*Lorenzo Doss heading into Jr season: A closer look at the Broncos' nine picks: Round 5/164 -- Lorenzo Doss, CB, 5-10, 182, Tulane...Doss turned pro with one year of eligibility remaining after intercepting 15 passes during three seasons at Tulane in which he started all but three games. The Broncos' cornerback depth means that he will only see extensive playing time if a wave of injuries hit, but he could compete with Kayvon Webster to be the No. 4 cornerback. - 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.

"The best draft information out there, period!"
"The Draft Scout team works hard. You'll be amazed by the amount of info. Plus, not alot of people know this but they think they fly under the radar here. They don't. They are the major players in college player info distribution. Look around all the major websites (not the mom & pop draft sites) on the net. It's them doing it!"
"I bet you guys save agents a TON of money. If not, they might as well lay off their own research guys, you guys are it!"
"A never ending virtual book of non-stop, year-round college football greatness. Just to see the players rated together and moving around during the season, then the post season player draft reports are books of their own. Well worth the 25 bucks a year, and then some!"
"I belong to a few premium draft sites but I always visit yours first. In fact, many times a day. Thanks for the great service!"
"You guys are Pros and it shows. We look forward to working with you much more in the future."
