And if Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was paying close attention at the combine, he just might be able to fill Murray's void while spending next to nothing at this year's National Football League draft in April.
Could Jackson really have beat Ross by 0.9 seconds? If he does not turn into a perennial pro bowl candidate, you are not getting the expected return on this pick.
After the run, Ross appeared to pull up and grimace, and was later reported to have cramped up beforehand. If those slowed him down, it can't have been by much.
Lattimore left the workout due to injury. Comment and let us know! While things might change, Allbright provided some insight as to which of the aforementioned positions the team will look to first. Or just be known as the guy who could have had an island with the right footwear.
Reddick had the fastest 40-yard dash time of every defensive lineman at the Combine this season with a 4.52, which was also the second fastest time for all linemen and linebackers.
In a letter his agent sent to all 32 NFL clubs, Foster said he understands combine participation is a "privilege and an honor", and invited coaches and scouts to speak with him at the Alabama football building the day before the Crimson Tide's Pro Day in Tuscaloosa. While he was already thought of as a lock for the first round, you better be sure about a guy if you're going to draft him #2 overall and ahead of guys like Johnathan Allen, or a potential QB of the future in Watson or Trubisky.

The obvious needs for the Eagles are at cornerback, wide receiver, running back and defensive end. Foster was viewed as a top five prospect before this incident, but now his status is in serious question. He did not disappoint, distinguishing himself as one of the top safeties at the event in a number of workouts. He was also fifth among tight ends with a 40-yard dash time of 4.57 seconds. He writes, of the update, "This week's mock features some movement, particularly in the last 10 picks". He is however, willing, and as his combine-record broad jump and ridiculous 39-inch vertical jump show, he has plenty of lower-body power to put to the task.
Safety Chuck Clark was the final Tech participant in on-field work in Indianapolis, running a 4.54 40-yard dash. He also ranked in the 13th percentile in his 3 cone drill, running that in 7.49 seconds.
