    Some pro day comments via cnnsi...

    - Jamar Chaney, who was the fastest linebacker at the combine, ran his 40s between 4.45 to 4.48 seconds, more than one-tenth faster than his clocking in Indianapolis. Chaney looked terrific in position drills afterwards. His senior season and performance in pre-draft events marks a terrific comeback for a guy who sat on the sidelines in 2008 with a broken ankle.

    - Running back Anthony Dixon ran in the upper 4.5-second area (4.58). This represents an improvement of almost two-tenths from his combine mark and will push Dixon towards the late part of round two.

    - Receiver Antonio Brown, who clocked 4.57 seconds in the 40 during the combine, improved his time to 4.49 and caught the ball well during drills.

    - Bryan Anderson, one of the biggest sleepers at receiver, raised some eyebrows. The big pass catcher measured 6-feet-5 and 212 pounds, then ran 40 times just under 4.55 seconds (4.50 and 4.58). His marks of 37 inches in the vertical jump, 4.06 in the short shuttle and 6.81 seconds in the three cone also stood out. Anderson later grabbed every catchable ball thrown his way during position drills, which surprised no one.

    A four year starter at Central Michigan, Anderson left the school ranked second in career receptions (290), first in receiving yards (3648) and first in touchdown receptions (28). He moves towards April as a legitimate fourth receiver on the NFL level and a possible later round selection.

    - One week ago Monday, during Georgia Tech's pro-day, we noted receiver Demaryius Thomas was seen easily moving around on the left foot that was surgically repaired at the end of February. Sources close to the situation told us yesterday the rehabilitation is going well and there's a good chance Thomas will do a workout for scouts before the draft. There's no date yet and the details of what the workout will be comprised of are still to be determined. We expect the decision to be made in the coming weeks.

    - After a stunning performance in the 40 and three-cone sprint, Dexter McCluster shined during position drills. Scouts lined him up all over the field; as a running back, slot receiver and return specialist as the Seattle Seahawks had McCluster field punts at the end of the day. His workout was near flawless.

    For the speedy skill player from Ole Miss, it was the end to a trifecta of standout performances since January. After a terrific week of practice at the Senior Bowl, McCluster displayed great football skill at the combine and topped it off with a huge dose of athleticism today. He now moves towards the draft as a second-round choice and is heading into the middle part of the frame.

    - Several scouts have mentioned how terrific Notre Dame's Golden Tate looked in position drills as he caught everything thrown in his direction. Scouts specifically instructed Damarius Bilbo, the former Georgia Tech prospect who was used as the practice quarterback today, to fire the ball into Tate's hands to test their integrity. Tate and his hands passed the test. The junior receiver will once again perform in front of a large group of scouts as he is expected to be part of Jimmy Clausen's April 9 workout.

    If Brandon Graham is off the board and we can't find another defensive player who fits or is good value, Tate should be the pick. Especially over Thomas who is too boom or bust for my liking.

    I would LOVE to get McCluster in round 2.

    Would be an excellent replacement for Leon. Could be the 3rd RB, slot receiver, and KR/PR.

    I usually scoff at trade down notions, because of the unpredictability, but the more I think about it, I would love a trade down into the mid-30s, pick up a pick in the low 50s, and nab McCluster and Nate Allen.

    This team is solid, I think we just need some more playmaking on both sides of the ball, and I really like both these guys.
