Found February 27, 2012 on NorthWest Sports Beat:
PLAYERS: LaMichael James
TEAMS: Oregon Ducks
Former Oregon running back LaMichael James ran an unofficial time of 4.37 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine Sunday in Indianapolis.

He ran a 4.37 again on his second attempt. His time is the fastest among the first group of running backs working out today.

James has been projected by many as a second-round, or third-round pick in this year's draft.

Running a sub-4.40 electronic 40 time should lock him into that range. But again, the 4.37 was unofficial.

Oregon NCAAF Recruiting Class – Where do the Ducks Rank?

Fastest 40 Yard Dash Times for Running Backs

It was no secret that the 2012 NFL Draft was lacking marque running backs, and that was emphasized when the backs invited to this year's NFL Combine took the field, and put up some less than impressive times.  While No.1 overall running back Trent Richards sat out of activities it was the perfect opportunity for someone else to step up and make a name for themselves.  That...

Looking Ahead to 2013: Tight End

Last season, the depth at the tight end position took an early hit with the injury retirement of Brandon Williams and the subsequent Achilles injury to Curtis White. That left the Ducks with just two healthy tight ends. In our continuing look at the 2013 recruiting needs for the Oregon Ducks, today Duck Sports Authority turns its attention to the often unsung heroes of the Oregon...

NFL Scouting Combine Report-Day Two

 I am typically a stream of consciousness kind of guy.  I see something and I comment on it.  Thanks to Twitter I can now share these ramblings with the world in real time.  But even I have limits.  The NFL Scouting Combine is that limit.  First off, I don’t watch it live.  I can appreciate anyone who can, but my weekends revolve around my family and not sitting for...
