good bit on ESPN about him and the draft pundits liking what they see.
i posted a month or two ago my feelings on orwin. if he continues the trend he's started with his all-star game and has great combine/pro day numbers i expect a team to definitely draft him. there's quite a bit of versatility with his skill set. all he needs is a chance to prove it. and, STAY healthy!
Orwin will make a pro roster, regardless of where he is drafted. He has PRO written all over him. He has a knack for making plays but he is also a very reliable and versatile back / receiver. He is very low risk for NFL teams. He won't go high, but he will stick.
I hope you're right, Boomer. I always really liked him and his attitude.
He probably still needs to develop some patience and vision when running between the tackles. But I'd think he's immediately useful as a swing out guy, or a guy who can motion out of, or into, the gun and contribute in both the running and passing game.
He's probably going to be in... 4.5 or 4.4 range? when he gets timed a Combine-style 40 in. That'll match up nicely with other running backs. 4.2s and 4.3s are pretty rare, especially for guys not named Holliday, Ford, or Spiller.
Orwin's definitely got 4.4 speed, and with some combine coaching he might be able to run a high 4.3 on the big day... He seems like a potential "sleeper" prospect who's stock is gonna shoot up like Hill's after the combine and pro day...
I really don't see Orwin as a 4.4 guy, but I hope you are right. My guess, if he gets in the 4.4s, it will be 4.49ish. There are a lot of really good NFL skill position guys with nothing more than 4.6 speed. Did you guys see Anquan Bolden this year? It will be interesting to see where his combine times end up if he is invited. In any case, he will get a pro day. My money is somewhere between 4.50 and 4.55, which is still pretty good. The kid is a baller, that is what counts.
Sweeting getting some attention too

Rod Sweeting, cornerback, Georgia Tech - Sweeting has had a very strong week, showing the ability to be a man cover corner at the next level. He has been praised constantly by the coaches and could end up as a third round pick.
