FSU CB Cromartie

Postby Steve-O » Fri Mar 17, 2006 1:39 am

Cromartie (6-2¼, 203) ran 4.39 and 4.37 in the 40, 3.89 in the short shuttle and 7.03 in the three-cone drill. He also had a 32-inch vertical jump.

not bad numbers aside from the verticle...that's a good shuttle and a really fast 40 though...

perhaps he might live up to the hype..the coaches did compare him to none other than "Primetime"

Hey, this is from kffl.com, and it says he had a 42-inch vertical jump not 32. Not sure which is right, but this would sound better for him at least.

NCAA | Cromartie has strong showing at Pro Day

Jim Lamar, of the Palm Beach Post, reports Florida State CB Antonio Cromartie dazzled NFL scouts at his Pro Day workout Thursday, March 16. Cromartie, who did not play during his junior season because of a knee injury, ran times of 4.36 and 4.41 seconds in the 40-yard dash. Cromartie also turned in a 42-inch vertical jump. At least four NFL head coaches attended the session — Tom Coughlin (Giants), Romeo Crennel (Browns), Lovie Smith (Bears) and Scott Linehan (Rams).

Many experts had Cromartie as the #1 CB prospect entering this season before his injury. He and Williams are in a similar boat, matching size and athleticism. I'm not sure this Pro Day has landed Cromartie atop the draft class, but I think on many boards he'll be the #3 corner, and others he'll probably be no lower than #5. So that probably puts him as a mid 1st rounder on some team's boards or a early to mid 2nd rounder on others.

Is it me, or is a bit fishy that the slowest CB that is getting 1st round grades ran a 4.4 this year. Either this is the fastest CB class in history or these Combine camps are really starting to see results in their traninig.
