That\'s not a great time! But, I think the good coaches know that the 40-times are not the only thing to consider when drafting a player.

But, no one can tell me it doesn\'t have an effect sometimes.

He certainly didn\'t help himself. I have no idea if they would make him slip in the draft.

Perhaps he slips, but do you take a risk at him being at 16?? I still say it is a no-brainer to try to trade up to get him. Terrell Suggs 40 time was sub-par at the combine too. The combine is probably the most overrated event relating to football. That has been proven time and time again.

DJ is a football player, 40 time aside. I don\'t think he will slip at all. He is the most complete player in the draft. No way he falls out of the top 10, and no way we can hope for that. If we want him, and he is there with Tenn\'s pick, we better move up and take it. He is a LB that ran 4.65 for crap\'s sake. What do we want, 4.4? He can get it done. But he doesn\'t fall to 16, if he falls at all.

You\'re right, he could kill Mel Kiper and still not fall out of the top 10.

Damn!

:rollinglaugh: If he did kill Mel Kiper I think that would make him the consensus number one pick.
