4 prospects who helped themselves at NFL Combine and should be on Eagles radar

4 prospects who helped themselves at NFL Combine and should be on Eagles radar

Matt Miller, the chief NFL Draft analyst for Bleacher Report, released his post-NFL Combine mock draft on Tuesday.

So what effect has the Combine had on the NFL Draft thus far?

This year's combine was filled with some tremendous performances by players who are clearly ready to excel at the next level.

There's no guarantee that Barkley will be a grand slam - so many Browns picks have fizzled - but Cleveland would be getting him for the first five years of his career, typically the career prime of a brutal position, and before that potential massive second contract. Quandre Diggs can play nickel or strong safety now due to his physicality, but he ran just a 4.56-second 40 in 2013.

BAD, BAD ORLANDO BROWN JR.: The only thing that went well for Oklahoma's massive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. was the vote of confidence from his Heisman Trophy-winning teammate. His style is not the same as that of recent top-10 backs; Elliott, Fournette and Gurley in college played with more power and interior explosiveness, which emphasized their abilities to physically dominate tacklers. These meetings can happen at the NFL Combine, pro days, the Senior Bowl or a private workout. That said, I think they'll invest in a free-agent quarterback and take the best player available to better support whoever they use under center. "In those drills, I feel like if you know your scheme, you can pick off that skill set and see which one really relates with the technique". His stock is on the rise after an impressive Combine where he measured in at 6-feet tall and clocked a time of 4.42 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

United States intelligence has said those documents were illicitly obtained by or on behalf of the Russian government. I totally believe he talks to Roger Stone nonstop. " I'm not going to build the case that they are trying to build ".

Alabama defensive backs Tony Brown and Anthony Averett blazed on the fastest day of the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine on Monday. The work he put in today, though, definitely makes him one of the more intriguing defensive back prospects in the draft.

The first few picks of the draft still appear to be a toss up.

Barkley was expected to come into the Combine and impress. He put up only 14 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, which is about half of the average at his position. After that? You could argue that it's the NFL Draft.

In Penn State's come-from-behind-victory over Iowa last season, Barkley's highlight runs stole the show, but it was his pass blocking that won the Nittany Lions the game. Johnson was the 2017 Big Sky Defensive MVP.

The Big Sky defender was still feeling good after the mishap. Sports Illustrated's Peter King now projects the linebacker will go in the late third or early fourth round of the draft - believing that Griffin could have an immediate impact on special teams regardless of where he ends up.
