Back in 2009 we included current N.F.L. starters Austin Collie and Brian Hartline in our top 100 (when most projected them as late rounders/career backups) because of their excellent shuttle runs at the Combine -- both showed amazing short area quickness. This year Dane Sanzenbacher and Jeff Maehl had the top 3 Cone & 60 yard shuttle times. The pair, also, finished 2nd and 3rd in the 20 yard shuttle, according to these Unofficial Wide Receiver Combine Numbers....I'm not sure we'll rank Dane and Jeff in our top 100, but they definitely caught our eye at the Combine, despite not running blazing 40's.
