    I don't see why Cody Core can't be that guy. Of course if another option falls to us in the draft, I'd be fine with that.

      Core runs an average 4.47 40 yd dash. Not slow, but not elite.

          After seeing Williams last night, I wouldn't be upset at all if we took him with our pick. Great skill set at WR.....

            Sadly he reminds me a lot of the kid from OSU that the Jets drafted a couple years ago, Devin Smith, who hasn't lived up to expectations.

            Out of anyone in that game last night, the guy I would want is OJ Howard, but the Bengals already have enough TEs.

              The beef is that 4.47 and 4.5 are required/average speed for wide receivers. Calvin Johnson ran a 4.35 40 yd dash, Randy Moss ran a 4.25 40 yd dash, and Julio Junes runs a 4.39. AJ Green is a great all-around WR with amazing hands and body control who will burn you deep. But he is not a true "burner" like the other guys. Jerry Rice ran a 4.6 or 4.7, Jerry was a route runner and caught everything that came his way in a west coast timing offense.

              You just cannot coach speed. As fictional character Mickey Goldmill once said "We need speed. Speed's what we need. Greasy, fast speed!" ..... Well, speed and the ability to play: see Mario Alford.

                those low times are fake numbers , run by a track trained and coached player in shorts, track shoes, totally rested and in best possible conditions.

                  I'm all for a burner. If we can grab one in April, do it. But I do think CC can stretch the field like M Jones did. CC's weakness is route running and that CAN be coached.

                  I don't think Mike Williams will run an impressive 40 time at the combine and he'll arguably be the first WR taken
