Day 2: Final Combine Notes

February 22, 2009
Pat White Was The Most Exciting Part of the Combine

"Pat White I Thought Stole The Show On About Everything."

As we end day 2 of the combine, I have to say that I was a bit disappointed by the Running Backs. Not one, not even one was able to crack under 4.40 in the 40 yard dash which we usually have at least one or two do. The closest we got Cedric Peerman with a 4.45.

Also we got in the official results of the Wide Receivers 40 yard dash and the results were a lot different than the unofficial ones. Johnny Knox really ran a 4.34 when it was thought that he ran a 4.24. Also Deon Butler who was supposed to be a .1 second slower ended up .4 seconds slower. The true fastest Wide Receiver was Darius Heyward Bey. 

Pat White, I thought stole the show today on about everything. He was just amazing and really helped raise his stock as a QB or any other position. I would honestly like to see him drafted as a QB because I think he might be able to make some real noise in the NFL. The Texans might be a good destination for him where he could join former teammate Steve Slaton.

Josh Freeman looked great in his jumps. He finished first in the Broad Jump with a 9’11” and second in the Vertical Jump with a 33.5. Freeman was very inconsistent today all around. He had a weak 40 yard dash time for a usually very fast QB, and had some bad and good throws in the passing drills. I am not sure if he raised or lowered his stock today.

    Garrett, I definitely agree that Pat White stole the show among QBs. And I’ll say the biggest disappointment was Mark Sanchez. His numbers werent aful or anything, but he looked pretty middle of the pack in his throws, and he did not impress at all. do you agree?

      I agreed that he was middle of the pack in his throws but honestly in those drills that’s is not what i look for. QB’s all think that it will hurt their stock to throw but i respect sanchez for doing so. i look for their back drops in those drills. 3 steps, 5 steps, etc. he looked pretty good doing those. the throws looked average but you can credit the miscommunication between him and these new receivers for that.

    Maybe your right, but I am just not nearly as impressed with the Stafford/Sanchez duo as I was with the Ryan/Flacco duo. I think Stafford will be good after a year or two as a backup, but I think Snchez has a hige bust potential.

      yes, Sanchez does have very high bust potential and i am definitely more more impressed with the flacco, ryan duo. they both have big bust potential but remember that bust potential is based on who has the higher expectations. if they both had equal careers, stafford would be the bigger bust. i think that in that way stafford carries the biggest bust factor.
