4 Standouts from Day 3 at the Combine

A few players who impressed during workouts on Sunday at the NFL Scouting Combine - presented by Lazydays RV.

1. DE Emmanuel Ogbah
The former Oklahoma State standout was one of the fastest defensive linemen at the Combine on Sunday, finishing with a 4.63 40-yard dash, the second-best among defensive linemen. In addition to his impressive 40 time, Ogbah had the second-best vertical jump and third-best broad jump. The overall sentiment among media following Ogbah's workout was that he'd helped his draft stock significantly with his performance at Lucas Oil Stadium.

2. DE Shaq Lawson
Lawson had similar success as Ogbah, finishing near the top in the 40-yard dash and broad jump. Lawson's 4.70 40 was the fourth-best among defensive linemen while his broad jump was the fifth-best among players at his position. The former Clemson player has already been linked to the Buccaneers; NFL Media's Bucky Brooks believe Tampa Bay will select him ninth overall in this year's draft.


  1. DT Robert Nkemdiche**
    Nkemdiche's physical prowess speaks for itself. The 300-pound defensive tackle ran a 4.87 40-yard dash, faster than some wide receivers at this year's Combine and 35-inch vertical jump was the fourth-best among all defensive linemen, not just tackles. After struggling with off-the-field issues at Mississippi, Nkemdiche's meeting with NFL teams were likely just as, if not more important than his on-field workouts. What happened in those meetings, though, will remain between him and the teams he spoke with.

4. LB Darron Lee
As far as the measurable go, Lee was the top-performing linebacker on Sunday. The Ohio State product recorded the fastest 40 of any linebacker, finishing the drill in 4.47 seconds. He also led the pack with a 133-inch broad jump, in addition to finishing with the fifth-highest vertical jump. Travis Feeney had the second-fastest 40 time among linebackers, clocking in at 4.5, while Minnesota's De'Vondre Campbell followed with a 4.58.
