It’s day two of the NFL Scouting Combine. There’s been several big developments already today, so we’re filing a mid-day report before we get into the RBs.
Stephen Hill’s sub 4.4 40 yard dash time started the day off with an early roar. It’s obvious that he has top level talent and if he is placed with a team with a great receiver coach, he can become one of the best deep threats in the game. The GA. Tech junior also turned in a 133.0 inch broad jump which makes anyone go “whooo.”
It was initially thought that Robert Griffin III ran another sub 4.0 time today. The official time now has him listed at 4.41 seconds. It doesn’t really matter though does it? Even with a slightly slower time, this guy is so gifted it is insane.
WR Justin Blackmon was impressive even though he hasn’t ran a 40 yard dash and won’t. He did well in the gauntlet drill.
Not to knock anyone specific but it’s kind of weird to see the lack of depth in this year’s QB class. There are MAYBE five kids in this group that look like they can get a long term check in the league even holding a clipboard.
I saw guys with poor footwork delivering inaccurate balls that were falling short and that were just all over the place. I felt for some of the wide outs that did the best that they could to reel in some of these balls. If anything this mediocre play showed us which wide outs were capable of making circus catches.
Stanford’s Andrew Luck borderline shocked me with his 4.59 40 yard dash.
We’ll be back later for a comprehensive look at the Running Backs.
For now here’s a short list of guys that we loved so far on day two.
Robert Griffin III-Baylor-QB
Stephen Hill -Georgia Tech-WR
Chris Givens-Wake Forrest-WR
Justin Blackmon- Oklahoma State -WR
Brock Osweiler-Arizona State-QB
