How IS that wrist?  Did he catch passes in his pro day?  Did he catch all kinds of throws?

.....just my opinion

I don't give a rat's behind of his time at the combine in shorts.  Did he get run down from behind ALL THE TIME at Texas?  Did he break the big one while there?  Was he a playmaker?

Combine 40 = overrated.  IMO.

That is an AMAZING 40 time for a guy that has the size of Sweed. If he didn't get hurt in 2007 this guy would possibly all over the top 10 in this draft.

i'm skeptical. this guy was in the 4.5s at the combine. i still say he no different from the stable of big possesion guys we already have on the roster.


add me too RPC....(out of curiosity what were Stovall's  times and test's and that matter Clayton's)....it's always interesting to watch the gleam of pre-draft frenzy and some deju vu moments when it comes to the new class.... add in with him coming off the injury too and it seems like we would repeat our WR mold...jmho

Gotta agree with ya RPC.

LOL, really  ???

Sweed (for instance) is faster than anyone besides galloway, consideribly. He can actually catch, something clayton has been hot and cold with.

Also, he wasn't in the 4.5's....

Here's another source who disagrees with the 4.40 time reported in Texas:

"Sweed (6-4¼, 210): Ran the 40 in 4.50 and 4.51, had a 37 ½-inch vertical jump, 10-foot, 8-inch long jump, 4.33 short shuttle, 7.14 cone drill, ran position drills and looked good catching the ball."

Clayton ran in the 4.6's, high 4.6's if I can remember correctly, 4.67...Maurice Stoval 4.57. We are not just talking up to draft Sweed, I want to see Kelly workout and I think Devin Thomas could be an option as well. Fact is this, Sweed is vastly more talented than Clayton or Stovall and he is just as big. He ran a 4.4 flat at this pro day which is amazing for a guy his size. He also has terrific hands. I'm not saying we should draft him but for the bunch that thinks he is what we already have you are strongly misguided.

Sweed is light years ahead of Clayton and Stovall. He is a complete WR at 6'4" 215lbs. and can run a 4.4. We have NOTHING like that here...

"Sweed (6-4�, 210): Ran the 40 in 4.50 and 4.51, had a 37 �-inch vertical jump, 10-foot, 8-inch long jump, 4.33 short shuttle, 7.14 cone drill, ran position drills and looked good catching the ball."


Well if that is what is being said, that is what is being said. I saw him run a 4.48 at the combine. That is fantastic for a guy of his size.

One report says 4.40 today, another says 4.50. Either way, it's pretty fast for his size.

Clayton ran 4.45 at the combine, but he was 30 pounds lighter than Sweed.

I'd think that's accurate. The 4.45 didn't seem right to me.

By the way, here's yet another source saying he ran 4.40 today:

http://texas.scout.com/2/739076.html

“Wow. Three hours out of a day is going to determine everything I did from when I started football in the seventh grade until now,” said Sweed. “I thought about that last night. That's why I came here focused. This is like the National Championship to me. I came in focused, went in, did what I had to do, like we did against USC and came out with a victory.”

Victory is a good way to describe Sweed's performance. He put up a solid performance in all drills, but he shined in the highest profile of them all: the 40-yard dash. He stands at 6-foot-5, but he managed to run a 4.40 in the forty, improving on the 4.48 he put up at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.

SI had him at 4.59.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

He also posted a 38 inch vertical which would have been a half an inch shorter than the high at the combine for WR's (Kenaan Burton).
I really don't understand why more people don't talk about Keenan Burton.

You know what, for the combine guru's he was in the top 10 in practically every drill they competed in. I live just outside of KY. in IN. and I'm really familiar with Burton and his game. He feel off because he got hurt. He is a guy to watch as well.
