Darryl Blackstock, Virginia LB
Pro Day at the University of Virginia was on Wednesday (March 23). I wasn't really nervous. I knew that whatever was going to happen would happen, so I ate my ham, egg and cheese sandwich from Burger King and got prepared to run.
Along with about 15 of my Virginia teammates, I worked out for scouts from almost every NFL team. I ran a 4.56 and a 4.61 in the 40-yard sprint. I am pleased with my times, and I think they helped my draft status. I also did a 60-yard shuttle run, but I didn't do any other drills. It was raining outside, but the workout was held indoors, so my times were not compromised.

I spoke with representatives from Miami, Kansas City and New Orleans. I have been a big Chiefs fan for a long time because my stepdad liked them, so K.C. could be a good place to play.

I probably won't be going to New York for the draft. I'm planning on having my friends and family with me at my house. I'm going to try to treat Draft Day like any other day, but I know that I will be real anxious for my name to be called. This is a big moment, and I can try to keep my cool, but I'm getting antsy about where I'll end up. I'm not too nervous, though, because I know that I'll be happy just to play wherever.

I'm going to continue training and waiting. I've done all the drills that I can for the teams, so now I just wait for April's draft and for my name to be called. I can't wait to contribute to a professional team, and I know that whichever team takes me is getting a real good guy who can do a lot for the team. Draft Day should be a lot of fun.

the thing that troubles me is the chiefs picking right ahead of us. they need defence worse than we do.

Baron, I\'m going to put this here, but it could go in any of your recent posts: thanks for all info. There are a couple of guys around here who really keep on top of things, and I\'d like to commend you for your efforts of late. Thanks. :)

don\'t know if you should thank me or my schedule of late...
sorry theres been so many..but I\'m just getting tired of the same old same old..and trying to stay positive.

hopefully the front office will give us more reason to cheer instead of groan.

btw-I got the sporting news draft guide-very good pickup...interestingly enough it gives us a B for our drafts the last five years.
