    Mike Jenkins will probably run a 4.3, bumping him up significantly.

      On the reverse side, see Antoine Cason taking a Daymeion Hughes (not that bad) fall due to him running around a 4.55.

        I think Cason is pretty fast and i doubt he is going to run less than expected but i predict Talib is going to run slower than most think.

        I do think it's a good topic though, some guys train for the combine and work out better than others then get to the league and cant play. Vernon Davis was a workout freak and he cant get seperation on a football field, Mike Mamula was a workout wonder and never amounted to anything and it is starting to look the same for Matt Jones. Give me football players with heart and it will make up for a lot of short comings.

            On his KR TD this year, he just went to the sideline and sprinted. Nobody could keep up with him, the man has some speed.

              Vernon Davis' freakness shows up on Sundays, but his qb hardly gets him the ball. He gets plenty of seperation and has been a good run blocker with his strength. He has had his fair share of injuries, but when he is healthy, he plays at a high level. He wasn't your typical workout warrior because he put up some monster numbers for a tight end in college.

              Now certain guys like Calais Campbell will probably post some great combine numbers, but everyone will expect them to come out and play at a high level. But he is very inconsistent and you can't expect him to come in start. Calais will have some big expectations, but he just is so inconsistent with his leverage (he plays high too often).

              Btw I find it funny that Mike Mamula's workout isn't even that special when you compare him todays combine times. Manny Lawson would have been a number 1 overall pick with his combine numbers at DE.

                Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will blow all of the other CB's out of the water with his workout numbers.

                  Remember with Mamula it was a dozen years ago, even today someone 6-4 and 260 running a 4.6 and benching what the offensive lineman bench would still be pretty amazing. As for Davis you're right about the QB situation there being a problem.

                        TE Fred Davis from USC will end up doing a Vernon Davis move up on draft boards with a sick time.

                            He plays like a 4.65 guy, you think he runs faster than that?

                              I think he will run as fast as Greg Olsen. He was a receiver before Pete Carroll moved him to TE. I see him running along the lines of Greg Olsen in the 4.45-4.5 range.
