News and notes from the 2010 NFL Scouting Combine: Sunday, February 28th

 

– Clemson WR Jacoby Ford ran an official 4.28 40 today.

 

– Syracuse WR Mike Williams looked rusty in the gauntlet drills today and has a lot to answer about his character to NFL teams. He’s reportedly been saying that he did not quit the team, but no further clarification was given.

 

– West Virginia QB Jarrett Brown opened some eyes today with his athleticism. He posted a 4.54 40 time.

 

– Though LeFevour didn’t throw today, he ran well in the 40, putting up a 4.66 official time. He seems very mobile on tape and displayed that at the Senior Bowl.

 

– Tulane WR Jeremy Williams looked the most comfortable in gauntlet drills today. He was very fluid and catches the ball naturally.

 

– Tim Tebow showed his athletic ability today. He ran a nice 40 time of 4.72 and posted a 38.5″ vertical jump and 9’7″ long jump.

 

– Ole Miss RB/WR Dexter McCluster knocked out 22 reps on the bench press today. That was higher than much bigger, supposedly stronger, running backs. However, his 40 time was only 4.58.

 

– Florida DE Carlos Dunlap was a disappointment on the bench press today, confirming what I saw on film that his upper body strength was poor. Dunlap put up only 21 reps on the bench today, putting him near the bottom of all defensive linemen.

 

– Ndamukong Suh has won the first battle with Gerald McCoy (though this battle was determined long ago in my book). Suh beat McCoy in the bench press today by putting up 32 reps to McCoy’s 23.

 

– Mike Mayock had the quote of the day during NFL Network’s Combine Coverage. “I’m Favre-d out, I’m Tebow-d out. There are guys out there on the field working their tails off. Let’s show them some respect!” Well said Mike. Well said.

 

– Cal RB Jahvid Best edged out Clemson RB C.J. Spiller today in the 40 yard dash. Best recorded a time of 4.35 to Spiller’s 4.37. Spiller and Best put up identical numbers on the bench press at 18 reps.

 

– Zac Robinson, QB from Oklahoma State, may have been the most impressive guy throwing the ball today. He’s capitalizing on not having the big name QBs on the field and following up from a nice Senior Bowl performance.
