With the NFL Combine just around the corner, we bring five prospects to the table Jerry Reese and the New York Giants should be all over.
Draft season is upon us yet again. On Feb. 28, the NFL Combine begins.
Every single year there are always prospects whose showings at the NFL Combine impact their draft stocks.
Before the combine, Johnny Manziel was a fringe first rounder. Then he went and dominated the whole event. In the 40-yard dash, Johnny Football dazzled with an official 4.68 time — although his unofficial time of 4.56 is even more inspiring. Not only that, but it was reported that he won over multiple teams with his interviews, which was enough to earn a first-round draft selection by the Cleveland Browns.
Not all NFL Combine experiences are positive. To understand this, one just needs to see what happened to Landon Collins.
He was one of the top safeties in his draft class in the 40-yard dash, running a 4.53. While that should be enough to raise one’s stock, it did not do enough for Collins. His three cone drill, 20-yard shuttle and 60-yard shuttle were all disappointing. All of this combined with his weight led to him falling out of the first round conversation. However, it was a blessing for the New York Giants, who were able to scoop him up in the second round.
