Winners from the NFL Scouting Combine

  • Mike Gesicki puts on athletic show at NFL Scouting Combine

Talking to scouts after the Senior Bowl, most projections for the UCF linebacker were fourth or fifth round, but a spot in the top 100 picks is now possible.

Saquon Barkley stole the show at the NFL Combine among running backs, and the elite Penn State runner will nearly certainly be drafted in the first four picks of the NFL Draft.

His 4.76-second 40-time, 7.24-second three-cone drill, 31 ½ inch vertical jump and 9-foot broad jump were all among the lowest out of all of the edge rushers at the Combine. Chubb really helped himself with his performance. Each of the top QBs in this class come with their own unique question marks, so taking a shot on Mayfield, who could change the culture in Cleveland from Day 1 if given the opportunity, isn't a bad idea.

Once again, the 2018 NFL Draft starts with the Cleveland Browns on the clock.

With potential top-10 picks like Derwin James, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Denzel Ward and more, there were plenty of big names to watch in this last day of action.


Allen probably has the strongest arm of any quarterback coming into the draft since Jamarcus Russell.

He ran a 4.38 in the 40-yard-dash, tying his brother Shaquill Griffin (Seattle Seahawks third round pick) from a year ago despite weighing 23 pounds more than him. His 40-inch vertical and 11-foot broad jump are off the charts for a man 215 pounds. In addition, he posted a solid 4.43 in the 40-yard dash, boosting his resume for man-to-man coverage.

Broad jump: 135 inches by wide receiver Julio Jones (Foley, Alabama) in 2011. He has the ability to greatly impact the game whenever he is on the field and could quickly become a franchise cornerstone for whatever franchise takes him in this year's draft. He measured in at 6-foot-2 and 311 pounds, and ran a 4.95-second 40.

"New general manager John Dorsey needs to completely overhaul a roster that won one game in the last two years, and the best way to do that is by selecting the best player overall at each selection", Miller writes in explaining the pick. Barkley's combination of size, speed, vision and agility have teams drooling at the top of the draft, and he erased any doubt that he'll be off the board in the top five.
