Danny Shelton heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Browns' 12 picks: Round 1/12 - Danny Shelton, NT, 6-3, 339, Washington...The Browns passed on drafting a pass rusher and a wide receiver to get help for their anemic run defense. Shelton was durable in college; he played in 52 straight games at Washington over four seasons. The Browns are looking at him as a three-down player, but his biggest value is as a run defender alongside Phil Taylor and Armonty Bryant. - The Sports Xchange
*Bishop Sankey heading into Jr season: A closer look at the Titans' picks: Round 2/54 - Bishop Sankey, RB, 5-10, 210, Washington...Tennessee traded back 12 spots and still managed to get the running back of their choice in Sankey. Sankey's versatility as a pass catcher, a blocker and a runner made him the preferred choice over Tre Mason, who had no real track record as a pass catcher, or Carlos Hyde, who is a similar type back to Shonn Greene. - The Sports Xchange
*Austin Seferian-Jenkins heading into Jr season: 2014 NFL DRAFT BEST VALUE PICK: TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS: Round 2/38 -- Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, 6-5, 260, Washington...Seferian-Jenkins was the second tight end off the board, and the Bucs had a top-20 grade on him.

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.
