INDIANAPOLIS – The players available for interviews today are receivers, running backs and quarterbacks and they’ve been entering the room at a dizzying pace.
There were a lot of receivers early in the day. A few that could end up in the Bay Area caught my attention.
Oddly enough, none were over 6-feet tall. These three are all 5-9.
A star in Appalachian State’s upset of Michigan; he could be someone’s Wes Welker. He played in a spread offense and is good in the open field and has speed.
The Cal wideout has enough buzz that he could creep into the end of the first round after a strong showing at the Senior Bowl. He could be available early in the second round for the Raiders. He said his quickness distinguishes him from his more known teammate, DeSean Jackson.
He weighed only 169, but said he’s healthy and will workout this weekend. A good workout would mean he wouldn’t last past the middle of the first round.
Of the running backs I saw, Darren McFadden definitely looks the part of a star running back. He’s 6-2, which is tall for a tailback, but Adrian Peterson is tall, too.
I had no idea Michigan’s Mike Hart was so small. It’s easy to see why teams might be concerned with his durability.
The NFL is kicking us media folks out the room shortly so I’ll check back with more tidbits on the day later.
