This Player's NFL Draft Stock Is Tanking

Allen, who chose to forgo his final season at Wyoming for the NFL Draft, is expected by many to be selected higher than any Wyoming player has ever been drafted.

The idea of one prospect dominating a position so thoroughly at the combine is mind-boggling, and it will force organizations to place his workout into context with others at the National Football League level. But it was the defensive ends who really stood out. Considering he didn't face a high level of opposing quarterbacks as a senior, he needed to do more at the Combine. If he exceeds those expectations, then his grade could rise a little. Barkley would likely be a better fit in NY than Cleveland. It doesn't take away from this speed, which plays well on film and makes him a viable deep threat, but the wide receiver class still has questions at the top as there are no clear-cut No. 1 options.

Ham ― who won four Super Bowl championships with the Pittsburgh Steelers and is one of the best linebackers in Penn State history ― is an analyst for the Penn State Sports Network. After a strong week in Mobile, he put on another strong performance in Indy. Hernandez also posted a 24.0 vertical and a 104.0-inch broad jump. He rounded all that off with a 4.65 second 40 and 20 repetitions on the bench press.

Davenport is raw and might not be quite ready to be a full-time player as a rookie, but his natural traits are excellent - he has unlimited upside. But this guy simply knows how to get open and his toughness will make him a feisty matchup at the next level.

"There's not a comparison you can make", Ham said. His impressive long ball came on the seventh of 10 passing drills the quarterbacks went through. His three-cone drill time of 6.90 seconds trailed only South Florida's Quinton Flowers among quarterbacks. Wilson is one of a number of receivers vying for position in the second-round range.

Vander Esch was a hot name for weeks leading up to the combine. Miller has McKenzie being drafted early in the sixth round with the 178th overall pick by the Indianapolis Colts. After his weekend in Indy, he should be a lock first-rounder. That selection, an nearly instantly regrettable decision that would plague Cleveland for years, led to a turning point in running back evaluation across the NFL. While many expect the Browns to solve their quarterback issue with the top selection, it appears that Cleveland might have a different plan of attack. He came in at 5107, which is fine. I bet teams are heading back to their respective cities and throwing on more tape of Griffin after his Combine performance. Reid did just that with one of the better safety workouts at the combine.

So let's go off of what we know: This kid is always open and he catches everything. Before the combine, he was likely a top five pick, but now, there is no way he gets past the third pick. Barkley put up 29 bench press reps, second to only DL Kylie Fitts of Utah among combine attendees under 270 pounds. While he showed quickness in the agility drills, his explosiveness was just average.

According to The MMQB's Albert Breer, Key said he had tipped the scales at 280 pounds at one point during the 2017 season and generally weighed between 270 and 275 pounds. There were 336 players at the Combine and there are 256 draft slots. He didn't get it. Among the more hard questions: defining his biggest weakness.

For Browns GM John Dorsey, the task of completely rebuilding a franchise is daunting. Allen is raw but has the size and skill teams want. His broad jump was the best among the running backs. There were times when he looked like he had top potential, and others when he looked disinterested.
