James who ran the 40 in 4.45 seconds at the combine, ran 4.29 and 4.36 at the Oregon Pro-day, the agreed upon 40 was 4.41 by NFL scouts. link
It's telling because it could show a strong interest from the Bengals in these Oregon prospects. With the Bengals in need of speed and big-play ability out of the running back position, it's possible that Lewis wanted to get a closeup look at LaMichael James. Viewed as a second to fourth round pick, James could be a great supplemental back in the committee approach--especially if the Bengals bring a bigger back like Michael Bush in via free agency. Link
Rob RangAlong with scouts from "virtually every team," source tells me head coaches Marvin Lewis and Jim Schwartz attended Oregon Pro Day.
Where does a 5'9 195 lb football player fit in the NFL? with 4.4 speed and good hands? Do we have a Slot WR?
Impression: A quick footed, fluid scat back who doesn't break many tackles, but has the ability to make NFL defender miss and accelerate quickly toward daylight. Will be limited inside, but as a 3rd down/special teams type option I think he can be a better NFL runner than Falcons 5th round pick Jacquizz Rodgers because of his ability to make defenders miss consistently. from Nationalfootballpost
