Well, JFF has added weight and his trainer says he's more focused on preparing for a 16-game NFL season than impressing at the Combine. Goal is to prevent injuries and add bulk to take the pounding. Smart goal, IMO.

 

Doesn't that take away from one of his best attributes? I guess he's really banking on his development in the pocket

he'll be having his own pro day at A&M on March 27.

 

top round QBs dont throw at the combine that often. nothing to gain.

 

I hear a lot of commentary in the media that JM's arm strength is a concern, but those comments are always quickly followed with the opinion that a few improvements in his throwing motion are all that is needed to fix the problem.

 

Shouldn't he have the kinks worked out of his throwing mechanics by now? What was he doing with all the extra time he had when everyone else was in class? I know he's leaving early, but it seems that if there are still glaring problems with his arm that it's either a coaching issue or he hasn't been successful in making adjustments and sticking with them.

It's his speed and quickness that has kept him from taking a pounding. If he loses that, he's toast.

 

Funny, but that's pretty much the same thing VY did. If Vince was coming out this year, I wonder if he'd feel the same need to bulk up?

That eliminates the Manziel factor. He's a mobile QB. He's not a pocket passer. He won't do WOW things if he's not mobile.

Kent State RB Dri Archer almost set the all-time combine 40 record.

 

4.26 vs. Chris JohnsonՉ۪s 4.24.

 

Johnson noticed too.

Manziel is the best passer in this draft, and that is not just the Aggie speaking in me. Biggest knock on him by most is his durability, so he bulked up( has been progressively getting bigger since Spring 2013). He has never been sub 4.4 (in his own words) and his mobility is not based around speed but agility and quickness.

Manziel has a weak arm by nfl standards, he struggles to go through progressions, he is turnover prone, and he has never displayed any sort of pocket presence.

He said he would hit the 4.4s and he did.

 

Clowney had a split sub 1.5. That shows explosive move off the line.

 

It is unofficial, but the 4.47 40 would've finished sixth among this year's RBs.

 

And he measured 6-5, 266 pounds.

Dude is a freak. Only question about him is his motor and drive. Does he have it?

Was Clowney's 10-yard split the fastest ever by a DL?
