Njoku was the NFL's youngest offensive player and fared reasonably well as a rookie, too.
At the Combine, "average is good" when it comes to testing.
The NFL Combine is a great opportunity for players to prove how athletic they are as individuals.
Much has been made of the pending contract negotiations for defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who tied a career high with 11.0 sacks in 2017 en route to being named AP Defensive Player of the Year. He really helped his draft stock.
Penn State running back Saquon Barkley put his athleticism on display during the on-field workouts, running the 40-yard dash in 4.40 seconds after weighing in at 233 pounds.
"It's been exciting. I've been enjoying meeting with the teams and just going through this whole preparation", Ward said.
Unfortunately for Ronald Jones, his Combine was cut short by injury. Watch Davenport's 40-yard days and change-of-direction sessions. He also posted a strong 36.5 vertical jump before ending his day. It's not completely unheard of for a team to take a runningback early in the draft, especially one with special talent.
As I begin writing this, the Bears have officially placed the transition tag on cornerback Kyle Fuller. His 18 reps on the bench press were pedestrian as well. "If he goes to the Giants, they don't have an offensive line.I think that will be another one that won't be good for him". Mike Garafolo of NFL Media added that Barkley would be the Browns' pick at No. 1 id the draft was today, and reigning Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield could be their selection at No. 4.
Commissioner Roger Goodell, in coat, tie and slacks, ran a 5.41 40-yard dash down the carpeted hallway of National Football League headquarters Monday. "That's something I pride myself on is being able to read plays and attack them and diagnose them and make the tackle". He may be fighting to stay in the first two rounds now. College film trumps 40-yard dash times.
The second half of the combine featured the defensive side of the ball.
If the Jets settle their quarterback situation via free agency, then the sixth pick could well be the icing on top of the cake for this team.
J.T. Barrett's day at the combine was a bit mixed, but he did rattle off a rather impressive 40 time.
It's all part of the process as teams vet each player, but the combine is obviously an important aspect of the draft.
Last weekend was the NFL Scouting Combine.
