Tavon Austin heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Rams' picks: Round 1/8 - Tavon Austin, WR/KR, 5-9, 174, West Virginia...The Rams gave up a second-round pick to move up eight spots and take arguably the best playmaker in the draft. Austin will play in the spot, lineup at running, return kicks, and who knows what else. QUOTE TO NOTE: "That's something I can't change. I just laugh at it now. Not really laugh, but I just smile and take it in and put it on my shoulders. I've been small my whole life. It's not going to change. I'm 5-9, but my heart plays like I'm six feet. I try to keep that mindset, keep being smart on the field, knowing when to get down, knowing when not to get down, get the first down. That's really what it boils down to." - WR Tavon Austin on his size. - The Sports Xchange
Geno Smith heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Jets' picks: Round 2/39 -- Geno Smith, QB, 6-3, 218, West Virginia...One way or the other, he'll likely be the defining pick of the John Idzik Era. Jets were thrilled he fell from a potential No. 1 overall pick all the way into their laps in the second round, but is it a good idea to draft a quarterback when the head coach is very likely entering a lame-duck season? Smith's struggles in the second half of his senior season - and in the wintry conditions of the Pinstripe Bowl, located just a few miles from MetLife Stadium - are cause for concern, but his upside was too good to pass up. May not be an immediate starter, but Mark Sanchez's days in green and white are surely numbered. - The Sports Xchange
Kevin White heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Bears' six picks: Round 1/7 -- Kevin White, WR, 6-3, 215, West Virginia...A replacement for Brandon Marshall, his 4.35-second 40-yard dash speed makes him the lid-lifting receiver the Bears have lacked when defenses cheated up in tighter zone or man coverage. He's athletic enough to go up for the ball, but played only two years in an offense that left him a lot of leeway in terms of running tight routes. So he'll have to prove he can be a more precise route runner. A breakaway threat because of his speed, he isn't known for owning flashy downfield moves. - The Sports Xchange

NFLDraftScout.com uses the best verifiable 40-yard time for each player. There is no single, official 40-yard time for any player, even those who run at the Indianapolis Combine. Those players who participate in the 40 yards at the Combine actually run twice and on each run they are timed by two hand-held stopwatches and one electronic timer (that is actually initiated by hand on the player's first movement). Combine data includes all six of those times for each player, but no single official time. Team scouts and coaches have various approaches for getting the 40 time they use from those six timings. Some use averages. Some throw out slowest and fastest and then average the rest. In deference to each player, NFLDraftScout.com attempts to use the best verifiable time that seems appropriate for each player. That is the 40 time we post.
