Observations from the NFL Combine

Tavon Austin, Stedman Baily from West  Virgina was by far the best in Group 1, Justin Hunter from Tennessee caught the ball very well with his hands.  QB Landry Jones of Oklahoma didn't perform well, over threw and behind receivers all day, Mike Glennon from North Carolina St threw it well. Collin Klein from Kansas State and MarQueis Gray from Minnesota look like they need more time to develop or change positions.  

 Group 2 - Kenny Stills ran a 4.38, dropped a couple balls early, but settled down and made a nice one handed catch on an out route that looked very similar to Greg Jennnings but not quite as polished of a route runner yet. Cordarrelle Patterson of Tennessee the class of this group can do everything, Ace Sanders from South Carolina was super quick caught and everything, Denard Robinson try's hard but clearly isn't ready but could develop into a poor man's version of Randall Cobb. Marquess Wilson of Washinton St caught the ball very well.  EJ Manual of Florida St was better than Geno Smith of West Virgina. I thought Tyler Wilson of Arkansas surprised a lot of people here, threw a nice tight ball and very accurate.

 Just a few other observations: Ted Thompson sat with McCarthy and Brian Gutekunst Director of College Scouting. I notice that most head coaches and GMs were sitting in luxury boxes to view the workouts not Ted and his group they were all seated below across from the finish line of the 40yd dash. Ted was the only GM I saw timing all the players himself.

There isn't one player in professional sports period,that's worth 1 mill,let alone multi$$$/yr with the exception of michael j...These athletes pay in taxes for 1 yr what most everyday people never ever gross in their lifetimes...For the amount of time/effort that they put into their professions...Unbelievable!!!...Right???
