Bobby Wagner heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Seahawks' picks: Round 2/47 - Bobby Wagner, MLB, 6-0, 241, Utah State...Wagner adds speed to the linebacker position and brings versatility, with the ability to play both inside and outside. He'll compete for the starting middle linebacker job left vacant by the departure of David Hawthorne in free agency. - The Sports Xchange
Robert Turbin heading into rJr season: Seattle wanted to get more speed on defense, and they achieved that by drafting the most pure pass rusher in the draft in West Virginia's Bruce Irvin at No. 15 overall. Irvin ran a blazing, 4.43 in the 40-yard dash at the combine and totaled 22.5 sacks during his two seasons at West Virginia. Coach Pete Carroll said he'll back up pass-rushing defensive end Chris Clemons, and play opposite him on third down. Carroll also drafted a quarterback for the first time since he's been in Seattle, selecting Wisconsin signal-caller Russell Wilson in the third round. The Seahawks like Wilson's skill set and leadership skills. And even though Seattle signed Matt Flynn to a multi-year deal in free agency, Wilson will get an opportunity to show how he fits into the quarterback competition with Flynn and Jackson once training camp begins in July. BEST PICK: Running back Robert Turbin: The Seahawks needed a backup running back to ease the load for Marshawn Lynch, and they get another bruising runner in Turbin. - The Sports Xchange
Maurice Alexander heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Rams' picks: Round 4/110 - Maurice Alexander, S, 6-1, 220, Utah State...Big hitter who will be playing in his hometown. Good size, and physical; is considered a good fit for coordinator Gregg Williams' defense. Should be a big contributor on special teams. - The Sports Xchange
Kerwynn Williams heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Colts' picks: Round 7/230 - Kerwynn Williams, RB/KR, 5-7, 196, Utah State...Speedy back who may end up returning punts and kickoffs for the Colts. Was an all-purpose back in college. Excels at running between the tackles. Shows good burst at the line of scrimmage. Was considered the best kickoff and punt returner remaining on the Colts' draft board. - The Sports Xchange
Curtis Marsh heading into Sr season: 2010: Started all 12 games of the 2010 season at cornerback, earning second-team all-WAC honors. He ranked second in the WAC and sixth in FBS in passes defended with 1.25 per game with 15 total on 13 pass break-ups and two interceptions. He had three pass break-ups in two different games, against BYU and Boise State, while logging two in the Idaho game. Marsh's 13 pass break-ups this season are a career-high, nearly tripling last year's total of five. Additionally, Marsh had 45 tackles (37 solo, eight assists) with one tackle for loss this season...2009: Played in all 12 games, making four starts... Tallied 32 total tackles (23 solo, nine assists) with five pass break-ups, one interception and one blocked kick...switched from running back to cornerback during spring of 2009...2008: Played in all 12 games at running back, making three starts...

Also had 16 catches for 96 yards (6.0 ypc), ranking fourth on team in receptions and first among tailbacks.
Nevin Lawson heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 4/133 - Nevin Lawson, CB, 5-10, 186, Utah State...The Lions traded their fourth round pick (111) to move up to get Van Noy and then watched eight cornerbacks go off the board before this pick. Still, they like Lawson's speed (4.5, though he plays faster, according to general manager Martin Mayhew) and his toughness. He is expected to compete with Bill Bentley for the nickel corner spot. - The Sports Xchange
Rob Myers heading into rSr season: 2007: 9 GP; 5 GS; Rec: 21-320-15.2-3; Missed time with a leg injury. Caught 21 passes for 320 yards on the season... His 15.2 yards per catch average led the nation's tight ends... Tallied three TD's on the season including two at New Mexico State as part of his career-best 117 yards on four catches with a career-long 37-yard reception...2006: 12 GP; 0 GS; Rec: 10-125-12.5-0; Battled back from a preseason groin injury to catch 10 passes for 125 yards on the year...

Did not record any statistics...2004: Redshirted his first year at USU.
Will Davis heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Dolphins' picks: Round 3/93 - Will Davis, CB, 5-11, 186, Utah State...The Dolphins traded into the back part of the third round to ensure they didn't miss out on another cornerback, and used that pick to draft Davis, a raw player who doesn't have much football experience but has risen up draft boards over the past year. Davis played at three different colleges, but had a great senior season with five interceptions. He will compete with Jamar Taylor and Nolan Carroll for the No. 3 and 4 cornerback spots. - The Sports Xchange
Michael Smith heading into rSr season: A closer look at the Buccaneers' picks: Round 7/212 - Michael Smith, RB, 5-9, 205, Utah State...With blazing speed from the running back position, Smith gives the Bucs exactly what they have lacked. He could become a third-down contributor and kick returner. COULD SURPRISE: Utah State running back Michael Smith: Gives them more speed on offense, which they sorely lack. And because he played behind a better running back in Robert Turbin, he didn't get the touches. But Smith had back-to-back 100-yard rushing games to end his career. - 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.
