This goes back to a previous post (TCU Reagor) of mine Ö don't get too carried away with 40 times in shorts at the combine.

Rarely did you ever see Rice get caught from behind at MS Valley, and San Fran. Perfection of the route tree and had "violent hands". Walsh always said he had "long speed" and a 2nd gear like no other. Football speed.

Trust the tape.

The Combine is my least favorite part of the off-season ... sure let's have these rookies run 40's and believe religiously in all these metrics, then not draft them for another 2 months or get them in camp for another 5 months ... the world moves too fast for half this crap to matter! Unless you own a hotel or restaurant in Indianapolis, nothing worth getting excited over, it is just off-season filler.

I heard that the only real value gained from the combines are the physicals and the interviews. The rest isn't as important as game tape. It has become geared more toward the fans, thus the move to primetime.

Re: 2020 NFL Draft: Saints Prospects

Wouldn't be sad if this happened...


...24. Saints Jalen Reagor WR, TCU

If there’s one team that embraces confidence in their players, it’s the New Orleans Saints, and Jalen Reagor is truly one of the most confident players in this draft — and I’m not just talking about wide receivers.

Reagor jumped an insane 11-feet 6-inches in the broad and followed it up with an equally insane 42-inch vertical. His 4.47-second 40-yard dash might have been slower than some predicted, but after showing up at 206 pounds, no team should be turned off by that time.

Pairing him with Michael Thomas would be scary for a team nearing the end of their Super Bowl window...


88.Saints Tyler Biadasz IOL, Wisconsin...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

4.47 ... fast enough. FWIW, Debo Samuels ran a 4.48 at his combine & damn sure ran away from us in the dome didn't he?

I still expect Jalen's Pro Day times to be slightly better.
