15 teams watch NIU's English work out

Full story: Chicago Tribune

The 251-pound English ran a 4.64-second 40-yard dash, much better than his 4.77 at the NFL combine.

I think English just established himself as a sure thing first round pick with that 4.62-6.64 40-yard dash. English is a great player with great game speed who will be a good pickup for whichever team gets him.

Classy kid; I hope he does well, as he deserves it. Unlike the prima donnas from the SEC, Big 10, Big 12, and PAC 10 (even Notre Dame sometimes), it is great to see a tough, hard worker like English and Garrett Wolfe get a shot.

I am an alum at a Big 10 school, but really pull for the kids who bust their butt to make it. Best of luck Larry; Godspeed!

I'd sure love to see him in a Bear uniform. My son is a big NIU fan so I've had the chance to see him play a few times the last couple of years. Great choice for LB.
