NFL Combine 2012 Workout
QB * Robert Griffin III of Baylor ran in the low 4.40s and interviewed very well. He elevated his stock and probably goes off the board #2 overall with a good Pro Day throwing the ball. QB * Andrew Luck of Stanford had a strong performance, showing fine athleticism and football smarts to compete for early NFL playing time. RB Doug Martin of Boise St had a very good showing and is a complete back who will push for immediate pro playing time. RB *Lamar Miller of Miami ran in the low 4.40s and caught the ball well. He helped his cause nicely. RB David Wilson of Virginia Tech tested off the charts in most drills and helped his cause as expected. WR * Stephen Hill of Georgia Tech had an outstanding effort that included a sub 4.40 time and over a 11’ broad jump and just under 40” vertical leap. Scouts will do extensive work on him going into his Pro Day. WR Chris Owusu of Stanford ran well and helped himself. At interviews he stated he is still interested in football despite multiple concussions.

OT *Matt Kalil of Southern Cal and OG * David DeCastro of Stanford were both impressive and solidified their #1 selection. Both are NFL ready and will be off the board early in the first round. OG Amini Silatolu of Midwestern St (Tx) had a strong week that a small college lineman needs to show his level of development. He combines quickness and power and grades out a starting interior lineman.

DT * Fletcher Cox of Mississippi St had a big performance and helped his stock significantly. He has a great combination of power and quickness with the versatility to play in either front. DT * Dontari Poe of Memphis was simply awesome at 346 lbs. and running a sub 5.0 time. Cox and Poe head an outstanding defensive tackle class that will highlight the NFL Draft 2012. LB Mychal Kendricks of California displayed top athleticism with speed, quickness and strength. He is smaller than the prototypical backer and needed the effort. Two junior cornerbacks Josh Robinson of Central Florida and Stephon Gilmore of South Carolina ran very well. Robinson was a little known corner who tests better than he plays. Gilmore is a fine athlete with speed and size and could warrant a late #1 pick off the strong performance.

Two receivers that fell significantly were junior Mohamed Sanu of Rutgers and senior Kendall Wright of Baylor. Both ran poorly. Sanu ran over a 4.65 time. He is not a burner, though he was expected to hit at least the mid 4.55 time area. His March 21st Pro Day at Rutgers is huge for him to establish himself as a Day two prospect. Wright was overhyped on TV as a possible sub 4.40 sprinter. Nonsense. He is probably a sub 4.50 and will probably prove it at the Baylor workout. He is a legitimate vertical threat but putting him in elite class is bad scouting. TE * Dwayne Allen of Clemson ran in the 4.90 time area that makes his Pro Day vital for him to earn a top 100 selection.

LB * Vontaze Burfict of Arizona St continues his descent that has developed over the 2011 season that culminated with a bowl game suspension. He ran poorly and looked average in drills. His stock is in a free fall that only a strong Pro Day corrects. Junior CB Cliff Harris of Oregon is another athlete who came up very short of expectations. His final season suspension was a red flag and a poor performance in Indy leaves huge questions about his pro playing career.

QB Robert Griffin III Highlights NFL Combine Workout

NFL Combine 2012 Workouts

The NFL Combine 2012 is completing workout drills Monday/ Tuesday for over 300 athletes at the week long event.

The NFL Combine process should establish what you should already know on 80-90% of the athletes after a long scouting resume begun on prospects as underclassmen. The Combine must verify those facts and which players fail to show the skill sets necessary to make the jump to the pro game. The 10-20% variance on performance is the work that leaves NFL clubs with quick homework on prospects who either over or under performed from their norm. That’s what makes the NFL Draft process what it is.

March Newsletter will have an extensive NFL Combine and Veteran Free Agency Reports plus updated Mock Draft

NFL Combine 2012 - Player Performances

Baylor QB Robert Griffin had an outstanding NFL Combine performance that probably guaranteed a top 2-3 selection this April. Griffin ran an excellent 4.41 time in the 40-yard sprint and also posted a 10’ broad jump and a 39” vertical jump. He was impressive in interviews and a kid with the athletic and mental talent to become a highly rated NFL passer.

He may not pass blue chip passer Andrew Luck in the draft process, but will probably cause much discussion among top five clubs with a trade highly probable in the top three selections. Luck had a good workout that included a 4.67 time with a 36” vertical leap that duplicated Cam Newton’s performance at the NFL Combine 2011. Neither Luck or Griffin threw at the event and will wait until their Pro Days in late March.

DT Dontari Poe of Memphis had an excellent workout. He was time in the 4.98 time and did 44 reps in the lifting after weighting in at 346 lbs. at just under 6’5” He did an amazing 1.70 time in the ten year split and also did a 29.5” VL and 8’9” BJ which is incredible for the size. He is a kid who solidified a top 25 selection with many clubs back tracking on the redshirt junior from Conference USA. Poe fits both fronts and is a fast rising prospect. DT Kendall Reyes of UConn had an outstanding performance that included a 4.95 time with 36 reps, 34.5” vertical leap and 9’5” broad jump. DE/LB Melvin Ingram of South Carolina had a strong workout and is one of the more diverse defenders in years. He ran a 4.79 time at 264 lbs. and under 6’2”. He had a 34.5” VL and 9’7” BJ with reps in the lifting. The 3-4 defensive clubs are working overtime on this prospect. This is a kid who can play both up and down and gives a DC a unique athlete to create different pre snap fronts to give a defense a huge advantage.

Pro Day Schedule Follows NFL Combine

In a few weeks, every NFL team and scores of media members along with 328 college prospects will attend the NFL 2012 Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, In.

Photo - LB Courtney Upshaw - Alabama

The NFL Combine is scheduled from February 22-28. The Pro Day schedule will start only four days later when Missouri University will hold the first on campus workout for NFL prospects.

Pro Day workouts are held on campus at school facilities. The interview and medical testing components are addressed at the NFL Combine. The athletic drills, 40-yard dash, vertical leap, broad jump, bench press, 3-cone drill, etc. can take place at either event. It has become a chance for athletes not invited to the NFL Combine to show their talent in front of NFL personnel decision-makers.

Interestingly, the Pro Day dates for Stanford and Baylor are both scheduled for March 22nd with the top passers Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III both expected to perform. They are the top two QBs with Luck most likely the top overall selection and Griffin probably going in the top four or five overall choices. National champion Alabama's Pro Day was announced yesterday, as well.

Richardson, Randle, Kirkpatrick & Claiborne Join NFL Draft

Richardson, Randle, Kirkpatrick & Claiborne Join Underclassmen Group - Pro Prospects 2012 - Updated Jan. 15th
Ranked by value

Photo - RB Trent Richardson - Alabama

Today is the final declaration date for the NFL Draft 2012. The ranks of the underclassmen added many blue chip prospects with players from the national champion title game with Alabama’s Trent Richardson, Dre Kirkpatrick and Donta Hightower and LSU’s Morris Claiborne, Reuben Randle and Michael Brockers all opted to declare for the NFL Draft 2012. Richardson is coming off an outstanding performance where he was the workhorse for the Tide ground game.

Kirkpatrick, Hightower, Claiborne and Bookers all strengthen a talented defensive group that should dominate the early rounds of the draft. Kirkpatrick and Claiborne are the top two cornerbacks and figure in the top of the first round. There postseason performances will determine who emerges as the top overall corner prospect. LB Hightower was a key defender in the dominant Tide defense and is expected to be among the top linebackers and possible 1st round selection with a strong postseason. DT Brockers was a surprising addition to this class. He has excellent physical skills that will warrant an early selection despite raw talent at this point of his career. He has enormous upside potential as an interior defender.

The BCS national title game will produce several blue chip underclassmen that will have a huge impact on the early rounds of the NFL Draft 2012. The national title game has produced 5 top prospects for the NFL Draft 2012 with most players already having made their decisions about turning pro.

We will have daily updates to the list this week with an extensive underclassmen report in our January 2012 Newsletter out next week. Players have three days after the January 15th deadline to rescind their decision and return to the college ranks. LSU wideout Russell Shepard has already changed his mind and returned to the college ranks for his final season in college.
