    Two things...

    One, neither Williams nor Huff are going to run 4.8 40's unless they lose a foot between now and the combine. A slow 40-time can cause players to drop, but I would be surprised if either Huff or Williams ran worse than a 4.55.

    Two, I think there's a difference between a borderline first round pick dropping and a post-season top fifteen pick dropping.

    And again, even if Williams and Huff run slower than expected, I don't think it's going to tremendously hurt them because there's already questions about projecting them to safety, which doesn't require as much speed anyways. I certainly don't think it takes them out of the first round, but what do I know?

    I don't disagree with that. My only point is that if they run a sub 4.45, nobody will care whether they play in the Senior Bowl.
