This talented junior tailback quieted critics with a blazing 4.33 official time that was the best of the event thus far. He came in at 211 pounds and did a 33" vertical leap and a 10'8" broad jump in a fine overall performance.
This underclassman had a monster workout. He ran two low 4.3 times - including a 4.32 sprint. He is an explosive receiver at almost 6-2 and 215 pounds. On top of that, he also has kickoff return skills.
This short tailback ran poorly with 4.67 and 4.69 times in the 40. His Michigan pro day will be critical to his draft status. He also had a subpar 28-inch vertical leap and added 23 reps in the lifting.
This junior wideout failed to impress. He ran disappointing 4.59 and 4.6 times that may cost him a first-round grade. He also did only 16 reps and an average 32-inch vertical leap. He needs a strong showing at pro day as well.
Keller is an athletic, smaller tight end who we had on our top 100 board prior to the Combine. He had a huge workout – likely the most impressive showing on Day 1. He ran 4.53 and 4.54 times in the 40. He had an exceptional 38" vertical leap with a solid 26 reps @ 225 lbs. Keller displayed sure hands and the ability to adjust to the ball. Despite already being in our top 100, he could move up further following the Combine.
Just like the first day of the Senior Bowl, this guy stood out on Day 1 in Indianapolis. He is a massive tackle who checked in at 6'6" and 315 lbs. He ran very good 5.07 and 5.18 times and looked nimble in the agility drills, though he did only 21 reps.
This college right tackle ran an impressive 4.99 40 with a good 10-yard split time. He was second among OL with 35 reps in the lifting and looked mobile in the agility drills. He certainly helped his draft status.
Carlson missed the Senior Bowl with an illness, and he may still be feeling the ill effects. He ran a disappointing 4.96 and 4.89 times at just under 6-5 and 251 lbs. He did only 20 reps, but did catch the ball well in the receiving drills.
This young junior tight end checked in at 6-4 and 243 lbs. He ran a disappointing 4.82 time and managed only 20 reps, which will make his pro day at Texas critical to his final grade. He looked good in the vertical leap and receiving drills and has intriguing upside, but must run better for an early draft grade.
This massive left tackle is not the type of lineman to shine in athletic drills. He ran a poor 5.56 time at 332 pounds, and did 27 reps in the lifting. His agility drills were only adequate, which leaves questions about his readiness to play early as a pro. He may have cost himself a first-round grade.
This large prospect checked in over 6-6 and 325 lbs. He ran a poor 5.47 time and struggled with the 225 bench press as well. He is a waist-bender who continues to fall down the charts.
