The exciting junior -- who proved to be a super blue-chip, big-play wideout in the Pac-10 -- clearly stole the show in Indy. Mitchell ran in the mid 4.4s, then came through with a top-drawer effort in the positional workout. I've been saying all along that if Mitchell showed true big-league speed at the combine or during an individual workout, he will elevate significantly from the later portion of Round 1. Folks, that's exactly what happened. Mitchell is now a potential mid-first-rounder if the momentum continues leading to April 21."
Did that elevate him to Pro Bowl Substitute teacher?

FOX Sports - NFL Draft - Who did the combine help, hurt?

Looks like if the draft was today, we might just get at least one of the guys we NEED. Come on friday, be suprised if we don't see some new names on the rooster.

Redskins Target Fletcher - washingtonpost.com

According to the WP, the Redskins were unimpressed with Gaines at the combine and intrigued, but not overwhelmed by Branch/

After being unimpressed with Clemson's Gaines Adams and intrigued but not overwhelmed by Michigan defensive tackle Alan Branch -- though sources said the team liked its non-workout meeting with Arkansas defensive end Jamaal Anderson -- sources at the NFL scouting combine last week said the Redskins were deeply interested in former Virginia defensive end Patrick Kerney, an eight-year veteran who has played his entire career with Atlanta.

That's a great sig Sheriff, ha!

I wonder why they were unimpressed by Adams.

Re: Gaines Adams: Dream Come True, being a REDSKIN

I'm thinking it must be something that came up in an interview or brief conversation. Wasn't there talk of him not being very confident in himself?

People at the Senior Bowl said that he didn't appear confident. I didn't hear anything about how he appeared at the Combine. The only other knock(s) that I can think of are: (1) that he didn't participate in the bench press; (2) his interview didn't go well; and/or (3) they didn't think that he would fit well in our 4-3 alignment. I say that those could be the only knocks because, by all accounts, he performed exceeding well in the 40, the shuttle, and cone drills and generally appeared quick and agile in drills.

A little dated, but I think it's still funny.
