Quarterbacks take center stage at 2018 NFL Scouting Combine

Quarterbacks take center stage at 2018 NFL Scouting Combine

Saquon Barkley just proved himself as one of the greatest athletes in NFL Combine history. After watching Barkley these past few days, he may want to reconsider.

J.T. Barrett improves to an unofficial time of 4.71 seconds on his second 40-yard dash attempt. He ranked last among the offensive linemen in the 40-yard dash (5.85 seconds), bench press (14 reps), vertical jump (19.5-inches) and broad jump (6-feet, 10 inches).

His explosiveness across the three events was jaw dropping, especially considering his measurables.

Then, Hamilton reflected on a game against Buffalo during Barkley's freshman year when he first hurdled a defender.

Monday: Defensive backs take the field for on-field workouts.

Let's take a look at who the experts have the Vikings taking at the #30 overall spot in their most recent mock drafts!

Penn State running back Saquon Barkley has done nothing but help his draft stock at the National Football League combine this week. "I'd say that's pretty important for a left tackle".

Employers are committed to continuing to pay in 18% to staff pensions for the next five years, double the private sector average". University lecturers are manning the picket lines as they begin their most severe strike to date over changes to their pensions.


Barkley ran the 40-yard dash in 4.40 seconds Friday, the second-best time among all running backs at the combine. He had 13 reps on the 225-pound bench press, his one below average mark on the day.

"Pulled a lot, did a lot of counter, hit some inside zone and outside zone, but that was more of my junior year when we had running back Aaron Jones...my last year, we focused more on gap scheme play". In the meantime, other running backs get to impress and drive up their stock. Wells and Davis had a vertical of 33.5 inches and Fannin's was 37.5.

The Colts will have several meetings with prospects during this time to get a better gauge of their personality off of the field and Barkley has been one of them, per NFL Network's James Palmer.

Day 1 of on-field drills has come and gone with the offensive lineman and running backs on full display.

The scary thing is, Barkley's pre combine hype had very little to do with these type of measured tests.

The Niners now own the ninth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, set to take place this April, and the Raiders pick 10th. The Cleveland Browns picking first overall and the New York Giants picking second overall would nearly certainly have interest in drafting him higher than Denver, and the Browns have two picks to play with in front of the Broncos.
