  • Combine Shakedown - risers and fallers

    So what is everyone's thoughts on the draft shakedown from the combine?

    The defensive players are yet to run but there are some interesting activity offensively;

    here are the guys that have stood out for me

    WR
    Crabtree may have slipped a little, but not too much

    Heyward Bey has stepped up and will be in the mix with Harvin for the #3 WR

    Nicks and Britt solidified themselves as legitimate 1st round talents

    Derek Williams really hurt his stock, maybe a 3rd or 4th rounder now

    TE
    Jared Cook stepped up and is a legitimate 1st round talent

    RB
    really under impressed, many will need a good pro day

    Wells and Moreno ran alot slower than expected, both will slip. One could easily end up in the second round.

    Rashad Jennings failed to impressed, probably mid/late rounder


    OT
    Jason Smith stepped up and is now in the mix with Monroe to be the 1st OT taken

    Andre Smith has slipped, probably into the 10-20 range

    William Beatty stepped up and is a legitimate 1st round talent

    Jamon Meredith stepped up and is a likely an early 2nd round talent

    OC
    Eric Wood stood out and is probably an early/mid 2nd round pick

    I didn't get up early enough to watch, why did Jennings look horrible?

      Andre Brown is doing his best Matt Forte impression. Great Senior Bowl week, good size, good speed.

      Robiskie has done nothing but impress

        AQ Shipley helped his cause. He's only 6'1, but finished in the top few among OL in several categories.

        We'll find out March 18 if Williams' flu excuse was true or not.

            Brian Robiskie continues to be impressive. I'm liking the kid more and more.

              from the madd futher mucker

              Both Andre Brown and Donald Brown were impressive. Given that Javon Ringer had his knee scoped last month, his 4.53 dispelled some doubts.

              Deon Butler's time was exceptional and should (along with a few extra pounds he put on) boost his draft stock.

                Despite it not being a huge need, seems like the Jets are going to run the rock a lot this year and don't have a guy like Brown on the roster. I'd love him in green, think whoever drafts him is getting a really solid player.

                  I came away the most impressed with Darius Heyward-Bey, we all knew that he was a physical freak, but he proved it at all points. His vertical was amazing, he lifted better than I thought he would and he obviously ran the best time out of all receivers.

                  Also, I was impressed with, like most, Brian Robiskie. I think he has solidified himself as a 2nd rounder as of now, and can only improve it from here.

                  Besides the obvious stock downs like Andre Smith, I was severely disappointed in Derrick Williams. I came into the combine thinking he was a sure second round selection, but he just looked nervous and somewhat unprepared. Maybe he just isn't the guy who we think he is, but he could prove differently when the pads are on.

                  Also, Jason Watkins looked awful.

                    Not making excuse but it has been reported that Watkins took part even though he has a torn labrum.

                      Cedric Peerman tore up the combine probably most impressive player and I didn't expect it from him. Fastest running back at the combine 4.45. 3rd strongest with 27 reps, 2nd best vert at 40" and also placed in other cone drills.

                        I don't put that much stock into the combine. Andre Smith is the only one I think who genuinely hurt his stock and is gonna go way lower than we thought before the combine started. Wells failed to raise his stock, but I don't think he dropped it. Knowshon I think dropped it slightly. Jennings is still a late 2nd/early 3rd rounder in my book. Derrick Williams was bad, but he can revive his stock with a better pro day. I agree that he isn't the early 2nd rounder he was before the combine though.

                        Lots of guys helped their stock though like DHBey, Brian Robiskie, Jason Smith, Jared Cook, etc.

                          im Sorry I dont think Jennings nor Beannie did bad at all. Do you think they were going to be in 4.4's, they hit where they were expected, you cant measure big backs on the 40 time, but look at there vertical and mostly the broad and you will see they did real well. Beannie had to repeat the broad a couple of times. It shows that they are very explosive hitting the hole and thats what I would want in my big backs.

                          I didnt hear of Watkins injury, if true that helps him cause he looked bad. Not as bad as Garret Reynolds or Parrish
