Scouting Combine: Five players who impressed on Friday

Adjust Comment Print

Interestingly enough, the March 3, 2018 roundup of National Football League mock draft results show players at numerous positions and several players at the same position, meaning just about anyone could be in play when Minnesota is on the clock. If you were impressed with Notre Dame OG Quenton Nelson bench-pressing 35 reps, allow me to inform you that Hernandez benched 37, the most of any offensive lineman this year. Things got even worse when he ran a slow 40-yard dash and put up historically low numbers in the vertical and broad jumps. He also tied for the fastest 10-yard split in his group, jumping off the block in 1.76 seconds. "You can watch last year's tape and see he allowed zero sacks".

But measures matter, too, and Brown's wretched week will undoubtedly stick in the minds of scouts, coaches and general managers leading up to the draft next month.

While there's plenty left to digest, let's take a look at five of the biggest winners from the combine so far. Mike Mayock described his 40-yard dash performance perfectly, calling it, "a historically bad time", as reported by Sporting News.

And for comparison, when Dallas Cowboys standout Ezekiel Elliott took part in the 2016 combine, he recorded a 31-inch vertical and 4.47 second 40-dash at 6-feet, 225 pounds.

He followed it up Friday with even more fantastic numbers: a 41-inch vertical jump, and 4.41- and 4.42-second times (unofficial) in the 40-yard dash.

Based on his performances at Penn State, his off-field makeup and interviews, Barkley was already highly impressive.
