WR Triandos Luke (4.3 sec/38"V) 3rd rnd?

During four seasons at the University of Alabama, wide receiver Triandos Luke totaled 90 catches, 1,072 yards and nine touchdowns. But in one afternoon at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis last month, he was clocked in the 40-yard dash at 4.30 seconds, the fastest time for any of the three dozen wide receiver prospects who participated in the event.

That lightning-fast time, along with a 38-inch vertical jump and solid performances in all of the athletic ability drills, certainly commanded the attention of NFL scouts. It probably moved Luke's draft stock up a round in the lottery. Maybe even a couple of rounds. What it didn't do, however, is catapult the former Crimson Tide star into the first-round.
After we get our LB/CB this guy intrigues me as a 3rd rnd WR. Bama didn't throw much so his numbers reflect that. But I saw this guy consantly open as the intended pass fell way off course, again and again.
Indy is a notoriously slow track. He runs a 4.3?
If we don't snag Devery Henderson with 2B, and Luke is there at 3, I'd take him.
Imagine a 4.2 sec Stallworth (although that was at the fast UT track) and the 4.3 Luke in the slot. Not to mention Horn and Pathon.
We'd have more speed than a Mississippi truck stop.
