Penn State's Saquon Barkley is a do-it-all running back


With the exception of Barkley, Chubb turned in perhaps the best overall workout by a back Friday, clocking in at 4.52 seconds with a 38.5-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot, 8-inch broad jump and matching the Penn State star with 29 repetitions in the bench press.

He didn't hit that mark, but it didn't mean the reviews weren't good.

Gesicki credits a rough sophomore year at Penn State for getting him to this stage.

"It really should", NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said. "Any team that wants to draft me and bless me with the opportunity to play for their franchise is a blessing".

We'll also look ahead to Day 2 of workouts, as the quarterbacks, receivers and tight ends will participate in testing and drills on Saturday.

How it's possible for a 233 pounder to out leap Julio Jones defies any logic, especially when one thinks back to the countless plays Jones makes leaping over the top of double coverage to haul in miraculous catches.

The only other SEC tight end at the combine, Mississippi State's Jordan Thomas, was fifth in the 40 at 4.74.

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. A lot of people are going to have expectations of me no matter how high I go or how low I go. How do you know if they excelled or bombed?

For what it's worth, the biggest, heaviest (237 pounds) of the top quarterback prospects, Allen, ran the fastest 40-yard dash, clocking in at 4.75, followed by Baker Mayfield (4.84), Sam Darnold (4.85) and Rosen (4.92). He made a name for himself on the national stage during the Bulldog's College Playoff games, which he credits as one reason his name has garnered so much attention.

"I want to show I love the game and that I'm a complete tight end", said Fumagalli, who's as sure-handed as they come despite having only nine fingers, losing the index finger on his left hand at birth. I will provide analysis on the prospects for each of the four televised on-field segments throughout the combine.

"I had some goals set: I wanted to get in the 4.3s".

There's been buzz about the Jets looking at Quenton Nelson with the sixth pick in the draft but Hernandez may have had the best showing of any interior lineman at the NFL Combine.

Many wonder if the 2016 Heisman Trophy victor might be best suited as an National Football League receiver, but he insists he's "strictly a quarterback".
