More Homerism and Tidbits from Texas Pro Day

First of all, huge Browns fan by birth and Texas Longhorn fan by wallet - sent a lot of money to the University over the years.    Here are some of the inside comments that link the Horns and Browns together:

  • Earl Thomas official time was 4.37 and he tweaked a hammy and that was his complete effort for the Pro-Day.  That happens to me as well when I run in the 4.3s.
  • Colt McCoy pitched a no-hitter.  He actually went 55-55 on completions on the assigned throws.   He was elated with the performance - but I did not here any feedback from evaluators.  He cemented the perception that he is ridiculously accurate, but his big question will be on arm strength.  If he proved that - Browns would have no hope of securing him in 3rd round.
  • Coach Mangini was spotted personally at that work out.  He spent the entire time with Coach Mack Brown and was in constant conversation.  The only other coach spotted in conversation with Mack was Pete Carrol of the Seahawks.  Interesting given proximity of picks.
  • Jordan Shipley helped his case - running a low of 4.48 but a high of 4.55 on his efforts.  He had a tweak in the NFL combine - so this was his first healthy effort.  I am not sure we would have much interest anyway, but my guess is he is working his way out of the 3rd round.

So what does it all mean?  If you were worried about Joe Haden's speed - you may just slot Earl ahead of him.  Is Colt McCoy a smokescreen?   If not - I believe the Browns would have to think 2nd rounder instead of 3rd.  There was probably at least a 50% shot he would last in 3rd prior to this workout.  Hook em Browns!!
