@tsjc68 @Gilbert Hernandez  I'm having a hard time gettin excited about this guy as i have no idea what he brings to the table? (especially if he really ran a 5.25 40?

@Ron Alexander @tsjc68@Gilbert HernandezFunny, but there a lots of guys who blaze it up at the combine [*cough cough* Stephen Hill, Vernon Gholston, every Raider WR pick *cough8] but who aren't able to translate that speed into practical NFL skills.

I like that the FO targeted "football players," guys who produced and love to play the game, not necessarily world-class athletes with no football IQs.

@a57se @tsjc68 @Ron Alexander @Gilbert Hernandez  I thought there were slightly better alternatives on the board that I preferred but think George and Enemkpali were still quality selections and people are panning them needlessly.  They both can play.

@tsjc68 @Ron Alexander@Gilbert Hernandez 

add 0.05 to their pro day times (at least that is what the scouts do from what I've read) and IK still is slow as molasses.......

I am not impressed with wither of our LB selections.....i thought there were much better alternatives on the board.

We'll see.

@Ron Alexander @tsjc68 @Gilbert Hernandez  He ran a 5.01 at the combine, not a 5.25.


And at his Pro Day at Louisiana Tech, Enemkpali dropped that down to a 4.86.


Also, Jeremiah George (who we spoke about earlier) also improved his 40 time at his Iowa State Pro Day, running a very good 4.66.

Neither of them had good combines, but it could be just that: that they didn't have good combines.
