Winners from the NFL Scouting Combine

Posted March 09, 2018

The NFL scouting combine has concluded and until players work out at their individual pro days, it will be the last live look teams get at individual prospects prior to the draft. I bet teams are heading back to their respective cities and throwing on more tape of Griffin after his Combine performance.

As is always the case with these things, there were players who hurt their draft stock and those that pushed themselves up draft boards with a good performance. These are the players that boosted their stock, either with the workouts or in the interview process - though we are more privy to the information to judge players based on the former.

It was time for the pass rushers, defensive linemen and linebackers to strut their stuff.

Currently, the Giants have the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and some think they are sitting in a really good spot with that pick given all of the options available to them.

Another addition is better support for location discovery when you're in a building, which will use Wi-Fi Round-Trip-Time (RTT). Google releases Developer Preview builds on a couple of platforms, but the one for Android Things is handled quite differently.

Even more impressive, he did it all with just one hand.

Among the combine participants who played football at an Alabama high school or college, Smith's performance in the bench press equaled the 35 repetitions by guard Evan Mathis (Homewood, Alabama) in 2005 and defensive end Carl Lawson (Auburn) in 2017. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds and impressed during the rest of his on-field drills. In addition, he posted a solid 4.43 in the 40-yard dash, boosting his resume for man-to-man coverage. That's almost unheard of from a linebacker. He also posted 20 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press using a prosthetic on his left arm. That's a lot of speed and power. After this showing it'll be a surprise if Griffin isn't a top-100 overall pick. Fitzpatrick is expected to be the first safety off the board, but James proved to be the more explosive athlete at the Combine. Among the quarterbacks, he posted the quickest 20-yard shuttle (4.07 seconds), was fourth in the 3-cone drill (6.95) and the broad jump (9 feet, 5 inches), and tied for fourth in the vertical jump (31 inches). With that comes a much higher first-round grade.

He was the center of Tyronn Lue's newest starting lineup that still has a familiar anchor who's pretty good. He was also impressed with how the 25-year-old performed on the court.

While he might not be terribly polished, more than enough teams will like the raw clay they have with Davenport.
