Mike Lantry, 1972
I know there are two other threads on this topic but I thought this article was great and did not want it to get lost in the shuffle.
The top still looks the same with Suh and McCoy going 1 & 2 respectively. Has BG going 22 to the Pats. Interesting that he has the Lions picking up Jonathon Dwyer in the 2nd rnd. with Jahvid Best still on the board. I think Best is a way more dynamic runner and Dwyer had the luxury of being in a run-heavy triple option offense. Not that he can't be a good RB, it's just I believe you can't pick him over Best if he's still available.
40 times for Mays and Holliday (and others, I'm sure) were downgraded. Apparently Mays isn't as much of a freak as initially thought, although his "official" time of 4.43 is still fast. I can see why people have motives to make times faster, but come on, this is such a crock of shit and such a joke. The combine should take control of this situation somehow. The best part of the article is their picture of the Florida 40-times board seen around these parts for a while.
Here is an article from the NFL combine talking about the Wolverine's top performers, mainly Taylor and Trent. I was always a little skeptical about Barwis' effect on the guys but seeing that Taylor was 2nd best in the bench at 37 reps of 225 and Trent put it up 23 times, I am turning into a believer. The article also said that Trent was one of the best cornerbacks in quite a few of the drills so I guess it shows how the combine can be flawed in rating the players....
So what U of M grads got invited to the NFL combine?
Kudos to Michigan Sports Center for finding this
