Figured I would start a thread on who in my opinion is the best DB and overall player in the draft. People will disagree but I think we all will agree that players who are both elite athletes and elite football players are hard to find. That is exactly what Hawthorne is. People will say Milliner, etc. are better but teams simply do not test Hawthorne. At all. Some will point to LA Tech but I am a firm believer that it was a blown coverage on the long touchdown. Other than that it was a great battle between two great players. There is no better CB better than Hawthorne in this draft, and I honestly think he is the best in the last few years. In addition to also being tremendous in coverage and a real playmaker, he is the best run support CB in this draft by far.
Also, I wanted to get some clarification on his combine 40 time. As many are aware, official times sometimes take time to get out. I just recently noticed that another site that has an idea of what they are doing recently changed his combine results to a 4.31 40, which is not a surprise to me as I have been adamant he is a 4.3 guy possibly sub 4.3. It does not make his stock any higher or lower to me because he is one of those guys who actually plays to his speed, but does it raise his stock in your eyes? Your thoughts?
