Now we sit and wait. We sit and wait till the next milestone comes up. We have to look at the possible free agent pick ups and then we will get back at looking at some of these possible draft picks all over again.
Leon McFadden walked into fall football camp in 2009 at San Diego State University looking to make an immediate impact as a freshman.
The two-star wide receiver from St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, Calif. had no idea that by the end of camp, he would be on the other side of the ball: covering wide receivers instead of catching passes from the quarterback.
1. Offensive Line Looks Strong –The position group that impressed me the most was the one that showcased on the very first day of testing. Coming into the combine, I kept hearing that this year’s crop of offensive linemen was impressive. From what I saw they certainly lived up to the bill. On the whole, they tested through the roof and looked good in drills. Many of the top names heading into the combine impressed, including Texas A&M’s Luke Joeckel, Oklahoma’s Lane Johnson, Central Michigan’s Eric Fisher, Alabama’s Chance Warmack and North Carolina’s Jonathan Cooper. Of those players, I think Johnson improved his stock the most, displaying tremendous athleticism and quickness. Meanwhile, as far as relatively unknown prospects go, Arkansas-Pine Bluff’s Terron Armstead caught everyone’s attention by running a 4.71 40-yard dash.
