His forty time was expected to be somewhat good (he's supposed to have straight like speed), but I didn't think he'd time quite that fast (4.52 forty). But, as I just eluded, it was actually his footwork and fluidness that somewhat surprised me. He got in and out of his cuts well, maintained good balance, kept his feet moving, and showed off his strong ball skills. I will say he had already proven his ball skills through his career at ND, but it was the complete package that I hadn't fully expected. A few different people have said he tried to make up for the mistakes of the porous defenders around him, which effected his ability to shine and opened him up to more mistakes in coverage. I now wonder if that line of thinking is correct, and if playing on a top level team with strong coaching would correct those issues? Previously I had said Tom was a fourth round talent, but I'm now thinking he could go in the third round. Honestly this was an overall impressive class of DB's today, and a number of them should make good pros. I'm actually really happy to have seen these performances, because they confirmed some of my beliefs. If you need a CB, this is the year to snag one. This years crop of Safeties isn't very strong at the top (Only Kenny Phillips has any business of going in the first round), but I think there should be a number of good late second to third round prospects at the position, and I think the Patriots might be interested in a Safety somewhere in the third/fourth.
