2012 NFL Combine Top Offensive Performances

2012 NFL Combine Top Offensive Performances

Dudes getting it done and filling their pockets..

WINNERS

Robert Griffin,QB,Baylor III
Griffin III might have just “upped” the asking price for the number two overall pick after posting a sub 4.4 40 at the Combine. The former track star possesses elite top end speed for the position and despite not being nearly as sudden in the open field as Eagles QB Mike Vick, he proved that he has the straight-line burst to create big in space. Add in the fact that he “wowed” everyone this week on the board and you have a guy who isn’t going to get past the second overall pick.
Potential top-2 pick

Cordy Glenn,OL,Georgia
It’s rare of see a guy at Glenn’s dimensions (6-5, 345) run in the sub 5.0-second range and display the kind of overall athletic ability he possesses. Glenn also exhibited “plus” length (35 ¾) as well and despite not being the most fleet of feet laterally, you can still see the initial quickness/burst needed to get off the ball and into contact quickly.
Potential top-20 pick

Amini Silatolu,OL,Midwestern State
He didn’t run the most impressive of 40 times (5.4 range). However, Silatolu showcased the ability to drop his pad level, maintain his balance and cleanly change directions laterally during positional drills. He’s got an explosive element to his game when asked to mirror/re-direct and looks like a guy capable of starting early during his NFL career.
Potential top-50 pick

Tommy Streeter,WR,Miami
Size/speed wins on draft day and at 6-5, 219-pounds Streeter was impressive running an official 4.4-second forty. He’s a guy who is still developing at the position, but with a rare physical skill set, he displayed the athleticism needed at the Combine to rise.
Potential top 75-pick

Stephon Hill,WR,Georgia Tech
The 6-4, 215-pound wide out blitzed his 40 in the mid 4.3 range and at his size could now make a run at the back end of round one. He’s an explosive leaper as well who can routinely win down the field in jump ball situations. Plus, he displayed good quickness, posting one of the top short shuttle times as well at the position. Size/speed gets you drafted high and Hill has an elite combo.
Potential late first/second round pick

Kashif Moore,WR,UConn
The underrated speedster showed well with a 40-time in the low 4.4 range. However, it was his elite 43.5-inch vertical, which was tops in the group that really opened some eyes. He also posted one of the fastest short shuttle times at the Combine, proving he possesses the quicks to go along with his top end speed.
Potential late round pick

Donald Stephenson,OT,Oklahoma
Overall, Stephenson was the most explosive offensive lineman at the Combine this year. He ran the fastest forty (4.94) and recorded the best jumps in both the broad (9’6) and vertical (35.5). And at 6-6, 312-pounds he now gives himself a chance to get drafted late because of his “plus” athletic skill set.
Potential late round pick

James Hanna,TE,Oklahoma
The 6-4, 252-pound target ran in the high 4.4 range, posted a 36-inch vertical and a 10-foot-2-inch broad jump. He did look a bit unnatural at times catching the football, but showcased natural range down the field and overall it was an impressive display of athleticism from Hanna on Saturday.
Potential late round pick

Greg Childs,WR,Arkansas
It’s been a rough year and half for Childs with all the injuries. However, the big target showed well during workouts Sunday. And what stood out the most was his 1.5-second ten-yard split. One of the fastest in the group and a great number for a receiver of his size 6-3, 219), displaying his ability to play fast out of his breaks.
Potential late round pick

Michael Egnew,TE,Missouri
Say what you want about Egnew not playing nearly as fast/quick on tape as his 40-time indicated (4.6). But, the guy still had one heck of a workout. He was one of the top performers at his position in the short shuttle, three-cone, broad and vertical jump.
Potential mid round pick

Some Just shine brighter when the lights are on.
