More combine stuff:
Rey Malauga pulled up injured during the 40-yard dash. The extent of the injury is not known yet.
Aaron Curry, the draft’s top ranked linebacker, ran a 4.56 forty, the best time for linebackers. Curry also led linebackers in the vertical jump.
Moise Fokou, a defensive lineman from Maryland going into the draft as an OLB, ran a 4.76 forty, very fast for a 240 pound guy. Another good Terp performance in the 40, with Heyward-Bey leading this year’s combine, and Josh Wilson leading the combine two years ago on the defensive side.
Pat White has put up great numbers, leading quarterbacks in the forty and vertical jump, and finishing 2nd in the broad jump, only two inches behind the winner, Josh Freeman from Kansas St.
Jarett Dillard a receiver from Rice led all participants in the vertical jump, and Rutgers receiver Tiquan Underwood continues to represent his school well by finishing 2nd in the vertical.
David Buehler, the kicker from USC, was the only kicker or punter to bench(so far) and put up eye-popping numbers. He lifted 25 reps, and weighed and meausred in at 6’1″ 227 lbs, a kicker! HE’S HUGE!
It doesn’t seem incredibly important, but the top two QB prospects, Matt Stafford and Mark Sanchez both were measured at less than 6’3″, the height that elite QB prospects are usually held to.
Oh and watching SportsCenter, apparently Donovan McNabb wants to wait to sign an extension until he sees the Eagles’ offseason moves.
