But maybe I assume too much. If speed were everything, Demarcus Van Dyke would be the greatest CB in the NFL. Stanford Routt, Fabian Washington, DRC, Tyvon Branch, Darrant Williams, Michael Waddell, Justin King, Patrick Peterson, & Jon Joseph. There you have the 10 fastest CBs (per their Combine) in the NFL over the past decade. Some of them are good. Some of them are far from good, even downright bad.
So like I said.......speed is not everything.
"Fascinating, Captain. My readings indicate that several posters on this thread have developed a complete immunity to sarcasm."
"That's damn peculiar, Spock."
Let me be as clear as I can - I stated that Wright's Combine time was not an accurate measurement of his on-field speed. This was due to an issue in how he started the evaluation. In my latest response, I even quoted a scout that agreed. That's different than saying the the field at Indianapolis as a whole is an inaccurate measure of speed, which is the stance you tried to attribute to me.
When you're done failing at the "gotcha" game and would actually like to take a stab at discussing the larger points I've made rather than ignoring them, let me know.
This thread's got more straw men than a Wizard of Oz convention.
Getting back to Blackmon....nah I dont think I got anything else to add, Nick is pretty much on point.
I always love the hype machine driven by the media, where players move up or down the week before the draft for no reason.
You guys are making me feel so much better about the eventual Blackmon pick.
Turf Show Times does nothing except bash the guy and declare him not worthy. Everything i see on the kid shows potential and i think he will be a great weapon for Sam.
So sure, Blackmon won't help Rams fans win Madden games, but Donnie Avery helped me out a ton back in the day. I guess you have to ask yourself what is more important, a video game or the real thing :D
With the sixth pick in the draft, the St. Louis Rams select...
