Catching up with Big 12 DBs at the combine

The defensive backs took their turn at the combine on Tuesday, the event's final day before players scatter to work out before their respective pro days.

Here's a look at the Big 12's top performers in each event on Tuesday:

40-yard dash

  • None

225-pound bench press

Vertical jump

Broad jump

  • None

Three-cone drill

  • Vaccaro, 6.78 seconds, No. 12 among DBs

20-yard shuttle

  • Vaccaro, 4.06 seconds, No. 4 among DBs

60-yard shuttle

  • None

Obviously, a very, very quiet day from the Big 12 defensive backs in attendance on Tuesday. You can see the full results here. The only other Big 12 defensive back working out on Tuesday was Oklahoma's Tony Jefferson. The league sent 30 players to the combine this week, but just three were defensive backs.

You can see the measurables that make Kenny Vaccaro more than just an instinctive player. He has those instincts, but he can move with the best of them and has that quickness required at the position. Not hard at all to see why he's a first-round talent.
