And a reported 17% body fat

 

I think Becton has moved himself into being OL1 in this years draft.

FWIW, for our comparison's sake, in '02, Bryant McKinnie, at 6'8", 343 lbs did a 5.13.

And McKinnie was a freak.

No doubt in my mind that McKinnie could have been on the same level as Jonathan Ogden had he just had the love of football and drive to be.

Apparently, they indicated that his official time is now 5.10, but now is done for the day, as he now has tightness in his hammy, which shouldn't be surprising.

Would love it but only in the 3rd or 4th round.

 

Jack Driscoll and Matt Hennessy might be two more options for the Vikings OL.  Hennessy not sure he is a guard though so that could be an issue because Bradbury cannot be a guard either, kid can move laterally though.  And Driscoll impressed I thought and could possibly be moved into guard potentially.  With Biadasz apparently falling because of injury issues curious if the Vikings would take a shot at him late 1st round but for sure would I think in the 2nd round because he could no question be a OG.

Give me all of the Tristan Wirfs... good size, great mover, and explosive lower body power (as evidenced by the combine record vertical and broad jumps for an OL).

Unfortunately we don’t have a top 10 pick

The list of QBs who had a lot of success in college and then failed in the NFL is much bigger than those that had success in both.  

Most college QBs don't make it in the NFL.  It's not an exact science, right?  

I'd much rather have the guy that did well in college than the one that didn't, wouldn't you?

Another player that looked great and might be there at 25 is Austin Jackson.. In the upper half of every drill he did...

I’d take him in a heart beat if he is on the board yet...
