel in 2007, Donald Washington was suspended for the national championship for violating team rules.

    2007: Started nine games as a red-shirt freshman.

  14. Mark Parson, Ohio
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 186.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.38.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.57.
    Benchx225: 12. Vertical: 38.
    Projected Round (2009): 4-5.

    12/13/08: Mark Parson's numbers weren't as impressive this year (two picks, five passes broken up) because opposing quarterbacks simply weren't throwing his way. Parson proved he could play with the "big boys" against Ohio State.

    5/17/08: A seldom-beat man-to-man corner, Mark Parson is among the junior career leaders in pass breakups with 26 (only behind Mike Mickens and Alphonso Smith). He's a great leader and his ability to put up 18 reps of 225 pounds will catch someone's attention.

    Go here for Mark Parson's highlight film.

    2007: Mark Parson, who started the final 10 games of his sophomore campaign, will certainly turn some heads with his 40 time.

  15. Morgan Trent, Michigan
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 193.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.47.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.53.
    Benchx225: 23. Vertical: 38.
    Projected Round (2009): 4-5.

    12/13/08: One of the bright spots in a miserable Michigan season, Morgan Trent totaled 41 tackles, three picks and 2.5 TFL.

    5/17/08: Morgan Trent improved in 2007 after struggling the year before. He had 106 tckles, 18 pass breakups and four interceptions.

    2007: I hope Morgan Trent has fire insurance because he's been burnt way too many times this season.

  16. Bradley Fletcher, Iowa
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 196.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.46.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.54.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.44.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: 40.
    Projected Round (2009): 5-6.



  17. Jason McCourty, Rutgers
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 193.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.30.
    Benchx225: 15. Vertical: 36.5.
    Projected Round (2009): 5-6.

    3/29/09: Jason McCourty just ran a 4.30 at Rutgers' Pro Day. He also had a 36.5-inch vertical.

    12/13/08: Jason McCourty had an excellent senior campaign for Rutgers. He had 59 tackles and six passes broken up.

  18. Lardarius Webb, Nicholls State
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 179.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.53.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.46.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2009): 5-6.

    1/13/09: An All-Southland First Team member, Lardarius Webb registered 55 tackles and two picks as a senior.

    5/17/08: A transfer from Southern Miss, Lardarius Webb qualified for the All-Southland first team as a corner and the second team as a kick returner. Projected as a cover-2 corner.

  19. Domonique Johnson, CB, Jackson State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 188.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.34.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.55.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.52.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2009): 5-6.

    2/25/09: Yet another poor 40. Something tells me Domonique Johnson will run close to a 4.3 at his Pro Day.

    1/13/09: Was an AP Division 1-AA All-America First Team selection. If it weren't for Al Davis, Domonique Johnson would probably be a fourth-round prospect. Johnson will be at the Senior Bowl.

    12/13/08: Attention, Al Davis! This man runs a low 4.3! Draft him now!

    5/17/08: Let's see... very tall (6-2), very fast (4.34 40) and very annoying to opposing quarterbacks (five picks). Domonique Johnson transferred from Missouri to Jackson State for undisclosed reasons, so that's keeping me from putting him any higher on this list.

  20. Joe Burnett, Central Florida
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 192.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.51.
    Benchx225: 22. Vertical: .
    Projected Round: 5-6.

    2/23/09: Joe Burnett measured two inches shorter than Central Florida listed him. That won't matter on kick returns.

    12/13/08: An All-Conference USA first teamer and a member of an All-America Second Team, Joe Burnett enjoyed a great senior season. Burnett had 44 tackles, 11 passes broken up and 4.5 TFL. He also was superb on special teams, blocking a kick and taking a pair of kickoffs back for touchdowns.

    5/17/08: Joe Burnett had six interceptions in 2007, giving him a total of 12 for his career.

    2007: Joe Burnett has decided to stay for his senior year after declaring for the 2008 NFL Draft.

    Burnett played a lot as a freshman, but was hampered by an ankle injury as a sophomore. Now in his junior year, Joe Burnett is making all the plays; he had a great game in a near upset against Texas.



  21. Coye Francies, San Jose State
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 181.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.42.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.59.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.63.
    Benchx225: 24. Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2009): 5-6.

    3/27/09: A 4.63 is not good for Coye Francies' draft stock. Combined with his off-the-field issues, there are just too many red flags here.

    2/25/09: Combined with his off-the-field history, a 4.59 40 doesn't bode well for Coye Francies' draft stock.

    12/13/08: An All-WAC second-teamer who has a troubled past. Francies had 69 tackles, three picks, 3.5 TFL and three passes broken up. He could sneak into the third round.

    5/17/08: A transfer from Oregon State, Coye Francies was arrested last year for possessing illegal weapons. He and Tank Johnson should become close friends.

  22. Brandon Hughes, Oregon State
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 182.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.43.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.50.
    Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: 37.
    Projected Round (2009): 5-6.

    2/25/09: Had a 4.50 40, which amazingly was one of the fastest "official" 40 times at the 2009 NFL Combine. Also had a 10-8 broad jump.

    12/13/08: A member of the All-Pac 10 Second Team, Brandon Hughes totaled 34 tackles and a whopping 11 passes broken up in an outstanding senior season.

  23. Greg Toler, St. Pauls
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 191.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
    Projected Round (2009): 6.



  24. Brice McCain, Utah
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 189.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.36.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.33.
    Benchx225: 12. Vertical: 36.5.
    Projected Round (2009): 6-7.

    1/13/09: Brice McCain finished with 35 tackles, two TFL, one sack and five passes broken up for national champion Utah. His 40 will get him drafted.

    12/13/08: Brice McCain was elected to the All-Mountain West First Team. It's not the presidency, but at least one McCain was happy this fall.

    5/17/08: Brice McCain's 40 will get him drafted. As for actual stats, McCain had 24 tackles and 11 pass breakups.

    2007: Easily one of the fastest players in this draft class, Brice McCain doubles as a solid kick returner. Started 12 games as a sophomore.

  25. Glover Quin, New Mexico
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 204.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.54.
    Benchx225: 22. Vertical: 38.
    Projected Round (2009): 6-7.

    1/13/09: Looking at the numbers, it's easy to see why Glover Quin was named to the All-Mountain West First Team. Quin registered 53 tackles, 4.5 TFL, five interceptions and an amazing 11 passes broken up.

  26. Christopher Owens, San Jose State
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 177.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.43.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.51.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.44.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: 35.
    Projected Round (2009): 6-FA.

    12/13/08: Easily made the All-WAC First Team with 68 tackles and eight passes broken up.

    2007: Christopher Owens is a bit small and could stand to gain some weight. However, he registered 75 tackles and six picks in 2007, so it's not like he wasn't productive.

  27. Jerraud Powers, Auburn
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 188.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.46.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.54.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.43.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: 35.
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    1/13/09: Jerraud Powers had 47 tackles, seven passes broken up and two picks in his junior year. He missed two games with a hamstring injury.

    1/7/09: Unless he completely dazzles at the Combine, Jerraud Powers won't get a whiff of Day 1. I have no idea why he declared early.

    8/5/08: Jerraud Powers started every game as a sophomore. He managed 63 tackles and picked off four passes.

  28. Bruce Johnson, Miami
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 170.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.38.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.53.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.42.
    Benchx225: DNP. Vertical: 38.5.
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    12/13/08: Another bright spot for a team with a bleak season, Bruce Johnson finished with 29 tackles and five passes broken up.

    5/17/08: Bruce Johnson's lacking size hurts him, but an excellent 40 and dynamic kick-returning abilities keeps him relatively high on this chart.

  29. DeAngelo Smith, Cincinnati
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 191.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.60.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.63.
    Benchx225: DNP. Vertical: 32.
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    12/13/08: One of the many reasons for Cincinnati's success this year was brilliant corner play. Everyone knows about Mike Mickens. Well, DeAngelo Smith made a name for himself by recording 49 tackles and nine passes broken up.

    5/17/08: Cincinnati's "other" corner qualified for the All-Big East second team, thanks to his five interceptions.

    2007: DeAngelo Smith has three interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, through four games in 2007.

  30. Ellis Lankster, West Virginia
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 191.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    12/13/08: Ellis Lankster tallied 63 tackles, seven passes broken up and three picks in his senior campaign.

  31. Jahi Word-Daniels, Georgia Tech
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 197.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
    Combine 40 Time: DNP.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.59.
    Benchx225: 24. Vertical: 38.
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    1/13/09: In just seven games, Jahi Word-Daniels collected 3.5 TFL, one pick and two passes broken up.

    12/13/08: Played in only seven games this year, thanks to a hamstring injury.

    5/17/08: Another cover-2 corner, Jahi Word-Daniels battled numerous nagging injuries in 2007. His senior season will be his second as a full-time starter.

  32. Lydell Sargeant, Penn State

    Benchx225: . Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    12/13/08: His draft stock depends on how GMs regard his troubled past. An All-Big Ten Second Teamer, Lydell Sargeant is talented; he had nine passes broken up and four picks as a senior.

    2007: One of the best-kept secrets in all of college football, Lydell Sargeant is among the most underrated corners in the nation. Unfortunately, he has arrests in his troubled past.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.46.

    12/13/08: An All-MAC Second Team player, Londen Fryar recorded 40 tackles and five passes broken up as a senior.

    5/17/08: Londen Fryar - sounds like something you can order in a fancy restaurant. A former receiver, Fryar has been an All-MAC selection the past two years.

    2007: A member of the All-MAC First Team in 2006, Londen Fryar picked off five passes, ranked first in the conference.

  36. Vince Butler, New Mexico State

    1/13/09: Armed with a great 40, Ryan Mouton qualified for the All-WAC First Team, thanks to six TFL, eight passes broken up, two fumbles forced and a pick-six. He also returned a kickoff for a touchdown.

    Height: 5-10. Weight: 197.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.39.
    Combine 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    12/13/08: An All-Pac 10 second-teamer, Wopamo Osaisai had 67 tackles, 3.5 TFL and eight passes broken up.

    5/17/08: Wopamo Osaisai is a track star who has a chance to shine at the combine. He had 45 tackles and eight pass breakups in 2007.

    2007: It's hard to pronounce Wopamo Osaisai's name, but I have a feeling casual NFL fans will have to once he enters the NFL. Osaisai, who has a chance to run a low 4.3, currently leads Stanford with pass breakups through four games. He was a starter as a sophomore.

  40. Jacob Lacey, Oklahoma State

    Projected 40 Time: 4.47.

    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    12/13/08: Tony Carter gained some weight, but he's still a little light in the pants. Two picks and four passes broken up earned him a spot on the All-ACC Second Team.

    5/17/08: Though he had 45 tackles and four picks, Carter's play in 2007 was described as mediocre by some.

    2007: Tony Carter started every game he played as a sophomore and picked off two passes in 2006. As a junior, Carter intercepted a pair of throws against Colorado.

  44. DeAndre Wright, New Mexico

    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.72.
    Benchx225: 15. Vertical: 36.5.
    Projected Round (2009): FA.

    5/17/08: Allen Langford was looking great in 2007 until he suffered a season-ending knee injury. Whats up with Wisconsin corners always getting hurt? At any rate, Langford will move up on this board if he shows he can bounce back.

    2007: Wisconsin's top cornerback - as a sophomore (Jack Ikegwuonu hurt).

  46. Don Carey, Norfolk State
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 192.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.47.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.54.

    Benchx225: . Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2009): FA.

    2/25/09: Not a good combine. In addition to running a slow 40, Cary Harris was heavily criticized by Deion Sanders during the drills. Said Sanders, "He's killing himself. He's slaughtering himself."

    1/13/09: After a great Kraft Rose Bowl, Cary Harris finished the year with 38 tackles, six passes broken up, four TFL and three picks. Harris was an All-Pac 10 honorable mention.

    5/17/08: Started 23 of 25 games the past two seasons for USC's stout defense. Despite a pedestrian 40, Cary Harris can return kicks.

  48. Jackie Bates, Hampton
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 180.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.36.
    Projected Round (2009): FA.

    2007: Jackie Bates has seemed to rebound following a troubled pass (sorry, Emmitt-type error). He completely dominated the MEAC this year. His 40 time is amazing.

    Transferred to Hampton. Let's see if he can get his act together there.

    If Bates weren't coming off a leg injury and wasn't suspended for conduct detrimental to the team, I'd have him much higher on this list.

  49. Dwain Crawford, Baylor

  51. Woodny Turenne, Louisville
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 183.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.43.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.49.

    12/13/08: Out for the year with a broken clavicle.

    Height: 6-2. Weight: 200. Projected 40 Time: 4.47. Projected Round (2009): FA.
