We knew Oregon Ducks DE Dion Jordan was athletic, but Monday we learned that he is a freak of nature.

Winner: Oregon Ducks DE Dion Jordan

The 6’6″, 248 pound Jordan dashed for a 4.6 40-yard dash, which is astonishing for his frame. Jordan is an athletic speed rusher, however, in the NFL he may transition to the outside linebacker position. Anyhow, Jordan is flying up draft boards.

Winner: BYU Cougars DE Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah

Ansah did not play football until arriving at Brigham Young University. He is from Uganda and continues to display his flawless athleticism. He ran a 4.63 40, and had a 34.5 inch vertical leap.

Loser: Notre Dame LB Manti Te’o

Te’o ran a 4.82 40-yard dash, which is nauseating for a linebacker. He needs to clear his mind and get back to focusing on football, not the Lennay Kekua mishap. Te’o needs to have a strong Pro Day if he wants to be a Top 20 pick.

In other news, QB Tom Brady received a three-year extension from the New England Patriots.

  1. What about Sam Montgomery?? During one of his interviews he said that he did not try in some of his games. If I were a scout/coach that would worry me very much.
