ESPN NFL draft experts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay recap how the best QBs and pass-catchers -- including Dwayne Haskins and D.K. Metcalf -- fared, and Scouts Inc. analyst Steve Muench breaks down the under-the-radar prospects who are rising up draft boards. We'll also look ahead to Day 3 of workouts, when the defensive linemen and linebackers will participate in testing and drills on Sunday.
Note: Oklahoma's Kyler Murray did not participate in any drills or throwing workouts Saturday.
What was the biggest takeaway from workouts?
McShay: The wide receiver group was more explosive than expected. There were nine wide receivers who ran sub-4.40 40-yard dashes. That's just crazy. DJ Chark was the only one last year. Ole Miss' D.K. Metcalf stole the show with his 4.33 40-yard dash and 40.5-inch vertical at 6-foot-3 and 228 pounds, and I saw him drop only one pass during route-running drills. Ohio State's Parris Campbell and UMass' Andy Isabella ran the fastest 40s (4.31) of the combine so far, while Campbell also had great jumps with a 40-inch vertical and 11-foot-3 broad jump. A bunch of receivers made money today.
Kiper: If receivers like Tavon Austin and John Ross can go in the top 10 in the draft after running blazing 40s, why can't Parris Campbell be a first-round pick? The 6-foot Ohio State wide receiver ran a 4.31 40 on Saturday, which tied for the fastest of any receiver in Indianapolis. He also had a 40-inch vertical jump. Campbell, my fifth-ranked receiver coming into the week, is a great kid who had a solid career -- he had 90 catches and 12 touchdowns last season. He is now in the discussion for Day 1.
Muench: As impressive as the receivers were today, there are four who didn't work out and are worth mentioning. Oklahoma's Marquise Brown, the No. 1-ranked receiver, didn't run because of a Lisfranc injury. Although they aren't ranked nearly as high as Brown, Georgia State's Penny Hart (snub), Baylor's Jalen Hurd (knee) and Colorado State's Preston Williams (off-field issues) are talented prospects who also didn't work out today. When you factor all that in, this might be the deepest receiver class since 2014.
