NFL Combine Results: While QBs Hog Spotlight, Tight Ends and Linemen Go to Work
NFL Combine Results Are in From Tight Ends and Offensive Linemen
By now I suspect that most people are well aware that big-name quarterbacks like Cam Newton and Ryan Mallett were very much in the spotlight in the NFL Combine, but the players doing the bulk of the actual work were tight ends and offensive linemen (also kickers, but nobody cares).
As such, if you'd rather be hit with all the latest info as far as these players are concerned, you came to the right place.
It was a banner day for USC tight end Jordan Cameron (that picture is from 2008, FYI). He impressed with a 4.55 40-yard dash, which was second only to Robert Housler's (FAU) 4.54. Cameron also impressed with a vertical of 37.4 inches, a 4.03-second showing in the 20-yard shuttle, and an 11.56-second showing in the 60-yard shuttle.
Also impressing was Nevada's Virgil Green. He ran the 40 in 4.64 seconds, topped all tight ends with a 42.5-inch vertical, and finished the 60-yard shuttle in 11.63 seconds.
Among the linemen who impressed was Cincinnati's Justin Kelce, who outpaced all of his comrades with a 40 time of 4.93. He also had the top showing in both the three-cone drill and the 20-yard shuttle.
Also turning heads was Colorado's Nate Solder, who could very well end up being the first tackle off the board on Draft Day. He was faster than expected with a 40 time of 5.03, and he also did the 20-yard shuttle in 4.34.
On Sunday, quarterbacks, wide receivers, and running backs will all be on display. They call it "money day." Can you guess why?
