    0Red Bryant and Merling dissappoint

    Im leaving Indy today at 130 my last players i saw.........Both lifted terribly......17 and 20.........reps

    Groves ran a 4.51 and weighed in at 252.............30 reps.........he will go top 15 for sure now.

    When i get back i may post some more interesting stuff from last nights interviews......it got hot in some rooms.

    Before his toe injury in his senior year, many mocks had Groves even in the top ten. He is a great talent and he fits our defense perfectly. He already played LB in college, is a devastating pass rusher and playmaker and he is a leader...

    I like Groves alot, but I think there is still a chance he will be available at the bottom of round 1 or the top of round 2.

    red bryant may need to get stronger but he just ran a 4.98 that's not dissapointing at all.

    speed more important than strength at every position

    Groves ain't going top 15....he left after the 40 and didn't do the position drills...

    Bryant also did much better then originally projected- he ran well and looked terrific in d-line drills...

    everyone talks about the 40/BP/VJ...yet rarely do they mention the position drills which are equally important...
