Some Combine Measurables

Postby DarthMonk » Fri Feb 24, 2012 5:24 pm

RGIII: 6' 2", 223#
There were some that openly wondered if Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III was as tall as he was billed. Baylor listed Griffin at 6-foot-2, 220-pounds. Griffin hit those numbers as he was officially 6-foot-2 3/8 and 223 pounds. Any worries that Griffin was going to have a height issue were laid to rest. Griffin won't throw at the Combine, but he will do the athletic tests. He is a fantastic athlete who aims to run faster than 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash

Justin Blackmon: 6' 1" 207#
Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon (6-1, 207) was the same height as his listed measurement although he was eight pounds lighter. Blackmon made some news when he said he won't run the 40-yard dash because he pulled a hamstring in training. Blackmon's Pro Day is on March 9, so teams won't have to wait long to see Blackmon's 40 time.

Alshon Jeffrey: 6' 3", 216#
So much for the reports that South Carolina wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was pushing 250 pounds. At the 2012 NFL Combine, Jeffery checked in at 6-foot-3, 216-pounds, which is a significant drop compared to his listed measurements of 6-4 and 230 pounds. If Jeffery runs well, he could send a charge into his draft stock. At the very least from the weigh-in, Jeffery helped prove to teams that he is not lazy and takes his conditioning seriously. Jeffery (10 1/4) also tied for the second-largest hands of any receiver in Indianapolis.

Dwight Jones: 6' 3" 230#
North Carolina wide receiver Dwight Jones (6-3, 230) was the heaviest wide receiver at the Combine, weighing in four pounds heavier than a month ago. Jones had a disappointing Senior Bowl, so he needs to have a strong performance on the field Sunday. If he runs well, his weight won't be a problem, but if he has a slow 40 time, he could slide into the third day of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Offensive Line
By Charlie Campbell

Stanford standout guard David DeCastro (6-4, 316) impressed at the Combine just like he did on Saturdays throughout his collegiate career. DeCastro had a 40 time of 5.43 seconds and a 10-yard split at 1.82. He was very strong with and fluid in the field drills. He is a natural knee-bender, and his technique is phenomenal. DeCastro was athletic in all of the drills and made them look easy. DeCastro confirmed his high first-round grade in his Combine performance .

Iowa guard Adam Gettis had a blistering time of 1.65 in the 10-yard split and an unofficial 40 time of 4.91. That was the fastest time of the offensive linemen in the first group. Gettis also performed well in the vertical jump (31.5) and broad jump (9'4). He was the workout warrior of the offensive linemen. In the field drills, Gettis showed some flaws in his technique, but overall he helped get some attention with his standout performance at the Combine.

Georgia guard/tackle Cordy Glenn had an excellent 40 time of 5.15 and 1.76 in the 10-yard split. Considering that he weighs 345 pounds, his 40 time is extremely impressive. On the field, Glenn was solid, but still has some room for improvement. Specifically, his footwork needs to get better and quicker for NFL pass-rushers. Overall, Glenn confirmed his stock as a pick in the 20-40 range.

Baylor (RGIII's) center Philip Blake had a good day. He needed it after a moderately disappointing bench press performance on Friday (22 reps). Blake had a good 40 time of 5.09 and looked quick in the field drills. He was athletic and moved well with good knee bend. Blake's Combine should hold him steady as a mid-round pick.

Iowa left tackle Riley Reiff is the consensus second-rated tackle in the 2012 NFL Draft class. He ran the 40-yard dash in 5.23 seconds with a 10-yard split of 1.71. Those are quality times for him. Reiff moved well during the field drills. He was fluid with proper knee bend, and he is clearly a technician who has been well coached. Reiff (6-5, 313) had a solid overall Combine.

I thought the same thing about these exact players. DeCastro just looked like a stud out there today. Gattis was extremely fluid, and I've been very high on Blake for a while now. Would love to pick up Blake later in the draft. The guy would fit our offense like a glove and offer some familiarity for our new QB since they teamed up at Baylor together...
The two others I liked we're Mike Adams and Jeff Allen. Keep an eye on Allen's stock fly. This dude is good and relatively unknown. Glenn could be a great pickup as well for RT. he won't be drafted very high.

RGIII:

40 time = 4.38 in 19 strides. Top speed = 23.6 mph.

I also would like Blake very much. He is a very good shotgun snapper, has been RGIII's "butt buddy" and has prototypical size and build for the position.

He's also athletic as all hell. He's at the top of all the charts for each test.

2012 NFL Combine: Workout Recap - Quarterbacks
By Charlie Campbell

Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III did not throw at the Combine, but he made waves by running two blistering 40-yard dash sprints. Griffin (6-2, 223) showed his elite speed with an official time of 4.41 seconds. There were no doubts that he is a rare athlete for the position, but he quantified it in Indianapolis.

The favorite to be the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, ran two quick times in the 40 yard dash with his official time at 4.67. Luck (6-4, 234) has good mobility, so it is not surprising that he ran well at the Combine. Even though some have given Luck some grief, he has nothing to gain by throwing at the Combine, so it's understandable that Luck will wait until his Pro Day.

Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins (6-3, 214) threw well in the drills and may have helped himself. Cousins ran a 4.93 40, which was one of the slower times for any of the quarterbacks in the first group.

LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson showcased major athleticism. He ran fast and exhibited a strong arm in the throwing drills. He ran a 4.65. Jefferson (6-4, 223) has big size and a special skill set, but he was too erratic in college without significant production. However, the ball looks good coming out of his hands with nice velocity. Jefferson is a late-round pick who could be a developmental project and Wildcat quarterback.

Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson (5-11, 204) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.55 seconds. Wilson is a great athlete with a strong arm, but doesn't have the stature to be a starter in the NFL. Wilson threw some nice passes in the drills. Some teams could consider him as backup signal-caller who is a Wildcat quarterback with a package of plays in the offense.

Arizona quarterback Nick Foles (6-5, 243) looked strong throwing the ball, but that is not surprising as he has a big arm with a good release. Foles is heavy-footed without mobility; he is not a great athlete and ran a slow 40 at 5.14. It was the slowest time of any quarterback.

Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler (6-7, 242) did not participate in the Combine drills because of a foot sprain that he suffered in his December bowl game against Boise State. That seems a little questionable considering the injury is two months old and didn't require surgery.

Another potential first-round quarterback whom teams didn't get a look at was Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill. ESPN's Pat Yasinskas reported about 10 days ago that Tannehill would not participate in the on field drills, as he is still working his way back from foot surgery. Tannehill (6-4, 221) is expected to be 100 percent soon, and will work out for teams before the 2012 NFL Draft. One negative that was exposed in the Combine weigh-in was that Tannehill (9 inches) tied for the smallest hands of any of the quarterbacks.

If old Al Davis were still around, we'd know exactly where he was heading... but, somebody is going to want to test that speed in pads enough to take a shot on day 2...

Watching game film, however, I didn't see him outrun anybody. Pick in the End Zone... gets run down despite a 5 yard advantage...
