    This O-lineman class was called overall deep with players that can com ein and contribute something right away.

    It is being reported that OL Joe Thomas ran a 4.9 40 which is blazing for an OL. Levi Brown also reported to have ran a 5.3, which will lower his stock greatly.

    Greg Olsen - 4.47
    Zach Miller - 4.84
    Ben Patrick 4.78
    Scott Chandler 4.81

    All possible first Day Draft picks

    EDIT:

    Olsen just ran a 4.45 on his 2nd try. Miller a 4.83. To me it looks like Olsen would fill a bigger need for the Packers because with that mid 4.4 speed he could stretch the field for us.

    5.3 won't lower his stock. 40 times aren't that important for an offensive line. The cone drill is more important. Brown is still a top 15 pick in the Draft and possibly top 10. He also had 31 reps of 225 which is solid.

    Yeah Olsen had some good times, by far the fastest.

    I was surprised with Michael Allan, 4.67 for a D-3 player is impressive.

    Kevin Boss also peaked my interest, running a 4.74 and has experience as a HB and FB. Might be one to possibly convert to FB later on.

    The question, IMO, is whether or not Olsen can maintain that mid 4.40 speed with the pads on.

    Your thoughts on that porky?

    I must say, some quick change of direction ability shown by Olsen...

    Everyone slows down some in pads. Though even in pads it's hard to imagine Olsen not being faster than anyone else there today. He really impressed me with this speed. I think even with pads on he's still going to have 4.5 to 4.6 speed and he really seems like a good fit for GB. If Lynch is gone, trading down for Olsen is an option for the Packers in my opinion. He’s been the most impressive TE today and I doubt he lasts until mid round 2.

    In your opinion, would he be a reach at 16?

    Depends who is on the board but for the most part I would say yes.

    Marshawn Lynch, Ted Ginn, Dwayne Jarrett, Dwayne Bowe, Laron Landry, Reggie Nelson, Adam Carriker, and Charles Johnson are all guys whom I believe have better value at 16 than Olsen but a lot of times teams reach for needs so a team like Cincinnati or Green Bay could take him in their respective spots and it wouldn‘t shock me like say Calvin Johnson falling to Minnesota at #7.

    I certainly think if Green Bay could move down and pickup another 3rd rounder as well and still end up with Olsen it would be a good move. It depends whom is on the board I suppose. I believe Lynch is going to be a great back in the NFL so I wouldn't pass on him unless a tremendous deal came up. Looking at the order the Jets look like a good suitor to move down. Green Bay and NYJ could swap picks and Green Bay could pickup an additional 3rd rounder. The Jets have two 2nd round picks (one from Washington) so they could feel a late Day 1 pick is expandable.

    Draft experts disagree...saying he might be out of the top 15-20 now.

    yeah, I agree..only problem is that the Packers only have one first round draft pick and it's probably going to take two to get both guys. Olsen helped himself huge yesterday and Lynch will go in the 1st round.

    We wont get Calvin Johnson but he ran a 4.35 and weighs 239 pounds!
    Another WR we could look at possibly is Jason Hill who ran a 4.32

    Wow, what a showing for WR Robert Meachem. He ran a 4.36 40, and he was expected to run in the mid-4.4 range. We know he's got the other measurables too, so watch him in the ball catching drills. If he looks spectacular in those, we could have a new #2 WR, depending on the pro days of Jarrett and Ginn.

    Meachem looked near perfect in all of the catching drills, I was really impressed.

    Stanton's looking really impressive too. I'd say he's easily my #3 QB at this point.

    I'd say Meachem is the #2 WR coming out, because the commentators of the combine show said Jarrett recently ran a mid 4.7 40.

    Damn that is slow.

    the 40 is so overrated, i get sad that supposed smart fans put so much stock into it.
