Fifteen players worked out at the (Florida State) pro day, but many scouts and personnel men were there to watch DE/LB Everette Brown (6-1 7/8, 256 pounds). He turned in a 31-inch vertical leap and a 9-foot, 9-inch broad jump, but otherwise stood on his numbers from the NFL combine. Another player to keep an eye on is CB/KR Michael Ray Garvin (5-7 5/8, 174 pounds). Garvin, a world-class track speedster, turned in times of 4.24 and 4.28 in the 40-yard dash. For comparison, either one of those times would’ve been the fastest at the combine in Indianapolis, as Darrius Heyward-Bey had the best time at 4.30 seconds. Garvin also had a 36-inch vertical leap, a 10-foot, 8-inch broad jump and times of 4.34 in the short shuttle and 6.97 in the three-cone drill.

Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry, whose Scouting Combine performance last month sparked talk that he could be the first overall pick in the draft, will visit with the Lions on Sunday, according to the Detroit Free Press. "There’s a lot of pressure of being a No. 1 pick, and he’s definitely got the character and the ability to be able to handle that pressure," agent Andy Ross told Carlos Monarrez of the Free Press.

The Chiefs dropped out of the quarterback hunt when they traded for Matt Cassel. Now, Kansas City can go many directions with the No. 3-overall pick, but taking a quarterback will not be one of them. "It's the known versus the unknown," said Chiefs coach Todd Haley, explaining why the Chiefs traded for Cassel instead of drafting a quarterback. "You've seen a guy perform in the NFL. I think that's a big item."

Curry likely cemented his resume– and his ascending draft status — with an impressive performance Monday. All he did was finish first among linebackers in three of the first four drills tested — 40-yard dash (4.56), verticle jump (37.0) and broad jump (10′4″). He displayed his blend of size and speed during linebacker drills. ... Curry said his favorite part of the combine experience was having lunch with members of the Detroit Lions, who could make him the top overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. He said that experience — and the thought of being the top pick — motivated him as he competed in drills. "Just to know that they’re considering taking a linebacker No. 1 overall … just that whole thought process is amazing," Curry said. "I came out here today with that in the back of my head.

"Even though we’re three, we could be at 23," Pioli said Saturday at the NFL scouting combine. "Even though you’re at 23, you could be at three. The draft strategy is know the entire board, know all the players, know there might be opportunities to manipulate the draft board, moving up or down, and gain draft picks or give away draft picks to get veteran players. … The whole thing is very fluid.
