South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney clocked "unofficial" forty times of 4.47 and 4.48 at the NFL Scouting Combine, though his official time was later announced at 4.53.
Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network said that Clowney "is on another planet." We are guessing Clowney earned a "rare" grade, and many other evaluators will give the same designation. Calvin Johnson, Ndamukong Suh, and Andrew Luck are three recent prospects to earn the same designation by some scouts.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Miguel Castro will open the season in the majors.
Castro flew under the radar in the minors last season, but is making the rare jump from A-Ball to the majors. This is thanks to his (likely) temporary move to the bullpen for the Spring, which enabled his stuff to tick up a bit in shorter outings. He's likely next in line to receive saves should Brett Cecil fail, and the 20-year old is worth keeping an eye on. Analysis: Ben Diamond
