kentjett Posted April 7, 2009 Report Share Posted April 7, 2009 I heard a lot of people claim that Rivers was a reach and he was the third best LB for USC. I've watched the combine, looked at tape, compared numbers and realized that Rivers would be the clear-cut #2 LB in this draft. Rivers ran in between a 4.51 and 4.58 forty, had a high jump of 42 1/2", 10' 7" long jump and 24 reps in the bench press. Rivers and Curry would be right w/ each other. They both do everything good and haven't been in many situations to rush the passer so that verdict is still out. Curry had a 4.56 forty, 37" high jump, 10' 4" long jump, and 25 reps in the bench press. Rivers would have been #1 in every category besides bench and he would have been in the top ten in that category. I don't think there is any way anybody would draft Ray, Cushing or Mathews over Rivers. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
