Combine talk

Just some tidbits from the NFL Scouting Combine on NFL Network.

For some reason, maybe it's because he's smaller, I always thought Felix Jones was the faster of the two running backs at Arkansas. It turns out I'm wrong. Darren McFadden ran a 4.33 40-yard dash. Jones turned in a time of 4.47.

Tulane running back Matt Forte may have boosted his stock with an impressive time of 4.46, faster than that of Jones.

For what it's worth, USC quarterback John David Booty ran a 4.82. I say what it's worth because Booty is a drop-back quarterback and won't need to win any foot races in the NFL. Booty will need to be able slide around the pocket more than he'll need to win any north-south races.

Jacob Hester has gotten a lot of attention from Chicago area media. Several media outlets are running with Hester's story of wanting to switch jerseys with Devin Hester after LSU and Miami played in the Peach Bowl. The postgame brawl negated that fact.

LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey's knee has become the center of much speculation. My thought,the guy never missed a game. Isn't that enough?
