Doesn\'t have great range?
Are they for real?
He was about 0.05 seconds slower than Vilma wasn\'t he?
He blistered the combine for a 240lb LB.

BTW: Isn\'t every Rookie untested?
Danno is online now

According to a magazine i bought \"Sporting News 335 scouting report Pro Football Draft\" page 8 Notre Dame\'s Courtney Watson was the fastest linebacker, clocking a 4.53. The only other linebackers who ran faster than 4.6 were Auburn\'s Dontarrious Thomas, Washington\'s Marquis Cooper and oklahoma\'s Teddy Lehman. \"THIS WAS AT THE COMBINE\"

page 73.
Courtney Watson, Notre Dame
6-0 7/8 242

NFL Comparison Ed Hartwell, Raven

Strengths: Plays with good leverage against the run. Has the base and lower-body strength to take on blocks near the center of the line of scrimmage. Does a nice job of filling and disengaging from blocks. Show solid hands and can shed blockers. Has great awareness and instincts. Takes solid angles to the ballcarrier. Is disciplined and won\'t bite on many play fakes. Has good ball skills in coverage when he is in position.

Weakness: Does not have great athletic ability. Does not have fluid hips and will struggle in some man-to-man coverage matchups. Will need to be protected in zone coverage. Does not have ideal top-end speed to turn and run with faster running backs man-to-man. Lacks great burst and speed as a blitzer.

Bottom line: Watson doesn\'t have elite skills, but he continues to improve and could develop into a starter if placed in the right system to protect him from man-to-man coverage situations.

Aaron Brooks, it\'s always Aaron Brooks.

If you guys are talking about draft busts, I\'d have to go with Cie Grant.

As far as draft busts would go I owuld say it is a toss up between Cie Grant and Stinkycomb. But the coaching staff will be the biggest bust this year.
