    If a guy of this caliber slipped to us, despite us signing some WRs this offseason (2 of them to 1 year deals essentially)... would you take him?

    He's slipping for a reason. 4.62 and 4.67 in his pro day. Doesn't say a great deal about his work ethic if he's not in shape at such an important moment in his career development. He sounds like LenDale White.

    Unless he got to pick #91, I wouldn't even call it "slipping to us". I think he'll definitely be there at #24, and possibly #60 if we still had it. So, no, I wouldn't draft him.

    It's not just the 40 times...reports from the USC pro day say Jarrett looked stiff and dropped some balls, and his 3-cone time (arguably the key number for a Pats receiver) was a sluggish 7.28 -- an acceptable time for, say, a run-stopping ILB. If he slides, he's earned it.

    According to scout.com his non running performance was very good :

    "According to sources both Jarrett and Smith looked outstanding catching the ball"

    If his 3 cone was 7.28, that's bad. A similarly sized Meachem had a 6.97. OTOH, Meachem's shuttle was 4.31 and Jarrett's as reportedly between 4.14 and 4.20.

    FWIW, Chad Jackson had a 4.03 and 6.74 on the shuttle and 3 cone respectively.

    Huh, I'm curious which report is more accurate! Here's one I read:

    http://www.dailybreeze.com/sports/articles/6764032.html
    "Jarrett's pass-catching workout wasn't smooth, either. His cuts weren't nearly as sharp as Smith, and he slipped and fell on one. A scout for an AFC team described Jarrett, who is 6-foot-5 and 214 pounds, as stiff."

    Well your report was more detailed, the line I presented was pretty much all that was there about that aspect.

    I'd rather take Gonzalez if we had to take a WR. But we don't. I want to see the draft be about the defensive side of the ball. No RBs either. Sammy Morris is a very capable runner to take the pressure off of Maroney.

    We can draft him at #91 and just let him sit in the end zone and throw jump balls to him all day.

    Not even in the third round. We don't need WR's. There are plenty of WR's who are faster which means they are better than him. I don't want a Mike Williams clone.

    Bethal Johnson offers more than Dwayne Jarrett. He can return kicks and is a deep ball threat. Dwayne Jarrett is slow and CB's will be all over him.

    Jarrett will be another David Terrell, Marquise Walker, Mike Williams, etc. who could abuse short and slow DB's of the college ranks but as soon as they get to the NFL they fold. By all accounts Jarrett has the same **** attitude as these guys and Bethal Johnson.

    I would take him in a heartbeat at#28, not so sure about #24. I could care less what his 40 time and cone times were, I've seen him play football, and he's quite good at that. Oh, and to compare Bethel Johnson to Dwayne Jarrett is a joke, Bethel couldn't carry Dwayne's jock, in college and I bet as a pro as well. Dwayne Jarrett will be a helluva NFL player, mark my words.

    Nope. Why would we sign a slow receiver with character issues, when there will several players higher on our draft board available?

    Oh nooooooo! Ok, since you asked for it, here's Gil Brandt on nfl.com:
    "A.J. Hawk had one of the best workouts people coming to the Combine for years can remember. He clocked 4.59 in the 40, had a 40-inch vertical and did 24 reps, making him a top 10 pick."

    And NFLdraftscout.com lists the exact same time. But forget those rags. Where should I be looking to get the official sebman times? ;)

    Anyone I would draft in a heartbeat at 28, I'd probably take at 24 also.

    Jarrett might be an Anquan Boldin type. Not impressive 40 times but has the talent to get it done at the next level. I haven't been following the hype much on this jarrett kid but weren't there questions about his attitude and work ethic?

    Boldin's character, leadership and intelligence were impeccable. Dwayne Jarrett is no Anquan Boldin. Be afraid; be very afraid.

    So tell me why ESPN keeps telling us that he is NOT Mike Williams. This is like deja-vu all over again. Mike Williams was supposed to be this stud top 15 pick. Then ran like an idiot and was out of shape, but thank god for the Lions to snag him.

    Good work ESPN...

    That's the one GBN carried....


    7:00 PM): More news from SoCal… Dwayne Jarrett's rather pedestrian 40 times (4.64, 4.65) at his Pro Day workout yesterday have some people putting a second-round grade on the USC wideout. Those times were much slower than the 4.4 that fellow WR Steve Smith turned in at the Combine and slower even than LB Dallas Sartz's 4.58 and DL Travis Tofi's 4.57 yesterday. Jarrett's pass-catching workout wasn't smooth, either. His cuts weren't nearly as sharp as Smith at least one scout said Jarrett looked stiff. So Jarrett's final draft grade is going to be hard to slot. His production and numbers are impressive and he certainly is a great target but those speed numbers and less-than-impressive workout after foregoing the Combine is sure to raise red flags.

    My heart may stop if we take him anywhere in round one, so my answer is NO.
