Live blog: Combine day one workouts — OL, RB

March 1st, 2019 | Written by Rob Staton

Welcome to our coverage of the 2019 NFL combine. Every day we’ll be updating events as they happen in Indianapolis, posting workout numbers and information.

This post will be updated consistently so keep hitting refresh.

We’ll end each day with a separate ‘review’ piece. In today’s we’ll be posting TEF results for the 2019 O-line class and reviewing which running backs fit Seattle’s prototype.

It’s a solid offensive line class with depth stretching into days 2-3. The running back group is nowhere near as strong as a year ago but there could be some potential value on day three if the Seahawks need to add a runner (much will depend on what happens with Mike Davis).

Defensive line weigh-in numbers

Dexter Lawrence is going to surprise people at this combine. He’s 6-5, 342lbs, has 34.5 inch arms and an 84-inch wingspan. That’s incredible size and he carries it superbly. He will run much faster than normal for a 342lbs linemen and people will be left talking about him after Saturday’s workout.

Ed Oliver came in at 6-2 and 287lbs. Here’s the problem though — he only has 31 6/8 inch arms. He lacks the size to play inside for early downs and doesn’t have the length to kick outside or even act as a five technique. Even with Oliver expected to have a great workout — it’s difficult to project what he is at the next level.

Quinnen Williams is 6-3, 303lbs with 33 2/8 inch arms. Christian Wilkins is 6-3, 315lbs with 32.5 inch arms. Khalen Saunders is 6-0, 324lbs with 32 2/8 inch arms.

Reminder — Seattle hasn’t drafted a defensive lineman or EDGE rusher with sub-33 inch arms.

Dre’Mont Jones is 281lbs and 6-2 6/8 in height. That’s smaller than expected. He has good length (33 6/8 inch arms) but ideally he’d be at the 290lbs range. It’s possible he dropped weight to run well at the combine.

Daniel Wise is a name to keep an eye on. He’s 6-2 5/8 in height, 281lbs and has 33 inch arms. He’s incredibly quick as a pass rusher and will be available later than the likes of Oliver, Jones and others. As a specialist interior rusher he could be an option if he tests well.

Renell Wren looks the part as expected — 6-5, 318lbs, 34 inch arms and nearly an 82-inch wingspan.

Nick Bosa is nearly 6-4, 266lbs with 33 inch arms. Clelin Ferrell is 6-4, 264lbs and has 34 1/8 inch arms.

Jachai Polite gets mocked to Seattle frequently but his 32 5/8 inch arms could be an issue. He’s 6-2 and 258lbs. His wingspan, however, is a very reasonable 80 2/8 inches.

Brian Burns completely answered any concerns about his size — weighing in at 249lbs. He’s also nearly 6-5 and has 34 inch arms and nearly an 84-inch wingspan. We’ll need to see how he works out tomorrow but this is a major positive for a player who reportedly played in the 220’s during the season. 249lbs is still not ‘big’ and he’ll need a Danielle Hunter type workout (as will Montez Sweat) to secure a first round placing.

Sweat weighed 260lbs at nearly 6-6. That’s a nice improvement from the Senior Bowl. He has nearly 36 inch arms.

Christian Miller is 6-3, 247lbs and has 35 1/8 inch arms plus an 82 2/8 inch wingspan. D’Andre Walker is 6-2, 251lbs, has 34.5 inch arms and nearly an 82-inch wingspan. There are lots of long, athletic EDGE types in this class.

There’s no Mike Mayock this year, obviously, which is a real shame. Mayock and the combine went hand-in-hand. Wonder how long it’ll take Daniel Jeremiah to say, “when I was in Baltimore…” or “Haloti Ngata”.

There’s another disappointing change this year. There’s no continuous live feed via NFL.com. This means you can’t track all of the forty times or workouts and have to endure the advert breaks on the NFL Network.

The coverage so far has been generally poor. Very little live action and a lot of adverts.

Offensive line Group 1 forty yard dash times

10-yard splits are in brackets

Paul Adams — 5.19 & 5.25 (1.83)
Jackson Barton — 5.18 & 5.19 (1.82)
Ryan Bates — 5.02 & 5.13 (1.70)
Beau Benzschawel — 5.26 (1.88)
Garrett Bradbury — 4.95 & 4.93 (1.74)
Deion Calhoun — 5.08 & 5.10 (1.72)
Dennis Daley — 5.27 & 5.24 (1.87)
Nate Davis — 5.24 & 5.25 (1.84)
Michael Deiter — 5.23 & 5.28 (1.81)
Andre Dillard — 4.99 & 4.97 (1.69)
Chuma Edoga — 5.20 & DNP (1.78)
David Edwards — 5.28 & 5.29 (1.80)
Bobby Evans — 5.22 & 5.21 (1.86)
Cody Ford — 5.21 & 5.30 (1.81)
Hjalte Froholdt — 5.22 & 5.20 (1.83)
Derwin Gray — 5.46 & 5.26 (1.85)
Phil Haynes — 5.22 & 5.20 (1.79)
Nate Herbig — 5.42 & 5.42 (1.87)

Andre Dillard looks like a terrific athlete. He ran a good forty and ten-yard split and he operated very well in the movement/agility drills. He looks the part of an athletic pass protector and it’s no surprise he’s being touted as a top-15 pick on this evidence.

Garrett Bradbury ran well but just looks extremely small. He’s getting a lot of praise on the NFL Network and many believe he will go in the first round. I’d be a little concerned about how he’ll operate at the next level with his frame.

Cody Ford is showing off his unique mobility with great size. David Edwards and Bobby Evans moved well in the drills designed to get them working to the second level.

Here’s Mike Solari running the early O-line drills…

Yodny Cajuste is expected to have an explosive performance in the vertical and broad but he appears stiff moving laterally and changing direction.

Andre Dillard continues to look fantastic. His knee bend is top-level, he’s incredibly agile and quick and his hand placement on the pad drills was good. He’s the star performer in this first group and he’s standing out in a big way.

The NFL Network cut away to adverts during the bulk of the kick slide drill. Chuma Edoga looked solid working from the right side (not so much from the left) and Cody Ford moved well for his size. Andre Dillard looked like an absolute natural again in his left tackle kick slide. He’s a top-20 lock based on this workout today.

Garrett Bradbury was very controlled and balanced in the mirror drill. Yodny Cajuste performed well in the mirror too — very quick, sharp movements with plenty of balance. Dillard, you won’t be surprised to hear, again looked terrific here. Very athletic and an absolute natural. Cody Ford also showed well — staying square and playing with sufficient control and bend.

Offensive line Group 2 forty yard dash times

10-yard splits are in brackets

Tytus Howard — 5.05 & 5.06 (1.81)
Andre James — 5.32 & 5.33 (1.85)
Devon Johnson — 5.13 & 5.17 (1.81)
Michael Jordan — 5.28 & 5.31 (1.86)
Chris Lindstrom — 4.92 & 4.93 (1.70)
Greg Little — 5.34 & 5.35 (1.84)
Erik McCoy — 4.90 & 4.92 (1.72)
Kaleb McGary — 5.15 & 5.06 (1.83)
Joshua Miles — 5.33 & 5.42 (1.85)
Iosua Opeta — 5.03 & 5.05 (1.76)
Javon Patterson — 5.14 & 5.13 (1.78)
Ross Pierschbacher — 5.24 & 5.21 (1.85)
Trey Pipkins — 5.12 & 5.19 (1.75)
Isaiah Prince — 5.09 & 5.12 (1.77)
Dalton Risner — 5.36 & 5.31 (1.93)
Tyler Roemer — 5.21 & 5.30 (1.78)
Dru Samia — 5.30 & 5.33 (1.84)
William Sweet — 5.35 & 5.27 (1.85)
Oli Udoh — 5.08 & 5.05 (1.85)
Jonah Williams — 5.10 & 5.13 (1.77)

Chris Lindstrom was expected to have a very athletic workout and be one of the best testers. A 4.92 forty and a 1.70 10-yard split is a good start.

Isaiah Prince looks really good. Well proportioned, minimal bad weight. He’s a player I’m keeping an eye on.

In the first drill, Mike Solari specifically called out Jonah Williams to give an example of the test. Probably fair to say there’s some respect for the player there.

Chris Lindstrom looked very smooth and agile in the wave drill — showing good transition and change of direction. Erik McCoy also excelled.

Sean Payton was surprisingly candid about his view on Kyler Murray. “He’s too good. I like him.”

Kaleb McGary’s body fat percentage looks incredibly low. He’s all muscle. Terrific frame. His explosive testing results will be interesting to see. Jonah Williams isn’t the same kind of athlete. I’ve a hard time understanding how/why he was ever touted as a top-10 pick. He’s solid and technically seems pretty adept but he has physical limitations that were at times exposed (eg vs Clemson).

Elgton Jenkins looks like a great big ball of power.

Rich Eisen might be the single best sports host on planet earth. What a natural.

Dalton Risner just looks exactly like the type of guy you’d want playing guard. Big but in proportion. Little bit of attitude. Good length. His explosive testing will be interesting to see because he doesn’t seem like an athlete but the frame is good.

Chris Lindstrom looked good in the kick slide. Greg Little had a surprisingly sloppy rep. Erik McCoy has been putting on a show. They made Kaleb McGary do his rep twice because the rabbit didn’t run quickly enough.

Isaiah Prince has a nice wide stance, he looks incredibly athletic and just has a nice long frame.

Here are some of the official forty times…

Chris Lindstrom looked good in the backpedal drill. The Eagles coach started the drill by telling him, “this drill is made for you.”

Greg Little hasn’t stood out — similar to his 2018 season tape. Erik McCoy had another good rep and has been one of the top performers in this second session.

Dalton Risner’s rep wasn’t pretty but it got the job done. He isn’t a great athlete but there is just something about his frame and attitude that appeals.

Max Scharping didn’t have a good Senior Bowl but his backpedal drill was very solid. Good use of the hips, did well to get downfield.

Jawaan Taylor is clearly not healthy. He didn’t run the forty and toiled a bit during drills. The coaches seemed pleased with Jonah Williams’ tight drill.

Elgton Jenkins had a really good mirror drill. He just looks the part of a top-50 pick. Chris Lindstrom equally looked very athletic — good quick steps, kept the pace up throughout the drill. Erik McCoy, no surprise, did well again.

Greg Little struggled in the mirror drill. It’s surprising how average Little has looked today.

Kaleb McGary was in very control but wasn’t really tested by his rabbit.

Dalton Risner keeps his base spread and his footwork is very good. Risner absolutely took it Jawaan Taylor as the rabbit. My word! He was sprinting around like his hair was on fire. Wow! What an effort. Love that. Loads of guys slouch as the rabbit. Risner was darting around, changing direction. Absolutely went for it.

Select Vertical & Broad jumps

Andre Dillard — 29 / 9-10 (This is strange from Dillard because the vertical is meh and the broad is WOW)

Garrett Bradbury — 31 / 8-8

Kaleb McGary — 33.5 / 9-3 (Very, very good)

Jonah Williams — 28 / 8-4 (not explosive)

Erik McCoy — 31

Chris Lindstrom — 30.5

Tytus Howard — 29.5

Cody Ford — 28.5

Dalton Risner — 28.5

Michael Deiter — 28

Elgton Jenkins — 28

David Edwards — 25.5

Mitch Hyatt — 25.5

Greg Little — 25

We’ll publish full TEF results in our review piece later.

Running back forty yard dash times

Ryquell Armstead — 4.46 & 4.46
Alex Barnes — 4.63 & 4.59
Nick Brosette — 4.72 & 4.75
Myles Gaskin — 4.60 & 4.59
Damien Harris — 4.58 & 4.64
Darrell Henderson — 4.53 & 4.37
Karan Higdon — 4.50 & 4.58
Justice Hill — 4.40 & 4.49
Elijah Holyfield — 4.79 & 4.81
Travis Homer — 4.49 & 4.54
Alec Ingold — 4.90 & 4.90
Alexander Mattison — 4.68 & 4.70
David Montgomery — 4.64 & 4.64
Qadree Ollison — 4.61 & 4.59
Tony Pollard — 4.53 & 4.60
Miles Sanders — 4.50 & 4.50
Jordan Scarlett — 4.49 & 4.48
Devin Singletary — 4.66 & 4.69
Benny Snell Jr — 4.70 & 4.67
Mike Weber — 4.49 & 4.48
Dexter Williams — 4.57 & 4.58
James Williams — 4.58 & 4.60
Trayveon Williams — 4.51 & 4.56

I really like Ryquell Armstead. Tough, physical and now 4.46 fast. That’s really good and he fits Seattle’s size profile.

This was a big difference compared to a year ago. Not a highly impressive group of runners here. It’s a small group too — although some key names didn’t run.

Remember — the explosive testing results are more important than the forty.

Jordan Scarlett looks very interesting. Well put together. Might have to take a closer look at him.

Mike Weber looked very smooth in the cone-drills emphasising change of direction.

Here are the vertical jumps for some the running backs:

Justice Hill — 40
Travis Homer — 39.5
Alex Barnes — 38.5
Damien Harris — 37
James Williams — 36.5
Myles Gaskin — 35.5
Tony Pollard — 35
Devin Singletary — 35
Alec Ingold — 34
Mike Weber — 33.5
Ryquell Armstead — 30
Jordan Scarlett — 30
Benny Snell — 29.5
David Montgomery — 28.5

I’m now closing the live blog for day one. The O-line and running back testing numbers have been revealed so I’m going to get started on TEF scores and identifying potential running back targets. The review piece will be posted shortly plus don’t forget — later today we’ll also have the first of our daily combine podcasts.

    Jerry Tilley with a fantastic physical profile.

    Oliver ain’t that much off from some of the better 3-techs in the league.

  2. Volume12 says:

    Brian Burns at 249! 🔥

    • C-Dog says:

      Huge deal. Going to be really interesting watching his workouts

    • Trevor says:

      That is a good weight for him. I think he will eventually play between 250-260 with a couple of years in an NFL weight room and nutrition plan etc. I have thought he was a top 15 talent all year and think if he tests decent this week he will be for sure.

    • Eburgz says:

      Looks like the moon really is made of cheese. 😉

  3. Volume12 says:

    If Burns turns up during the drills he just became a top 12-15 pick. He’s the best pass rusher in this draft behind Bosa. For me anyways.

  4. millhouse-serbia says:

    Burns is 249lbs. Win for him.

  5. Volume12 says:

    When and where did everyone assume that some of these guys were so small? NFL. com? Yes, team websites lie. Not that much though.

  6. C-Dog says:

    I’ve thought about this for a while about him, but with that length and weight now confirmed, could Dre’Mont Jones be a strong consideration for Seattle to play that 5T role they hoped McDowell could play?

    I know they likely drafted Rasheem Green for that, the dude just lived in the backfield in college, and given a chance to kick outside could be beneficial to him and the team on early downs.

  7. Volume12 says:

    Andre Dillard and Garrett Bradbury so far are killing it.

    Brandon Graham resigns with Philly for 3 more years.r

    Wisconsin FB Alec Ingold met with the Seahawks.

    • Trevor says:

      If the Hawks get some additional late round picks I think Ingold is a lock to be a Seahawk.

    • Rob Staton says:

      Not surprised on Ingold. Might be a player they ‘have to have’.

    • Sea Mode says:

      Should we take it literally when guys like Ingold and Gaskin said the met with every team? Should I add them to the visits/meetings tracker?

      https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1J3d023YdKp9MFv7OQTy0YTssJ65qLd_aB0UJFGVHxPY/edit#gid=562886959

      • Volume12 says:

        Yes. Why wouldn’t you? They only get to meet 60 outta the 300+ players there.

        • Sea Mode says:

          Cool. I guess I just didn’t know if it was one of those ways of saying, “I’ve met with 20+ teams I can’t even keep track of exactly how many, so I’ll just say I met with “everybody” and avoid further questions on the topic.

    • WALL UP says:

      Signing Quinn with a “15 mil guaranteed signing bonus, spread out over 3 yrs for 27 mil contract, with incentives,” seems to be a reasonable offer, compared to Graham’s new deal at 3yrs/40mil.

      Graham’s new deal makes the cost for FA pass rushers more difficult in finding bargains for sure. I still have hopes for a Quinn signing though, once he is released.

      • Rob Staton says:

        I’m still confused why anyone should be offering Robert Quinn a three-year commitment after his last couple of seasons.

        He’s a one-year rental these days.

        • WALL UP says:

          The comparison of Quin [https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/Q/QuinRo00.htm] and Graham [https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/G/GrahBr99.htm] gives you reasons why more than one year would be warranted.

          Quinn is also 2 yrs younger than Graham. The past (2) years, Quinn has had 15 sacks compared to Graham’s 13.5, 27 QB hits to Graham’s 25, and he played (1) less game oyer the last 2 yrs than Graham, missing just (1) game.

          Make no mistake about it, Quinn can still get after the QB. I doubt if they will be able to get him for less than a multi year deal. I’m sure he wants, like most veteran pass rushers, to be respected. To only guarantee 15mil spread over (3), with incentives, could be something that may entice him to come to the PNW, with still penty in the tank.

          But, the has now gone up. Maybe 3 yrs/30mil.

          • Rob Staton says:

            And yet the Rams and Dolphins are/were very happy to move on from Quinn… and the Eagles were aggressive to make sure Graham never reached free agency.

            • WALL UP says:

              The Rams changed their defensive schemes and were playing Quinn out of position in a 3-4 OLB position, like Graham. They also had a cap decision that forced the trade to Miami. Now, Miami is in a cost cutting situation as well. Hence, Quinn is about to be released. Though that decision has not been made as yet, because Quinn is still a good player.

              Miami is rebuilding with a new Coach, and perhaps changing to a new defensive scheme similar to NE’s 3-4 concepts. Quinn is best suited for a 4-3 defense at DE, not a OLB.

              Sometimes timing is all that is needed, for the right pieces to the puzzle are able to fit together. Quinn could be a great piece to the puzzle for making the Hawk defense a terror again.

  8. Trevor says:

    Dexter Lawrence is a stud. That is a guy who is going to be so much better as a pro IMO. Still so young too.

    Imagine the Hawks extend Reed and draft Lawrence! Add in Poona and that would be a sick DT rotation perhaps the best in the league against the run.

  9. Cameron says:

    I’m doing exactly what I said I wouldn’t do and falling in love with a prospect… Cody Ford is looking more and more like a dream guard prospect to me. I’d love to see him and Fluker anchoring the interior in 2019.

    That aside, I’m really glad Solari gets such an up close and personal look at all of these prospects, coaching on the field through this process.

  10. MCGruff says:

    In drills a few standouts.

    Dillard, Ford and Bradbury all look like 1st round picks. Dillard moves like a top 10 LT.

    Davis is a great guard prospect. Low base, quick feet, great hands, moves well for a huge man.

    3 guys that looked good in drills and warrant more film study were derwin Gray, Phil Haynes and the big Danish dude.

    • j says:

      31 inch arms for Bradbury though . . .

    • Volume12 says:

      Bradbury looks like the best O-lineman here and his tape ain’t far off either.

    • Volume12 says:

      Joe Thomas mentioned something about Dillard that’s interesting. Thought his pass sets were bad reps. His left knee. Thinks he’s prone to getting beat by power.

  11. Sea Mode says:

    Wow, great size for Walker:

    Georgia LB D’Andre Walker
    Height: 6-2 3/8
    Weight: 251
    Hand: 9 7/8
    Arm: 34 3/8
    Wingspan: 81 6/8

  12. Sea Mode says:

    WOW! Now that’s what I’m talking about! Got Seahawk written all over him!

    Alabama LB Christian Miller
    Height: 6-3 3/8
    Weight: 247
    Hand (right): 9 4/8
    Hand (left): 9 6/8
    Arm: 35 1/8
    Wingspan: 82 2/8

    • j says:

      Only problem is if he is gone before our first pick.

    • j says:

      Will he be there in the second though? Cause we are going to trade down, come hell or high water.

      • Sea Mode says:

        I think he will be there. Age and injury history will play a factor. Plus, he didn’t get a chance to shine at the Sr. Bowl and there are a ton of DL in this draft.

  13. Sea Mode says:

    Lindstrom
    Patterson
    Prince
    Taylor
    Udoh

    looked good to me in foot shuffle (?) drills. Lindstrom and Patterson the best.

    Nice. Josh Miles with the 36″ vert @ 6-5, 314!

  15. Volume12 says:

    Stanford LB Bobby Okereke has DE length. Good lord.

  16. Volume12 says:

    Off topic, but did y’all head what Chad Johnson did for some random on twitter? Need more people like that in this world.

    Last Friday he asked his feed how everyone’s morning was going. One replied with ‘facing eviction, but it’s Friday so… (shrug emoji). Johnson replied with ‘Eviction? Show me the notice and we’ll take care of tbis.’ Dude showed him, Ocho PayPal’d him over $1,500 and said ‘next time your late on your rent tell your landlord to play me for it in a game of FIFA.’

    Real one there folks. He never forget what it was like to struggle. Awesome stuff.

  17. HawksBill says:

    Am I remembering it wrong or didn’t the NFL.com combine list used to be sortable by prospect grade?
    Can’t see the grade number unless you click the players name.

    • Rob Staton says:

      You remember correctly. They’ve made a total dogs dinner of the site with the changes this year. The layout has gone from easy to access and read to a complete muddle.

  18. Sea Mode says:

    So here’s my top 3 OL of the second group after looking at the numbers and watching the drills (missed the first group unfortunately). I’m omitting Taylor as totally out of our range.

    I am very interested in Chris Lindstrom. He looks like one of the few with length, movement, and on target to hit the right TEF mark. Outstanding day for him.

    Also interested in Oli Udoh. He looks like a big project, but should be close to wTEF mark and moved well in a few of the drills. Kind of like a lesser version of Ifedi anyone?

    Mentioned him the other day and glad to see him catch Rob’s attention too: Isaiah Prince. Really impressive build and looks like he can move. Not quite as TEF as the other two though. Gonna have to go back to the tape on him. (luckily should be easy to do with him blocking for Haskins)

    Side note 1: I can’t believe how many of the OL prospects DNP in the vert. Gonna suck for TEF. 😥 I mean, get your butt out there (no, not literally, Javon Patterson…) and compete. Hopefully they will at least jump at their pro days.

    Side note 2: sorry for the disarray of comments, but the delay is strong today. Took over an hour for the site to last update.

  19. Sea Mode says:

    Wow, Rob, your guy Ryquell Armstead! 4.46 at 5112, 220 is awesome!

  20. Sea Mode says:

    A couple nice early TEF scores:

    Andre Dillard: 3.13 TEF, 98.51 wTEF
    Kaleb McGary: 3.02 TEF, 95.68 wTEF

  21. Volume12 says:

    I don’t think he’s gonna test the same, but Jerry Tillery and Dion Jordan are almost the same size.

    He might be a weird dude, but I’d stand on the table for Tillery.

    • H says:

      Agreed, and I quite like his personality tbh.

      And yeah I’m definitely intrigued about him as a big 5 tech on early downs.

  22. Volume12 says:

    Georgia HB Elijah Holyield with a 4.79?!?

    Not the least bit surprised with Benny Snell’s time. He’s a pioneer and always reminded me of Elijah Hood.

  23. King_Rajesh says:

    DK Metcaff apparently did 27 reps on the bench as a WR.

    If the neck is fine and the 40 time comes in good, Russell could use a WR like this guy.

    • Volume12 says:

      If he tests anywhere close to what he’s rumored to, he’s the 1st WR off the board. Would be surprised to see him slip past 15. Could see Jon Gruden liking him a lot.

    Anyone know where Miles Sanders is likely to go? Dude looks silky smooth.

  25. H says:

    I’ve not watched him at all, and he’s a smaller back, but Justice Hill was an explosive tester. 4.42 40, 40″ vert, 10’8″ broad and 21 bench reps for good measure.

      I mentioned Seattle needing to tap into this TE class, but they HAVE to tap into this O-line class. It’s pretty loaded IMO.

      • Kenny Sloth says:

        It’s a very balanced class outside of QB, WR, CB, and RB

      • Kenny Sloth says:

        Maybe safety is a bit lacking too, but a safety class hasnt excited me in years

      • Sea Mode says:

        I’m super impressed by Chris Lindstrom. Dominated at Sr. Bowl and now checks all the boxes at the Combine.

        Looks like he would definitely have to be our first pick though if we want him, so I’m not sure about that. Maybe they look for more of a project type a bit later.

    • Sea Mode says:

      And here are a couple more. I filled in the missing drills for a couple guys who DNP with the class average 28.7 vert and 25 bench reps, because they were good in the drills they did do:

      Miles, Joshua: 3.11 TEF, 97.78 wTEF
      Nijman, Yosh: 3.1 TEF, 100.5 wTEF
      McGovern, Connor: 3.08 TEF, 94.77 wTEF

      Josh Niles at 314 lbs. had a 36″ vert. That’s the best jump for an OL in Combine history.

      Yosh Nijman had the 2nd best short shuttle (after Andre Dillard) of the entire OL class at 324 lbs. and an outstanding 9’6″ broad jump.

  27. Sea Mode says:

    Hmmm, so for RBs it looks pretty narrowed down as far as Combine participants go:

    Alex Barnes: 6003, 226, 4.59 40yd, 38.5 vert, 10’6″ broad
    Damien Harris: 5101, 216, 4.58 40yd, 37 vert, 10’1″ broad
    (Rodney Anderson: 6003, 224)

    Armstead was not explosive, even less so than Penny, but he did run the exact same 40yd time as Penny and appears to have the attitude the Seahawks look for in RBs. I’ll give that a chance any day.

    I might also give Miles Sanders a shot if we think he can add a few pounds, seeing he looked smooth in drills and good catching.

    FB Alec Ingold was also quite explosive for his size. Firmly on the radar.

    The bottom line: looks like we need to check out the film on this Alex Barnes kid! Luckily for us, there is a full 2018 season highlights on YT:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1d5LV1cGBMU

    Had nice stats in 2018 (256 carries, 1355 yds, 5.3 ypc, 12 TD), albeit I understand against pretty weak defenses in that conference? (somebody correct me if I’m wrong on that)

  28. JamesP says:

    I’ve watched a couple of Florida games this year and come away impressed with Scarlett. He had a fantastic game against South Carolina (watched it for Deebo Samuel). I’ve seen him talked about as a change of pace kind of guy but he plays much bigger and more physical than that would suggest.

  29. Volume12 says:

    I’m a huge fan of Arizona St. WR N’Keal Harry, even if there’s holes in his game. AKA the contested catch monster. So glad to see him get out to a good start with 27 reps on the BP.

    Said he loves imposing his will on CBs and thinks he’ll be an elite blocking wideout. Also talked about his ability to add value as a PR.

  30. Josh says:

    deep draft class this year. Lots of options. Going to be interesting to find out who are the guys Seattle has to have. I was listening to a Carroll interview about how they were sweating if they would get Dissly where they needed to draft him because he was one they had to have.

  31. Josh says:

    Imo a lot of offensive linemen will go in the first round. The class seems pretty good to me

  32. Sea Mode says:

    Wow. Sincerely hope everybody’s ok.
