Not missing much

If you don't have DirecTV you didn't miss much of JaMarcus Russell at the NFL Scouting Combine on Sunday. The NFL Network had plenty of shots of Russell - talking to fellow prospects. But the LSU quarterback didn't work out today.

Several state prospects did, though.

Tech's Jonathan Holland ran a 4.45 40-yard dash and had a 35 1-2 vertical jump. LSU's Craig Davis ran a 4.46 and Dwayne Bowe ran a 4.4 40 as well.

The best story of the day belonged to Georgia Tech's Calvin Johnson. Johnson came to the Combine but didn't plan on running the 40-yard dash. But when Johnson saw the scouts and coaches, well he had to run.

So he borrowed some running shoes from East Carolina quarterback James Pinkney - and then ran a 4.3 40.

You can pencil Johnson as an early first-round draft guy.
