The Newport Daily News has more on Rizzi leaving for the Dolphins. Apparently he turned the position down a year ago, but changed his mind after a year at the helm.
Courtney Greene reportedly ran a 4.54 in the 40 yard dash at the NFL Combine. That's a good time, but more important might be his performance in something like the 3 cone drill, which tries to measure a player's ability to maintain speed while changing direction. Since NFL.com only releases the times from selected top performers, I haven't been able to locate that result; nor have I found the official result of Britt's time in the 40 yard dash, although the Targum quotes Rivals as giving it at 4.47. Mike Garafolo sees Plaxico Burress returning to the Giants, and doesn't think that they'll take Kenny Britt with their first round pick.

Wally Burnham's biggest regret on leaving USF?
"Probably this year against Rutgers, the 93-yard pass play to Kenny Britt. We didn't do a good job getting the kids prepared for that formation. I may have called the wrong defense.

I think that was the backbreaker on that game."
