    These four all clock in with sub-4.4 speed at the Combine or a Pro-Day; Bassey, Hill, and Cromartie all have good quickness in the 3-cone and short shuttle - I have no data on Rushing, and I suspect he is much shorter.

    I'm looking for any impressions you might have on how physical they were and how well they tackled. Did opposing QBs challenge them or shy away?

    Eric Bassey 6' 195 Oklahoma

    Ty Hill 5'9" 179 Clemson - I watched Hill at the Senior Bowl and thought he played too sloppy, relying on his speed to make up for his poor positioning. Anyone have a different impression?

    T.J Rushing 5'11" 180 Stanford

    Antonio Cromartie 6'2" 205 Florida State

    I just know about Cromartie and Hill.

    Remember Fabian Washington? I think he was more talented then Hill, Hill has a BAD backpedal, and like you said doesn't get good position. Hill is aggresive and will sometime miss tackles going for the big hit.

    Cromartie has very fluid hips, and a great back pedal. He wraps up his man well, but isn't a hard hitter, he's more of a pure coverage corner, then an Antrelle Rolle physical corner. Cromartie, in my opinion, will be a pro-bowler in 2-3 years. He was EXTREMELY impressive at his pro day, and he can return kicks.

    box, heres a better, proffesional scouting report

    Hill
    http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/cb/tyehill.html

    Cromartie http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/cb/antoniocromartie.html

    Bassey was ranked as the 32nd corner, and as a late round/fa


    also a report from si.com on cromarties pro day

    Cromartie turned in a pair of solid workouts at the combine and pro day. Considered a true shutdown corner, he ran in the low 4.4s on Thursday, posted a 42-inch vertical jump, had an excellent showing in punt-return drills and an even better showing during defensive-back drills.

    I use the same scouting as Mav., and Broadway Joe posted a quick note on Cromartie. I also saw another report on him, and he is listed as a good tackler but not a physical player there as well. I will try to find the link.

    As we talked about earlier, I REALLY like this guy. That bump and run blanket cover corner that you can go man-up with anyone. Not what BB has drafted lately, but could be like that person we let walk a year ago or so. My biggest concern is his history of injury....

    Bring him in at corner and "ssshhhh!" at safety, and this backfield is deadly.

    ya i love cromartie too
    and his reasoning for leaving is very respectable

    his mom has breast cancer and his grandma is sick

    hes comin off the injury though

    if he hadnt gotten injured and came out, he prob would be a top ten pick

    but i really would not mind the pats pickin him at 21

    I met Cromartie at a track meet, and though he is really confident he seems like a good guy. Also athletically he is a beast. Plus in high school he was also a WR, which allows him to have great ball skills. At 6'2 he can go up with about any WR and have a good chance of coming away with the ball.

    I know I'm going to sound obsessed, but this guy has a 42 inch vertical.

    I would not mind sending next years first rounder, along with maybe a fifth rounder this year for an extra first round picks,

    DeAngelo Williams and Antonio Cromartie in one draft :rocker: :singing:
