Tampa Bay Buccaneers

4 Standouts from Day 4 at the Combine

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

1. CB Jalen Ramsey
Ramsey entered the NFL Combine projected as the top cornerback in this year's draft class and he certainly lived up to the hype. He had the highest vertical jump and longest broad jumps of any cornerback working out on Monday, in addition to running a 4.41-second 40-yard dash. For some positions, drills at the Combine aren't indicative of how they will play on the field. That's not the case for defensive backs, who can find themselves essentially performing a 40-yard dashes and vertical jumps while covering opposing wide receivers and tight ends. After his strong performance, NFL Media's Lance Zierlein moved Ramsey up in his mock draft to the No. 3 spot.

2. CB Vernon Hargreaves
Most experts agree that Ramsey will be selected before the Buccaneers are on the clock at No. 9. Many of those same experts feel that, if he is available, Hargreaves would be the next-best corner and a perfect fit for Tampa Bay. Similar to Ramsey, the former Florida standout excelled in the jumping exercises; Hargreaves finished third and fourth in the broad jump and vertical jump, respectively.


  1. S T.J. Green**
    Green recorded the fastest 40 time of any safety at the Combine, clocking in at 4.33 seconds. He was just .01 seconds behind Jonathan Jones, the Combine's fastest cornerback, and narrowly behind wide receiver Will Fuller (4.32) and running back Keith Marshall (4.31), making Green the fourth-fastest player to run in Indianapolis this week.

4. S Miles Killebrew
Despite playing for a smaller school in Southern Utah, Killebrew has emerged as a top-five safety in this year's draft class; NFL Media's Mike Mayock has him rated as the fourth-best safety available. Mayock praised Killebrew's hard-hitting style of play and explosiveness during his workout. Killebrew's numbers supported that assessment – he finished second and third among safeties in the vertical jump and broad jump, respectively.
