    Deon Butler - PSU ran a 4.26. He's a small shifty kid. Former walk-on who has
    busted his you know what to become a good football player. Not sure who. But,
    I remember some projecting him as a possibility after a good performance in
    Rose Bowl.

    I knew Heyward-Bey would outrun Harvin. He just made himself a lot of money I think. Someone is going to reach for him in the first round, even though he's basically just a guy that runs one route.

    Heyward-Bey would be a great fit, because our WRs don't run routes at all.

    Our WRs don't run routes because they are smart enough to adapt. Heyward-Bey is not.

    I'm almost saddened by the way Derrick Williams from Penn State ran.

    Heyward-Bey ran an official 4.2 according to the NFL Network guys, giving him the fastest time in this draft class and tied for second fastest ever.

    And he can't run a route to save his ass, either. Chad Jackson version II

    Brian Robioskie is a receiver. He also ran an 4.51, H He is a younger Hines Ward. But he is no longer a 4th rounder, but has moved up into the third round.

    I certainly wouldn't be opposed to bringing him in as a 3rd round pick. He looks like a quality possession guy in the making, with the tools to be a secondary down-field threat. With a lot of the guys I had looked at as 3rd round steals now moving up into the second, he's a very viable option at a position of need that would be a decent value too.

    Even before the Combine, most ratings had him as a 2nd-3rd prospect. I think he's seen as an unusually "safe" WR.

    Darius Heyward Bay ran a 4.3. Wow! Did he just sneak himself into the 1st round? I think he'll be an early 2nd at least now. Didn't DryHeat like DHB as a prospect? What are your comments on his route running and intelligence. What did you see on film that you liked about him?

    Oh gotta give a shout out to Deon Butler too who ran a 4.38. I had the Pats taking him on the second day in my pre-combine mock. He might move up a round or two because of the speed. I had my eye on him because he had a reputation as a playmaker for PSU.

    I thought Mike Thomas looked great today. Possibly (or probably) doesn't fit here due to Welker, but some team is gonna get a player, imo.

    Two day two WRs on my Pats prospects list faired well today:

    Kenny McKinley, South Carolina, 6'0 189 ran a 4.44 with a 37.0" vertical. About what I hoped for.

    Jarett Dillard, Rice, 5'10" 185 ran a 4.53 and so far has the Combine's best vertical and broad jump (all positions) -- 42.5" VJ 10'9" BJ. Was hoping he'd time faster, but will settle for his great leaping ability.

    These are two highly productive hands catchers also known to be good route runners. McKinley and Dillard aren't without flaws, but considering the Pats abundance of picks, selecting a WR on day two is hardly a gamble compared to investing a day one pick on the position.

    Super sleeper: Kevin Ogletree. Nice size (6-2), nice speed. Available mid-rounds.

    If only the Pats could get some inside info from those UVa coaches... ;)

    Kenny Britt performed very well. 6'2 7/8Ht 218Wt 34"Arms 9"Hands 4.48Secs 23Reps 37.0" 10'4". 34 inch arms is kinda freakish. I like freakish arms and hands. Now that NFLN and everyone likes Robiskie, Iglesias is overshadowed. Iglesias is a little shorter but everything else is pretty even.

    I like Britt. Watched him a few times this season for Rutgers. Looked hard to cover and showed good hands. Wouldn't be upset with him at all.

    I think Britt might climb up the draft board.
