There are plenty of GM's out there who put a lot more weight on game film than the combine.

Brandon Spikes took a dump on the field at his combine and still went early to the Patriots.

I would wager Andrews gets drafted and some team ends up very happy with him.

I bet all GM's put 90% of the weight on game film. The combine IMO is for tie breaking purposes. If you have two players rated the same on film and one does well at the combine and one does not then it breaks the tie. I will say if some one kills it like the Kent State kid and McKinnon it can be way for kids from lesser known programs to improve their draft status or at least get teams to look a lot harder at them. Without the senior bowl and combine Mckinnon could have easily went undrafted.

Jerick McKinnon (32 reps - 4.41) 209lbs
Knile Davis (31 reps - 4.37) 227lbs
Shane Vereen (31 reps - 4.5) 210lbs

The biggest difference between Jerick and the others is his explosiveness. He out jumped both by several inches in broad and vert.

I wonder how Southern lost any games, considering they played with bionic men...

lol, why the sarcasm? We are talking about 1 player from our team, not all of them. It just so happens that this ONE players combination of athletic tangibles at the combine are better than just about every other running back that has gone through the combine in the last 10 years. If you want prove me otherwise be my guest.

I will be the first to admit that he's a project player because he's not good at blocking, and doesn't have experience as a running back in a conventional offense, so he's got a learning curve. I am also NOT saying that because he has performed so well at the combine that he's going to be an NFL superstar, we are simply stating how impressive his #'s are.

However if we had a team full of guys as good at their position as Jerick is, yes we would win every game. :)

He was hurt a lot last year. If I remember correctly he pulled up lame in our game. Then he came back and had a big game in the win over FLORIDA. Dude is a freak. A lot of NFL teams will be able to utilize him effectively.

1st offensive series with McKinnon playing we go straight down the field and score a TD vs. App. He pulls up lame and our offense goes in the toilet after that.

Not to mention that our defense made App's offense look like Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Do you really want to know ?
Turnovers, pour pass defense at times, and a lack of a balanced offense. Really couldn't pass well enough to get out of a deep hole consistently following Shaw, and particularly in 2012. . .kicking !

You know a high percentage of the time the first team to score loses.
Remember that this year. Whatever you do, don't let GaSo score first, pass it on.

Was he the player our three defenders had dead to rights in the field and all of them pulled up and refused to hit him?

Yep. He had already come out hurt and that was his first play trying to come back in. He pulled up lame and the defenders just walked him out of bounds. I gained a lot of respect for App on that play. (puke)

RE: NFL Combine Under Way
For real though. You guys have avoided our star B-Back 3 years in a row, and managed to break our best RB/QB this year... I'm starting to wonder.

However if we keep going back and forth catmom will 01-lauramac2 03-wink

FWIW - props to your boys for not hitting him. I imagine all hell would have broken loose if they did even though it would have been a legal hit.
