    They should be wrapping up fairly soon? They started around 9am. I asked Ringo to provide updates as to how the guys did, he hasn't responded, maybe he's in KC?

    AM at rivals posted on twitter that, "Scotty McKnight looked phenomenal running routes and catching passes at #cubuffs Pro Timing Day; no drops. He ran forty in the 4.4 range." He also caught passes from Dirty Sanchez

    If true that puts him .10 faster than Wes Welker...

    Listed as 2 inches taller and the same weight too.

    Be really cool if Scotty gets drafted. You can't argue with the production, so if the measurables are there it makes sense to take a flyer on him with a later round pick.

    If 4.45, 5'11" and 190 all bear out you'd expect to see something for him. any idea how many scouts were here? and where Jalil, jimmy, and Nate present?

    He might have just got himself drafted. But he might even want to be an UFA so he can pick his team

    The Y-E-T-S may see the chemistry between Sanchez and Scotty and invest in that tandem.

    I wasn't there, so I don't know. Everything I've seen online is about a 24 hour delay before pro day results get posted.

    Wouldn't even be much of an investment as a late round/ Free agent pick up. Jets scouts were confirmed to be in attendance, but that might also be because they wanted to see what Sanchez has to offer. lol

    Good luck at the next level Scotty. With those numbers you just earned a shot at it.

    4.46 - 4.48 for Scotty.

    http://www.denverpost.com/cu/ci_17573760

    I'm shocked. I was hoping for a sub-4.6 and wasn't confident he'd post that. Where was this speed the past 4 years? Did we use him wrong? Should he have been returning punts?

    Those times with his size and route running should get him some action on draft day. I would not have thought he would go sub 4.5

    CJ/Klatt were saying that one of the CU coaches (unnamed, but might have been Cabral), said "We didn't know he could run that fast because he always had to stop running to catch the ball."

    I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of our players are a lot better/faster than we all thought with the awesome coaching we've had the last 5 years.

    Wall of Winner from the spring of 2009 had Espinoza as our 3rd fastest WR at 4.77 seconds. McKnight was not one of the top two.

    Congrats to him for putting in the work to improve. But that's a huge jump, folks. I think I'm right to be shocked.

    with proper training with specialists in advance of the run, a good athlete can shave significant time. i am not that shocked--- i suspect he's been working very hard for this moment.

    Thank you Pittman. You made our players so so SO much slower.

    There were reports. Who really knows? But the fact remains there wasn't a single indication (previous timed results or on-field performance) that led me to believe that Scotty ran anything close to a 4.4 forty.

    I was never a fan of Pittman, but at the same time you cannot compare what our guys do after they are done with football and are in preparation for the combine/pro days. I doubt Scotty was watching his intake as well as training for events while he was a study; late nights and/or partying can wreak havoc on your body. Once you start specializing in various "events" you can get a lot better at them. Just the way our bodies work.

    That being said, Nate's bench press of 21 reps is more of an indication of Pittman, since you can't expect drastic improvements in months on a compound lift.
