The NFL Scouting Combine continued today with the quarterbacks, and the wide receivers. I don’t think the Patriots will focus in on either of these groups, but anything is possible come draft day, so here a few notable 40 times, from each group.

Wide Receivers

Brandin Cooks, Oregon State-4.33

Odell Beckham, LSU-4.43

Sammy Watkins, Clemson-4.43

Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt-4.46

Marqise Lee, USC-4.52

Mike Evans, Texas A&M-4.53

Quarterbacks

Logan Thomas, Virginia Tech-4.61

Stephen Morris, Miami-4.63

Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M-4.68

Derek Carr, Fresno State-4.69

Blake Bortles, Central Florida-4.93

A.J. McCarron, Alabama-4.94

I was extremely impressed with LSU’s Odell Beckham, not only with his 40 time, but with his overall performance. I don’t think he will get out of the first round come May, and he has the potential to be a productive receiver in the NFL.

Of all of these prospects, I think McCarron would be the guy with the highest chance of landing in Foxboro. He has expressed his admiration for Tom Brady, as well as the whole organization, and getting a jump on acquiring Brady’s successor would not be a bad idea for Bill Belichick and company.
