5 Standouts from the Combine, March 4

A few players who impressed at the NFL Scouting Combine on Saturday - presented by Florida Hospital.


  1. WR John Ross**
    Ross was the star of the Combine on Saturday, running a 4.22-second 40-yard dash and breaking Chris Johnson's record for the fastest 40 in the history of the Combine. Ross was also one of the top performers in the broad jump, recording a distance of 133 inches, which was tied for No. 3 among wide receivers. Ohio State's Samuel Curtis had the second-fastest 40-yard dash, completing the drill in 4.31 seconds.

2. WR Speedy Noil, Texas A&M
Noil didn't run the 40-yard dash, but led all wide receivers with a vertical jump of 43.5 inches. Through two days, Noil has the highest vertical jump of any player at the Combine. Tennessee's Alvin Kamara led running backs with a vertical of 39.5 inches on Friday. Noil was also tied with Ross with a 133-inch broad jump and recorded 18 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press.


  1. QB Deshaun Watson**
    For the quarterbacks at the Combine, the timed drills aren't necessarily the most important. Watson's 40-yard dash time of 4.66 seconds was the third-fastest among quarterbacks, but it was his performance during drills that set him apart. Following his workout, NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah said Watson was the most impressive quarterback on the day, followed by Mitch Trubisky.

4. TE Evan Engram, Mississippi
Engram was, by far, the fastest tight end at the combine, clocking in at 4.42 seconds in the 40-yard dash. His time was faster than the majority of the wide receivers. Engram recorded a vertical jump of 36 inches, No. 5 among tight ends, and was No. 6 among players at his position in the broad jump. Miami's David Njoku was dominant in the vertical and broad jumps.

5. WR Robert Davis, Georgia State
Like Njoku, Davis performed well in both the vertical and broad jumps. His broad jump of 136 inches led all wide receivers while he was second in the vertical jump behind Noil. Davis also performed well in the 40-yard dash, finishing the drill in 4.44 seconds, and recorded 19 reps on the bench press, No. 2 among wide receivers.
