At the end of the day, the old National Football League adage - "the eye in the sky doesn't lie" - may full well apply to offensive tackle Orlando Brown, considered by many draft observers to be worthy of a first- or second-round pick.
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. According to NFL.com research, there have only been 4 players since 2003 to post slower times.
He also had a solid showing in the bench press (15 reps).
"My goal was six", acknowledged Griffin, who nearly doubled his previous high of 11 reps and surpassed the 17 his twin brother, Shaquille, managed at last year's combine before the Seattle Seahawks selected the speedy cornerback in the third round. He is listed by many draft experts as the best overall player in this draft and he might just be too good to pass up on.
Mayock said Barkley will dazzle teams even when he's not on his feet. He finished among the best in history in almost every drill he competed in. "And he's going to win games with his legs". Here are what I believe to be three options the Giants can/may consider doing in the upcoming draft. And this is where holding multiple second round picks has an advantage as the Jets might be able to move up and grab Hernandez, who could be a late Day 1 or an early Day 2 pick. This is all about competition. Because the other guys went out and ripped it pretty good. "Never", Mayfield said, adding that Brown didn't allow a sack last season. He also had 13 tackles for loss and has been considered one component of a deep class of defensive tackles in this year's draft.
There are a number of different ways the Giants can go, but what way is the right way?
It's hard to have a worse combine than Brown did.
Sam Darnold, USC: Darnold showed off his legs with a 4.85-second, 40-yard-dash time, but Mayock was disappointed he couldn't see the quarterback's arm: "I think he is [a competitor], I just wish he was throwing today, man".
The Niners now own the ninth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, set to take place this April, and the Raiders pick 10th. They want to go back to the competitive team they once were, and signing Kirk Cousins and drafting Nelson will do that.
After the Packers went 13 consecutive years without drafting a Badger, they've now done so twice in the last four drafts, selecting receiver Jared Abbrederis in 2014 and linebacker Vince Biegel last year.
