2015 NFL Scouting Combine Results


The 2015 NFL Scouting Combine is getting underway now in Indianapolis, Indiana at Lucas Oil Stadium and we will soon be starting to compile the 2015 NFL Combine Results. The scouting combine is an invitation only event, open only to invited college players and NFL team officials. The testing and evaluations include: physical measurements, injury evaluation, drug screen, cybex test, wonderlic test, interviews, 40 yard dash, 225 lb bench press, vertical jump, broad jump, 20-yard shuttle, 60-yard shuttle, three-cone drill and position-specific drills.

Below are links to each specific player position grouping. The combine stats are compiled as we receive them and none of them should be considered official, especially the 40 yard dash times. We will fill in these links as we start to get the height and weight results coming in starting on Thursday.

Make sure to bookmark this page. The on the field work will begin on Friday and we will be updating all of the times as they happen live.

    Not best player available at twenty two. If steelers trade down then yes

  • Zumwalt Fan Club

    We need the next Heath, not the next Jarvis Jones. Plenty of depth at CB to double dip later.

  • Weiss Chad

    Kid is gonna have to get a lot stronger to be a good blocker at next level.

  • Weiss Chad

    Heath had one of his best years recieving last year.Maybe not touchdowns and isn’t the same blocker or getting seperation as much but makes up for it in being a smarter player finding holes in zone.I think he has a cpl two-three years left.Im guessing he plays out his contract atleast.Spaeth could be re signed cheap.This offense is not struggling.If max Williams was bpa I’m all for it but he is a second round talent pushed up the boards because of week draft class Imo.I see things different I guess.To me this defense is the problem and offense is far from struggling.We need cb and olb a whole lot more than tight end.I like the idea of drafting a tight end but definitely don’t think it’s in top four or five must draft positions.Safe pick yes ,perennial pro bowler highly unlikely.Im going defense unless some superstar falls to is at twenty two and IMO Williams is not in that category.Good safe pick yes but not enough to sway me from picking defense unless top thee cb and top five olb are off the board .Even if that’s the case I still look at nose tackle and safety first.Even if I’m gonna address the offense I’m not sold on tight end still being the biggest need.I like max Williams and like some options with him.I like the that he is only twenty and has a high ceiling.Great hands but don’t create such great separation and until he gets stronger I’m gonna be worried about blocking in the nfl.I see a top ten tight end in nfl but man I gotta go defense in rounds one two and possibly three.Thats what I would do .Id follow the blue print of Baltimore on how to revamp a defense in a hurry

  • Milliken Steeler

    Jarvis Jones? So you have his career all mapped out already despite his injuries and despite how long it takes normally for a OLB to play here. What about Shazier? Should we give up on him already? Lets give these guys a break. I think barring injury, Jarvis is going to shine this year.

    I really don’t understand the way some of you think sometimes.

  • Weiss Chad

    What does Jarvis jones have to do with this years draft?I know where you are going because in your oppinion Jarvis is a bust.That pick has zero impact on them drafting a bust linebacker in first round this year.

  • Zumwalt Fan Club

    You are assuming that because Jones was good in college, and was a 1st round pick, that he automatically is going to be good. He has shown nothing. I hated when we picked him, and I believe he is going to be a bad player. The Steelers havent drafted a TE earlier than the 3rd since Spaeth in 07. It is time to find Heath’s replacement very soon, even tho he is still a stud. I dont want another “pass rusher” early who underwhelms like Worilds, who is an inconsistent one trick pony, or Jones. This team is going to need a potent offense the next several years to win because, this defense has too many holes. There are good defenders all over the draft. I dont want another late round TE who is nothing more than a 3rd string body.

  • Ernest

    Arent you assuming the same thing with Maxx? Just sayin. The fact is no draft pick is a sure thing.

  • Ernest

    The man crush for Maxx Williams with a lot of Steeler fans is puzzling. Dont get me wrong he is a great looking prospect and could be heir to Heath but i have seen a lot of fans willing to pass on consensus better players in favor for Maxx.

  • LucasY59

    you forgot an X

  • mokhkw

    Would you be happy spending the #22 pick on a player who likely won’t start and get only 15-20 snaps per game in 2015?

    He may not even get that many if Spaeth is re-signed.

    O is in fine shape, no need to rush Heath out the door quite yet but that time will come soon.

    I’d say its a 95% chance that the Steelers pick at #22 is on D – where they need help.

    Wiliams may be the bext TE in this years class but that doesn’t mean he is good value as a 1st Rd Pick

    nfl-dot-com has given him a ranking 0f 5.7.

    In 2014 Troy Niklas (5.6) went at #52, Ebron (6.2) went at #10, Amaro (5.5) at #49 etc.

    They had a different ranking system in 2013 but going by the numbers Williams would have been a late 2nd/early 3rd if he was available in 2013 and likely be the 5th TE drafted.

    2015 is not the year to spend a 1st Rd Pick on any TE from this group – it’s not a good TE class by any means & definitely no blue-chip prospects.

  • mokhkw

    He was one of the 1st players reviewed here & some people fell in love with him without checking out any of the other prospects.

    In other words, doing exactly what Dave & Alex said not to do(via podcast) when looking at the Draft Profiles. 🙂

  • Zumwalt Fan Club

    If this team drafts defense in the first round, youre talking about a player who will be playing LESS than 15-20 snaps a game, unless the Steelers have no choice but to throw them out there. I dont want a guy just because its a position of need. If he isnt the right fit, dont draft him. Peters may be available, but has serious character issues. There are several OLBs, but are any worth the 22nd pick? Im personally not a fan of any. A couple years ago, I wanted another weapon in Ertz or Eifert, two guys I knew would contribute right away, and that is with Heath coming off injury. It is time for an explosive TE like Williams in my opinion. He seems to be the only TE this year who looks like a potential star.

  • mokhkw

    You may not be a fan of any of them but this years class of OLBs/DEs is deep at the top with 5 expected to go on the 1st RD.

    I’ve read a few Scouting reports on Williams and they say he isn’t explosive at all – and that he’ll likely not crack 20 in the 225 bench press.

    That’s why he isn’t a blue-chipper or a 1st Rd pick.

    I agree on the playing time – at this stage. If Worilds isn’t resigned then a starter at OLB could be a draft pick. And any 1st RD CB would have to be in the mix for starting day 1 – remember the LeBeau era is over & I think we’ll see a change in how soon D Rookies get playing time.

    Same can’t be said for many other spots though.

    Williams as a mid-2nd Rd Pick I have no issues with & I expect that is where he’ll end up going after the Combine.He should have stayed in school for 1 or 2 more years as he is clearly not NFL-ready yet.

  • Reno

    It does seem like many have a fixation with M. Williams like he is the only option to replace Heath. While I agree we need to replace Heath soon it seems like people are pushing panic buttons like he is the only option. I would not be surprised if the Steelers made a run at Cameron or Gresham and it’s resolved before the draft. If not the Steelers will still have the option of drafting 1 from a better pool of talent next year or once again free agency where they should be in much better shape cap wise by freeing up 8-9 million with Woodley finally off of the books.

  • steeltown

    We wont know till draft weekend… he could actually be the BPA

  • Weiss Chad

    You mean bpa at a position of need somewhat .I can agree with that …Best player overall at twenty two Imo that’s a stretch.

  • Donte Williams

    all i do is SMDH at some of yinz fans. Maxx Williams this Maxx Williams that dude from DA U impresses me better than MW. and Jones being a bust talk is foolish probably the same ones saying TImmons was a bust when we took him #16 overall after the jets jumped us to take Reeves who i think was our pick that year. Jones was doing a hell of job the first 2.5 games than he showed his rookie year i was impressed then boom he got injured. everyone screaming for heaths replacement this year when our offense was ranked #2 in the league with heath are you serious. yes he is long in the tooth but he is still a productive TE not to mention we do not know what we have in Blanchflower yet as they steelers like him but the fans wont know about him till we see him on the field. i will be highly pissed if the steelers took maxx at 22 knowing there are defenive players still on the board, i rather take peters from washington than maxx i rather reach for orchard or kahaka then take maxx. we will see how it plays out but the way colbert has been talking i think butler is about to get some players he wants to groom this defense we get better on defense and the offense continues to thrive up ward this team is going to be dangerous next year. also i think a back up RB is more important than a TE being drafted in the 1st round only to sit

  • Milliken Steeler

    You are incorrect. Until he got hurt and until Timmons wiped him out, he was playing better with a few sacks and QB pressures. That is NOT showing nothing. Because you don’t like the pick, you are being biased about his play.
    His own team mates even stated they were disappointed with the injury because he had shown progress and was playing better. That sounds like an endorsement to me.

    So once again, unless you have a crystal ball, you, me or anyone else, do not know how Jarvis’s career will end up. He does not have a big enough body of work, to glean enough from.

    Barring injury, this year will show where he is at with his development.

    There is a TE Koyack, that can probably be had in the third round, that is already considered an excellent blocker, not good but excellent and has good hands. It is believed he . suffered from the Irish’s lack of having a productive QB as far as his numbers go. If he is there in the 3rd or even 4th round, I would hope the Steelers consider him.

  • Steelers12328882

    I think the fixation is dictated by history. Steelers have a penchant for drafting TEs with their 1st rd pick. Bennie Cunningham, Eric Green, Mark Bruener and Heath Miller, and all have worked out pretty well, none better than Heath. The difference here is that the cupboards were pretty much bare when these 4 were drafted. I think Heath can play out his contract, but theres no doubt he’s on the decline. For that reason I don’t think TE is as much a priority, but 12 personnel is in vogue, so it’s still possible another TE could be drafted high. I think it all has to do with BPA, and if the Steelers OLB or CB is not available at 22 then they could go in that direction. If I had to guess I’d say Maxx gets drafted by the Seahawks at 31.

  • ATL96STEELER

    I think there will be several higher need options on the board (possibly Peters) with comparable rating to M. Williams and I’m sure Colbert will not take a TE if a DEF 1st round talent is on the board.

    Where I disagree with you is reaching for Orchard @ 22…you trade back, or trade up in the 2nd to get him.

    JJ…yeah, he is wearing a healthy share of the bust label, and I agree it’s too early. This is yr 3. IMO he will probably never be a dbl sack guy at this level, but he has to be in the 7-9 range range this season and next to earn a 2nd contract in PIT.

  • Zumwalt Fan Club

    A coverage sack and a sack in which his back hit the QBs arm as Jones got man handled..dont look at 2 sacks and assume he is making progress..misses way too many tackles, cant set the edge to contain RBs and TEs, and is not strong. We will see..just because you got his jersey or whatever and believe he is going to be good, doesnt mean he will be. We shall see.

  • Nolrog

    Come on Milliken, don’t you know parts of 2 years is more than enuogh time to project his entier career?

  • Nolrog

    We will likely have 1 corner on the roster who was terrible last year and 1 OLB who people have no faith in, and you want to spend the first pick on a TE? There may be CB depth in the draft but there is also plenty of need that we have to address this urgently, now, and maybe both thru the draft and FA.

  • Zumwalt Fan Club

    There are so many holes on defense that it is ridiculous. But I believe Maxx will be the best player available at 22. This team needs to be active in free agency to address the defensive issues that will affect this season. OLB, CB and S are all serious needs, as is depth at DL..and depth at RB and TE.. Just remember what it was like without Heath 2 years ago. If they pick up a guy like Jesse James later I will be happy, but I just really like Maxx.

  • Josh Knepshield

    I don’t see that. The Hawks need WR more than TE. They have an athletic freak in Luke Willson, and they are going to resign Miller. I say they go Jaelen Strong. This means Maxx could fall out of the 1st completely, which could spark a move up. I hope.

  • NinjaMountie

    Welp….looked at the TEs weigh in and dang that Jesse James is a big ole beast. He came in at 6’7 and 261, his hands are a little smaller but he’s a biggin. I’ll be interested in his 40 time. He’s one of the later round TE’s I have my eye on if they don’t go Maxx in the 1st, which I don’t think they will.

  • NinjaMountie

    I agree…Seahawks need a TE early like we need an early WR.

  • NinjaMountie

    It’s an offense thing.

  • Steelers12328882

    It wasn’t a suggestion based on need. Just seems like the type of player that would be drafted by a good team at the end of the 1st rd.

  • Steelers12328882

    I think he’s actually moved up to the 3rd ranked TE on most sites rankings.

  • Reno

    I would not have a problem with drafting him at all if he was the BPA. My question is if Waynes or Dupree is available (highly doubt either will be) will he still be considered the BPA.

  • LucasY59

    Broncos will take Maxx to replace J. Thomas (since they cant afford to re-sign him)

  • LucasY59

    The lack of talent pool is why most think Maxx could be the 1st rd pick. there aren’t any candidates that will be able to take over for Heath when he is done.

    Also Maxx wont replace Heath this yr he will be another weapon to add to the O along with Heath (and could help keep Heath around till the end of his contract, with less pressure as the only pass catching TE on the roster)

    What does the TE talent look like next yr? seems like some of the top prospects Williams, James and Kroft declared this year because there was a lack of TE’s which causes a lack of TE’s next year also

  • LucasY59

    NFL digs OFFENSE

  • Milliken Steeler

    He is around the football. If you aren’t, you arent gong to get sacks period. He has always been known for being around the football.

    I have his Jersey? That’s comical. My support is based on what I have seen. Time will tell.

  • Milliken Steeler

    I’m sorry Nolrog. My bad, I actually should have known better 🙂

  • Reno

    I think the problem is so many just assume free agency is not an option. The Steelers have too many holes to fill through the draft if they want immediate production. If they don’t draft Williams or sign one in free agency they still have two more cracks at his replacement next year through the draft or free agency. I don’t know what the talent pool is but this year is ridiculously thin. I would be surprised if it wasn’t better.

  • Steelers12328882

    Same with Peters and maybe P.J. Williams.

  • Reno

    And L. Collins

  • Josh Knepshield

    I can see that, yet they do have Virgil Green ready to replace Julius Thomas. Green is 6’5 255 with 4.6 wheels and is a terrific blocker.

  • LucasY59

    Green is also a FA, not as much of a pass catcher either

  • Josh Knepshield

    Yes, but he would be cheap. He is 6’5 255 with 4.6 wheels. He has never really been given an opportunity, but they have some excitement for him.

  • Weiss Chad

    The defense has too many wholes so you wanna bolster up the offense?With all respect I don’t get that at all.I understand you thinking we need to score a lot of points do to giving up a lot of points.This was the best offense I can ever remember in black and gold.Its one of the worse defenses I remember in twenty years .My solution to that definitely is not drafting more offense.There isn’t too many wholes to fill btw and with a good draft(defense)they could be much improved.I don’t see offense getting so much better.

  • Weiss Chad

    Williams -seventeen on bench press

  • Weiss Chad

    Jones didn’t get manhandled on that sack.lol.He drove six seven yards into backfield.How is that being man handled?

  • Weiss Chad

    I think browns take him

  • I kinda agree with both of you….There is a slim possibility that he could be the BPA at #22 on the Steelers draft board, this means excluding QBs, RBs, WRs, ILB….you know-players the Steelers probably wouldn’t use a 1st rd pick on, and if this were the case I would have no problem welcoming Maxx to the Burgh!

    But I wasn’t happy to see his bench reps….17, but the funny thing is that’s exactly how many reps heath did before he was drafted lol.

  • Steelers12328882

    None of the TEs can run. Pretty disappointing. Wish we could comment on the individual position pages.

  • StarSpangledSteeler

    Ernest –

    It’s a very fair observation. And I am one of the guilty ones. Here is my opinion (for what it’s worth).

    If a clear top 10 prospect falls to us at 1.22, I don’t think there’s anyone on this board who would say “Don’t draft him.” The problem is there are a lot fans who disagreed with some of Colbert’s first round draft decisions lately (Ziggy Hood, Jarvis Jones, even Ryan Shazier to some degree) an we are frustrated with the results. We keep drafting 1st round defensive players and our defense is not getting better.

    We just want a star player. An impact player. A pro bowl type player. And we feel the odds are very high that Maxx Williams can become that type of player. The chances of Maxx busting are very very low. So it’s a safe pick with a ton of upside in a position that will most likely be a huge need by 2016. Plus it helps our red zone TD scoring immediately.

    As of right now, the players expected to be available around 1.22 all have at least one significant flaw. So the fans want the sure thing. And when they look at Maxx they see a young Heath (only faster).

  • Kevin Reich

    No way maxx Williams with the first pick. 4.8-40.

  • Terrible Towlie

    not faster, 4.9 and 4.77 not very good for a guy who is not a good blocker

  • Terrible Towlie

    and Heath had a hernia at the time

  • Terrible Towlie

    Heuerman and Koyack are waiting till their pro days to run, both are more Steeler-ish than slow, smaller than claimed, ginger kid….no thanks to the ginger kid

  • cp72

    Williams is a solid prospect Let’s not forget he’s only 20.

    Koyack and Walford were impressive. O’Leary is built like a tree stump and has nice natural hands.

  • cp72

    Vic Beasley weighed in at 246. That’s impressive considering we were hearing numbers closer to 230. He’s the same size as Jarvis, but he is a yoked up like James Harrison.

  • He was recovering from one at the time of the combine, but he benched at his pro day….I don’t recall how healthy he was at the time but one could assume he may have gotten a couple more reps if not for the hernia at all.

  • Mike Frantz

    He’d better run. If he bulked up to 246 just for a weigh in and then doesn’t do drills….. Need to see if he still has the athleticism at that weight.

  • NinjaMountie

    4.8 isn’t terrible for a true TE. Not everyone can be Gronkowski and he’s not a great blocker. Gronkowski is probably a 4.7+ guy now and he dominates. Size is the biggest boon for a TE as long as they are adequately fast.

  • O’Leary is from my old high school around the corner from me….I like him a lot; dude’s a football player, but he is only going to be valuable at the NFL level if used correctly imo…He is only 6’3″, 29″ arms, hands barely over 9″, and isn’t fast….but he is very smart, a roll up your sleeves and get to work-effort guy with a tough attitude, and he does have good hands. He needs to be moved around, and used as an H-Back or secondary TE. He is the type of player the Pats steal in the 3rd or 4th rd and makes a play or two for them in almost every game that contributes to their victories.

    I like him a lot like I said, but when it comes to us I don’t know if I see our future starting TE in him. Walford and Koyack, Yes…and Williams is almost a clone of Heath; with him tough, I just don’t like having to spend a 1st rd pick on because of all our other pressing needs on D.

  • Steelers12328882

    No not terrible, but you can forget about being a 1st rd TE if you’re not in the 4.6’s.

  • Steelers12328882

    Never like players not willing to compete when there’s opportunity, unless they’re injured.

  • Heath ran like a 4.86 or something like that at his pro day…Williams is so similar to Heath it’s crazy, but either way their times are not much different to call one faster than the other…unless Star Spangled was talking about Heath’s 40 time right now….than Maybe he’s a little faster.

  • cp72

    He’s 4.6….I’ve seen plenty of his games. He’s explosive.

  • Mike Frantz

    My point is that he looks explosive on tape, but most folks think he played at 225. If he’s put on 20 lbs since then I want to see him run to make sure he’s still explosive carrying the extra weight. if he waits to his pro day to run (so he can cut), then I get concerned.

  • Steelers12328882

    I’d say forget about Chickillo as a 5tech DE, weighing in at 267. Xavier Cooper only had 31-1/2in arms at 6ft 3in. Carl Davis is 6ft 5in 283 lbs with 34-1/2in arms. Awesome! Can he play 5 tech? Mario Edwards was 6ft 4in 284 lbs but smaller arms at 33in. Joey Mbu 35in arms! Jordan Phillips and Ellis McCarthy have huge frames too. A couple light guys like Cedric Reed at 265lbs and Preston Smith at 271lbs. I still think Smith can add 25lbs and play 5tech, but Reed looks like a 4-3 DE. Leonard Williams is a freak.

  • Calvin700

    Exactly and under 6’4? Benches 225 only 17 times are u serious??? and a vert of 34.5? No thanks like I said defense in the first round is a must

  • jujudoublestuff

    While most on here were in love with Williams, I was one of the few that wasn’t. He never was worth the 22 pick to me.

  • Alexander Sebastian Heath

    Watford look like he would be the best tight end of the class. Essentially the same in mold of Dwayne Allen.

  • Jason Vancil

    LOL. Watch the tape my friends. Forget this measurable nonsense.

  • mokhkw

    & 4.78 for the 40.

    The Maxx Williams at #22 bandwagon just went empty

  • Toddy Bravo

    I’m a firm believer that tape and production are more important than measurables, but only to a certain extent. A 4.8 40 for allegedly the top TE in the class can’t be overlooked. That’s significant. Don’t get me wrong, I still like him. I just think his stock has taken a big hit. Maybe mid-late 2nd round.

  • Jason Vancil

    What did Heath run at Virginia Pro Day? I know he had a hernia and didn’t work at the Combine. If Heath ever ran under 4.85, I’ll eat my shorts.

  • Steelers12328882

    It was about the same, but we drafted Heath 30th and that was a slight reach. 2005 was another bad TE class, although most are, and Heath probably should have been drafted somewhere middle 2nd rd, but we had Ben coming off a magical season and no TE. It was a perfect fit. I think the 2nd TE drafted in 2005 was middle 3rd rd.

  • NinjaMountie

    To be fair, he didn’t make contact with the OT until he was 6 yards in the backfield. Jones was blind to that whole sack and barely touched Cam. Now, to be honest, I don’t like JJ either and I’ve always hated the pick.

  • NinjaMountie

    agreed! He certainly didn’t separate himself from the TE field with his performance at the combine either. WEAK and avg speed.

  • Jason Vancil

    If we go off how his career turned out, Heath should’ve been drafted in the Top 20 picks. I will bet you 5 years from now Maxx Williams will be among the Top 20 players from this draft. The kid has special talent for the position. If it were he and Ebron in the same class, I would rank them close.

  • Toddy Bravo

    Anybody hear anything about Shaq Thompson making the switch to safety? Mayock has him ranked as his #2 SS. Is this a legit possibility?

  • mokhkw

    Miller was no where near healthy at the combine or his Pro day, he had been clocked in the 4.6s and benched mid 20s during the pre-season of his last season at Va.

    Unfair to really compare the numbers given Millers health at the time, reports said he really struggled to get off the line when running so how he managed to do any benching with a sports hernia is kinda remarkable tbh.

    Was a bit of luck he was available to the Steelers at the time, if he was healthy I doubt we would have had the chance to draft him.

  • Steelers12328882

    Oh yeah, totally. In a redraft Heath would’ve been middle rd1, but I’m talking about his value at the time.

  • Terrible Towlie

    Koyack and Heuerman are more Heath like and will have better careers, i’m even coming around on the token St Pen kid James…and all can be had 3rd or later

  • Terrible Towlie

    to me O’Leary is just Will Johnson with better hands and more of a polished receiver…..I think he will be a H-Back in NFL and we barely use ours

  • Terrible Towlie

    I know where you live… and i’m just north of ya

  • Terrible Towlie

    would rather sign Gresham than draft any of these guys

  • Better careers….I don’t know about all that talk. I like Williams but I don’t understand some fans infatuation with him…and I certainly don’t want to spend a 1st rd pick on any of these TEs. I like the TEs you named for the rds they can be had, and I too loved what I saw from James. I don’t see how we can justify looking for a TE until at least rd 3, and it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if we don’t draft a TE at all bring back speath and see what kind of improvement blanch flower has made if any…but it wouldn’t surprise me with all our other needs and the poor TE class if we don’t grab one and wouldn’t be that sad about it either.

  • I was looking forward to seeing Koyack in the drills…I was disappointed I have to wait.

  • Terrible Towlie

    Blanch Flower, haha! wasn’t she one of the “Golden Girls”?

  • NYCSteelCurtain

    Jeremy Langford topping the Rb’s in the dash. Wow. I love this kid. I’m sure Leveon wouldn’t mind being a two-headed spartan monster with this guy.

    Has a nose for the endzone and has the hands to boot. Love him in the 3rd/4th.

    Though I can see other teams snatching this guy up based on the 40 time and knowing Leveon came from Mich St.

  • Steelers12328882

    CB Kevin Johnson came in at 6 ft 188 lbs. That’s great news he added all that weight. He’s my favorite CB in the 2nd rd. I like him more than Stanford’s Alex Carter.

  • steelster

    I would be happy with either one. It’s the first round pick that’s really tough to figure out. If they go bpa, it may end up being Collins from Alabama.

  • taztroy43

    Yeah I like him too… Hopefully he makes it to us in the 3rd….if not I’m okay with D. Johnson….runs similar to l.bell

  • LucasY59

    Yeldon, Cobb and Robinson didn’t do that well today (not that any RB’s were “great” Langford and K. Williams maybe) should help some fall to the 4th or later

  • LucasY59

    I guess Abdullah and David Johnson did pretty well also

    best scenario for me would be D. Johnson in the 4th, but it doesn’t look likely, too much other good talent should still be available in the 3rd for them to take him a rd earlier IMO

  • LucasY59

    *Injury for Cobb

  • ApexSteel

    Beasley is becoming more and more enticing as a prospect. Good arm length, good size, and his 35 reps were the most of any D linemen which is great for someone who’s strength was in question. If he does well in the agility drills his stock will jump.

  • SteelersDepot

    just because of the combine his stock will jump?

  • ApexSteel

    What are you asking? Will his stock rise because of the combine or do I like him just because of the combine?

  • SteelersDepot

    You should REALLY watch his tape. Lacks strength to hold the edge. Don’t be fooled by the bench press numbers.

  • ApexSteel

    I’ve seen the tape. I respect his pass rush. I’d like to see him add more to it, but looking at it from an optimistic point of view I like it. When it comes to him in the run game it leaves more to be desired, but I think he can be developed. He just needs to add more strength and stop being a “ball chaser”. In some ways he reminds me of Jarvis coming out of college.

  • Leon Mcnair

    Maxx is overrated second rd pick

  • Steelers12328882

    I like him too. If Dupree is gone, and there’s Beasley, Orchard and CBs, I’m going Beasley. I really like Orchard though, but he’s probably not going 1st and will definitely be gone before our 2nd. Plenty of CBs around to get one in rd 2.

  • Leon Mcnair

    Bud Dupree, PJ Williams . Marcus peters I. Would be happy if any of those guys on rd1

  • Toddy Bravo

    Uh yea, his stock will jump because of the 35 reps. There are probably 30-40 players who will see their draft stock rise and 30-40 who will see it decline because of the Combine. It happens all the time, warranted or not.

  • Toddy Bravo

    Johnson may have pushed himself into the late 1st by weighing in at 188. Obviously, we’ll have to wait and see how the rest of his numbers go, but his slight 175 lb. build was the only negative I could find. His tape, production and durability all warrant 1st round and at least a consideration for the Steelers at 22.

  • SteelersDepot

    NFLCombine Top 5 DL unofficial speed scores:
    E.Harold 117.31
    V.Beasley 116.83
    D.Fowler 115.58
    D.Hunter 115.55
    T.Barnes 110.79

  • ApexSteel

    I’m not sure I’d take him, but he is a very good prospect in my eyes. He’s been doing a great job today. He just put up a 41″ vertical so that explosion he showed in college is definitely real. He won’t make it to 22, but he will help someone else make it to 22.

  • cp72

    Nice update Dave!

    I thought Eli Harold turned some heads. I hadn’t seen a lot of him. He just looks like a Steelers linebacker. The good news is there’s gonna be an interesting guys available at 22 and we haven’t seen Orchard or Owi.

  • cp72

    Owi….4.64. Wow!!

  • cp72

    4.84 for Orchard….ouch.

  • Steelers12328882

    yeah not great. He could be available for our 2nd rd pick if we go CB in rd 1 though.

  • cp72

    Is Valles running with the linebackers?

  • Double R

    Yeah he is in the lb group with Dupree. Cant wait to see what they run.

  • NYCSteelCurtain

    I think both of these guys have just jumped there way onto the list of every scout with their performances.

    Love what D. Johnson brings from a receiving perspective.

  • LucasY59

    and the Defensive players win the Combine…

    will be interesting to see how many OLBs and DBs are taken in the 1st

  • Toddy Bravo

    Welp, as far as the CBs go:

    –Trae Waynes just solidified himself as a Top 10 pick w/ sub 4.4 40s.

    –Jalen Collins may have pushed himself into the late 1st.

    –Disappointed with the 40 times for Marcus Peters, Kevin Johnson, PJ Williams, Quentin Rollins. All probably going in the 2nd rd.

    –Did Byron Jones from UConn really have a 44.5 VJ and 12’3″ BJ? Holy hell!

  • ApexSteel

    I disagree when it comes to Peters, Johnson, and Williams. I’ll have to see the official times, but Peter’s 4.54 and Johnson’s 4.52 are great times. Williams 4.57 is a pretty damn good time also. Anytime you can get in the 4.5s you have great speed.

  • puCrepeaP

    I wouldn’t drop THOSE guys a whole round just based on their 40 time. Each of those guys have proven themselves as possible 1st rounders in a dozen games on tape.

  • steeltown

    Peters draft grade is an enigma IMO I have no idea when he’ll be taken but I could still see Williams and Johnson going late 1st Rd

    Darby really looked fluid and fast

  • Toddy Bravo

    Who said I’m dropping them a whole round? They were all late 1st/early 2nd round prospects before the Combine. I’m saying that failing to run in the 4.4s PROBABLY means they drop 4-5 spots (not a whole round), making them all 2nd rounders now.

  • Toddy Bravo

    It’s really all just semantics, but I think you’re exaggerating. Running in the 4.4s is considered “great speed” for a CB. Running 4.5+ is average for the position. Before people jump all over me, I’m only saying that elite 1st round, franchise CBs usually run in the 4.4s. I still like all of those guys for the Steelers. I just don’t think they’re 1st rounders now (Peters due more to character issues than the 40).

    Rollins (who I really like) was closer to 4.6, which is below average. I think that likely drops him to late 2nd/early 3rd.

  • Toddy Bravo

    Just my opinion, but I think Peters was a top 10-15 pick without the character issues. I think getting kicked off the team dropped him to late 1st. Failing to run in the 4.4s (as everyone expected him to) knocked him out of the 1st and solidified him as an early 2nd round pick IMO…keeping in mind that late 1st and early 2nd can be as little of a difference as 1 draft spot.

  • steeltown

    I’m kind of thinking the same thing

  • taztroy43

    do you remember joe haden’s 40 time? These guys still have their pro days to improve on them….if at their pro days they run slow then that would raise a red flag…but again football is not played in underwear….

  • Toddy Bravo

    Yes, Hayden is pretty good. That’s why I said “usually.” And yes, better 40s at their pro days may push them up a few spots back into the 1st.

    And finally, yes, you’re right that football is not played in shorts. However, they hold the Combine for a reason. Coaches from every team attend for a reason. I’m the biggest “production over measurables” guy there is, but speed is more important for CBs (and WRs) than other positions IMO. It can be the difference between being an elite outside cover corner, or being limited to just playing the slot.

  • Steelers12328882

    Is Anthony Harris’ official 40 time of 4.56 secs a mistake? I thought he didn’t participate at all.

  • CW

    The issue with Peters is how far he’s dropped on some draft boards. Some teams probably have dropped him completely off their boards, some he’s probably been downgraded to round three or four.

    Having him fail to live up to combine expectations could have him in free fall if his Pro Day is less than stellar.

  • CW

    Hope that the Steelers take Nick Marshall late in the draft as their second cornerback selection. He might need a year or two to get up to speed as a defensive back, but he looks like he could become an exceptional talent at the next level.

  • Toddy Bravo

    You’re right that he’s probably completely off some draft boards. However, if a team has him on its board, I seriously doubt he’s that far down the list. He’s a top 10-15 talent who may go as late as mid-late 2nd round IMO. I don’t think he’s any lower than that. If he’s there at the Steelers’ 2nd pick, it’s a no-brainer, character issues or not. My best guess is he goes in the first 5 picks or so in the 2nd round.
