Escobar ran a 4.84, Eifert a 4.68, Ertz a 4.76, and McDonald a 4.69.
Escobar has been a player that I've liked & followed, but I was sure that he'd go R2 (or early R3)... and I feel that the Steelers should & would go OLB & S inn those rounds.
Him having a bad combine in good news (I do not care about the combine; the kid can play). Todd Haley talking to him is even better news.
I've said it several times, but it bears iteration: he is Aaron Hernandez. And, if you ask most defenders, Aaron is actually the more difficult TE to defend (not Gronk), despite what the stats say.
