The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine came and went quickly, and now offseason mode will commence for another week.
When people ask me why I watch the draft or follow the combine I have no answer.
Penn State has a long history of highly drafted running backs, maybe most notably in recent years with Larry Johnson who was taken 27th overall by the Chiefs in 2003. On top of that, there's the 40 time of Shaquem Griffin, the weird world of Orlando Brown and whatever forces players to leave Miami early and then bomb the combine. "And you want to see how they're able to echo and articulate what their role, what their responsibility is within the framework of that individual play".
There was plenty to ponder as National Football League personnel and prospects departed Indianapolis following a 2018 Scouting Combine with lots of high points, as dozens of players exceeded expectations. Yes, he was expected to run fast, but hype creates pressure on top prospects to perform up to expectations.
As Jim Reineking of USA Today notes, most offensive tackles have somewhere around a 5.24-second 40-yard dash time, a 28.4-inch vertical and an 8.5-foot broad jump. During on-field drills, Allen (6-5, 237) was very accurate in the throwing sessions, and was easily the most impressive of the quarterbacks who threw.

The amount has but now surpassed $6,000. "I never got to the point where I could see a future with somebody so much", Kufrin said. And I want to do this in front of everyone because I want to show you that I should have done this a long time ago".
Maybe not. Cleveland is reportedly considering taking the best player in the draft at No. 1.
Lauletta showed off his athleticism and threw well during the workout portion of the Combine.
Among all the players at the 2018 combine, Brown ranked sixth and Averett ranked seventh in the 40-yard dash, Neal tied for seventh in the vertical leap and Brown ranked seventh in the 60-yard shuttle run.
And as it does every year, the Combine provided a lot of insight about the top players heading into the Draft in April. He ran the 40 in 4.58 seconds with a 10-yard split of 1.6 seconds.
James (6-3, 215) and Alabama's Minkah Fitzpatrick (6-1, 201) are considered the top two safeties in the draft. His 40-inch vertical and 11-foot broad jump are off the charts for a man 215 pounds. Darius Slay blazed a 4.36-second 40-yard dash back when he was at the 2013 combine.
