They are sure well-designed and executed physical training can make players faster. "So when we got out here, it was kind of a muscle memory type deal". The NFL's laboratorial testing hub is littered with names both familiar and obscure.

Groups 10 is comprised of corners and Group 11 is safeties and hybrid defensive backs-but with minimal needs at these positions, Detroit will most likely be looking for Day 3 draft prospects to help build overall depth. Let's start with Primetime, because while you may have already heard this oft-told tale, you may not have.

Lucas Oil Stadium was nearly library-like Saturday as the first group of quarterbacks and receivers paired up for drills. In fact, they could draft one as early as the first round, especially if Kyle Fuller departs for greener pastures in free agency. Nobody saw him again. Even more noteworthy was the 4.91 run by Da'Ron Payne.

"My confidence level is going to say I'm the best player", Chubb said at his podium interview at the Combine. "I'm very confident. I don't feel any pressure to run fast". "That's what we do is we throw the football, so coming in here, I thought, 'Why not?'"

But aside from the incredible charity shown by Eisen and the rest of his supporters, one of the best parts of the "Run Rich Run" segment is the simulcasts put together by the NFL Network. He said his calf cramped up near the end of the run. Scouts estimated he would run a 4.6 in the 40 entering the season but on Monday he clocked in at 4.35 seconds.

They barely missed the fastest 40 time for an Alabama player at the combine (since the existence of complete records in 2000). He would give the Falcons some athletic value in the later rounds. His 4.4 time in the 40-yard dash was better than Ezekiel Elliott's 4.47 and his 41-inch vertical jump was higher than Odell Beckham Jr.'s 38½. It also equaled his twin brother Shaquil (a 198-pound cornerback with the Seattle Seahawks)'s combine time a year ago.

On Sunday, Arizona's Dane Cruikshank and Wisconsin's Natrell Jamerson tied for the best showing among the defensive backs.

Dontari Poe is Shakespearean poetry in motion. Derwin James out of Florida State was right there with him, running a 4.48 40-yard dash. It was last announced that the amount raised for St. Jude's was over $600,000 from the Run, Rich, Run event, which is absolutely incredible.

Gerald Sensabaugh tests positive for getting extremely high. It directly mirrors where the entire league has focused, using five and sometimes six defensive backs on 50-percent or more of snaps in a regular season game.
