    I want this guy ........ even if the Chargers keep Turner for one year, this will be his replacement. Until this workout, he was "slotted" into the second day. He might not last until our first 3rd round pick. If he does, AJ needs to grab him.

    Link to YouTube Jackie Battle (RB - Houston) highlights, including his Pro Day workout.

    Jackie Battle results from his

    Dates: 04/11/07 03/23/07
    Height: 6017
    Weight: 235
    40 Yrd Dash: 4.42
    20 Yrd Dash: 2.55
    10 Yrd Dash: 1.52

    225 Lb. Bench Reps: 19
    Vertical Jump: 41
    Broad Jump: 10'11"
    20 Yrd Shuttle: 4.11
    3-Cone Drill: 6.54

    40 - SS = .31

    Kirwan P/E = 70 ..... (one inch shy of a 71)

    Compare short shuttle, 40's and 3 cones to some other players:

    Adrian Peterson

    40 = 4.40
    SS = 4.40
    3C = 7.09

    Brian Leonard

    40 = 4.52
    SS = 4.22
    3C = 6.88

    Marshawn Lynch

    40 = 4.46
    SS = 4.58 (not good)
    3C = 7.09

    Tony Hunt

    40 = 4.68
    SS = 4.72
    3C = 7.39


    Battle is quicker, faster and stronger than all of those guys. Those numbers are going to get scouts and GM's relooking at his tapes, because he tests out better than most (if not all) RB's. Maybe the NFL people already had him high, but playing at a C-USA school isn't a premier spot, and the "draftniks" tend to downgrade the smaller school players, while overrating BCS school players. with the power to punch it into the endzone.

    I'm surprised Adrian Peterson didn't test better, as he sure plays better than his overall numbers.

    Tony Hunt belongs down with Fresno State's Dwayne Wright, in the second day, not up high where I've seen many people slot him.
