    Clock issues continue: Hargreaves who was originally credited with a 4.52 has now been credited with a 4.41 unofficial time which is obviously a much better time for him.

    That's not what you expect from the combine. Sounds fishy...Does anyone know if Hargreaves has any ties to Israel?

    That's a HUGE difference. I wonder what the reason was. I didn't see him run. Was the machine just wonky? 4.41 is more in line with a pretty good number for a CB, rather than the "slow" label he was carrying. I'm sure his pro day will be the end all either way.

    Dude has a thick body who is fast with great feet...just like revis...

    Do I think he will be better than the hall of famer revis?, I don't think so but he's gonna be real good.

    Folks totally underate how strong he is...I've heard some criticize his tackling ability which I think is bologna sandwiches.

    He's the best overall corner in the draft. The cons are that he has trouble with tall receivers and he lacks top end speed. He's a coveted piece of the puzzle if you believe Tannenbaum when he says he models his ideal defense with two strong corners. If he's there, Tannenbaum will take him.

    I'm one of those guys who likes Hargreaves and Alexander, but regardless Hargreaves is an excellent CB. Plays smart, physical, quick, fast, can stick with receivers givng very little separation. Complete, all around CB. And as to the tackling, from what I've seen he's a willing and physical tackler on the boundary/containing running plays, and that'll be important to NFL scouts. His tackling/run defense as a CB is a plus, I'd dismiss that criticism as well.

    I think that he's the most likely guy to be our pick at #8. But odds are that one of the top 5 defenders is going to be, so we'll get an instant starter on that side of the ball unless we really mess things up.
