funny because i thought jon abbate did pretty well on his workout drills outside of his 40 time. plus he's a solid looking player. who know? the pats might pick him up late in the draft and max out his abilities....

A few minutes ago on ESPN they said his stock might have just dropped to the 2nd round b/c he ran in the 4.5s. Scouts aren't sure if he can cover the whole field with his speed

aiight the combine is over what does ur top ten picks look like

Oakland - JaMarcus Russell
Detroit - Joe Thomas or trade down
Cleveland - Adrian Peterson
Tampa Bay - Calvin Johnson
Arizona - Gaines Adams
Washington - Jamaal Anderson
Minnesota - Robert Meachem
Houston - Alan Branch
Miami - Brady Quinn
Atlanta - LaRon Landry

The Texans may try to trade with the lions and steal Peterson which is prolly a good idea cause he could be the cornerstone since they passed on Bush last year....

Dwayne Jarrett skipped the 40-yard dash at the combine today. Rumors are swirling that he was running the 40-yard dash in over 4.7 seconds at pre-combine workouts and that was the reason he didn't run today.

If true, it would be a blow to Jarrett's stock. No one expected him to have one of the faster 40-times, but a 4.7 would be slower than any receiver at the combine. A slow 40-time would worry NFL scouts that he'll have difficulty getting separation in the NFL.

He'll workout at USC's Pro Day, but the numbers he puts up there will be discounted by scouts. Pro Day workouts, especially USC's, are notorious for improving 40-yard dash times. They typically have faster tracks, and more favorable conditions then the combine.


Combine losers - offense
We've had a lot of coverage on the combine winners so far - Calvin Johnson, Joe Thomas, Adrian Peterson, Drew Stanton, Brian Leonard, Greg Olsen, to name a few. But who are the players that aren't performing?

Gary Russell couldn't have had a worse combine. He showed up out of shape and turned in one of the worst 40-times for a RB in recent memory - 4.84. He also managed just 9 reps on the 225 bench!

Zach Miller looked more like an offensive lineman running his 40-yard dash at a slow 4.84. Then he displayed the hands of a lineman, dropping numerous passes during the drills. To make matters worse, Greg Olsen wowed everyone with a 4.5 40-time.

Johnnie Lee Higgins spent two days telling everyone he would run a sub 4.2 40-time and break all the combine records. He then went out and ran a 4.48. While not a bad time, it certainly didn't live up to the hype and was no where near the top receivers at the combine.

Dwayne Jarrett, Brady Quinn, JaMarcus Russell, Tony Hunt and all the other players who choose to watch the drills instead of participate. NFL personal want players who are willing to put it all on the line.

Movers and shakers at the NFL combine
By Gregg Rosenthal
Rotoworld.comPosted: Feb.27, 2007, 11:34 am EST
The NFL Scouting Combine is more pressure-packed than the biggest bowl game. Imagine taking a job interview with millions of dollars at stake on national television. Now imagine doing it in your underwear.

The Combine is especially nerve-wracking because it's not about football. The NFL asks the prospects to perform unfamiliar drills and answer interview questions speed-dating style. The results could mean a round or two on draft day.

Here's my list of the winners and losers out of the offensive players at the Combine.

Risers

Calvin Johnson, Georgia Tech WR - Johnson is a winner just for showing up. Receivers at 239 pounds with gigantic production and a spotless record do exist. The scouting dream is the best player in the country, and it should not be a.ssumed that he'll last until Tampa with the fourth overall pick.

Marc Serota/Getty ImagesCalvin Johnson was one of the mega-stars of the this year's combine.

Greg Olsen, Miami TE - There was some debate about who the top tight end in the draft was: Olsen or Arizona State's Zach Miller. Debate over. Olsen not only ran a 4.51 (Miller, 4.78); he looked fluid and explosive in every drill. He reportedly can't block a lick and may line up wide half the time, but that's good news for fantasy leaguers.

Chris Henry, Arizona RB - As if the world needs another Chris Henry. His lack of playing time in college is a big concern, but the NFL should find it easy to get excited about a 230-pound fullback/tailback who can run in the 4.3s.

Adrian Peterson, Oklahoma RB - This was a Combine when elite players cemented their stock. Peterson, Johnson, Wisconsin T Joe Thomas and Clemson DE Gaines Adams fall into that category. Peterson's speed and explosiveness were on display throughout the day, including his 4.38 40 time and second-place showing in the vertical leap.

Steve Smith, USC WR - Smith played in the shadow of Dwayne Jarrett, but showed that he is faster than originally believed. His route running and 4.44 speed could push him into the second round.

John Beck, BYU QB - By all accounts, he shined in the passing drills. The murky third quarterback slot in this draft hasn't cleared up whatsoever. Beck may have thrown his name into the mix.

Antonio Pittman, Ohio State RB - His 4.4 40 was better than expected. His other drill times were solid. At first, I wasn't sold on this class of running backs. But there is a decent group of second-tier picks such as Pittman and Darius Walker to watch. It won't be as deep as last year's class, but it's not a terrible year to have a mid-first round pick in dynasty leagues.

Robert Meachem, Tennessee WR - Still has a chance to be taken in the first round after his 4.39 and a solid afternoon in the drills.

Anthony Gonzalez, Ohio State WR - A heady, route-running player that seemed destined for the slot in the NFL, Gonzalez showed a lot of short-area quickness. His 4.44 was expected, but his times in the short shuttle and three-cone drill were among the best at the Combine.

Jason Hill, Washington State WR - He impressed us at the Senior Bowl and opened some eyes with a 4.32. He was expected to be in the 4.5s. Extremely productive early in his career, Hill had a poor senior season because of injuries. His skills, including route running and intelligence, transfer well to the NFL. He could be in the second round.

Sliding

Zach Miller, Arizona State - Miller is known as a sure-handed receiver, but he was dropping balls all over the place at the Combine. His 4.78 time compared to Greg Olsen didn't help him either. Miller is still the second best tight end in the draft and his game tape should get him selected in the second round.

Dwayne Jarrett, USC - He didn't run amidst reports that he was stuck in the 4.7 range in workouts before the Combine. Meanwhile, the rest of the tier of receivers behind Johnson enjoyed big days, including Tennessee's Robert Meachem, Ohio State's Gonzalez, South Carolina's Sidney Rice, and Jarrett's unheralded teammate Smith.

Gary Russell, Minnesota - Russell flunked out of Minnesota and was out of football last year and ran in the 4.8s. He said he would be around 4.5 and he could have fallen out of the draft.

Chansi Stuckey, Clemson - A smallish vertical threat with 4.61 speed isn't going to cut it. He started heading south at the Senior Bowl and this won't help.

Rich Eisen, NFL Network - His 6.43, albeit in a full suit and Xenia lace-ups, was embarrassing. He strained a hamstring, adding injury to insult. He had a year to improve on his 6.2, yet apparently showed up out of shape. You have to question his motivation.
