RISERS

SI.com said:
Mike Jenkins, South Florida: Jenkins was clearly the class of the cornerback position Tuesday. He started swiftly, clocking in the mid 4.3s in the 40. Jenkins continued to impress with a great practice session, showing some of the finest footwork, hip movement and hands of the day. He also completed 18 reps on the bench, one of the better marks for his position. Scouts came away thinking Jenkins had solidified himself as the top corner in the draft.

SI.com said:
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Tennessee State: Scouts expected Rodgers-Cromartie to deliver a fine performance, and he did not disappoint. He unofficially timed as the fastest defensive back at the combine, as both his 40s hovered around the 4.3-second mark, with some scouts clocking him as low as 4.28 seconds. Rodgers-Cromartie may push himself into the first round after his Senior Bowl and combine performances, which would make him the first Tennessee State player to do so since Ed "Too Tall" Jones.

SLIDERS

Mike Mayock...*** were you thinking said:
Brandon Flowers, Virginia Tech: Scouts and general managers from a number of teams ranked Flowers as their top cornerback in the draft, but that is likely to change. Flowers was unable to break the 4.5-second mark Tuesday and looked ordinary during the practice session.

mayock, seriously, what were ya thinking? he was ordinary at best this year imo and got roasted against LSU

SI.com said:
Kenny Philips, Miami-Fla.: Philips had been anointed as a top 10 pick prior to declaring for the draft, but that thought process has changed. The safety barely broke 4.6 seconds in the 40, which will knock him into the middle of Round 1.

interesting stuff. ive not watched jenkins play in college really so im not qualified to make comments on how good/bad he is.

however, i find it interesting that no matter how impressed we were with cromartie (and i was) its far from a lock that he is the top rated corner and wont be there when we pick

Orlando Scandrick, Boise State: Scandrick clocked in the mid 4.3-second area, much faster than scouts had anticipated.

Scandrick said in an earlier interview that the Saints had paid a lot of attention to him.....good to see he had a good showing.
