Pro Day means nothing

Standard

According to ProFootballTalk.com, Boise State cornerback Kyle Wilson solidified his status as the number two cornerback in April’s National Football League Draft with a solid Pro Day performance Friday. However, the reality is come September it won’t mean anything.

Wilson ran the 40 yard dash in times of 4.47 and 4.43 seconds. Also, Wilson had a 38 vertical leap and a 10 foot 2 inch broad jump.

What Pro Days are for is to see if a player has the prototypical physicals skills of a NFL player.

What really matters when evaluating a player is game film as they tell the story if a player is a work out wonder or the real deal on the field.

In the end, the good teams take this approach to the Draft.

It’s the season

Standard

With the National Football League Draft coming up in April many teams are putting out misinformation. It looks like one team has already been caught doing that.

Recently Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren stated that he wish he liked former Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen more.

Well that looks like a lie as ProFootballTalk.com is reporting that Clausen will make a pre-draft visit to the Browns.

I am not surprised by the news as quarterbacks Seneca Wallace and Jake Delhomme are not long term answers.  That means they need a quarterback of the future in this years Draft or next years.

Also, with the way the Draft being predicted by experts a quarterback would be the best pick.

In the end, you cannot believe a thing at this time of year until something happens.
