Mizzou had a little contest for fan engagement during halftime of their spring game. Defensive back DeMarkus Acy got in his stance to run a 40-yard dash, while four Missouri students did the same with a seven-yard head start.

Adam Humphries Youth Jersey The student said his name was Jevon White, and he was brief when told by a reporter that he outran Acy.

Yeah … I thought he was gonna come up on me, but i just ran. Having swung and missed at draft gems like Holloway and Love the year before, Belichick and Co. moved up to grab their tight end of the future, Daniel Graham. Graham was a solid athlete whose breakout senior season at Colorado helped him rise up draft boards. To acquire him with the 21st pick, the Patriots gave up the 32nd (Patrick Ramsey), 96th (Dorsett Davis, later traded), and 234th (Greg Scott) selections. This would have been a windfall for Washington had it not spent those selections on a garbage plate headlined by Ramsey.

Despite Acys claimed 40 time of 4.42 as a high school athlete (and with the understanding that Acy was in pads) he gets beat by the fellow Mizzou student who can really fly. Acy certainly closed the gap, but White had about three yards on him by the time they got to the goal line.

White said he had experience as a track runner and it really showed. Maybe the Tigers can get him to suit up on Saturdays.
