Orlando Brown likely to drop out of first round after poor combine

Orlando Brown likely to drop out of first round after poor combine

Rather than to take the heat of the spotlight that comes with being Cleveland's first top-20 quarterback since 1999 alone, said passer would at least have the opportunity to share the stage with the widely-regarded best talent on the table. Here's a look at the prospects who stood out.

As we see the scouts, general managers and coaches furiously scribbling down notes and liberally using their stop-watches, one would have to think that the NFL Combine is the ideal science.

In his passing drills, he appeared to be more comfortable throwing the ball down the field, hitting his receivers in stride down the seam.

According to Peter King of MMQB, Browns head coach Hue Jackson wants the team to sign former Cincinnati Bengals backup quarterback AJ McCarron to be his starting quarterback, instead of starting a rookie from the 2018 NFL Draft.

James (6-3, 215) and Alabama's Minkah Fitzpatrick (6-1, 201) are considered the top two safeties in the draft. It should be noted the junior completed 15 reps on the bench press. Detroit has free agency to sort out before the draft. And he was nothing special at running back despite going in the second round of the 2007 draft. During drills, he looked fluid and showed dependable hands. He had 74 tackles and a career-high three forced fumbles as a redshirt senior.

WR Antonio Callaway: Eyebrows were raised after Callaway declared for the draft despite being sidelined last season with a host of significant legal issues. A number of players put on a show in the 40-yard dash, all vying to be the best of the bunch. That's the great unknown heading toward April. Moore checked all the boxes at the Combine starting with his testing results. His stock is on the rise after an impressive Combine where he measured in at 6-feet tall and clocked a time of 4.42 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

20-yard shuttle run: Defensive back Tony Brown (Alabama), 4.11 seconds; wide receiver Robert Foster (Alabama), 4.20; defensive back Siran Neal (Eufaula, Jacksonville State), 4.28. That will change after this weekend.

After a truly mind-bending combine performance, some thought Campbell might rise even higher than where he went to the Raiders in the fourth round. Quandre Diggs can play nickel or strong safety now due to his physicality, but he ran just a 4.56-second 40 in 2013.

Vertical leap: Defensive back Siran Neal (Eufaula, Jacksonville State), 40.5 inches; running back Kerryon Johnson (Madison Academy, Auburn), 40; running back Bo Scarbrough (Northridge, Alabama), 40. What's more, he had a 35.5-inch vertical and managed 10 feet, five inches in the broad jump.

Tony also mentioned Chark's blazing 40-yard dash time. He'd proven in college he had the makings to become an elite deep threat. The Browns' sum of 117.5 draft points is 162% above the National Football League average, which is a mere 44.8 draft points. Three of those four weighed less than 195 pounds as Sutton weighed in at 218! His 40 time of 4.52 was impressive for a 227-pounder.

Just over 25 years later, it's time for Dorsey to put down the homework and to make some history himself. His broad jump was the best among the running backs.

Currently, the Giants have the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and some think they are sitting in a really good spot with that pick given all of the options available to them. During on-field drills, he was rangy for a man of his size.
