Quinten Jammer Proves His Worth

CB Quinten Jammer made a big statement Wednesday afternoon in Austin, TX. Jammer proved to all the experts that he indeed is ready to be a primetime cornerback in the NFL by running a 4.38 in the 40-yard dash.

Lets face it, the only real concern the Cowboys' have had about taking CB Quinten Jammer out of Texas with the #6 pick in the draft is his pure speed.

Looks like Jerry Jones and company won't have to worry about that anymore. Jammer stunned everyone in attendance at the University of Texas Pro Timing Day Wednesday afternoon by running a 4.38 40-yard dash. He also did 18 reps on the bench at the standard 225 pounds, and jumped almost 38 inches in the vertical jump.

And while alot of scouts continue to compare Jammer with Phillip Buchanon out of Miami, it seems now that he has clearly separated himself from the rest of the pack.

"I think I had a pretty good day today, I answered some questions," the 6'1, 205 lb Jammer said. "I could've got a better start (40-yard dash), but I know the most important thing is what I do on the field."

In fact, Jammer was so impressive in his workout, that he may have actually propelled himself above the number six pick, which could force the Cowboys to consider other moves- like trading down.

Dave Campo and several other scouts are expected to work out Jammer in a personal visit sometime within the next two weeks. He is also one of 11 prospects invited to attend the Cowboys' pre-draft visit at Valley Ranch on April 12.
