Quentin Griffin also looked good running and catching the ball. An explosive little back, he displayed great footwork in all the drills, immediately cutting it back through the cones and missing the tackling dummies. He also caught the ball well.
LSU's Domanick Davis ran a little slower than expected but was sensational catching the ball and looked like a natural receiver with strong/soft hands.
Stanford's Kerry Carter displayed surprising speed for the stopwatch and during the drill segment. He does not move like a 230+ pound back.
The best fullback far and away was Chris Davis of Syracuse. A terrific athlete, Davis drilled fast, caught the ball well and was lying out, diving for receptions all day. He displayed a lot of tools to work with.
Nick Maddox is more quick than fast, offering excellent footwork and having a solid overall session.
For as slow as he runs, Jeremi Johnson can really play when he puts his mind to it. Athletic, the big fullback effectively caught the ball in drills and really moves around the field nicely. Too bad he wastes his talent.
Several did not fare as well.
Brandon Drumm worked hard but is a marginal athlete with no speed and hands of stone.
Ovie Mughelli made a bad choice by not running (he was booed yet again) and possibly a worse choice by taking part in the drills. His hands were terrible and he lacked any balance when used as a pass receiver.
Derek Watson did not run with great balance nor does he show the great footwork. He also plays a little slow but to his credit did a fine job catching the ball. We spoke with him at length on Thursday and actually found him to be a polite young man.
A few final note: Earnest Graham missed the combine after having surgery on his small right toe and many in attendance doubt Ahmaad Galloway will return as the MRI results on his injured knee with torn ACL and MCL ligaments were not favorable.
