The combine is in the books. Pro days are here, and free agency is just days away. What's happening in the world of the NFL draft? Let's get caught up.
— Who made the most money at the combine? In seven responses to the text I sent out, they all said UConn cornerback Byron Jones. His 12'3" broad jump is the best I've ever seen, but he also scored well in the vertical jump (44 ½"), three-cone drill (6.78 seconds), 20-yard-shuttle (3.94 seconds) and 60-yard shuttle (10.98 seconds). That's the type of performance that opens eyes.
— Missouri edge-rusher Shane Ray had a foot injury that kept him out of the combine (at the command of doctors; he wanted to perform, I'm told), but he'll do everything at his March 19 Missouri pro day. I'm told by sources close to Ray that he could realistically run in the 4.4 range.
— Cornerback Marcus Peters is a top-10 player on my board, but he comes with off-field questions. He'll work out at Washington's pro day (a good sign after being kicked out of school), and scouts in the room for his interviews at the combine told me he did very well. Expect Peters to make many official team visits to further clear up character concerns.
