Combine losers - offense

We've had a lot of coverage on the combine winners so far - Calvin Johnson, Joe Thomas, Adrian Peterson, Drew Stanton, Brian Leonard, Greg Olsen, to name a few. But who are the players that aren't performing?

Gary Russell couldn't have had a worse combine. He showed up out of shape and turned in one of the worst 40-times for a RB in recent memory - 4.84. He also managed just 9 reps on the 225 bench!

Zach Miller looked more like an offensive lineman running his 40-yard dash at a slow 4.84. Then he displayed the hands of a lineman, dropping numerous passes during the drills. To make matters worse, Greg Olsen wowed everyone with a 4.5 40-time.

Johnnie Lee Higgins spent two days telling everyone he would run a sub 4.2 40-time and break all the combine records. He then went out and ran a 4.48. While not a bad time, it certainly didn't live up to the hype and was no where near the top receivers at the combine.

Dwayne Jarrett, Brady Quinn, JaMarcus Russell, Tony Hunt and all the other players who choose to watch the drills instead of participate. NFL personal want players who are willing to put it all on the line.

Scouts want you to lay it ALL on the line.Then why does the combine committee allow or invite players who are just going to walk around and look good for the national media. I have a kid who is a fullback at Virginia Tech that would have destroyed the fullback stats that were put up yet,they wouldnt invite him. They invited him to the Shrine game but he wasnt good enough for the combine. Yet, I see his competition choose not to perform in certain events. I AGREE if your not gonna put it all on the line, let others compete. Parcels would have run it show boats :) !!
