    Re: Combine Bets

    [quote user="GGTM_1977"]Disappointing........just saw a video from nfl.com that said the top WR picks may at best run around a 5.00 40 time. So there will be some good WRs, but they will be slow, like TE slow.[/quote]

    Are you sure they didnt say 4.5s?

You saw how much heat Alshon Jeffrey was taking for allegedly running a 4.88 40, right.

    Re: Combine Bets

    [quote user="BlueSanta"]I agree that Kuechly will do better than most think at the combine. I do not however, know if he will do better then VB at the 40.

    Some things I think will happen and some others I want to see.

    -David Wilson will run very fast. As will LaMichael James. In fact, the Rb group as a whole will do well. I think Darrell Scott of USF could also put up some crazy numbers in a lot of areas considering his size. Obviously, Chris Rainey is a pre combine favorite for best 40 time. Chris Polk reportedly looked slow during the senior bowl week, I am anxious to see if he can prove some people wrong.

    - Zach Brown is going to run a lightning fast 40, and because of it the boards will explode with people who want him, even if his tape isnt that good.

    Ok my bad....I believe they said 4.5-4.6, thats not terribly fast for top WR picks though. The said if Balckman runs a 4.6 or higher at the combine, his stock could drop....

    Yea, overall this WR class is made up of big body guys who arent blazers.

    No. Not even worthy of a bet. The thing worth betting is what his excuse would be.

    here’s how Eisen has performed since he started the popular bit back in 2005:



    2011: 6.18

    2010: 6.24

    2009: 6.34

    2008: 6.34

    2007: 6.43

    2006: 6.22

    2005: 6.77






    Who has the inside scoop on his workout regime, has he been training?....I'm going to say no
