Not very good for Oliver, but a late rounder for Patrick might be worth the pick since we have a few extra late round picks.

(12:01 AM): Times vary for Husker OL… No official results were announced from the on-campus workout earlier this of Nebraska OT Chris Patrick, who is one of several players who have applied for admission to next month’s NFL’s supplemental draft. As a result, there have been some divergent numbers reported from the workout. Patrick’s 40-time for example, has been reported as being anywhere from 5.1 to 5.3 which is a pretty significant difference. The overall consensus of Patrick’s workout, though, appears to have been reasonably positive. Patrick, who was the Huskers starting LT last fall measured in at 6-4, 296; he did 31 reps bench-pressing 225 pounds, and turned in a 27-inch vertical leap. While Patrick played OT at Nebraska, he likely projects to OG in the NFL because of his size. And those numbers would have put in the top half of the OGs at this year’s combine. For example, even if Patrick’s 40 time was in the low 5.3 range, that still would have been 6th out of 13 OGs who ran in Indianapolis. At least 11 teams reportedly attended Patrick’s workout including Baltimore, Kansas City, Atlanta Philadelphia, the Giants, New England, Minnesota, Oakland, Green Bay, Tampa Bay and New Orleans. The supplemental draft is tentatively scheduled for July 13th.

(12:01 AM): Dawgs’ CB has dog of a pre-draft workout… According to a report by Len Pasquarelli over at ESPN Georgia CB Paul Oliver did not have a very impressive outing when he worked out in front of over two dozen NFL scouts and personnel people prior to next month’s supplemental draft. Oliver, who been listed at over 6 feet and almost 210 pounds by the school, actually measured in at just 5-10.5 and 195 pounds. Worse for Oliver, he only ran in the mid-to-high 4.5 range for the 40, with at least one team reportedly timing in over 4.6 seconds. Oliver also didn’t score all that well in some of the other tests posting just a 33-inch vertical leap and a 3-cond drill time of over 7.3 seconds. For the record, that time in the 3-cone drill would have been the second worst among CBs at this year’s scouting combine, while the vertical leap would also have been in the lower third of combine participants at the position. Prior to the workout, Oliver had been graded in the second round area but that is likely to drop. Oliver had considered entering the regular 2007 draft as an underclassmen but ultimately opted to return to school, however, he was later declared academically ineligible for the upcoming season and applied for entry in the supplemental draft. Any team that selects a player in the supplemental draft will forfeit its corresponding choice in the 2008 draft.

I wasn't too upset when Patrick left Nebraska. He was part of our problem on the offensive line. I'm more excited about the younger players who will replace him.

He wasn't part of the problem, he bulked up to fill holes left by Soliches piss poor recruiting.

He did an ok job, but won't be an NFL player.

I think the Chiefs need to jump on Oliver. They didn't draft a CB this year and Oliver could make up for that. He fits the Tampa Two defence best, which as you all know is what we run. He has great talent and probaly would have been a late first day pick if he had entered the draft, and would have a very good chance of being drafted in the 1st round next year. I say we nab him in the 3rd round, because I doubt he is there in the 4th, but if he is we DEFINATLY have to grab him then. Ty Law and Patrick Surtain would be great mentors for him this year and if one were to go down I would rather Paul Oliver start than Benny Sapp or Marcus Maxey. I honesty do think Maxey could be good, but definatly not as good as Oliver.
