    I agree for the most part but when you see guys like Poe do as well as he did, you have to at least boost his stock some.

    no way the titans spend a 1st on a CB. Especially with all of the success we have had with late round cornerbacks.
  3. Fry Hatin' is what I do.

    People who thought Poe wasn't a top 20 talent before the combine didn't know anything about him to begin with.
    1 people high five this.

    Boy some fans are just amazing... sigh.

    After all of the headcases this organization has drafted over the years why the hell would you want to draft a guy who gets into gang fights, has been busted twice for marijuana and, last but not least, has 4 children from 3 different women? Oh and he's only 23!!!

    Please, for the love of god, character does matter a great deal when will people get this through their thick skulls?

    I really didn't. Memphis was absolutely terrible and it was hard to envision anyone on their side of the field with top 20 talent.

    Poe was ranked as one of the top DTs prior to the combine but really seperated himself from the pack. Guys his size who can move like he does are very rare. He is also strong as an ox.

    Combines are useless, really.

    Basically- in any other situation this would be like looking at a possible employee by giving them typing tests, or other labor tests related to the job- and valuing it more than how well they've done the job in their past... or how bad. You had 3 years to watch them do the actual job... do you really need to know these things? Unless they're returning from injury, no.
    And a 40 yd dash track-style is completely different than ran as an out WITH a pressing DB, on grass, in pads, against wind, etc...

    I don't care if a guy runs a 4.3 if he's proven for 3 years that he's not good at football. This is how guys like Chris Henry get drafted. All you had to do was watch him play at AZ and you knew he sucked.

    Things like vertical jump, broad jump, 40s for anyone other than WRs and DBs.... all completely pointless.

    Who cares if you can do 40 reps of 225 if you couldn't get off your blocks vs Louisiana Tech's guards?



    I honestly think it's just a social gathering these days.

    And for guys like Mel Kiper to cream themselves, and display just how little they know about prospects.

    From the outside, all the combine appears to be is a bunch of tests that measure size and speed, but according to people who are involved in the event, it's mostly all about the medical part.

    Another things about the combine is you're taking a group of prospects and testing them all under the same conditions. All of these guys are working off 5 hours of sleep then having to go and push their bodies to the limit. NFL people want to see how well they handle adversity.
