Stock Watch - Pro Day movers

Impressive Pro Day's have a number of players flying up draft boards.

At Central Michigan's Pro Day, tackle Joe Staley put up a 4.8 in the 40-yard dash, a 32-inch vertical jump, and a 9-foot-9 broad jump. His stock has been soaring ever since. He looks to be a first round lock and top 15 is a possibility.

Amobi Okoye, at 305 pounds, ran a 4.85 40 yard dash during his Pro Day and sees his stock continue to rise. He now could go in the top ten.

Houston running back Jackie Battle has emerged as a sleeper candidate after an excellent Pro Day. At 6-2 and 235 pounds, Battle ran a 4.42 40 yard dash, a 41-inch vertical jump, 10-foot-11 long jump, 4.11 short shuttle, 6.51 three-cone drill and 19 bench press reps. He also impressed scouts with his receiving ability.

there are so many more movers than just those three like Paul Posluszny, Darrelle Revis, Garett Wolfe, Reggie Nelson and Patrick Willis. there pro days were all impresive. I belive that all of there stocks have rose to another level or in some casses stopped the bleeding, like for Reggie Nelson and Darrelle Revis who did not show great speed at the combine but at there pro days were just great so have rose to there real potential. As the second best player at there positions.

But for every gainer there is a loser and alan Branch was on that list. there are others though most of witch are the guys who had unimpresive combines and then decided not to work out at there pro day's like marshawn Lynch, and Sidney Rice. Well and then there is Lawrence Timmons who was suppose to have a great work out and didn't so he is falling fast on most draft. And last but not least Dwayne Jarrett he ran a 4.62 40 if he was going to be that slow why didn't he at least work at the combine. If he had he at least would have looked a little better than waiting for a more favorable pro day workout.
