    Agreed, not great but not horrible. Clady came out last year and put up 24, then proceeded to dominate for Denver as a rookie. Then again, Clady wasn't taken second overall.

    Jason Smith seems to be on the rise and making this a race for the top tackle spot. We'll see how things look in position drills. There's a lot to like about a former tight end who has grown into a 310-pound tackle with great upper body strength and a nasty demeanor on the field.

    Re: The Official 2009 NFL Combine Thread

    Monroe only pressed 23 times compared to J Smith's 33? I thought the knock on J Smith was that he will not be as good of a run blocker because he is more of an athlete who's forte is pass blocking. I'll take the feet of a tight end and the strength of a lineman any day.

    That being said I know that good bench press does not mean good blocker, but if you are a good blocker with a high bench press, then that means you are a STUD.

    With the resigning of Jordan Gross I am all for one of the big 3 OTs, and I am now leaning towards JASON SMITH.

    Andre Smith won't workout basically saying he's out of shape and didn't show up to be interviewed today.

    Re: OT Andre Smith not to workout stock falling

    The NFL Network guys (Mayock, Burmeister, etc.) are painting a pretty bad portrait of Andre Smith. According to them, none of his interviews are going well, he's not working out because he has only been training for a couple of weeks, and was AWOL Saturday morning.

    In other news, Jason Smith and Eugene Monroe had this to say, "Cha-ching!"
    "Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning." --- Hesiod

    Re: OT Andre Smith not to workout stock falling

    I am disappointed when I initially heard this news. When I thought about it however I realized that it could work out for us. Andre is dropping as a top tier tackle. It has been debated if he should even be a tackle or if he should be a guard. With him not working out, and people questioning his work ethic, could he fall to us in the second round? If he does I don't think that we can left him get past us. We could then plug him in at guard and have a top tier offensive line.

    Well, I'm pretty sure that crosses him off our list, tbh.

    I highly doubt he would fall ALL the way out of the first round just because of the combine, but if he does I would be thrilled beyond recognition. If we could grab Jason Smith AND Andre Smith that would be the coup of the century.

    I read somewhere that James Laurinaitis measured in at 6'1 7/8" and 244 pounds.

    This is what I've been able to compile so far...

    Jason Smith
    6'5" 309
    Arms: 33 3/4"
    Hands: 9 3/4"
    Bench: 33
    40: 5.22
    Broad: ?
    3-Cone: 7.53
    Shuttle: ?

    Eugene Monroe
    6'5 1/4" 309
    Arms: 33 7/8"
    Hands: 11 1/8"
    Bench: 23
    40: 5.16 (unofficial)
    Broad: 9'2"
    3-Cone: ?
    Shuttle: ?


    Also, Wagoner is reporting on the official Rams site that Aaron Curry said his measurements were 61 1/2" and 254 pounds. Nice!

    This!

    After watching this first day, I'm loving Jason Smith. (Monroe looks good as well, and Meredith's speed/strength combo is interesting)
