After top running back prospect Saquon Barkley ran a 4.41 40-yard dash at the combine, the National Football League meshed together this video collage of recent running back performances including Barkley's. So after a strong performance at the NFL Combine, here are seven teams that should strongly consider trading up for Barkley in the upcoming draft to help improve their backfield.
Chase Goodbread of NFL Media relayed that draft analyst Chad Reuter - also of the NFL - believes the Broncos, Chargers, Jets, and Seahawks would be the best fits for the former West Georgia standout. There's absolutely no reason he should get past the Cleveland Browns' second first-round pick at No. 4.
The Colts will have other meetings with prospects but this one is significant because Barkley is proving to be worth the No. 3 overall pick if he is still there.
But Cappa's biggest performances came during the on-field workouts, where he proved once again that he's a big mountain of a man who can manhandle his competitors (see video below).
Lucas Oil Stadium will be pass-happy on Saturday as the quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends take the field at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. That is not much of a surprise considering how he was already projected to be a top-five pick and had a dominant showing in the NFL Scouting Combine. It was the most incredible thing I've ever seen. He finished with a disappointing 4.66 time. "I'm glad it's going on because the quarterback cannot have pressure, but if it doesn't have [a pocket] to step into, what's the point?" He also reached 41 inches in the vertical jump (the highest jump at his position) and ran a lateral-movement drill called the 20-yard shuttle in 4.24 seconds (eighth). Players will exchange their name for a number and get critiqued on every possible measuring analysis a scout can conjure up.
"Personally I feel like I'm a tackle, but I'm willing to play anywhere a team needs me", Williams said. "And you're like, this kid was just at prom last week and now he's doing that. I feel like now they are looking for guards who are more athletic than probably in previous years", Wynn said on Thursday. White's brother Kyzir, a defensive back at West Virginia, arrived at the combine Friday.
