On-field workouts at the NFL scouting combine wrap up today with defensive backs and SEC products have made plenty of impressions upon scouts in the last week. Once again, the combine dominates the morning links:
The multi-talented (on and off the field) Georgia receiver Chris Conley stood out amongst the receivers in Indianapolis. See the highlights of his performance here. Some might call the performance "dazzling."
Kentucky defensive end Bud Dupree, who is projected as a linebacker, impressed at the combine with strong marks in the vertical jump and 40-yard dash.
Mississippi State's defensive stalwarts did well for themselves: Preston Smith posted a good 40, broad jump and vertical while Benardrick McKinney produced solid marks in the vertical, the 40 and the broad jump.
LSU defensive end Danielle Hunter clocked a 4.57-second 40, the fastest time among defensive linemen.
Todd Gurley spoke with the media at the NFL scouting combine, his first time in front of reporters since his autograph controversy and owned up to his actions. "I made a dumb mistake and I suffered the consequences."
Missouri defensive end Shane Ray was ejected from the SEC championship game for his hit on Alabama quarterback Blake Sims, but it turns out that the two players train together and have a friendly relationship. Speaking of Ray, he didn't work out at the combine and instead only participated in interviews. He'll show his physical skills during Mizzou's March 19 pro day.
What is it like to face Alabama? Six players from the combine offer their take.
Remember Michael Dyer, the former Auburn running back? Three years after leaving, Dyer participated in the combine and put up a solid performance, including a 4.58-second 40-yard-dash and a 26 repetitions in the bench press, which was best among running backs.
Auburn receiver Sammie Coates ranked among the top five receivers with his marks four individual drills at the combine.
