Before today Trufant was never going to get past DEN or NE anyways.
Early hype is never bought by these teams FO's in regards to players.
Trufant has always been a 1st round talent.

Cyprien did do the backpedal and catching drills and looked great. Much better than Elam.

I hope he didn't too. After a 11 ft long jump and 40+ vertical, he can pack it up and wait for his Pro Day.

Phillip Thomas was in the 4.6's and so was DJ Swearinger.

Swearinger looks goofy running.

Darius Slay 4.31 off his second rip.

Rod Sweeting, 4.37 and Jamar Taylor also with the same as Sweeting.

One thing people do not usually see is that he was a lot better in last years scheme as a mike than this years. Coaches coach to win games, not to develop talent in college. Teo was much better last year playing the traditional Mike, rather than bulking up and playing in this new scheme this year. Plus, he was in position to make plays versus Alabama, he just failed to finish. It's not like he was lost and making mental errors. People have bad single games. However, his body of work over the last 4 seasons speaks volumes to me.
I don't disagree with you, I was just answering the question asked.

Thanks!
I actually think Thomas will be the 1st safety taken barring a complete meltdown today.

After reading these times and your guys posts, i think there will be a run on CBs and WRs and OL in the 1st. If DEN wants a Trufant or Rhodes they may have to trade up. I dont see Poyer or Slay getting past pick 50.
Good news though is lots of talented DTs and RBs available for DEN in the 3rd and 4th round now.

Zero chance of that. Kenny Vaccaro has long been the number 1 safety and will probably go in the top 15, if not top 10. Matt Elam is the other safety who could go 1st round. Most projections on Thomas have him as a day 3 pick, though I could see him going on day 2.

Florida safety Matt Elam is one of my top targets at #28.

I believe just the opposite.
Theres no way in hell Vaccaro goes anywhere near the top ten.
And Elam isnt a 1st rounder either.
Completely disagree.

Elam's best 40 today was a 4.46 (unofficial) -- which is great. For his size, he should run that. However, he did not look good in the drills compared to those who he was with and the second group of DB was by far much better. Despite his straight line speed in the 40, his movements on the field were not fluid and he had heavy feet. He easily stood out as average compared to those with him on the field. Just my two cents.

The guy is simply not a first-rounder and it would be shameful to select him.

how the hell did these 40 times get off so bad? Williams from 4.25 to 4.42? Trufant from 4.31 to 4.38, Milliner from 4.31 to 4.37.

Trufant will be the 1st or 2nd CB taken in this draft.
Rhodes falls to #28 and it a slam dunk pick for DEN.

What about Poyer!?!


If this happens I am going to send you a fruit basket!
