    Only one team was high on Henry though and that was Tennessee...just like Matt Jones the majority opinion was those guys where still reaches. Jones was a projected 2nd round pick and Henry was a projected 4th round pick.

    If Jones was taken in the 2nd round and still played slightly below average (his career hasn't been a total flop) then no one would look at him and say he was a big reach because of the combine...he always had the upside as a receiver in college...he was projected to run a 4.55 at the combine and be a 3rd round pick before the combine.

    The combine is just one piece of the puzzle, and it is an improtant piece.

    A player underperforms to their projections and you question how athletic they are and their work ethic.

    It is important, but certainly not the be all end all. Some teams get too carried away: aka the Jags with Matt Jones.

    I like how a 3erd rounder can earn millions more by busting his a** in these pre combine camps, go into the combine a 3erd rounder and walk out a 1st rounder with out actully getting better at football. Im not knocking it, it can show nfl teams how a guy can improve on his athletic abilty if he really wants to. Ive seen phil jackson CB for Colorado '99-'02 run a 4.33 45in vert run blow out everyone else in every other skills test yet get burned 6 times a game. Make you wonder if people over emphisize these skills test and not enough on game tapes.

    Okoye was a stud at the Senior Bowl but Gholston should blow up the Combine.

    Okoye was put on the map in the Senior Bowl, not really the combine (although he was impressive there as well).

    The Combine is broadcast on NFL Network and it has like 6 hours of coverage for every day there.

    Vernon Gholston might do what Omobi Okoye did last year.

    Vernon Gholston looks like Robert McCune the LB from Lousiville. Any one see him at the combine in '05. Looks like a bodybuilder.

    I mean to tough to say accurately because I mean I can't predict a 4.32 over a 4.34...these guys will definately be in the running for the fastest times though:

    Donnie Avery WR Houston
    DeSean Jackson WR Houston
    Andre Caldwell WR Florida
    Leodis McKelvin CB Troy
    Patrick Lee CB Auburn
    Nile Legania CB Wayne State (heard he can run a very very low 4.2)
    Chris Johnson RB Eastern Carolina
    Jaymar Johnson ATH Jackson State

    Nile is the odds on favorite and my guess...if Darrius Heyward Bey the Soph from Maryland commits he will be on this list as well (as a note he is a 3rd-4th round pick)...All of these players will be on Oakland's raid-ar just because of their 40 time.

    Loadholt is definately best fit at RT...I think he is too tall to play guard.

    Loadholt reminds me of a poor man's Marcus McNeil.

    Loadholt reminds me of a less polished Leonard Davis, he'd also be better at guard, maybe RT.

    Johnny Dingle owned Loadholt all night with his speed and Loadholt is penalty prone we knew that.

    Duke Robinson played pretty good despite the rest of his OL.
