    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.

    #75 Jersey

    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.

    #24 Jersey

    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."

    #24 Jersey

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

    No Jersey Selected

    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.

    Some of the numbers you quoted for Willis & Hawk were off, as well....Use the same site?;)

    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.

    Bethel Johnson is pretty fast we should resign him.

    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.

    Haha... nice logic there. You're an idiot if you believe that.

    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.

    #87 Jersey

    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? ;)
