    Ladarius Green, TE will be the top TE to watch in the 40yd and Bench

    Definitely a potential "workout warrior." His weight (listed at 237) is another factor.

    I read recently that Michael Floyd will run at the Combine. It will be interesting to see his 40 time compared to Blackmon's. While I personally think that Blackmon is a FAR better WR, if Floyd's time is significantly better, it would not surprise me if a lot of people start putting him over JB.

    Kalil's weight really has me questioning him however if he comes in over 310 i would have to re-think his evaluation
    Two answers:

    1. I don't care because we shouldn't take him unless for some reason Saffold cannot play left tackle. He might not have the greatest of technique, but he's shown he can work in a 3-5 step offense. :-)

    2. If he's light, it's ok as long as his jumps are really good. I'll take a lighter guy who can move better as long as his legs are going to put out the force to be able to stand up against said bull rush.
    I believe!

    He’s listed at 295 lbs. That is marginal for an NFL LT. If that is, in fact, his weight, he’d better be a beast on the bench press. My guess is he will show up at the Combine having added 10-15 lbs of muscle, bringing him in line with the standard LT size. He’ll need to carry the weight well, or some could question whether his “playing weight” might be lighter than optimal.
    Looks like I guessed right on this one. Kalil reported at 306 lbs.

    Good news for the Rams, who want there to be a strong market for RGIII: he reportedly measured in at 6'2 3/8.


    Short Shuttle

    Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
    Some view him as the best RB prospect since Adrian Peterson. Others see him as a very solid RB, but not a top 10 pick. The 40 time will be important for Richardson, but many will also be interested in his quickness or “football speed.” If he is viewed as exceptional in that category, he’ll be a lock for a premium pick.
    Unfortunately, Richardson won't do drills at the Combine due to a minor knee surgery. I doubt he'll run a shuttle at his Pro Day, so we'll likely only have a 40 time to gauge his speed and quickness.

    Was just about to report this and you beat me to it!!! oh well.

    So happy to hear he measured taller then 6'2. This can only help his stock and the chances of a trade.

    Great to hear AV, now lets go find a trade partner. With this news, maybe the Rams will be able to fill more spots in the draft. It could be more ammunition for us, so its welcome to hear this development.? Height is taller than I imagined it would be.

    THIS IS THE GREATEST NEWS POSSIBLE.....RGIII had many questioning his size/weight/speed....

    He passed 2 of 3 so far and with a good 40time....he will be a legit prospect....

    I really was starting to get down on him, but these measurements will really help..

    40 time...and a 10+inch Hand Size will keep his draft stock rising.....
