2020 Combine day one — QB, TE, WR

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 comprehensive review.

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

Forty times

Tight ends

Devin Asiasi — 4.80 & 4.74
Jacob Breeland — DNP
Harrison Bryant — 4.74 & DNP
Hunter Bryant — 4.75 & 4.77
Josiah Deguara — 4.73 & 4.74
Brycen Hopkins — 4.67 & 4.75
Dalton Keane — 4.73 & 4.72
Cole Kmet — 4.70 & 4.71
Sean McKeon — DNP
Thaddeus Moss — DNP
CJ O’Grady — 4.81 & 4.83
Albert Okwuegbunam — 4.49 & 4.50
Colby Parkinson — 4.78 & 4.84
Jared Pinkney — 5.00 & 4.96
Stephen Sullivan — 4.66 & 4.67
Charle Taumoepeau — 4.75 & 4.79
Adam Trautman — 4.79 & 4.80
Mitchell Wilcox — 4.88 & 4.95
Charlie Woerner — 4.79 & 4.81
Dom Wood-Anderson — 4.94 & 4.92

The Seahawks were paying attention to Hunter Bryant’s forty (note Pete Carroll’s point). They also, seemingly, have some fancy new technology…

Albert Okwuegbunam ran a 4.49 which is superb at his size (nearly 6-6 and 258lbs). The big question with Okwuegbunam is he was deciding between a medical career and a football career. Clearly, he’s a terrific athlete.

Here are the official forty times:

Tight end broad jumps

Dalton Keene — 10-5
Cole Kmet — 10-3
Stephen Sullivan — 10-3
Charlie Taumoepeau — 10-1
Charlie Woerner — 10-0
CJ O’Grady — 9-11
Dom Wood-Anders — 9-11
Brycen Hopkins — 9-8
Devin Asiasi — 9-7
Hunter Bryant — 9-7
Josiah Deguara — 9-7
Adam Trautman — 9-6
Mitchell Wilcox — 9-4
Harrison Bryant — 9-2
Colby Parkinson — 9-1

Tight end vertical jumps

Cole Kmet — 37 inches
Stephen Sullivan — 36.5 inches
Charlie Taumoepeau — 36.5 inches
Josiah Deguara — 35.5 inches
Dom Wood-Anders — 35 inches
Adam Trautman — 34.5 inches
Charlie Woerner — 34.5 inches
Dalton Keene — 34 inches
CJ O’Grady — 34 inches
Brycen Hopkins — 33 inches
Harrison Bryant — 32.5 inches
Hunter Bryant — 32.5 inches
Colby Parkinson — 32.5 inches
Mitchell Wilcox — 31 inches
Devin Asiasi — 30.5 inches

To compare, Nick Vannett jumped a 30.5 inch vertical and Will Dissly jumped a 28 inch vertical.

Now here’s the all-important short shuttle and three cone times. This is what the Seahawks seemingly pay a great deal of attention to. Anything in the 4.4’s or faster is pretty good:

Short shuttle times

Dalton Keene — 4.19
Charlie Taumoepeau — 4.27
Adam Trautman — 4.27
Brycen Hopkins — 4.28
CJ O’Grady — 4.34
Josiah Deguara — 4.35
Harrison Bryant — 4.37
Cole Kmet — 4.41
Mitchell Wilcox — 4.43
Hunter Bryant — 4.46
Colby Parkinson — 4.46
Stephen Sullivan — 4.62
Dom Wood-Anders — DNP
Charlie Woerner — DNP
Devin Asiasi — DNP

For comparison — Vannett ran a 4.20 and Dissly ran a 4.40.

Three cone times

Adam Trautman — 6.78
Charlie Taumoepeau — 7.00
Dalton Keene — 7.07
Hunter Bryant — 7.08
Josiah Deguara — 7.15
Colby Parkinson — 7.15
Charlie Woerner — 7.18
Brycen Hopkins — 7.25
CJ O’Grady — 7.30
Mitchell Wilcox — 7.37
Harrison Bryant — 7.41
Cole Kmet — 7.44
Stephen Sullivan — 7.51
Dom Wood-Anders — DNP
Devin Asiasi — DNP

Again for comparison — Vannett ran a 7.05 and Dissly ran a 7.07.

Wide receivers

Neither Tee Higgins (‘resting’) or KJ Hamler (hamstring) are testing today.

The big name receivers tested brilliantly in the vertical jump:

Donovan Peoples-Jones — 44.5
Jalen Reagor — 42
Henry Ruggs — 42

Brandon Aiyuk — 40
Denzel Mims — 38.5
Justin Jefferson — 37.5

Jalen Reagor — 11-6
Henry Ruggs — 10-11
Denzel Mims — 10-11
Brandon Aiyuk — 10-8
Chase Claypool — 10-6
Justin Jefferson — 10-6
Ceedee Lamb — 10-4

  1. Sea Mode

    Your boy Asiasi about to get us kicked off!

    • Sea Mode

      A bit disappointing for Hunter Bryant there.

      • Sea Mode

        Kmet looks impressive and ran pretty good for his size. Looked so much smaller to me on tape.

        And then they show that he’s a multi-sport guy, which we know Seattle values…

        • Eburgz

          The fact he played baseball as his primary sport is a key part of his evaluation I think. He’s raw but also a natural athlete and catcher of the football. Tested and measured as expected. He’s probably the only tight end I’d be ok with us taking with one of our first 3 picks (troutman maybe)

          Not a good tight end class at all. Smart move to be aggressive with Olsen

      • drewdawg11

        I posted in another article that he would run between 4.68 and 4.78 or so. He’s exactly where I thought he would be. He plays faster than that by a little bit, but he’s never been a 4.5 guy.

  2. Starhawk29

    Is Hunter Bryant’s time official? NFL.com has it as 4.60

    • Rob Staton

      NFL.com is wrong

      • Starhawk29

        Typical haha

  3. bigten

    Does that time for A Ok put him in first round discussions? Definitely is slower than i expected Hunter to run, and faster than i thought Harrison would run. Im still very intrigued by Harrison Bryant.

    • Rob Staton

      No — no way R1. It’s a really good time but a lot of question marks with Albert O.

  4. Sea Mode

    Wow, Albert O… And here’s what I wrote about him on first look back in October:

    The last guy I am at least interested in seeing more of is Missouri TE Albert Okwuegbunam (“Albert O”). Big bubba at 6-5, 260. Has a build that reminds me of a less-muscular Jimmy Graham. Good high pointing the ball and in contested catch situations. Just seems like a solid all-around player. Not the fastest, but still effective down the seam. Apparently he came in at 215 lbs. and went up to 260 in just a year. 11 TD as a true freshman is impressive. He is a Junior this year.

    “not the fastest” lol…

    Stephen Sullivan looked good to me as well. Incredible length and should be able to add even more muscle. And then there’s his backstory:


  5. Sea Mode

    Clock looks to me like it’s stopping way after they cross the line…

    • Von

      I was thinking the same thing, but I’d guess it’s a TV thing.

  6. Aaron Bostrom

    Can’t wait to see the receivers run!!

  7. Von

    Before seeing how smooth he looks in the rest of the drills, I’m also on the Sullivan train. Looked explosive and with that length? 😍

  8. Sea Mode

    Oooh, I missed the little point by PC. Good eye, Rob.

    After getting a closer look at the body types and the way they moved, I’m most interested in Stephen Sullivan, Cole Kmet, Devin Asisasi and (obligatory) Albert O.

    • TomLPDX

      What was the point? I missed it and would like to know.

      • Sea Mode

        Rob embedded the video in the article above. Hunter Bryant was about to run. JS was distracted with something else and PC pointed his attention to the field.

  9. Sea Mode

    Eisen with a couple cheeky remarks already, banging on trash cans and Chris Jones “bursting onto the scene at the Combine”…

    Let’s hope he doesn’t get bored too fast this year, or it’s gonna get bad… 😂

    • Volume12

      Sometimes ya just gotta let it all hang out. Relatable.

      • Sea Mode

        Leave it all on the field…

        • Volume12

          Every inch.

  10. Sea Mode

    Um, did anyone actually try this with the sled before they decided to do it live on primetime national TV?

    My money’s on a fat “no”.

    take off those 45’s

    at the last second…

  11. Davido

    Parkinson looked good with the sled. Interesting since his blocking skills are a huge question mark.

  12. Rob Staton

    Whose stupid idea was it to make this prime time?

    • Sea Mode


      • Rob Staton

        The sled drill is embarrassing. Nobody knows what to do.

        • Volume12

          The only drill I was excited about was the figure 8.

          The gauntlet and W drill defeat the purpose.

          • Rob Staton

            Why have they started with the TE’s too?

            If you want a primetime, great audience — start at 6pm and kick off with the QB’s or this great WR class.

            • Sea Mode

              I have zero answers to any of that.

            • Volume12

              Good question.

  13. Sea Mode

    Sullivan with a really rough go in the first gauntlet run. Yikes.

    • Von

      Keene has looked good thus far.

    • Sea Mode

      Kmet with a beautiful gauntlet. Smooth, easy hands.

      Hunter Bryant ran fast and with great body control, but fought the ball.

      Parkinson and Dalton Keene looked good as well.

      Sullivan much better 2nd time around.

      • Davido

        Kmet looks really good so far. Also like Parkinson you don’t recognize his size during the drills. Just looks a bit slim. I wonder if he would look as good after a bit of bulk.

      • Barry

        Dalton Keene looks very promising. Going to get some of his tape in tonight.

  14. Greg Haugsven

    Stephen Sullivan with good times. Hunter Bryant probably just cost himself some money as he need to unhook the trailer.

    • Mark Souza

      You can say that again. Smaller tight end who’s not a great blocker who was touted for his speed creating mismatches in the passing game, but it turns out he doesn’t really have much speed.

  15. Volume12

    Netane Muti with 44 BP reps!

    Isaiah Wilson with 26. Great # for his length. Same for ‘Cush’ with 25. And Matt Peart with 26.

    John Simpson with 34. Damn.

    • Rob Staton

      Isn’t Muti a T-Rex though? Helps with the bench.

      • Volume12

        Yeah his arms are short. Anytime you put up the 5th or 6th best #’s it’s impressive no matter how we slice it.

  16. Volume12

    IF Seattle did in fact meet with ‘Beast’ aka Hunter Bryant, are paying close attention to his testing, and we know JS scouted the Apple Cup in person, is there fire with all this smoke?

    Was Olsen a hedge for him?

    • Rob Staton

      No! It’s OK to like certain players, pay attention to their combine. Maybe be prepared to take them in a certain value range. Not every player you like is a ‘target’ though.

      • Sea Mode


        On the positive side, he finally showed something good today on that corner route. Ability to really put his foot in the ground and change directions explosively.

  17. Von

    Pinkney has looked atrocious in every way.

    • Sea Mode


    • Sea Mode

      Only Wilcox there to compete with him for worst TE performance at the Combine.

      • Von

        Wilcox had no business even being there really

  18. Rob Staton

    They keep saying on the broadcast they expected a faster time from Hunter Bryant.

    He ran a 4.82 at SPARQ.

    His test is the short shuttle — the one that matters — not the forty.

    • Davido

      He also looks the part physically during the catching drills. I feel a stampede through TV.

    • Von

      Have they posted those numbers for the TE’s yet? I’m interested in the vertical as well.

      • Rob Staton

        Not yet. They’ll be doing those tests now.

  19. Darnell

    Will Claypool qualify as a local visit for the Seahawks being from British Columbia, or is it based upon the location of the college? (Notre Dame: Chicago).

    • Sea Mode

      Each NFL team is designated three local Football Bowl Subdivision schools, including at least one in a Power Five conference whose players they can administer medical examinations to without counting against the 30 pre-Draft visits. There are also rules preventing teams from evaluating players physical (ie. testing, timing) if they provide transportation to the player, regardless of where they’re from or went to school.

      Players from colleges within a 50-mile radius of team headquarters also don’t count against a given club’s 30-player limit.


      • Darnell


  20. Sea Mode

    Wow. 15 reps from Hamler is seriously impressive.

    • Von

      yeah, very nice. Too bad he’s not gonna run. Same with Higgins.

      • Sea Mode

        Just heard that. Hammy for Hamler, but just “resting” for Higgins. This is getting really annoying.

        • Rob Staton

          If I were a GM — I might ‘rest’ Higgins from my draft board.

      • Davido

        Such a shame! Hamler looks very fast on tape faster than his 4.43 in the SPARQ I think.

  21. CHawk Talker Eric

    It never fails that my professional schedule goes crazy at the most inconvenient times. I wish I could follow the Combine myself, participate in the SDB message boards, swap perspectives, share information, shoot the breeze about the prospects, watch Sea Mode beat me to posting the scoops again and again (you’re too fast for me buddy), etc.

    Well at least I have Rob’s elite level analysis and information to keep me informed. His Combine primer from a few days ago was excellent. Truly benchmark level stuff.

    I wish I could spend all day with this stuff, and lately I’ve been too exhausted at night to participate. But just know my heart and mind is with y’all at this most wonderful time of the year.

    • Rob Staton

      Appreciate it man!

    • Sea Mode

      I feel you. I got hit during the actual draft last year.

      Anyways, I just post as I see and look if others are seeing the same thing or differently, all with a Seahawks taint, of course. So I’m glad to see the same things posted again.

      That said, the QBs are running 40s and it is midnight. I’m out. So you will be beating me from here on out.😁

      Rob, you’re a trooper, but definitely take care of yourself. We need you going strong through the whole draft season!

  22. Rob Staton

    Brandon Aiyuk — 40 inch vertical

    • Von

      There ya go. Another check in the box.

  23. Volume12

    Cincy TE/H-back Josiah Deguara has had one hell of a combine so far. Tons of versatility too.

  24. Von

    Claypool @ 4.45 at that size is tremendous

    • Volume12

      His senior bowl was great too. The way he uses/sets up his rocker steps is some of the best I’ve seen from these wideouts so far.

    • Volume12

      With an NFL weight & conditioning program behind him, we might soon be seeing a 245-250 pound man running a 4.5 down the seam for someone. What a freakin’ weapon.

  25. Volume12

    Chase Claypool at 238 lbs running a 4.45 is f***in’ incredible!

    • Volume12

      Wish I could say Duvernay running a 4 flat was surprising, but it ain’t. His tape more than shows it.

      • Volume12

        Great time for LSU’s Justin Jefferson.

    • Volume12

      He lowered it?!? 🔥🔥

    • Trevor

      Love it! Running that time at that size is almost D.K. territory. A more physical Evan Engram perhaps. Sad part is he is likely going to move up too early into the 2nd to be in the Seahawks range.

  26. Von

    Auiyk in the 4.5’s is a little surprising. Takes him out of what the Hawks usually take early. I know he’s a freak with length and explosion, but slower than I would have thought.

    • SoCal12

      Conversely, I wonder if Justin Jefferson at 4.44 put him on our radar.

      • Volume12

        Shoulda been on it already honestly.

        • Von

          Concur. He reminds me of Michael Thomas.

          • Volume12

            He’d fit Seattle perfectly even though they aren’t a heavy 3 WR set team

            • Aaron Bostrom

              Ya I was not expecting that time from Jeff. Pretty impressive! He seems really solid. Well, he can be on our radar now, and if he goes earlier, he’ll hopefully push guys like Aiyuk and Reagor back in the draft a bit.

  27. Volume12

    Go get Claypool KC!

    • Trevor

      I so want the Hawks to draft him this year! I have been talking about him for months but mostly because he is a Canuck and I knew he was really explosive but I never saw that 40 time coming.

      • Volume12

        I don’t think anyone did. Not at that size. He’s gonna be good. The SR bowl sold me on him, this a bow wrapped neatly on a present.

      • Von

        I know Trevor! You have been on him for some time. Good call thus far. TE convert or just line him up in the slot and create mis-matches.

        • Trevor

          Hey could use him in an Evan Engram type role. Too big for most slot CB to cover and too fast for most LB. He knows how to use his body in the red zone and high point the ball too.

          Also a great special teamer which we know PC / JS look for.

          • Volume12

            And what does Russ always do? Throws the deep and jump balls. Play to gis strengths.

      • Eburgz

        I though you or someone on this blog tipped that he was running 4.4’s during combine training. I wasn’t surprised but I am impressed. Jefferson ran faster than I thought and the tape is GOOD.

  28. Volume12

    I brought up Michigan’s Donovan Peoples-Jones last week for a reason. Highly under utilized and under rated.

    My man just hit a 44.5″ vert ya’ll 👀

    • Von

      Wow. Thats very impressive. I wouldn’t have thought he had that type of burst. Time for me to go back to the tape.

    • Trevor

      Nice call! Conservatives offense and awful QB play would have really impacted his production I assume.

    • Eburgz

      Been watching him for a couple years. Love his name. I call him “The People’s Jones” and my girlfriend hates it when he catches the ball because I won’t shut up. I also call Aaron Jones “the peoples Jones” for whatever reason.

      I’m always surprised at the lack of production from that guy but he is obviously a top athlete and has a great frame. One to monitor.

  29. Rob Staton

    I’ve posted the tight end vertical jump marks.

    • Trevor

      Anyone really standing out to you Rob in the TE group?

      • Rob Staton

        Nobody. Kmet and Hunter Bryant looked the smoothest in drills but the words that came to mind watching the class was ‘crap’ and ‘boring’.

        • Trevor

          As expected I guess. I think it is part of the reason they went after Olsen so hard. Next years TE class looks stacked.

          • Greg Haugsven

            Sullivan was looking solid until his 3 cone and short shuttle.

  30. Trevor

    Is Justin Jefferson the most under rated WR in this draft class? Almost has a Mike Thomas vibe about him. Just knows how to get open and faster than I expected.

    • Von

      That’s how I see it. Hightower from Boise St has also looked really smooth and quick.

      • Von

        The top 4 fastest WR are in the 2nd group I think. Will be interesting to see. I wish they’d show more of the jumps.

  31. Volume12

    That’s a great vert for RAY-GER as he says.

    Saw someone on twitter say that more than 1 scout thinks he’s got more upside than CeeDee Lamb. That’s because he does. Is his floor higher? Ehh. Debatable. The ceiling certainly is.

    Used to be the NBA drafted purely on upside and potential (not that that’s all he is). Now that trend has carried over to the NFL.

    • Von

      What did he jump?

      • Volume12

        42″ and had an 11’6″ broad

        • Von

          Those are great numbers. Vol, what’s your O/U number on his 40? I’ll set the line at 4.34.

          • Volume12

            Over. At 4.38

            • Kenny Sloth

              Man has he jumped out of our range (literally)

            • Von

              I’ll take the under for $20 Alex 😬

    • icb12

      No doubt about Reagors upside.

      But I keep coming back to the fumbles. 6 fumbles this year in 77 touches.

      We knock Jonathan Taylor for 6 fumbles in 346 touches, but Reagor had a serious problem putting the ball on the ground this year.

      • Volume12

        Wow. I didn’t even know that. A bit concerning for sure, but I’m not sure that trumps the talent and athleticism if given the chance to pull the trigger.

        • Eburgz

          They literally took him off of kick returns because he was putting the ball on the ground this year. It’s an issue for him and it’s been mentioned here before.

      • KD


  32. Rob Staton

    Short shuttle and three cone times now posted on the blog for the TE’s.

    • Volume12

      Any tape on Charlie Taumoepeau? Might be a really solid, later day 3 pick. Would be an absolute steal as an UDFA.

      • Greg Haugsven

        Dalton Keene with some monster numbers

  33. Trevor

    Claypool had a 40.5 inch vertical at almost 240lbs. Combine that with his 4.43 40 and you are talking a serious freak athlete.

  34. Von

    Anthony Gordon has looked better than Fromm tonight.

    • AndrewP

      At this rate I don’t think Jake Fromm is in the NFL in two years

      • KD

        I agree with Pauline’s take on Fromm: He’s only as good as the team around him. He’s not the kind of QB who elevates a team around him to greatness.

    • J

      He is better than Fromm so no suprise there.

  35. CaptainJack

    Claypool is officially on my radar.

  36. Rob Staton

    Daniel Jeremiah is not funny.

    • Trevor

      I miss Mayock.

  37. Trevor

    Denzel Mims with a 4.40 is huge. He is going to be a be a really good NFL WR and TD machine. Kenny Golliday 2.0

    • SoCal12

      Strong Senior Bowl and great 40. Probably one of the biggest risers through this process. I wonder how early he’ll go.

      • Trevor

        I think end of round #2 is the absolute floor.

  38. KD

    Just checked Walterfootball’s list of team visits. Just updated, and the list for the Seahawks so far is:

    Bradley Anae – Utah
    Zach Baun – Wisconsin
    Ross Blacklock – TCU
    Hunter Bryant – Washington
    AJ Dillon – Boston College
    Yetur Gross-Matos – Penn State
    Julian Okwara – Notre Dame
    Jalen Reagor – TCU ( My guy 🙂 )
    Logan Stenberg – Kentucky ( Oh YEAH!)

    • Spencer

      Would be ecstatic with any of these guys except Blacklock.

      • KD

        Keep an eye out for multiple visits. that will be a huge indicator

      • Eburgz

        Watch some more Blacklock. He was borderline dominant at times.

        Go watch a couple games of the guys you like (Raekwon Davis or whoever) then go out on some of the TCU games. Rob’s criticism of Blacklock is kinda a strength for me because he has the speed/quickness to move down the line and explode through gaps that he doesn’t start at. But he still has the power to go through guys if needed.

        Length could be an issue for sure though. Not the kind of frame the hawks have looked for.

        • Rob Staton

          He’s not using speed and quickness to move down the line. He is working on designed stunts or he’s being allowed to freelance. Stunts are not easily translatable to NFL production and freelancing is extremely rare at defensive tackle in the NFL. Especially when you’re doing what he does — which is basically checking each gap to see if the door’s open.

          The snark about Raekwon Davis is unnecessary and unwelcome. Because he’s anchoring the Alabama line, playing with great leverage at 6-7, lining up at DE, controlling his gaps and defending the run extremely well. These are all things we know the Seahawks value in their one-gap system. Quite aside from the fact they’ve never drafted a DL with sub-33 inch arms, Blacklock isn’t showing any gap discipline when he’s moving around the line all the time.

  39. Volume12

    Henry Ruggs with a sub 4.3. lmao. WR1 for me

    • Trevor

      Ruggs has a Tyreek Hill look to him the way he almost glides when he runs. He is going to be long gone by #27 unfortunately.

      • Volume12

        Oh yeah. I’d take him over Jeudy and Lamb. That’s just me though.

        • Davido

          Where does the love for such speed come from? I mean Tyreek is THE speedster in the NFL and even he is not the WR1 in the league. Most of the very very good WR are not the fastest.
          Looking at the tape I don’t see how you can put Ruggs over Jeudy/Lamb.

          • Volume12

            I had him #1 before this. Just confirms it for me is all.

            I don’t see anything special from Lamb at all. I think he’s gonna struggle against much more physical corners than he played against in the BIG 12. Has he ever seen a good press? Doubt it.

            Jeudy? Don’t see a WR1 at all. Pure slot guy. Then again, wiry frame. You want that over the middle? Thought he hurt his offense against LSU. The NFL like reps he’ll see BTW.

            Ruggs is a game changer man. Give .e guys who take the top off a defense and flip the field. He’s also gonna make guys miss much more than those other 2. Underrated route runner. Will force defenses to cheat and his speed will dictate coverages. I think he’s a much better fit in the current model of the NFL with the manufactured touches we see.

            • Davido

              Okay fair enough. If you dislike both Jeudy and Lamb then Ruggs must be WR1. Im just suprised because the “taking the top off” skill is rare but not as rare as elite x receivers. Guys like Mecole Hardman can do just that too. I don’t think the difference between guys in the 4.35 ranges and 4.28 is that visable on the field.

              • Volume12

                No, your right. It really isn’t. Ruggs game is predicated on speed and his terrific foot speed though, no?

                Loved Mecole Hardman. Championed him all last fall and evrn said I thought KC was the ideal team for a guy w/ his skill set.

                I also love the Deebo’s, Lockett’s, Steve Smith’s of the world. Chip on shoulder, gritty, play bigger than their size.

                Seattle for example. Able to play like they do and stay in every game for a mtitude of reasons, but one that goes unmentioned is the type of receivers they deploy. The guys like Ruggs that let them flip the field quickly because the defense has to cover so much ground and as you know, that ain’t easy in shells and a helmet for 50 odf minutes. Spees kills as corny as it sounds.

                • Volume12

                  And that was riddled with spelling errors. Embarassing. My apologies.

          • Volume12

            And I know this comes across as anti Jeudy. I’m not. I think he’s an exceptional route runner. Wouldn’t shock me to see him play 10 + in the NFL at a high level. However, I don’t think he’ll ever be the guy people want him to be nor he will live up to a top 10 selection.

            If I’m wrong? Ill come be right here to eat crow.

  40. drewdawg11

    The good news is he was always going earlier than 27, so this doesn’t change anything. Pittman running 4.52 is about where I felt he would be. He’s great when he gets the ball in the open field for a big dude. Reagor’s first 40 was as much of a letdown as 4.47 could be. 4.50 on his second run? He definitely doesn’t play at that time. He’s exciting.

  41. Dan

    Reagor as a 4.5 guy is a surprise. He killed everything else though.

    • Rob Staton

      He did run a 4.47 forty but yes — I thought we’d see faster.

  42. Jace

    Wow Reagor tested off the charts. Was fun picturing him in a Hawks uniform before the combine, but I think he goes way too early now.

    • Bigten

      I would disagree. A lot of weight is held in the 40 time, and his wasn’t great. I think that will allow us to move down and still grab him if we want. Just my opinion tho.

      • Brazilian Hawk

        Hot take:

        He’s gonna go in the same range Tyler Lockett went in 2015.

      • Volume12

        What’s his 10 & 20? If that’s low it’ll impact his stock big time. He proved todat he’s not explosive. Fast? Nah.

        • Volume12

          God dammit.

          Proved today he IS explosive.

          • Jace

            Something to remember with Reagor is that he weighs 206 pounds. That’s why I’m not too worried about the 40. He’s not a twig like Hollywood Brown was last year. Sooo explosive.

  43. Tom Lynch

    Jalen Reagor comparable to Golden Tate?
    Reagor 5’ 11” 206. Arm Length 31 3/8. 40 4.47. Broad 11’ 6”. Vertical 42”. 17 BP
    Tate 5’ 10 1/4”. Arm length 30 1/2. 40 4.42. Broad 10’ Vertical 35” 17 BP

    • icb12

      I think Duvernay is more comparable to Tate.
      5-10, 200#, 30 5/8arms, 40 4.4 broad 10-3, vert 35.5

      Plus just the way he plays.

      He’s been my 2nd favorite receiver coming into today. And I think still is. I didn’t see anything here today to Change my mind – well maybe claypools performance.. Id take Duvernay in late Rd 2 or top 3 and be stoked.

      • Tom Lynch

        I will have to look more into Duvernay. Tate was my favorite receiver that Russ has had. I just love Tate’s playstyle.

        • Michael Hasslinger

          Duvernay worries me. Pauline saw stiffness at the sr. bowl. Maybe a lingering injury. for a 5th round pick that speed will work on Teams and in 4 WR sets.

  44. Trevor

    The two big winners on my watch list today were Denzel Mims and Chase Claypool. Was a big fan of both before the combine and thought they would be great 3rd round targets for the Hawks.

    After today I would be really suprised if both do not go in the top 50 picks.

  45. CojackTX

    QB thoughts:

    Love and Montez both look very good in the drills. Both leave you wanting more on tape.

    I know nothing about Luton, but he appears to be accurate and has good zip.

    Cole McDonald is having about as bad of a performance as I can remember for a QB at the combine. Liked his film, but that is one unnatural throwing motion and he is under throwing guys by 10 yards out here.

  46. Jace

    Raegor’s and Ruggs 40’s stacked on top of one another. Interesting watch.


  47. AndrewP

    Dezmon Patmon with some great #s…

    4.49 40
    36” vert
    11’ broad…

    … all at 6’4, 225. Seriously begs the question: How was he not better in the Air Raid?

    • Michael Hasslinger

      Came out of nowhere. Interesting results.

  48. Steve Nelsen

    Things I Think I Learned Today

    1. We got the CB arm length measurements today and 6 met the 32” threshold. Lamar Jackson has been mentioned here but BoPete Keyes and Michael Ojemudia are added to the list as potential Day 3 targets.

    2. Pete Carroll says he is comfortable with Tre Flowers and Shaquille Griffin as starting CBs so I don’t expect Seattle to draft an outside corner on Day 1 or Day 2 or pursue any expensive veterans.

    3. Stephen Sullivan is big and fast and explosive. But, his short shuttle was terrible so he probably won’t be a Seahawk. Dalton Keene was a name I was unfamiliar with but he and Charlie Taumoepeau tested well.

    4. There are going to be lots of WRs for Seattle to choose from on Day 2. 20 ran in the 4.4s so there will also be some possibilities on Day 3.

    5. It is cool seeing Rob’s SDB pieces being quoted by draft writers. It is nice to see his talent being recognized by a broader audience.

  49. Von

    Keene was a guy that I mentioned last week or so. Looked great, but underutilized ontape. Not a huge need anymore, but a developmental TE late would be welcomed.

  50. DougM

    Checked out some of the highlights of the 4.0 and faster 40 times of wide receivers. Impressed with Antonio Gibson as receiver, running back and kick returner,
