    Nicks runs the best routes of any of them I think. And to me, that's what matters most. That and hands, and he has great hands. Then factor in how he likes to hit defenders... he's probably the best all around by far.

    But I think DJ Moore is winning me over. He could take over for Harper, and get some good time in as the Nickel right away. Plus, he can return punts.
    I know we need receiver, but still. This kid is good.

    Interesting...and something seems a bit off...

    It's normal for these unoffical times to be a little off, but many scouts had Maclin's fastest time in the mid 4.3 range (hand held) and now his best number (electronic) is 4.45 or WORSE??? That is a HUGE difference! And interesting that DHB's number only fell .01 seconds.

    Butler, Knox, and Wallace look like they're flying while DHB looks like a smooth track runner...which he was.

    Wow, Sidbury and Barwin both went from mid-late 4.5's unofficially to mid 4.6's officially.

    I have a sneaking suspicion we'll see DHB get into the high 4.2's at his Pro day with Harvin and Maclin getting into the 4.3's.

    It'll be interesting to see what Crabtree runs. People talk about him having to suck up the pain and run through it...but Crabtree said it's an old injury that doesn't give him ANY pain. Too much drama...lol

    Hey...

    Harvin said he measured in at 5'11 and 3/4"? I gotta wait for official numbers because he doesn't look close to 6'.

    And 19 reps for a small guy is quite good!

    Yet another site that contradicts those numbers..

    According to this site nicks ran a 4.54.

    I'd be interested to see a 40 time for brooks foster. He set the WR record for 27 reps and is a good enough basketball player to make the UNC team. Maybe the best athlete in the draft.

    I posted these in the offseason last year, but Harvin being strong is no surprise:
