Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver said Saturday he still works with and enjoys riding horses off the field and after he signs with an NFL team he expected to buy property with a barn to have horses.

Houston defensive lineman Ed Oliver said he believed he would be better in the NFL as a three technique defensive tackle, but if he was asked to play linebacker he would do that. "If I'm getting paid to play linebacker, guess what I'm going to play linebacker," Oliver said.

Usually the 40-yard dash grabs plenty of the attention at the NFL scouting combine, but Missouri wide receiver Emanuel Hall may have made some history Saturday. His standing broad jump was 11-feet, 9-inches. My personal charts go back to the '87 combine -- the first one in Indianapolis -- and I believe Hall's effort is the best-ever by a wide receiver and second-best overall behind Byron Jones' 12-3 in 2015. I have former Connecticut safety Obi Melifonwu at 11-8 in 2017 as the former No. 2.

No running backs ran the 40-yard dash in under 4.4 seconds at the NFL combine on Friday. Oklahoma State's Justice Hill ran the fastest time, putting up a 4.40, with Temple's Ryquell Armstead (4.45), Florida's Jordan Scarlett (4.47) and Ohio State's Mike Weber (4.47) following Hill. Top-ranked running back Josh Jacobs has a groin injury and did not compete in on-field workouts, but his former Alabama teammate Damien Harris ran a 4.57 in the 40.
