    ... ran a 5.03 and a 5.11. Someone posted here before that this guy might be drafted in Round 2. Not likely.

    OUCH. That is very bad. That is a half second slower than people thought he would do. His stock is going to plummet.

    That would be me. :( I was actually thinking the Pats might have to trade up to get him since so many teams run the 3-4 and he's from Virginia (Al Groh).

    OUCH is an understatement. How can a LB run that slow? That's unheard of. I figured he would run a 4.75-4.8, at worst. He didn't look that slow in games.

    Oh well, all this means is that he'll be the steal of the draft :singing:

    BTW, what was his weigh-in?

    He's a Ted Johnson replacement candidate with his size and reputation. I think I'd like to try DE Mike Kudla of the Ohio State in the TJ run stuffer role, he ran a 4.6-ish 40 and benched 45 reps and is 6'2" 265. Not a knock on Kai, I just think we can find the same run stuffing quality in a more athletic package.

    Yeah, I was talking up Parham quite a lot too. That time sucks. It's slower than some DTs. I know he's got perfect size and great intangibles. But that speed just ain't gonna cut it.

    I agree on Kudla. Other than him, a conversion project that interests me is Mark Anderson from Alabama.

    Here's his 2005 stats--

    Interesting he had 8.5 sacks from an ILB position. May play faster than he timed out. Kudla does sound like a beast, but will likely draw a lot of interest.

    Parham played both inside and outside. Al Groh had him blitz quite a bit. Same with Ahmad Brooks.

    keep in mind, BB and Poli tend to draft guys who can make plays, and rarely look at combine stuff IMO.

    I too talked up Parham quite a bit. He definitely plays faster than a 5 plus in the forty. Part of the reason for that is because his instincts are so good. I would be very curious to know if he went to any speed camps before the combine. If he did, he needs a refund.

    Still worth a pick?

    With that timing, Kai probably drops out of the first day. Too many other good players who are faster (particularly OLBs abd DBs). Lucky for us we have 3 early second day picks. I think his colllege production warrants using our second 4th rounder on him.
