    I truly hope that the rumors about Sweed not loving the game persist and he drops to us at 2.5.

    Either that or Malcolm Kelly gets involved in a bar fight causing him also to drop.

    That's the most important part, it tends to make me think that his wrist injury should be for the most part healed. There was no doubt he was one of, if not the, top WR in this class, it was about his health.

    Any word on how the Texas field is, is it another 'fast track' or is it a fairly accurate time?

    Mayock clocked him in the high 4.4s.

    He said that 3-4 WRs will go in the first round, but most scouts don't have 3-4 graded as first rounders.

    Mayock says that Devin Thomas is leading the pre-draft buzz lately.

    Texas (March 19)

    Texas is one of the favorite stops for NFL scouts -- they have complete control over the day and then get served a big lunch when the workouts are done. All 32 NFL teams were represented, with 75 personnel people in all. Sixteen prospects worked out. They ran the 40-yard dash indoors on Field Turf, then ran shuttles and position workouts under an outdoor bubble, also on Field Turf…

    RB Jamaal Charles (5-11 , 199): Stuck with his numbers from the combine. Ran position workouts and looked good catching the football.

    TE Jermichael Finley (6-4, , 240): Ran the 40 in 4.66, kept the rest of his numbers from the combine, and ran position drills.

    DL Frank Okam (6-4 7/8, 335): Ran the 40 in 5.27 and 5.31, had a 27 -inch vertical jump, 4.66 short shuttle, and ran position drills.

    S Marcus Griffin (5-10 , 196): Ran the 40 in 4.51 and 4.61 (had a bad start on the second run), had a 37 -inch vertical jump, 10-foot, 5-inch long jump, 4.19 short shuttle, 12 reps in the bench press, kept the rest of his numbers from the combine and ran position drills.

    OL Tony Hills (6-5 , 307): Had 24 reps in the bench press, but could not run or do other drills due to an injury.

    WR Billy Pittman (5-11 ,, 195): Ran the 40 in 4.71 and 4.78, ran position drills, and stuck with the rest of his numbers from the combine.

    WR Limas Sweed (6-4 , 210): Ran the 40 in 4.50 and 4.51, had a 37 -inch vertical jump, 10-foot, 8-inch long jump, 4.33 short shuttle, 7.14 cone drill, ran position drills and looked good catching the ball.

    DL Derek Lokey (6-1 3/8, 293): Ran the 40 in 5.18 and 5.19, had a 33 -inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 4-inch long jump, 4.37 short shuttle, 7.57 cone drill, 38 reps in the bench press, and ran position drills.

    That's a better weight for Okam. He looked way too heavy at the combine.

    Anyone see the interview on the NFL Network yet? Does it seem weird for him to say that his wrist is feeling better, yet he's wearing gloves during the interview.

    I don't think that they snatched him from the middle of his workout. He looked calm and composed, not like he had been working out. Maybe it stated to swell afterwards.

    nm- same outfit as his workout, maybe he just didn't have time to change.

The jets need a WR with that stature.
