NFL Scouting Combine: 5 biggest winners in 2018 so far

Barkley was absolutely incredible performing at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine.

Although there is plenty of action left in the 2018 NFL Combine, the running backs chosen to participate in the events in Indianapolis will get an early start on their weekend as they concluded all off-field and on-field activities Friday afternoon.

After weighing in at 6-0, 233 pounds, Barkley whet the appetite of National Football League scouts by throwing up 29 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, besting most of this year's offensive line prospects. Teams have done all their evaluations of his tape that they need, but the pure athleticism of this dude was on full display from the Combine.

Will Hernandez comes out of the University of Texas - El Paso and after a very strong showing at the Combine, has definitely upped his stock among offensive linemen.

In my analysis I will list the players that improved their draft stock and those who hampered it.

A letter, addressed to the couple at Kensington Palace, caused a security scare after being intercepted before it reached them. The Metropolitan Police force says "a package containing a substance" was delivered to St.

The most glaring are the 14 reps on the bench press and being yelled at by coaches. Whether it was the 3-cone, the 20-yard shuttle of the 40 yard dash, all of the participants had their chance show their quickness.

And for comparison, when Dallas Cowboys standout Ezekiel Elliott took part in the 2016 combine, he recorded a 31-inch vertical and 4.47 second 40-dash at 6-feet, 225 pounds.

The poor performances did not stop there, he ran a ploddingly slow 5.86 secs in the 40-yard dash, per That is completely unacceptable and every defensive lineman in the league should be licking their chops to get a piece of this guy. Michel graded out on ESPN as the second-best running back prospect behind Saquon Barkley.

For perspective, Johnson had the same 41-inch vert.
