NFL Draft: Five standout performers from Scouting Combine

He had some bad performances in the speed and strength testings. There's plenty more, but the list would eclipse the word count I'm afforded here. He measured in at 6-foot and 233 pounds, and ran the 40 in 4.40 seconds with 29 bench press reps and a vertical jump of 41.0 inches.

"Everybody in the stands was hyping me up".

"I did see some of the clips from the combine, and if Cleveland does not take him No. 1, they are absolutely insane", Ham said in the article. Of course, that means the Cleveland Browns are taking center stage.

THIN AT TACKLE: Notre Dame's Mike McGlinchey is projected as a late first-rounder, but if he falls to the second round, this year's National Football League draft would be the first one in more than a half century without an offensive tackle taken in the first round. That is nearly impossible to bungle, but it's the Browns we're talking about.

Players participating in the NFL Scouting Combine vie for the chance to one day play in front of thousands of cheering fans.

The 2018 NFL Draft Guide is here! The Browns currently have DeShone Kizer as a starter, but his future is now murky after a rocky rookie season. So the quarterback route hasn't exactly worked for Cleveland. Last year, they passed on multiple quarterbacks, including Deshaun Watson and settled for Deshone Kizer. His style is not the same as that of recent top-10 backs; Elliott, Fournette and Gurley in college played with more power and interior explosiveness, which emphasized their abilities to physically dominate tacklers. Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield had a good showing, while UCLA's Josh Rosen and Louisville's Lamar Jackson both had up-and-down performances in the passing drills. "He gave up zero sacks past year". They could fall into Barkley at one, and the quarterback they love at four. Hell, they might even take a QB at one an four and just hope one pans out.

Which guy (or guys) at the combine made you go, "that kid would really look good with a star on his helmet?"

While some may say Allen has separated himself from the pack, there is still no consensus top quarterback.

Every year players prove pundits right, prove them wrong, post first round numbers with third round tape, show why the combine exists in the first place, and prove why players schedule pro days after the combine as well. His performance might push him up towards the realm of the Eagles 32nd overall selection, or he could become a target if the Birds trade back into the second day.

But don't think they stop there.

For Browns GM John Dorsey, the task of completely rebuilding a franchise is daunting.

GREAT GRIFFIN: Shaquem Griffin did 20 reps on the bench press with a prosthetic left hand in what was by far the best feel-good story of the combine.

During the season, experts tip-toed around calling Barkley the best player in college football.

Now that the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine is in the rear view mirror, the mock drafts are really starting to flow.
