Texas Tech wide receiver Michael Crabtree is saying he's going to run a 40-yard dash in late March and then have surgery to repair the stress fracture in his foot. I think Crabtree's representatives should try to talk him out of this scenario. Teams know what he can do. It's not like he's going to run a 4.3 40-yard dash.
He should have the surgery now, so he'll be ready for the minicamps. Based on film alone, he'll be a top-10 pick. And there's a good chance he's a top-five pick. I don't think anyone would hold it against him if he goes ahead and has the surgery. In fact, he should've had it before Tech bowl game.
