Ohio State DE Chase Young Will Reportedly Skip Drills at 2020 NFL Combine

  Ohio State DE Chase Young Will Reportedly Skip Drills at 2020 NFL Combine If you were getting ready to watch Chase Young throw up 225 pounds on the bench and fly down the field in the 40-yard dash, we've got some bad news for you. It's not going to happen. According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Ohio State standout will not participate in any of the drills over in Indianapolis this week. Ohio St defensive end Chase Young, the top prospect in @MoveTheSticks’ Top 50, is not planning to take part in drills for the NFL Scouting Combine this week, source says. He will be here for interviews and medicals, though.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 24, 2020 Well, that's kind of a bummer. However, you can't blame Young at all for this decision.

The 2020 NFL scouting combine is now in the books. His resume, now complete with size, impressive testing and production, coupled with his positional versatility makes Clemson’ s Isaiah Simmons turned in one of the best combine performances among offball linebackers in NFL history.

Here are six that might come to light at the combine His blocking is better than most tight end prospects this year , and he profiles as a lead tight end like Kittle. Kittle ran the 40-yard dash in 4.52 seconds and had a 123-inch broad jump at Lucas Oil Stadium, displaying his impressive If Trautman comes close to those numbers , he’ll go much higher than 146th, where Kittle was picked by the 49ers.

There were plenty of head-turning players at this year’s NFL Scouting Combine. We saw amazing individual performances from each position, including impossibly quick mountains disguised as offensive linemen and punters destroying what we thought we knew about the bench press.

Several players showed up and improved their draft stock, and you can read about our winners and losers from the combine right here.

But if you just want to get into the thick of the numbers, well, we’ve got you covered for that too.

4.27: Henry Ruggs III’s blazing fast 40-yard dash

Sure, Ruggs didn’t beat the all-time 40-yard dash record of 4.22 seconds set by John Ross III, but Ruggs was still explosively quick. Despite a bit of a slow start on his first attempt, Ruggs finished with a ridiculous 4.27 in the 40, fastest of any player this year and within striking distance of Ross.

Which NFL draft prospect will run fastest 40-yard dash time at 2020 combine?

  Which NFL draft prospect will run fastest 40-yard dash time at 2020 combine? The hype surrounding the 40-yard dash has often outpaced the drill's utility, but there are still several NFL draft prospects poised to create a stir.The Ole Miss safety wasn't a widely known prospect before the 2019 NFL scouting combine, never having made an all-conference team during his tenure as a three-year starter. By the time he completed the final 40-yard dash of the event, however, he had many evaluators double-checking their notes about the player who set the bar with a 4.29-second run, the ninth-best mark of anyone since 2006.

These prospects weren't being talked about much before the combine , but that has all changed.

These are the fastest 40-yard dash times in combine history, since times became officially tracked in 2003:

1. John Ross III: 4.22 seconds (2017)

2. Chris Johnson: 4.24 seconds (2008)

T-3. Dri Archer, Jerome Mathis: 4.26 seconds (2014, 2005)

T-5. Henry Ruggs III, Marquise Goodwin, Stanford Routt, Tyrone Calico: 4.27 seconds (2020, 2014, 2005, 2003)

Not bad for a guy who was dissatisfied with his attempt and who technically fell short of expectations. Ruggs is still one of the fastest players to ever work out at the combine, but if you think speed is all he’s got going from him, you’d be wrong.

36.5: Tristan Wirfs’ record-setting jump

Offensive linemen usually aren’t the most exciting bunch to watch at the combine, but that changed this year. Some of the most athletic offensive tackles we’ve ever seen put up huge numbers at the combine, and Iowa’s Wirfs was the best of them.

The 6 best NFL comparisons you’ll hear at the combine

  The 6 best NFL comparisons you’ll hear at the combine Draft prospects, meet your NFL counterparts.Here are six that might come to light at the combine:

The NFL Scouting Combine (March 3- 6 on NFL Network) is a vital part of the evaluation process for draft prospects. What transpires in the on-field workouts can oftentimes provide a cautionary tale. Prospects can profoundly impact their draft status with strong combine performances.

Offensive linemen usually aren’t the biggest draw at the NFL Combine , but this year ’ s draft features a talented class. We learned much more about them from their performance in combine However, the rest of his workout numbers were impressive enough to keep him at the top of draft boards this year .

Wirfs measured in at 6’5 and 320 pounds, and was an absolute beast when it came to the jumping drills. His 36.5-inch vertical leap was the highest ever by an offensive lineman. He also went 10’1 on the broad jump, which tied him for the longest ever by an offensive lineman.

Those jumps alone are insane for a man that size. But on top of that, he ran a 4.85-second 40-yard dash, the fastest ever by a player weighing 320 pounds or more.

183.5: The total inches jumped by Donovan Peoples-Jones

Peoples-Jones was a combine star this year. The receiver is begging to break out as a rookie, especially given the number of inaccurate passes thrown his way at Michigan. The former five-star recruit certainly helped himself rise up draft boards with a strong all-around performance, but where he stood out the most was in the jumping drills.

NFL Combine workouts continued Sunday, as the defensive backs in attendance took their turns on the bench press to put their strength on display for the 32 teams in attendance. Running backs and offensive linemen benched on Thursday. Wide receivers and tight ends hit the weights on Friday.

Peoples-Jones led all players in both the broad jump and the vertical leap. His broad jump was 11’7, an inch above Southern Illinois safety Jeremy Chinn and TCU receiver Jalen Reagor in second place. His vertical leap was something special, though:

With the 44.5-inch vertical, Peoples-Jones is tied for third all-time. He trails Chris Conley and Donald Washington, both of whom made it to 45 inches. In total, Peoples-Jones accounted for 183.5 inches of jumping at the combine.

25: Punter (!) Michael Turk’s reps on the bench press

Many players elect not to take part in the 225-pound bench press at the combine. Still, there were several big performers in the weight room this year, including the 44 reps recorded by Netane Muti, an offensive lineman out of Fresno State. He had the most reps of any player, with OL Simon Stepaniak of Indiana in second with 37.

But it was a punter — yes, a punter — who stole the show on the bench press early on. Turk, of Arizona State, wowed when he put up 25 reps on the bench press:

Watch: Tide's Ruggs runs blazing 4.28 40-yard dash at Combine

  Watch: Tide's Ruggs runs blazing 4.28 40-yard dash at Combine Henry Ruggs was expected to be the fastest receiver available in the 2020 NFL Draft. In his first attempt at the 40-yard dash, the Alabama wideout ran the distance in 4.28 seconds. That's blazing fast.

He did more reps than 19 different offensive linemen and 21 different defensive linemen this year. Punters aren’t supposed to be that strong!

364: Mekhi Becton’s record run for his weight

While Wirfs had arguably the best combine for an offensive lineman, he wasn’t the only one of the big fellas to show up. There was also Louisville’s Becton, who earned himself the honor of being the fastest combine player above 350 pounds — ever.

If you’re wondering what it looks like when a giant boulder runs the 40-yard dash, well, here you go:

Becton officially ran a 5.10-second 40-yard dash, which was good for 13th-best among offensive linemen. All of the guys who had better times weighed significantly less, however. Becton’s time is the best ever for a player over 350 pounds, beating the previous record of 5.18 in 2014. That was set by Daniel McCullers, who weighed 12 pounds less than Becton. The record for 360-pounders was 5.30, which Becton smashed easily.

Report: Tua left Dolphins meeting wondering about fit

  Report: Tua left Dolphins meeting wondering about fit Tua Tagovailoa felt a cold shoulder from the Miami Dolphins when the two parties met at the NFL combine.The former Alabama signal-caller reportedly left his visit feeling uncertain about whether the Dolphins want him to be their franchise quarterback, and the 2018 Heisman runner-up is questioning the club's interest.

3.97: John Reid’s sub-4-second shuttle

The 20-yard shuttle is one of the best indications of a player’s quickness and agility. The motions used in the drill can give any coach or analyst a good idea of what kind of defensive back you’re dealing with, and are useful for running backs and wide receivers as well. Generally speaking, a 20-yard shuttle for a skill position should be around 4.5 seconds.

This year, several players put up excellent times in the low 4.1s, but it was Reid, a cornerback out of Penn State, who led the pack.

Reid was the only player to finish with a 20-yard shuttle of under 4 seconds, with an official time of 3.97 seconds. The next-fastest was 4.02 by Myles Bryant of Washington. Reid’s time doesn’t put him in the top five all time, but he wasn’t too far off. The record is held by Jason Allen, who went 3.81 seconds in 2006 — the same time set by receiver Brandin Cooks in 2014.

Key takeaways from Day 4 of NFL combine .
The 2020 NFL Scouting Combine wrapped up Sunday with defensive backs taking the field for drills. As a number of prospects had plenty to gain or lose in the event's final day, here are four takeaways from the action.
