Orlando Brown likely to drop out of first round after poor combine

Orlando Brown likely to drop out of first round after poor combine

While there is still a long way to go in the evaluation process for the draft, there were several defensive linemen who may have improved their stock with their test results at the National Football League combine. He took his chances by declaring for the NFL Draft and that looks like the right call so far.

When people ask me why I watch the draft or follow the combine I have no answer. He has also cemented the recognition as being arguably the best all-around talent in this year's class that could have him in the running to be selected with the first overall pick.

The Combine enlightened fans, scouts, and GMs to the athletic potential of many players, and it will be incredibly important in the coming weeks for the teams to sift through all the information they just received about each player.

Barkley wowed at the NFL Scouting Combine over the weekend, and surely is the top player on many draft boards, regardless of position. Yes, he was expected to run fast, but hype creates pressure on top prospects to perform up to expectations.

Two killed on campus in Central Michigan University dorm
The Florida gunman, who had a history run-ins with law enforcement, used a semi-automatic assault rifle in the shooting. Even though the suspect has been identified he is still at large and the university is still on lockdown.

So of the players that the Giants may have interest, who impressed them the most? Each of the top QBs in this class come with their own unique question marks, so taking a shot on Mayfield, who could change the culture in Cleveland from Day 1 if given the opportunity, isn't a bad idea.

Lauletta showed off his athleticism and threw well during the workout portion of the Combine. His vertical jump of 39.5 inches was the best among all defensive linemen and edge defenders at the combine, and he had the third-best 40-yard dash time (4.53 seconds) and was tied for the third-best broad jump (10 feet, 4 inches).

But a lackluster performance, led by bottom tier vertical and broad jumps (30-inches and 9 3/8-feet respectively) may push him to Day 3 of the draft, which would be a frustrating result for the early-entry receiver. Heading into the week, he seemed like a lock to be a top-15 selection. He measured in at 6-foot-2 and 311 pounds, and ran a 4.95-second 40.

Speedy DBs: LSU cornerback Donte Jackson didn't succeed in his quest to beat John Ross' combine record of 4.22 in the 40-yard dash, but he did tie for fastest time among all the prospects this year when he turned in a 4.32.
