The Eagles are reported to rate Vander Esch quite highly, which is a rarity among this team and linebackers.
Everybody knew Combine would be a breeze for Barkley, a notoriously hard worker in the weight room. Griffin, who had his left hand amputated at the age of 4, has surpassed expectations most of his life and the Combine wasn't any different. They're the top two players on my big board, as well as prototypes for their respective positions. Griffin racked up a total of 195 tackles, three interceptions, five fumble recoveries with one for a touchdown and four forced fumbles, most of which all occurred in his final two seasons. His time of 4.70 seconds in the 40-yard dash ranked 57 among the defensive backs on Monday.
At the combine, Pleasant was looking at each player's "body mechanics, movement and overall athletic ability". They've endured a decades-long inability to find a quarterback, and 2017 was their lowest point yet, becoming the second team to go 0-16 in a season. Most importantly, Guice looked fully healthy and likely solidified first-round status. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds and impressed during the rest of his on-field drills. Maddox's time was the fastest in this drill during the combine. Yes, he was expected to run fast, but hype creates pressure on top prospects to perform up to expectations. Allen (right) showed an easy, smooth motion and launched some balls with his cannon of an arm easily. He was an offensive machine in college and threw with good velocity, accuracy, and didn't turn the ball over.
It's not a surprise Barkley turned heads considering the versatility he displayed at Penn State. His 40-inch vertical and 11-foot broad jump are off the charts for a man 215 pounds. If the Cleveland Browns don't land Kirk Cousins in free agency then they must draft a quarterback with the first pick of the draft.
Bradley Chubb was the headliner of a strong Wolfpack contingent at the Combine but Hill kind of stole the show with some of his numbers.
Today I am going to concentrate on the defensive side of the football.
While many stood out, here are six players who could look great in midnight green in 2018.
Quarterbacks generally are considered the players best equipped to guide teams through rebuilds. Peter King of The MMQB wrote that Rosen helped himself immensely during the process, especially in the interview rooms with National Football League front office personnel. On top of that, there's the 40 time of Shaquem Griffin, the weird world of Orlando Brown and whatever forces players to leave Miami early and then bomb the combine.
Disclaimer: by "for and against", I'm not saying, "do or don't draft Saquon Barkley".
If Darnold falls to the Giants, they may take the former USC star.
