If by some chance Barkley is still there when the Browns are on the clock with the fourth overall selection, then they can consider it. "I'd say that's pretty important for a left tackle". "Obviously that's not the case".
With Badgley attending this week's NFL Scouting Combine, it probably should come as no surprise the two former teammates are again lighting up the phone lines. As we saw here, Saquon Barkley did and #Orlando Brown did not.
His draft stock soared, though it was already high to begin with, after a domineering performance in Indy, generating buzz that he could be the first back to go number one overall since 1995 when fellow former Penn State star Ki-Jana Carter was picked by the Bengals. You always go back to Terrell Davis and those people. "This guy's just fun to watch'".
Gesicki turned heads at the NFL Combine on Saturday with a 129-inch broad jump along with a 4.54 in the 40-yard dash, both of which were tops among tight ends. He ran by far the slowest 40-yard dash time of any OL: 5.85 seconds, "historically bad" according to Mayock. Freak. Then he ripped off 29 reps in the bench press, which not only led the running backs, but was more than all but five offensive linemen.
"Obviously, people have their opinion about who fits better in the National Football League and that's fine", Barrett said Friday at the National Football League combine. His production in college doesn't stack up with numerous great young running backs now in the NFL, and a quarterback-driven league doesn't generally warrant drafting a running back with an early first round pick.
Afterward, Barkley confessed to some disappointment with his numbers, not unusual for him. O'Neill ran an impressive 4.82 in the 40-yard dash and displayed very quick feet and athleticism in the field drills.
WR DaeSean Hamilton: After outstanding performances at the Shrine Game and Senior Bowl, Hamilton bypassed running the 40 but participated in position drills. "Kalen Ballage is big enough to run between the tackles (6'1", 228) but also has soft hands that he displayed in pass-catching drills on Friday. His goal Friday was to "make sure a ball didn't touch the ground". To me, the game film should outweigh combine statistics.
Monday: Defensive backs take the field for on-field workouts. "Pulled a lot, did a lot of counter, hit some inside zone and outside zone, but that was more of my junior year when we had running back Aaron Jones...my last year, we focused more on gap scheme play".
Offensive guard is seen my many draft experts as a priority need for the Falcons, but they could look to add depth anywhere along the offensive line, making Friday's workout of particular interest.
"We're really close. We still talk pretty much every day, especially through this whole process", Badgley said.
