2020 Combine day three — DB

March 1st, 2020 | Written by Rob Staton

Feel free to use this as an open thread. I will post forty yard dash times here and any other testing numbers. At the end of the day I will post a review of the combine.

If you want a refresher on what to look out for at each position check out our massive combine preview.

Cornerbacks

Players with +32 inch arms have a star next to their name:

Damon Arnette — 4.57 & 4.57
Trajan Bandy — 4.50 & DNP
Essang Bassey — 4.46 & 4.51
Brian Cole — 4.53 & 4.56
Nevelle Clarke — DNP
Cam Dantzler — 4.64 & 4.65
Javaris Davis — 4.40 & 4.44
*Trevon Diggs — DNP
Kristian Fulton — 4.47 & 4.53
Jeff Gladney — 4.49 & 4.57
AJ Green — 4.63 & 4.71
Javelin Guidry — 4.30 & 4.30
*Bryce Hall — DNP
Harrison Hand — 4.53 & 4.52
CJ Henderson — 4.39 & 4.41
Lavert Hill — DNP
Darnay Holmes — 4.51 & 4.49
Noah Igbinoghene — 4.48 & 4.53
Dane Jackson — 4.60 & 4.57
*Lamar Jackson — 4.65 & 4.60
Jaylon Johnson — 4.51 & 4.54
*BoPete Keyes — DNP
*Micheal Ojemudia — 4.45 & 4.69
*Jeff Okudah — 4.48 & 4.50
James Pierre — 4.64 & 4.59
Troy Pride — 4.45 & 4.46
John Reid — 4.50 & 4.50
Amik Robertson — DNP
Reggie Robinson — 4.49 & 4.45
Stanford Samuels — 4.66 & 4.71
Josiah Scott — 4.42 & 4.45
AJ Terrell — 4.43 & 4.43
Stanley Thomas-Oliver — 4.50 & 4.49
*Kindle Vilor — 4.56 & 4.44

This is not a cornerback group for the Seahawks. There may be alternatives not working out at the combine but it’s hard to find an option among this collection.

If we exclude Jeff Okudah, only four players ran with +32 inch arms. Kindle Vilor lacks their preferred height while Michael Ojemudia is slight and Lamar Jackson lacks twitch and agility.

    Really watching Lamar Jackson closely today to see how he moves. I hope they show more of the drills today.

  2. Trevor says:

    All the top guys not running is getting old. Funny thing is the top guys who have no question marks about speed always seem to have no problems running and competing. The guys who do have question mark now all feel like they don’t need to run and just wait till their pro day with less eyes and hand times instead of electronic.

  3. Trevor says:

    Rob I remember you being really high on Henderson when the CFB season began. He looks like the perfect slot CB in todays NFL. He is going to shine today I imagine and that 40 was a good start.

  4. CaptainJack says:

    Is it just me or do these times seem slow?

  5. Trevor says:

    So far only Micheal Ojemudia seems to meet both the arm length and speed criteria.

  6. Trevor says:

    Really like Pride (ND) as a Day #3 guy to come in and compete at the slot CB spot. He seemed like a really feisty competitor at the Senior Bowl and has good speed.

  7. LA_Hawks says:

    Rob, do you think there’s a chance that PC/JS coul pursue S A. Harris or CB B. Jones?

    • Rob Staton says:

      Jones will be way out of their price range. I don’t think they’ll pay top dollar for a 29-year-old safety with the options they already have there.

      The resources have to be spent on the DL.

      • cha says:

        Indeed. And if they get even a middling pass rush, the DBs already on the roster will look 10% better just from having to cover for a shorter time period.

  8. Volume12 says:

    Let’s see what Jeremy Chinn does. So far so good.

    41″ vert and 11’6″ broad.

    Kyle Dugger with a 42″ vert and 11’2″ broad.

  9. AndrewP says:

    Vilor and Ojemudua, two guys that are on the radar had time oddities between their runs: .24 seconds for Vilor and .14 for Ojedmudia.

    Probably means (and will mean) nothing to the teams, I just find it odd (frustrating) when trying to determine what their true speed is and what range they will likely go.

    • Rob Staton says:

      Worth noting Vilor is smaller than their size threshold.

      • AndrewP says:

        Rob- Where would you pull the trigger on Ojemudia?

        I ask b/c with those times he might have vaulted himself into the 4th RD, and that’s usually a round earlier than they like to strike with their type of guys. (Yes, I say this realizing there are exceptions in Thurmond, Griffin and Amadi).

        • Rob Staton says:

          I haven’t watched him at all. Didn’t really think he looked like a Seahawks corner based on the eye test in shorts.

          • Jim says:

            Rob, Ojemudia feels more like Byron Maxwell than he does Tre Flowers or Brandon Browner. And that’s not a bad thing. I like his effort in run support a lot and can make plays on the ball. Seems like a guy to take a shot on in the round 4-5 range to push Tre Flowers (he plays the RCB position).

  10. CojackTX says:

    Any safeties going today who may be considered corner converts?

  11. Ashish says:

    CB is not must, but we need good backup on both spot. They might trade or look in FA. Not sure King and Thorpe is option as backup

  12. Aaron says:

    Hawks have how many picks in this draft? A dozen or so, right? I don’t see a dozen guys that they’d want to pick. Gonna need to hit that trade market real hard to find a championship team for 2020.

  13. Volume12 says:

    Gonna be some highly intriguing pro days this year.

  14. JimQ says:

    The Seahawks most recent “good” slot CB, Justin Coleman MIGHT be a “blueprint” of what they seek at slot CB? #’s For purposes of comparison to (maybe a few?) players in this draft, per mockdraftable.com.

    CB-Justin Coleman, Tennessee, 2015 draft. (He put up some “nearly elite” #’s)
    5′-11″, 185-lbs, 31-1/4″-arms, 9-3/8″-hands, 4.53/40, 1.42-10 yd. split, 37-1/2″-VERT, 10′-4″-Broad jump, 6.61-3 cone, 3.98-20 yd shuttle, 11.21-60 yd shuttle, & 20-Reps on the bench.

  15. Volume12 says:

    Jeff Gladney looks really good. Most underrated corner this year for me.

    Kristian Fulton too. 4.47 is an excellent time for him.

  16. Volume12 says:

    Did Okudah get hurt?

  17. SonGoku says:

    Really think that either Jonathan Taylor or a OT are the only options at #27. Maybe we are lucky and Delpit falls…

  18. Volume12 says:

    Really wanna see Marlon Davidson’s Auburn pro day.

    Davidson: I love most about the game is that I can literally go out there and hit a man consistently and pound him and the police not come. That is the most enjoyable moment about ball. To go out there and really abuse somebody.

    Davidson: Can’t tell people your a dog. You gotta go out and show it.

    He has some EDGE like traits too. His bend is pretty incredible for a 300 lber. And then you see plays like this…

    https://twitter.com/i/status/1233408143369129984

    Dude is different. He’s gonna outwork a lot of people.

    • Rob Staton says:

      He’s such a dog that Auburn took him out for running downs.

      • Volume12 says:

        When?

        • Rob Staton says:

          2019 games.

          Watch them — he was spelled a lot.

          Per Lance Zierlein’s report:

          “Played just 51 percent of snaps against the run”

          This dog is all bark and no bite. Telling everyone he’s a dog. Plays half the run downs.

          • Volume12 says:

            I have. Didn’t see anything unusual at all. Florida, Oregon, Minnesota, the ‘Bama game he’s cleary hurt as when he does come back in he’s limping.

            • Rob Staton says:

              Stats don’t lie though. He only played 51% of their run downs. I watched a game two weeks ago (full game to watch the Prince) and noticed him off the field a lot.

  19. cha says:

    Schefter reports Conklin not necessarily to the Jets once FA opens.

    So while the legal tampering period won’t be open for a couple weeks, the illegal tampering period appears wide open LOL.

  20. drewdawg11 says:

    I love me some Darnay Holmes. His arms are short, though. I wonder if they’d be willing to overlook that and put him in the slot. He’s such a tough, aggressive playmaker on defense. He doesn’t back down from anyone. Great ball skills. Would love to see his other testing numbers. Around 4.5 like I thought. All I know is he’s been an alpha since his peewee days.

    • Sea Mode says:

      I really liked the way he competed in Sr. Bowl 1v1s, but did kind of cross him off due to arm length.

  21. Sea Mode says:

    Dang it, forgot it started earlier today.

    Wow, Henderson looked silky smooth and fluid turning his hips.

    Eager to get the agility testing results.

    • drewdawg11 says:

      Henderson has made himself some cash! He’s the polar opposite of AJ Epenesa. Seriously, he looks like a top 15 selection today.

  22. Denver Hawker says:

    Dugger with 42 vert and 11’2 broad- won’t make it out of R2

  23. Davido says:

    I hope Duggers second 40 won’t be faster and we can get him with one of our second rounders.

  24. Rob Staton says:

    4.64 for Xavier McKinney.

    I’ve been saying it’d be in that range.

    Too much hype.

  25. drewdawg11 says:

    Dugger ran 4.50. He probably has faster in him. I’m almost tempted to say this guy can play OLB for us and Pete can keep his base defense out there as much as he wants. Take he and Willie Gay Jr. and put the hurt on people. Blair/Diggs/Dugger in the nickel and Clowney plus Fowler pinning their ears back. Fun stuff.

  26. Cameron says:

    Any safeties that look like possible Seahawk corners this year (a la Tre Flowers)?

  27. drewdawg11 says:

    Chin: 32 1/8

  28. Trevor says:

    Wow Chinn is a pretty special athlete. Followed closely by Duggar. Anxious to see their agility numbers as well.

    I don’t think either guy ends up with the Hawks as we have far bigger needs to address early but I would love to see either guy in a Hawks uni.

  29. Bigtwn says:

    Still would love Winfield as a slot.

  30. Volume12 says:

    That time for Winfield, jr is outstanding. Plays just like his dad.

    Good stuff from Terrell Burgess too. He’s offer some great versatility to some team.

  31. McZ says:

    Tanner Muse with an excellent 4.42, better than Earl Thomas while being 25 pds heavier.
    Here is what Lance Zierlein labelled him: “Slow-footed safety with hybrid linebacker tendencies.”

  32. Trevor says:

    If we had not taken Blair so early last year I would love the idea of taking Duggar or Chinn with one of the 2nd round picks. That being said they may go earlier than that anyways.

  33. Trevor says:

    Having watched that CB class today I think the Hawks best option to improve the secondary play next year is go out and sign a guy like Kendal Fuller to start in the slot. He could also move outside in an emergency and let Amadi continue to develop.

    • Rob Staton says:

      Probably too expensive

    • WALL UP says:

      Still have my hopes up for Amik Robertson. But, keep your eye on DET, and how they move on from Darius Slay. He offers a viable solution that will limit Flowers to ~70% of the snaps against #3 receivers, instead of Davante Adams, or Emmanuel Saunders, and the like.

      It should be interesting how they address the slot position though.

  34. Sea Mode says:

    Antoine Brooks has been really nice gauntlet.

    Chinn caught the ball well, but ran it slow.

  35. Kenny Sloth says:

    How y’all like Winfield Jr

  36. WALL UP says:

    With all the attention focused on the WR class, and rightly so, the DB group will fair well in those reaching the 1st Rd.

    Jeff Okudah
    Grant Delpit
    CJ Henderson
    Trevon Diggs

    * possible late entries

    *Kyle Dugger
    *AJ Terrell

    This may push someone done into Rd 2. It’s also hard to imagine Jonathan Taylor not in the 1st Rd after his performance.

    Who would be of those that would slip out of the 1st? Perhaps a few WRs?

  37. GoHawksDani says:

    Wow, Javelin Guidry 4.29 and 21 bench press…that is sick.
    Really raw and a bit small but maybe for slot in a later round?
    He’s smaller than Coleman but has same armlength and heavier. Run the 40 much faster and benched more. If he has good agility numbers I’d take him in the 4th/5th he’s an out of the box gunner maybe could return punts/kicks and an upside to coach him up and become a good nCB?

  38. Trevor says:

    This seems like a really weak draft class outside of OL and WR. The top 12 seem about set in some order. After that I think the real value in the draft is on Day #2 (Rounds 2-3). Then it seems to drop off a cliff unlike other years. I hope JS maneuvers to get as many picks as possible between 40-80.

    Top 12 in some order. Am I missing anyone?

    Burrow
    Tua
    Herbert
    Odukah
    Simmons
    Brown
    Kinlaw
    Becton
    Wirfs
    Willis
    Thomas
    Jeudy

  39. I feel like Michael Pittman could be a sleeper pick. I know he doesn’t quite have the speed to extend the field like some of the other players, but he just seems like a winner. He has a large frame, great route runner, good hands, and surprising agility. I think he could surprise!
