Packer Related: Monday Combine News, Defensive Line and Linebackers

A couple of mid-round linebackers led the way with their 40 times. I was interested to see how Michigan DE Brandon Graham and Clemson OLB Ricky Sapp would do, and Graham was injured and Sapp had an unremarkable 4.70 40 time. Neither event shuts the door on them, but neither seemed to cement themselves as a late 1st round pick either. I'd like to have read more about Georgia Tech DE Derrick Morgan, but he pulled out of the bench press drill and was not interviewed by the media.

As noted by Tom Pelissero, USC DE Everson Griffin is an interesting prospect:

Southern Cal's Everson Griffin -- whom the Packers' Clay Matthews replaced as a starter early in the 2008 season -- ran the 40 in 4.66 seconds, only two-hundredths off Dexter Davis of Arizona State's pace (4.64) for defensive ends. Griffin put up 32 bench reps and had a 36 1/2-inch vertical.

There has already been some Griffin to the Packers in the 1st round speculation going on.
