Jerome Harrison

Postby dirtybirdnw » Mon Feb 27, 2006 5:30 pm

My personal heir apparent for one Warrick Dunn is Washington State RB Jerome Harrison. The Falcons web site posted his 40 time this weekend and it's on par with a good run IMO:

NCAA | Harrison runs a 4.47

Michael Odom, of AtlantaFalcons.com, reports Washington State RB Jerome Harrison ran a 4.47 in his 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.


Other notes Maurice Drew ran a 4.39 in the combine making him the fastest in the combine thus far. Might make a good return man.

I like Drew as our heir apparent to Dunn. He's small, measuring in at 5-7/207, but frankly, I think Dunn shows that a lack of height is really is a non-factor for this team. With Tom Cable, I think Drew would transition a bit more quickly than another back, because he would be entering an offense similar to the one used at UCLA (Cable is after all a Mooch disciple, just like Knapp).

I think Drew in Round 3 or 4 would be a great pick.

I think Drew could be had as late as the 5th round. I think the height factor will scare most teams away and really drop him in the draft. Even despite good 40 times and anything else he does in the combine.
