5 Standouts from the 2016 NFL Combine

A few players who impressed at the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

The best photos from this year's Combine workouts.

1. QB Carson Wentz
Sure, the timed drills aren't as important as they are for other positions. But Wentz still performed well in them, in addition to having a strong performance throwing the ball. Wentz ran a 4.77 40-yard dash, the third-fastest among quarterbacks, and also had the third-best time in the three-cone drill. "I think he had the cleanest Combine out of anybody as far as arm strength," NFL Media's Mike Mayock said. "His feet were good, he showed his athletic ability. For my money… he made some money."

2. CB Jalen Ramsey
At the Combine, Ramsey showed the explosiveness that has led to many analysts to project him as a top-five pick. Ramsey finished with the longest broad jump and highest vertical jump of any player working out, regardless of position. Ramsey's 41.5-inch vertical jump was tied with running back Daniel Lacso for the Combine's best.


  1. RB Keith Marshall**
    Chris Johnson's 40-yard dash record of 4.24 seconds will stand for yet another year. Marshall, a running back who played collegiately at Georgia, was the fastest man at the Combine this year, clocking at in 4.31 seconds. Wide receiver Will Fuller was closely behind, finishing with a 4.32 while defensive back Jonathan Jones ran a 4.33, the third-fastest time of any player in Indianapolis.

4. OT Laremy Tunsil
Without participating in any measurable drills, Tunsil was still able hold his place as the top offensive lineman, and probably the top player, in this year's draft class. While Tunsil didn't run the 40 or hit the bench press, he did participate in on-field drills. His performance left a strong impression on those in attendance. "He's like a Corvette out here," NFL Media analyst Shaun O'Hara said.

5. WR Sterling Shepard
This year's wide receiver class isn't as strong as the previous two have been, but Shepard may have been the most impressive of the bunch at the Combine. He had the second-highest vertical jump among wide receivers and ran a 4.48 40-yard dash, drawing comparisons to Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb.
