Day three standouts from the NFL Draft Combine.
Montez Sweat (DE Ole Miss) Click here to view NFL.com Draft Profile
Sweat posted a 4.41 forty at the 2019 NFL Combine at 6-6 260 lbs. A person of this size defies logic when they move this fast. His forty alone will move him up toward the top of a lot of NFL draft boards. Sweat also posted a 36 inch vertical, and a 125-inch broad jump (4th among all edge players). He only threw up 21 reps on the bench, and one of the areas he can improve upon is his strength according to his NFL.com draft profile. He will need to refine his technique as an edge player in the NFL to maximize his potential. As of right now, he is our number one ranked edge player based on his combine performance and our top player who will benefit the most from his combine performance.
Brian Burns (DE Florida State) Click here to view NFL.com Draft Profile
Burns stood out at the combine, and like Montez Sweat, Burns will be moving up many draft boards after this weekend. Burns is 6-5 249 lbs and posted an impressive 4.53 forty yard dash (3rd best among edge players), 36 inches vertical, 129-inch long jump (2nd among all edge players). His vertical and long jump point to his explosive ability off the edge. He posted 10 sacks and 15.5 TFL's at FSU in 2018.
Devin Bush Jr. (LB Michigan) Click here to view NFL.com Draft Profile
Bush is a special talent. I watched every game he started while at Michigan and what stood out most was his instincts at LB. Bush is fast both upfield and sideline to sideline to sideline. His burst when sent on a blitz whether through the A gap or from the edge of the defense was as impressive as Jabril Peppers when he was at Michigan. Bush posted a 4.43 forty (2nd among all LB's), 40.5 inches vertical (number one among all LB's), and a 124-inch long jump (third among all LB's). Bush did nothing to hurt himself at the combine if anything he further solidified his explosiveness. Bush will either be the top LB off the board or the 2nd after Devin White (LSU) who is equally as explosive. Bush should be a top 20 pick in the 2019 NFL draft.
Juan Thornhill (SS Virginia) Click here to view NFL.com Draft Profile
Thornhill was a three-year starter at Virginia who had 13 ints in 4 years. He is also a physical player who can play in the box and posted 98 tackles 4.5 TFL's in 2018. Thornhill transitioned from CB while at Virginia further solidifying his versatility. His ability to cover a slot WR will be useful in the NFL. Thornhill flashed his former CB speed posting a 4.42 forty, 44 inch vertical (number one among all DB's), and 141-inch long jump (number one among all DB's). Thornhill has moved up the FS365 board and is now our top safety in this draft based on his combine measurables and his production as a college player.
Greedy Williams (CB LSU) Click here to view NFL.com Draft Profile
Greedy came into this draft as the top CB prospect among many of the top scouts in the business. He had a 4.37 forty at the combine and did not participate int he broad jump or the Vertical. He did not hurt his draft stock by not participating in all of the events, and he is still one of the top 3 CB's in this draft.
Zedric Woods (S Ole Miss)- Ran the fastest forty recorded at the 2019 combine at 4.29
Jamel Dean (CB Auburn)- Ran second fastest forty in the 2019 combine at 4.30
Devin White (LB LSU)- Ran the fastest forty among LB's at 4.42
