    Damarcus Gannaway, legit 4.3 speed at 6.2 and 205 pounds...

    Steiny keeps pimping this guy as a can't miss prospect, Bent says it's not just Steiny blowing smoke up everyone's behind and that indeed he has really impressed the coaching staff. I'm trying to think who has those kind of metrics in the league but i'm having a hard time. I also like the fact that Gannaway tore it up in the arena league before signing with us.

    Although I don't know all that much about DaMarcus Ganaway, I do know that our 2nd round draft pick in Stephen Hill runs a 4.3 flat. For a 6'4/6'5 220 pound WR... That's very impressive.

    Who has a better chance of making the team, WR DaMarcus Ganaway or his brother, RB Terrance Ganaway?

    Well if he makes the team.. That would be 3 legit 4.3 receivers on the roster.

    Hill,Chaz,Ganaway

    Which is a huge change from last years Group.

    Dexter Jackson and Eron Riley also have run under 4.3.
    Dexter's forty was faster than DeSean Jackson's at the same combine.
    Eron Riley is 6'3+ and has a 40'' vert and ran in the 4.2s

    Backfield speed

    McKnight ran a 10.4 100 meter in HS.
    i suggest we add Will Demps 10.05 100 HS
    to the backfield

    Edit:

    I saw some of his college highlights. He looks impressive for a small school kid.

    If all he has is "metrics", then probably not since these guys have already been on the roster.

    But supposedly people are raving about the SKILL they're seeing, in which case beating out Turner/McKnight shouldn't be difficult at all . . .

    We definitely could benefit from a speed boost on all squads.. however.. it seems like Sanjay Lal drank too much of Al Davis's cool-aid..

    I know some Jets fans regard pessimism as a badge of honor, but I don't see why our guys have to stink just because they have good #s.

    Schilens is more a question of his health than his ability. If somehow he can stay on the field, he's definitely given reason to believe he'll upgrade our WR corp.

    Ganaway has at least shown an ability to succeed at an AFL level. Doesn't mean much, but is better than some guy off the street.

    Hill has the potential to be GREAT. Doesn't mean he will be, but doesn't mean he won't, either.

    I understand if you want to water down the kool-aid, but some people automatically assume the better the guy looks, the worse he's going to be . . .

    I think the kid is going to impress. Not because of his speed, but because he can play, and I come as close as I can to guaranteeing a spot on the 53 man roster. You heard it hear first...well not first, but early. Say goodbye to Turner.

    Damn he was from temple. He owned in practice and choked in games. Jets had another preseason practice champ a few years ago. Back when penny was qb he was tearing it up in practice, but dropped everything in the games.m
